Poor weight gain: To answer your question more reasonably, it is important to know what percentile baby's length is. If it's also in the 25%, it may not be as worrisome.

With a child on continuous o2, how far is a safe distance from gas stovetop? (o2 to trach via hme)

10-15 feet?: There is not a standard rule regarding home oxygen use. Some resources state that 5 feet is the closest one should get to a spark or flame. There are reports that fires have occurred with the oxygen 10 feet away from the flame, so keeping 10-15 feet away sounds like a safe distance. If the tank or valve springs a leak of pressurized oxygen, anything can happen, such as a huge explosion. ...Read more

I'm curious as to which is the world best toothpaste ?

No SLS: Many toothpastes contain sodium lauryl sulfate, or sls. This ingredient is also found in personal care products, including soap, shampoo and mouthwash.

.

Not yet: There are no studies that show tooth damage from whitening other than sensitivity. We use hydrogen peroxide compounds to whiten your teeth. Hp is a very volitile compound that quickly breaks down to water and an oxygen free radical. It is this oxygen free radical does causes the whitening, just like oxyclean removes stains from clothes. Do not use oxyclean on your teeth. It's poisonous if ingested. ...Read more

I'm a 16 year old girl, and I'm the height of an 11 year old, are the doors of me being able to get taller completely shut? i absolutely hate this.

I'm a 16 year old girl, and I'm the height of an 11 year old, are the doors of me being able to get taller completely shut? i absolutely hate this.

Hard to say: At 16, if you have had your first period and not grown in a year you are likely finished. You could have an x-ray done of your wrist/hand which could be evaluated for growth centers in those bones.If the growth centers appear open you could grow more. Some who transition through puberty slowly will actually grow more after their friends have stopped. ...Read more
