I'm 16 weeks pregnant with my second baby and my daughter stepped on my belly. Will my baby be okay?

Yes: Your baby is pretty well protected in an amniotic sac of fluid. Do avoid unusual trauma (and especially, wear your seat belt!!), but the weight of your child should not cause any damage. If you have any concern, see your OB doctor. ...Read more

I am breastfeeding my 1mnth old baby and i had a fever now.Wil my baby get fever too?

Should not: Its important to know why you have a fever. Some infections may be transmitted by breast milk but many times, breast milk contains the antibodies that moms are producing to kill the infecting agent and they are being transferred and to a point, protecting the baby. However keep in mind that If your one month old gets sick, regardless of having a fever, he needs to be seen urgently by a doctor. ...Read more

My seven month old baby cries when she moves her arm, her brother says he pull her hand what should I do?

My seven month old baby cries when she moves her arm, her brother says he pull her hand what should I do?

When to get checked: This is a time to get your baby checked. Okay to go see pediatrician or minor er and ask for an xray and tell them why. Babies have soft bones and laxity to their joints. It is easy for a baby and small children to have a joint dislocation and or fracture. Of course the child can only tell you by crying. Her brother will also feel better if you get the baby evaluated. Good luck. ...Read more

My 9month baby keeps on farting. What should I do?

My 9month baby keeps on farting. What should I do?

Let it pass: Infants fart because they either ingest excessive air with feedings & don't burp it out well, or their body makes excess gas. Gas production is related to bacterial action on undigested food coursing through the intestines. Neither issue is worth worrying about. Infants are not known for their social graces and i would relax & let the kid rip a few as needed. ...Read more

My boyfriend was putting his nose in my two weeks old baby's mouth. I stopped him immediately. Could he have harmed me baby?

My boyfriend was putting his nose in my two weeks old baby's mouth. I stopped him immediately. Could he have harmed me baby?

If he is your baby : Daddy, please have him attend parenting classes with you. Consider getting him to submit to drug testing. Mechanically, your baby did not have difficulty breathing. Infectious-disease wise, you'll have to wait about 3-14 days to see. Don't lick baby's pacifier before putting it in his mouth, because you can transfer bacteria that can cause his teeth to decay as they erupt. And no noses, either! ...Read more

My wife delivered a baby 4 month ago & now her wrist hurts when she move it a certain way. Her friend told her it's because her delivery. Is it normal?

Wrist pain: Wrist pain worsened with certain motions in a 4 month post partum female makes me think of a form of tendonitis called dequervains tenosynovitis. This leads to wrist pain at the base of the thumb. If so splints can help, nsaids can help , cortisone can help. ...Read more
