Is it normal for my baby to exhibit jealousy?

Is it normal for my baby to exhibit jealousy?

Yes: Sure, especially with your mommy and daddy. Babies own us...Or so they think. We are theirs, and they want us to give them our full attention. And, they don't want anyone coming between or interfering with that. Soothing reassurance will help, but it will take awhile for them to mature and understand that they can "share" you. ...Read more

My 8-month-old baby girl seems a bit cross-eyed, and some said it will be back to normal as she grows older, is that right?

Depends on the situa: What appears to be crossed eyes in some kids is just a broad nasal bridge which does grow out & loose its effect over time.A light that strikes the pupil at the same spot on both from a distance would show the eyes can line up normally.Yet any time eyes seem to drift apart or cross frequently, you should have your dr check it.Failure to do so could may impair the success of treatment if needed. ...Read more

If you want their attention, get at their eye level, gently square their shoulders to yours, and speak to them eye to eye. They may not like it, but they will learn that when you talk they should listen...At least until teenage years. ...Read more

What is the risk to fetus  who is six month old if pregnant mother is getting mad and fighting and shouting to husband. No physical fights but scream?
