My 3 month old baby randomly sucks when nothing is in his mouth?? And is drooling a lot, what can this mean?

My 3 month old baby randomly sucks when nothing is in his mouth?? And is drooling a lot, what can this mean?

Self soothing: Babies are driven to suck as a survival tool. If they didn't, they wouldn't learn to feed as a newborn when they have never experienced hunger-ever. Sucking is rewarded by pleasure sensations in the brain, and an infant with few capabilities can turn to it for pleasure at any time while awake (& partly asleep). It is why nail biting, gum chewing and smoking are difficult habits to break. ...Read more

Ate cookie with molasses. Scared I dropped cookie crumbs and my 4 month old possibly got them on hand/ into her mouth. Could she get infant botulism?

Constipation is usually the first symptom to occur. There is nothing for you to do now except observation. If your baby seems to be floppy or develops any of the above symptoms, you need to go to the nearest ER. ...Read more

3 month old spits up after every bottle! gaining weight and doesn't cry after spit up! Generally, a happy baby! Reflex? Switch formula? Allergy?

Thicken Feeds: You can try thickening the feeding with one teasoon of rice cereal per ounce of formula, feed the baby just a smaller feeding and more often, elevate the head of the bed, and keep him upright between feedings as much as possible. If he is gaining weight, happy and not having painful feedings, I'd try these simple measures. Be sure and make your four month appt with his pediatrician! ...Read more

My infant is starting to spit up during feelings. Do I continue to feed him and how can I help prevent him spitting up?

Feedings and spittin: Hard answer without knowing your infant's age. But are you "burping" your baby after feedings. Babies take in alot of air using bottles and nipples - burping them will reduce the air bubble. Sometimes spitting up is due to formula issues - changing to a non cow's milk formula may help. Gaviscon drops may also help. If the spitting is getting worse - dicuss this with your doctor. ...Read more

Reading signals: It is easy to assume a baby is hungry if they are willing to take more.However, babies suck often to self sooth and this can be when they are full. Babies are even born with sucking blisters on their hands showing they did so while getting fed through the placenta. Many babies are just tired and suck to self settle. Their crying is often fatigue and not understanding if they sleep it goes away. ...Read more

Have a 3 month old baby, formula feed & has had 15 dirty diaper between 2 days. Is that normal?

I assume: you mean by "dirty diaper" diapers containing stool. 7 or 8 stools per day may not be unusual, but if it is a big change from previously, you should take your baby to her pediatrician. If she is making fewer urine soaked diapers, it could mean she's dehydrated and needs prompt evaluation. ...Read more
