My 2 month old baby cries until I lift him up in a uptight position?

My 2 month old baby cries until I lift him up in a uptight position?

See doctor: Two months old baby knows human /mother touch and feels better when mom lifts him up, so he may be crying for that. But there may be any other reason that he is uncomfortable like breathing problem, obstruction in airway, gastric reflux or having gas and needs burping. Get your baby checked by your doctor to sort out problem. ...Read more

My 3 mo old sleeps in her carseat bc she can't lie flat due to a cleft palate. When put on her back in crib, won't sleep. How does this affect sids?

My 3 mo old sleeps in her carseat bc she can't lie flat due to a cleft palate. When put on her back in crib, won't sleep. How does this affect sids?

Car seat fine: A semi- upright posture in the car seat can lead to airway problems in some frail infants or those with posterior tongue position(robin anomaly). For most, this position avoids the increased sids risk of prone sleeping and may be the best choice for some with a cleft.When the kid has improved mobility and or the kid has recovered from a cleft repair, crib based sleeping may be more realistic. ...Read more

Check her ears: "jack-in-the-box" syndrome is often seen in kids w/ ear infection or ear pain. After being down for 90min, they pop up screaming. Then ear pressure is reduced & they return to sleep only to repeat the cycle all night or w/each nap. Reflux is certainly also possible for the same reason. Pressure in the head and stomach build when lying flat. Check in with your pediatrician. ...Read more

Sleep training: She needs sleep training. Do not play with her when she wakes up. Keep the lights dim/off & talk softly @ night letting her know it is not time to play. Also make sure that she is on a sleep schedule w 1-2 naps in the daytime. The last nap should not be near bedtime. Enlist the help of dad to do this, talk to pcp for more specific advice. ...Read more

My baby 2 months old from her birth she does not sleep at night, she wakes up to 7-8 hours at night before sleeping.  How to change her sleep pattern
?

Breast or bottle?: During the day, rouse her gently after 2 1/2-3 hours. Engage her in gooing & cooing & putting her on her tummy to play. Have a consistent bedtime at night, read, rock & cuddle in low light. Wipe out her mouth after the last feed to establish the habit. Put her in her crib in her own room, on her back, drowsy but awake. She'll learn to self-calm to fall asleep & may sleep 6 hrs by 4-6 mos. ...Read more

My baby aged 3mnth.Til 2 mnth baby enjoyed breast milk, after that refusing.He cries, gets irritated at nursing time when awake. Pls advice what to do.

Breast refusal: There may be several reasons for baby, s refusal. He may have a stuffed nose and he has difficulty sucking with a stuffed nose, or the quality on your milk has changed.Sometimes there may be a change in your body odor, i.e. You are using a new soap or shampoo, etc. Try pumping and give him your breastmilk from a bottle or try changing position, etc. ...Read more

My 4 month old sleeps in her car seat instead of her crib due to cleft palate complications. No blanket. Is she at risk for sids?

My 4 month old sleeps in her car seat instead of her crib due to cleft palate complications. No blanket. Is she at risk for sids?

Equal: No more or less so than child without cleft. Recommend having your child evaluated by cleft palate team at the closest children's hospital. May be a bit of a trip, but worth it for the expertise and the team (pediatrician, pediatric dentist, orthodontist, speech therapist, plastic surgeon, oral surgeon, psychiatrist, nutritionist, etc) approach. ...Read more

Tough situation: You've correctly identified the problem. Inform your neighbors, put baby is in crib for all naps and bedtime to be consistent. Put him down while drowsy, but awake; leave the room, for at least 5". If still fussy return, but don't pick up baby, sooth with your voice, gentle touch, leave in 1". Repeat. Don't start this until baby is feeling better. Good lick. ...Read more

My 6 months baby sleeps for 9 hours straight at night and wakes up with no wet diaper. . Is that ok? She feeds 5oz and goes back to sleep 3 more hours

Hard to say: Unless you use cloth, it is hard to say if they wet or not unless you weigh the diaper.Most available disposables are designed with material woven into the fabric that pulls away moisture.If concerned, a square of toilet tissue placed over the genitals will show evidence of a wet when checked. If the kid is otherwise thriving, this is probably ok. ...Read more

Trying to get 5 month old use to crib. He falls sleep with little fussing on stomach but cries loudly on back. I know sids danger. What should I do?

Trying to get 5 month old use to crib. He falls sleep with little fussing on stomach but cries loudly on back. I know sids danger. What should I do?

Infant sleep: While placing babies on their backs for sleep has had a very beneficial effect on the incidence of sids, it doesn't work for every baby. All babies are different, have their own temperament and personality. Some will just refuse to lie on their backs. If you have an infant like this, just roll with his personality and let him sleep as nature dictates. The risk of sids is really quite low. ...Read more

My daughter sleeps from 12 pm to 6 am then starts fussing in her bed so I pick her up, give her a bottle thru sleep, put her back in bed. Is that ok?

My daughter sleeps from 12 pm to 6 am then starts fussing in her bed so I pick her up, give her a bottle thru sleep, put her back in bed. Is that ok?

Confusing statement: If you let a baby lay in bed drinking on a bottle you increase the risk of ear infections & dental problems. If you feed her in your arms & she falls asleep eating she probably didn't need the full feed. Laying her down awake helps her learn to self settle without using the bottle as a crutch. ...Read more

My 9 month old baby has tears when he is breastfeeding?

My 9 month old baby has tears when he is breastfeeding?

He has tears..: ...When he breast feeds, and when he doesn't breast feed too. Every time he blinks, a tear washes across his eye. If he is actually crying when he is feeding then something is bothering him (maybe throat or ear pain) and you should get him checked out. If it is just eye tearing and he is otherwise well, it might be from a little nasal congestion , so don't worry about it too much. ...Read more

6 months baby sleeps for 6 hours then wakes up to feed and goes back to sleep. How can I make her sleep 9 hours straight?

6 months baby sleeps for 6 hours then wakes up to feed and goes back to sleep. How can I make her sleep 9 hours straight?

Unlikely to happen: I'm surprised the kid will get 6 hours. Most will do up to 4 hours of deep sleep, alert and self settle for a few more and then get up for the day.No baby or adult sleeps continuously for 9 hours without cycling through shallow wake states. If you want her to wake at a different time, manipulate the start times to match your need. ...Read more
