Yes: Breech is when the baby's head isn't pointing down to the cvx/vagina. Frank/footling meanthe baby's feet are either tucked up to its head/dangling down to the vagina.

4 month old baby born at 35w+3days. Should baby's born this early (5weeks) wait longer until they are introduced to solids?
Baby diet: Basically, in these days we do not recommend early introduction of solid food not even to full term infants because of food allergies. If the baby is growing well you may introduce the solid food around 6 mo of age unless otherwise advised by his pediatrician. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

However, the degree of severity varies A LOT - from minimal to very disabling. Best to discuss this with a neonatologist. The program at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia is the best I've seen.

My premature baby, born at 32 weeks and now 4 weeks old, has just come home from the nicu. We notice she stops breathing while burping.
Mgt/workup: Premature infants are developing their pattern of breathing, and it is not uncommon to have short pauses. If there is a pause longer than 15 seconds or any distress/color change, an apnea test can be useful in determining the cause. If there is a pattern during sleep, observe your daughter for pauses, and discuss with your PCP. Note any upper airway noise or movement of her arms/legs. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Baby 5 days old sleeping for 8 hours without feeding (1st time) born at 37 weeks, slow at nursing but was told to expect that, is this normal?
TERM INFANT: 37 to 42 weeks is term pregnancy. Newborns sleep 18-20 hours a day. Feeding is needed every 3 hours on an average, night time gap can be 4-6 hours max. So wake the baby by gentle movement/ rubbing the back and offer feeding. Too much sleepiness combined with refusal / poor sucking, poor muscle tone, pallor, moaning, hypothermia are signs of infection. If these happens, talk to the pediatrician. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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?
Ultrasound: First question, why US at 35 weeks? Have there been problems with pregnancy? This is not uncommon and not real risk for child at this point. 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

37 weeks pregnant 3rd baby. Baby has been persistently posterior. Doc also thinks baby will be 8.lbs+. Chances baby will turn? Scared of painful L&D!
For a baby born at 35weeks + 3days who is lifting head, smiling and seems to be reaching milestones on time, does "adjusted" age have to be used?
Not after a few...: Not after the first few months. That's because term babies reach their milestones at their own pace, different from one another, so a 35 1/2 week "mild preemie" will reach milestones around the same time that some of the term babies will reach those milestones. However, it's good to tell any new doctors that the baby was a 35 1/2 weeker (until the baby is walking and talking). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
