How long can I leave my 2-month-old baby crying without hurting her vocal cord? When cries her face's all red and looks as if she's suffocating?

Too young for crying: A 2-month-old baby is still too young to be left crying. Parents should still do all the things they need to do to console the young baby. They should be sure the baby is not too hungry, not too full, not too cold, not too hot, not sick, not wrapped too tightly, and not too lonely. After the baby turns 3 months, parents can start stricter "bedtime" routines, as by then, most babies can be trained. ...Read more

Premature infants may not have a cry reflex, so they must be monitored closely for signs ...Read more

Cranky: Yor baby is probably teething. You can give him Ibuprofen before bed to help him sleep. Also give him cold things to eat like a frozen bagel half for him to nibble on. He can also suck on a cold damp cloth. As a last resort you can get oragel to put on his gums. ...Read more

My 10 month old baby has very thick toenails, like you'd see with arterial disease. He's had this since birth; what could cause this in an infant?

My 10 month old baby has very thick toenails, like you'd see with arterial disease. He's had this since birth; what could cause this in an infant?

See Your Doctor: Your 10 mos old has "very thick toenails since birth". Congenital anomalies of the nails, hair, skin, teeth can be caused by a group of genetic defects called Ectodermal Dysplasias, of which there are numerous types. Involved body parts can be poorly developed or absent. Nails can be thick, misshapen or rough but usually cause no problems. See your doctor for diagnosis, genetic history, & therapy. ...Read more

My 4 month old baby gets histerical once I put his infant carrier in the car. He won't stop crying turning blue and shaking. What should I do ?

My 4 month old baby gets histerical once I put his infant carrier in the car. He won't stop crying turning blue and shaking. What should I do ?

Keep him safe in car: At four months he is too young for a real temper tantrum. While he may get agitated by the car seat's restrictive environment, his safety in the car is paramount for him to be transported in any other way in the car. You may want to have someone else sit beside him not to make him so lonely. ...Read more

We have a month old infant who is gassy. We do our best to aggresively make him burp but within an hour after feed, he gets up crying from gas pain. Are there any other remedies?

We have a month old infant who is gassy. We do our best to aggresively make him burp but within an hour after feed, he gets up crying from gas pain. Are there any other remedies?

Some possibilities: Babies swallow air- when they eat, suck or cry. During feedings, try to burp him in between every ounce, or between nursing on each side. Hold him upright (on your shoulder) for 15-20 minutes after feedings to help allow the air to rise up and escape, and not get trapped under the milk. Try a lactose free formula. Try simethicone (gas drops for infants). Check with your doctor if this continues. ...Read more

Sounds : Sounds like a blocked tear duct. These generally resolve spontaneously and need to be addressed if it does not resolve after year 1. Seeing, your pedeatrician or ophthalmologist can provide you with guidance and reassurance and follow up care as necessary. ...Read more
