Can I Hurt My Baby Sleeping On My Side

3 months baby sleeping longer at night 4-5 hours and feeding less than usual, around 3 1/2oz- 4oz, she used to take 5oz.. She breastfeeds?
May be ok: As long as a 3 month-old baby is happy, interactive, gaining weight, not fussy; and has no ill signs such as fever, vomiting, diarrhea, or rashes, then he may be normal (because babies change their eating and sleeping habits as they grow). A 3 month-old baby can sleep 6-7 hours at night. The amount he breastfeeds is usually unknown (isn't measured). The doctor can re-check his weight and length. ...Read more

My 7yrs old daughter had asthma and coughing tonite she is using steam Vicks with water.But my 6months baby sleeping with her..Is that ok for my baby?

Get checked out : If you simply slept wrong you may have sore, aching muscles. This is not a serious problem. Unfortunately other, more serious problem should be excluded. Problems with the pregnancy could cause stomach or back pains. It's a good idea to get checked out by your obstetrician and a fetal ultrasound is probably warrant. ...Read more
No: I agree that you should wait until the baby is between 4-6 months of age. You may know it is time to start when you baby starts to wake up more frequently at night and is not hungry. I usually recommend that you revise the bedtime routine at this point so that feeding prior to stories, etc. If the baby is breastfed it may go better if the dad (or non nursing partner) puts the baby down. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
