My 7yrs old daughter had asthma and coughing tonite she is using steam Vicks with water.But my 6months baby sleeping with her..Is that ok for my baby?

Maybe,maybe not: I have never been fond of the "vapor" stink as treatment for anything. I find the idea that stinking up the room with a noticeable fume is more likely to aggravate a cough than help it at any age. There are some decongestant effects, but the irritant value is similar to paint fumes. ...Read more

When can I start leaving my baby sleeping on her stomache?

When can I start leaving my baby sleeping on her stomache?

Depends on age: It is not clear what your infants age is, but some "tummy time" is good for development from birth...But sleeping on her back leads to a 50% decrease in sudden infant death. Some infants will begin to roll over in sleep by about 4-5 months and i advise that this is ok but i advise leaving them on back as long as possible for sleep initiation. ...Read more

3 months baby sleeping longer at night 4-5 hours and feeding less than usual, around 3 1/2oz- 4oz, she used to take 5oz.. She breastfeeds?

May be ok: As long as a 3 month-old baby is happy, interactive, gaining weight, not fussy; and has no ill signs such as fever, vomiting, diarrhea, or rashes, then he may be normal (because babies change their eating and sleeping habits as they grow). A 3 month-old baby can sleep 6-7 hours at night. The amount he breastfeeds is usually unknown (isn't measured). The doctor can re-check his weight and length. ...Read more

I've noticed that My 9 week old baby when cries a lot afterward she sleeps is it because she is tired and can't sleep easier?

See Your Doctor Now: More information regarding your infant is needed such as pre and post-natal medical history, feeding/sleeping patterns, and much more. Normal babies experience increased crying by age 2 weeks, crying reaches a peak by age 2 months. A thorough exam and correlation with history is needed to determine if crying pattern is of a benign nature. Early intervention is always best. See your doctor now. ...Read more

12 week old baby girl sucks on fingers and moves a lot when sleeping but doesn't wake. Is she hungry or just self soothing? Is it teething?

12 week old baby girl sucks on fingers and moves a lot when sleeping but doesn't wake. Is she hungry or just self soothing? Is it teething?

She is fascinated : At 12 weeks of age, your baby will become fascinated with her hands. She will examine her fingers and thumbs closely, put them in her mouth and try to suck on them. She also dreams and recognize your voice. It is very common for this age. All babies are different individuals, and they develop at different ages. Congratulations! ...Read more

My week old baby has been sleeping so much the last two days, and not eating as much per feeding. He hasn't been fussy but grunting a lot . Pooping n urinating just fine too. Is he ok? What's wrong?

My week old baby has been sleeping so much the last two days, and not eating as much per feeding. He hasn't been fussy but grunting a lot . Pooping n urinating just fine too. Is he ok? What's wrong?

Depends: Not sure what you mean by grunting but that word bothers me a bit. The sleep, eating and pooping sounds ok. Does his breathing sound ok? If concerned i would not hesitate to take your baby to the pediatrician . Grunting is not a normal baby sound but it might be just your description for a normal sound. ...Read more

Poisoning?: Any young siblings in the house? Sometimes they want to be helpful and may give the baby something that they should not, like a medication, food or other item(s). Also (I have seen this personally) parents have mixed up formula by accident with an alcoholic beverage. Have child evaluated immediately. ...Read more
