Nipple bruise in man: It would be good to have a doctor look at the "bruised" area and do a general exam to assess your comment about general inflammation. There are some simple blood tests that can assess for inflammation in the body. Breast complaints in men are not as common, but should obviously be evaluated if they don't resolve within a reasonable time frame. Good luck. ...Read more

1 month old awake for 12 hours, won't sleep - warm bottle, swaddle, dark, quiet, car rides, lay on my chest, singing, rocking... I'm worried...

Sleep: Don't worry. If there was a problem, you baby would show other symptoms like crying, fever, vomit, rash, etc. If the only symptom is you baby is awake, there is nothing you can do.

If 24, go check her out. ...Read more

Normal sleep pattern: OK, if your baby had a serious problem, it would have more symptoms than being awake, like cry, fussiness, fever, etc. If the only issue you have is staying awake, your baby is likely just off schedule.
That said, but it to sleep around an hour earlier than typical to make up for its lack of sleep. If your baby does not sleep after 24 hours, go see your doc. ...Read more
