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. ...Read more

11 month old baby gets up once a night for a bottle. How do I break this habit and get her to sleep through the night?

11 month old baby gets up once a night for a bottle. How do I break this habit and get her to sleep through the night?

Gradual reduction: If you begin reducing the volume of the night feed & shift over to water, you will eliminate the "feeding clock" effect that gets baby up for a feed. Within 2 wks you should have a baby that may alert at night but won't be trained to seek a meal & should be able to self settle in the night. ...Read more

Is it bad if i let my 10 month old baby cry through the night in her crib? My doctor said its fine, but i want more opinions!

Is it bad if i let my 10 month old baby cry through the night in her crib? My doctor said its fine, but i want more opinions!

No: I have seen no data that would support the idea that letting a newborn or young infant cry impacts anyone other than those observing it. Tired babies often cry to indicate they don't like how they feel & want you to fix it.They are not aware of sleep but do so naturally. Behaviorists have documented a 4x higher rate of prolonged sleep disturbinces in babies rocked to sleep. ...Read more

My month old baby is healthy and growing healthy how much should he eat during the day if he is sleeping through night? Should I wake him?

My month old baby is healthy and growing healthy how much should he eat during the day if he is sleeping through night? Should I wake him?

Sleep consolidation: achieved between 1-4 mos. prevents behavioral sleep problems at 6 mos. & older. If he's gaining 2/3 o.-1 oz./ day, put him on his back in his crib in his own room, drowsy, but awake, to self-calm for sleep. It's not too early to set a bedtime, read, rock or cuddle in low light & wipe out his mouth with a soft cloth after his last feed, good habits to establish before 5 mos. when teeth erupt. ...Read more

My 7 month old baby won't sleep only 10 min a day and he just cries and winges he's healthy. At night he wakes up every 2hrs very bad sleeper help!

Being a parent: This common situation can be frustrating. But, it is your duty to teach him to sleep. This means you must let him be. Once in bed you must not pick him up. Avoid interacting with him regardless of the fuss. You can gently check on him, but let him not win the attention he is seeking when he should be sleeping. ...Read more

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.

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 more

My 7 month old baby is not ill since he was 3 months old he won't have a day sleep and wakes up frequently at night and cries all day i'm so stressed?

Crying baby: At 7 months my first consideration would be teething. If he is not teething i would be concerned about milk or food intolerence.For teething you can have your child chomp on cold things, like a half of a frozen bagel.For milk intolerence determination add lactaid tablets to child's formula and see his response.In the end you should discuss the problem with your doctor. ...Read more
