Which is the best formula milk brand for babies. I have a one year two months old son.?

Best formula: The best "formula" for babies is nothing than your own breast milk. I hope you breastfed your baby. Breast milk or formula is recommended for babies until a year old. Since your baby is now 14 months old, you can switch him to regular whole milk or evaporated milk. ...Read more

My one year old graanson stil clenches his fists like an infant. Should I be concerned?

Constant or sometime: If the kid can open the hands at will to touch items with a single finger & explore objects I would worry less. If the hand is held tightly clenched all the time you should have him evaluated. That would suggest neurologic injury. ...Read more

There is no information about babies under one year old with swine flu and I am very worried.?

Varies: Infants under a year of age have no immunity to swine flu. They can be vaccinated and the vaccine works about 50-60 percent of the time after 2 doses. Most do well with illness eventually. They can get very ill, need hospitalization or even die from swine flu. They are in the high risk group for complications and would benefit from treatment with the anti-flu medicine tamiflu (oseltamivir). ...Read more

Delaying 12 month vaccinations? How late after the one year birthday can an infant's 12 month vaccinations be delayed?

Delaying 12 month vaccinations? How late after the one year birthday can an infant's 12 month vaccinations be delayed?

Why do So?: Better late than never. Delaying vaccines have been demonstrated to increase the risk of obtaining the disease while " waiting" in addition, studies have shown that when delayed, the vaccins are often never given at all. Unless there is a specific medical reason to wait, it only has a downside with no upside whatsoever. ...Read more

I was diagnosis with a pituitary adenoma but haven't had a period in 2 years. Can I still have babies one day?

I was diagnosis with a pituitary adenoma but haven't had a period in 2 years. Can I still have babies one day?

Depends: Hi. Not enough info. Is the pituitary adenoma making any hormone in excess (such as prolactin)? Is the adenoma disrupting normal pituitary function by mass effect? You profile says your age is 49, so your periods stopped at 47. That wouldn't be considered premature menopause even if your adenoma has NO effect on your periods. Having a baby in your 50's is unwise for many, many good reasons. ...Read more

Don't Give Up!: You should get the advice of 2 specialists: a fertility specialist to check if you have any antibodies, coagulation disorders, hormone problems, fibroids, etc that are complicating your pregnancies. Just in case, you should consider consulting with a geneticist (it would really help if the miscarriages were genetically tested). ...Read more

Can. Ptsd be a lifelong consequence of rape and bullying in infant school? An how should it be treated in later years, i.E. Ones sixties? Thank you.

Yes it can: Some people are able to suppress their symptoms and suffering for many years before coming to treatment. I have treated people in their 60's whose histories of abuse, bullying, rape, etc occurred much earlier in their lives. Psychotherapies such as cognitive processing, emdr, and somatic experiencing can be very effective, along with medications as needed. Homeopathy can also be very helpful. ...Read more

Prenatals have 1mg folic acid. Flour and pasta I eat has added folic acid - can too much be harmful to baby? Link to autism?

NO: There is no harm to taking a prenatal with folic on top of eating foods that are fortified. It is a water soluble vitamin and you will excrete excess which can make your urine bright yellow depending on level of b vitamins you consume. Having adequate Folic Acid levels on board prior to conception offers protection against neural tube and some cardiac defects. High levels do not cause autism. ...Read more

I gave my 7mnth daughter yogurt, but some ppl told me it's harmful for babies less than 1 year. Is it true? Can I give her yogurt-fruit puree?

Not harmful: They may have misunderstood the pediatricians recommendation to feed babies either breastmilk or formula for at least a year, and not start whole milk until after a year. An occasional yogurt does not hurt, just don't count on it as a main source of milk protein. Check these articles out:http://www. Healthychildren.
