Exotropia is when the eyes look away from each other. It is persistent and usually occurs from childhood issues of eye position or refraction. In adults it may result from injury, tumors, vascular anomalies and diseases such as thyroid disease. It it occurs recently, an ...Read more
If a baby is born prematurely by 5 weeks, what do doctors look for to see if baby can breathe on its own or can maintain its own temperature?
Rather simple: The babies are observed and monitored for evidence of both breathing effectiveness and thermal stability. If a baby begins to work harder to breathe (visual cues) and the oxygen monitor shows a decline, the need for support is obvious.If the temperature probe taped to the body or rectal temps show instability, an external heat source is needed. ...Read more
Is it possible for a normal person to make themselves be cross eyed forever? Or just if you're born woth it?
Confusing question: Eye muscle balance issues can be present early or develop later. I am not aware that anyone can "make themselves cross-eyed". The brain points the 2 eyes at the same object by design, and gains depth perception. If one eye is damaged,weaker, or the eye muscles don't work right, the brain gets a distorted image and may turn one off. Once off, it may cross. ...Read more
Ask your OB-GYN if : (s)he has seen any success with the regimen of daily hormones & nipple stimulation required. I must admit i've not seen any success in 36 years of practice, though i've had some adoptive parents attempt it. Another option used by lactation specialists is a set-up in which a small tube attached to a bottle is taped to the breasts, ending beside the nipples, so mom experiences nursing. ...Read more
Not much: Percentiles compare us to others at the same age. If we are in the 80th height percentile, then we are taller than 80 out of 100 kids the same age. We grow at different levels sometimes though, and we can be 80th percentile one month and then 30th percentile 3 months later. As long as kids have a progressive gain, they are probably fine. Acute changes should be addressed by your doc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Comforting routine: Although babies may understand being tired, they don't understand the concept of sleep. They drift into sleep like adults in a boring lecture. Your tiredness routein should focus on settling baby down and excluding harsh distractions. A little light can help baby be aware of their comfort place; soft background noise from a fan or radio turned low. Put them down awake & don't change anythiing. ...Read more
No absolute rules: There are no absolute rules for this. Remember that your newborn just came from a very protected environment (the womb) so when you do start to take your baby out, keep contact and stimulation to a minimum, as they gradually learn to handle the changes in their environment. For the first couple of weeks, have family and friends come to see you and the baby, rather than going out to see them. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Generally safe: Occasional use of mild dilating eye drops, such as tropicamide for the purpose of ocular examination, should be safe for the baby during pregnancy. To limit the absorption into your circulation, close your eyes for a while after the drops are placed and wipe away any excess. Some people, especially when young, can have a full examination of the retina without dilation also. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Why do babies go to a separate place when being born for shots?Nd is not because the mother can't handle it when a few weeks u watch your baby get shots
No good reason: Your pediatrician may prefer to examine and treat the baby elsewhere. But, you are the mother! if you don't want the baby to leave you to get shots, you have every right to tell them that you want your baby to stay with you. Having surgery, or having to go to the intensive care unit is really the only reason your baby would need to leave your side. ...Read more
Suggestive symptoms: An allergy to formula (usually the milk or soy component) presents with characteristic symptoms. Usually these include rash/hives or worsening eczema, swelling of lips/tongue/eyelid/face, cough/wheezing, vomiting/diarrhea. Not all patients experience all of these symptoms. Fussiness or colic is usually not secondary to a formula allergy. Skin or blood allergy tests can help diagnose an allergy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Version vs. Cesarean: Breech is when the baby's head isn't pointing down to the cvx/vagina. Frank/footling meanthe baby's feet are either tucked up to its head/dangling down to the vagina. Many reasons why; sometimes baby's size, shape of uterus, rarely it's babies w/ a neuro disorder. >50% switch to cephalic at 32wks, and it even happens at 38wks. OBGYNs can perform a VERSION to flip baby at term, but DON'T TRY @ HOME ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Newborns : There are several tests that screen for problems, as well as your US can see some, as well. However, at this point, we can't determine everything. Ask your ObGyn about the testing. Keep taking care of yourself, following your doctors recommendations. That also helps. ...Read more
