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?

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.

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.

Was wondering how much sleep should an 8 month old infant get?

Was wondering how much sleep should an 8 month old infant get?

A lot: There are several phases of sleep and one of the most important levels for maximum rest and renovation is delta phase. This is the deepest level of sleep in which hgh (human growth hormone) is released and in children provides one of the most potented hormones that naturally helps the body to grow and develop. This is why infants require so much sleep.

Dosage of Bromfed (brompheniramine) for 14 lb infant? Ped prescribed my 10 month old Bromfed (brompheniramine) for her cough: dose is 1/2 tspn/4hrs. Def not the right dose for her.

See below: Per fda recs, no otc meds for kids under 4 year old let alone under 1 year of age! And as per these meds for your infant, I can't understand why your doc would do this period! cough meds are not beneficial especially in and infant and can, in fact, cause problems like increase the risk of developing a pneumonia. I would stop the med immediately!

My 2 month old is fussy and has a lot of phlegm he has been able to sleep he has been coughing too can I give him some infant tylenol (acetaminophen)?

Not advised: Your baby may have an upper respiratory or lower respiratory infection. I would advise, baby nasal saline and gently removing the nasal mucus and checking the temperature. If there is a temperature of 100.4 or more, please see your physician. T If there is wheezing or a hacking cough, vomiting or any respiratory distress, please seek medical care from you pediatrician.

My infant 9 m old head most of the time sweats while sleeping in night. Is it normal? What r the possible reasons

My infant 9 m old head most of the time sweats while sleeping in night. Is it normal? What r the possible reasons

Sweaty infant: Many babies are over bundled due to fear of the child getting cold. This can cause overheating and increase the risk of SIDS. Your infant should wear the same amount of clothes as you. Monitor baby carefully for blue and cold fingers and toes. Don't use too many blankets. Here's a good hand-out: http://www. Nih. Gov/news/health/nov2010/nichd-02.htm (If that doesn't solve it, see your pediatrician).

What month do a infant start rolling on side to sleep?

What month do a infant start rolling on side to sleep?

Accident/purposeful: Infants may flip occasionally from birth and fully roll with a purpose by 4 months. It has been found that side sleeping is just as risky as belly sleeping with relation to crib death. Always put them down to sleep on theit back, and re-position them if they roll to the side until at least 4 months.

Can it be possible for you to diagnose a 10 month old baby for tourettes?

Can it be possible for you to diagnose a 10 month old baby for tourettes?

Criteria: Technically, according to dsm-5, to have tourette's the tics must persist for at least one year even if they come and go. A 10-month old cannot possibly have one year's worth of tics. So by definition, technically, the answer according to dsm-5 is, no.
