Pediatrics eval: Though this is possibly normal, it would help to find out if your baby has food intolerances, decreased innervation to the colon or intestines, a dilated colon, or another structural reason for slow transit. Check with a local osteopathic physician who specializes in pediatric manipulation if your pediatrician does not find any reason for the infrequency of bowel movements. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
The term "irritability" is used for infants and young children who, when ill, are especially fussy, whiny, and fretful, despite attempts at comforting and soothing them. Irritability can be a very early sign of serious problems. Although irritability is not a symptom of any specific illness, it should arouse suspicion in the parent that something might be wrong with the child, even though there may not ...Read more
Be grateful: Nothing is wrong. Your child is content, well fed, loved and does not feel a need to fuss. Some babies (and people) in life are just laid back and content. Others like to make a fuss. If his personality is to be content and happy, REJOICE! ...Read more

Don't : Don't wake him up! thank your lucky stars that he's a good sleeper and let him sleep through the night! unless he has a genetic disorder that requires him to eat every few hours (and you would know this because it is part of the newborn screen), it is fine to let him sleep throughout the night - even 8 hours if he'll do it. He may want to eat more during the day if he's sleeping more at night, so if he's draining that 4 oz bottle, you may want to offer 5 or 6 oz. He'll let you know when he's hungry. Congratulations on your baby! ...Read more

Your doctor can also re-weigh your infant and see if the baby is gaining weight. Your doctor might also suggest other formulas to try. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
