My 4 month old baby gets histerical once I put his infant carrier in the car. He won't stop crying turning blue and shaking. What should I do ?

Keep him safe in car: At four months he is too young for a real temper tantrum. While he may get agitated by the car seat's restrictive environment, his safety in the car is paramount for him to be transported in any other way in the car. You may want to have someone else sit beside him not to make him so lonely. ...Read more

We have a month old infant who is gassy. We do our best to aggresively make him burp but within an hour after feed, he gets up crying from gas pain. Are there any other remedies?

We have a month old infant who is gassy. We do our best to aggresively make him burp but within an hour after feed, he gets up crying from gas pain. Are there any other remedies?

Some possibilities: Babies swallow air- when they eat, suck or cry. During feedings, try to burp him in between every ounce, or between nursing on each side. Hold him upright (on your shoulder) for 15-20 minutes after feedings to help allow the air to rise up and escape, and not get trapped under the milk. Try a lactose free formula. Try simethicone (gas drops for infants). Check with your doctor if this continues. ...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. 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.

Hi Dr(s). What can one use to treat conjunctivitis in a 11 month old baby?

Hi Dr(s). What can one use to treat conjunctivitis in a 11 month old baby?

Lid hygiene: I recommend lid hygiene for your baby. To do this, use cotton balls and baby shampoo, wipe the debris away from the eye and wash four times a day. Also use cold compresses for comfort four times a day. If there is a stye or hordeolum, use hot compresses to assist with drainage. If there is purulent drainage/crust then your baby can benefit from erythromycin ointment which is by prescription. ...Read more
