My 9 month old baby has tears when he is breastfeeding?

My 9 month old baby has tears when he is breastfeeding?

He has tears..: ...When he breast feeds, and when he doesn't breast feed too. Every time he blinks, a tear washes across his eye. If he is actually crying when he is feeding then something is bothering him (maybe throat or ear pain) and you should get him checked out. If it is just eye tearing and he is otherwise well, it might be from a little nasal congestion , so don't worry about it too much. ...Read more

My 7 weeks old sons spits milk whenever he burps i'm breasfeeding?

Pat his back : You must burp him after drinking milk as in pat his back until he burps, otherwise milk gets stuck and he spits up. Another reason for spit up is gastric reflux, with that you need to ask your doctor what medications he/she can prescribe to the baby. Thicker feeds can help, but you must discuss with your doctor how to do that while breastfeeding. ...Read more

These symptoms together may suggest a heart problem. ...Read more

No, ma'am: Individual psychotherapy with family participation is needed to determine what stresses him & why he is allowed to self-calm with a bottle. Assessment includes family history for psychiatric disorders, parent-child interactions since birth, child's iq, academic & social abilities, teacher reports & a dental exam. Therapists teach more age-appropriate coping skills before ditching the bottle. ...Read more

My daughter has s 14 month old can peanutbutter hurt baby?

Peanuts & popcorn : Are easily aspirated ( get into windpipe & lungs); don't give them till age 5. Thin out creamy pb with milk because it's thick enough for him to choke on. If there's a strong family history of food allergies, hold off. Pb is fat & sugar; check labels. Brush his teeth after he eats & before bed, give milk (16-21 oz/day) & juice (0-4 oz/day) only with meals. The 1st dental exam should happen @ 1 yr. ...Read more
