Patient discussion about baby

Q. My baby also got rash like me. Hi I am Modena. I am using my cousins iMedix ID to contact you all. I gave birth to male baby before 6 weeks. I am breast feeding him. Last night I tried a new salad in my diet. After a few minutes I noticed that I had an itchy rash over my cheeks and neck. I didn’t take any medicine, but it went away by itself within 1-2 hours. My baby also got rash a couple of hours later like me and it was cured after 2-3 hours. Will this happen again to him? What precautions I must take? I am scared.

A. I think you had a mild allergy due to herbs in the salad. Whatever you take inside your system will affect your baby through your milk feeding. So first check the food before you eat. He inherited your allergy and had the same reaction. But, there is nothing to worry about this. I suggest you to check with your Gynecologist.

Q. How can I prevent my baby developing Overweight? He’s gaining a lot of weight since birth, too much as the Dr. said…how can I prevent it?
