  • A woman planned to get pregnant 3 months after her first baby.Why do you think she is suffering from ongoing depression?

    Best answer: Yeah, because she has three extremely young children taking up ALL of his time and effort.
    Her own personaly career ambitions are now impossible, and she gets no free time to herself (as well as probably not sleeping well, or eating healthily).

    My 8 month old sister bites while being nursed and she refuses to drink from a bottle of milk, however she drinks water from a bottle? My mother has even tried nipple guards and checks the milk temperature in the bottle.

    I'm moving to a big city soon and want to find a job babysitting a newborn. I want to watch that specific age because I want a baby, but wont be having one anytime soon. I know most parents want sitters to be CPR/first aid certified, but more importantly, have experience with infants. the only experience I have is volunteering in nurseries in high school. I'm really hoping to build my skills and see if that will make up for lack of experience with that age. Are there any other certifications I can get that will help me get my foot in the door? And would it be weird to offer to babysit for free to see how I am with their child? I'm very patient with babies and absolutely love them. I'm 22 if it helps.

  • With a almost 6month old baby is it wrong to NOT change a pee diaper in middle of the night?

    Best answer: As long as they aren't getting a rash from it, don't bother changing it. You and they both need sleep, they need to learn to sleep through the night, and you should get your money's worth out of every diaper.

    Sleep > diapers

  • Infants Tylenol/children's tylenol?

    My 4 month old got shots today and the doctor said it was okay to give him some Tylenol if he started to develop a fever. She gave me a paper with dosage instructions on it saying for his weight he should get only 2.5ML. My husband being a worry wart gave him 1.25ml instead.

    My 4 month old got shots today and the doctor said it was okay to give him some Tylenol if he started to develop a fever. She gave me a paper with dosage instructions on it saying for his weight he should get only 2.5ML. My husband being a worry wart gave him 1.25ml instead. But didn't pay attention (in sleep deprived haze) grabbed the children's Tylenol instead of infants. I looked up and it says it's pretty much the same for both. But why would they make two different kinds if they were both the same? Unless I'm wrong?? Is there truly a difference?

  • Can I breastfeed and use formula?

    Best answer: Absolutely. However, if you want to breastfeed longer than a few months, you really should try to pump milk whenever you get a chance. The more often you empty your breasts, the more milk you'll produce and therefore the longer you'll be able to offer breast milk to your baby. By law, your employer is... show more
    Best answer: Absolutely. However, if you want to breastfeed longer than a few months, you really should try to pump milk whenever you get a chance. The more often you empty your breasts, the more milk you'll produce and therefore the longer you'll be able to offer breast milk to your baby.

    By law, your employer is REQUIRED to allow you time to pump milk for your breastfeeding child if you wish to do so. And you can get a breast pump used or even new from your insurance company.

    If you only nurse while home, you will likely lose your milk supply quickly and you'll end up needing to use formula full time. Nothing wrong with that. But it is generally recommended that you pump when you are not with Baby so you can keep your supply up and not suffer from things like mastitis or supply drops.
