Can babies have xrays after they are born without damage? Why are they so protective ofthe fetus?

Can babies have xrays after they are born without damage? Why are they so protective ofthe fetus?

Not just the fetus: The amount of radiation in simple xrays is small & unlikely to cause any issue, yet we are very sensitive to the complex changes in fetal development. The first 4-12 wks of fetal development marks the most vulnerable period to injury & after that point we worry less. Xray exposure also adds up over time & the eggs nearby in your ovaries don't need any we can avoid. After birth, babies ready for life. ...Read more

Is there any lifestyle choices I can do to make my fetus not turn out to be a fussy/irritable infant? He's very active at 27 weeks. Anything I can do to calm and ease him?

No: The only cause and effect evidenced by medical study that causes a fussy/irritable baby is the effect of drugs like cocaine, heroin and caffeine. Even a stressed out mom does not cause a stressed out baby since the physiological effects of maternal stress are transient.
The good news; active infants at 27 weeks gestation do not predict actual infant behaviou after birth. Good luck! Stay happy. ...Read more

Is nido fortified safe for unborn baby?

Breastfeeding is far and away the best source of nutrition for a baby. Any formula is far inferior. ...Read more

Why does my unborn baby move up 2 seconds after I get startled or frightened? Am I affecting the baby when I get scared?

Why does my unborn baby move up 2 seconds after I get startled or frightened? Am I affecting the baby when I get scared?

Physiologic response: When you get startled your body produces adrenalin & stress hormones like cortisol that affect your baby. While all moms have some stress when pregnant, studies show moms with severe stress have higher risk of premature birth, babies with low birth weight & kids with greater risk of hyperactivity & emotional problems. Taking steps to reduce stress is wise. See
