• I care for a little boy who has Velo Cardio Facial Syndrome ~ one of the characteristics is a cleft lip or palate ~ His mom said it was only finally named in the medical field about 10 or so years ago but I found info on it from 1978 so is fairly new in some areas I guess but also effects his heart lungs etc. He’s had heart surgery already ~ He…[Read more]

    My neice had one and she had surgery to correct it, she in a cast for a while and it never seemed to bother her or get in her way 🙂 I looks a bit different then the other now ( she is 16) but she is doing great 🙂

    I would get a second opinion ~ my son had one although it was small doc still told me that when they see them they dont do surgery til they are 2. They like to give it that long to close as much as possible and it doesnt hurt them ~ if the 2nd doc says surgery as well it maybe that is is large enough to warrant not waiting ~ do you have a photo of it?

  • Has anyone ever heard of two vents coming from one chamber and going to the appropriate places and being a ‘variation of the norm’ and non life threatening? My 13 year old has it plus a pin hole murmur and I cant find anything on it ~ TX!

  • ((((((())))))) My hugs and prayers to you ~ let us know how things go.My is 12.5 he had an echo and EKG ~ they were ruling out Marfan Syndrome ~ We know he has a pin hole in his heart (murmur) but we were also told that instead of one ventrical coming from each chamber there are two coming from one but they go to the appropriate place and it is…[Read more]

  • There is a risk of a misscarriage with an amnio, ~ even if it is only 1 % that is still a risk and being only 19 weeks if you did go into labor your baby is at risk. I know some who do want it but wait til the baby could survive should labor occur ~ I think in your heart you need to ask yourself if there are more defects and the baby can survive…[Read more]

    My MIL has been VERY rude to my 13 year old. And no matter what she will not change. She even swears at him when noone is around but other kids have confirmed it. We choose to not have him around her when she is here and if we visit we are there with him. Next time she says something YOU speak up and say please dont say that, it hurts his…[Read more]

  • RobinG replied to the topic Breastfeeding in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 8 months ago

    I didnt bf but I did get those rashes in the few months after delivery. Everytime I have a baby I sweat more often until my hormones level off and I think that has something to do with it. I also found that I wore a bra more often and that just added to it and if the bra gets a bit wet from your milk that will also lead to it since it is moisture (())

  • tracey316 ~ dont let the doc bring you down. My doc wanted an amnio and I said no. Every time I was asked I repeated no. Let them push all you want, if you dont want it dont have it. They cant make you no matter how hard they try. I am 42 now and had my 3rd at 40. I had the NT scan and refused the quad screeen. The quad screen is often…[Read more]

    Well said ~ although my son doesnt have Ventriculomegaly he has autism and has therapy 5 days a week.. He struggles with motor planning, social, communication, language, sensory etc. He is mild but it is there none the less. It is very hard at times and other times not so bad. I’d never change a thing about him. He isnt perfect but in a way…[Read more]

    Oh also, BF babies often dont need to burp since they dont really get air bubbles. Burping is for ‘if’ there is a bubble, if you sit him up after nursing and rub his back up and down and gentle pats and nothing then I’d stop burping as there isnt a bubble to be burped up (())

    Is he being burped every few oz or after the entire bottle? If so I’d try burping sooner. Or perhaps the burping is to hard, sometimes burping can cause the spit if if done to hard. If your LO has a milk allergy or soy then you will need to eliminate dairy and as much soy as possible from your diet. If you find eliminating those things and…[Read more]

    Way to early IMO (()) I didnt give any juice til 11 months. When I did it was organic pear juice. If not organic is was gerber juice bought near the babyfood. Juicy Juice is not the healthiest IMO for infants. Itis perfect for toddlers though ~ When I did give it it was only a spash in a bottle of water. I would wait at least a few more months…[Read more]

    mammo ~ sounds like a clogged tear duct, did doc suggest anything? Massaging it usually helps but it does take time to open ~ they will intervein to open it if it doesnt on its own so talk to your doc to see ~ 2 of my kids had it and I had to massage it daily ~

    Pears, apples, prunes ~ foods high in fiber and fruits 🙂 Fresh is more effective then jarred so try fresh first then if that doesnt work by jarred fruits ~ 🙂 Prunes are def helpful ~ Prune juice too 🙂
