About

Bio

I have 12 years of experience in pediatrics caring for children in clinics and in the hospital. For the past 7 years I have focused in hospital based medicine caring for patients ranging from premature infants through teenagers. I have special interests in the care of children with special needs. I am also a mother to four children, including a daughter with special needs

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.

No sugar: I would not put sugar in the food. It's better for your son to get used to the way food tastes without the added sugar. Babies can be picky at first and sometimes you have to keep offering a food repeatedly before they learn to like the flavor. It's ok to try a different food for a while and then go back to peas. Eating food is new for him and you. Just give him time.

Take a test: It seems unlikely, since you have not even missed your period yet , and those symptoms you describe typically don't show up until after a missed period. However, the best way to be sure is to take a pregnancy test.

Not with treatment: Without treatment, about 40% of babies born to hepatitis b positive mothers will get hepatitis b. However, there is a vaccine and immunoglobulin treatment that the baby should get soon after birth which can prevent the baby from getting hepatitis b. Make sure your OB and the baby's hospital doctor know about the hepatitis b so that they can treat the baby properly.
