Question by Lenore S:
Why do parents think they need a 5-point harness on their stroller? Were so many babies jumping out?
I’m writing a book about safety products for children and this is one I just do not understand. A lap belt seems to be all the protection young ‘uns need.
Question by nanr93:
Do cloth diapers really keep babies dry, and do they leak?
I’m anticipating my first child (a boy) in October, and am thinking about using cloth diapers instead of disposables. Seems like a responsible choice both for the environment and for my bank account. But is it responsible for my son?
I’m looking for specific experiences with cloth diapers, please, not links or other information about maintaining a green home.
Of course, I am referring to the new cloth diapers that come with velcro, no diaper pins, that include flushable liners, and that can be used from birth through potty training.
Question by AshletD:
Will they give a baby immunizations without looking at their medical records first?
I’m taking my twelve month old daughter to the pediatrician tomorrow for a well-baby visit, but I have not been able to get her medical records transferred from her old physician in Arizona (we now live in Indiana). I am sure they’ll do the regular stuff- listen to her chest, get her height/weight, etc…but will they do her immunizations? I do not have a copy of her official records from the doctor’s office, but I do have a Say of Arizona shot record book that was filled out by the nurse at her last pediatrician’s office…all the shots are dated and signed for. Do you think that would be acceptable? I do not want her to get behind. If they do not do them tomorrow, do you think that scheduling another appointment would really make that much difference, so long as she gets the vaccines within the suggested time frame? I am not even sure what she’s supposed to get tomorrow, but I think it’s the MMR. If anyone has any info about this, please let me know. Thanks.
Question by mummy:
Is it true that when babies are teething they can get nappy rash?
I have a four month old and she looks like shes slowly starting to get itchy gums. My first also started teething this early, thats how I know. She has a bad nappy rash, even though I change her so often and put tons of nappy rash cream on. I heard that some babies get bad nappy rash when they are teething. Is that true or a myth?
Question by knitter1:
Re: bumpers for baby’s crib – are they really safe to use?
I plan to decorate my nursery with a lovely 3 or 4 piece crib set, which
include a comforter, crib sheet, dust ruffle and a bumper. They come in an assortment of beautiful colors, designs and fabrics. What’s your opinion: are they safe to use for a newborn baby? Should I be concerned about safety, SIDS? Are there bumpers which are the most safe, which do not come in a 3 or 4 piece crib set? Thank you, everyone for your suggestions, views and comments!

Question by georgia_1234567890:
What sort of feeding problems would a baby have if they have a cleft palate?
Question by TarasBoutiqueAtEtsy:
Why do babies massage your chest while they nurse?
Breast fed babies are known to poke, prod, kneed, squeeze, pat and grab…but why?
2 QUESTIONS. 1.) WHAT POSITION IS YOUR BABY IN WHEN THEY GIVE HIM/HER IMMUNIZATIONS? 2.) PAIN MANAGEMENT USE?
Question by ĀŢĿĄŜ↔ĴŮŅĶĬĒ:
2 questions. 1.) What position is your baby in when they give him/her immunizations? 2.) Pain management use?
1.) I came across an article this day on Bump.com (http://pregnant.thebump.com/new-mom-new-dad/baby-basics/articles/vaccinations-what-baby-will-need.aspx ) and the picture of the baby being injected is on his/her stomach. All of my daughter’s immunizations have been given while she was lying on her back on the exam table. I think it might have been easier on her if they had given me the opportunity to lay her on her stomach because she would not see what was happening. BTW, I tried to have her given the shots while my she was nursing but the nurse told me that the office policy was that the baby had to be on the exam table, for safety reasons. (That was just one more thing that really turned me off to that doctor.) My daughter is on an substitute immunization schedule so she only received the 4 main infant vaccines thus far. I chose to do only 2 at a time so maybe the nurse thought since it was only 2 it would be easiest to just have her laying on her back, I do not know. My daughter is now 15 months old and I have since changed Peds (for numerous reasons) however she hasn’t had any more shots since we switched so I do not know if this new office does it the same way and I have not thought to ask yet. So what position does your Ped/nurse put your baby in when they give the immunizations? On tummy? On back? Seated? Do they grant you to nurse during the shot or only afterward?
2.) Also, have you ever used any pain management techniques? I know there is a cream called EMLA (http://www.drugs.com/pro/emla.html ) which is basically Lidocaine and another topical that numbs the area where the shot will be given. I have not used it yet but I am considering it. Has anyone else used this or another method for pain management for their child? I know it can also be used before a circumcism so the newborn doesn’t feel the pain of the cutting.
Thanks in advance for your answers!
Yes, Avary’s a little toughie too. She screams when they first do the injection but I pick her right up and she’s fine. I just do not want her associating the doctor’s office with all negative thoughts. I know even pets that get shots at the vet get so worked up and scared when they know they are going to the vet. My cat starts meowing so loud as soon as we get to the door. He knows what’s coming. EVen if it’s not a shot visit, he freaks out. I just do not want Avary to have that anxiety whenever we have to go to the ped.
Thanks for all the great answers!
