9 Months Old Baby And Fussy
My 9 month old baby doesn't drink adequate amount of milk and is too fussy upon eating too . I breast feed him?
The term "irritability" is used for infants and young children who, when ill, are especially fussy, whiny, and fretful, despite attempts at comforting and soothing them. Irritability can be a very early sign of serious problems. Although irritability is not a symptom of any specific illness, it should arouse suspicion in the parent that something might be wrong with the child, even though there may not ...Read more
9 month old having wet dry farts that snell sour and hes coughing but no fever hes tired and fussy all day could it be teething cAusing all this?
