When Will My Baby Be Able To Turn The Pages Of Books
6-9 months: Most babies will begin turning pages of books at the same point they begin to reach out and use their hands to manipulate the world around them. Usually this occurs around 6-9 months of age, but don't be worried if it takes her a little bit longer. If you're not sure, it's always smart to ask your pediatrician to do a thorough developmental evaluation. The more you read to her, the better! ...Read more

Kidney Quandary: Unfortunately, the answer is no. One of the problems in chronic kidney disease is the inability to handle metabolic stress in the system. If you preferentially burn fat at the cost of little or no carbohydrate intake, you create ketones as a by-product of metabolism. This can cause significant stress on the liver and kidneys and it won't turn around CKD but may in fact make it worse. ...Read more

Hi, my names Amanda, im 19 years old now, but ever since I was born I've never been able to turn my wrist upright. A doctor said I have an extra bone.
Congenital radio-: Ulnar synostosis. In congenital radioulnar synostosis there is congenital fusion of the proximal ends of the radius and ulna, fixing the forearm in varying degrees of pronation. That means upper end of both the bones, radius and ulna are fused, making it impossible for radius to move for pronation and supination movement. In about 60 percent of cases, involvement is bilateral. ...Read more

Too many: You'd have to be more specific in your question. How many babies die…during birth? In the first month? From home accidents? From automobile accidents? From SIDS? From RSV? From meningitis? From abuse? From congenital heart disease? …. You see the answer depends on the details of the question. Using the details you're interested in (age and cause) then google your question for those statistics. ...Read more

Runner-stroller: Manny big stores carry the so-called runner-stroller (big wheels) designed for faster speed, thus you can use to push your infant along while running/exercising. Just make sure you find a path that is relatively smooth. You can also do treadmill, stationary bike, infront-of-tv activities at home while baby is asleep. If there is a will, there is a way--and u have the will. Consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more
Lack of energy: If an infant is ill, he/she will lack a vigorous cry, lack interest in feeding. The infant will sleep much more than normal. The muscle tone may be relaxed. The infant may have a lack of a normal suck. If you push your finger on the palm, and the color pink is slow in returning, the infant may be dehydrated or lack oxygen. Also observe the breathing effort; if fast seek help. See a doctor ASAP! ...Read more
Not recommended: Many children eat bits of dirt now and again. It is not recommended and most suffer no harm. There are some gems in dirt which can cause diarrheal illnesses and possibly some toxins in dirt. If your child eats a lot of dirt or eats it frequently, contact your doctor. Otherwise, wash his/her hands and distract him/her with another activity. ...Read more
Varies: I don't think there is an exact answer. The child would need to be able to manipulate the pieces. I think by 18 months, most children could do some easy shapes with help. Younger children might be able to do them and then some 2 year olds might have frustration with them. So try them and if they are too frustrating, then wait about 6 months and try again. ...Read more
See below: I assume you mean a forceps delivery. If so the injuries can be to the soft tissues around the baby's head, such as face and scalp. There can be tension related injuries due to the pressure used to extract the child. This can involve injuries to the nerves of the arm/neck which can result in torticolis. These injuries, and their relative risks, can be explained by your obstetrician. ...Read more
Congratulations on 2: The amnionic sac the fetus is wraped in tends to have a rubbery flexability / durability thru most of pregnancy. The presense of two does not deminish the strength of the wrap or change its composition. If your uterus tries to push babies out too soon the preasures could break the sac, as the would in any pregnancy. U will be closely monitored as the end approaches so your outcome can be the best. ...Read more

See the doctor: Your question is very general. How old is the infant? What are the problems you are concerned about.? Your baby should be getting regularly scheduled check-ups, which are a time for the pediatrician to examine them for problems and keep them up on their shots. That is the ideal time to address concerns that you may have. Call the doctors office at other times to mention your concerns. ...Read more
Misalignment: Babies can have issues (wiring in the brain, refractive errors, paralyses) which misalign the eyes (termed strabismus). This will drop the vision in one eye if not fixed. Less common are cataracts, glaucoma, tumors, maldevelopment, and some inherited problems. If you are the least bit uncertain, have your pediatrician check the eyes and see if a referral to an ophthalmologist is needed. ...Read more
