Is it normal for my baby to be drinking bathwater?

Is it normal for my baby to be drinking bathwater?

Yes: Babies don't know the difference between bath water and drinking water. Since bath water is usually not that dirty, a baby taking a couple gulps of it shouldn't run into any problems (especially since it's his own germs in his bathwater). A toddler could be coordinated enough to drink a larger amount of bath water, in which case his parents would be better off giving him showers instead of baths. ...Read more

How can I get my hair to grow faster? I drink plenty of water, have taken biotin for a long period, and get regular trims. Mine grows maybe 1/8"mo.

How can I get my hair to grow faster? I drink plenty of water,  have taken biotin for a long period,  and get regular trims. Mine grows maybe 1/8"mo.

Biotin doesn't: Help. Water doesn't help. Trimming doesn't help. Hairs grow in spurts with each hair on a different schedule or growing for several months followed by remaining stable for months. The only way is to have good genetics and good nutrition and good overall health. Good luck. Nothing else helps. ...Read more

How important is it that a 12-mo-old gets milk? I want to wean, but he won't drink any other kind of milk (cow, goat, coconut, and almond).

Not mandatory: Milk is an easy vehicle to provide calcium, protein, fat, sugar and fluid.All can be provided through alternative sources. Cheeses and yogurt can provide adequate calcium, or two ground up Tums (calcium carbonate) antacid tabs. The rest of the diet can provide the rest. You may find this is just a battle over the breast, and a week or two after you stop the kid may take anything. ...Read more
