Can i take a 3 month old baby to a ship cruise?

Can i take  a 3 month old baby to a ship cruise?

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

Toe-walking that : Persists 3 months after walking first begins is considered atypical. Then one looks for associated language delays ;/or signs of autistic spectrum disorder (though it's not clear why toe-walking is associated with these). Ask his doctor to check muscle tone, strength ; reflexes. Does he play pat-cake, wave "bye" back, roll a ball back to you ; other imitative games? See www.Firstsigns.Org. ...Read more

It would also be helpful to know if he has always been along the 10%tile for weight his whole life or not. ...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

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?

Dent really AF?: Are tey sure te "dent" i snot his fontanelle. 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
