My baby is 4 months old & coos & laughs.my friends baby is 3 months and says Dada and mama. Is my baby not hitting his milestones?

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 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

My friend has a normal 5 yr old baby girl....But other 2 pregnancies she had baby boys with brain tumors.The babies died right after. Whts reason?

Unusual: Brain tumors in general are relatively rare in the general population. For there to be two in one family is unusual. She should have some work-up by her neurologist and a geneticist to see if there is some genetic syndrome that puts her and her family at increased risk for brain tumors. ...Read more

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?

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

10 Yr old neighbors little brother has hand foot and mouth for about a week. The 10 Yr old came over to play with my 1and 5 Yr old. Chance we get it?

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

My son weighed 6lbs 12 oz at birth he is now 3 yrs 4 months old and weighs 30lbs and is39 inches tall he seems small compared to other kids around him is he normal ?

Normal pattern: Those numbers place him at 25% for weight at birth & the same now. He is a bit taller than average for his age & that would give him a lean appearance. I would consider the numbers well within the normal range of growth. ...Read more
