Can a 5 month old baby have nightmares? My baby sometimes suddenly cries as if in pain while sleeping.
My 5 month old baby is drooling a lot today and even now while she's sleeping, is it because she's teething or something I should be concerned?
Not necessarily: It is good to be observant and ready if anything comes up. However, babies have no social conscience and thus no inherent need to control their drool. They do a lot as babies but eventually decide to contain it. I see babies who never seem to "teethe" but end up with a full set. ...Read more
My friend's 5,5 month old baby doesn't eat or sleep, cries all the time, has eczema , used so many creams but nothing helps, is lactose intolerant?
Needs care: The baby needs to be seen by a pediatrician for allergy testing and better care for eczema. Lactose intolerance is not an allergy. It is an inability to break down the milk sugar, lactose, leading to diarrhea.More likely is a protein intolerance or allergy. The baby may need a hypoallergenic or amino acid based formula.

My 3.5 month old baby sleeps for max 45 min stretches at night. This doesn't seem normal for babies of this age. Is this bad for his development?
Will get by: Baby will do better than you with this. I would change the kid back to a more traditional night pattern.If you never allow the kid more than 2 hours of sleep at a time during the day, waking him to feed or whatever, you can get his deep sleep segment to go back to nights when you don't wake him.Don't feed prior to sleep, only feed on awakening. ...Read more

My one month old infant doesn't sleep well, he stayed up a lot lately. What can I do to help him get a good deep sleep and more?
No: Colds are caused by viruses. Colds have no cure and are self limiting. Aim is to make the infant / child comfortable. Febrex plus syrup has paracetamol(safe) an antihistamine called chlorpheniramine( not safe) and an oral nasal decongestant phenylephrine(not safe). This combination shd be avoided in infants and children. Can cause dryness, sedation, irritability at times and high BP. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
6 months: Years ago, breastfeading was frowned on & many made "formula" from boiled cow milk&karo. Since cow milk is designed for calves, infants were fed early & often to make up for deficiences in cow milk. Now that breast is back, or formulas mimic breast, solids are optional. The sitting child is more capable of participating & few sit before 6m. Babies can wait past a year and thrive. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
