Recently a great deal of progress has been made in identifying the earliest signs of autism and related autistic spectrum disorders ASD. This has been made possible largely through prospective studies of high risk infants all with an older sibling with ASD, in which it has been possible to identify infants suspected of having autism by as early as 12-18 months. This intervention protocol is implemented in a home setting and incorporates principles of parent responsiveness training and applied behavioral analysis. During a period of 6 months, parents will receive intensive training and comprehensive clinical support in order to determine if this intervention changes the developmental trajectory of toddlers considered at high risk for developing autism.

Two at-risk infants, one with a high-risk medical history and one with a low-risk history, were assessed and videotaped using the Movement Assessment of Infants. 41 physical therapists were randomly assigned to assess the videotaped examinations in four groups with different knowledge of the infants' histories high-risk infant with actual or low-risk history; low-risk infant with actual or high-risk history. The clinical significance of the difference in total risk scores between knowledge conditions of a high-risk history and a low-risk history was greater for the low-risk infant. The higher mean total risk score for the low-risk infant assessed with a high-risk history suggests that false positive results could occur which may alter parents' perceptions and interactions with the ...

Medical problems, including some birth defects and certain infections acquired during the pregnancy, can affect a child's birth weight and later growth. Many pre-term babies are classified as having "low birth weight" or "very low birth weight."

How to Avoid a Heart Attack. THURSDAY, March 15, 2012 HealthDay News — Women who deliver full-term infants with low birth weights have nearly double the risk of developing ischemic heart disease, a new study says. These types of pregnancies may cause long-term cardiovascular changes that increase a mother's risk for heart disease, according to the researchers at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston. Ischemic heart disease affects the supply of blood to the heart. The rate of heart disease was 5.7 percent in women who gave birth to a normal-weight baby. "We were especially surprised that when we adjusted for family medical history and known risk factors such as smoking — which significantly increases the risk of heart disease and low-birth-weight infants — remained a powerful independent risk ...

Featured Web Site: Advances in Colorectal Cancer Research. Past Issues. Infants Can Learn While Sleeping Snoozing newborns may have more going on than you think. Even when asleep, babies are capable of a simple form of learning, a new study shows. To see whether newborns could learn about relationships between events while sleeping, NIH-funded researchers studied 1- or 2-day-old infants. The scientists repeatedly played a brief musical tone followed by a faint puff of air to each sleeping infant’s eyelids. After several repeats, the researchers played a tone without the air puff. After about 20 minutes, the tones made most infants 24 out of 26 scrunch their faces even without the puff of air. Infants who were exposed to random, unpaired tones and air puffs ...

If there are signs the baby is not doing well, treatment can be given right in the delivery room.

Babies who may have difficulty at birth include those born prematurely, those who experienced a difficult delivery, maternal illness severe diabetes, infection, hypertension, or those with birth defects.

*  Infant immune systems learn fast, but have short memories
Image: Wikimedia Commons Forgetful immune systems leave infants particularly prone to infections, according to a new Cornell University study. Upending the common theory that weak immune cells are to blame, the study has found that infants' immune systems actually respond to infection with more speed and strength than adults, but the immunities they create fail to last. Our finding could change the way we immunize infants and ultimately lead to more effective ways of enhancing immunity in early life." Immunity against most microbes depends on forming "memory T cells " that remember specific pathogens and can rapidly respond to future infections. When faced with the same pathogen, newborn immune systems made T cells that responded more rapidly to infection than adult cells, but quickly became terminally differentiated, never making it into the memory pool. Explore further: Early activation of immune response could lead to better vaccines Journal reference: Journal of Immunology. ...

Late preterm, though high-risk babies, don t have as many of the complications as preterm babies, which are those infants born at less than 33 weeks. What kind of help does the NICU newborn intensive care unit administer to babies. A term baby is 40 weeks, or approximately nine months. In addition to preterm babies, the NICU has a lot of term babies who also are ill, babies with congenital defects or who should have been born normal but were sick with various afflictions. Babies who are 35 to 36 weeks generally do not have to spend time in the NICU, unless they have preterm issues that need support, such as help with their temperature or their feeding. You can do everything right: get prenatal care, not smoke and have a healthy diet most of our babies are born to moms who have great prenatal care and still go into labor early. A big issue is difficulty bonding with and breast-feeding the baby. Having parents involved closely ...

General Appearance of Newborns In delivery room scenes on TV and in the movies, the mother-to-be, often a famous actress in full makeup and with every hair in place, "delivers" a baby after a few token grunts and groans. Seconds later, the doctor presents the glowing parents with a picture-perfect, neatly combed and scrubbed, cooing several-month-old infant. Contrast that picture with how a baby really looks just after emerging from the womb: bluish, covered with blood and cream-cheesy glop, and looking as though the little one has just been in a fist-fight. The fact that your newborn doesn't resemble one of those Hollywood "stand-ins" shouldn't come as a great surprise. Remember that the fetus develops while immersed in fluid, folded up in an increasingly cramped space inside the uterus. The whole process usually culminates with the baby being pushed ...

It is already known that babies born prematurely before 37 weeks of pregnancy may have a higher risk of immediate or longer-term health problems, and the earlier a baby is born, the higher the risk. Babies born moderately prematurely or at early term were more likely to have been re-admitted to hospital in the first few months of life than babies born at 39-41 weeks. Babies born moderately prematurely also had a higher risk of asthma symptoms than full-term babies. 6.0 times higher for children born at 23-31 weeks 3.0 times higher for children born at 32-33 weeks 1.9 times higher for children born at 34-36 weeks 1.4 times higher for children born at 37-38 weeks. 2.4 times higher for children born at 23-31 weeks 2.0 times higher for children born at 32-33 weeks 1.5 times higher for children born at 34-36 weeks 1.1 times higher for children born at 37-38 weeks. 2.3 times higher for children born at 23-31 weeks 2.8 times higher for children born at 32-33 weeks 1.5 times higher for children born at 34-36 weeks ...

U of U Health Care. U of U Health Care. Health Care Home / Health Information / Related Content /. For the first few months, breast milk or formula is all that's needed. As your baby grows, starting a variety of healthy foods at the proper time is important for proper growth and development. And, starting good eating habits at this early stage will help set healthy eating patterns for life. Don't give solid foods unless your baby's health care provider advises you to do so. Solid foods shouldn't be started for infants younger than age 4 months for the following reasons:. Breast milk or formula provides your baby all the nutrients that are needed to grow. As a general rule, solid foods don't help babies sleep through the night. The American Academy of Pediatrics AAP recommends that all infants, children, and adolescents take in enough vitamin D through supplements, formula, or cow's milk to prevent complications from deficiency of this vitamin.

The Tender Loving Care Foundation is a 501 c 3 not-for-profit organization that was started by parents of “graduates” of the Neonatal Intensive Care Units NICUs at the Cohen Children’s Hospital of New York, within the North Shore-Long Island Jewish Health System NSLIJHS. Its primary goal is to see that the NICUs, as well as the entire perinatal health care environment, evolve along family-centered care ideals. Members of the TLC Foundation are deeply committed advocates for future parents, who normally have no idea what to expect when informed that their new-born baby will need “critical care” or will need to be housed in a “NICU.”.

... Domestic Felicity. Family, marriage, womanhood, a simple life at home. Wednesday, August 25, 2010. In the hospital: questioning routine interventions for your newborn. If you give birth in a hospital, your newborn baby will be subject to various interventions and medical procedures, many of which are viewed by new parents with awe, as though they were instilled by an infallible authority and therefore are unquestionable. That's how the hospital staff will try to present it, too, since they are officially representing the health care system and are supposed to promote its guidelines. However, after doing a bit of research, you will often be surprised to find what stands behind the routine practices of hospitals. Let's take as an example the Hep B vaccine, which is routinely performed in all hospitals around here. Hepatitis B is a disease transmitted through blood or bodily fluids, and therefore can be passed from mother to child during birth. Many mothers are unaware carriers of the Hep B ...

What Makes a Breastfed Baby Gassy. Posted on. September 10, 2015. Leave a comment. It is important to identify which bottles are best before you can substitute breastfeeding for bottle feeding in an effort to prevent a gassy baby. This is more so for young babies who are in the first trimester after delivery. Newborn babies are sensitive and it is best that you care for them and take a keen interest in their behavioral changes. In the early stages of growth, babies are noted to be gassy and it is in this that many parents are raising concerns. A gassy baby is noted to be uncomfortable, fussy, and in other cases, they cramp as if they are in pain. Breastfeeding your baby is one of the most important stages of your baby’s growth. This is because it comes with several advantages as mother’s milk is nutritious with powerful antibodies that are responsible for fighting off diseases. It is therefore, recommended that mothers breastfeed their babies in the long-term over a given time duration. However, ...

... Premature Infant: Treating Underdeveloped Lungs. Premature Infant: Treating Underdeveloped Lungs Skip to the navigation Topic Overview Particularly when an infant is born before 36 weeks' gestation, the lungs are immature, and the body has limited muscle strength and energy for breathing. So the premature infant may not get enough oxygen. It is common at birth for a premature infant to need oxygen therapy, a ventilator, and/or medicine. Infants whose lungs have been quickly matured with corticosteroid treatment before birth have a lot fewer problems than those who are not treated. Infants with underdeveloped lungs often lack surfactant. When premature lungs are treated with surfactant after birth, the infant's blood oxygen levels usually improve within minutes. Surfactant treatment reduces the risk and the severity of respiratory distress syndrome RDS in premature infants. Related Information Premature Infant. Diseases and injuries of ...

Contact Us Careers Medical Professionals Research MyChart Login Giving Rady Children s Specialists of San Diego. Rady Children s Hospital Foundation. Pregnancy Baby. Premature infants, known as preemies, come into the world earlier than full-term babies. Prematurity occurs when a pregnancy lasts less than 37 weeks; full-term infants are born 37 to 42 weeks after the mother s last menstrual period LMP. Preemies have many special needs that make their care different from that of full-term infants, which is why they often begin their lives after delivery in a neonatal intensive care unit NICU. Breast milk is an excellent source of nutrition, but premature infants are too immature to feed directly from the breast or bottle until they re 32 to 34 weeks gestational age. Formula also may be given to babies whose mothers are not able to provide breast milk when donor breast milk is not available. Special fortifiers may be added to breast milk or to formula if breastfeeding isn t desired, ...

(1/48457) Increased insensible water loss in newborn infants nursed under radiant heaters.

Urine osmolality was studied in 38 babies nursed in conventional incubators or cots and 18 nursed under an overhead radiant heat shield. Among 50 babies receiving a similar fluid intake in the first 48 hours of life mean urinary osmolality was significantly higher in the radiant heater group. In babies weighing less than 1500 g a trend towards higher urinary osmolalities was recorded in those nursed under radiant heaters even though they had received amost double the fluid intake of the incubator group. Severe hypernatraemia occurred in four of the five babies weighing less than 1000 g who were nursed under radiant heaters but in none of the seven babies of similar birth weight nursed in incubators. These findings are consistent with previous observations of an increase in insensible water loss in babies nursed under radiant heaters and emphasise the importance of providing enough extra water for these infants and the need for close monitoring of their fluid balance. The latter may be done at the bedside by measuring urinary specific gravity with a hand refractometer.  (+info)

(2/48457) New perspectives on biliary atresia.

An investigation into the aetiology, diagnosis, and treatment of biliary atresia was carried out because the prognosis remains so poor.In an electron microscopical study no viral particles or viral inclusion bodies were seen, nor were any specific ultrastructural features observed. An animal experiment suggested that obstruction within the biliary tract of newborn rabbits could be produced by maternal intravenous injection of the bile acid lithocholic acid.A simple and atraumatic method of diagnosis was developed using(99) (m)Tc-labelled compounds which are excreted into bile. Two compounds, (99m)Tc-pyridoxylidene glutamate ((99m)Tc-PG) and (99m)Tc-dihydrothioctic acid ((99m)Tc-DHT) were first assessed in normal piglets and piglets with complete biliary obstruction. Intestinal imaging correlated with biliary tract patency, and the same correlation was found in jaundiced human adults, in whom the (99m)Tc-PG scan correctly determined biliary patency in 21 out of 24 cases. The (99m)Tc-PG scan compared well with liver biopsy and (131)I-Rose Bengal in the diagnosis of 11 infants with prolonged jaundice.A model of extrahepatic biliary atresia was developed in the newborn piglet so that different methods of bile drainage could be assessed. Priorities in biliary atresia lie in a better understanding of the aetiology and early diagnosis rather than in devising new bile drainage procedures.  (+info)

(3/48457) Perinatal nephropathies.

The purpose of this paper is to review the development of the mammalian kidney and to assess the influence that various perinatal manipulations may have on the developmental process either morphologically or functionally. Immature kidneys in general have less functional capacity than adult kidneys and a low rate of glomerular filtration, perhaps related to renal blood flow, which appears to limit the disposition of a fluid or solute load. Tubular reabsorption is also limited leading to the urinary loss of glucose, amino acids, bicarbonate and phosphate. Although the relatively low function of the immature kidney is a normal part of development, its capacity to respond under conditions of stress may be less adequate than in adults. An additional concern is that a variety of perinatal manipulations, such as the incidental or accidental ingestion of a chemical, may lead to varying degrees of altered morphogenesis or functional development of the kidney. Chemical induced renal anomalies may be of several types, but in typical teratology experiments hydronephrosis may be the most frequent observation. The functional consequences of these renal malformations may be lethal or inconsequential or while an animal may be able to survive and develop normally in the presence of a renal malformation, it is possible that a stressful situation would unmask a functional malformation which could compromise survival. Thus, some renal abnormalities may be subtle enough to go unnoticed without experimental tests. Without such tests it is impossible to evaluate the effect of functional alterations on successful adaptation.  (+info)

(4/48457) Hematopoietic stem-cell transplantation for the treatment of severe combined immunodeficiency.

BACKGROUND: Since 1968 it has been known that bone marrow transplantation can ameliorate severe combined immunodeficiency, but data on the long-term efficacy of this treatment are limited. We prospectively studied immunologic function in 89 consecutive infants with severe combined immunodeficiency who received hematopoietic stem-cell transplants at Duke University Medical Center between May 1982 and September 1998. METHODS: Serum immunoglobulin levels and lymphocyte phenotypes and function were assessed and genetic analyses performed according to standard methods. Bone marrow was depleted of T cells by agglutination with soybean lectin and by sheep-erythrocyte rosetting before transplantation. RESULTS: Seventy-seven of the infants received T-cell-depleted, HLA-haploidentical parental marrow, and 12 received HLA-identical marrow from a related donor; 3 of the recipients of haploidentical marrow also received placental-blood transplants from unrelated donors. Except for two patients who received placental blood, none of the recipients received chemotherapy before transplantation or prophylaxis against graft-versus-host disease. Of the 89 infants, 72 (81 percent) were still alive 3 months to 16.5 years after transplantation, including all of the 12 who received HLA-identical marrow, 60 of the 77 (78 percent) who were given haploidentical marrow, and 2 of the 3 (67 percent) who received both haploidentical marrow and placental blood. T-cell function became normal within two weeks after transplantation in the patients who received unfractionated HLA-identical marrow but usually not until three to four months after transplantation in those who received T-cell-depleted marrow. At the time of the most recent evaluation, all but 4 of the 72 survivors had normal T-cell function, and all the T cells in their blood were of donor origin. B-cell function remained abnormal in many of the recipients of haploidentical marrow. In 26 children (5 recipients of HLA-identical marrow and 21 recipients of haploidentical marrow) between 2 percent and 100 percent of B cells were of donor origin. Forty-five of the 72 children were receiving intravenous immune globulin. CONCLUSIONS: Transplantation of marrow from a related donor is a life-saving and life-sustaining treatment for patients with any type of severe combined immunodeficiency, even when there is no HLA-identical donor.  (+info)

(5/48457) Cocaine metabolite kinetics in the newborn.

The study goal was to determine the half-life elimination of cocaine and benzoylecgonine (BZE) in the newborn. Three 0.3-mL blood samples were collected during the first day of life. Urine was collected once daily. Cocaine and BZE concentrations were determined by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. An extraction method was developed for measuring low concentrations of cocaine and BZE in small (0.1 mL) blood samples. Cocaine had a half-life of 11.6 h in one subject. The half-life of BZE during the first day of life, based on blood data in 13 subjects, was 16 h (95% confidence interval [CI], 12.8 to 21.4 h). The half-life of BZE during the first week of life, based on urine data in 16 subjects, was 11.2 h (95% CI, 10.1 to 11.8 h). The novel extraction method for small blood sample volumes should be applicable to other basic drugs.  (+info)

(6/48457) Activation of alveolar macrophages in lung injury associated with experimental acute pancreatitis is mediated by the liver.

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate (1) whether alveolar macrophages are activated as a consequence of acute pancreatitis (AP), (2) the implication of inflammatory factors released by these macrophages in the process of neutrophil migration into the lungs observed in lung injury induced by AP, and (3) the role of the liver in the activation of alveolar macrophages. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: Acute lung injury is the extrapancreatic complication most frequently associated with death and complications in severe AP. Neutrophil infiltration into the lungs seems to be related to the release of systemic and local mediators. The liver and alveolar macrophages are sources of mediators that have been suggested to participate in the lung damage associated with AP. METHODS: Pancreatitis was induced in rats by intraductal administration of 5% sodium taurocholate. The inflammatory process in the lung and the activation of alveolar macrophages were investigated in animals with and without portocaval shunting 3 hours after AP induction. Alveolar macrophages were obtained by bronchoalveolar lavage. The generation of nitric oxide, leukotriene B4, tumor necrosis factor-alpha, and MIP-2 by alveolar macrophages and the chemotactic activity of supernatants of cultured macrophages were evaluated. RESULTS: Pancreatitis was associated with increased infiltration of neutrophils into the lungs 3 hours after induction. This effect was prevented by the portocaval shunt. Alveolar macrophages obtained after induction of pancreatitis generated increased levels of nitric oxide, tumor necrosis factor-alpha, and MIP-2, but not leukotriene B4. In addition, supernatants of these macrophages exhibited a chemotactic activity for neutrophils when instilled into the lungs of unmanipulated animals. All these effects were abolished when portocaval shunting was carried out before induction of pancreatitis. CONCLUSION: Lung damage induced by experimental AP is associated with alveolar macrophage activation. The liver mediates the alveolar macrophage activation in this experimental model.  (+info)

(7/48457) Exposure to nitrogen dioxide and the occurrence of bronchial obstruction in children below 2 years.

BACKGROUND: The objective of the investigation was to test the hypothesis that exposure to nitrogen dioxide (NO2) has a causal influence on the occurrence of bronchial obstruction in children below 2 years of age. METHODS: A nested case-control study with 153 one-to-one matched pairs was conducted within a cohort of 3754 children born in Oslo in 1992/93. Cases were children who developed > or = 2 episodes of bronchial obstruction or one episode lasting >4 weeks. Controls were matched for date of birth. Exposure measurements were performed in the same 14-day period within matched pairs. The NO2 exposure was measured with personal samplers carried close to each child and by stationary samplers outdoors and indoors. RESULTS: Few children (4.6%) were exposed to levels of NO2 > or = 30 microg/m3 (average concentration during a 14-day period). In the 153 matched pairs, the mean level of NO2 was 15.65 microg/m3 (+/-0.60, SE) among cases and 15.37 (+/-0.54) among controls (paired t = 0.38, P = 0.71). CONCLUSIONS: The results suggest that NO2 exposure at levels observed in this study has no detectable effect on the risk of developing bronchial obstruction in children below 2 years of age.  (+info)

(8/48457) A method for calculating age-weighted death proportions for comparison purposes.

OBJECTIVE: To introduce a method for calculating age-weighted death proportions (wDP) for comparison purposes. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A methodological study using secondary data from the municipality of Sao Paulo, Brazil (1980-1994) was carried out. First, deaths are weighted in terms of years of potential life lost before the age of 100 years. Then, in order to eliminate distortion of comparisons among proportions of years of potential life lost before the age of 100 years (pYPLL-100), the denominator is set to that of a standard age distribution of deaths for all causes. Conventional death proportions (DP), pYPLL-100, and wDP were calculated. RESULTS: Populations in which deaths from a particular cause occur at older ages exhibit lower wDP than those in which deaths occur at younger ages. The sum of all cause-specific wDP equals one only when the test population has exactly the same age distribution of deaths for all causes as that of the standard population. CONCLUSION: Age-weighted death proportions improve the information given by conventional DP, and are strongly recommended for comparison purposes.  (+info)

How can I obtain the medical records regarding Birthing and Immunizations?


  • I need to request full medical records regarding my health and physical condition as an infant (newborn). Also, I need to get a hold of my immunization records. What actions do I need to take in order to accomplish this?
  • You can contact the person who was your physician at that time. Most of them won't give you the records but will tell you to have your current doctor call and ask for them.


How do you raise a baby to be friendly?


  • How do you raise an infant (newborn) to becoming a friendly little one year old. Ive seen babies (around 1yr) who hug anybody who says hi to them, or at least smile. and Ive seen babies (also around 1) who doesnt want anyone to touch them, or talk to them and cries if done so. Why is this? and How can you prevent that? Just wondering.
  • your child needs............BARNEY AND FRIENDS!!!!


Where can I find yoga poses to do with my baby?


  • I don't want classes. I just want ideas for a basic 15 minute routine I can do with my infant/newborn. I know I need to wait six weeks or until my dr. says its ok. Anyway, I am a strong believer in yoga, and I was wondering if anyone could give me a link to some poses that include my baby. When she gets a little older I will teach her what I know. I have been practicing yoga for three years now, but none of what I know includes poses for both mother and baby. Thanks.
  • I just saw a DVD at Target on Mommy/Baby yoga. It was made by the Parents Brand. http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_ss_b?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=mom+and+baby+yoga&x=0&y=0 All things mom and baby yoga from Amazon The itsy bitsy yoga looks interesting!


How come some adoption agencies charge a fortune and some are so much cheaper?


  • I heard some agencies charge around $10,000 to adopt a child and some charge up to $20,000 or higher. Is it because some are domestic (within US/American children) and some are out of the country? We want an American baby, anywhere between infant/newborn up to no older than 6 months...and would like to spend no more than $10,000. where should we be looking?
  • Adoption agencies can charge whatever people are willing to pay. It is currently an unregulated industry. I would highly suggest contacting your local foster care adoptions department.


How to become a baby nurse?


  • For starters when I say baby nurse I mean the kind that is an experienced, trained infant/newborn specialist who comes into someone's home in the first weeks of their infants life to assist the mom and dad with the day-to-day care of their new baby. Questions: What are the requirements to become a baby nurse? Are there specific colleges I should go to, to get the education needed to become a baby nurse? Also about how much does a baby nurse make? Thanks for your help! Any help at all would help, Thanks!
  • I am not sure where you live, but where I live we don't have this type of service. I have never heard of a "baby nurse" in this respect. Generally speaking, new parents don't need a nurse to help care for their newborn baby. In some cases, if the newborn has medical concerns, than a visiting home nurse will come and assist with such things as using a feeding tube or changing catheters. Otherwise, new parents who want help with their new baby usually ask a grandma or a sister to come and help out. The term "baby nurse" in our area refers to the nurse who works on the Labor and Delivery floor and helps care for both new moms and newborns while they are in the hospital. If you want to become any type of nurse, you must first start out in a basic nursing course. A community college is often a good place to get your basic nurses training. It is often a first step for prospective nursing students to take a nursing assistant or nurses aid course. Not everyone goes this route, though, and some go right into the training necessary to become a Registered Nurse (RN). If you are still a high school student, you can go to your counselor's office and ask for resource material on how to become a nurse. Many colleges and universities offer nursing programs. As far as income, this is going to vary depending on what type of nursing degree you have as well as what type of agency you work with. If you have already graduated high school or have your GED, than you can contact your local colleges and universities to find out which ones offer nursing programs. You can visit each one and decide which program is best for you. There are many paths to becomming a nurse and you'll need to do some research to find out what programs are available and which leads you to your goal. If you know someone who does the type of work you want to do, it would be helpful to contact them and find out how they went about getting the appropriate training to do that type of work.


Which Diapers have you found best for boys?


  • I have 2 girls and for both I used Luvs, Which worked great. I recently just had a boy and we tried the Luvs with him, and he peed through them almost everytime. My sister told me she also tried Luvs with her son and had the same problem. Well, I went out and bought pamper swaddlers...and sure enough, he peed out of them too. Does this depend on the child or could it have something to do with sex of the baby. Which diapers do you use for your infant/newborn Son?
  • Totally Huggies! I used to call Pampers... Dampers. BUT the reason I like Huggies is because of the stretchy fasteners and I believe that Pampers have gotten those since I stopped using diapers. Since you said you tried them, I would stick with Huggies because I never had any trouble with them. Also, they have something called a "Diaper Doubler" that you can put in your baby's diaper and it helps, but with a newborn it may just make it a bit bulky. Look on the top shelf of your diaper section, most stores have a generic brand, they're especially helpful when they start sleeping through the night.


Will it hurt my baby to drink newborn and infant formula?


  • We have been feeding my 2 week old newborn enfamil. We have WIC and I noticed its infant formula not newborn but we bought 3 cases of the premade newborn formula (we use them on the go) will it be bad to feed him newborn AND infant? And will we notice a difference if he starts eating infant formula?


What do you use to wash newborn/infant clothing and anything else that they use?


  • When washing your newborn/infants clothing, bedding, blankets, and anything else that would go into the washing machine what kind of detergent did you use? Did you use just regular detergent, did you use baby detergent, or did you use like "free" detergent that has no dyes or scents in it? Also did you use softener or any other kind of things that you add to the laundry? Thanks for any advice that you can give me.
  • I used free detergents, vinegar for cleaning purposes, and that's about it.
