  • No actual practical advice on technique here, mainly a discussion on the challenges of breastfeeding followed by ads for Tommie Tippie

  • My baby just turned 1 month and he’s been so gassy lately. We were in the hospital for awhile and he was fine there but it seems like as soon as we came home he’s suddenly gassy ��
    Thank you for another very helpful video ��

  • LOVE your videos! I am so glad you made a point about Gripe water, I had it on my registration list. I know there are other little baby medicines and postpartum medications that are suggested in other moms videos. Do you/ could you make a video of healthier more natural medicine alternatives?? EX: After Ease for contraction after labor, laxatives for after labor, baby shampoo, soap, sunscreen that has ingredients that moms should stay away from ingesting or putting on baby?? Thank you!

  • “babies magic tea” for babies is the best remedy to cure newborn baby’s tummy issues. its herbal ingredients do really fine to soothe the unsettled tummy and make them sleep through the night

  • With my son, my parents and I always reused the mixed bottles left over he didn’t finish. I never knew you had to throw them out, he did get thrush like 2 times. I wonder if this is from reusing them. I’m pregnant with my second and glad I know this and learned the formula feeding rules.

  • My precious little baby is 26 months and refuses formula she loves to be breastfed and nursed it’s a great way to bond with your baby, my little one is in my arms at this moment being gently rocked while feeding, it’s so precious to hold your baby as they grow up far to quick ����

  • My baby is almost 3 weeks old and is uncomfortable at night time and will kick legs and arms while grunting and seems so uncomfortable. I assume it’s gas, but I’m not sure. He just seems super uncomfortable on his back until I put him on his tummy on my chest. He will then settle and quickly fall asleep on me. Any suggestions?!

  • I enjoy the video, however I wish that you would support independent baby shops, rather than revolving everything you recommend to the evil monopoly that is Amazon. ��

  • This is such a great video! My almost 1 month old doesn’t like to get burped or I’m bad at it. I feel like I can’t understand when it’s gas or colics etc. and when I burp I feel I’m not doing it enough. How long after I get a burp should I do it for?��
    Thank you for the tips!

  • I’m so glad you posted this video!!! For the probioticdo I take one as well as giving one to my baby? Or how do we go about trying this?

  • my son is 2 months already, i have done all these with success but thought i’d watch this anyways in case i missed anything:) thank you! happy dad

  • Love your channel! Two questions Do you recommend gas drops, and how quickly do you notice a change after giving baby probiotics?

  • Hi Bridget, thankyou for the rich and helpful content that you provide. I am new to YouTube having set up about 6 weeks ago. I’m a doula and family specialist in the uk. I have featured you in my channel. I have such a long way to go before your amazing success. Well done…your content is well needed for mums or as you guys say in America moms or mamas xx

  • I warmed up my babies bottle in the microwave my doctor said that it was alright. Also, they told me that I could leave a already made bottle in the fridge over night.

  • Water needs to be boiled first before adding the formula to make sure any bacteria its killed. After you boiled the water, you add the formula and then wait to cool down.

  • Would you be able to make a video or a series of videos of advice for those of us whom want a doula, but due to hospital restrictions due to CoVID 19 we cannot have one present if we want our spouse/birth partner in the delivery room. I have been reading books, reading articles, and watching videos, but I think I will need extra support and without a doula I may not get it. I am due in July.

    I have been breastfeeding only my one-month-old she started having less bowel movements everyday and she has gone up to three to four days without a bowel movement,
    I have read that it is not normal that breastfed babies should be pooping three to four times a day and then I have read that breastfed babies can go days without pooping because they use up everything and don’t have any waste…
    I am so confused I did give her a suppository to help her poop and it worked I thought she would have regular bowel movements after that but it’s already been 3 days again I’m thinking of calling her pediatrician thought I’d ask before I make an appointment
