4 month old baby born at 35w+3days. Should baby's born this early (5weeks) wait longer until they are introduced to solids?
Baby diet: Basically, in these days we do not recommend early introduction of solid food not even to full term infants because of food allergies.

Y feed babies solids at 6 months if they are fine starting at 4? And used to feed at 4 for centuries
It's possible!: There is a wide variation of time before the 1st tooth presents. There are babies born with teeth. Also, in my practice, I have several 1- year olds with no teeth. The standard average time of the first tooth eruption is 6 months;however, many infants drool before then--not because of teeth but because of developing salivary glands. "teething" or fussiness can be from ear infections--so be wary. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Maybe: All developmental milestones for the first yr to yr and a half should be adjusted for babies prematurity. Your average term born will prop sit for several seconds at 6 months and get to sitting and be stable by 9.

Had 4 units of prbcs post delivery, breastfed, checked baby at 6 mo at creepy aids clinic. Should I have done that?

Had cerclage stitch at 20 weeks for 1cm cervix length, will i be able to carry baby until at least 30/32 weeks. ?
Yes, babies can be: born with teeth, and some infants do cut their first teeth by 3-4 months, although 6-9 months is more common. At 16 w, infants start bringing things to their mouths and like to mouth things as part of their normal development, and it is not necessarily a sign of teething. Before the lower incisors erupt, the surface of the lower jaw will flatten and if it is still narrow, teething is not imminent ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I delivered surrogate mo/di twins at 30 weeks due to 25% placental abruption. Are my chances higher at a p/a again with another pregnancy?
36 weeks pregnant 30 percent effacement and stationed at -2. Can this tell by when my delivery will happen.
My premature baby, born at 32 weeks and now 4 weeks old, has just come home from the nicu. We notice she stops breathing while burping.
Mgt/workup: Premature infants are developing their pattern of breathing, and it is not uncommon to have short pauses. If there is a pause longer than 15 seconds or any distress/color change, an apnea test can be useful in determining the cause. If there is a pattern during sleep, observe your daughter for pauses, and discuss with your PCP. Note any upper airway noise or movement of her arms/legs. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My friend used meth 1 time at 18 weeks pregnant, very small amount, will it show in babies meconium at birth, if she delivers at full term. in 22 week?
Meconium starts : forming between 12-16 weeks. The Chicago-based lab we used when I worked for the NV State Health Division claimed that their assay could detect illicit drugs in meconium used 6 months prior to delivery. A temporary decrease in oxygen from a "hit" of meth may cause permanent damage in some areas of the fetal brain. Encourage her to 'fess up, for her baby's sake & to get addiction counseling. ...Read more
