Anxiety and menses: For some women, the symptoms of PMS can vary. If you suspect pregnancy, do a home test. Keep track of how you are feeling and see your doctor if this persists as you may need further evaluation. Feel better soon!

A 33-year-old member asked:

How many times per day should I have my baby do "tummy time"?

2 doctor answers5 doctors weighed in
Dr. Evelyn Hurvitz
Pediatrics 37 years experience
Often: The more "tummy time" your baby gets, the rounder her head will be and the easier it will be for her to learn to roll, sit and crawl. Tummy time - as much as possible!

Depends on his age: Babies need less sleep as they age. The following is the average amount of sleep babies need at different ages; each individual baby is slightly different. Newborns: 16-18 hr/day (half during the day, half at night) 3 months: 15 hr/ day 9 months: 14 hr/day (but now it's 10 hr at night, 4 during the day) 2 years old: 13 hr/day (most at night with a 2 hour nap) 4 year old 11 hr (no nap).
A 30-year-old member asked:

Son had chicken pox vac 11 days ago. Wen to bbq party today, some infants there. Are they safe?

Dr. James Ferguson
Pediatrics 46 years experience
Yes: Chicken pox vaccine has been studied since the late 70's and a wealth of knowledge has been accumulated. The vaccine virus is a much weakened strain that has the same structure as the wild virus so it can turn on the immune system but seldom cause harm. In some cases an infant may shed vaccine virus, but normal kids have negligable risk.

A 33-year-old member asked:

patient" currently on 20 mg Prozac (fluoxetine) and 600 mg gabapentin (a.M.) and 600 gabapentin (p.M.) for past 2 mos. Anxiety rising. Feels lost. Wants to run away. ?

Sounds like: Sounds like this patient's psychiatrist would like to see the patient again soon, because Prozac (fluoxetine) + off-label use of Gabapentin does not seem to be having its desired effect. Hopefully this patient is also in psychotherapy as well -- many ways to deal with anxiety can be learned there.
