• How is it that people who speak out for and against breast feeding can't and don't make up their mind?

    Okay, here is what's going on, I notice one group says yes it is okay for mom to breast feast in the open, another says no it is not okay, and another is completely on the fence. Why can't society make up it's mind. yes, no?

  • Why do you think my 4 month old moves her head side to side about every five min?

    Best answer: Just sounds like shes figuring out how her body works and moves. My son did all sorts of crazy things, bobbing his head, blinking his eyes hard, etc they were all phases

  • How many times a day do you clean your baby?

    Best answer: Its not bad at all. Obviously you are not going to leave her all stinky and such, but Grandparents (and in laws) are quick to judge. Most mean well, but their delivery of their concerns needs to be toned down. You know how to care for your child...don't let the negativity affect that. If your mom cannot say... show more

Most mean well, but their delivery of their concerns needs to be toned down. You know how to care for your child...don't let the negativity affect that. If your mom cannot say anything helpful or positive, try to cut her off by saying, thank you for your concerns but I am doing just fine. My MIL was often critical of me while I was raising my son. She would often try to grab him right out of my hands while he was sleeping so I learned not to invite her over during his nap times. She also told me that touching my son's face and kissing him so much would ruin his skin...LOL, I still laugh about that one to this day. You just have to learn to maneuver around the comments and limit contact if necessary.

  • How did babies eat and survive all the thousands of years without formula?

    Best answer: I read somewhere that usually people lived in big groups or families and there was always enough women with babies, so if 1 women died, was sick, or couldn’t produce milk, there was always an auntie available with extra milk.

    Best answer: Yes..

    My MIL is an OB/GYN...

    Where I am all babies go to the neo natal unit for a few hours after they are born. That is where they give them all the necessary tests to determine that they are indeed healthy, they can hear and things like that, all babies are given a drug test too. I've had 4 babies and all of them did this (youngest is 2).

    A lot of hospitals now though, are giving mother/baby a couple hours of skin to skin contact, then taking the baby to the neo natal unit for their testing, unless there is a known problem with the baby.

    After the necessary tests are completed they return to the mom and/or general nursery. The only time I could see a healthy baby being in the NICU would be if the general nursery was full, they can use parts of the NICU as an additional nursery in a pinch. Most though are kept with the mom.

  • Vaccines for babies/kids. Which ones are not that necessary and what risks from getting them?

    Best answer: All the shots are necessary. Autism is not caused by vaccines. I personally did the alternate schedule where they received no more than two vaccines per visit. This wasn't because I'm concerned about autism, neurological damage, etc. It just minimized side effects like fever and fussiness. They still... show more
    Best answer: All the shots are necessary. Autism is not caused by vaccines.

    I personally did the alternate schedule where they received no more than two vaccines per visit. This wasn't because I'm concerned about autism, neurological damage, etc. It just minimized side effects like fever and fussiness. They still got their vaccinations on time, just a few more office visits within that timeframe.
