Q and A


Can I give baby muthi wenyoni?

Hi, I am HIV positive, my son is 6 weeks old and he tested HIV negative at birth. He is also on nevirapine. I was given co-trimaxazole at my 6 weeks visit at the clinic. Can I start giving him muthi wenyoni and gripe water? Also I wanna stop breast feeding and start giving him co-trimaxazole is it safe to do so?


Hi, how are you doing?

Congratulations on having a baby. As baby is older than 1 month it isa safe to give them muthi wenyoni and gripe water.

Yes you can stop breastfeeding. Will you be starting to formula feed instead. It is okay to give baby co-trimoxazole regardless of how they are being fed.
