My son has a low temperature?

My son has a low temperature?

How Old? How Low?: Keep in mind that 98.6 is simply an average temperature. A lower temp may be normal for him. A child who is very ill can have a low temperature which is ominous for a serious infection, but I am speaking of a listless child generally so sick he'd be in an ICU somewhere. Also, keep in mind that many thermometers measure temps " outside" of the body, so they will read lower than a rectal temp ...Read more

Should we have our son circumsized?

Maybe not: Babies are born complete, finished, and perfectly fine (except for the few unlucky ones with birth defects).

We have 4 daughters how can we have a son?

We have 4 daughters how can we have a son?

No way to know: The gender of a baby is determined by the father's chromosomes. The mother has xx type and the father has xy type. If the baby gets an x from mom and dad, it will be a girl. If the baby gets an x from mom and y from dad, it will be a boy. There is no easy way to insure this will happen except in vitro fertilization. It's mostly just the luck of the draw! ...Read more

My son have hight problem. He was. 16 year?

Genetically set: Most likely there is little you can do to affect his final height at this point. He's already 16 1/2, and most growth plates are closing if not closed already. Growth hormone deficiency cannot be corrected at this point. There is a possibility he's one of those whose skeletal system is a little immature, and he may grow in college. Especially if there is a family history of "late bloomers". ...Read more
