Whether 2nd hand: Smoke can impact on you or the baby is not my biggest worry for your safety. Crack is a ver serious drug and the baby's father's behavior ; use of drugs will impact on you if he does not stop using.

I have 2 day old infant (2nd child) and I have extremely sore cracked nipples.I pumped milk and right breast milk had blood clots. Help please. ?

Don't worry!: some bleeding from the nipples is normal and if the baby gets a little of your blood in the milk it is ok. If there is a lot, you could dump it if it makes you feel better. Use a gentle barrier ointment like lanolin on your nipples after nursing. Make sure to vary nursing positions and alternate starting breast. See a lactation consult if things don't improve in a few days. ...Read more

Second hand smoke: In a perfect world, there would be no tobacco exposure for anyone to be exposed to, especially young infants and children. I would try to insist on no direct exposure, meaning no smoking in the house or car, and wearing clothing free of the scent of cigarettes when holding a baby. Try to present facts in a calm fashion because it is so important for children to know their fathers! ...Read more

How long does maternal immunity to chicken pox last in breast feed babies? Afraid as my 7 month baby exposed to his father diagnosed varcilla. Pl help

How long does maternal immunity to chicken pox last in breast feed babies? Afraid as my 7 month baby exposed to his father diagnosed varcilla. Pl help

Several weeks: The maternal transmitted immunity only is protective for several weeks. A 7 month old child is not protected. If he has been exposed to his Dad he may get chickenpox. This would happen up to 3 weeks after the exposure. It is unlikely an early immunization would help. All the best and I hope he escapes the illness. ...Read more
