Can I Give My 8 Month Old Allergex Syrup And How Much
No need, but you can: After 6 mths old ; once eating solids, you can give 1:10 diluted juice, at mealtimes only, although babies certainly don't need it. Water is always the best choice as an additional drink to your baby's usual milk. However, if you are bringing up your baby as a vegetarian, giving her fruit juice with meals will help her body absorb the iron from her food. Best! ...Read more

How much of vitamins c, d, and a can you give a 4 year old and an 8 month old? Wanting to build immune system to prevent flu.
See pediatrician: If your kids are well nourished overall, giving them multivitamins will not drastically change their degree of immunity. The flu shot would be more effective than vitamins. If you'd like to give vitamins still, it is not a bad idea for overall health. Follow the package directions for a kids multivitamin and speak to your eight-month-old's pediatrician for a specific recommendation. ...Read more
My 5yr old son came home and started vomiting. When I got home his temperature was slightly high at 37.3 degrees Celsius. I don't have a panado can I give him Allergex syrup? He doesn't look sick and is very playful
NO DO NOT: Don't give the baby melatonin. Even in adults, melatonin is not a sleeping pill. It just tells the body clock to shift the sleep cycle to an earlier time. It will not do this to a baby and it may be harmful. I don't think anyone has tested melatonin in babies. It would make no sense. ...Read more
When can I give my 8 month old table foods? He has 5 teeth now. He ate a chicken nugget just fine.
When they are willin: It is harder with table foods to assure that the kid receives a balanced nutrition in that critical first year. However, it is the goal we aspire to. I don't believe you need to follow any set guide other than reading the actions of your kid. Jar foods are baby fast foods. If you can mash up tale foods & the kid will eat them, you are transitioning them to the table. Take it slow & avoid choker foods ...Read more
Formula or breast: Milk 24-32 ounces a day, juice up to 6 ounces a day and solid foods. All baby foods are ok, or regular table food that is smashed to avoid choking. The only food restrictions are: 1- no honey until a year of age and 2- no cow's milk, instead of formula or breast milk, until a year of age. ...Read more
Feeding: He should take 24-32 ounces of formula or breast milk daily, before he gets water or other liquids. He can have up to 6 oz of juice daily. Some of the milk he gets can be in the solids, such as cereal mixed with milk. Once babies are 6 months and older they become more independent in how they eat and don't eat. He should eat as much as he wants of solids, up to 3 times a day. ...Read more
Maybe not: Fruits which are very acidic may cause face or body rashes, diarrhea, or diaper rashes in babies. Some babies will have reactions even until 2 years old or so. I would be cautious about introducing orange juice, mango, pineapple, etc. In the first year. When you do start these foods, start with a very small amount and then watch your child for a few days afterwards to see how she responds. ...Read more
Probably: Activia is cows milk based, so if your infant is on cows milk formula, he/she will likely tolerate it. Some people would prefer yobaby or other formulations lower in sugar, but the live cultures in activia tend to be better for gas and constipation (from my experience, not proven in research). And he/she is old enough to begin some healthy table foods, soft and not loaded with salt, sugar etc. ...Read more
Yes, but precaution: Most infants should get enough fluid in their diet and formula. In warm weather, offering some extra water is fine, any approved brand is fine. Depending on local flouride levels, she may need fl drops but check w/ your md. But distilled water has no flouride. Be sure she is not taking water at times she should be getting formula. ...Read more
How much water?: It is ok to give 8 month old baby water but how much water that is the question you should ask. You can give water after the baby has finished the meal of whatever you are giving him/her, you cand give upto 2 oz of water with a sippy cup. You will see he will not take more than that as his stomach is full and if he/she drinks more it can cause vomiting. ...Read more
A few thoughts...: An 8 month old baby is exploring his world, so he gets plenty of germs anyway (so water need not be distilled, but just of drinking quality). Secondly, babies are designed to drink breastmilk whenever they are thirsty or hungry, so water is not needed (formula is ok). A few ounces of water a day is fine to give, but breastmilk or formula is more nutritious. ...Read more
A lot: There are several phases of sleep and one of the most important levels for maximum rest and renovation is delta phase. This is the deepest level of sleep in which hgh (human growth hormone) is released and in children provides one of the most potented hormones that naturally helps the body to grow and develop. This is why infants require so much sleep. ...Read more

Teaching Obesity: There is no health benefit for sugar for your baby. Why would you add extra sugar calories to your child's nutrition. Our babies in this country are in general obese and dangerously so. Diabetes is on the rise in the young as much as it is in the adult population. Extra sugar is not only unnecessary it can be a dangerous habit to give to your children. ...Read more

8mm of gap in femur, grafting surgery done from anterior spine on 26.6.14, 8 month old fracture. HOW MUCH TIME WILL IT TAKE TO HEAL? Estimation please?
Varies: It varies tremendously. It sounds like you have a delayed or nonunion of your femur fracture. Bone grafting (as you had), dynamics ruin, and use of a bone stimulator are all attempts to get this to heal. Make sure you are not using nicotine or NSAIDs, both of which delay healing. Best case scenario- heals in 8-12 weeks, worst case- still does not heal and needs more surgery. ...Read more
Yes, but...: That's a lot of medicine for an 8 month old. Make sure it has been ok'd by your pediatrician, and this is not a good long term combination. If that little one has that severe of allergies, might consider adding a med like singulair (montelukast) to get allergies under control. Also, try to reduce exposure to the allergens rather than adding more medicine. ...Read more
My 8 month old son has a high temp and a bad cough will the doctor be able to give him anything to take? Waiting for doctors to open.... : (
Fever reducer...: Most fever and cough in an otherwise normal 8 month old is caused a virus. Usually there are no meds no kill the virus, so you try to make the patient feel better. Ibuprofen or Acetaminophen for fever (no aspirin) can help. Cough medicines do not work for kids this age, and sometimes can have side effects. Keep child well hydrated. Hope he feels better soon. ...Read more
Yolk only: You can give him the yolk but not the egg white. Egg whites contains the most allergic part of the egg. Its best to wait until after 1 year to introduce egg white slowly. ...Read more

My 8 month old refuses to eat solid food, only accepts breastmilk (I give expressed bm of 1000ml a day- 5to6feeds every 3hours)could this be the reason?
Decrease breast milk:
Try feeding your child food first and then offer breast milk after the meal, If you fill his belly first with breast milk, he may not be hungry enough to try the solid food.
If the problem persists, he may have an oral aversion to food that may need evaluation. Try first to give 4-5 small feedings of breast milk after giving solids first. Try cereals mixed with breast milk first then fruit/veg ...Read more
