My now 4 month old baby was born 10 weeks premature. Only problem she has now is a small ASD. How old should she be before I take her in the pool?
Anytime, but: I would see a pool visit as okay now, but would suggest avoiding direct sunlight. The amount infants get traveling to and from destinations in a vehicle is enough to activate their vitamin D, and their skin is quite sensitive. Loose fitting clothing and shaded areas are their best protection. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hi my baby girl is 15 months old I noticed when she was 6 months old a adult like bio Oder in her underarms what could be the cause please help me?
My almost 6 month old did not do the typical 4 month sleep regression. Is that normal too or should I be worried about his development.
Myth?: The "4 month sleep regression" is described as a dramatic change is sleep schedule that is not a part of typical development and is not a "typical" phenomenon at all. I would not be worried about your child's development based on his having a stable sleep pattern. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Sitting, steps, mama: Your child's first birthday is an exciting time! at age one, most babies will get to a sitting position without assistance, pull self up to stand, and may even take a couple of steps without help. They are able to take objects in and out of containers, and can bang two cubes together. And they start developing expressive language, able to say "mama" and "papa" while trying to imitate words. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
At what age will my baby understand that im upset with how shes acting and try to discipline her? Shes 2 months now
Learned behaviors : Start @ 6 mos. Discipline = teaching, not punishment. It's effective only if done without emotion. Prevent problems by learning behavioral development on the aap's healthy kids app & reading ht answers on infant & toddler behavior. Practice (1) saying "no" calmly but firmly; lowering your voice, when removing a forbidden object or redirecting a 6-18 mo. Old & (2) ignoring protests that ensue. ...Read more
My son is 6 months old was born 35wks and I don't have him in my care so never told when I should start feeding him 2nd stage foods When should I?!
Food introduction: The general recommendation for food introduction in infants is rice cereal at 4 months, vegetables at 5 months, fruits and fruit juices at 6 months, finger foods & meats at 9 months.

Oatmeal bath: Usually the rash of roseola is not itchy - but if it seems to be - you can give her a soothing oatmeal bath - or just a slightly cooler than normal bath with 1/4 cup baking soda added to the water. If she seems really itchy and is scratching a lot, you probably need to take her back to the doctor to confirm that it is roseola and discuss medicines that are safe for her that will help the itch. ...Read more
How do I tell if my almost 4-month old daughter is teething early or just going through a fussy, chew-on-everything phase?
Swollen gums: To determine if your child is teething look inside her mouth on the lower front gums nearest the tongue. At this age these are the first teeth to come in.

This might be crazy, but I stopped breast feeding my son at 6 weeks, he is 4 mo. Old. Can I start again?
Unlikely: Production of milk is a feedback loop. You stopped when you child was 1 1/2 months old and now 2 1/2 months have gone by. The "factory" probably has shut down. By now your child has gotten comfortable with the terrific flow from a bottle and will be resistant to return even if that were possible. Carry on. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
