Will frequent crying harm my baby who has colic?

Will frequent crying harm my baby who has colic?

No: No, your baby's frequent crying due to colic will not harm him/her. Colic is still one of those great mysteries that has no definitive treatment except time.

Food for g6pd babies?

Food for g6pd babies?

Breast or Formula: Breast milk is best, but commercial formulas are fine for babies with glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency.

How does a depressed mom impact her child's emotional development?

Severely.: The child's emotional development depends on a give-and-take with the primary caregiver: infants learn to replicate the caregiver's nonverbal mood cues, and caregiver's displays of pleasure reinforce behaviors of the infant that led to these positive reactions. A depressed parent is unable to provide these reinforcements. ...Read more

Kids with g6pd deficiency should avoid fava beans. Some kids - depending on their variant - should also avoid blueberries (& yogurts containing them), soy, other legumes, some chinese herbs, or tonic water (not great for babies anyway).

Possible neurological effects to baby breastfed during mother's stomach-cancer treatment? (chemo etc.?) obvious mental retardation only or subtle too?

Possible neurological effects to baby breastfed during mother's stomach-cancer treatment? (chemo etc.?) obvious mental retardation only or subtle too?

Difficult to answer: Many things make a difference here - what chemo is being used, how long exposure, etc. Remember, your baby is going through tons of development of every organ system and chemo will harm this. While i applaud your wanting to breast feed, i can't imagine risking your child's development, intelligence and risk for cancer in the future just to continue breast feeding. Effects could be devastating. ...Read more

2 y/o twins are very fussy, "fight" during feeding&sleeping, get angry when hears "no", my 8 m/o baby can be "spoiled" while playing/watching them?

No, educated!: Younger siblings have been shown to learn much of what they need from older sibs. Twin behaviors are often kind of exaggerated versions of singleton behaviors, and younger sibs have no problem understanding how they are different. Besides, keeping a younger sib away from olders would deprive them of more than half the fun!! ...Read more
