Can a 4 month old baby out grow a pacifier this early?

Can a 4 month old baby out grow a pacifier this early?

Absolutely!: Not every baby even uses a pacifier. Use of a pacifier is to give baby that extra comforting sucking time they want/need. Some babies get all the time they need just from feedings and/or nursing. Other babies utilize a pacifier for that comfort measure As baby matures, the need for extra sucking goes away. For some babies that is at just months of age, for other kids it can be toddler years! ...Read more

How many times does my  baby have to boo boo for it to be diaherra. She has had a liquid type boo boo 4 times today. No fever.

Usually three : Four loose or watery stools would meet criteria for diarrhea. It can have several causes most of which are benign.

13 month old daughter has started banging head on floor when frustrated. Should i be worried about autism? She plays peek a boo & gives kisses/interac

13 month old daughter has started banging head on floor when frustrated. Should i be worried about autism? She plays peek a boo & gives kisses/interac

I wouldn't: Head banging is one of the many amplifications of crying used to get your attention. It works well with some and self perpetuates.If you monitor the fit with peripheral vision and wait until it stops before looking directly at or interacting with the kid, it will often stop.This is common in preverbal toddlers. Reward the kid with more attention after they stop a fit than during to end this. ...Read more

Is a kegel exerciser a good gift for a friend who just had a baby?

Yes, but....: Perhaps giving the mom of a new baby the gift of your time might be even better. If you watch her child(ren) for just an hour or two, she can go for a walk, relax, shop. That often is enough so she could return refreshed to enjoy her baby. In addition, she might come back with renewed commitment to do kegels even without a device. ...Read more

Remote possibility: Herpes virus doesn't survive on outside objects like pacifier etc. fir very long. It must be in living cells to spread the infection, such as through intimate contacts etc. Keeping an eye on the baby for development of any herpes blister would be prudent nonetheless, although less likely in this scenario.
