1 Month Old Baby Sleeping Through Night Feedings
Why wont my 1 month old baby go to sleep during the night? He sleeps good during the day, seems to be more active at night.
6 months: The majority of babies will sleep through the night by 6 months. We consider 6-8 hours as sleeping through the night. 1 month old babies have no concept of night and day. You can try to keep him awake a little more each time he is up and very slowly he will sleep more at night. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is it possible for a 1 month old baby after 4 hours of sleep her diaper to be dry, this is her first time happening like this what can it be?
Yes: Sometimes these super newer diapers hide the moisture so well you can't tell by touch.In the hospital we weigh them. I expect pee at least every 6 hrs. ...Read more
? colic: This may be a form of colic versus food intolerance. Both can involve lots of gas and discomfort. If your baby is breast fed, then i would remove all dairy form your diet for a trial of a week. If taking formula, would try one that may be gentler. Also in the US, we are using probiotiics for upset tummies in babies. See if you can find Gerber colic drops, or the equivalent. Hope this helps ...Read more

Will my 1 month old baby's spine be affected by sleeping on a contoured pillow? He sleeps on this while he is next to us in the living room. Thanks!
Sleep environment: His spine is not going to be harmed but I am concerned about a 1 month old sleeping on a pillow for other reasons. All infants should sleep on their side or back on a firm surface without pillows or on couches etc to minimize the risk of sids (sudden infant death syndrome). I review every infant death in our county and unfortunately sleep environment is the biggest risk. ...Read more
My 1 month old baby has a reflux but sometimes when she wakes up she coughs is it because she didn't burp before sleeping? Reflux causes cough right?
Yes it can: And most babies have reflux, they outgrow it as get bigger, you had the answer in your question: burp your baby well after feeding, if wet burps are a problem, try reflux precautions: thickening feeds, feeding smaller amounts more frequently, raising the bed 30 degrees, feeding the baby at 45 degree angle, etc, enjoy your baby ...Read more
My one month old infant doesn't sleep well, he stayed up a lot lately. What can I do to help him get a good deep sleep and more?
1 month old, formula feed infant has dark green poop that smells like skunk (sometimes stringy looking)...baby is gassy as well. Is this normal?
Could be: The first thing I would want to make sure is that your child is gaining weight appropriately and thriving. If that is the case, there are numerous things that could be of help, such as different formulas. That decision can be best made with your child's doctor who will know what formula your child is and/or has been on. Good luck. ...Read more
A lot: There are several phases of sleep and one of the most important levels for maximum rest and renovation is delta phase. This is the deepest level of sleep in which hgh (human growth hormone) is released and in children provides one of the most potented hormones that naturally helps the body to grow and develop. This is why infants require so much sleep. ...Read more

If there is a temperature of 100.4 or more, please see your physician. T If there is wheezing or a hacking cough, vomiting or any respiratory distress, please seek medical care from you pediatrician. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
3 months baby sleeping longer at night 4-5 hours and feeding less than usual, around 3 1/2oz- 4oz, she used to take 5oz.. She breastfeeds?
May be ok: As long as a 3 month-old baby is happy, interactive, gaining weight, not fussy; and has no ill signs such as fever, vomiting, diarrhea, or rashes, then he may be normal (because babies change their eating and sleeping habits as they grow). A 3 month-old baby can sleep 6-7 hours at night. The amount he breastfeeds is usually unknown (isn't measured). The doctor can re-check his weight and length. ...Read more
My 7yrs old daughter had asthma and coughing tonite she is using steam Vicks with water.But my 6months baby sleeping with her..Is that ok for my baby?
Maybe,maybe not: I have never been fond of the "vapor" stink as treatment for anything. I find the idea that stinking up the room with a noticeable fume is more likely to aggravate a cough than help it at any age. There are some decongestant effects, but the irritant value is similar to paint fumes. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
When can I expect my 1 month old daughter to sleep through the night? She still feeds pretty much every 3 hours which interrupts night time sleep
Baby Feedings: Sleeping through the night is a developmental milestone we don't expect until closer to 2 months. Feeding on demand (not on a schedule) is key to achieving a long sleep. Babies need to "cluster feed" (a meal marathon) before and after a long sleep (until their tummies get bigger). Once she's sleeping through, try putting her in her crib to learn to fall asleep on her own (on her back). ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
My 1 month old precious baby boy will only sleep if he's being held. If i rock him for 30mins & slowly put him down he'll wake up & cry till i hold him again. Then he cries every 2 hours for feeding. What should I do?
Deep breaths: Have a consistent bedtime & routine: read (yes, now) in low light, feed, wipe out his mouth with a soft cloth, then put him on his back in his crib in his own room, drowsy but awake. It won't hurt him to cry before he learns to self-calm for sleep. See www.Halosleep.Com/ for safe swaddling. This will ? risk of sids, consolidate night-time sleep by 4 mos. & prevent "trained night crying" @ 5-6 mos. ...Read more
Good sleep routine: This is possible for almost all little ones, but is more than can be described in 400 characters. Consistency, a regular sleep routine, keeping the home quiet and dark at night, and helping them learn to self-settle are essential. Talk with your pediatrician about the details, but know that it is possible - once you are ready! (the secondary gain from "comforting" your baby at night is powerful.). ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
My infant 9 m old head most of the time sweats while sleeping in night.is it normal?what r the possible reasons
Sweaty infant: Many babies are over bundled due to fear of the child getting cold. This can cause overheating and increase the risk of SIDS. Your infant should wear the same amount of clothes as you. Monitor baby carefully for blue and cold fingers and toes. Don't use too many blankets. Here's a good hand-out: http://www.nih.gov/news/health/nov2010/nichd-02.htm (If that doesn't solve it, see your pediatrician). ...Read more
