Need an Evaluation: Stronger medicine than what is available over the counter, Motrin and tylenol, (acetaminophen) which you can use as long as you are not allergic or have kidney or liver problems respectively. You can take them as directed on the bottles and you can take them together. The best thing you can do is get health insurance ($350/mo-try: esurance.Com) and get an evaluation. Good luck!

Be seen: 4 months is a very long time. You should have an MRI if you don't already and see a spine surgeon for evaluation and possible surgery! all the best!

Pinched Nerve: I would suggest seeing a pain/spine specialist to evaluate you further to evaluate what level and what can be done to treat you. There are interventional treatments besides medications and surgeries that might reduce or eliminate the pain altogether.

12-15 hours per day: On average, an infant will sleep roughly 12-15 hours per day. For most babies, that will be a combination of 10-12 hours at night and 2-4 hours of napping throughout the day.

See your doctor: It could be your ligaments stretching. This does happen in order to accomodate the baby's passage through the vaginal canal. But you should get evaluated by your doctor.

Must my child eat a balanced diet every day?

Good luck trying: The balanced diet is an adult idea, & a good one to practice for your lifetime.However it is a bit impractical when you deal with kids. Breast milk is balanced, but get past weaning & you must deal with a kid with his/her own ideas about eating. I like to look on kids from the vantage point of a balanced week rather than meal or day. Before school age their brain directs their cravings & does ok.

A 39-year-old female asked:

My boyfriend & I are trying to get pregnant. I'm on Zoloft (sertraline) & my doc is having me get off it slowly; 1 pill every other day for a month & then 1 pill every 3rd day until gone. Does this sound reasonable?

Yes, it's great.: It's best to taper off the zoloft (sertraline) and your doctor has an excellent plan.
