Why is it that 8th month babies are in more danger than 7th month babies?
hi, i onloy found this out with my second child due to planned c section, a babies lungs are full obviously not in use while inside you, but at 8 months their lungs fill up with fluid to aid them in maturing, if a baby is born at 7 months, the lungs are clear so has better chance of breathing alone than at 8 motnhs when lungs are full, its called wet lung from what i remember. but by the time they hit the 9 month and ready mark the lungs empty again ready for delivery and breathing oxygen when born. hope this helps x

The baby probably would not test positive, but could be born with brain damage, birth defects, and already addicted. I worked in a neonatal ICU and dealt with cocaine addicted… babies. It was a very sad thing. They would lay there at a couple days of age shaking and crying from withdraw. It is an awful thing to do to a baby.
it is perfectly safe for a baby to fly on a plane as long as they are sucking on a pacifier or bottle feeding during take off and landing.
I wouldn't exactly say that it is dangerous but it can have some threatening effects...you need to give your body time to heal and recover from the first pregnancy
If you're pregnant and smoke crack and stop for more than a month would the baby test positive for cocaine?
Why does the answer matter, you shouldn't smoke crack when pregnant, or AT ALL for that matter.

The answer to this commonly asked question is NO. Now don't mistake this answer as saying they are not dangerous, because they most certainly are. Baby rattlesnakes are born w…ith venom and fangs in-tact, and can deliver a life threatening bite. Now were this idea probably comes from, is because baby rattlesnakes are more likely to bite than most adult rattlesnakes. This is due to the fact that they are small and therefore more vunerable to falling prey to a larger animal. Also, as babies, they are more likely to deliver a full dose of venom, whereas an older rattlesnake may only deliver a small portion, or even no venom at all (refered to as a dry bite) for defensive purposes. In escence, there is a higher probability of receiving a bad bite from a baby vs. an adult. You can figure that 99% of bites from babies will result in envenomation compared to maybe 85% of adult bites. However, a bite from an adult rattlesnake can be far more dangerous having a much greater venom yield than a baby, easily 10 times as much or more. Of course, there are many variables to consider including venom toxicity, venom yield, temperments, and locations as to the danger of various rattlesnakes. But ALL rattlesnake bites are to be considered a life threatening medical emergency. Don't wait to see if maybe you got lucky and received a dry bite. Seek medical attention immediately with any rattlesnake bite as the sooner you begin treatment, the better your chances of surviving and minimizing long term complications.
ring your nursecall number or local health care number. its getting a little high, tepid sponging, remove clothing etc.
Yes, it is very danderous because he could choke and die
Your baby has grown tremendously and he/she has less room to move around at 8 months. If you are keeping your regular doctors appointments and your doctors is giving you the "…ok" on the progress of your baby, then everything should be fine...but to be on the safe side and to put your mind at ease, make an appointment to see your doctor.
This is not true as surfactant, which helps to keep the lungs open and prevents the tiny alveoli from sticking together, is not formed until 37 weeks gestation. The most commo…n lung problem in a premature baby is respiratory distress syndrome (RDS), also known as hyaline membrane disease (HMD).
Baby scorpions can't control the amount of venom the put into a sting unlike an adult, they'll put all the venom they have into a sting. So yes.
no, what kind of question is that...thats not possible
The shortest pregnancy where the baby survived was just under 5 months. So yes it can happen.
There is a difference between delivering at 7 and 8 months. It's not an old nurses tale. The difference is lung function. At 7 months the lungs are developed and have high sur…factant production. At 8 months the surfactant production slows because it is not needed immediately. It is better to deliver at 7 months because surfactant production is high, which means easier breathing for any child, regardless of race. Don't worry though, if you are 8 months, your MD may order a steroid injection to help you baby's lungs.
Why is it easier for a baby to survive when it is born in the eighth month rather than the sixth month?
A baby does not have well developed lungs and other vital organs to survive on its own until later in the pregnancy. it is always best to be as close to 40 weeks as possible.
yes. Lungs are more fully developed, etc.
It's not, this is a myth someone made up. The longer the fetus stay in the womb the safer it is.
