When symptoms start: Allergies can show up at any age. If allergies run in the family, your baby has a better chance of developing them. If your child develops chronic runny/stuffy nose, frequent ear infections, wheezing or prolonged cough (more than 10 days) after a cold or gets eczema, then allergies may be developing.

2 years and up: Most children need at least 2 years of exposure to environmental allergens before becoming allergic to them, especially in the case of seasonal pollens. Therefore, in regards to environmental allergies causing nasal and ocular symptoms these rarely occur in children less than 2. However, food allergies are different and can occur much earlier.

What are some healthy ways to get a crying baby to stop crying?

List of fixes: It helps if mom/dad make a list of what things they can do something about, for those times they are tired & can't think clearly. Offer feed if not fed within last 2hr. Warm if cold. Cool off if warm. Change if dirty. Console if in need of nurturing. A warm bath can relax them. If nothing works & baby is otherwise well, put on the headphones & let the kid figure it out.

How can I keep from stressing about my unborn baby's being normal and myhealth?

Prenatal stress: You should talk to ur OB & if he/she tells you everything is okay you should not stress yourself. The baby feels your stress as well so it would be better to let your doctor worry &stress for your & your baby's health if needed. You should enjoy your pregnancy&be happy. If your doctor told you some thing is wrong, there may be other things you could do besides stressing. Use ur energy positively.
