My 10 months old baby cries a lot when she feels sleepy at night and stil like that until.She.Sleeps.Any solutions?

Sleepy Baby: Sometimes children cry more when they are overtired. You may want to read a book "healthy sleep habits, happy child" by marc weissbluth. If you look for signs of fatigue in your baby, you may want to try to put your baby to sleep earlier so that the baby can fall asleep before she/he becomes overtired. Then, it is more difficult for a baby to settle down if the child is past its sleep time. ...Read more

10 month old having cough, cold and fever(37.3-37.5) for 3 days is fussy during feeding times. How can i feed him.

Clear liquids: Make sure to give him lots of clear fluids (water, Pedialyte) to keep him hydrated. You can give it with a bottle, cup or even spoon, if necessary. Don't worry too much if he isn't eating well- the important thing is the fluids. That will help with the fever and loosen his mucous as well. Use bulb and saline drops to suction his nose. Call the doctor if he's not better. ...Read more

My 10 week old daughter is exclusively formula fed. She still spits up a lot, and for a while after each feeding. How can I help her out?

Burp, upright: New babies, like 10 week old, spit alot. The valves that close their stomachs are not well developed, and they are also on liquid diets and eat frequently. Feed slowly, burp frequently and keep upright after feeds. There are special anti-reflux formulas that "thicken" the feeding, or alternatively, some docs like the parents to use cereal to thicken the feed. Talk to your ped! congrats on baby! ...Read more

I feel like im over feeding my 7 week old she eats 4oz every 2-3 hours and shes getting pretty chubby, when do babys start loosing weight?

Breastfeed: Breastfeeding provides milk to babies naturally (babies have to put effort into feeding, and the breastmilk doesn't come out as easily nor as endlessly as when a baby drinks from a bottle). Otherwise, each baby gets checked at age 1 month, 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, etc... and the doctor will provide advise IF the baby is too chubby. Many babies start off chubby but become less so after 6 mon. ...Read more
