Is Vicks baby rub safe for 3 month old who weighs 13 lbs 10 oz?

Is Vicks baby rub safe for 3 month old who weighs 13 lbs 10 oz?

I never recommend it: Any pungent odor or fume, whether rubbed on or placed in a vaporizer can cause increasing congestion in an infant. I equate vicks to cigarette smoke in young infants.It has little if any value at any age and never before age 3-6yrs. This is a throwback to the sweat lodges of the indians and should be abandoned along with leaches. ...Read more

No, ma'am: Individual psychotherapy with family participation is needed to determine what stresses him & why he is allowed to self-calm with a bottle. Assessment includes family history for psychiatric disorders, parent-child interactions since birth, child's iq, academic & social abilities, teacher reports & a dental exam. Therapists teach more age-appropriate coping skills before ditching the bottle. ...Read more

7 months old baby girl with a cough. Should i give her children's cough syrup?

7 months old baby girl with a cough. Should i give her children's cough syrup?

No: The first months are troubled by narrow nasal passages & exposure to dust, fragrences, smoke & other irritants trigger cough.Baby tries to flush these out of the nose with mucous but this often ends as congestion & produces rattling. The best rx is washing out the nose with saline & suctioning the remainder. Eliminate irritants from baby's environment & this will happen less.No cough syrup!!! ...Read more

My 7 weeks old sons spits milk whenever he burps i'm breasfeeding?

My 7 weeks old sons spits milk whenever he burps i'm breasfeeding?

Pat his back : You must burp him after drinking milk as in pat his back until he burps, otherwise milk gets stuck and he spits up. Another reason for spit up is gastric reflux, with that you need to ask your doctor what medications he/she can prescribe to the baby. Thicker feeds can help, but you must discuss with your doctor how to do that while breastfeeding. ...Read more

An eight month old chubby baby with inverted penis,any solution?

An eight month old chubby baby with inverted penis,any solution?

Buried penis?: Penises don't invert themselves, neither turning upside down nor inside out. Thus, one must be asking about a buried penis (hidden penis or concealed penis). As long as his pediatrician says the penis looks ok (within the various normal appearances for penises) at the 2-month, 4-mon., 6-mon., and 9-mon. exams, then there should be no problem. Usually, pubic fat got too thick around a normal penis. ...Read more

My 6 month old breast fed baby only drinks 5 ounces per bottle. She bottle feeds twice while I work for 8 hours. She is 18 pounds. She was born 8.5 oz?

My 6 month old breast fed baby only drinks 5 ounces per bottle. She bottle feeds twice while I work for 8 hours. She is 18 pounds. She was born 8.5 oz?

By weight is fine: She is likely getting much more when nursing directly from the breast. While you might expect her take more from the bottle at this size, she may prefer the breast and baby foods (presuming she's being fed some). As long as she's wetting aces diapers in that 8 hrs, is happy after feeds , don't worry. Offer a cup with water, too- it's time to start learning. ...Read more

One year old daughter crying for breast feed in night. Eats mild solids well. Not drinking bottle milk . Expects me always around her, else she cries?

Possible teething: She may be crying at night for another reason. At a year of age she is conceivably teething thereby giving her pain. Try giving her Ibuprofen or tylenol (acetaminophen) at bedtime and see if that soothes her.If you want to stop the night time feeds another thing you can try, is to let her cry it out. Go to her when wakes up, sooth her but don't pick her up. After 3-4 nights and youll get your rest. ...Read more

Baby poop: can be many different colors naturally and this is not usually a sign of any problem. In breastfed babies anything that the mother consumes can affect the baby's poop.
