2 1/2 month old someways sleeps all day and barely eats next day up all day and eating all day! why? Low sugar? Diabetic? Scared!

2 1/2 month old someways sleeps all day and barely eats next day up all day and eating all day! why? Low sugar? Diabetic? Scared!

Get an evaluation.: With young infants, it's very important to document that they are growing and gaining. I always feel that one of the best indicators of how a baby or child is doing is how they act. If an infant is very lethargic (like a dishrag) - or very irritable, they need to be checked. It is scary sometimes with a baby who can't talk to you yet! get some help and reassurance from your baby's doctor. ...Read more

2 1/2 month old someways sleeps all day and barely eats next day up all day and eating all day! why? Do i wake her she sleep from 10pm til 7am

Don't wake the baby!: If a 2-3 month old baby is happy and growing well (confirmed by measurements at the 2 week, 1 month, and 2 month check-ups), then there is no need to worry about how much the baby is eating (because it is obviously enough), or which hours the baby sleeps. The old saying, "don't wake a sleeping baby", is true for healthy, happy babies this age and older, especially at night. ...Read more

1st thing 1st: Eating a large meals diverts blood from brain to Digestive system and normally makes anybody sleepy. u may try 1/3 of amount u take now and finish with tea or coffee.

3years old daughter active&talkative. Take only milk bottle&fruits. Have conflicts n mind .didnt stay at school. Much attached Wid parents how improve?

Milestones: It is sometimes ok to be attached to parents but still you need to work on her diet and relationships. At first you need to offer diversity of food because she needs to grow healthy and milk is not enough. Offer first the family food and then offer the milk. Initially work on acceptance of food then the next step is to male her quit bottles. Then make her meet and play with other kids her age ...Read more

Have social anxiety specially at academic place,have over protective parents,screaming teachers when i was kid,i am sensitive towards things,i everyth?

Psychotherapy: Find a local, reputable psychotherapist to help pinpoint stressors that you encounter in social situations, as well as exploring other stressors from other areas of your life, and explore how interrelated these are. Also, ask your psychotherapist if medication might help, and if so, find a psychiatrist to evaluate medication needs, if any. ...Read more

4mo boy woke up every 1-2 hours last night, crying. Stopped once seeing mom. Was fine with playing eating during the day. No fever.

4mo boy woke up every 1-2 hours last night, crying. Stopped once seeing mom. Was fine with playing eating during the day. No fever.

Many possibilities: A baby who starts waking at night after previously sleeping through can be waking due to pain. The loss of crying in response to seeing mother could be due to the therapeutic effect of mother's presence distracting from the pain. If it continues, consider ear pain or reflux. Both can have that every two hour cycle of wakefulness. Other things can also be present and a check up may help. ...Read more

Big let down/depression after incredibly fun weekend w/friends at end of summer events.  Clean wknd (no liquor/drugs).  Feel VERY down now.  Normal??

Not at all bizarre: Congratulations on having great, clean fun w/ friends. Cherish it. It's not uncommon to react as you did, but that does not exactly mean 'normal'. It's possible that some supportive highly skilled talk therapy could help you find ways to optimize your life at this passage phase. Early middle age is often a time to review and renew - especially when there are medical issues or concerns. It can help ...Read more

Poor sleep hygiene: A careful evaluation of the quality and duration of sleep is necessary to evaluate the reason for your son's symptoms.

Job stressful BP goes up 129/95--145/107 at times my chest hurts. Body clenched all day. Lookng 4 new job. BP as low as107/69 saw doc no BP med. ok?

Job stressful BP goes up 129/95--145/107 at times my chest hurts. Body clenched all day. Lookng 4 new job. BP as low as107/69 saw doc no BP med. ok?

Stress: Watchful waiting seems to the right decision. Stress seems to play a role in elevating your BP. Keep checking your blood pressure couple of times a week, try to reduce salt intake, daily exercise and 7-8 h of good quality sleep. Changing your job might be just enough to keep your blood pressure in normal parameters. Otherwise, if consistently > 140 and/ or 90 please let your doc know. ...Read more

Should kids have play dates on weekends even if with kids every m-f?

Should kids have play dates on weekends even if with kids every m-f?

Yes. Play-dates : allow you to monitor your child's peer interactions & teach age-appropriate pro-social & coping skills in a variety of settings. Tell your child what behaviors you expect, the rewards for complying & the consequences for non-compliance. If the kids squabble, calmly separate them or remove what they're squabbling about without blaming either one. Neurotypical 3-tear-olds have a preferred friend. ...Read more
