Baby boy 24 days old very colic at night. Sleeps only on breast. Can i give anti-colic drops daily?
Slippery slope: Putting your baby in his own crib, on his back, drowsy but awake, reduces his chance of sids by 50%, & allows him to learn self-regulation for consolidated sleep between 1-4 mos. If he's in his own room, you're less likely to try to feed when he cries out in light sleep. Breast milk sugar bathing his teeth all night can cause cavities as teeth erupt, so wipe out his mouth before bed by 2-3 months. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
