3 Week Old Baby Sleeping And Eating Only
I have a 3 week old baby girl and she tends to hyperventilate and jumps in her sleep is this something I should be worry about?
M.D. follow up: Babies breathe a a more rapid rate than older children and adults. I would recommend observing her for any changes in the color of her skin, lips or nails. Sometimes babies startle and this is normal. I would let your pediatrician know as well. Virtual appts are also available. ...Read more
My 7yrs old daughter had asthma and coughing tonite she is using steam Vicks with water.But my 6months baby sleeping with her..Is that ok for my baby?
Maybe,maybe not: I have never been fond of the "vapor" stink as treatment for anything. I find the idea that stinking up the room with a noticeable fume is more likely to aggravate a cough than help it at any age. There are some decongestant effects, but the irritant value is similar to paint fumes. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
3 months baby sleeping longer at night 4-5 hours and feeding less than usual, around 3 1/2oz- 4oz, she used to take 5oz.. She breastfeeds?
May be ok: As long as a 3 month-old baby is happy, interactive, gaining weight, not fussy; and has no ill signs such as fever, vomiting, diarrhea, or rashes, then he may be normal (because babies change their eating and sleeping habits as they grow). A 3 month-old baby can sleep 6-7 hours at night. The amount he breastfeeds is usually unknown (isn't measured). The doctor can re-check his weight and length. ...Read more

My 3 week old baby sleeps all the time. I usually have to wake him to eat. He has a good appetite. Is this normal?
My week old baby has been sleeping so much the last two days, and not eating as much per feeding. He hasn't been fussy but grunting a lot . Pooping n urinating just fine too. Is he ok? What's wrong?
Depends: Not sure what you mean by grunting but that word bothers me a bit. The sleep, eating and pooping sounds ok. Does his breathing sound ok? If concerned i would not hesitate to take your baby to the pediatrician . Grunting is not a normal baby sound but it might be just your description for a normal sound. ...Read more
Yes and no: Three times in a day doesn't sound like an illness as much as it may be baby clearing his/her airway. Babies are quite sensitive to smoke/ dust/fragrances/ cleaning odors/etc. and may become congested and or cough in response. You need to eliminate these from babies environment and flush the nose if needed with saline. Increasing cough or change in feeding habits could signal a problem. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
