I delivared 2 babies through c sec in 2 years gap.both the c sections are done in same place(abdomen).why both will be done in same place?

Scar tissue can affect healing. Do ask your doctor for further clarification. I am just giving you a general answer and guide. Good luck and stay well. ...Read more

My 7 weeks daughter have very bad colic one of my friend told me about infant belly binder.I have never heard about this before. Is it good for bubs?
College Fund: Save the money for your college fund! There is no evidence to suggest that these things work to improve colicky behavior. Anecdotally, I have found success holding colicky babies with their tummies down and palm across the belly, putting gentle pressure on it, at a 45 degree angle. Rocking helps. Unfortunately, there is no substitute for the human touch to help colicky babies get through this. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I hah an operation for a hernia in my belly button almost two years ago. they used mesh. my question is can i still have more babies?
My babies umbilical cord fell off today(baby is 1 Week Old). Do I put anything on it to help it heal faster?? The belly button is also outie.
Not necessarily: The umbilical stump is made to fall off - after it does there is often very little needed to facilitate it completing its healing. You can use a small drop of liquid soap (not antibacterial) to aid in the remainder drying out - but if you do nothing it will likely be just fine! If it is not healed by the 2 week visit - your provider will take care of the rest. ...Read more

What is the condition called in which part of the stomach is small & all the food can't reach it therefore the infant projectile vomits half his bottl?
Small Tummies: The condition u are referring to is called Pyloric Stenosis. In pyloric stenosis, the pylorus muscles thicken, blocking food from entering the baby's small intestine. Pyloric stenosis can lead to forceful vomiting, dehydration and weight loss. Babies with this condition may seem to always be hungry. Pyloric stenosis can be fixed with surgery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Does initiation of teething can cause loose stomach in an infant? My 10 months old daughter has started teething and her stomach is loose these days?
Usually nothing.: Echogenic material in the fetal stomach is sometimes seen in prenatal ultrasound, but is usually of no clinical significance. This may be swallowed vernix caseosa, desquamed epithelial clumps, or metabolic products of subchorionic blood after a hemorrhagic episode. In the latter case, the fetal gastric debris is still not a problem in and of itself, rather a marker of a previously existing problem. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
