What do you recommend if I gave birth to my son 4 days back. but I am not able to feed him nurse are saying milk is generated even my son is sucking?

What do you recommend if I gave birth to my son 4 days back. but I am not able to feed him nurse are saying milk is generated even my son is sucking?

What to look for: Breast feeding is best, but it's not always easy. It's not easy to assess how much breast milk your son is getting unless you're pumping & bottle feeding. If he's having at least 4 wet diapers/day, not jaundiced (yellow-orange) & isn't losing too much weight (>10% of birth wt), then he's getting enough. See your Pediatrician tmrw for a wt chk & exam. Consider a lactation consult. ...Read more

Why doesn't my doctor want me to have this baby with trisomy 18 if I have bad heart?

Why doesn't my doctor want me to have this baby with trisomy 18 if I have bad heart?

Simple for some: Review your data. Pregnancy has increased risk to your life. This pregnancy will produce a baby with no chance of long term survival. The pragmatist would argue that you should not risk your life/health for this outcome. The ethicist would ask u to factor in your religious/spiritual views & decide. Your OB is driven to keep you alive to try another day if you decide to. ...Read more

I think my son is having night terrors hes 2 yrs. Is there anything a doctor or i could do to stop/prevent them ? How should I comfort him during them

I think my son is having night terrors hes 2 yrs. Is there anything a doctor or i could do to stop/prevent them ? How should I comfort him during them

Awaken before..: If his night terrors occur at a predictable time after he falls asleep, it can sometimes help to disturb his sleep about a half hour before their onset. If they usually occur 2 hours after he falls asleep, at 1 1/2 hours go in and rearrange him in bed, sit him up for a drink, gently rub back and change his sleep cycle. This can reduce night terrors by as much as 80% in some toddlers. Worth a try! ...Read more

I am 49 years old and my wife is 35 year's old what can we.Do to have a baby is it to late or do we need counseling?

Not to late: Congratulations on the decision to have a baby! when you ask about counseling do you mean genetic counseling? It is recommended for women giving birth over the age of 35. Tell your obgyn, it's usually no big deal. If you mean psychological counseling, it's a great time. Trying to conceive can be hard on a relationship. Other than that, lots of sex. Have fun and good luck! ...Read more
