Can my 6 1/2 month old have yogurt? The gerber baby brand or any brand?

Not recommended: Yogurt is dairy and dairy can be allergenic in children less than one. Many children haven problems. In general I do not recommend any dairy until after one year. Some formulas are cow milk based as well...If you want to try yogurt just pay attention. If baby gets increased congestion, mucous, skin issues, diarrhea, eczema, ear infections after starting ..It is too much....Stop. ...Read more

No proof effective: Please realize you're asking american trained & practicing doctors whether a product sold in india (http://slim24pro.Com/) will work in middle east, much less be safe for breastfeeding. I cannot tell you about manufacturing rules outside of the states but here, the manufacturers are not required to prove safety or effectiveness & can make empty promises. Whether this applies outside of states... ...Read more

Parents are 5'5 and 5'4 1/2, adult daughter is 5'2. 16 year old youngest daughter is 5'2 1/2. period at 15 like other daughter. how tall will she be?

Parents are 5'5 and 5'4 1/2,  adult daughter is 5'2. 16 year old youngest daughter is 5'2 1/2. period at 15 like other daughter. how tall will she be?

Height: Most children have their height and weight measured several times in the first year or so and then at annual physical exams. That information should be documented on a height and weight program. Ask for a copy and then see how she fits with the family height. Very likely to be the same but one never knows without clear information. ...Read more

19years old, 5'6, 33in inseam, ~18inch spine, dad 5'11(same inseam as me), mom 5'2. What are the chances of me growing 3-5 inches?

19years old, 5'6, 33in inseam, ~18inch spine, dad 5'11(same inseam as me), mom 5'2. What are the chances of me growing 3-5 inches?

Almost nil: You are too old to grow more now. Your height is based on genetics and a lifetime of proper nutrition and exercise. Based on your mom and dad's height, you are right where you should be genetically. If you are lucky, you may grow less than an inch but no way at all you will grow 3-5 inches. That is impossible. ...Read more

Pediatrician forgot to tell me to give baby vitamin d supplements (exclusively breastfed). Now 6 weeks old. Health problem for baby?

No worries!: There has likely not been any harm done to your baby. Just go ahead and start the d-visol drops now at 1ml daily. I've had parents forget or refuse to give it and the babies are ok. Nonetheless, it is still preferred to supplement with a vitamin d drop to prevent rickets in infants. ...Read more
