Not always possible.: At only 3 months old, if your baby is wheezing, it could be viral bronchiolitis or asthma or both.

How do you know if a 3 months old son is suffering from asthma ?

How do you know if a 3 months old son is suffering from asthma ?

Consider other cause: 3 months of age is very young for asthma. Usually parents think this because baby is coughing or has noisy breathing. At 3 months the usual causes are bronchiolitis or gastroesophageal reflux. Less commonly there may be a congenital problem like laryngotracheomalacia, a vascular ring, or a cyst in a large airway. Clearly your infant may need to be seen by a pediatric allergist or pulmonologist. ...Read more

Likely fine: Kids with the immunodeficiency disorders are often picked up by the age of 4-5 months due to recurrent and significant illnesses like bone infections and meningitis.Probiotics often allow for a good balance of beneficial gut bacteria but they do not boost anything. Having a happy gut can help you tolerate minor gut ailments and viruses with less symptoms. ...Read more

It's probably not: Constipation is very uncommon in infants this young. It's normal for infants to strain, turn red in the face and even cry during bowel movements. This is called discoordinate stooling, an inability to relax their external anal sphincter at the same time they bear down to pass stool. This may last up to 4 mos of age. If your child is feeding normally & passing soft stool, it's not constipation. ...Read more

Short simple answers: A 3 yo is curious and their questions can be difficult when you let the issue of genitals/sex cloud the picture. At that age a short simple answers is the best. Don't launch into lengthy discussions. "that's how it is".Expect her to ask the same ? repeatedly (they don't take notes).After she gets to 7-8 the questions can be answered in more depth. ...Read more

Can my 6 month old baby use cold and cough syrup if so what do u recommend for him concerned mother

Can my 6 month old baby use cold and cough syrup if so what do u recommend for him concerned mother

I wouldn't: The nasal & airway structure of young infants is quite different from older kids or adults. Studies have shown no benefit of cough/cold preparations to kids under 6. They also reflect a large number of ER visits and poison control calls from these meds. If you need something to do, keep track of fluid intake.That is more important overall & more likely to help baby. ...Read more

My mom was diagnosed copd, she is 70. She is in stage 3, what can I do to help her. How much time do we have. She has never smoked.?

Multiple things: First you should discuss your moms specifics with her doctor. The COPD stage is not precise enough to say how long one might live. With good care of the COPD one can live a long time. Treatment entails a number of things that a patient should seek, include smoking cessation, use of inhaled medicines to decrease symptoms, a flu shot yearly, pneumonia vaccine and pulmonary rehab. Oxygen if needed. ...Read more

I've got a 4 month old baby, who is my first.  How would I know if he has meningitis?

Inconsolible: The 4m is usually in a routine of feeding, play, sleeping behavior that is predictable. U are the best gauge of that behavior because u live with it. With meningitis, the germs irritating the meninges cause a terrible headache & increasing pressure that makes them inconsolable & their soft spot bulge in the upright position.Feeding declines & fever goes up.U will know u must have it checked out. ...Read more
