8 Month Old Baby Not Sleeping Through The Night Anymore
Is it safe to give an 8 month old baby Infant Tylenol (acetaminophen) every day during teething to help with teething pain & discomfort? Baby's weight is 18 lbs.
A lot: There are several phases of sleep and one of the most important levels for maximum rest and renovation is delta phase. This is the deepest level of sleep in which hgh (human growth hormone) is released and in children provides one of the most potented hormones that naturally helps the body to grow and develop.

Not : Not enough information to make a reasonable recommendation other than to contact your pediatricians office for assistance. If he was my child i would want him checked out for injuries to either his head or other body parts that might not be obvious to you. That was a large fall for a child that age. ...Read more
Dreams: She is likely just dreaming, causing her to twitch which is the most common cause of twitching like this. I know you're probably worried if she's having seizures or something more serious like that. There's an entity called Infantile Spasms but she doesn't quite fit the criteria for that either. If she starts truly flexing her upper body, at the next or waist, take her to her pediatriian ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I have 8 month old baby boy and I recognize this week when he sleep his fingers and toes twitching. I am so worried may be this is a problem?
Not unusual: Babies have a lot of dream sleep (REM sleep) and may move in many ways during sleep.

That can be a sign of a seizure problem and should be checked by his doctor. ...Read more

Why is my 8 month old baby vomiting after eating dairy(milk based porridge for babies or cottage cheese) but yet he doesn't after vomit eating formula
Whole milk products: Whole milk products may not be tolerated until after 12 months of age. Use infant formula (or breast milk) to make sure your baby gets the right balance of digestible nutrients. If your baby still doesn't tolerate whole cow's milk after a year of age, you may need to try a lactose free cow's milk or soy milk . Some babies can tolerate yogurt, since the lactose is broken down more. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My infant 9 m old head most of the time sweats while sleeping in night.is it normal?what r the possible reasons
Sweaty infant: Many babies are over bundled due to fear of the child getting cold. This can cause overheating and increase the risk of SIDS. Your infant should wear the same amount of clothes as you. Monitor baby carefully for blue and cold fingers and toes. Don't use too many blankets. Here's a good hand-out: http://www.nih.gov/news/health/nov2010/nichd-02.htm (If that doesn't solve it, see your pediatrician). ...Read more
Good sleep routine: This is possible for almost all little ones, but is more than can be described in 400 characters. Consistency, a regular sleep routine, keeping the home quiet and dark at night, and helping them learn to self-settle are essential. Talk with your pediatrician about the details, but know that it is possible - once you are ready! (the secondary gain from "comforting" your baby at night is powerful.). ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

11 month old baby gets up once a night for a bottle. How do I break this habit and get her to sleep through the night?
Gradual reduction: If you begin reducing the volume of the night feed & shift over to water, you will eliminate the "feeding clock" effect that gets baby up for a feed. Within 2 wks you should have a baby that may alert at night but won't be trained to seek a meal & should be able to self settle in the night. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My month old baby is healthy and growing healthy how much should he eat during the day if he is sleeping through night? Should I wake him?
Sleep consolidation: achieved between 1-4 mos. prevents behavioral sleep problems at 6 mos. & older. If he's gaining 2/3 o.-1 oz./ day, put him on his back in his crib in his own room, drowsy, but awake, to self-calm for sleep. It's not too early to set a bedtime, read, rock or cuddle in low light & wipe out his mouth with a soft cloth after his last feed, good habits to establish before 5 mos. when teeth erupt. ...Read more

Clarify question: Do you mean that she is congested, or that she had a study ( CT scan or MRI ) that showed " fluid in the sinus" (infants really don't have much in the way of sinuses anyway)? If congested for less than ten days, it is most likely just a cold, and there is nothing to do other than saline & suction nose if difficulty feeding ( too much can irritate). If other symptoms, she should see her doctor. ...Read more
Can I use abuterol sulfat and infant Advil (ibuprofen) with my 8 months old? He is wheezing and his head is a little bit hot (forehead 101f for 2 days straight).
Yes: You can use both medications. It is advisable to treat the fever when it is more than 101, and to follow up with your physician. Keeping the baby well hydrated and using the albuterol for hacking cough and wheezing helps to relieve bronchospasm. At this age a spacer device or nebulizer is used to help deliver the medication to the lungs. If the fever or cough/wheezing persists, please see your M.D ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
