A membrane on the vitreal surface of the retina resulting from the proliferation of one or more of three retinal elements: (1) fibrous astrocytes; (2) fibrocytes; and (3) retinal pigment epithelial cells. Localized epiretinal membranes may occur at the posterior pole of the eye without clinical signs or may cause marked loss of vision as a result of covering, distorting, or detaching the fovea centralis. Epiretinal membranes may cause vascular leakage and secondary retinal edema. In younger individuals some membranes appear to be developmental in origin and occur in otherwise normal eyes. The majority occur in association with retinal holes, ocular concussions, retinal inflammation, or after ocular surgery. (Newell, Ophthalmology: Principles and Concepts, 7th ed, p291)

Disorders related or resulting from abuse or mis-use of opioids.
A derivative of the opioid alkaloid THEBAINE that is a more potent and longer lasting analgesic than MORPHINE. It appears to act as a partial agonist at mu and kappa opioid receptors and as an antagonist at delta receptors. The lack of delta-agonist activity has been suggested to account for the observation that buprenorphine tolerance may not develop with chronic use.

Energy intake, not energy output, is a determinant of body size in infants. (1/161)

BACKGROUND: It has been proposed that the primary determinants of body weight at 1 y of age are genetic background, as represented by parental obesity, and low total energy expenditure. OBJECTIVE: The objective was to determine the relative contributions of genetic background and energy intake and expenditure as determinants of body weight at 1 y of age. DESIGN: Forty infants of obese and 38 infants of lean mothers, half boys and half girls, were assessed at 3 mo of age for 10 risk factors for obesity: sex, risk group (obese or nonobese mothers), maternal and paternal body mass index, body weight, feeding mode (breast, bottle, or both), 3-d energy intake, nutritive sucking behavior during a test meal, total energy expenditure, sleeping energy expenditure, and interactions among them. RESULTS: The only difference between risk groups at baseline was that the high-risk group sucked more vigorously during the test meal. Four measures accounted for 62% of the variability in weight at 12 mo: 3-mo weight (41%, P = 0.0001), nutritive sucking behavior (9%, P = 0.0002), 3-d food intake (8%, P = 0.0002), and male sex (3%, P = 0.05). Food intake and sucking behavior at 3 mo accounted for similar amounts of variability in weight-for-length, body fat, fat-free mass, and skinfold thickness at 12 mo. Contrary to expectations, neither total nor sleeping energy expenditure at 3 mo nor maternal obesity contributed to measures of body size at 12 mo. CONCLUSIONS: Energy intake contributes significantly to measures of body weight and composition at 1 y of age; parental obesity and energy expenditure do not.  (+info)

Milk intake of suckling kittens remains relatively constant from one to four weeks of age. (2/161)

The daily milk intake of 14 domestic short-haired kittens (Felis catus) from five litters was estimated during wk 1-4 postpartum using the isotope dilution technique. Kittens received a single intraperitoneal injection of tritiated water, and blood samples were obtained from the jugular vein for radioactivity measurements at 2 and 96 h after injection. One kitten in each litter was used as a control to allow calculation of recycling of tritiated water. The mean (+/- SEM) biological half-life of tritiated water in the kittens increased from 2.4 +/- 0.1 d in wk 1 to 4.9 +/- 0.2 d in wk 4 postpartum. Recycling of tritiated water accounted for (mean +/- SEM) 5.9 +/- 0.8, 12.0 +/- 0.5, 7.7 +/- 1.3 and 10.0 +/- 1.3% of the kittens' daily water intake during postnatal wk 1-4, respectively. Daily milk intake of the kittens during wk 1-4 postpartum was 47.3 +/- 0.8, 47.4 +/- 1.5, 48.7 +/- 1.6 and 43.7 +/- 2.0 g, respectively. There was no effect of gender on milk intake. The daily metabolizable energy requirement of suckling kittens, estimated by multiple regression analysis, was 356 kJ/kg(0.75), whereas the metabolizable energy required per gram of gain was estimated to be 7. 8 kJ/d. The milk intake of suckling kittens remained relatively constant throughout the first 4 wk of lactation, and during this period, they seemed to have a lower energy requirement for maintenance.  (+info)

Role of mother-young interactions in the survival of offspring in domestic mammals. (3/161)

The defining characteristic of mammals is that females nurse and care for their young; without this, the neonate has no chance to survive. Studies on wild and domestic species show that the neonatal period is the most critical step in the lifetime of a mammal. This review compares three well-studied species (the rabbit, pig and sheep) that differ in their parental strategies and in the problems that neonates have to overcome. As a general trend, mother-young interactions vary according to the maturity of the newborn, and the size of the litter. Neonatal survival relies to a great extent on an environment that is ecologically appropriate for the developmental stage of the neonate, and on optimum interactions with the mother. Adaptive maternal care supposes that the mother provides the basic needs of the neonate: warmth (in pigs and rabbits) or shelter, food, water and immunological protection (via colostrum) and, in some instances, protection from predators and other conspecifics. A major risk facing all neonates, other than the birth process itself, is inadequate colostrum intake owing to delayed suckling or competition with siblings, which leads to starvation, hypothermia or even crushing, as has been observed in pigs.  (+info)

Requirement for the lpA1 lysophosphatidic acid receptor gene in normal suckling behavior. (4/161)

Although extracellular application of lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) has been extensively documented to produce a variety of cellular responses through a family of specific G protein-coupled receptors, the in vivo organismal role of LPA signaling remains largely unknown. The first identified LPA receptor gene, lp(A1)/vzg-1/edg-2, was previously shown to have remarkably enriched embryonic expression in the cerebral cortex and dorsal olfactory bulb and postnatal expression in myelinating glia including Schwann cells. Here, we show that targeted deletion of lp(A1) results in approximately 50% neonatal lethality, impaired suckling in neonatal pups, and loss of LPA responsivity in embryonic cerebral cortical neuroblasts with survivors showing reduced size, craniofacial dysmorphism, and increased apoptosis in sciatic nerve Schwann cells. The suckling defect was responsible for the death among lp(A1)((-/-)) neonates and the stunted growth of survivors. Impaired suckling behavior was attributable to defective olfaction, which is likely related to developmental abnormalities in olfactory bulb and/or cerebral cortex. Our results provide evidence that endogenous lysophospholipid signaling requires an lp receptor gene and indicate that LPA signaling through the LP(A1) receptor is required for normal development of an inborn, neonatal behavior.  (+info)

Belly-nosing in early-weaned piglets is not influenced by diet quality or the presence of milk in the diet. (5/161)

Early weaning of piglets can lead to an increase in belly-nosing and other oral-nasal behavior (nosing, chewing, or sucking other piglets), but the causative factors involved in these behavior patterns are largely unknown. Because these behavior patterns resemble massaging the udder and sucking, they may be associated with feeding. The objectives of this study were to determine any effect of diet quality or the presence of milk in the diet on belly-nosing behavior of piglets weaned at 14 to 18 d. During the first 2 wk after weaning, piglets were fed diets differing in quality and inclusion of milk products. Six replicates of eight piglets per replicate, blocked by initial body weight, (n = 192) were offered one of four dietary treatments: HQM: high quality, high in milk products; HQ: high quality, no milk products; PQ: poor quality, no milk products; HQ+MR: high quality, no milk products (as HQ) sprayed with milk replacer five times daily. Thereafter, the piglets were fed a standard nursery diet. Feed intake was measured daily for wk 1 and again at the end of wk 2. Behavior was recorded every 5 min during two 4-h periods on d 2 to 7, 10, 14, 17 and 21 after weaning. Dietary treatment influenced ADFI and ADG during wk 1. Average daily feed intake (P < 0.05) and ADG (P < 0.05) of piglets on PQ were less than those of piglets on the other treatments. During wk 2, ADFI (P > 0.10) and ADG (P > 0.10) were the same across all treatments. Overall, ADFI was not influenced by the inclusion of milk products in the diet or the addition of milk replacer (P > 0.10); however, ADG was. Piglets on HQM had higher ADG than those on HQ during wk 2 (P < 0.05) and 3 after weaning (P < 0.05). However, milk replacer did not influence ADG (P > 0.10). Although the dietary treatments did affect ADFI and ADG, there were no effects on any behavior pattern recorded, including time spent at the feeder (P > 0.10). Lower weight-for-age piglets performed more oral-nasal behavior, in total, than higher weight-for-age piglets (P < 0.03). Neither feeding a poor-quality diet nor the presence of milk in the diet had an effect on belly-nosing or other oral-nasal behavior patterns during the first 3 wk after weaning. Belly-nosing does not seem to be associated with feeding.  (+info)

Histological study of masseter muscle in a mouse muscular dystrophy model (mdx mouse). (6/161)

Histological changes in the masseter muscle were observed over time in mdx mice, a muscular dystrophy model. It was found that marked necrosis occurs about the time of weaning at around 4 weeks of age; then the tissue actively regenerates at 8 weeks and stabilizes as regenerated muscle with centronuclei at 15 weeks old. This study examined the centronucleus in regenerated muscle. The process from necrosis to regeneration in muscle fibers occurs a little later in the masseter muscle than in other limbic muscles. Regenerated muscles observed around 15 weeks after birth showed a moth-eaten appearance. Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM) observation of transverse sections of muscle fibers revealed that myofibrils surrounded lost regions in the area showing a moth-eaten appearance. Thus, some defensive mechanism may affect the ability of muscle fibers to maintain a function close to normal in mdx mice even though the muscle fibers develop muscular dystrophy. The function of the masseter muscle drastically changes from sucking to mastication behavior at around 4 weeks, and this was considered to influence the morphological changes in the muscle tissue. The moth-eaten appearance seen at 15 weeks may represent an appropriate myofibril reconstruction preventing invasion of the lost regions.  (+info)

Induction and inhibition of implantation in lactating rats. (7/161)

The interrelationship between prolactin and LH in the maintenance of pregnancy during lactation was studied. The reduction of suckled young from eight to two or less, as late as on the morning of Day 4 of pregnancy, resulted in normal implantation. Reintroduction of eight young on Day 4 to lactating pregnant rats deprived of their litters on Day 1 resulted in an inhibition of implantation, but reintroduction on Days 5 or 6 did not inhibit implantation. If oestrogen, HCG or PMSG was given on Day 4 of pregnancy, implantation was induced at the normal time in rats suckling large litters. When LH antiserum was given on the morning of Day 4 or Day 8 to pregnant rats suckling two young each, it blocked implantation and postimplantation survival of blasto-cysts, respectively. When the number of suckling young was increased from two to eight on Day 6, however, LH antiserum blocked pregnancy only to the extent of 70%. Prolactin administered during the preimplantation phase inhibited implantation in pregnant rats suckling a minimum number of young, but had no effect when given during the postimplantation phase. Progesterone failed to block implantation. Prolactin had no inhibitory effect on implantation in the absence of the suckling stimulus or in non-lactating pregnant rats. The inhibition of implantation by prolactin in rats suckling two young could be effectively reversed by the administration of oestrogen, PMSG or HCG on Day 4 of pregnancy.  (+info)

Initial management of breastfeeding. (8/161)

Breast milk is widely accepted as the ideal source of nutrition for infants. In order to ensure success in breastfeeding, it is important that it be initiated as early as possible during the neonatal period. This is facilitated by skin-to-skin contact between the mother and infant immediately following birth. When possible, the infant should be allowed to root and latch on spontaneously within the first hour of life. Many common nursery routines such as weighing the infant, administration of vitamin K and application of ocular antibiotics can be safely delayed until after the initial breastfeeding. Postpartum care practices that improve breastfeeding rates include rooming-in, anticipatory guidance about breastfeeding problems and the avoidance of formula supplementation and pacifiers.  (+info)

Based on our sample of 1099 preschool children, non-nutritive sucking activity rather than the type of feeding in the first months of life seems the main risk factor for development of altered occlusion. Previous reports have provided conflicting results showing some effect8,9 or no effect of breast feeding on altered occlusion.10 It is possible that the different results are related to the differences in the prevalence of non-nutritive sucking activity in the studied populations.. Our data support an aetiological role of non-nutritive sucking on open bite, whereas we did not find the type of feeding to be a risk factor. Previous publications agree with this relation.5-7. In posterior cross-bite malocclusion, children with non-nutritive sucking activity and children who were bottle fed had a twofold risk of posterior cross-bite. Others authors have addressed the relation between non-nutritive sucking activity and posterior cross-bite.6,7 Karjalainen and colleagues9 studied the relation between ...

For example, she has a premenstrual headache. She doesnt immediately think, Oh, this is due to the long accumulation of congesting effects of my diet. Instead, she takes a nap, or an aspirin, gets relief, and goes on her way. If another person notices a little extra inflammation in a chronic skin condition that naturally fluctuates anyway, he doesnt immediately think that his food caused this, instead he puts some soothing balm on it, or takes an anti-inflammatory, which reduces the discomfort enough that he loses interest in exploring it further. The use of non-nutritive ingestive behaviors is evolved and hence the natural approach to discomfort: We take something for it because our species evolved to use non-nutritive ingestion as an integral part of dietary adaptation. People start looking deeper only when the non-nutritive ingestive behaviors no longer control the discomfort adequately. So small things so gradually turn into large things that we often dont figure things out until they ...
Preterm infants are at risk to develop oral feeding difficulties because of their immature cardiorespiratory function, central nervous system, and oral musculature. In addition, primary and supervising caretakers commonly approach these difficulties with differing expectations and orders for advancing feedings. We developed a set of feeding guidelines for bottle and breast feeding based on a review of the literature, and experience from RNs and occupational therapists where data was inconclusive. We hypothesized that an infant-driven, consistent, standardized approach to oral feedings would result in a shorter time to full oral feeding. We designed a prospective cohort study beginning July 1, 2004 using randomized historical controls from July 1, 2002 to June 30, 2003. All preterm infants (≤ 37 weeks gestation at birth) hospitalized in our NICU, except those transferred to another facility before achieving full oral feeding, were evaluated. Infants were started on the guidelines once they were ...
Bengals love water; they may play in their water bowls, jump in the shower with their owners and likely will prefer to drink running water (from a faucet or fountain). Foundation Bengals sometimes eliminate in their water bowls or other locations they associate with water (a sink or bathtub). This behavior can be modified by changing the location of a water bowl or providing water in a different manner (like a cat fountain or bubbler). This love of water might also manifest in knocking over water glasses, playing in the toilet or in a fish tank, and other behaviors that are problematic for owners ...

Is your kitty, or even your pup, a water dumper? Especially cats often like to dig at their water bowls, one reason being that this mimics the motions they make as kittens in order to stimulate their mama cats milk production. If your kitty is one of those who turns a water station into an ocean, there are ways to help prevent this. First, you can simply try using heavier bowls. Stainless steel bowls with weighted and often skid-proof bottoms might be one solution, for example. Sometimes even simply a thick, heavy ceramic or glass bowl that does not easily give in to a cats slapping paws will do the trick. You can even try getting a skid-proof mat, on which you can place a skid-proof water bowl to help even further reduce the chance of spillage onto the floor. There are also bowls on the market that are meant to help prevent spillage from digging, such as bowls situated in a stand with grates, so that spplashed water can drain into a basin beneath the bowls rather than onto the floor. If all ...

I feel I have so much more to share but will leave my last comments on breastfeeding. If you would like to excusively nurse you will find many challenges to that in the NICU with supplemental bottle feedings to help conserve calories and possibly human fortified added to your milk to increase babys calories. The part no one shares is that although these steps may be medically necessary they may lead your babyto view the breast as non-nutritive and come to prefer the bottle for full feeds. It is diffcult to move toward full breast feeds when a baby is extra full from fortified added to your milk. It increases the length a baby is willing to go between feeds and will doesnt help to give your babythe drive at the next breastfeed once your baby has the stamina to really start working on nursing. My advice is just stick with it! It took us approx 4 months to get to full feeds from the breast. It may sometimes feel like you will never get there, but you will! Even a baby that becomes bottle ...

INTRODUCTION. Presentation explores 1) defining Non-Speech Oral Motor Exercises, 2) defining Oral Placement Therapy, 3) understanding the difference between NSOME and OPT, 4) clinical implications for Evidenced Based Practice.. Two widely used models of articulation therapy include the traditional and phonological models (Bowen, 2005). While studies suggest that the phonological model may prove more positive results than the traditional model (Klein, 1996), Van Ripers Phonetic Placement Approach may be more useful for individuals who are not be able to achieve placement cues (Van Riper, 1978). Many therapists supplement phonological and traditional models with oral motor activities to help achieve placement cues, especially for those individuals with muscle-based and motor-based diagnoses (Marshalla, 2007). Over the past decade, there has been an ongoing debate, through secondary research studies between those who do not support the use of Non-Speech Oral Motor Exercises (NSOME) and those who ...
I had just come home from grocery shopping and took him out to potty, and then when we came back in. He was sniffing around when he started to walk oddly. He was unsteady, gripping at the floor with his toes as if he thought he would slide off of it. In the past, this scrabbling sort of walk has been the first sign of the seizure starting. His back was hunched, and his muscles quivered. I went to him as he swayed there and gently touched his side, trying to keep him from moving around too much. I worry so that he will bump into something and hurt himself. Since I wasnt really restraining him (as thats one of the last things you are supposed to do when someone is seizing), he managed to make his way to the water bowl and took a drink. I nudged him away, worried he might choke. However, he seemed far less worried about the situation than I was and he swallowed the water fine. I pet him gently, telling him he was a good boy. After a few minutes, his muscles stopped shaking and his posture ...

If they struggle with the collar at first, do not panic and take it off. Give them a chance to adjust. You can use your pets own collar to help keep it on. Also make sure they can get to their food and water bowl with it on. At least a week post-surgery, your pet will likely be ready to go without the e-collar. When it is first taken off, be sure to have time to spend with your pet to make sure he/she doesnt lick excessively or chew at the incision ...

OBJECTIVE. This study compared bottle-feeding behaviors in preterm infants with and without bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) during the initial hospitalization.. METHOD. Individual sucking characteristics and feeding transitional rates were compared in 41 preterm infants (22 boys, 19 girls) with BPD and 99 infants (44 boys, 55 girls) without BPD. Observations of the first bottle feeding and observations of the last feeding before discharge were obtained from medical records of all infants retrospectively.. RESULTS. On discharge, infants with BPD, unlike those without BPD, continued to have an immature sucking pattern and required longer hospital stays to attain full oral feeding (p , .001). No differences were found between the BPD and non-BPD groups in time needed for feeding and use of oral support.. CONCLUSION. These results suggest that feeding transitional rate, rather than sucking pattern, may be a better discharge indicator for infants with BPD. ...

Helpful, trusted answers from doctors: Dr. Sethi on thumb sucking habit psychological fear: Usually a symptom of anxiety, which can be generalized anxiety or pcs.
The main limitation of our review is the unavoidable grouping of exposure and outcome variables. We could not evaluate different types or formulations of nonnutritive sweeteners because most studies did not report this information, and we could not assess dose effects owing to the limited number of RCTs and the semi-quantitative nature of the reporting of nonnutritive sweetener intake in cohort studies. In addition, some cardiometabolic outcomes could not be evaluated individually becuse of the way they were combined and reported in the original studies (e.g., overweight and obesity, cardiovascular events). Finally, meta-analysis was not always possible because of reporting differences and the paucity of eligible studies.. The individual studies included in our review also have limitations. Most RCTs were at high risk of bias, and most cohort studies achieved only moderate quality scores. In the cohort studies, the ascertainment of exposure to nonnutritive sweeteners by self-report was ...
Sucking is a natural reflex that relaxes and comforts babies and toddlers. Children usually cease thumb sucking when the permanent front teeth are ready to erupt. Typically, children stop between the ages of 2 and 4 years. Thumb sucking that persists beyond the eruption of primary teeth can cause improper growth of the mouth and misalignment of the teeth. If you notice prolonged and/or vigorous thumb sucking behavior in your child, talk to your dentist.. One solution to thumb sucking is an appliance called a fixed palatal crib. This appliance is put on the childs upper teeth by an orthodontist. Its placed behind on the upper teeth on the roof of the mouth. The crib consists of semicircular stainless steel wires that are fastened to molars using steel bands. The stainless steel wires fit behind the childs upper front teeth, and they are barely visible. The crib usually stops the habit of thumb sucking within the first day of use.. Back to the top. ...
Pacifiers consists of a latex or silicone nipple with a firm plastic shield and handle. Latex pacifiers are softer or more flexible but wear out faster than silicone. Silicone pacifiers are firmer, hold their shapes longer, and are easier to clean. The nipple should be knotted around the back of the handle and the shield and handle should be one piece. This prevents the nipple from falling off or the plastic from breaking in two and posing a choking hazard. The shield should be at least 1.5 inches (6 cm) across so that it will not fit in the babys mouth. The shield should have air holes or vents to prevent saliva from collecting behind it and causing an irritation or rash. Large circular shields can obstruct an intensely sucking babys nasal passages. Pacifiers should have easy-to-hold handles, be dishwasher-safe, and easy to clean. Pacifiers come in several sizes designed for premature infants, newborns, babies younger than six months, and children older than six months. Pacifier nipples come ...

Preterm infants are at high risk for feeding issues. Feeding difficulties lead to prolonged hospitalization, increase medical complications and raise parental anxiety. The transition from tube feeding to oral feeding is an especially important step in a preterm infants early life. Currently, there is limited evidence to guide this transition. There are two commonly used schedules for transitioning preterm infants to oral feeding: an every 6 hour schedule and an every 3 hour schedule. However, there is currently no evidence to guide providers in their choice of oral feeding schedule.. The primary objective of this study is to explore whether an every 6 (q6) hour oral feeding schedule will improve time to full oral feedings as compared to an every 3 (q3) hour oral feeding schedule. The secondary objectives are to test whether every 6 hour feeding allows for improved medical stability and oral-motor coordination as compared to the other commonly used q3 hour schedule. Each infant will be randomly ...
Although the evidence is limited, nonnutritive sweeteners (NNS) have a potential role to play in facilitating reduction of added sugar intake, as long as they do not cause a compensatory increase in energy intake.
Nonnutritive sweeteners have been used to lower the energy density of foods with the intention of affecting weight loss or weight maintenance. However, some epidemiological and animal evidence indicates an association between weight gain or insulin resistance and artificial sweetener consumption. In …

Ive heard one or two ideas that I DO NOT recommend. If youve heard these ideas do not use them. Try one of the above instead. I read about a mama who snipped the edge of the pacifier off gradually (like a snip a night) for a week until there was no suck left and it did wean her daughter but its not a good idea. Her pediatrician actually told her to do this and Im a little astounded at that fact. A broken pacifier increases the chances that your baby will bite some off or that some will break off and she could choke. This is a super dangerous idea. Theres that nail biting liquid you can buy for older kids that tastes icky -- do not try painting the pacifier with this. It can break down the pacifier resulting in choking and also there are chemicals in that liquid that your baby should not have. Its fine to wean your baby off a pacifier but just make sure you do it safely. ...
Offer rewards. Make a sticker chart that tracks each nap, day, or night where your toddler doesnt have to use his pacifier. When your child decides on his own not to use a binky at nap time, reward him with extra hugs and praise.. - Substitute. Have your child trade his pacifier to you in exchange for a special toy. Offer a new stuffed animal for naptime or bedtime, and explain that the animal is a special big kid animal.. - Go slowly. Your child will eventually get there, but it may take some time. Start by encouraging her not to use her pacifier during a nap. Work up to more time, such as a full day, giving the pacifier only at night. While nighttime will be the most difficult transition, by going slowly you can ease the process of weaning your toddler from the pacifier.. - Pick the time to wean with care. If you have just moved, or if your child is in daycare or preschool for the first time, or if you have just had another baby, it may not be the best time to wean your toddler from the ...

For many years I didnt use a pacifier. My grandmother had been completely against them along with the other conveniences that theyve come up with for babies…walkers, swings, whatever else. My mother pretty much followed in her footsteps and I, my mothers. All of our children caught whooping cough when our fifth baby was only 4 months old. It was a very scary time. We learned a lot and one thing we actually found useful was a pacifier. In fact, it became a necessity. As soon as she would begin waking up she would be thrown into a fit of coughing. If we could quickly get her sucking then she would be fine. We were so concerned with just keeping her alive that the task of breaking the habit of the pacifier seemed menial. In the end it was nothing we had to concern ourselves with anyhow. At 6 months she realized exactly what a pacifier was for and she was NOT to be pacified! She wanted the real thing…food. So Ive since relaxed a tad on this issue. I have used it a few times for Levi already ...

In order to create the most natural habitat for your ig, you may want to use either astroturf or Repti carpet for the floor of the cage. Both can be found at most pet stores. I recommend PetsMart or Petco. You should put one or two sticks in the cage for climbing and basking. If you get sticks from the back yard or outside somewhere make sure you soak them in a bleach sollution for 24 hours (one part bleach, two parts water). Let them dry completly before placing them in the cage. Place two water bowls in the cage - one for drinking, and a larger one for soaking. This is not required, although it may make things simpler for you. Make sure you change water bowls daily. You will also need a food dish that is somewhat large yet shallow so your iguana can reach the food easily. You dont want too much clutter on the floor of the cage as this may stress the iguana. You want the ig to have plenty of room to walk around. You also may want to put some vines or plants in the cage (preferably plastic), ...
This suckling behaviour is thought to be re-oriented to become a useful pacifying gesture. A human analogy is to consider young children thumb-sucking to self-soothe -- imagine if they licked our faces instead when they felt a bit unsure or stressed! Dogs have been seen to use licking as a type of appeasement behaviour - often interpreted by people as intended to reduce tension or apologise. This kind of pacifying lick can be self directed in the absence of other dogs or people, and in extreme cases, can even be a self-mutilation health issue. ...

My only recommendation for pacifier use is that parents wait at least three weeks before introducing them or any other artificial teat (unless supplementation with a bottle is indicated, as directed by a lactation consultant). I recommend this for several reasons. For one, I want parents to learn how to read their babies cues. Are they hungry, or do they just need to suck on something? This learning tends to take several weeks as parents adjust to having a new baby around. Secondly, the first two weeks after birth is critical in establishing mothers milk supply for the long term. If the delicate dance of supply and demand is interrupted by early pacifier use, moms supply could suffer. Lastly, while true nipple confusion is rare, I do like to see babies demonstrate that they have gotten the hang of breastfeeding (generally, they get back to their birth weight in two or three weeks) before putting anything else in their mouths. This is especially true for babies who for whatever reason were ...

by Emily Boge, RDH, BS, MPAc Binkie, Paci, Cork, Plug, Soothie, Dummy - the pacifier has had many nicknames and has been used by parents all around the world since the 1600s.
