Not where we look: If I want to verify type or length of drug exposure in a newborn I check their first poop. The poop begins to form about 12 weeks into pregnancy and it remains metabolically inactive after it forms. It can provide data looking back several months, retaining trace amounts of the drugs. Some specialty labs do hair testing which can also yield data. Blood tests record more recent exposure. ...Read more

Otherwise, your baby should be fine. ...Read more
Healthy newborn wt 7lbs 12 oz was on IV for hypoglycemia. Mom was never a diabetic, but why does his glucose keep dropping? What is normal glucose?
Hypoglycemia: Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) in a newborn can be caused by many things, including undiagnosed high blood sugar in a mom at the end of pregnancy. Also, low blood sugar can be a sign of an infection in a newborn or not enough feedings by mouth. I am sure the neonatologists are taking care to figure out the cause. In most cases, the lability of the sugar calms down in a few days. ...Read more
Not likely to catch:
Breastfeeding an 8-week-old makes it less likely she'll catch the family cold.
In addition to immune factors and targeted antibodies in breast milk, young babies do still have some remaining protection from respiratory viruses transferred from their mothers before birth, making colds less likely.
The peak age for colds is 6 to 12 months old, when inherited immunity is fading. ...Read more

I'm a first time mom and my newborn is a week old and she bumped her head on her crib. She seems to be ok though she's sleeping a lot but I don't know?
Get evaluation: It is unlikely that a 1-week old could have caused a bump on her head on her own, a one-week old can't roll. This situation is concerning for some ptential physical abuse and looking at the fact that the mother is 18 y/o raises the risk. Please take this child to the doctor for an evaluation immediately, it may save a life ...Read more

How do I get my mom and sister to stop smoking? I have a newborn and my sister is pregnant. What can I do to help my baby and hers?
Get help from her dr: Most everyone knows how bad smoking is in general, for kids and during pregnancy. Most women are motivated enough by this to stop smoking at least while pregnant. If your sister has not been, then it is just a reflection of how strong her addiction is. She may have underlying psychological issues (anxiety, depression, feelings towards nw baby) that unless addresses, will not "allow her" to quit. ...Read more

Why not give newborn tdap vaccine asap instead of pregnant mom? How do you know it's safe for the unborn child?
Takes awhile: It takes awhile to build immunity. When infant gets vaccine the first 6 months are basically uncovered for infant. I've seen firsthand, babies suffering from whopping cough, it's heartbreaking. Especially when largely preventable. When in utero fetuses actually get some of the moms antibodies, the agent that takes months for baby to makeover her own when given after. It's 100% safe. ...Read more
Infrequent: If you have active tuberculosis it is possible to infect your fetus through the placenta but this is rare. If you have active TB you need to inform your OB and your baby can be evaluated and placed on medication to reduce acquisition of tb. Very rarely TB can be transmitted through breast milk. Have your infant tested when born. ...Read more
My mom is coming to visit she was exposed to measles about 2 weeks ago, will that pose a risk to my 14 day old new born?
Are you immune?: If you have antibodies to measles from vaccines or childhood infection, your baby will also have them and will not be at risk. Your mother may also be immune based on childhood infection or vaccination. The antivaccine movement has created a measles epidemic in the US and it has caused a lot of illness. Check your vaccine status and that of your mother. ...Read more
Will a new born baby get detached from mother if she is bottle-fed by many people from birth. Not only me, My mom and aunt is also feeding her.?
? detached ?: Newborns are very pragmatic. They will accept anyone who is nurturing in early life and become attached to all who provide dependable care. Attachment to a symptomatic degree appears more around 6 mo when a baby has decided "preference", or a pattern of separation anxiety when separated from preferred caretakers. This helps guarantee a baby can survive loss of mom in childbirth. You will do okay. ...Read more
