Nursing Sucks Fingers Gags
After nursing, my 2.5 month old sucks his fingers and occasionally gags himself. Why could this be?
I am a nursing student and I need help with one part of my project. I need to know what hormones are active in maintaining homeostasis as a result of a severed finger?
If a guy cums then fingers a girl can she get pregnant even if she's not ovulating but is taking pre Natal's and nursing a baby ?
No egg = no baby: Regardless of what else is going on, a woman cannot get pregnant if she is not ovulating (no egg = no baby). The problem is, how does a woman know she is not ovulating? If she has her ovaries and is not post-menopausal, she may ovulate at some time... which means she has an egg at some time (egg = potential baby). If she ovulates at some time, she should use a form of birth control all the time. ...Read more
My baby would be nursing for a while and almost full, if she poops after, she wants to nurse all over again, is it normal to eat that much?
Hunger ??: You will find that a baby enjoys sucking due to the pleasure sensors in her lips. Anytime you place something close, or when able to get her fingers close, she will suck.This does not mean hunger.The rapidity of this pleasure sucking is different from sucking to feed.Feed her as she wakes, change her and give her a pacifier.You can turn her into a snack feeder that feeds every hour.Not a good life. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Altered blood flow: The blood flow in infants is designed to preserve energy when possible so baby will use it for growth.This often results in bluish lips, pale or bluish fingers if they are exposed to common household temperature.They pink up if placed in a warm setting.This should not be confused with low oxygen content you would expect in older kids or adults.Pink/red inner eyelid skin tells this better for baby. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Biting: If your baby bites while nursing, immediately put your finger in his/her mouth and remove him from your breast. Minimize distractions, try to remain calm, and allow her to start nursing again. If the biting continues, he/she may not be hungry. Try again later. If babies receive a consistent message that biting equals no more nursing, they will stop. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
One year old only weighs 17 pounds. She's active and loves nursing. She's sometimes interested in solid food, sometimes not. Should i be worried?
It depends: Your daughter's doctor is the best one to know if this growth rate is right for her. It depends on how she has been growing, how her height and weight correlate, and how healthy she is. If she is doing well, just keep offering foods (try giving breast milk only after she eats solids)- the amount she takes will change from day to day. Offer more finger foods- she may want to feed herself more now. ...Read more
My 7mo just got 2 bottom teeth and now bites me while nursing. How can I stop this behavior? Will I have to wene her?
Slow and Steady: Elderly often need a lot more time to complete a meal, so the old adage patience is a virtue never holds truer. Medications such as mitrazepine and megasterol can be considered with her doctor's approval. Matching diet consistencies with people's abilities such as lack of teeth, inability to chew are important considerations. Facility dieticians are often a great resource to tap into. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Today in my nursing lab class I was checking my Oxygen level and my level was 58 the first time and we checked it again it was 84. I don't have asthma?
Pulse ox: Unusually low pulse oximetry levels are usually due to equipment malfunction. These errors can be due to taking measurements with cold fingers, finger nail polish over the nail and sensor, or machine error. True oxygen levels in the ranges you have measured would be accompanied by significant impairment in function and awareness. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
