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.

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

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.
