My 6 1/2 mo old ped. Felt his anterior fontanel but says that it might be closing early than usual. Should i be worried? Or is this normal @ his age?
Follow closely..: It is a bit early for the skull to fuse, but unless he has had a head MRI or ct to assess exactly how open or closed they are, i would not panic. If his head shape is normal and symmetric, if head size is increasing along appropriate percentiles, development is normal, then i would put my mind at ease. However, these parameters, including head size and shape, need to be monitored monthly for now. ...Read more

My 2-month old is spitting up after every feeding for the past two days. Do I need to be concerned?
Depends: Most babies spit up, a process called reflux.This tends to increase from birth to peak about 4 months and declines significantly as they learn to sit up.If the amount is minimal and the kid is thriving otherwise (normal diaper count, vigorous at feeds and play) you can just watch it. If the kid appears tired, feedings fall off, or baby develops a lot of fussiness, have it checked out ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is it normal for my 2 month old breast fed baby to poop for a few days then not for a day or two on a consistant basis?
Yes: As long as stools are soft/mushy/liquidy when the baby does poop, the pattern you describe is perfectly normal. Some babies are just so efficient at digesting their mom's milk that they may not make a lot of waste product (poop), so don't stool as often. Many breast fed babies give little runny skid marks with each feed. Consistency of the poop matters, not frequency. ...Read more
My 2 month old sleeps for 7 hours at night. She never wake up for feeding. Should I forcefully wake her up and feed?
Let babies sleep...: If she is happy and growing, leave her alone. After 3 months of age, parents can give a feeding at 10 p.m. or thereabouts, and expect the baby to sleep 6 hours. If a normal baby sleeps 6-8 hours and is fine the next day, she'll eat enough during the day to make up for sleeping all night (and parents will sleep well at night, too). A normal 2-month baby sleeping well at night means lucky parents. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
2 month old dropped from 87th-95th percentile for height to 15th. Has remained 50th percentile for weight, why such a drop in height?
Measurement error: Length in infants is a difficult measurement to replicate. Baby's length is dependent upon how tense/relaxed he is. Think how he pulls his legs up when he cries. If 1st length was while asleep and 2nd while awake and resisting, he'll appear shorter. Staff may fail to fully stretch legs, head may move from starting point. Discuss with dr, but unlikely to be a concern. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
