Treat fever/see M.D.: The flu is an illness that causes cough, runny nose, muscle aches and fever. If he has the flu, check his temperature, tylenol (acetaminophen) can be given for fever. Keep the baby well fed and he should be checked by your doctor. There is a medication that can treat the flu. Monitor the baby for prolonged cough and fever, and have a re check if he is not getting better in a few days. I hope this helps you.

A 47-year-old member asked:

Is it bad if my 3 month old baby hasnt pooped for two days?

No - usually: Not all babies poop every day. Constipation is defined more by stool consistency, not frequency. So a baby that has hard rabbit pellet poop but goes 2-3 times a day is constipated, but a baby that has soft, mushy poop but only goes every 3-4 days is not constipated and that's normal and not uncommon. Some babies have efficient GI tracts and just don't make that much poop, so don't need to go daily.
