28 weeks pregnant. I used to cry and brood sometime, when I feel down for some reason. Scientifically, Will this mentality affect my baby's health?

28 weeks pregnant. I used to cry and brood sometime, when I feel down for some reason. Scientifically,  Will this mentality affect my baby's health?

Probably not: I am glad you say you "used to" cry and brood and that you don't now. Being happy is better for you and the baby than not. Don't worry though. There is no definite evidence that crying and brooding will affect the baby unless it is combined with other unhealthy things, like alcohol, drugs, bad diet, etc. ...Read more

Everyone is right!: Your baby is too young to take medicines without a doctor directly involved. Take your baby to a doctor for Dx and Tx as soon as possible.

Can I give my baby over-the-counter medication for a cold?

Can I give my baby over-the-counter medication for a cold?

No: It's best to avoid OTC cold medicines as they may have bad side effects in young children. In addition, many of them do not seem to work well in young babies anyway so it's not worth taking any risks. Try saline nasal spray and a cool-mist humidifier instead. Upright positioning while sleeping may also be beneficial. Tlc and lots of fluids go a long way as well! ...Read more
