They themselves call it "zoning out." if a stare occurs during a voluntary activity such as speech, eating, driving, etc, then it could be petit mal or absence seizures. Think of charlie brown's teacher's "wah-wah-wah" sound turnig off an inattentive charlie. Best to check those symptoms out with your doctor.

Is this new?: A blank stare can have lots of causes. Those with inattentive adhd might be so preoccupied with their own thoughts that a blank stare would be the result. But, if this is new, have the child assessed by a pediatrician or neurologist.

My daughter is one and I've notice when my daughter has a blank stare I see that her eyes wander. Her eyes don't cross but they the other way.?

My daughter is one and I've notice when my daughter has a blank stare I see that her eyes wander. Her eyes don't cross but they the other way.?

If both eyes turn: Out intermittently, seek referral to a pediatric ophthalmologist. Take a snapshot or video of her eyes when they wander to show her doctor. If one eye has blurred vision, she can develop amblyopia, or " lazy eye. If she has small, rhythmic movements (like brushing her hand against her hair) during a blank stare, ask about referral to a child neurologist to rule out minor motor seizures.

I think you can take: As many tests as you would want to believe, but it is widely known that if you do not protect yourself with contraception, the chance of conceiving is good in a normal fertile woman. And based on the result of the first pregnancy test, you would seem to be expecting. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap.

Baby, 8 months old, wake s up 10 times during night for many months, what to do?

Baby, 8 months old, wake s up 10 times during night for many months, what to do?

The question is: Whether it's medical or behavioral. Have a consistent bedtime ; routine: read, rock, feed, brush his teeth, then put him in his crib in his own room drowsy, but awake, without bottle or pacifier, to self-calm to sleep. He'll learn to settle back to sleep when he night wakes. If the pediatrician says he's healthy, ignore the night crying. www. AAP. Org has tips on how to do this in a graded fashion.

Sexuality: This question is not appropriate. You usually do not go to the doctor to learn how to be sexual. I would advise you get a sex 'how to' manual, such as 'the joy of sex" or to talk to your friends about their ideas on how to change your sexual experience.
