Is it normal for my newborn to be feeding all the time?

Is it normal for my newborn to be feeding all the time?

Yes: Newborns are wired to suckle 24/7 as a reflex. Try not to confuse the reflex with hunger. Hunger is a learned feeling, a desire to feel better if an emty stomach sends the message. If baby has just eaten, the stomach is not sending that message, but baby may accept a feed for comfort if offered. Breast fed stomachs can empty every 2 hours, formula taked longer. Newborns grow fast and eat often. ...Read more

Is it normal for a newborn baby to breathe at an irregualr rhythm and is it normal for their belly to move up and down drastically when they do?

Setting the system: After birth, babies system must decide how often and deep to breathe, with variation needed for changes in activity.This process produces noticeable irregularity in early breathing from fast and shallow to deep or not at all. Belly breathing is part of this transition.After the babies system sorts out the issue their breathing pattern becomes more consistent. It takes many weeks of trial and error ...Read more

Is it normal to be horny all the time?

Is it normal to be horny all the time?

No normal here: Unless accompanied by mania, it is impossible to call any level abnormal. I have seen men who claim to be literally constantly horny. I saw someone last week who can have sex up to 10 times a day. I saw one man who opted to divorce his wife because she wouldn't comply on an average of 14 times a day and he said that that was the average for his family, including all of his brothers and his father.He was not bipolar.This is likely one of those bell shaped curve issues and as such, no one is likely to come up with a hypersexuality disorder.Sexual addiction is perhaps a different issue.I hope my other colleagues on the site will chime in with their opinions as well. This would make for a very interesting discussion. ...Read more

Is it normal for a baby to move in your stomach at 3 months?

Is it normal for a baby to move in your stomach at 3 months?

Probably not: Most first time moms feel their baby moving around 20 weeks gestation. Women who have had children can sometimes feel the baby a couple weeks earlier. However, 3 months would be a bit early, and you might simply be feeling your intestines digesting food. I concur - assuming your dates are good 3 months (12 weeks) is early - probably something else and not the baby. ...Read more
