What should you do if your 3-year-old twins are afraid of your 5-month-old baby and you've tried gifts from the baby but they will have nothing to do with the baby?
\n. \n Answer \n. \n. \nHave explained to them what the baby is or have tried to explain to them that they used to be babies too and show them their pictures and the babies pictures and to explain to them that the baby will one day grow up just like they did and then get the one that's less …afraid or at least to touch the baby twins always follow suit if one tries the other one will too. Don't worry so much. They'll get over it when you give them a little responsibility for the baby like helping put the diapers in the bag or going to get the wipes or putting things away for you they will want to help and then you'll see it's just a phase nothing to worry about it's a new baby and all they have for the last three years were each other a newcomer something to get used to my nephew is going through the same thing but he likes the baby he just doesn't like all the crying and everything that goes along with him being a baby\n. \n Answer \n. \nThe above poster gave you some fine points. I was an only child for 6 years and then along came my brother. I can remember how I felt (that was 59 years ago!). I was jealous! Here was this crib with this tiny squirming "thing" in it making all this racket and I couldn't understand why my parents were all smiles as were my grandparents and friends. Often when a second baby comes into the house the first child is left out in the cold. You are certainly trying, but it takes time and as the other poster suggested get the twins involved in changing diapers, perhaps bottle feeding (if you are) and taking turns to help you push the baby's buggy. The twins have had an "in" with the immediate family and it's hard to share that with a new baby. \n. \nMy sister-in-law had her first son and 3 years later had her second son. Since she was suffering from postpartum blues with the second baby she was staying at my mother's house. I was over there to help out and the baby was in a bassinet on the floor. I just happened to peer over when I saw my 3 year old nephew try to stomp on the baby with one foot. Luckily I was able to grab my 3 year old nephew in time. Of course we didn't give him heck, but we told him it wasn't a nice thing to do and we made a big deal of telling him that he was THE OLDER BROTHER and that his little brother really needed his help. At that point my poor sister-in-law burst into tears and said, "He hates his own brother!" Of course this wasn't true and as soon as my sister-in-law was feeling better she got her 3 year old son involved in feeding, changing and playing with his new brother and all was well. In fact, one nephew is 22 and the other just turned 20 and at work they are called "The twins" because they are best buddies and look very similar. \n. \nIt would be a good idea to have your mother, mother-in-law or trusted friend look after the baby once in awhile and have some fun and quality time with just the twins. This way they have something to look forward too and little ones are smart enough to realize not much has changed after all. Ask family members to go to the twins first and make a big fuss, then the baby. I always do that. It seems to settle things down.\n. \nGood luck (MORE)
Answer . If you can't afford to go to the doctor then phone your pharmacist or go into the pharmacist and tell them how old the baby is and they will recommend something.

Until the age of one a respiration rate anywhere between 25-50 would be considered "normal"
He / She should still get formula or breast milk. Baby food in jars or cooked vegies or fruit that has been smashed. Graham crackers without the honey or regular saltines. No Whole milk yet. Nothing with peanuts in case they have allergies. Just try different baby food to see what they like. I w…ould add to the above list cereals such as porridge or weetabix but be cautious that many commercial breakfast cereals contain too much sugar and salt. (MORE)
At 17 months a child should have a few one-word utterances and be starting to use the first two-word utterances like 'Mummy gone'.
My daughter was born 8lb 13 oz. She weighted 18lbs at 6 months. It is totally normal. they are supposed to be gaining on a sliding scale. you need to check woth your doctor to make sure she is at a healthy percentile. I think ALL pedis do this. If not, find a new one!

A two month old baby weighing 12 lbs. is perfectly normal. Theaverage weight for a 2 month old is approximately 11 pounds for aboy and for a girl it is 10 1/2 pounds.
hi...i was curious as well...my grandson will be 1 in a couple of weeks...according to my research, whole milk should be consumed 16-24 ounces in a 24 hour period
I have a 3 month old son who doesn't make much eye contact as well. He started making some eye contact a few days after he turned 3 months old. Before this, he NEVER made eye contact nor looked at objects when I put it in front of his face. I took him to a ped and he thought he might be blind and to…ld me to go to an eye dr. I ended up going to 2 eye drs and they both said they didn't see any problems with his eyes. I had another ped take a look at him and he said that he defintely lacks in eye contact - he told me most kids this age will look at faces more. However, he told me that he is probably just delayed and told me to wait a month (until he turns 4 months). I had a ped neorologist (my son was 3 months 2 days old) and she said the same thing, that he definitely lacks in eye contact, but said it's way too early to tell if it is autism. She told me to wait 2 months and watch his overall development. She did tell me that she has seen children at 3 and even 4 months who have poor eye contact who end up being normal - some children are just delayed. My son is developing normally in every other way, he smiles, laughs, coos and babbles. He just learned to roll over from back to stomach and loves to grab things that are in his reach - especially his blanket. He still lacks in eye contact but has shown improvement. Like I said before - he never looked at me until after he turned 3 months old, but even now it's still not perfect. When I try to get him to look at me he will still turn away a lot, or when we are outside he would rather see what is going on around him. He will only make eye contact with me sometimes, like when I am siting next to him or standing over him. Sometimes he will track me a little across the room. He looks at my husband more than at me. I hope my story helped because I totally understand where you are coming from, and I am still worried about my son's eye development. I would tell you to just wait and see. Look and see how she is in a month. Don't worry about autism because it cannot be diagnosed this early. You have to watch your child's overall development. I'm sure she is fine! (MORE)
A majority of a 7-month old baby's diet should be of either breast milk or formula about 5-6 feedings a day. In addition the baby should eat either fruit and or vegetable at least once a day. The important thing about introducing new foods to a baby is one food at a time to test and see if the child… develops allergies. (MORE)
Babies vary greatly in size and weight, especially in infancy.Unless there are specific problems with the child's health, theweight is of little importance.
they usually don't weigh alot. just depending on how much you eat that gets to the baby.
Clean up the mess and wonder how our parents dealt with us all of those years. The child should be sick, but it is not poison. Bet he doesn't do that again!
There is no such thing as an absolutely normal weight for a child of given age. It depends on birth weight and also racial factors. The birth weight roughly doubles between five and six months.
i think you should feed your baby a couple times a day. or go to a store that sells baby food and you can ask them how much. sometimes it even says it on the baby food. i hope this is helpful. A 1yr old should really be on 3 solid meals a day - breakfast, lunch and dinner, with snacks in between an…d probably 2 or 3 milk feeds (one with breakfast, one before bed and maybe one more at snack time).

It's not that bad, but you should start consider taking some antipyretic drugs like paracetamol and drink lots of water.
I think about 75 cm, if you look at the mid line in your red book.
103 is considered a high fever in a 12 year old. Except if thechild has flu symptoms along with the fever of 102, if that is thecase, call the doctor when the fever reaches 102. You should alsocall the doctor sooner than 103 if your child has had seizures inthe past.
In warm weather or a warm house in cool weather offer baby water asneeded for thirst. Babies get thirsty just like everyone else -just don't give him or her so much that it interferes with food orformula - a couple ounces at a time between breast feeding andformula is plenty from a cup or bottle dep…ending on their age. If breastfeeding, no water is needed. Especially if the baby isconsuming an adequate amount of breast milk. I breastfed all 3 ofmy children and never supplemented with H2O despite my mother'sdismay. Moreover my OB and the kid's pediatrician confirmed it wasbest to encourage and offer BM than to fill the baby up with H2O.The mothers BM has an amazing balance of everything the baby needs. Now if formula feeding, I would still keep H2O to a minimum,otherwise babe is getting full on water instead of the nutrients,electrolytes he/she could get from the formula and a healthy diet. I am no doctor, just passing on advice from my own doctor and thekid's pediatrician. Remember to always seek formal advice from yourown doctor who is familiar with your kid's medical history. Your baby should be having small amounts of water with his mealspreferably from a sippy cup. This is so that he gets used to theidea of getting fluids from some other source. Although breastmilk/formula should still be their main source offluid, your child is well on the way to becoming a toddler. He willperhaps be starting nursery and BF may not be viable. I am writing this on the hottest day of the year, and it'simportant to remember that weaning babies will need extra water tostop them becoming dehydrated. By the way, when I say givesupplementary water I mean a couple of ounces every hour or so inhot weather. (MORE)

You should probably go to the emergency room to be safe. Otherwise if things don't seem so bad, you could just make sure that she has plenty of fluids (water, milk), and that the baby continues to have a normal temperature. But you would have to check up on her throughout the night to make sure she …is doing well.. If it's just a rash, if the rash is very bad you should definitely go to the emergency room. If it's not that bad, you can probably wait for the doctor.. If she is having any trouble breathing, definitely go to the emergency room because she could be having an allergic reaction that might be very bad (if she was stung by an insect).. If you have a stethoscope you could check the baby's heart to make sure it is beating fine, and also the baby's breathing.. But definitely if you want to be safe you should go to the emergency room and allow a professional to see her. It's better to be safe than sorry. (MORE)
Infants at that age can have a fever for varying reasons. Until they are 2 months of age, a fever above 101 degrees Fahrenheit should be taken seriously. Contact your physician for treatment ASAP. This isn't something to panic about, but just to be monitored closely. Usually a treatment of infant Ty…lenol and infant Motrin are ordered. After 2 months of age a fever of 103 or less is not alone something to panic about. If it doesn't go down with infant Tylenol lasts longer then 24 hours, or is accompanied any other symptoms contact your child's physician. (MORE)

If the baby is not having fever, but he is still feeling warm ,sensible parents should cover their child with warm clothes in order to prevent him from further diseases.
Seek medical attention immediately! Could be a sign of an infection or some more serious condition that could be very dangerous to an infants health if not treated quickly.
Depending on the lab, the ranges vary slightly but it seems to be between 11-13 for normal levels in a one year old. According to Wikipedia: Hemoglobin concentration measurement is among the most commonly performed blood tests , usually as part of a complete blood count . For example it is typica…lly tested before or after blood donation . Results are reported in g / L , g/ dL or mol /L. 1 g/dL equals about 0.6206 mmol/L.  Normal levels are: Men: 13.8 to 18.0 g/dL (138 to 182 g/L, or 8.56 to 11.3 mmol/L) Women: 12.1 to 15.1 g/dL (121 to 151 g/L, or 7.51 to 9.37 mmol/L) Children: 11 to 16 g/dL (111 to 160 g/L, or 6.83 to 9.93 mmol/L) Pregnant women: 11 to 12 g/dL (110 to 120 g/L, or 6.83 to 7.45 mmol/L)  [54 ] ^ Hemoglobin Level Test . ^ Although other sources can have slightly differing values, such as http://www.gpnotebook.co.uk/simplepage.cfm?ID=1026883654 .

Around 30 ounces of milk will be consumed by a 12 month old baby ina 24 hour period.
A baby three months old should be getting fed breast milk as it isbetter for your baby. It has all of the nutrients and vitamins ababy needs. A baby should get about 4 ounces of formula.
If a 10 month old has a fever of 105 call your pediatrician and ask what to do. If you absolutely can not get any help, take a washcloth and rubbing alcohol and wipe that on the baby. It might bring down its temperature. Still, it is better to get medical help than someone using an ancient technique…. (MORE)
It varies from person to person. If the baby was born on time and not early or too late then i think it is about 10 lbs. My children were all that weight, except my youngest but she was a premie and has health problems. But like i said it varies.
Because the baby is vastly growing in these 12 months, it needs to have as much nutrients as possible. Letting them have milk for a year gives their brains the proper nutrients for development.
i weigh 3 pounds and i was late so 5 at the heaviest or the baby is mordily obest lol
Yes, of course! And some are even born with deciduous teeth/ milk teeth/baby teeth/temporary teeth/primary teeth
I don't think theirs any age that's illegal to babysit a 21 month newbie. I think the legal babysitting age is 11 though. Probably 5-6 hours(:
100.4 is not a fever once you have reached such a temperature you are now facing the next step higher, which is Hyperthermia. Hyperthermia is considered very dangerous and does require emergency medical treatment. Being exhausted could just be a side effect of your Hyperthermia. You do need to see… a doctor right away, if a 24 Hour clinic is not open i do suggest you go straight to the Emergency Room. (MORE)
if a petite girl, add 4 inches for body and 2 in arms, for the length in both. for the width, add 2 inches in sides and back and 1 in for width in arms.
approximately every 3-4hours although all babies are different and it will also depend how big they were at birth, if they were born early / late etc. A week or two and a couple of pounds in weight can make a big difference to their feeding habits.
by 1 month the babies should already be in new homes and separated from the mother by 21-27 days after one week of being separated from the mother they should be gone
You should seek medical advice to see if there is any medical reason why your baby cannot drink milk and get advice on the alternatives available for baby feeding.
Give him/her plenty of water, the baby loses a lot of water when having diarrhea, and go see a doctor.
You can to have some tummy time...this will help build core muscles to strengthen the back arms and belly for him/her to push up and eventually crawl. .but certainly not to sleep. Always on the back.
my babies watched Baby Einstein videos starting about four months old and have enjoyed them very much. the videos also helped me teach them. they also liked the Sesame Street Beginnings DVDs.
It depends on what kind of thermometer you have. If you are simply looking for a general idea, place a themometer under the arm. You need to hold their arm down - which is usually easier if you can lay them down and give them a fun toy to look at. If accuracy is important, a rectal thermometer is …best for infants. In that case, be sure to use a thermometer intended for that use. It usually doesn't bother them, and if you can do it when you do a diaper change... they barely notice you are doing anything unusual. (MORE)
You wiegh your child in Kilograms rather than pound. You are a terrible parent and should be put in prison.
Babies "use" their legs from birth with kicking. From about 3 months old with scooting, then crawling. Around 9 months, give or take a month, babies can stand while holding on. Slowly they learn to let go and simply stand and balance by themselves. And finally, they learn to walk independently,… first with falls and mishaps before mastering the skill. (MORE)
it depends on how much a baby can take, its usually around 1.5 glasses of milk at different intervals.
