With my first daughter, the pushing stage was very slow (about an hour or so) - but with my second, because of the complications, they needed many more doctors/pediatricians etc at the delivery. They pretty much insisted on vacuum delivery after only maybe 15-20 minutes of pushing.

    And meconium aspiration is when the baby poos while she is still in the womb, and then often some of that can get into the lungs causing an infection.
    Hmm.... for their convenience...

    Anyway, i think that i'm in bit of emergency as the dr said my baby is in stress? I dont know what does this mean? I'm too overwhelmed that my girl had such a suction impact on her head and then serious jaudice that i felt that i'm not focus on anything then my girl well being after born.

    This little person really brought so much changes in my life. Now that she is more settled or rather i'm more comfortable with her. She's a bundle of joy now.

    Thank you for explaining those term to me. I'm planning on #2 soon and i'm so happy to get so much support from this forum here.

    Also, i'm following your blog for your girl Maddy. The things you wrote are amazing and very inspiring really. However, i'm too shy and i dont think i can be your follower as i dont write a blog?

    My boy was born with some hair, and he loss lot of them. Now he is 6 month, and his hair is finally growing back.

    Your baby is just 4 months old. Probably her hair hasn't started growing yet? Is her hair growing in some other area? If not, then probably would be fine.

    Oh, so your boy is delivered by suction too? I'm just keeping fingers crossed. If it doesnt grow, then go for hair implant.

    Oh no. My boy was delivered by c-section. But my point is that your baby hair may be in resting phase. That is why it may not be growing yet.

    Don't worry the hair will grow back, so many baby (Born with or without suction) lose hair for first 6 months or more. And then by 2 years old the hair start getting thicker. For reassurance get it checked by a hair specialist to know if she has hair follicles or they have been damaged/ lost when the skin came off. They do an analysis using some kind of microscope I think.

    Good thinking to go to hair specialist. Guess, i will have to wait as my baby girl is only close to 4 months. Thank you for your advice!
