Baby Eating Less And Sleeping More
Have been eating less to loose weight and pooping less often. does more food = more poop and less food = less poop?
Not necessarily: You could eat less food but increase you fiber intake by switching to high fiber foods and keep your bowel movements regular. Or you could take a fiber laxative like Metamucil. In either case drink enough water daily so that your urine is colorless. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

Is it normal for my 2 month old to be sleeping more and eating less (eating half the amount she used to and less frequently)?
How can I be more disciplined with my eating (ie. Less junk food and soda and more of the healthy stuff)?
Small changes: Make small changes and set short, manageable goals. For example, give up one junk food for 2 wks. Find some healthy substitutes. After 2 wks, you may have the less-healthy food again, but only for a special occasion. Give up another one, and keep doing this as you get used to less junk food in your diet. Also add a bit more exercise every 2 wks. ...Read more
Teeth that move?: Teeth are not like steel posts in concrete ; can move slightly but should return to their normal position. They should not move substantially while eating or during sleep. Over long periods of time, generally months to years they can drift if other teeth are missing, have severe periodontal disease or post ortho without a retainer.

Can drinking honey and warm water every morning be the reason for softer and slightly more frequent than usual bowel movements? As it makes more mucus
Warm water: Drinking warm water alone can stimulate peristalsis resulting in more active and softer bowel movements. If you secrete lots of mucus in your stool,then irritable bowel syndrome is suggested. If your current bowel pattern doesn't bother you,then I wouldn't worry about the softer and more active bowels. ...Read more

If I eat healthy and exercise and naturally (without dieting) gain less than the recommended 25-35lbs during pregnancy, is that really bad for baby?

Would eating very little make alcohol withdrawals happen more easily than if the person maintains a normal diet
Yes.: The american lack-of-style of eating is the unhealthiest in the world. A 'style' of eating involves enjoyment, creativity, savoring each bite, a form of relaxation and social intercourse. The french, the german-austrians, the italians, the spanish....They understand this, they live it, eating is part of the romance of life. Eating at night soon before sleep? Is america fat and unhappy? ...Read more
