When Can I Give My Baby A Haircut
Never! : If by baby you mean a child less than a year, then never! babies don't need bubbles, they don't need perfumes, they don't need detergents, they hardly need " soap" at all! your babies skin will be healthiest with minimal bathing, every other day or so. If it smells good, don't use it! i recommend an organic body bar for my pediatric patients that comes from the middle of nowhere in montana. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Is it safe to give an 8 month old baby Infant Tylenol (acetaminophen) every day during teething to help with teething pain & discomfort? Baby's weight is 18 lbs.
Its up to you & babe: Over three decades I have seen consultants pro/con write about pacifiers.We are told babies are to confused if started early, but most will still breast feed well & they will never tell us why if they don't. I find babies put down to sleep with a pacifier will wake in the night and cry until someone puts it back in, not a good scene at 3am. Best use is when alert as a self soothing tool. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Typically at one: It is often recommended to change from baby formular to regular milk at around 12 months. Some folks start a bit earlier and some later, but one year is the usual mark.

Good luck. ...Read more

My baby's almost a week old, when can I take him outside? And when can I leave the house to do things?
No official time...: The american academy of pediatrics has no specific age cutoff before going in public. Airlines need a docs permission if newborn flying is less than 1 week.

Make sure close contacts have their whooping cough booster (tdap). ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Surgery involves making a circumferential incision around penis approx. 1 1/2 inches below the groove (coronal sulcus), freeing that skin up to cover the glans and covering the 3" gap with a skin graft ?From inner, upper arm. ? Worth it. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
