Tantrums At Age 4
Likely gestational: Most of the time pregnancy is described in terms of gestational age. This is of historical relevance because prior to the invention of imaging technologies the most reliable mark of timing of pregnancy was the first day of the last menses.

Variable: Your genetics determines onset, duration and end of puberty. For males the range is usually 12-20 years old.

My son had a grade 4 bleed however he is meeting all milestones at 6 myths old 4 adjusted is grade 4 the sane as pvl he was not diagnosed w/ pvl?
Confusing question: Meeting early milestones is good .To do so after a g4 bleed is hopeful, but too early think the worst is over.Staging of a bleed and the DX of pvl depend on the type and quality of study. G4 bleeds are worrisome. Kids are well past a year before we have an idea about speech and language development ; school age before learning skills are evident.These kids do their best with early intervention. ...Read more

I would focus on good sleep and avoid taking your pulse at night. ...Read more

The best answer is n: It's best if an infant never lies down holding a bottle. Formula & juices sit around the teeth & these are toddlers & preschoolers w/ rotted brown nubs or silver caps for front teeth. Some studies showed more ear infections.
