Usually nausea: I see you have the component of OCD involved so you are likely to worry more than others. Foul smelling milk is usually spoiled, if it hasn't caused you stomach upset, that's fortunate. It would unlikely result in any serious harm. Smell the milk separately to figure out the source. When in doubt, you can replace the bottle you mix it in. Otherwise wash with good soap/water and smell the bottle.

A member asked:

How many times will my baby go to the bathroom each day?

Dr. Lisa Roberts
Pediatrics 23 years experience
Depends on the age of the child: In the early days after birth, the baby's system is just starting to work so the number of diapers is low. After about a week of age, most babies are making about 6 to 8 wet diapers per day. Many or most of those will contain stools. The stools transition from black color to bright yellow. As your baby gets older and starting taking solid foods, the frequency will decrease & color will change.

Should I worry that my baby is not always at the same percentile on the growth chart?

No: Babies often switch curves on a growth chart, depending on their activity levels, the time of day the measurement is taken, and the genetic potential for growth they are given by her parents. As long as your baby continues to grow, the growth curves are just guides.

Can someone get a burner and concussion at the same time from basketball?

Dr. William Goldie

Yes: Sudden stinging down arms or legs is often called a burner. Trauma to nerves in neck or shoulder can do this. Trauma to the head with confusion, nausea, and alteration in consciousness can be considered a concussion. Both types of symptoms may occur during a major trauma event.

I am 11 weeks into a daily exercise program, and starting to skip days. Any ideas on how to stay motivated?

Remember...: Remember why you started in the first place and how much better you felt while doing it. Also, schedule it as an appointment. Even if you don't want to do it, do 10 minutes. You can always find 10 minutes. Right?
