How soon can a blood test detect pregnancy after conception?
  • Best Answer
A blood pregnancy test can confirm a pregnancy as early as 10 days after a missed period (around 6-8 days after you have ovulated)—and sometimes, these tests can detect hCG even earlier. ... They are more sensitive than home pregnancy tests or urine test, so they can detect a pregnancy earlier.

While 9 months is the average age that babies start to crawl, it's neither unusual nor abnormal for babies to put off crawling until 11 or 12 months or in some cases, not crawl at all.

There are different ways. Buy corn either white or yellow. Soak for 3days after picking out the dirt. Watch and grind. It has to be very smooth. Buy filter with tiny holes. Like scarf. Tie the scarf to a bucket. Pour the ground corn on it and pour water. You filter gradually till it's finished. After few hours change the water every morning and evening. You can also grind guinea corn, yellow corn and millet. The guinea and yellow corn should be of same measurements while millet should be half of both.

Please do not self-medication. Most cold and catarrh are viral infections that will be left to run its course."For catarrh, Keep your baby warm. Adequate hygiene around a baby is expedient. If nostrils are congested, u can buy saline drops to help relieve congestion or do steam inhalation (both of you will have to do it) If no improvement, kindly consult with a paediatrician for further assistance.

Is Babyrex or Piccan a medicine for teething?
  • Best Answer
According to my consultant paediatricians, using Piccan, babyrex or Bonabebe for baby is not acceptable because it has a long-term effect which is terrible for my baby. They all contain paracetamol. You don't need to use either Piccan or Bonabebe. Like my Paediatrician said, Teething a natural phenomenon just like height. if your baby is having a fever or high temperature, then the baby is sick and should be taken to the hospital. Don't use any teething mixtures, if you're using any teething mixtures, please discontinue it immediately and see a doctor
Can I use Babyrex for immunisation pain?Good evening my baby is going for immunization tomorrow can I use babyrex for him so as to suppress the pains
Because all teething mixture (babyrex, bonababe, piccan etc) all contain paracetamol. And using as prophylaxis for teething is wrong as prolong use or overdose could lead to PCM toxicity (liver damage). Also, we can't tell when these babies will actually teeth. My 7mo baby hasn't grown any tooth, so imagine I have been given her med for it from 3mo. Give only when needed (having fever)

Skip a feeding. See what happens if you offer a bottle or cup of milk instead of nursing. You can substitute pumped breast milk, formula, or whole cow's milk (if your child is at least a year old). Reducing feedings one at a time over a period of weeks gives your child time to adjust.
