I used to read before bed. Now I play with ipad. Is that as good for relaxing?

Not really: The best way to relax and fall asleep is to stop what ever you are doing, specially electronics for a good 30 minutes before you want to fall asleep. Let the brain "computer" time to "shut down" if you will. ...Read more

Can sippy cups cause cavities in children? I've read that bottles can cause cavities in children, especially if they drink before bed, but i'd like to know if sippy cups can do the same thing. Is it better to avoid using them? .

.

It : It is not the bottle or the cup that causes the problem of tooth decay... It's the juice or milk or formula that the child is drinking. These foods have sugars that sit and ferment and feed the bacteria around the teeth all night long. The acids that are produced cause the cavities. That's why it is called baby bottle syndrome.... A mouth full of cavities due to falling asleep with a bottle. Feed your child, and brush or wipe his/her teeth well before they go to bed. If they still need a bottle/cup, i would suggest water only. I'm sure the other panelists will give you some great advice, too hope this info helps. ...Read more

My baby is 7 months now n still wont sleep thru the night she wakes for bottle even though i give her a jar n bottle before bed shes stubborn?

That is normal: Some babies sleep thru the night, and some don't. Yours seems to get hungry at night. But there may be other causes for waking up. Diaper wet, any rash on the butt? Any noise? Etc. Your baby may wake up at night for one of these reasons, not for hunger, but he may find comfort in sucking and fall asleep. You may need to look at the whole routine. But some baby does need more food than the others. ...Read more

(adult man) i took 30mg temazepam and .25mg of halicon before bed, i feel good all around, no side effects today. Do you think it's safe?

(adult man) i took 30mg temazepam and .25mg of halicon before bed, i feel good all around, no side effects today. 
Do you think it's safe?

No: Taking two closely related medicines (both benzodiazepines) for sleep each night is not a good idea. I don't know why any physician would prescribe both simultaneously. Especially, Halcion (triazolam) is very potent. I have seen confusion and certain types of amnesia in people who use it recurrently. ...Read more

My baby rolled off the bed. He cried for a minute but now is acting normal & laughing & playing. Should I take him to the er?

My baby rolled off the bed. He cried for a minute but now is acting normal & laughing & playing. Should I take him to the er?

Fall: A fall from a typical bed is only 2-3 feet. If the baby has no sign of injury (swelling, bruising) and is playing happily with all 4 extremities, you don't need to go to the er. You do want to watch him closely so that if something changes, you can get him checked. ...Read more

Is it good or bad to exercise before bed,especially doing pull-ups? It seems to me that it could wake you up or tire you out.

You are right: It does depend on the individual. In general, we teach patients to avoid exercise close to sleep as it often stimulates people's minds and makes it difficult sleep. But there are some people, who it does help relax to ease into sleep. You have to figure out, how your body responds. ...Read more
