What can I do for my baby to not become a cry baby?

What can I do for my baby to not become a cry baby?

Accept and nurture: Babies cry to get basic needs met early & later cry in tantrums & responding to negative events.Nurturing does not create a cry baby.The kid who stubs his toe will cry loud & briefly, settle & return to play. The parent who tells him to stop crying invalidates his decision that it hurt & degrades his self worth.Try to strike a balance accepting the valid cry & rejecting the self indulgent whining. ...Read more

Starting to get a cold, I'm exclusively breastfeeding my 1 month old baby what can I take for this cold and what
To do so my baby doesn't get sick?

Colds+breastfeeding: Avoid taking decongestants such as pseudoephedrine (the D component in combo antihistamine-decongestant) as that will decrease breast milk production. Antihistamines such as zyrtec, allegra or claritin are fine. Your body is creating antibodies against the cold which will be excreted into the breastmilk. Your baby may end up with a cold but no need to stop breastfeeding. ...Read more

What can I do to tell if my baby boy has svt?

What can I do to tell if my baby boy has svt?

Check the heart rate: The heart rate of a baby with SVT is much faster than a normal heart rate, often as high as 300 beats per minute. This rate is faster than you can count. Rather than trying to count the heart rate, i recommend feeling your baby's heart a few times a day to know what is typical. During SVT it is so much faster that most parents can easily tell the difference. ...Read more

How safe is it to have a baby if I have myasthenia gravis? I know people do it, but what are the risks? Both to me and the baby? Will I have to go off my meds? Will i pass the disease on to my baby? I’d really like to have a baby, but i’m worried. My doc

How safe is it to have a baby if I have myasthenia gravis? I know people do it, but what are the risks? Both to me and the baby?  Will I have to go off my meds? Will i pass the disease on to my baby? I’d really like to have a baby, but i’m worried. My doc

The : The more common kind of myasthenia gravis is an acquired condition: your body is tricked into making antibodies that attack its own acetylcholine receptors on the surface of your muscles, reducing the ability of your nerves to activate them, and leading to weakness. There is another, much rarer type of myasthenia gravis that is not acquired, but genetic. Women with acquired myasthenia gravis won't pass the disease itself on to their children, but since the myasthnia antibodies made by mom can cross the placenta into the circulation of the fetus, the fetus can be affected temporarily (mom's antibodies can stay in the baby up to several weeks after birth). This condition is called neonatal myasthenia gravis. Newborns with neonatal myasthenia can have temporary weakness of limb muscles, breathing muscles, and feeding muscles. They can also have a condition called arthrogryposis, stiff joints with limited range of flexibility because they didn't move as much in the womb as they might have otherwise. This is why it is important to have acquired myasthenia gravis well-controlled throughout pregnancy. There are many different kinds of medications used to control myasthenia. Some of them, particularly the immunosuppressants (like methotrexate, azathioprine, mycophenolate mofetic) are known to cause harm to the baby if taken during pregancy, while breastfeeding, or even prior to conception. Other treatments such as steroids and ivig are less risky (but not zero risk). Women with myasthenia who are considering pregnancy should work very closely with a team including a neurologist experienced in the treatment of myasthenia gravis, an obstetrician and a neonatologist. This is the best way to reduce worry, and risk, as much as possible. For general information about myasthenia gravis, visit the myasthenia gravis foundation of america website at www.Myasthenia.Org. ...Read more
