From : From your description, it is difficult to assess whether your child is developing appropriately. Many children do not sit until 6 months and do not crawl until 7 or 8 or sometimes even not at all (and that's ok). All children develop at different rates and as long as they are developing within the established range of normal, it's fine - that's what makes comparing 2 kids to each other an inaccurate way of assessing development. Your son may have been advanced and your daughter is normal. That being said, if you have concerns, it is important that you have a professional do a thorough developmental evaluation on her to make sure she is progressing appropriately. If there is a problem, the earlier she begins therapy, the better off she will be in the long run. Contact your child's doctor to discuss your concerns. They will either be able to assess her development themselves or send you to a specialist who can assess her. (many organizations who provide developmental therapy conduct their own exams). I hope this helps! ...Read more

It sounds like: Your girlfriend has a drug problem and is in denial. The sad thing is that regardless of how much you love her and want her to be healthy - she still has the free agency to harm herself with mdma. Encourage you to have her read this response. Some times reading something in black ; white has a different impact then hearing it from a significant other. What she is doing is destructive. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My daughter is 2 years old and doesn't want eat. I have tried everything but all she wants is a bottle. What can I do to get her to eat?
Re-examine the issue: My expectation for feeding at that age is 3-5 good feeding days a month & the rest nibbling or grazing.There interest also shifts to carbohydrates to sustain activity rather than protein to sustain growth. Feed at the table & be sure appetizing food is always available in a for they could sample. As long as the growth rate & activity level are normal, relax.Think balanced week not balanced meal. ...Read more
When me and my wife try to have a kid is there a shot she can take to make it a girl bec we don't won't a boy.if so is shot safe ?
My doctor says that i get stomachaches because of starving myself, which isn't true! he advised me to eat before going to bed! is that even possible?
Stomach pains: I will have to partially disagree. If u are starving yourself then your body reminds you to feed it by "growling" which may be painful. If your stomach hurts in the morning because u haven't eaten in 6-8 hours then that's normal and eating before going to bed may not necessarily change that. Eat a meal higher in protein than carbos 1-2 hours before bed and your stomach may improve. ...Read more
I went to the doctor today to see if my pelvis and ovaries is ok for me to get pregnant she said my body is ready to get pregnant why i'm not then?
Give it time : As long as your exam was normal, i would not worry about conceiving as this point in time. A woman doesn't necessarily get pregnant with every cycle even when everything is normal. It may take 3, 6 or even 12 months to conceive. The last thing you want to do is add anxiety to the equation. Try not to worry at this point and let nature take it's course. ...Read more
