Question by warblinginchitown18:
Ok, my baby was slightly Jaundice the day after she was born…She was born 3 wks early…They tested her the next day at the hospital because she became more jaundiced and her bilirubin levels were 11.4 which is borderline.

Couple of Newborn Basic Questions?
Im a new mother, baby girl is 5 days old. I have a couple of new mommy questions
1. right now she is sleeping with me and my husband, which is fine for NOW, but when should she be sleeping in her crib? During the day I do put her in her crib so she can get used to it, but at night time she wants nothing to do with it. I have a night light in her room so it is not pitch dark..I just do not her to get to used to sleeping with us. Any Tips?
2. I am bottle feeding and I have the formula where you do not need to add water. Can she drink it cold or do I need to warm it up? Is powerder superior or liquid??
3. Do you know any good bottles? I have had problems with bottles, she would suck and suck and nothing would come out and by the time something would she exhausted of sucking and her little tummy was full of air. I tried the Playtex VentAir and no no. Right now im using the I think Playtex DropIns? Its seems to working good but if anyone nows of a REALLY good bottle i would love to try them.

Question by Noah’s Mommy:
Constant sweats at night, body odor bad for nursing?
Ok, ever since i had my daughter (8 weeks ago) i have been so sweaty at night. I have never been this warm at night, i am usually a very cold person. But i wake up drenched in sweat. Now, even if i take a shower before bed i feel yucky and stinky from sweating. With my breasts being much larger than they used to be they, in turn, are sweaty too. If this causes body odor, is it going to effect my baby if she is getting my sweat in with the milk? If so, what might some side effects be? I know this is a gross and weird question but i had to ask. Thanks for any suggestions.

Should you keep your newborn up?
I was tiring to keep my newborn (3 weeks old) up during the day. I was thinking to get more sleep at night- it back fired and she was so out of sorts that she was awake for 9 hours stright! She awoke the next day with little bags under her eyes.
So, my question is has anyone tried this with success? Does it really work or am I just wishing for a miracle?
If it doesn’t work when should i start with a regular schedule for her? If that is a Realistic question at all ?

Do bedtime routines for infants and babies carry over into toddler-hood?
I have a 10.5 month old who has a bedtime routine and goes to sleep by himself every night in his own bed. If I continue with the bedtime routine and him sleeping in his own bed as he gets older will it carry over into his toddler years and grant for peaceful bedtimes and nights? Just curious.

Question by mommy of 2 girls:
just looking for views on my bad situation I am so upset?
Open QuestionShow me another »
Long pregnancy story It was the worst few day of my life only unbiased answers plz?
Long pregnacy story unbiased answers only please!?
Well I was 16 weeks and 3 days on Monday the 24th. I went to an ultrasound at a place where the specialize in maternal fetal medicine and have a perinatalogist. It was the worst day ever they did an ultrasound and this is what they said to me.
Things missing/ not visible that should be by now
cerebellum- without possible death after birth, no speaking or walking severe disability
no nasal bone- meaning down sydrome or a likely possibilty there of
heart – does not have all 4 chambers
2 vessel umbilical cord +30% chance of disabilities, syndromes
missing part of finger on it’s left hand also sign for down syndrome
The tech and Doc REFUSED to give me photos of the babies face or to show me it in 3d???? They gave me a photo of the face at 12 weeks that did not show much but I still got one! All they would give me was 3 big photos of the genitals??? I want to see her face!! OMG they scared the living out of me!!!!
Well I planned this baby and now this. I thought about abortion. How can I carry a baby with severe disabilities and that has a good chance of dying at an early age if not soon after birth. So I went to a clinic they took off my cerclage. And put a dilator or laminaria tht dilates the cervix. The next day I was supposed to get an abortion but once I found out how they do it I said I’d would never let that happen so I called my PSYCHO OB. She is against abortion. I only believe it is ok if you are raped or there are severe complications like my case.
Well I talked to my Ob who told me to go to hospital she took out the laminaria and scheduled a cervical cerclage so the baby would be ok I was only dilated 0.5cm. My doc is psycho cause I heard shes one of those people that boycott abortion clinics etc… Anyway I am having this baby no matter what I just was in a panic. Also if I did not go to the clinic this week I would have to pay 1200 more =2000, next week.
So anyway I had an ultrasound the first night after the laminaria was taken out. The tech there even though a different place was not granted to speak to me and I asked for a photo of the babies face he said ok then looked at it and said well let me print a cd for you and you’ll get it tonight. He never did. The next day I was scheduled at 10:30 for cerclage. I asked again 7am for my cd I did not get it they proised it later though it takes 10 min to make. My surgery was all of a sudden pushed to 8:30 am so I could not see my ultrasound photos first??? I begged nurse let me see them first in case there is a serious complication with the baby she said I have to get the surgery done first or doc says she will not do it. I went ahead cause if she will not do it no one will and if the baby is ok it will be too late so I was forced into without knowing if my lil baby is ok.
So 9:55 I get a spinal that usually wears off in 1 hour I have had 2.
An hour goes by they put me in my room.
My daughter is sleeping on my bed she is 9mos and my husband is in the room.
The nurse says” THE DOC WANTS TO BAKER ACT YOU!!!!’
I am not suicidal and never said I would hurt my self nothing negative just that I want this baby to be ok.
I used to work in this hospital so they know me and I run codes and intubate people save lives etc.. My doc embarassd me to no end.
I asked why? The nurse says the doc thinks you will hurt yourself or the baby you are carrying. NO WAY!!! My 9 month old was on my lap mind you I still could not feel anything from the waist down. I would always be ok and never hurt myself or my baby I did not get the abortion and I have a 9monh old to take care of and be strong for!
Well I said I am out of here bring me a wheel chair please. My hubby was so upset me too We got ready and they tried to stop me and would not help me to the chair. They had to wait for the doc for a legal Baker act order. Well I was not waiting they stalled an hour! My husband helped me to the chair I really could not even stand he had to lift me. No one helped us leave my hubby pushed me in the chair I pushed the stroller in fromt of me he put us in the automobile and took the wheel chair back and 3 security guards were looking for me they cam running out the door my hubby jumped in the automobile and we lefted. I would not have seen the psycholgis till SundaySo I would have been stuck there for almost 4 days and would have been watched 24/7 even in the bathroom. I did not deserve this just because maybe I would have had a legal abortion. I did not do it though. This doc is out of her mind! I am gonna try to sue this is crazy and will get around to everyone I know. I already filed a HIPAA violation from my last cerclage on 7/23. I was already gonna get a new Ob and have an appointment on the 9th next month. I only went to her cause I had no choice if I wanted to keep my baby. I should still be on antibiotics iv
thanks all I am not worried about CPS cause I own my home I am seeing a doc on Monday and they can inspect at anytime my home is perfetly clean I have two beautiful nurseries and my baby needs 2 closets for her clothe and I buy her formula a monthat a time

Question by di0nne:
Feeding issues in 16 week old?
My wee boy started having feeding issues about 2 weeks after his first immunisations. I thought it was due to him having a cold, however the problems have persisted even though the cold has now passed.
Typically he will only take 2 or 3 oz at a feed. Sometimes 4 or 5 at a push. Even this can be a battle, even though he is obviously hungry. He moves his head from side to side and gets upset and screams. He often gets so upset that he makes his body poker straight and tries to throw himself off my lap! Every so often he surprises me and takes 9oz without any fights, which just makes me more concerned about the other feeds which are problematic.
Initially I thought it was wind, so would stop him to have a burp, usually there are no burps and he then refuses to return to the feed. I do think he is teething (health visitor agrees), so give him some bonjela or teething powders before a feed, this doesn’t seem to help. I also spoke with pharmacist who thought it may have been reflux and tried infant gaviscon. The gaviscon certainly stopped him from bringing back up as much, but did not improve feeding time and made him constipated. I have tried size 3 teats but he finds these too fast.
I’ve spoken to various health visitors and my GP to no avail. I either get told he is being awkward or it is my fault as I am getting stressed about feeding him. Even though I disagree, I have tried to make sure I chill out and only offer him what he needs, but I am still concerned about this behaviour. He is on the 75th centile and currently weighs 7.12kg. I am not concerned about his weight and I do not think he is unwell as he seems happy and alert between feeds. I do not work to a schedule, he is demand fed. I just want feeding time to be pleasant for us both.
Any recommendations or advice?
