Baby Sleeps With Blankets
My 6wk old baby fusses all night & sleeps daytime & often needs waking up 4 hourly during the day but hardly sleeps at night. Normal? Formula fed baby
Flipped pattern: This is common to parents who believe they should let baby sleep during the day if they had a bad night. Babies are pattern creatures and this continues until you stop it. Try waking every hour during the day for a minimum of five minutes and leaving alone at night, the pattern should reset within a week. ...Read more
A 30 days old child, each time after feeding she sleeps and during her sleep she throw out some milk but sometimes she chokes with them. Any solution?
Pediatrician: Can check to determine if she is having reflux. That is when the ability to move formula through the stomach and on is slow or there is a tendency for it to come back up into the esophagus from the stomach. Choking can occur when the refluxed formula enters the upper airway. You should bring her to her doctor to have her checked and if this is the case her doctor will recommend actions to limit the reflux of milk. These may include thickening her formula if she is bottle fed, giving an antacid, having her in an upright position after feeding for a period of time and possibly changing her formula if it is determined that she is having an intolerance to it.

Loaded question: Why do you ask? If an 80+ year old wanted to take his/her baby blanket with them to bed i wouldn't care or stop them. Kids usually give up these comfort things when they begin to sense peer pressure at school age.I do not recommend taking them from the child, ever! a kid should be provided his/her own space to decide what comforts them.Adults can be creative in finding ways for kid to give it up. ...Read more
My 7 months baby wakes up at night couple of times. We feed him and he sleeps. Does he wake up bcoz he is hungry? Or are we overfeeding him?
He awakens because: He's a "trained night feeder." healthy babies over 6 mos. Don't need night feeds, ; are old enough for learned behaviors. If you read to him, feed, brush his teeth or wipe off his gums, then put him to bed drowsy, but awake, he'll learn to self-calm for sleep-onset ; for night-waking. If you consistently ignore night-crying. It increases at first, then stops. See healthychildren.Org for tips. ...Read more

Might not: It looks like your child might have a viral upper respiratory infection presenting with congestion, runny nose, then loose stool or even diarrhea.

Go to her when wakes up, sooth her but don't pick her up. After 3-4 nights and youll get your rest. ...Read more
My 3 months baby refuses to sleep in her bed, the only way she sleeps is in her carseat even at night.Can this be harmful for her developement?
I see no problem: The kid may actually be self selecting a position that helps her deal with heartburn/reflux that can be common when babies lay down. After 5-6 mo this should be less of a problem & you may be able to get baby back into a bed. At this point just do what you need to get through the day / night ...Read more
When my 3 month old who sleeps through the night wakes up, his hands are freezing. I don't over dress him andi use a fan to prevent sids, heat [email protected] 70?
Common energy saver: Infants in a cool environment often shift blood flow from the top skin down deeper to conserve the heat & energy they use to grow. Fingers, toes, lips & ears are often cooler than surrounding areas.Sleeping in a onzie with mittens & hat is what i reccomend. The cold hands is not a sign of a problem & likely bothers you more than baby.Fans or pacifiers may drop sids risk but not > sleeping on hisback. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

5 mnth bb sleeps from 11pm till 10am without waking up to feed, after feeding she sleep till 12pm, she knows how to sooth herself.Normal? Shes breastfed
Growth adequate?: If she is gaining weight and growing fine, development on track, you have the perfect baby you prayed for! the key is adequate calorie intake over 24 hours. If she is getting that nursing during the day, then her body will let her sleep at night and let those growth hormones flow during her sleep. If growth is not adequate, talk to pediatrician about what changes need to be made to schedule. ...Read more
Yes: There perhaps is something about recreating that intrauterine environment which some infants find most comforting--swaddling. Neatly tucking a baby into a pea pod shaped bundle can provide security and warmth unlike anything else. So, once all snuggled in, sleep can not help but to come much more easily. Try it, you will like it...And so will baby! ...Read moreSee 6 more doctor answers
Great nights!: It's hard to recommend anything that might sacrifice your nights. Preserve that no matter what. For the naps, start a strict daytime feeding schedule of every 2 -3 hours. Force the nap-time, but don't allow the naps to be more than an hour at a time. This will allow your child to get some rest, but hopefully it will not affect your nights. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

When should babies stop being swaddled? My 2m baby startles too much and wakes up but the swaddle allows her to sleep through the night.
2 months old baby falls off bed. Baby seems fine but i'm worried. No bleeding, vomiting, or anything. Baby breastfed and is sleeping. Please advise.?
Should be fine!: Undress and check out all parts of your infant's body for any bumps, bruises or abrasions/deformities. Gently touch all areas to check for tenderness. Likely, you were lucky with this incident and all should be well. Persistent fussy behavior, vomiting, sleeping, or changes in his/her behavior/affect would be halmarks of getting an evaluation sooner than later. ...Read more
