Your Questions About Baby Care

Thomas asks…


My hamster just surprised me with babies yesterday and i accidentally touched them because I didnt know she had them. I went back down there today to see if she had eaten them and shes just in a big bundel at the corner of the cage. I thought i saw a baby underneath her but idk if i really did or not. is there a way i could see if she had any without touching them or disturbing her.

Joseph asks…

What do babies born in winter wear for outdoors and indoors?

I am due in Jan, 2009. I am wondering what kind of clothes are warm enough for babies indoors and outdoors.

Will the onesies do for indoors, or does the baby need more? Should the baby be dressed in multiple layers for outdoors. How much will be too warm for the baby?


The Expert answers:

My daughter (December baby) mostly wore sleepers indoors. But go by the temperature of your house. If you keep it warm, she may well be comfortable in a onesie.

For outside, remember that you can’t have a lot of thick clothing in the carseat, so layers are good idea. A warm bunting for outside, and a lighter/thinner jacket for the carseat.

Ken asks…

How do I get one baby rabbit to stay with the other four babies in the nest box?

Our rabbit had five babies together, all in the nest box. Four of the babies are staying together in the next box, in the hollow dug out by their mom, but one baby keeps crawling out and across the nest box, away from the other babies. How to I keep them together?

The Expert answers:

This depends on how old they are. If they are 10 days or older, they are probably OK out of the nest box, and mom will sometimes put them back in. If not, you need a taller rim ( mine is usually 4-6 in) on the opening to the box. In other words, it should be deeper. I hope that makes sense. Also, add hay or a mat outside the box to prevent exposure if he jumps out again.

James asks…

What happens to babies when they die? Do they go to heaven?

If all babies go to heaven when they die, then wouldn’t you be altruistic by aborting them? If you abort a baby, you remove all chances that they will sin, thus sending them to heaven. You may go to hell, but by going to hell you ensure that all the babies you kill will go to heaven.

What are your thoughts? I know some people think you can’t be saved unless you are baptized, or accept Jesus, or any number of other ways, so just imagine killing the baby or the person right after they are “good to go” for heaven.

The Expert answers:

“If all babies go to heaven when they die, then wouldn’t you be altruistic by aborting them?”

I think that this is an example of flawed logic. Human beings were honored by God by being created in His image. Consider the following:

Genesis 1:27
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.

Psalm 8:3-5:

Psalm 139 NIV

13 For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.

14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.

15 My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place.
When I was woven together in the depths of the earth,

16 your eyes saw my unformed body.
All the days ordained for me
were written in your book
before one of them came to be.

Humans have always been precious to God.

Matthew 18:3
And he said: “I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.

Matthew 19:14
Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”

Moderns like to consider themselves more educated & sophisticated in thinking that as life develops in the womb, it has varying degrees of value, particularly if there are any genetic defects or disabilities–& for some, no value at all other than parasitic or inconvenient. That does not hold true for God.

Exodus 4:11
The LORD said to him, “Who gave man his mouth? Who makes him deaf or mute? Who gives him sight or makes him blind? Is it not I, the LORD ?

I think that the problem with many modern thinkers is that they look on human life with less value under those conditions. God does not. Human life, whether created whole or with genetic problems, has the potential to glorify God–& even to overcome the world in His power.

Since we are created by Him in His image, taking that life unlawfully (& I don’t mean merely by earthly legal systems but as God has deemed lawful) is murder. He alone has the power to create life–or take it because He alone is truly holy, just, & merciful. We don’t have the power to give back a life after we’ve taken it, but He does (& there will come a day when He has indeed promised the resurrection of the those who’d passed away). Consider the following:

Exodus 20:13

13 “You shall not murder.

Some versions of the Bible render the word “kill”, but in fact, the word is “murder” from the Hebrew רְצָח (“ratsach” implying premeditated killing, thus, “murder” is more appropriate)

Since it’s logical to conclude that one plans the death of children in the womb thru the act of abortion, it is in fact considered murder, & it is forbidden as such.

Psalm 49 NIV

7 No man can redeem the life of another
or give to God a ransom for him-

8 the ransom for a life is costly,
no payment is ever enough-

9 that he should live on forever
and not see decay.

15 But God will redeem my life [f] from the grave;
he will surely take me to himself.

“I know some people think you can’t be saved unless you are baptized, or accept Jesus, or any number of other ways, so just imagine killing the baby or the person right after they are “good to go” for heaven.”

Consider the following:

Luke 23

39One of the criminals who hung there hurled insults at him: “Aren’t you the Christ? Save yourself and us!”

40But the other criminal rebuked him. “Don’t you fear God,” he said, “since you are under the same sentence? 41We are punished justly, for we are getting what our deeds deserve. But this man has done nothing wrong.”

42Then he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.[f]”

43Jesus answered him, “I tell you the truth, today you will be with me in paradise.”

This thief is not declared to have been a believer in his life, but he trusted Christ on the cross as he hung there preparing to die. Jesus promised him that he would indeed live on in paradise. It’s kind of a down-to-the-last-second trusting in Him, but it was enough. It’s kind of interesting in that the Scriptures suggest that there is trust of God even in the womb:

Psalm 22

9 Yet you brought me out of the womb;
you made me trust in you
even at my mother’s breast.

10 From birth I was cast upon you;
from my mother’s womb you have been my God.

Our lives are given purpose & meaning because of Him:

Isaiah 49 NIV

[ The Servant of the LORD ] Listen to me, you islands; hear this, you distant nations: Before I was born the LORD called me; from my birth he has made mention of my name.

2 He made my mouth like a sharpened sword,
in the shadow of his hand he hid me;
he made me into a polished arrow
and concealed me in his quiver.

3 He said to me, “You are my servant,
Israel, in whom I will display my splendor.”

Our salvation is based on Christ alone–not on any works we may do to try to “earn” salvation.

Ephesians 2:1-10 NIV

8For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9not by works, so that no one can boast. 10For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

2 Corinthians 5
6 Therefore we are always confident and know that as long as we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord.

So when we are away from it, we, trusting in His promises, are in His presence.
