How long can I leave my 2-month-old baby crying without hurting her vocal cord? When cries her face's all red and looks as if she's suffocating?
Too young for crying: A 2-month-old baby is still too young to be left crying. Parents should still do all the things they need to do to console the young baby. They should be sure the baby is not too hungry, not too full, not too cold, not too hot, not sick, not wrapped too tightly, and not too lonely. After the baby turns 3 months, parents can start stricter "bedtime" routines, as by then, most babies can be trained. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My 2 month old baby got his shots today and his leg is very swollen around the shot and really red, and hes been screaming. Please help - i feel so bad for my little man - i don't know what to do.
When : When a child (or adult) gets redness swelling and pain in the area of a vaccination, it is called an immunization reaction. It usually begins within 24 hours of the shot and can last 2-3 days (or longer with the dtap which your child most likely received at 2 months). This is not necessarily a bad thing - it is just your child's immune system responding to the vaccine and creating antibodies against the disease. Some people will also get fever with an immunization reaction, but if your child has a fever at his young age, then you need to call his doctor immediately. There are a few other things to look out for such as: - difficulty breathing or swallowing - difficulty awakening or appears very weak - a temperature over 100.4f rectally (38.0c) since he's under 12 weeks of age - an unusual high pitched cry for an hour or continuous crying for 3 hours or more - if the redness started 2 days after the shot or if the redness is larger than an inch in diameter if you see any of the above you should either call your child's doctor immediately or go to the emergency room. Otherwise, there are a few things you can do to make him more comfortable. -apply cold pack to area for 20 minutes to help with pain and swelling -give Acetaminophen (tylenol) for pain as long as your child does not have a fever and if it is ok with his doctor if you think your child may be ill or should be seen, give his doctor a call. ...Read more
List of fixes: It helps if mom/dad make a list of what things they can do something about, for those times they are tired & can't think clearly. Offer feed if not fed within last 2hr. Warm if cold. Cool off if warm. Change if dirty. Console if in need of nurturing. A warm bath can relax them. If nothing works & baby is otherwise well, put on the headphones & let the kid figure it out. ...Read more

Scratched leg on slightly rusty bench. didn't bleed but scratched/broke skin. do I need a tetanus shot? last vaccine was at 15yo. rubbed alcohol on it
None: Crying is not a disease, a lot of normal babies cry significant amount of time per day. However one has to ensure that baby is not hungry, does not have wet dirty diaper and does not suffer from any sickness for example: colic, allergies, diaper dermatitis, meningitis and many others. In such instances treating disease will help to decrease crying spells. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Pain in top leg when walking, had flu shot last Thursday is it connected ? Could be beginning of guillian barre syndrome caused by vaccine ?
No: guillian barre doesn't cause pain, & what minor sensory symptoms it causes usually occur where weakness begins (almost always in the feet). You've posted before. You weren't joking when you put "hypochondria" in your profile. Reminds me of the old Michael Palin BBC series "Ripping Yarns." In the episode "The Curse of the Claw," the character Uncle Jack had "every known disease." ...Read more

It depends.: If your baby isn't waking up during these episodes, they may be night terrors.
