Newborn crying all day. No symptoms of being sick. Very fussy during breast feeding.

It gets easier with: Time to interpret your baby's cries. Unfortunately, when babies cry they swallow air. The smooth muscle of the intestine isn't synchronized yet to pass the air out. If baby seems gag when starting to nurse, he may need a burp. I'll ask my arabic-speaking daughter to help explain the " football hold" or "colic carry" to you to help baby pass gas. When all else fails, allow your baby to self-calm. ...Read more

Any relief for my daughter's postpartum puppp symptoms? She is miserable ans breastfeeding.

PUPPP: The main treatments for this condition are skin moisturizers or lubricants, steroid creams twice a day and antihistamines. The good news is that it only occurs with the first pregnancy and likely represents an allergic reaction to the stretch marks. It usually clears several weeks after delivery. Since your daughter is breast feeding, please have her discuss options with the gynecologist or nurse. Congratulations on your grandchild. Good luck with your daughters recovery. My daughter delivered a healthy baby boy two weeks ago in irvine. You certainly have a beautiful city. ...Read more
