How Can I Help My Baby Adjust To Sleeping In His Room And Not In Our Bed
Consistency: Babies do not make choices, we make choices for them. If they sleep in our bed, it's because we put them there. If they are put down only in the crib, they will accept it, that's reality. Start by putting them down while awake, so they know their bed is the sleep place. If they fuss after a few minutes, come in, comfort them, and put them back in the crib. The crib will become the sleep place. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If it doesn't help, let him/her nap. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hubby has a cold sore. I have a 8wk old baby. Can he still sleep in the same bed with me n help feed baby? Would it hel if he wore a mask?
"cold sore"?: an ordinary cold sore starts as a vesicle, containing clear fluid. Most of us have had herpes simplex type I. It is unlikely that he has type II--genital herpes. You likely had type I and passed antibodies to your infant before birth. If he has an ulceration in the mucosa of the mouth without first having a fluid-filled papule, it is not a cold sore, but an aphthous ulcer (non-infectious) ...Read more
My baby fell down the bed on his head.and a small swallow appeared on his head.but he didnt sleep or vomit. is it dangerous?what should I do plz help
Fall in child: The criteria to look for is what type of floor, tile/ marble-stone, or carpet, how far was the fall 6 inches or > 30 inches, how old is child.

I recommend checking out the child in ER/urgent care to be sure ...Read more

Whatever is comfy: Infants do well in normal room temperatures is they are appropriately dressed.Normal air conditioned settings (70-75) are well tolerated.Babies that have a moist neck are sweating off excess heat & those with goose bumps are showing that they feel cold. Simple use of t-shirts, onezie & caps will provide adequate warmth for most. ...Read more
