Q.

new baby

Hi Doc,
Ek het 2 vrae.
Eerstens, ek gaan ' n keisersnit hê  op 38 weke (beplan), maar soveel mense het my al gewaarsku dat die baba dan nog nie goed genoeg ontwikkel is nie - die longe ens. Sal dit eerder wys wees om tot op 39 weke of 40 weke te loop? Kan ' n week so groot verskil maak aan die baba se ontwikkeling. Ek wil graag doc se opinie hê .
Dan, tweedens wat is die beste formule melk om jou pasgebore baba op te begin? Hoe sal ek weet as hy daarvoor allergies is, watter tekens moet ek voor uitkyk.
Dankie doc.

'n Keisersnit behoort op 38 weke veilig te wees.Die pediater sal in die teater teenwoordig wees by die operasie, maar daar behoort geen long probleme of ander probleme te wees nie.Die baba formule is deesdae baie goed. Tekens van allergie vir melk is gewoonlik enige veluitslag maar veral ekseem of baie erge koliek of diarrhee.

your gynae should be be toadvise you on this, and if he is the one who suggested the c-section at 38 weeks, Im sure he has reasons for it, medical reasons, so I think the best and most reliable advise you' ll get from your doctor and not from people. If you are still unsure, get a second opinion from another gynae.

As for the milk, Im sure the pediatrician can advise you better, but the common one is Nan, and you will know if it doesnt agree with your baby because you' ll get to know baby and will see when somethings not right, but the clinic will also guide you on that
