Soundproofing.: The house, not the baby.

If you have a crying baby should you pick up the baby?

It depends.: If your baby isn't waking up during these episodes, they may be night terrors. If so, the best things to do are to ensure there is nothing in the crib to can get hurt on, and keep him/her on a consistent sleep schedule.

Which treatment works the best and fastest for crying baby?

None: Crying is not a disease, a lot of normal babies cry significant amount of time per day.

What are possible reasons that my hand hurts when I hear and see a crying baby?

Sounds evoke: Different emotions. Perhaps this evokes a memory of a physical state or just adds enough static to your your system that other seemingly unrelated items affect your hand. But a baby crying can be a powerful sound. And there are studies where sound provokes hand pain used in an experimental sense to measure sounds. Our cerebral wiring is complex.. Speak to a neurologist it these things continu. ...Read more

Does crying significantly affect blood sugar levels? My friend's son has type 1 diabetes. She has been trying to keep her son from crying because she is afraid that it will cause his sugar levels to significantly rise or drop. Because of this most of th

See below: When the body experiences stress there is a natural tendency to increase the sugar levels in the blood to get ready to "fight or flight". This is a normal response. Stopping a child from getting angry or sad is virtually impossible, but the effects should be self limiting. Blood sugar levels naturally rise and fall during these occasions. Your friend can discuss further with endocrinologist. ...Read more

Baby was crying excessively while nurse was trying to get blood. It took 10 minutes to get a vein. Can this stress alone cause a WBC of 25, 000?

No: Although as a parent, it is harrowing to see your child be in pain for any period of time, typically that short lived of a period of stress would not cause such an immediate, profound increase in one's WBC count. It sounds like you are plugged in appropriately with a healthcare provider that can investigate the cause with you, of which there are many possibilities. ...Read more

Do babies have a lower co2 level in blood?

What is normal?: I am assuming that you are referring to pco2 levels? These are usually done on capillary blood or arterial blood when a baby is having serious breathing problems. High pco2 levels are very worrisome and a sign of serious respiratory problems. Because crying can lower the pco2 level is can be lower in babies. Otherwise the normal values in kids are the same as adults. ...Read more

What level of blood sugar during gestational diabetes causes you to have big babies?

What level of blood sugar during gestational diabetes causes you to have big babies?

Pattern not number: Baby begins to make their own Insulin during mid pregnancy & any moment that moms levels are high will push glucose across the placenta, forcing baby to store the excess as fat. Any maternal levels above normal can lead to enlarged organs, defects, large baby & the need for IV fluid treatment after birth. The better mom's control, the less problems for baby, the worse control, the bigger the pbs. ...Read more

Anyone know what is a high level of blood sugar during gestational diabetes to have big babies?

Anyone know what is a high level of blood sugar during gestational diabetes to have big babies?

Over 140: A blood sugar of 140 will enable diagnosis of gestational diabetes. If you have been diagnosed, your baby is in danger of growing at a too large rate. This causes the baby's system to produce insulin at a higher rate, which fuels growth. There are multiple complications at risk. You can use exercise to bring blood sugar back to normal range. Be sure and follow your doctor's orders to a T. ...Read more

If bag for babies urine sample was contaminated can high level of white blood cell test be false? Also second bag for culture make test false neg?

No bags!!: If there is a significant concern for a urine infection in a baby, a bag specimen should never be used. It's akin to pooping on an area before a culture is collected instead of a nice sterile clean sight. The baby should be catheterized with a tiny feeding tube or small cath tube and a truly clean specimen obtained. So many false positives from dirty specimens and then unclear results. ...Read more

8 month old fell on his face on a laminate floor while learning to crawl. While crying a little blood tinted clear boogers came out of his nose. Worry?

Mechanism?: Worry is a wasted emotion. His chances of serious head injury depends on many things. What was the height from which he fell? Was he dropped from a four feet distance or was he cruising and tipped over? The difference here is critical, the former being more concerning than the latter? Does he seem to be in pain? Is he acting normally for that time of day? ...Read more

My daughter was crying really hard on sunday and now she has a broken blood vessel. Is there treatment?

I was cleaning my toddler's ear when she started crying and saying it hurts. That night when she's already sleeping I checked her ear and saw blood?

I was cleaning my toddler's ear when she started crying and saying it hurts. That night when she's already sleeping I checked her ear and saw blood?

Likely scraped wall: The ear wax is created in the outer half of the canal and will fall out if left alone. Whatever you can scoop out with your fingernail under direct vision is fine to move. Otherwise, leave the ear alone. Any swab or q-tip placed in the canal can & will scrape the wall & make it bleed occasionally. It will also push the wax in so far it will never pack the ear drum. A visit can confirm the injury. ...Read more

My daughter is 6mths old, I believe she is constipated. She was straining/crying and there was a tinge of blood on her stool. Emergency room?

Not Necessary: Get a half of pediatric glycerin suppository and insert it into her rectum (butt). This will coat the stool and help it to slide out. The blood if it is bright red, is from the straining. In the future add 1/2 jar of baby prunes to her diet and avoid rice cereal and bananas for the time being. Good Luck! ...Read more

My son's (age 2) penis-tip looks swollen, is painful, with a little blood on his diaper---what could this be? We use cloth diapers, except at night. However, I forgot to change his cloth diaper before bed last night and he woke up crying with a very soggy

What: What you are describing sounds like inflammation or possibly an infection of the urethral meatus or the opening of the urethra on the tip of the penis. This is usually mild and can be treated with an antibiotic ointment to the tip of the penis with each diaper change for a few days. Any over-the-counter antibiotic ointment will suffice. However, do not use an antibiotic ointment that says pain formula or has an additive to provide pain relief as this can irritate the genitalia in an infant. If you are concerned or if it does not improve I would have your child see his pediatrician. ...Read more
