At what age can I put my baby on a park swing?

At what age can I put my baby on a park swing?

Caution: A baby is not capable of maintaing their position on a swing. That being said there are toddler swings that may be able to safetly place you child in with out them escaping. I would try one of the swings for size. Do not let go of the child until you are sure they cannot wiggle free. I would also suggest that if you feel they can fit in the swing, then just do very small pushes while watching.

Recognition: At 1 week of age a baby will turn towards the sound of a mothers voice, at 1 month he will smile at a face that is smiling at him, at 4 months a baby will get excited when his mom approaches, and by 1 year many babies will say 'ball' or 'dog' when they see one.

What is the appropriate age for babies to take cherifer drops?

What is the appropriate age for babies to take cherifer drops?

Never: This looks primarily to be a vitamin drop to me. Babies do need 400 IU of vitamin D daily. Other than this, your breastmilk and formula (assuming it is adequately DHA supplemented using optimal global DHA levels) contains all the vitamins and nutrients your baby needs to grow. If you are breastfeeding, then three times a week seafood is optimal for DHA secretion into milk.

Is it ok to put multiple babies in one crib to sleep?

Is it ok to put multiple babies in one crib to sleep?

Avoid co-bedding: Placing several babies in a single crib (aka co-bedding) increases the likelihood that none of them will get a good night's sleep. Co-bedding is also a major risk factor for sudden unexplained infant death (suid). So it is better, if possible, to provide a designated, segregated spot for each baby in order to guarantee uninterrupted sleep for the infant.

Variable: Some infants get teeth sooner than others, but on average teething occurs around 6-9 months of age...

Some infants may even develop a "low grade" temperature of 99-100 degrees. Referred pain to ears is also common.

What age do babies typically start eating baby for nuttional value not just tasting textures?

What age do babies typically start eating baby for nuttional value not just tasting textures?

Six month visit: Most babies develop the ability to swallow a serving of pureed baby food at around 5 months. The baby can begin solids at age 6 months. This is a good topic to discuss at the pediatrician's at the six month visit. Baby rice cereal is fortified with iron and is usually the first solid food to start. The baby is then introduced to a variety of vegetables and fruits, and then meat.

My wife just turned 32. Is she still at a good age for making babies? We've been trying for 2 years for baby #1.

My wife just turned 32. Is she still at a good age for making babies? We've been trying for 2 years for baby #1.

Short answer, Yes: There is always a small %-age of pregnancies at any age that will have problems, whether spontaneous miscarriage or birth defects but the incident is low. However, the risk does rise with maternal age. Around 35, your md may want to monitor & evaluate a pregnancy more closely, but even then & into the 40's, the majority of pregnancies are not problematic. Follow w/ your md your efforts to conceive.

Do babies age to weight/length percentiles project to their potential adult size... Or is it only applicable to their babyhood?

Do babies age to weight/length percentiles project to their potential adult size... Or is it only applicable to their babyhood?

Growth: Potential adult height depends mostly on family height. One rough calculation: mid parental height (+) 1 inch for boy and (-) 1 inch for girls. Infants and young children temporarily loose weight with slowness of growth when they have minor illnesses, and catches up soon after recovery. The child who has been always overfeed and big has seen to be overweight as adults.
