Vaginal Health And Baby Wipes
Baby wipes: I usually recommend using wash water and dry wipes for the first 6 weeks. After that period of time, it is safe to use baby wipes but I usually ask parents to use the non fragrance "sensitive" wipes. They are often less irritating.
Can sharing baby wipes between babies in a church nursery spread disease? What about diaper changing surfaces that may not be cleaned between kids?
I assume u mean vag: Deliveries, some people do fine, many women end up with vaginal and uterine prolapse when they are older requring surgery, rectocele and or cystocele, urine incontinence, the vagina will be more stertched out so could cause less sexual satisfaction, one thing you can be doing now are kagel exercises to try to tighten up teh vagina.
Leukorrhea: In newborn girls, it is very common to see a whitish vaginal discharge. It is temporary and the result of in utero exposure to mom's hormones.
Usually not a proble: Babies transit a birth canal that often has a variety of germs including candida.It is ingested as are other germs and will eventually become part of the germs that normally populate the intestines. Rare kids will have an extensive candida skin rash at birth but most do not. The sugar in frequent feedings increase chances of oral candida & diapers trap moisture & contribute to candida diaper rash.

I'm 5 weeks 6 days, we did a vaginal ultrasound today and the babies heart rate was 73. Is there any hope my baby will survive?
Ultrasound: Did they ask for you to have a repeat ultrasound in a week or two? The ultrasound that you describe above really was very early and would be best to have repeated.
Late 30s. Can I somehow avoid C-section for this and the 2 next pregnancies I'm hoping for? Really want to labor & have vaginal delivery for my babies
VBAC: If you've never had a c-section, then unless there is trouble during delivery then vaginal birth should be expected. If you've had a previous c-section then there is controversy about following deliveries and the safety of a vaginal birth. Many obs will default for repeat c-sections because the risk of uterine rupture and other serious complications are high in subsequent pregnancies.
Mother is obese52 lb weight gain, has GD, Pre-eclampsia, male infant, EFA at 35W4D, 8lbs. Fundal height 4 weeks ahead. C-section or vaginal??
Trial of labor: There is no right or wrong answer. A trial of labor with timely c/section if there is inadequate progress of cervical dilatation would be a reasonable approach.
Yes: Baby wipes are ok to use on newborns (hospitals use baby wipes). One should be sure to wipe gently to avoid abrading the skin. If a rash has developed, the parent should talk with the doctor to see if wipes should be stopped, and perhaps switch to tissue+water for cleaning.See 5 more doctor answers
Hard to know: "germs" are generally bacteria, which are everywhere and are, for the most part, normal and harmless. Depending upon what the wipes contain they may slightly reduce surface contamination, but there are always millions of organisms left behind. Some feel that children who are allowed to be exposed to these organisms build up better immune responses than those who are overprotected.
Baby wipes: No problem, but soap and water is a lot cheaper.
Need advice on what is the the difference between baby wipes and wetted tissues for wiping your bum?
Components: Propitiatory wipes often contain fragrance & preservatives that can irritate raw skin. Wet tissues will generally not. I often have moms make their own with baby oil, paper towels and a zip lock bag.
Two days ago I had rough sex (6 times)between 10pm and 7am. I've noticed now that when I wipe (wet baby wipes unscented)I have skin coming out. Normal?
Here's the "skinny": With such extensive rubbing of the labia during the "rough sex" the epithelial (skin) cells are abraded on the top layer and exfoliate. (come off). When that occurs the dermis (under layer of skin) try to rapidly replace the skin cells that have been removed (epithelialization). This is the normal process of skin replacement.See 1 more doctor answer
