• Does being born premature mean that you will never be as smart as you could have been if you were a full-term infant?

    Best answer: It depends upon *how* prematurely the baby is born, and whether they are breast fed. Premature births can deprive the child of valuable brain development, however, breast feeding can help make up the difference- depending upon how premature the birth was, and whether there were any other contributing factors.

    My 5 week old seems to always be hungry. She started with 2oz every 2 hours and now we’re up to 4-5 oz every 2 hours.. if she’s napping we make it to 3 hours sometimes! Is this normal? Is there anything I can do to put her on a better schedule

  • Can I give my newborn water?

    My daughter is 6 weeks old and has a nasty cough that sounds chesty and dry. She’s gulping a lot and I’m worried she has a dry throat, she hasn’t been sleeping for more than 20 minutes at a time. Am I okay to give her a bit of water (it will have been boiled and then cooled of course).

  • Is it okay to pick up the baby when it cries?

    Even after being fed , and changed. I personally don't think you can hold a baby too much but everyone pressures me about it.

    September, October, November, and December are the late months (school-wise). Are children more likely to fall under those months rather than January or May?

He calls me every break he gets and when he gets off he asks me if we need anything like diapers, food and what not. Hes good to me. All day I'm home alone with the baby since we came home from the hospital. At night I feel alone because hes side tracked with his video game or sleeping when he gets home. THen we go to bed I'm up most the night.. I want to cry I get up every three n a half hrs or less. The whole time it just feels natural to me, I love her so much already I don't complain, unless shes fussy I can't wait tell he comes home!! My back hurts so bad!!! I feel like its going to ache forever from the epidural Does other mothers go threw this. Staying home, loneliness, I have to get rest, find time to eat something which is hard, do side stuff , just having to deal with it everyday.

  • Is it ok for a baby to drift off to sleep on a pillow?

    Best answer: As long as you are sure you will stay awake and alert while he's on the pillow, and don't transfer him into the moses basket with the pillow, that's fine.

  • Am I wrong? Grandma needs to stay in grandma's place?

    Since my first born, their grandma (father's mom) has been overstepping her boundaries from the beginning. Now I do have resentment because she was so quick to deny my first born and didn't want nothing to do with him while I was pregnant. Now she won't let me be the parent.

    Since my first born, their grandma (father's mom) has been overstepping her boundaries from the beginning. Now I do have resentment because she was so quick to deny my first born and didn't want nothing to do with him while I was pregnant. Now she won't let me be the parent. When he was first born, she was trying to be in control so bad. Ex: I was breastfeeding him and he would be so fussy (all he wanted was the breast) but she would take him and think it was everything else wrong. Let him cry for an hour because she wanted to just have him all the time to only realize he wanted the breast. She hated that me and her son was together and did everything to break us up. It was terrible. Now my son is six and she tries to intervene on everything when half the time I already beat her to the punch. She feels as if it's her and her son child and he's not man enough to step up to her because he's definitely a mommies boy. And then when I tell her that I can handle my son, she talks as if I'm not capable. I know she genuinely cares. But let me do what I have to for my son. My son is really a great student and amazing young man. I just don't feel like she needs to try to take over everything I do for him. She don't help any other way she don't be there for him when I really need someone there, like babysitting or if I need help with getting him little things But when it's time for a spotlight at his school, she wants to bombard in like she's the parent. Am I wrong ?
