My friend is eating 800-1, 000 calories a day and breastfeeding a toddler. Is this dangerously low? What health problems could it cause?
Sad problem: I have seen babies hospitalized for just such maternal diets. Most would get by for a while, since the mom's body often extracts nutrients from her bones/muscles/etc to give baby at least a minimum. This kind of diet leads to bone loss and malnutrition for both eventually. I wouldn't think twice about calling child and family services (most keep reports confidential)To have a 3rd party investigate ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I am breastfeeding my son and I have fallen asleep with his head resting on my arms. I wake up with arm hurting. Am I doing long term damage to arms?
Unlikely: unless you have some sort of pre-existing nerve damage, it would be highly unlikely for a baby's head just resting against your arms to cause any permanent damage. Think of it as your leg falling asleep. Some sort of compression lead your nerve to tell you that something is wrong, so that means you should not leave your baby's head there for too long, but your body is giving you a sign. ...Read more
