My daughter just found out she is pregnant. She is about 6 weeks or 7 weeks. The month before she smoked crack cocaine 3 times in one month. She enhaled twice only each time. She use to smoke it a lot but quit 2 years ago. She is scared beyond belief that her baby inside is all ready affected from last months use. If she never does it again will that one month be enough to affect her baby?

Hey there, I was just bathing my 4month daughter and as I was getting he out I slipped on the wet floor, causing her to go under for a moment and also unfortunately causing her to bump her head on the bath also. She has a red bump on her head, and is a little lethargic (although she is due to go to sleep as well) Should I keep her awake? or can she go to sleep while I monitor her closely? I have also given her panadol to help with the pain she may be feeling after the bump.
