Is it okay to eat pickled hot sausages during pregnancy? Do they possibly carry listeria? Should I cook them or trying avoid them all together?
OK but not greatest: I am a big believer that everyone should take a good quality multivitamin but, while better than some, you can do a lot better. It's good that it does not have synthetic dyes or high fructose corn syrup but it has synthetic E (which is toxic) and folic acid, which many can't utilize, and is low in potency.

As your child starts chewing solid food these mammelons will wear down and the edges will appear smooth. You will also see the same phenomena with the erupting permanent teeth. By the way you should think about scheduling you child's first dental appointment with a pediatric dentist once his front teeth come in. This will introduce them to the experience in a non-threatening way. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I am doubtful that whatever l-theanine is will compound any sedative effects you may experience with Diphenhydramine alone. ...Read more
