What are the long term effects on a child whose mother has angry outbursts and mood swings?

What are the long term effects on a child whose mother has angry outbursts and mood swings?

Could be many.: Our children model behavior of those who raise them, genetic or not. Anyone who's behavior is inconsistent around a child can impact their ability to learn how to handle similar situations as they grow up. All caregivers (parents and others) need to work hard to be consistent, balanced and appropriate around children. No one is perfect, but we have to work hard on our behavior in front of kids.

What are the effects of high blood sugar (200+) in a lactating mother, on her infant child? Does high blood sugar = sweeter milk?

What are the effects of high blood sugar (200+) in a lactating mother, on her infant child? Does high blood sugar = sweeter milk?

Haven't heard data: Haven't heard any data on that. Since milk production is a living process, it is reasonable to suspect that the lactose (a combination of glucose & galactose sugars) might increase if mom's blood glucose rises above a certain excessive level, and to suspect that glucose might "leak" into breastmilk if mom's glucose level is over some threshold level. Don't know if any researcher has milk this way. Read more

Make sure your OB and the baby's hospital doctor know about the hepatitis b so that they can treat the baby properly. Read more

The exception, which is a controversial topic, is drug allergies, but this is usually dependent on metabolism of the drug which is inherited rather than the allergy. Read more

When exactly does a mother know her child is mongolian. When intrauterine or after delivery?

Confusing question: If you are referring to a down syndrome child the terms referring to "mongolism" have not been used in more than 4 decades. It was an archaic scientific idea that it represented a primitive form of human. Mothers will only know for sure if their baby carries this defect after delivery, unless prenatal chromosome studies are done on fetal cells. Read more
