11 Month Old Baby Not Crawling Or Cruising
Is it safe to give an 8 month old baby Infant Tylenol (acetaminophen) every day during teething to help with teething pain & discomfort? Baby's weight is 18 lbs.
Interesting question: I find infants at that age travel better than they would at 1-3 years of age.I would have a few concerns though. Sun exposure is a problem, as they should be shaded not lathered up with sunscreen.They are also reaching an age where maternal placental antibody is declining and they will start picking up random viral illnesses. Breast milk antibodies help but are not fully protective. ...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?
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.

My 11 month old baby boy's fontenell closed early @ about 6months & he has a dent in the top of his head. Is this cause for concern?

Otherwise, if the fontanelle closed early but head circumference is still increasing appropriately and he's developing fine, not to worry. However, if above is true of head looks "mis-shapen", need further evaluation to see if the early closure is affecting appropriate brain growth/development. ...Read more
