Shell issues/ tech: The plastic shell of seats begins to age when made. They often sit in the car with temperature range from < freezing to >120.This stress turns the plastic brittle, in a crash the straps rip through the weakened shell and baby can be ejected from the vehicle. Improved technology also places older seats in a lower quality category, not a good thought for a precious rider. ...Read more

What harm can you cause the baby if you take hot baths or showers during pregnancy?

What harm can you cause the baby if you take hot baths or showers during pregnancy?

No harm: A baby inside a pregnant woman stays at normal temperature regardless of the shower or bath temperature (unless the woman intentionally uses abnormally hot water). However, if the woman stayed in a hot-tub or a sauna too long and raised her internal temperature above normal, there would be temporary stress on the baby until the mother's internal temperature dropped back down to normal. ...Read more

I am 21 weeks pregnant I have been taking rennie tablets that expired 4 months ago. Are me or the baby in any harm. Thanks x

Don't worry, but...: Most expiration dates are rather arbitrary. Rennie is mostly calcium & magnesium & those should not ever go bad so no concern about them being expired. My only concern is that rennie has corn starch, much of which comes genetically modified corn. I feel it is wise to avoid gmo foods during pregnancy as much as possible as these have never been proven safe! See http://www. Nongmoshoppingguide. Com/. ...Read more

I took 2 Tums an hour ago and need further relief. All I have is Pepcid (famotidine) AC that expired 2 years ago. Am I doing more harm than good if I take it?

I took 2 Tums an hour ago and need further relief. All I have is Pepcid (famotidine) AC that expired 2 years ago. Am I doing more harm than good if I take it?

Abdominal pain: Do NOT take expired medications, 2 years is very old, may be more harm then good. If abdominal pain milk has calcium, a neutralizer. Calcium is the main ingredient in tums (if lactose intolerant this won't work).Can also try baking soda-1/2 teaspoon in a cup warm water but only take 2-3 times a day for 1 day. In the morning you can get new pepcid (famotidine) in a pharmacy. F/U today with doc/urgent care ...Read more

My skim milk expired on jul 13 & I have been drinking till jul 22. I didn't notice any bad taste. I am 20 weeks pregnant. Will it harm my unborn baby?

My skim milk expired on jul 13 & I have been drinking till jul 22. I didn't notice any bad taste. I am 20 weeks pregnant. Will it harm my unborn baby?

Should be fine: Pasteurized and also refrigerated, the milk should be fine the week after the stamped date, as long as it tastes normal. Americans throw away too much edible food just because the stamped date has passed, so it is better to judge the food on a case by case basis. Sometimes, an item may be bad (like moldy bread or soured milk) before the stamped date, and other times still just fine after the date. ...Read more

2 mins and soft: Brushing too aggressively and/or using a hard bristle brush can cause the gums to receed, which can lead to a litany of problems. Using a soft bristle brush with light pressure for 2 mins is what's recommended. Remember to angle the bristles so that they contact where the gums and teeth meet and to use small circular motions. ...Read more
