Why is the skin of my new born baby like yellow since i feed him, does that mean I have something wrong with my breast?

Why is the skin of my new born baby like yellow since i feed him, does that mean I have something wrong with my breast?

Work overload: Mother cleanses babies blood, removing waste until the cord is clamped. Newborns must convert blood that worked better in the womb to air breather blood ; this conversion creates waste products that can result in jaundice. Most are visibly yellow by day 4 clearing by a week or so. Contact your doc if this concerns you. ...Read more

I've noticed that after a few weeks of working out when i eat something it messes with my stomach and i end up with diarrhea before bed. Why?

I've noticed that after a few weeks of working out when i eat something it messes with my stomach and i end up with diarrhea before bed. Why?

Exercise induced: Exercise induced diarrhea is a known condition. The cause is not known for sure, or may be due to different factors in different people. One theory is that the simple up and down jostling of the body stirs the bowels. Blood flow to the intestines is diverted to your legs and that may cause the cramping and diarrhea. ...Read more

My 3yr old daughter is potty  trained but sometimes has accidents (poop)  when she does she plays in it and smires it into the carpet and all over her dressers  why does she do this and what can I do to stop her?

She is mostly....: ...But not completely potty trained. She, like many her age, gets busy. When she's having fun she doesn't like to stop what she's doing. Talk to her about it gently; let her know you don't like it, and that big girls don't do that. Then clean her up, change her clothes, and praise her a lot when she does it right. ...Read more

Is it safe to pick at 14wk old baby's cradle cap? When I do it, a lot of his hair comes out with it..

Is it safe to pick at 14wk old baby's cradle cap? When I do it, a lot of his hair comes out with it..

Probably hurts: Cradle cap itself can cause hair loss just by its presence. Soaking the scalp for 10 minutes with baby or coconut oil, then gently combing with fine tooth comb should gently remove the scales with less irritation. You may need to repeat this a couple of times, but slow removal is less irritating than pulling off dry plaques. Good luck ...Read more

My 2 month old is having some mucus when she breathes sounds really congested on her chest, and when she burps sometimes is wet and it comes out with some mucus as well. I am extremely concerned, last night I heard congestion on her back "lungs area"?

My 2 month old is having some mucus when she breathes sounds really congested on her chest, and when she burps sometimes is wet and it comes out with some mucus as well. I am extremely concerned, last night I heard congestion on her back "lungs area"?

Transmitted sounds: Often sounds heard in the chest are from the upper airway or nose area also known as transmitted sounds. Babies also breath through their noses not their mouths so if they are congested they may have trouble feeding. Nasal suction with a bulb syringe prior to feeding will help. Follow up with baby's doctor if baby is having difficulty feeding, you can hear wheezing. ...Read more

Sometimes when I brush my teeth, I have all these white gooey stuff in my mouth and I have to physically wipe it out. What's this & what does it mean?

Sometimes when I brush my teeth, I have all these white gooey stuff in my mouth and I have to physically wipe it out. What's this & what does it mean?

Hard to say: If this is noticed after you brush your teeth you could be intolerant to one of the chemicals in your toothpaste. Try using a natural fluoride toothpaste like Tom's. If it goes away, you've got it figured out. If not, see your dentist, an oral surgeon or an oral medicine specialist and ask them to observe what you're describing. ...Read more
