Nasal saline as a wash is helpful. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

For your sake & junior's, address this. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

I have 2 month old baby, I've noticed that she slept well while lying in prone position, is that good or safe for her age?
Deadly possibility: In 1992 dramatic data from the scandinavian countries changed the american preference for belly sleeping to back sleeping do to changes in crib death rates. The crib death rate in the us has fallen 40% since this change. We can only speculate why, but the results are real. I encourage back sleeping for babies safety until at least 6 months but don't fret if the baby begins to turn over earlier. ...Read more
Tea tree Shampoo: Up until 2-4 months we call that flaking cradle cap or cradle crap as one of my moms said. You can use mineral oil or baby oil...Etc. I found that tea tree shampoo used daly (do not get in the eyes) worked well after two months. There is some evidence that it may be fungal based and hence tea tree oil shampoo works well. Tea tree oil alone is too strong for tender scalp. ...Read more

Allergy or normal: If the baby is feeding well and there is no blood in the stool or unusual vomiting or other signs of illness, then it may be normal to have a mucousy stool from time to time. However, mucus may be a sign of allergy to a component of infant formula, or in some cases something in mom's milk. If this happens rarely, probably not a big concern. If frequent, consider discussing with pediatrician. ...Read more
Avoid in infants: Cold meds we use as adults or with older kids reduce drainage by using meds that dry & thicken the drainage. Babies are dependent on narrow nasal passages that will block with thickened drainage. Your best rx for infants is to use generous amounts of saline nose wash and occasional suction to keep their nasal passages clear. Clean it as often as needed & avoid all the stuff for old kids. ...Read more
There is a normal: Range from 5th-95th %ile for infant weight, recumbent length & head circumference for age. Gender-specific growth charts are used for these parameters + weight-for-length.
