Can a 2 month old infant have allergies? Seasonal allergies?

Rarely: Congestion is a normal response of the airway to inhaled dust, fumes, dry heat, pollen, etc. As well as infection. Airway mucous traps debris particles and works to remove them. Vaporizers help thin heavy mucous in some. Avoid cleaning products with heavy odors, perfumes, and smoke and change ac filters often. A particle filter for babys room may also help. Nasal saline as a wash is helpful.

My 2 month old weighs 14lbs 9oz what is the right amount of infant tylenol (acetaminophen) I can give him in ml?

My 2 month old weighs 14lbs 9oz what is the right amount of infant tylenol (acetaminophen) I can give him in ml?

Al little young: While infant tylenol (acetaminophen) is not recommended by the manufacturer until 2 years of age it is used and if so the dose in millilitres for the weight you have given is a total of 9 ml in divided doses over 24 hours. That is a very conservative dose so check with the child's pediatrician. Tylenol (acetaminophen) should always be based on weight and not age in children.

M.D. visit: At this time of year, it may be due to another viral or bacterial illness. There are certain infection that also can be diagnosed at this age, which actually may have been transmitted earlier in life. Monitor the baby's temperature, and it is advisable to call your physician. If the temperature is elevated, then a work up is indicated. PRMG/Pediatrics, fax 858 259 9689 for review of records.

How long does it take for a fractured rib take to heal on a 1-2 month old infant? And would there be any physical signs such as bruising on the skin?

How long does it take for a fractured rib take to heal on a 1-2 month old infant? And would there be any physical signs such as bruising on the skin?

Red flag: I must know whether this was an injury sustained during birth, and whether the diagnosis is made by a trusted radiologist. A rib fracture in an infant is deeply concerning for inflicted trauma. I would discuss this with a trusted physician / child health care team. Often we do not truly know even those closest to us. For your sake & junior's, address this.

Not advised: Your baby may have an upper respiratory or lower respiratory infection. I would advise, baby nasal saline and gently removing the nasal mucus and checking the temperature. If there is a temperature of 100.4 or more, please see your physician. T If there is wheezing or a hacking cough, vomiting or any respiratory distress, please seek medical care from you pediatrician.

Please tell me 2 month old baby girl average weight and length my baby girls weight is 4 and half kg length is 57 CM please ans me?

Please tell me 2 month old baby girl average weight and length my baby girls weight is 4 and half kg length is 57 CM please ans me?

Trend is important: Based on american growth charts, that height and weight for a 2 month old is very close to average, and looks great. What's most important, though, is if your baby is following her usual trend of where she falls on the growth curve. Talk with her doctor to see if her growth is progressing as expected. That's more important to know rather than just the actual height or weight. Hope this helps.

I've been wanting to pierce my infant 2month old daughter ears. What month is OK to pierce my baby girls ears?

? Safety?: I ignore this issue for the most part but accept that moms get tired of having their baby called a boy. When asked, I encourage moms to wait until a few weeks after they receive their first vaccines, which includes a tetanus shot.

Does a drop of formula prepared 5 hours ago given by mistake to a 2 months old infant have high risk of hurting him? Plz I'm afraid and I need answer

No: If pt had a "drop" of formula prepared 5 hrs ago nothing is going to happen to him/her. I think even if pt had a full feeding of formula prepared 5 hrs ago nothing would happen. Of course always better to refrigerate excess formula.

How can I relieve chest congestion in 2 months old infant? Can I give him something for it?

No medication: Unfortunately there are no medications appropriate for infants when they are sick with cold and congestion. But you can relieve your baby's symptoms by using normal saline with an infant bulb suction to clear the nasal passage.

How many shots do a 2 month old baby need?

How many shots do a 2 month old baby need?

2 months old: Are now down to three shots and one oral vaccine for rotavirus. Thanks to the 5 in 1 combination vaccines - Pediarix (DTaP. IPV. Hepatitis B) and Pentacel (DTaP. IPV. Hemophilus influenza) combination vaccines. Two less shots make the parents happier!

If a 2 month old baby sleeps through the night how much should he eat during the day?

If a 2 month old baby sleeps through the night how much should he eat during the day?

Whatever he wants: Normal, healthy, growing babies eat whatever amount they want to eat, night or day. Avoid feeding during the night, after age 3 months. If he stops eating at night before then, don't wake him up at night. Avoid counting how much is eaten. In nature, babies breastfeed, so the amount they eat is unknown, and not looked at. We calculate the amount eaten ONLY if a baby is sick or not growing right.
