Are there any long term risks in taking 6g fish oil @60%=4g of omega3?
What for?: Why do you feel the need to take so much fish oil? First of all, you are better off getting your fish oil directly from fish like wild alakan salmon or sardines. Second, high concentrations of fish oil can cause anti coagulation that can make you susceptible to bleeding. Good health will not come from a pill. ...Read more

Conditional, yes: If the Nuvaring are kept in the refrigerator then they tend to remain active in preventing pregnancy for up to one year. However, I would use supplemental barrier contraceptive such as a condom to be certain that there is no failure with the "expired" Nuvaring. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I'm 10w pregnant & I've allergy that keeps getting worse sneezing itching ears & throat congestion & the PA told me i can take allegra (fexofenadine) ! Is it safe?
No Allegra (fexofenadine): Claritin (loratadine) and Zyrtec (cetirizine) are pregnancy category B medications which means that animal reproduction studies have failed to demonstrate a risk to the fetus. I frequently use these medications with my pregnant patients. Allegra (fexofenadine) is category C so I would avoid this medication and stick with the ones listed above. If concerned, talk to OB/GYN about specific medications. ...Read more
Complete evaluation: The 9 month well visit is a complete evaluation of your child. It should include a check of your child's growth and development. There should be a discussion of what solid foods are being introduced. Immunizations should be reviewed and caught up. Your doctor should also tell you what development to expect over the next 3 months, until the 12 month visit. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Finger foods: Your nine month old may be interested in finger foods at this point. Foods that you eat are often more interesting than jar foods. Avoid chocolate and egg white until a year. Appetite will vary day to day as growth slows a little. Continue massaging the gums with a soft cloth or brush as teeth erupt. Don't let baby fall asleep with a bottle or tooth decay will soon follow. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Seldomly: A baby is seldom ill in the first few months of life. Much of mother's immunity transfers to the baby providing temporary protection that begins to wear off by three months. At this point, we begin to see fever, congestion, or diarrhea as a sign of babies new susceptibility to viruses. ...Read more

Agree: I would add 5) if your child is difficult to arouse (by this i mean hard to wake up, not lying on the couch like a lump because he doesn't feel well), and 6) if something specific hurts (like an ear or throat), or 7) he refuses to drink or hasn't passed urine in many hours. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My son is two months old hes super skinny but is the length of a nine month. Why isnt he gaining fat?
Length of 9 mo??: Babies squirm quite a bit. Unless an infantometer is used to measure the baby's length, there's a high rate of wrong measures. This is particularly true when the "pencil and paper" method is used - someone will pencil a line on the paper where the head is and where the feet are then measure the distance between the marks. Often growth curves look more like ekg's then growth charts like this. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
