Whats The Normal Bilirubin For 5 Days Old New Baby
Bilirubin is the potentially toxic product of heme metabolism. It is formed by breakdown of heme present in hemoglobin, myoglobin, cytochromes, catalase, peroxidase and tryptophan pyrrolase. Eighty percent of the daily bilirubin production comes from hemoglobin. It requires conversion to a water-soluble form before elimination from the body by ...Read more
My 7 wk old baby just started having yellowish, seedy poop. She has had 5 a day for the last 3 days. Is this normal or a concern in formula fed babies?
Perfectly normal: Stools vary in consistency and frequency in this age group! ...Read more
See Pedodontist: If she were older, this would be quite normal. At the age of four, it's not typical at all. While it could be at the extremes of normal eruption range, i think it warrants you taking her to a pedodontist to have it checked out. It is always better to be safe than sorry. She might have had a traumatic blow to her teeth (whether or not you remember or were aware of it) and this might be the cause. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
What is the correct dose of Fapanil 250 for 1 year 7 month old baby having fever. We gave 5ml of fapanil 250 every 4.5 hours. Is it ok.
Need weight: I need to know the weight of your baby and not the age to calculate the correct dose of the medication. 250mg seems like a bit high of a dose for a 19month old toddler. Please resubmit question with a weight attached next time. Also, fever does not absolutely need to be "treated" - if child is happy and taking fluids well, just let fever be - it helps fight off infections. ...Read more
What is the normal weight for a 6 month old baby, my baby weighs 6.1 pounds at birth and she now 17lbs now is this normal.
Hi, My baby is now 1 year old and poops after every meal/drink (almost 5 times a day) the consistency of the poo is normal. Is it normal?
Can be: There is a basic process called the gastrocolic reflex.It is a wave of stimulation that sends a "move on" message to our gut after we take a volume of material into our stomach.The reflex may or may not trigger an emptying, but it is part of normal digestive action. You possibly reduce the frequency of emptying by adding some cereals or bananas to the diet.Plums/prunes/apple juice give more stools ...Read more

My 3 mo. Old has had yellow brown stools about 4-5times a day for the last 3-4 days different from his 1x to evey other day green poop. Is this normal?
Stools are OK: This can be normal. If you have changed what he/she is eating, then you will see a change in the frequency and color of the stool. If the baby is acting well, i wouldn't necessarily do anything different. If the baby is acting ill, then the increased frequency may be a symptom of the illness. The color isn't significant. If the baby is acting ill, and not eating well, he needs to see his doc. ...Read more

Today morning my daughter did yellow loose motion as she is 14 days old. Is there anything to worry about jaundice. Jaundice level was 13.65 on 10 day?

Over the past year my baby (now 18 mo) has had glucose tested 5 times. Non fasting is consistently 105-115. Is that normal?
Baby blood sugar: The non- fasting blood sugars you mentioned seem within normal limits. I have to think your pediatrician is concerned about something if they have checked your baby's blood sugar 5 times in a short period of time. If you have not already, I recommend you talk to your pediatrician about their concerns. ...Read more
I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl.She is 41 days old now.She was born cesarian surgery.Her weight at birth was 2 and half kilos. She had jaundice which was physiological jaundice and now shes fine but still her sclera is yellowish in colour.Is that so
No worries: Bring that up with your pediatrician. What is yellowish to you may not be actual yellow. To your doctor...May be a reflection of genetics or melanin content. Your pediatrician can reassure you by seeing it. Many newborns have yellowish color until about a month old..She is a bit older so it would be helpful to have her seen. It most likely just a bit prolonged in clearing. ...Read more
Yes: Your 1 month old can see clearly a foot or so and will gaze into your eyes for a time before deflecting.It is as if they fill up with the vision and must look away for a period before they can look back. Their ability to hold a gaze will gradually increase over time. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Nursing time: It is generally recommended that infants be encouraged to nurse 10 minutes on each breast to ensure appropriate nutrition and maintain lactation.

My daughter, Rachel is reaching 9 years this September. Her temperature is lower than normal for past 10 days. Her blood test is normal. Pls advise.
If my baby is 5month 3weeks, can he starts to drink 6 month old formula? What's the different between the first six month and after six month formula?
No problem: There is usually a reasonable amount of wiggle room in such things and i doubt 1 week will make a difference. Some formulas differ in their fat and caloric content for different ages to accomodate different nutritional needs in a growing infant. At 6 months, with the guidance of your doctor, you can also start "solids" (ie: jar baby food , baby cereal, or homemade purees). ...Read more
