No: Try to avoid a high salt diet though.

No: Medical literature want you to cut your salt out as much as possible. Ask your obstetrician gynecologist what he feels is necessary for you...

High salt: 50F asks; Will the baby have higher than normal blood pressure from my high salt diet? ANS: that depends if your baby has salt sensitive high blood pressure. Experiments in rats show that a high salt diet in the mother increases BP in the pups. But this may not apply to you. Difficult to measure BP in a newborn as well.

A member asked:

How many times per day should my baby poop?

It depends....: The frequency of bowel movements varies with age. In the first month, babies can have 4-7 stools per day, sometimes after every feed! at about one month, most infants will move their bowels about 1-4 times per day. By about 4 months, some breastfed babies will only need to have a bm once or twice a week! call your doctor if you are not sure.

Yes: Usually after the first few weeks the pattern of stooling can change from after every feed to every two or three days, sometimes even longer. If the baby is urinating, gaining weight and is comfortable this is not a problem.

A 25-year-old female asked:

My 1month old baby has gurgling sound when she breathes, its like she has phlegm, but she doesn't have cough or cold, its worst at night what could it be?

Can be normal: Babies often have a congested sound because they breathe through their nose and can't blow their noses. Your baby may also have some milk/formula in back of throat that she is not clearing or coughing like adults would. As long as your baby is not having labored breathing, and it is not interferring with her eating or sleeping, treat it as just a noise.

Whats it mean when a woman urinates blood and has sharp pains on the side above hips?

Many causes: The most common thing is a bladder infection but there are other causes like a kidney stone (should hurt) or something in the bladder like polyps or other growths. Some bladder conditions like interstitial cystitis can bleed. See a doctor for the right diagnosis as this could be something important. Always get sharp pain checked out as well. Thats our body telling us something is not right.
