My baby 9mo. Always rubs her nose a lot when i'm trying to put her to sleep and when im trying to feed her too...Is this normal?

My baby 9mo. Always rubs her nose a lot when i'm trying to put her to sleep and when im trying to feed her too...Is this normal?

Nose-rubbing can be: A sign of an itchy nose from food allergies, if there's a strong family history & she has congestion or copious mucus. However, it can also be a self-soothing ritual, which is perfectly fine in infants & young kids. I hope you've established a consistent bedtime & ritual, reading, nursing, brushing her teeth, then putting her to bed drowsy, but awake, so she can self-calm if she night-wakes. ...Read more

<3 affects >1 person: Doctors need to know this history when seeing patients. There is an increased risk (generally 3-4%) that offspring will have some type of heart defect if there is a close family member with congenital heart defect.

38weeks pregnant,my baby is in postion head down, but she si looking up,how can i help her to turn her head and look down , cuz i wana a vaginal birth?

Vag. birth is likely: The "head down position" or cephalic/vertex at 38 wks improves your chances of a vaginal birth. "Her looking up or looking down" at this time is not of great importance. Her position when you go into labor, not now, may affect the progress of your labor and your chances of giving birth vaginally. Think positive. The odds are in your favor. ...Read more
