A bulge with crying: that flattens when relaxed, or is easily compressible with slight pressure is consistent with hernia.Common location would be in the midline, usually near the navel. Many toddlers still have weak abdominal muscles that may not quite join in the midline, so with straining, the entire midline tissue from breast bone to below the navel may bulge a little. This is diastasis recti and is not a hernia ...Read more
Yes you can: Sex of a baby is determined by the sperm. 50% of a man's sperm carry a y chromosome, which after fertilization will result in boy, and likewise 59% carry an x chromosome which will result in a girl.

Why was it tested?: To answer your question, we need to know why the test was ordered. Common reasons would be as part of testing for an acute illness or for a metabolic disorder. A common test would be for alanine aminotransferase, sometimes called a liver enzyme. "Slight" elevations are common during illnesses but should be rechecked. Another 'cause' for an elevation is the use of normal values for adults. ...Read more

I have a 9 month old baby girl. I accidentally bought children's acetametiphen instead of infant's. Do I need to go exchange it or is there a dosage appropriate for infants?
Fine to use : As long as the proper dosage per weight is given, it doesn't matter what preparation you use. The infant drop preparation is more concentrated & helps moms who struggle with kids to get the medicine down. Verify the concentration of the product you bought. Most have 160mg/5ml. The average 9m girl @ ~19lb would get 1/2 tsp every 6-8h. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My 1 week infant girl has got sticky eyes. What can be done and approximately how much milk should be given in regular intervals?
Blocked tear ducts: Sticky eyes are usually related to a blocked lacrimal duct (tear duct).

The formula/breastmilk should be 2-3 ounces every 3-4 hours. I hope this helps. :) ...Read more
How can you tell if your having a boy or a girl.By the way your carrying or it or by the way the other babies inter act with the fetus?
Neither.: It doesn't matter how you are carrying the baby, whether s/he kicks, whether a gold ring dangling from a chain goes back and forth or around in circles, or any other old wives tale. Each pregnancy you have exactly a 50:50 chance of getting one or the other gender. Sex can be determined by ultrasound or amniocentesis (some of the amniotic flood is take with a needle and tested). ...Read more
My friend has a normal 5 yr old baby girl....But other 2 pregnancies she had baby boys with brain tumors.The babies died right after. Whts reason?
Unusual: Brain tumors in general are relatively rare in the general population. For there to be two in one family is unusual. She should have some work-up by her neurologist and a geneticist to see if there is some genetic syndrome that puts her and her family at increased risk for brain tumors. ...Read more
My 2 week old infant girl has red swollen eye lid and redness under the eye w tiny acne looking bumps. I don't know what to do please help?
Sex Position & Baby: Unfortunately this question exposes an assumption that is not true. Gender is determined by what sperm fertilizes the egg in the female. Male sperm are known to 'swim faster' and in the race to impregnate the egg male sperm sometimes win that race. But, there are as many girls as there are boys so the race can be just a scientific fact. Position with sex will not change the way sperm move. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Best formula: I wish you decided to breastfeed your baby. The 2 most common formulas are either cow's milk based (cmb) or soy. Iron-fortified cmb formulas account for 80% formulas sold today. Dha and ara, which are fatty acids believed to promote development baby’s brain and eyes are also added. Whichever formula your baby agrees with is the best formula for him. Stick to one with the longest good history. ...Read more

My 9 month old baby girl is breastfed but not feeding well on solids. Any tips on best solid food that can be given to her and the quantity required?
Real foods: Some babies at this age are just not interested in purees; try very small pieces of soft, whole foods (banana, avocado, other fruits and veggies) to see if she's more interested in those. There's no quantity "required" at all - if the issue continues, consider having her checked for oral texture defensiveness by a speech/feeding specialist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My baby girl has a canker sore under her tongue that hasn't gone away for several weeks. What's the best way to treat it?
Primary repair: Young children will benefit from primary repair, which means high ligation and excision of the hernia sac.
