9 Month Old Baby Still Not Sleeping Through The Night
My 9 month old baby keeps coughing at night for the past few days and seems to have no cough during the day why is it only when he's in deep sleep?
Baby's night cough: Coughing with a cold is often worse when lying down and during sleep because the muscles and tissues of the upper airway become relaxed, mucus drips down our nose and throat, and we don't clear our airway of secretions as well during sleep. However infants with worsening cough or difficulty breathing must be evaluated for more serious conditions, such as pertussis, bronchiolitis, or pneumonia. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

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
