Common but...: There is a wide range of "normal." that said, a baby at 8 months is nutritionally ready to last a good 8 hours without feeding. He might need a bit more before sleep, he might be waking up out of habit, or he could just want mommy. Talk to your pediatrician. ...Read more

5 month Baby boy  has fortnight back viral cough and cold .he was given taxim o and timnic.he is now recovering.mother has got cough.please advisei?

Improving...: Although you stated that the cough was viral, it seems the baby was treated with antibiotics? Either way, you mention that the baby is recovering --- so I gather that means improving.

It isn't surprising if mom caught the cold - symptomatic care for her and seek medical care if either mom/baby worsen. ...Read more

In fact, parents may be instructed to palpate the "retractile" testes, while the baby is in warm cozy bath; retractile testes tend to "drop" into the sac under such environments.

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
