Call pediatrician: some babys cannot expectorate phlegm and vomiting is how they clear mucous; however, I siggest a pediatric evaluation.

A 33-year-old member asked:

How many bowel movements should my infant have?

3 doctor answers4 doctors weighed in
Dr. Adam Naddelman
Pediatrics 24 years experience
Varies: The amount of bowel movements an infant can have varies tremendously. It can be every few hours, once a day, every few days, or even once a week. The important thing is to speak to your pediatrician if he/she is very uncomfortable when passing a stool, if the stool is very hard, or if there is a sudden and dramatic change in her bowel movements.

How many times per day should I have my baby do "tummy time"?

Often: The more "tummy time" your baby gets, the rounder her head will be and the easier it will be for her to learn to roll, sit and crawl. Tummy time - as much as possible!
A member asked:

If my family has a history of ear infections, will my baby get them, too?

Possibly: Research has shown that some infants are more prone to ear infections due to genetic factors, so these may "run in families". Even more important factors which increase the risk of ear infections are bottle feeding, being in daycare, and exposure to second hand cigarette smoke.

And aerosols and fragrances in the home (detergents, body care products, etc.,) can be as bad as second-hand smoke, they just smell better. Fragrance-free, please, esp. if family-history of allergies, asthma, eczema, ear infections).

Depends on his age: Babies need less sleep as they age. The following is the average amount of sleep babies need at different ages; each individual baby is slightly different. Newborns: 16-18 hr/day (half during the day, half at night) 3 months: 15 hr/ day 9 months: 14 hr/day (but now it's 10 hr at night, 4 during the day) 2 years old: 13 hr/day (most at night with a 2 hour nap) 4 year old 11 hr (no nap).

It is low...: Have your doctor explain the results so you can understand what the plan will be. Most likely it is an anemia due to iron deficiency, but need to rule out genetic reasons like thalassemias. Treatment is via iron supplements or foods rich in iron like green leafy vegetables, meats, beans and iron enriched cereals. Egg yolks are also a good source.
