Why does my baby resist her crib during naptime?

Why does my baby resist her crib during naptime?

Crib and Nap: You are probably responding to her cries too quickly. It is a learned response for the baby. She cries and you run in. The more she cries, the more you run in. I say, put her down and let her cry for a while. Let her see that she does not always get what she wants with the crying. Otherwise she is simply training you instead of the other way around. ...Read more

35 weeks pregnant.U/S shows cord around baby's neck.OBGYN said baby is fine and doesn't seem too concerned.Could cord strangle the baby before birth?

Not much room in there at this point to move around. At delivery very common to find cord around neck. Usually very easy to deal with. I would not worry. Hope this helps. Good luck with rest of pregnancy (the hard part now at this phase) and the deliver ...Read more

My 40 yr old wife is pregnant w #2 (7mos) & developing severe vericose veins. Her obgyn isnt concerned but shes afraid they wont go away after babys born?

My 40 yr old wife is pregnant w #2 (7mos) & developing severe vericose veins. Her obgyn isnt concerned but shes afraid they wont go away after babys born?

Right to be worried: Pregnancy is the #2 cause of varicose veins, and the effects tend to be cumulative with each gestation. Although the veins may decompress and seem to disappear with delivery, the underlying damage to the veins remains, and will likely progress in the future. She needs compression stockings now, and definitive treatment post-delivery. If severe, she can be treated now, as it's done via local anesth. ...Read more

Touching poop while changing diapers. Couldn't this give him e.Coli infection?

Touching poop while changing diapers.  Couldn't this give him e.Coli infection?

Not likely.: If it is touched while changing, it is likely his e. Coli, so he won't likely get infected, but you should wash your hands so you don't get sick, and keep him/her/baby clean there, so bacteria doesn't build up, or infection can result from too much/ too many kinds of bacteria. So wash the baby thoroughly when changing, and wash your hands before and after changing to be sure. ...Read more

When should babies start to crawl if trisomy 21?

When should babies start to crawl if trisomy 21?

They may never: Crawling ends up the least important milestone for a baby. An infant with chromosomal defect usually has low muscle tone and will be delayed in sitting and walking. Most tend to scoot on their bottoms and then learn to pull up to stand and then walk along furniture. They usually do not bother to crawl. Crawling is not necessary. They will progress their way - with appropriate help. ...Read more
