9 week old baby poo has been smelling like tuna? Been sweating more than usual, no fever. Gaining weight normally and eating normally. Cranky.

9 week old baby poo has been smelling like tuna? Been sweating more than usual, no fever. Gaining weight normally and eating normally. Cranky.

2 month check?: How was his two month checkup? Was his weight gain adequate? Was his exam normal? Did he receive his first set of shots? What did his pediatrician think about the crankiness? Or is that new? Any fevers or exposures? Tuna smelling poo is of no concern, but the answers to the former questions are critical to decide about the sweatiness! Best of luck!

My 9 week old infant makes high pitched gasping noises occasionally is this normal?

My 9 week old infant makes high pitched gasping noises occasionally is this normal?

Windpipe flexible: Sounds like the noise you describe is stridor. Babies can make this noise occassionally when they breath in deep or suddenly because their traceas (windpipe) doesn't have its full rigidity yet, so it tends to collapse down, leading to that high pitched noise. Most babies outgrow this as they age. As long as not interfering with breathing or feeding, just mention it to doc at your next visit. ...Read more
