Avatar n tn My dd is 4 yrs and in Sept she had an unexplained seizure. She was sitting on a sit n spin for a couple seconds when she fell back and went into a seizure.

I have been nursing my daughter every since she was born and I'm wondering if there is any way possible that somehow my milk is making her sick.

I hope this makes some sense. I have been having this for a few days now. I am worried because it seems like everyone here is having a slow-down of symptoms and I feel like mine are doing the opposite. I have tingling everyday and now this.
Avatar f tn 00 a.m. to help her go easily. He will slightly sedate her first. She will be on her loveseat with her head resting in my lap as that is her favorite way to spend time with her mommy. I know this will be more than I can stand, but I promised her faithly after her stay in the hospital that I would not put her back in my car unless it was for fun.
162948 tn?1205256292 I was nursing for the first full year I had my IUD in, which helped contribute to not having an af. Once I weaned, my period returned, but was extremely light, literally a few days of spotting. When I got it removed, my cycle stayed the same.
