When is the soonest I can get my baby into a routine?

When is the soonest I can get my baby into a routine?

Sooner than thought: Day 1 is not too early to start. You can help shape your newborn's behavior by working on a consistent eat/play/sleep pattern by day and eat/sleep by night, starting when you get home. Most babies can be on a consistent three-ish hour routine/schedule by 2 weeks of age. Two caveats: 1) baby cannot be held 24/7 and 2) you will need to tolerate some fussing at times. Discuss with your doctor. ...Read more

When I have my baby can I get a DNA test a the hospital?

When I have my baby can I get a DNA test a the hospital?

Yes, separate cost: Paternity testing becomes less risky after a child is born. Samples simply need to be collected from the mother, father, and child and based upon those samples all of the genetic markers in the dna can be used to establish paternity. The easiest of all of the collection methods is via cheek swab for saliva and cheek cells. The collection is so simple in fact that at home paternity testing kits are. ...Read more

This is my first child when will i start showing.? And when can I kno the sex of my baby.?

Mid teen weeks. : Most women start to show at some point in the second trimester. A lot depends of course on your body type, abdominal musculature, and growth of the amniotic sac. The 20 week ultrasound is when you might find out the sex of the baby, but while usual they have a pretty good idea at that visit it's not guaranteed they'll know for sure. ...Read more

Hi every year I fly to new mexico to see family and I have a baby on the way he/she will be 4 month and I was wondering if it can hurt the baby at all?

Hi every year I fly to new mexico to see family and I have a baby on the way he/she will be 4 month and I was wondering if it can hurt the baby at all?

Not at all: Keep up her regular food and sleep schedule if possible, and try to fly after her second set of shots, usually at 4 months. She will be well protected. It is safest for her to fly strapped in a car seat, but the only way to be sure of that is to buy her a ticket, which not everyone can afford; instead, try to pick a flight which is not full and use the seat as your carryon. Use bottled water. ...Read more

Depends: Your chances may be very high or you may have a more difficult time. If you try to conceive without success for 6 months, certainly a fertility evaluation is warranted. But you should never be pushed into anything so make sure you are comfortable with the situation! ...Read more

Hi... I had an ultrasound and the tech used a vibrator to wake my sleeping baby up... "IS THAT A SAFE METHOD FOR THE BABY"????

I am having my baby in about an hour and it is vaginal with my 1st child what can I expect during the pushing stage Will they give me oxygen or gas?

Not always: You will only need oxygen if your babies heart rate goes down and stays down for too long while you are pushing Remember to take deep breaths and hold the air in your lungs while you push. Push while the nurses count to 10. Try to get 2 pushes for each contraction. The nurses will tell you exactly what to do so you don't have to memorize this! LOL Good Luck! ...Read more

How can I get my baby to sleep later in the morning?

How can I get my baby to sleep later in the morning?

With difficulty!: It's not easy. Try to under-react when he or she wakes-- let some fussing occur, don't rush in there. Try to keep shades nice and dark so the morning sun doesn't brighten the room. When babies become old enough to be interested in toys and books, leave some of those in the crib for am self-entertaining. Good luck! ...Read more
