Is there a difference in the brands of formula for babies (similac, parents choice) my baby has acid reflux and throws up on PC formula not any other?

Minor difference: Most milk-based infant formulas are essentially the same, although different companies will sometimes make very minor changes such as a different amount of calcium. There are some formulas which are designed to be easier to digest, and some babies with acid reflux have less spitting with these formulas. Powder vs ready-to-feed can make a difference, too. ...Read more

Will all babies with a parent that is a dwarf have achondroplasia?

Will all babies with a parent that is a dwarf have achondroplasia?

Not necessarily.: Achondroplasia may be inherited as an autosomal dominant trait, meaning that getting the gene from 1 parent causes the child to have the disorder. If 1 parent has achondroplasia, the infant has a 50% chance of inheriting the disorder. If both parents have the condition, chances increase to 75%. However, most cases appear as spontaneous mutation, meaning 2 parents w/o it may have a child with it. ...Read more

What are some common baby skincare mistakes parents make?

Overbathing!: One of the most common mistakes i see with babies is over bathing. Baby skin does better with an every other day bath. A luke-warm bath with unscented products is best. Too frequent a bath contributes to eczema, dry skin, and rashes in babies. Less is more. Use of commonly available scented products with dyes is the second most mistake i see in practice. ...Read more
