My 7 month old has slowed her growth since 5 months old. She is breastfed every 2 hours and eats one meal of solids daily. She meets all her milestone?

My 7 month old has slowed her growth since 5 months old. She is breastfed every 2 hours and eats one meal of solids daily. She meets all her milestone?

Depends: This really depends on where they were, where they are now, and what the family body type is. If they were the 70th % and you are at the 25th, it may just be normal correction. If she's falling off the curve or becoming uncharacteristically small, that might be more cause for concern. You'll need to discuss this more in depth with your pediatrician to figure it out. ...Read more

You baby is fine: Your baby is just fine. Your baby is doing exactly what is expected at that age. All babies develop at different rates, so I wouldn't worry at all. Most babies will say mama and Dada between 4-9 months. ...Read more

My baby born at 36 weeks and know he's 10 weeks old. He doesn't smile yet. Is that normal?

My baby born at 36 weeks and know he's 10 weeks old. He doesn't smile yet. Is that normal?

Should be soon: Infants born at 36 weeks and later are often only very slightly delayed (if at all) in their developmental milestones. Giving the benefit of doubt with a corrected age of 6 weeks, your baby should start to smile, laugh, follow gaze to midline and hold the head up at 45 degrees over the next 2-3 weeks. If not, see your pediatrician for assessment. ...Read more

4 month old baby born at 35w+3days. Should baby's born this early (5weeks) wait longer until they are introduced to solids?

Are contractions after sex normal at 36 weeks?

Are contractions after sex normal at 36 weeks?

Yes, but these are: usually Braxton-Hicks or false labor contractions. Unless you're about ready to go in to labor anyway, they are unlikely to trigger true labor. If your contractions are very strong, you might want to abstain from sex for another week when you'll be at term. Then, in the unlikely event that it does trigger true labor, you're baby should be fine. Best wishes to you! ...Read more

Delaying 12 month vaccinations? How late after the one year birthday can an infant's 12 month vaccinations be delayed?

Delaying 12 month vaccinations? How late after the one year birthday can an infant's 12 month vaccinations be delayed?

Why do So?: Better late than never. Delaying vaccines have been demonstrated to increase the risk of obtaining the disease while " waiting" in addition, studies have shown that when delayed, the vaccins are often never given at all. Unless there is a specific medical reason to wait, it only has a downside with no upside whatsoever. ...Read more

When will my premature baby start reaching developmental milestones on time?

Dr. Sue Hall Dr. Hall
2 doctors agreed:
When will my premature baby start reaching developmental milestones on time?

That depends...: It depends on how early your baby was. A premie's development is compared with others who are the same "corrected age" (chronologic age minus the number of weeks or months the baby was born early) until age two, when most will be "caught up" developmentally with their chronologic age-mates (babies born on the same date as they were). If a baby is only mildly preterm, he may catch up earlier. ...Read more

Many variables: Heads/Brains grow rapidly at this age but growth isn't the only variable when considering head circumference. The measurements could vary if it wasn't taken exactly the same way. When you follow up for the 2 month visit, your Pediatrician will plot another measurement on a growth curve and compare it to prior records. As long as your baby is feeding/acting/developing normally, I wouldn't worry. ...Read more
