Help hold and burp: I can answer this as a father as well as a pediatrician. Sometimes, with a newborn you just don't have a lot of direct contact, because mom does most of the work. But, we can be a strong second string. We can make mom more comfortable, massage our babies during nursing, help with burping, and hold your baby right after he/she has it's belly full.

8c of any liquids: The typical recommended amount of fluid to take in daily is around 8 cups. That includes water, milk, juice, other beverages & liquid from foods like fruit. Thirst indicates too little. The ideal varies from day to day depending on heat, activity, etc. However, most women should try to drink a cup at and between each meal/snack and at bedtime to keep the fluid level steady, especially if pregnant.

A 27-year-old member asked:
I wear a pad everyday. Do I need surgery, or is there something else available?

Depends: I assume you are meaning a pad for vaginal bleeding. No matter your age, you should not be bleeding on a daily basis and this requires medical attention. If you are older, this could be a sign of cancer and needs to have a biopsy to fully evaluate this condition.

I have trouble remembering to take my oral medication every day. What's a good way to remember? What should I do if I forget a dose?

Pair it: Pair the medication with an activity you already do every day, like brushing your teeth. Put the bottle by your toothbrush. If you miss a dose, do not double up the next day. Just continue to take it as prescribed and if you miss a dose, you miss it.

No, rest is crucial: Periodsnof rest can be as important as the workouts themselves if you want to improve overall fitness (strength, endurance, speed).
