Don't be so hard on yourself, no matter the scenario we tend to be hard on ourselves in first stages of motherhood. Baby wants to be with other mom 100% of time b/c of primal need--if mom isn't physically there no food. BTW, I consider exclusive pumping, EBF too. [ Reply | More ]

As I grew older I started to realize how limited I was, as a woman, and I explored the great feminist (although I didn't recognize it as such) questions. Why can't I do this?

It's not only common, but there is evidence it leads to a general increase in "robustness" and athletic ability.

I don't know about coverage for the shots themselves, but treatment up to that point is definitely covered. And if a projected height is below 4 foot 10, it's not a cosmetic issue. That's when functional problems become far more likely. [ Reply | More ]

I'd take her to a pediatric endocrinologist, who can track her growth and hormone levels and advise whether to intervene if she seems to be entering puberty and her projected adult height is very short. Once she is close to getting her period, you have a 12-18 month window in which to treat her before her bones fuse and further growth is rarely possible. Your ped should be able to recommend someone, or Dr. Molly Regelmann at Mt. Sinai is very good. [ Reply | More ]

OP should probably hurry, because the menarche/thalarche process (and therefore the bone maturation process) is faster in some girls than others. Some go through that whole process quickly and then it's finished, and there's not much to do with regard to HGH therapy in terms of height enhancement. [ Reply | More ]
