Boy 13 years old  still. Suck baby bottle is that. Normal?

No, ma'am: Individual psychotherapy with family participation is needed to determine what stresses him & why he is allowed to self-calm with a bottle. Assessment includes family history for psychiatric disorders, parent-child interactions since birth, child's iq, academic & social abilities, teacher reports & a dental exam. Therapists teach more age-appropriate coping skills before ditching the bottle. ...Read more

Yes: I believe there have been cases where women gave birth to very premature infants whose condition prevented early feeding but went on to sucessfully breast feed later.

I would consult with an obgyn specialist to see if they could help or knew someone that could. ...Read more

My 6 month old baby boy weights 20.4 pounds and he is 28 inches in height. Is my baby growing okay? Thanks doctors!!!

Big Boy!: Your doctor must be weighing and measuring your baby every time you go to for a check up. He is ~95 th percentile for weight and height. Which means he is growing very well and he is proportional as far as weight and height are concerned. If the parents are big and tall as well then this is the best growth for him. You should continue to visit his doctor and discuss his diet and his growth charts. ...Read more

May i feed my baby  1 month olds w??ith karihome goat's milk

Probably not : Although goats milk may be closer to human milk than cow's milk, there are several distinct dangers to babies. First are vitamin deficiencies, goats milk lacks both vitamin b12 and folate (folic acid). Babies develop a "megaloblastic anemia" from this deficiency. Second is a danger of infection, brucellosis, you should know, so definitely boil before use. ...Read more

How safe is baby boy circumcision?

How safe is baby boy circumcision?

Mostly very safe: Provided the surgeon, pediatrician, obstetrician or mohel is well trained and careful. I believe plastibell method, where the redundant foreskin is tied off over a small plastic ring is the safest because risk of bleeding is very slight.. Correct size plastibell ring must be selected and a frenular bleed should be cauterized.(check google.Com). Clamp method usually safe, but risk of bleed more. ...Read more

Need help for mom of boy newly diagnosed with allergies. Where do you find recipes without tree nuts, soy, wheat, corn, rice, tomato for family of 6?

You : You could very well still be pregnant. You need to see your doctor right away for serial blood tests every two to three days to determine if the pregnancy is progressing. Your doctor may even order an ultrasound in order to determine if you are pregnant and wether or not there is a heartbeat. Best of luck. ...Read more

Not identical: Identical twins mean they are exactly the same dna a girl and boy can't be identical they have to be the same sex the possibility of you having twins is much higher than the general population as twins run in both your families having non-identical twins means that the mother releases two ova at the same menstrual cycle identical twins come from one fertilized ovum hoping you have what you wish fo. ...Read more

My 15-months old grandchild (boy) could only utter mama or dada (daddy) or instantly would say clear words but not really speaking at all.  I am but w?

Speech issues: We divide speech acquisition into 2 large areas. 1)Receptive speech and 2)Expressive speech. Your grandson seems to be OK at receptive speech. Why, I'm not sure, but as long as you are talking and he evidences understanding, do not worry. Also, if he is also hearing Tagalong(?), it is well-known that kids who are learning more than 1 language at a time have delayed expressive language. ...Read more

A boy is 12 and 5'11.His mom is 5'7 and she has tall ppl in herfamily.His dad is 6'1 he has a short family.The boy has always beentall howtallwillhebe?

Depends on maturity: The potential for more height is directly linked to a persons maturity ( bone maturity, pubertal stage). A single x-ray of the left wrist & hand can identify the bone maturity of a kid & see if he has more growth potential. This kid is close to the height that would have been predicted based on parental stature of 6'. If his bone maturity is closer to 12, he could end up 6'5", if closer to 17, then 6'. ...Read more

Q for women and mothers, what is normal attachment of 7 year old boy for his mom?

Vairies: This is hard to answer in this space. You clearly have some concern and would be best served discussing this with your pediatrician.....In general boys are momma's boys and girls are daddy's girls. Boys should want mom to do much for them. He should be able to separate from you for school etc. Any concerns you have you should discuss with someone ...It may be very reassuring. ...Read more

Yes.: The relationship between nannies and their children can span the entire spectrum from indifference to pure love. It's a different type of relationship than the one that he has with his mom. In your role, it's always good to re-emphasize how much his mom is thinking about him, missing him, loving him, glad that he's having fun, and how she can't wait to see him soon. =). ...Read more

Closer to your Dad: How about your grandparents--and do you have older siblings? There's this thing called "regressing to the mean" that says you'll be closer to average than your folks. If you need to know an x-ray of your wrist will give you a "bone age" and let you know what to expect. ...Read more

I'm a 16year old boy I'm 5 '3 1/2. My dad is 5'8 mom is 5'3 or 5'2.    how tall should I be or how tall can I reach should I expect a growth spurt?

I'm a 16year old boy I'm 5 '3 1/2. My dad is 5'8 mom is 5'3 or 5'2.    how tall should I be or how tall can I reach should I expect a  growth spurt?

How tall should I be: 16 M concerned that he is not tall enough. Wants to know how tall he will be, AND if growth spurt will help. ANS: height is strongly determined by ur genes & how you feed them. Draw a family tree and ask every one how tall they were at your age and then at 20 and at what age did they get growth spurt? Finally your Dr has likely been keeping a growth chart so look at that with your dr & discuss. ...Read more

May be: If you are growing on your curve then yes. You are 25% on the curve which is great...Right on track based on your parents height.

Hard to say....: I know you think this is a simple question but it isn't! according to the growth curve, he's about the 95%ile for age, which predicts an adult height of about 6'4". According to the law of averages, he should be about 6'1/2". It really depends on lots of things: -pubertal stage -nutrition -health -hormonal disorders a better way to answer would be to see his pediatrician and find out more. ...Read more

No growth last year?: If no growth in the past year, then growth has finished. Otherwise, may grow a little. Most people reach their maximum height in their late teens. Without nutritional problems or chronic childhood illnesses, height is mainly based on genetics and parental heights. Aside from eating right, exercising, sleeping well and being happy, there's not much a person nor his doctor can do to increase height. ...Read more
