How many different heart birth defects are there?

Specializes in Pediatrics
Several: There are several types of heart defects, but doctors usually classify them into several broad categories. Cyanotic defects cause your baby to turn cyanotic, or blue. Obstructive defects block the normal flow of blood through the heart and its associated blood vessels. Septal defects cause "holes" between the heart's chambers. And hypoplastic defects make one side of the heart smaller.

Will my breast milk provide a large enough supply of vitamin d?

No: Unfortunately, studies show that even if taking prenatal vitamins, breast milk does not secrete sufficient amounts of vit d for babies. It is very important for your baby to get at least 400 iu vit d per day. Ask your pediatrician about which product he/she recommends. Vit d is not onlygood for your baby's bones, but also helpful to decrease risk for diabetes, autoimmune problems & some cancers.

You need to ask the : Doc who did your surg as that doc knows how everything went and u didnt say what type of surg you had, laparoscopy, robot open? And did you have any problems after like bleeding or infection, etc. Or none, so call you surgeon and ask him or her, and don't go sue the doc unless there was really something that happened or was done that was below the standard of care so get a 2nd opinion if neces.

Blisters under: Toenails are quite common in sports participants. If you're able to drain it, apply a topical antibiotic and wrap it in a band aid, that's about the best you can do short term. You might want to check on the size of the soccer boots. If too small, they can be making things worse. Also, i hope the coach/trainer has them wearing running shoes for the pure running workouts.
