My 1 year old baby is crying in sleep like he is in pain?

See doctor: See the doctor and see if there is a reason for the crying, like an ear infection or sore throat. If not, then it could be dreaming. I think you should have the possibility of an infection ruled out first. ...Read more

My husband just elbowed my 1 year old in the face. Hard. He turned really fast. My son started crying but then went back to sleep. Is he okay??

Almost certainly: Children cry for lots of reasons. The fact that your child cried right away implies that he didn't lose consciousness. If he has no purplish discoloration over the course of the next few hours then I wouldn't worry. If when he awakens he is really irritable and you can't calm him down I would have him see his doc. ...Read more

My one year old has bumps that look like bites all over but no one else in the house does and I sleep with him every night?

My one year old has bumps that look like bites all over but no one else in the house does and I sleep with him every night?

See the doctor: It's hard to tell what a rash might be without seeing it. It could be dry skin, an irritation from something, a virus, insect bites, all sorts of things. See your child's doctor.

If at all possible, it might be a good time to help him learn to sleep in his own bed. The longer you wait, it may be more difficult to change his habits. ...Read more

I have a one year old son. He is waking up way too much at night. Is this a good time to sleep train him? He sleep in the crib in his own room.

Sleep: Try these things: A. A quiet time to settle down. B. A white noise source in the room C. A dark room. D. Give the bottle or cup before bed and not in it. E. Give him a blanket that you cuddle him with. F. Put him in bed at the same time. G. Let him fuss a bit to find a sleep position. H. Respond to night calls slower and with a set wait time. I. Be patient it does go away. ...Read more

My one year old baby never sleep well. Iam fed up with him. He is go to sleep very difficult and wake up during the night 6 or 8 time until morning.

My one year old baby never sleep well. Iam fed up with him. He is go to sleep very difficult and wake up during the night 6 or 8 time until morning.

Routine: Help him by having a routine - same time each night, quieting the house, limiting exposure to TV, possibly a bath and a bedtime story. Set up the expectation that sleep is what happens at that time. When your baby wakes, check in, but try not to pick him up. Keep the room darkened and quiet. Walk away. You need to sleep to be a good mother. He needs to quiet himself - not easy at first. ...Read more

My one year old used to sleep through the night mostly. Recently, waking up at 3am and will not go back to sleep unless fed. Normal? Growth spurt?

My one year old used to sleep through the night mostly. Recently, waking up at 3am and will not go back to sleep unless fed. Normal? Growth spurt?

If you haven't: Already done so, take him/her to his/her pediatrician to make sure that nothing physical is wrong (ear infection/teething). If you've done that already, then it would be important to not have him/her continue this habit. A one year old should be able to eat enough during the day and not need to eat in the middle of the night. So hopefully, this is just temporary, & could be a growth spurt. ...Read more

Yes I have a one year old daughter she's been coughing everytime she is sleeping I have tyenol liquid I want to mix it in her apple juice is it safe?

Yes, but: I don't see where using this would do anything more than give you something to do. This is often do to post-nasal drainage and removing irritants from her environment that trigger it would be better in the long term. ...Read more

Normal: Your description sounds like a normal fall in a little one. Keep an eye on him or her to be sure nothing more serious occurred. If the child is acting funny, gets overly sleepy, begins to have nausea and vomiting, or other symptoms, go see your doctor or er asap. ...Read more

There: There are many, many things that could make a child cry; from teething, to ear infections, to stomach cramps, to just being tired. The list is endless! The best thing to do is take her to her doctor for a complete history and examination. You are correct in being concerned about a change in behavior in your usually happy baby. In preparation for your visit, try to keep track of when she has these crying spells, how long they last, and how she is doing otherwise (eating, playing, pooping, sleeping ok?). This may help your child's doctor narrow down the causes and hopefully find a solution. Good luck! ...Read more

My one year old daughter has several beats if ankle clonus while sleeping. She also had a small sacral dimple should I be concerned?

Should not worry: If the base of the sacral dimple can be visualized, there is not likely to be a problem. The movements in sleep are not likely to represent a serious problem if not present during wakefulness. ...Read more

One year old daughter has cough attacks mainly while sleeping which cause her to vomit has been going on for about 3 weeks, premature 5 wks has reflux?

? twitchy airways: Another fancy name for asthma-like symptoms, can be related to reflux, sinusitis, or viral infections, or other causes. You may want to perform some reflux precautions: raising the head of the bed 30 degrees, thicken her formula with cereal if she is still on it. More important is to see her doctor, as she might need some inhaled bronchodilators to help her at night and probably other Rx meds too, ...Read more

One year old daughter crying for breast feed in night. Eats mild solids well. Not drinking bottle milk. Expects me always around her, else she cries?

Possible teething: She may be crying at night for another reason. At a year of age she is conceivably teething thereby giving her pain. Try giving her Ibuprofen or tylenol (acetaminophen) at bedtime and see if that soothes her. If you want to stop the night time feeds another thing you can try, is to let her cry it out. Go to her when wakes up, sooth her but don't pick her up. After 3-4 nights and you'll get your rest. ...Read more

My 1 year old son is constantly whinning and crying?

Baby crying: I don't think you have anything to worry about. Some babies cry more than others and this is normal. Sometimes it's the parent who is actually more rattled than the child. Remain calm. Remember babies can cry for multiple reasons. More patience and experience will guide you. To be safe bring this up with your pediatrician at the next visit. ...Read more

How do I get my 1 year old to sleep when she has a cold?

How do I get my 1 year old to sleep when she has a cold?

Comfort: The average is 40-50 or so, but many kids its about 20+ and beginning to string two words together. However, as important is COMPREHENSION of speech. So much so that newer studies suggest kids who speak a little slower BUT understand and follow directions well, likely will catch up just fine by 5-6 years old. There is a spectrum of normal. If slower, check with your Pediatrician. ...Read more

Why my grand baby is jumping in his sleep since he had his 1 year old shots?

Why my grand baby is jumping in his sleep since he had his 1 year old shots?

Hard to tell...: "jumping in his sleep" usually means a child moves around a lot in his sleep. That happens in many kids, but can happen more often if he had a rough day (got poked a few times). "since he had his 1 year old shots" doesn't say how long after the shots (1 day, 1 month, 1 year, etc.), so it is hard to tell if anything is related to getting poked. If related, maybe the legs are sore or he is dreaming. ...Read more

My 1 year old sleep between 12 am to about 11 am and he still drinks milk from bottle before sleep and at 4 am and agian at 8 am is this ok?

A few things...: By the age of 1 yr children should be off the bottle completely. They should be able to go all night without requiring a nighttime feed. Your child should be good with normal daytime meals and perhaps a cup of milk before bed. I encourage parents to establish good bedtime routines. Bedtime around 8pm, sleep for a good 10 hrs. ...Read more

1 year old sin doesn't sleep at night, never has. He fusses all night & wakes up at least 4x tossing and turning. Has never slept 1 full night. Help?

Sleep: Develop a bedtime routine - bath, story or song, then bed at the same time every night in his own bed. His last nap of the day should end no later than 3:30 or 4pm. Babies that age are naturally restless sleepers, it is ok for him to toss and turn but he need to learn to go back to sleep on his own. If he wakes up, check on him but don't pick him up. He will cry, cough, gag, etc. Don't give in! ...Read more

Usually 12-14 hours: They should be sleeping through the night 9-11 hours and napping about 2-3 hours during the day. Of course some kids may need more sleep and some less sleep. The most important thing to do is to establish a routine and have some consistency with the sleep habits. ...Read more
