10 Month Old Baby Laughing In Sleep
10 month old baby congested from common cold. Won't sleep on flat surface n no swing. Is it safe to use carseat for 1 night next to couch?
It does have risks.: The academy of pediatrics recommends a flat surface to prevent sudden infant death syndrome (sids). A more important aspect of helping the child sleep would be nasal saline drops and suction 2 or 3 times per day, but not more frequently than this. Certainly children can sleep in a car seat for prolonged periods without issue, but there is a higher chance of sids which must be considered. ...Read more

Yes. Some risk: Factors in full-term babies are bronchiolitis in infancy, family history of asthma & allergies, early introduction of allergenic foods, sometimes from repeated exposure through breast milk, & environmental smoke.

Homeopathy and drops: Most doctors advise antibiotics for ear infections but research shows while they may relieve pain a bit sooner there is greater chance of recurrence. An old home remedy is crushing some garlic, warming it in olive oil and putting a few drops of the warm oil in her ear. My favorite treatment is homeopathy. Many mainstream pharmacies carry hyland's infant earache drops. See comment for more info:. ...Read more
No, not normal: Bad body odors in infancy is not "normal". Is there just odor, or is there any type of associated rash or redness? Does the odor smell sweet, musty, rotten, or any other particular description? . If no rash, I'd start with using an antibacterial soap diluted in water and wash well twice daily. If ANY redness or whitish discharge present, I'd be suspicious for yeast and have that checked out by doc. ...Read more
Time: Bronchiolitis (not bronchitis) goes away over time. In the meantime, watch out for very labored or rapid breathing, make sure he is drinking and wetting ok.

Breathing treatments: True bronchitis is very rare in infants. It is more likely that there is a viral respiratory tract infection triggering air tube spasm that causes symptoms and may be an early sign of developing asthma. Breathing treatments can help make the diagnosis (if there is improvement) as well as making the baby feel better. ...Read more
