Likely: If you stop now and abstain, most urine screening tests would be negative by the expected due date. If you are on a watch list through child protective services, the babies initial stool is usually studied and may contain residual material. Abstaining and avoiding passive exposure to others who are smoking is you best way to avoid issues. In my state, a positive stool separate you from baby. ...Read more

Is it true you aren't supposed to take babies out in public indoor places til they are two months?

Is it true you aren't supposed to take babies out in public indoor places til they are two months?

Not exactly...: Until a baby is 6-8 weeks old, they have not been immunized and they are at higher risk of serious complications if they are exposed to an illness. If they were to get a fever before this age then normal work up would include blood cultures, spinal tap, urine cultures, and hosp for at least 48 hours of IV antibiotics. The recommendation is to avoid areas with high risk exposure to illness... ...Read more

Will growing up in an overly hygienic/sterile environment hinder the development of an infant's immunity system?

Will growing up in an overly hygienic/sterile environment hinder the development of an infant's immunity system?

Hygiene Hypothesis: This hypothesis suggests that infants not exposed to microbes early on will not "shift" their immune system from th2 (allergy prone) to th1 (fight infections), thus increasing risk for asthma and allergic disorders. These infants will however have a fully functional immune system to fight infections as they grow. It will not suppress their immune function. ...Read more

Wanted to know if babies have a stronger immune system than adults?

Poor immunity: Infants, and newborns specifically, have relatively weak immune systems as compared to adults.

I'm 23 weeks pregnant I stop smoking 3days ago. How long does weed stay in your babies stool? Is there any way to clean the system faster

In baby's stool?: I've never heard of anyone measuring a baby's stool for marijuana! half-life of thc is 2-12 days;the more often you smoke the more accumulates & the longer it takes to eliminate. If you smoked regularly the half life might be 10 days-that means 17 weeks after stopping (at delivery) only 1/4000 of it will still be there-likely undetectable. Chlorella might slightly speed the detox process. See comment:. ...Read more

I managed to breastfeed my baby for 11 weeks, im worried her immune system is not strong. Do formula fed babies get ill more often? : (

In the 3rd world: Breastfeeding for 11 weeks is great providing your infant with adequate amounts of antibodies to line the intestine & combat viral infections that cause vomiting & diarrhea. While pregnant you transferred antibodies to your infant that will provide protection for the first 6 months of life. If your child is healthy & growing then there's nothing wrong with the immune system. Enjoy your new one. ...Read more

My longtime childhood friend is currently 26 weeks pregnant She has been using meth on and off her whole pregnancy! She wants to know if she stops now if it will show in the babies system when delivered?

If I look: If she stops, it is healthier for her & the baby may actually survive the pregnancy. If mom draws attention to herself by being a known user, having drugie friends visit or for other reasons the Child & Family Services people have her on their radar she will have trouble. I can find evidence of any drug exposure in baby back to about 20 wks. If she gets clean & stays clean they may not look. ...Read more

I'm 38 weeks pregnant. My dr. Is aware that I struggle with addiction. He said he will test the baby when he is born, how long does meth stay in my babies system? And if I'm clean, does the dr have the right to test the baby.

Yes: If you consumed any drugs after 20 wks gestation the doc is likely to find evidence in babies system. Both you and baby are subject the child protection laws of the state. The doc is required by that law to act on any suspicion of drug exposure to protect that baby's life as a new citizen. If you have remained clean, no problem, if not, you must deal with it. Baby can also show drug withdrawal. ...Read more
