Why does my baby seem drunk after all feedings?

Why does my baby seem drunk after all feedings?

Satisfaction: Your baby is so happy, warm and full of milk; this is their way of showing satisfaction. Generally all that feeding makes them tired as well- so the half closed eyes and milk dripping down their chin is all normal and just means you had a good feeding.

Discuss with peds: Most folks wait till 6 months but many will start rice cereal at 4 months. Check with your pediatrician as to what makes sense for you and your baby.

I drunk medicol last night can it affect my 8 weeks unborn baby?

I drunk medicol last night can it affect my 8 weeks unborn baby?

Unfortunately yes: I believe medicol is a form of Ibuprofen (medicol is not sold in the us).Research shows taking Ibuprofen in early pregnancy significantly increases risk of miscarriage. Your baby will probably be alright but this did put him or her at significant risk. It's wise to ask this question before you take any medicine! See http://www. Theguardian. Com/society/2011/sep/06/ibuprofen-warning-to-pregnant-women.

If you concieve a baby when you are drunk, will that episode harm the baby?

If you concieve a baby when you are drunk, will that episode harm the baby?

Not likely: At the time fo conception, none of the fetal parts or organs are even starting to develop - so there is nothing to be damaged by the exposure to alcohol except the sperm and egg. If either were affected by the insult of the alcohol, then the pregnancy could not progress and develop. The result would be no pregnancy.

I Just Found Out I Was 6Weeks Pregnant But I Drunk One Beer Yesterday Should The Baby Be okay?

I Just Found Out I Was 6Weeks Pregnant But I Drunk One Beer Yesterday Should The Baby Be okay?

No worries: It is wise to minimize alcohol use during pregnancy but billions of women have had alcohol early in pregnancy before learning they are pregnant and it does not seem to be a problem. Some studies find possible problems with even one drink a week but a single drink should be no problem. See http://www. Babycenter. Com/0_drinking-alcohol-during-pregnancy_3542.bc & http://slate.

If im trying to get pregnant. Or I end up pregnant and not knowing about it, would it kill my baby if I got drunk on multiple occasions?

If im trying to get pregnant. Or I end up pregnant and not knowing about it, would it kill my baby if I got drunk on multiple occasions?

Not right: Every outcome is possible if you get drunk. It is not guaranteed that it will kill your baby, nor is going to help him grow normally. It may be dangerous for you and the baby. Please ask family and your dr for advice and get help, in any case. Best wishes.

We r planning to have a baby. Is it good to get a little drunk before having intetcourse? Does it affect my sperm. Way wud b ideal amt 2 drink

Why risk it: Sexual intercourse is such a thrilling and intimate activity, why would you want to dull that pleasure with alcohol. If your goal is to make your partner pregnancy, the enhanced stimulation without the use of alcohol can only be helpful. That said, alcohol probably will not interfere with the chance of pregnancy, but why b other?

See your doctor: Please go and see your doctor. There are many reasons why she may have this. Additionally, she does not need to drink any water. She needs calories from breast milk or formula.

Will a baby have problems when a woman drunk several glasses of alcohol on Week 5 of pregnancy? (she didn't know she was pregnant yet)

Unlikely: Single exposures are unlikely to have a noticeable effect on the baby. I is as common occurance in the way you describe. While it's effect may not ever be noticed, there is no way to be sure any alcohol exposure has not done something, so not drinking any more is the only realistic thing you can do.

Can your baby actually get "drunk" if there is alcohol in your breast milk?

Can your baby actually get "drunk" if there is alcohol in your breast milk?

Alcohol enters milk: Babies can experience the effects of alcohol and other substances that pass through the milk. Some substances get through in very small amounts, while others are concentrated in milk--giving the baby a higher dose per pound of body weight then the mom took. It is not recommended to consume much alcohol when breast-feeding. Some research suggests that even small amounts may have long-term effect.

Pregnancy question If the day someone. Had sex they were drunk, on substance then smoked month after could bby b ok not to abort or birth defects?

Difficult to say: Without having the names of the substances involved, it is hard to comment on their potential for producing harm. Defects are related both to the agent and timing of exposure. Some have no particular effect, some can produce major defects.

Bronchiectasis since a child, on oxygen 24/7- last 15 years. Legs swollen incontinent, nods off then speaks like drunk when awoken Congestive heart??

Sick: All these issues need a doctor's care. Low oxygen levels can lead to or worsen existing heart failure including the right side of the heart. Sleep apnea is also a possibility as is chronic respiratory failure but the patient needs to see a lung specialist.

My friend is a drunk. How can I help them?

Help with what?: If you want your friend to stop drinking, he or she has to want to or it doesn't work. Alanon is a 12-step organization designed for friends and loved ones of people with alcohol problems, and can help you deal with your concern, anger, guilt and other mixed emotions. We often 'enable' drinkers to keep drinking in ways we don't always understand and alanon can help reduce this. Don't nag-not helpful

Dose the truth come out when you are drunk?

Dose the truth come out when you are drunk?

Not always: Someone who has drank enough to be "sociable" (usually. 04-.14) feels that way due to alcohol suppressing one's inhibition (aka: filter/common sense/pc /etc.) so, what is said is not likely "different" per se, just un-filtered and more direct.

Can there be a pill that can make you drunk?

Yes: Are you asking if there are pills that can cause intoxication? If so, the answer is yes. They can be addicting & should only be used with clear medical indications.
