How Many Times Should My Newborn Go To The Bathroom
I have a month and a half old newborn. My boyfriend washes his hands for 10 to 12 seconds after using the bathroom and then holds my newborn. Is this timing good enough for washing hands?
Recommendations: Cdc wet your hands with clean, running water (warm or cold), turn off the tap, and apply soap. Lather your hands by rubbing them together with the soap. Be sure to lather the backs of your hands, between your fingers, and under your nails. Scrub your hands for at least 20 seconds. Need a timer? Hum the "happy birthday" song from beginning to end twice. Rinse your hands well under clean, running water. Dry your hands using a clean towel or air dry them. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
My newborn only eats 6 times a day but he eats a lot. He is breastfed by the way... And he is 2 weeks old?
Good for him!: Every baby is different, in terms of appetite and growth. As long as his doctor is happy with his growth and development, then what your baby's doing is working for him. My son nursed for 90 minutes each feeding and gained 1 lb. Per week for the first 8 weeks! so it sounds like your son is a very good breastfeeder-keep up the good work! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My newborn keeps being sick after a feed , mostly it is milk but it has been yellow a few times and he is slightly under weight.Is this normal ?
Yes: Would make sure he has been burped well and hold him upright for 30 minutes after his feed. Follow his voiding and stooling closely. If he is not peeing and pooing then you should have him checked at the doctor. If it is projectile(across the room) or pine green i would have him evaluated immediately. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If i shot heroin 3 times during my relapse stage up til 19 weeks pregnant, before i knew i was pregnant. Will my newborn test positive at birth. ?
Depends on what...: If they test urine, unlikely to test positive. However if they test meconium, cord or hair/nails, they could show positive results. It really is just better for ALL involved (you, your baby and your OB) if you just admit the use of the heroin now to your OB so they can appropriately watch the baby. That baby spent half of your pregnancy exposed, especially in first trimester, so OB NEEDS to know. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
