Was it Urine Pregnancy Test or Blood Test? While urine pregnancy tests can accurately detect the presence of hCG, they are qualitative - merely giving a negative or positive result. Most urine tests need a higher level of hCG than a blood test to show a positive result and so may be slower to show a positive result.

Are preterm babies slow in activities? If yes at how many months should start showing activities. I'm on Ebf.
  • Best Answer
The majority of premature babies have normal physical and motor development. Prematurely born children do tend to be shorter and lighter than full-term peers. If these babies were very sick, it can sometimes affect their growth up until at least 12 years old. But others catch up during the preschool and school years. So, no worries

What can I apply on the baby of 10 months old with heat rashes all over his body?
Dr. Dara Abiodun

Medical Doctor

You need to be sure they are heat rashes. If yes just keep yourself and baby cool. Cool bath and air, they will soon clear....You can use the heat rash powder though not really recommended especially as they actually can block the sweat ducts. Key issue is to keep yourself and baby cool and avoid over covering in this hot humid Nigeria weather.

My 8 month old baby has 6 teeth. I hope it's ok?
  • Best Answer
Yes, your baby is very fine. Teething usually begins around 6 months of age. The lower front teeth usually come in first. Upper front teeth usually come in 1 to 2 months after the lower front teeth.However it is normal for teething to start at any time between 3 months and 12 months of age. By the time your child is about 3 years old, he or she will have all 20 primary teeth.
My baby of six months is having some boil and rashes that looks like eela in Yoruba.Presently I am using dettol and baby tribotan on it. What else can I use? Thanks in anticipation.
This term for Eela more commonly refers to a skin disorder called Infantile seborrheic dermatitis (henceforth referred to as ISD). The cause of this disorder is unknown. This rash may be due to child’s response to some organisms in the oily areas of the body namely the scalp, eyebrows behind the ears, or on the neck, cheeks, chest skin folds and diaper area. It's most common in babies under 6 months.

Since you have seen a doctor and your baby is not better. Kindly go back for a follow up with the doctor or see a paediatrician. Meanwhile, focus on prevention. Keep the baby warm, no night baths or frequent baths. Avoid exposure to siblings and adults with cold, also avoid exposure to too much A/C or direct fan. Avoid smokes, insecticides, fumes and all forms of air pollution. Most cold are viral infections and resolve spontaneously on their own.
