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?

If she's falling off the curve or becoming uncharacteristically small, that might be more cause for concern.

Unusual: Brain tumors in general are relatively rare in the general population. For there to be two in one family is unusual.

Athetoid wrist movements with in six month child with odd color eyes (dark brown (l) and bright blue (r). Concern?
Thank you-- from birth to about six months, my granddaughter had writhing movements in her wrists. At times she also seemed to extend her to
Heterochromia : Heterochromia is the scientific name for someone with 2 different colored eyes. It can be genetic (like in your granddaughter's case) or acquired. There are a few syndromes or diseases associated with heterochromia such as sturge-weber, waardenburg's syndrome, or parry-romberg syndrome, but they have many other obvious physical abnormalities which it does not appear that your granddaughter has. Most people with heterochromia are completely healthy and normal. Some famous folks with it are actresses kate bosworth, mila kunis and jane seymour or actors keifer sutherland and christopher walken. I am not sure what to make of her abnormal movements, but it is very reassuring that she is progressing well developmentally. You should continue to keep an eye on her development, and discuss any concerns with her pediatrician. Good luck! ...Read more

I'm breastfeeding my son every two hours and he's two months old, when does his feeding time change?
Now if he is gaining: well. You can gradually increase the time between feedings by 10-15 minutes by soothing him with holding and soft vocalizing, even consider a pacifier. As he waits a bit longer he will take in more and be satisfied longer. At two months he should be able to advance to every 3-4 hours over the next few weeks . Remember, you need to rest. You can also pump and save up a feeding for once at night ...Read more

Missing information: Most 10-year-olds have antibodies to the most common viruses that cause HFMD, but he could have spread it if he didn't wash his hands well after changing his brother's diaper or helping him wipe his nose or bum before playing with your kids. If he, too, developed symptoms of HFMD 3-6 days after his visit, he could have shed the virus by sneezing or coughing. That's what you need to know. ...Read more
