Yes/No: A general shower should be perfectly fine. I would not recommend any feminine wash till you are given the ok by your doctor.

How much sleep should my newborn get each day?

Dr. Marcus Degraw

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.
A 37-year-old member asked:

Should I be concerned about a bumpy crusting rash on my vagina while pregnant?

Yes: This should be mentioned to the doctor at the next OB visit. It may be nothing concerning, but one possibility for a "bump" that forms a small blister that then has a crust is herpes. Other possibilities can be infected hair follicles or yeast. If it is herpes, it could change your delivery plan or require antiviral medications during pregnancy.

Infection: Pneumonia and eye infections can occur in the baby. Pregnant women are usually screened for chlamydia during the pregnancy so that they can be treated before delivery of the baby.

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.
