Infants have a cry reflex that is a normal response to some stimuli, such as pain or hunger. Older children and adults cry for emotional reasons such as pain, fear, sadness, or frustration. Premature infants may not have a cry reflex, so they must be monitored closely for signs ...Read more

Abscess: I am assuming the oozing was from his scalp and not his ear right?So it sounds like your son developed an abscess and it ruptured.The antibiotic and the ointment you were prescribed are absolutely appropriate.I recommend close follow-up with the pediatrician to make sure that all is healing well.Keep the area clean, monitor for increasing redness or swelling.Complete all medicines exactly directed ...Read more

My son is 3 weeks old & his right eye keeps getting these yellow crusties on it & it keeps watering like he's crying tears. What could it be I wipe it?

Nasolacrimal duct: stenosis or blocked tear duct. The tear duct can have a thin membrane blocking it so tears run down the face and lots of crusties develop. Your doctor can show you how to massage the duct and you can clean the eyes with clean water on a cotton ball. It usually resolves by 6 months and if not can be treated with a simple surgery, If red eyes, swelling or change in DC see doctor ...Read more

My one month old is constipated could it be the milk? She's taking Enfamil for infants the yellow can and is pooping very hard and crying

Infant constipation: One month old infant on formula sometimes has constipation. Add a teaspoon of 100% prune juice once a day would help. Lactulose 10g/15 ml could help too. Dose is 2.5 ML to 10 Ml a day by mouth ( you can put in the infant formula and give it to the baby. Try prune juice first. Good luck !!! ...Read more

Your : Your symptoms could be any one of a number of things including a yeast infection, bacterial vaginosis, trichamonas, or chlamydia and/or gonorrhea causing cervicitis or vaginitis. You need a complete gyne exam with cultures and examination of your vaginal fluid as soon as possible.

My son has been taking nystatin for thrush. Past 2 days hes constantly crying & today he's been throwing up & it is clear with yellow, what's wrong?

My son has been taking nystatin for thrush. Past 2 days hes constantly crying & today he's been throwing up & it is clear with yellow, what's wrong?

Many possibilities: I am going to assume the baby is less than a month, since he's on thrush medicine. It is possible that he has a virus IF you can think of a contact with illness that he has been around. In a young baby, there could be other causes, any thing from a bowel blockage to reflux. I would see your pediatrician for this soon. How are his wet diapers? We want at LEAST one every 8 hours. Lost weight? ...Read more

What could dark yellow urine in babies mean?

What could dark yellow urine in babies mean?

Concentrated urine: Concentrated urine means that you need to hydrate more. In the baby, it means you should try to get them to take more fluids. Babies should only drink breast milk or formula, 24-32 ounces a day, if under 6 months. Up to 6 ounces of juice can be added at 6 months. That usually takes care of fluid requirements. ...Read more
