Does Using bug sprays right before pregnancy potentially harm sperm & egg and harm the fetus? Heard it may cause brain cancer to unborn baby. Thanks!

No

Brain_cancer
It is unlikely to remain in your system very long after exposure. Some bug sprays are considered unsafe in pregnancy, but the risks are low. What is more, certain insect-born illnesses are potentially more harmful, so you'll have to weigh your risks and benefits based on your location. I usually recommend deet-free bug sprays.

Can you tell me is fluid around the fetus brain at 28 weeks dangerous?

Brain

Brain
At 28 weeks it is early to say if this fluid is a concern, if the fluid continues to increase during the pregnancy then that is more of a concern and will need evaluation by a pediatric neurosurgeon

Can an abnormal head shape hurt my baby's brain?

See below

Head
It depends on what kind of abnormal head shape. If there is some mild flattening by lying on back, or in one position all the time, then there is probably no affect on the brain. If the abnormality is formed by the skull sutures fusing, so restricting the space inside the skull, then yes the brain can be hurt. Talk to your physician about which problem you are dealing with.

what kind of music is good for baby's brain development?

Classical

Open-uri20121203-10826-fzro9i
Classical music has a more complex musical structure. Babies as young as 3 mos. can pick out that structure & recognize classical music selections they have heard before. Researchers think the complexity of classical music is what primes the brain to solve spatial problems more quickly. Listening to classical music may have different effects on the brain than listening to other types of music.

Dr. Alan J. Levine answered:

What changes does having a fever have on a baby's or child's brain?

Usually none

Brain
Unless the fever is unusually high-around 106-107-for a prolonged period of time, the elevated temperature usually only causes brain injury to the worried parents. A frequent concern of parents is that of febrile seizures, which occur in about 5% of all infants and unless related to a serious underlying infection, such as meningitis, also do not cause permanent brain damage or developmental delays

When should pregnant women start omega-3 supplements for the baby's brain development, and when should they stop?

Omega 3

Pregnancy
Mom needs omega 3 also so the best time to start is before you get pregnant and keep taking them after the pregnancy.

Will zoloft while breast feeding alter the baby's brain chemistry? Will they become more reliant on this medication?

Zoloft

Cerebrum
Because of the low levels of sertraline in breastmilk, amounts ingested by the infant are small and is usually not detected in the serum of the infant, although the weakly active metabolite desmethylsertraline is often detectable in low levels in infant serum. Most authoritative reviewers consider sertraline one of the preferred antidepressants during breastfeeding.

Yes

If the skull bones fuse too early, a condition called craniosynostosis, this will not get better on its own, and often does require treatment: http://www.drgreene.com/qa/craniosynostosis

does the low oxygen saturation experienced on a commercial flight have a negative effect on a baby's developing brain?

Heaven forbid!

Oxygen
Can you imagine the class action lawsuit on that? And what about anyone else with chronic lung disease? No worries. The cabins are pressurized and oxygenated. If that is disrupted, that masks pop down. Air travel is much safer than the highways.
