18 Month Old Coughing At Night
Doctor to evaluate: A ten month-old baby who starts crying hourly at night has a problem and should see his doctor. The problem could be ear pain, throat ulcers, head ache, tummy pain, tight clothes, fever, or something else that's preventing him from staying asleep. He may be starting a new viral or bacterial illness. If he is much better in the morning, that is reassuring, but his doctor needs to evaluate him. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My five year old daughter has coughing fits at night. She caughs a little during the day but it's worse at night. It's been going on for about 2 weeks?
Post nasal drip: Her cough is probably due to a post nasal drip. During the day she can handle the secretions by sneezing or blowing her nose. At night she is lying flat in bed and the mucus drips down and iritates her respiratory tree. Elevate her mattress so she is sleeping on an angle and uses vaporizer for her. ...Read more
My 2 month old sleeps for 7 hours at night. She never wake up for feeding. Should I forcefully wake her up and feed?
Let babies sleep...: If she is happy and growing, leave her alone. After 3 months of age, parents can give a feeding at 10 p.m. or thereabouts, and expect the baby to sleep 6 hours. If a normal baby sleeps 6-8 hours and is fine the next day, she'll eat enough during the day to make up for sleeping all night (and parents will sleep well at night, too). A normal 2-month baby sleeping well at night means lucky parents. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My grandma - 89 yearsof age started coughing up water since dinner last night - should she be concern?
My breastfed baby started waking up at 6months, 1 time per night, now at 1year& he wakes up 4 times per night. What should I do& what is the reason?
The reason is most..: ....Likely that he has come to understand that when he awakens and calls out, you come into the room. A 1 year old doesn't need to feed 4 times a night if he's eating well in daytime. Check to make sure he's ok (dry, not feverish etc.), then don't pick him up or otherwise indulge him. If he's physically ok, leave the room. Expect him to scream. He needs to learn to self soothe. ...Read more

My 10 month old is waking up screaming almost every 2 hours at night for the past 2 months. Started reflux meds but doesn't help. Please help!
?? Reflux ??: If your child really is suffering from reflux, some of the very acidly contents of the stomach will be coming back up the esophagus into the mouth and cause an unpleasant sensation.
