Hi. When my 20 month baby cries/ screams he holds his head as if he is in pain. Is this just an attention thing or should I take him to the doctors?

Attention vs pain?: Toddlers around a year will do a variety of odd behaviors to get your attention, however, if you feel like his head positioning is pain related, you are probably right. This could be teething, an ear ache, sore throat, or possibly something more serious. Definitely have him examined to sort it out! Best of luck and thanks for trusting healthtap! ...Read more

What should I do if one of my babies eyes is yellow?

Till what age babies eyes seem cross eyed? Mine is 7 mo and one of her eyes is still slightly crossed

Several factors: Some babies have broader noses which makes the eyes look out of alignment (when they are not). The things to notice are if one eye only seems consistent out of line - or: if when you take photos and see the "red eye" and instead of being in both eyes one is consistently dark (out of line) then there might be a problem. Ask you pediatrician if you have difficulty making this decision. ...Read more

Infant had fever about 2 days up to 102.7 finally broke on day 2 but now has rash on head chest back and cries almost constantly?

Common patters: A lot of infant viral infections will have fever for a few days and end in a generalized rash.

This will guide treatment /formula changes. ...Read more
