? colic: This may be a form of colic versus food intolerance. Both can involve lots of gas and discomfort. If your baby is breast fed, then I would remove all dairy form your diet for a trial of a week. If taking formula, would try one that may be gentler. Also in the US, we are using probiotiics for upset tummies in babies. See if you can find Gerber colic drops, or the equivalent. Hope this helps Read more

6 months: The majority of babies will sleep through the night by 6 months. We consider 6-8 hours as sleeping through the night. 1 month old babies have no concept of night and day. You can try to keep him awake a little more each time he is up and very slowly he will sleep more at night. Read more

Newborn: The baby is only 1 month old and it is common for very young babies to want to be as close to their moms as possible. You can not "spoil" a young baby. You can try to swaddle and put down to sleep at least for naps a little at a time. Read more

My 1 month old precious baby boy will only sleep if he's being held. If I rock him for 30mins & slowly put him down he'll wake up & cry till I hold him again. Then he cries every 2 hours for feeding. What should I do?

My 1 month old precious baby boy will only sleep if he's being held. If I rock him for 30mins & slowly put him down he'll wake up & cry till I hold him again. Then he cries every 2 hours for feeding. What should I do?

Deep breaths: Have a consistent bedtime & routine: read (yes, now) in low light, feed, wipe out his mouth with a soft cloth, then put him on his back in his crib in his own room, drowsy but awake. It won't hurt him to cry before he learns to self-calm for sleep. See www. Halosleep. Com/ for safe swaddling. This will? Risk of sids, consolidate night-time sleep by 4 mos. & prevent "trained night crying" @ 5-6 mos. Read more

Is it possible for a 1 month old baby after 4 hours of sleep her diaper to be dry, this is her first time happening like this what can it be?

Yes: Sometimes these super newer diapers hide the moisture so well you can't tell by touch. In the hospital we weigh them. I expect pee at least every 6 hrs. Read more

Is it ok for my 1 month old to sleep in my arms all night long?

Is it ok for my 1 month old to sleep in my arms all night long?

Love them to death: The kid should sleep alone with initial swaddling for up to a month. Afterwards, placement in a onzie without blankets, pillows or bumpers is needed to prevent suffocation if they tangle up in bedding. Holding the baby all night is dangerous and could lead to suffocation or other injury. If the infant survived, it would face a 400% higher rate of sleep disorder for the first 4 years. Read more

My baby is 1 month old and I think she sleep a lot. How much sleep is healty? Should I have to take her to a Neurologist to run tests on her?

My baby is 1 month old and I think she sleep a lot. How much sleep is healty? Should I have to take her to a Neurologist to run tests on her?

Normal: Babies in this age group "sleep all the time". This is a common statement by new mothers. This is quite normal in a one month old child. The variation in sleeping hours is quite a lot - anywhere from 18-22 hours! The way you tell if there is anything wrong with your baby is when she is awake how is she responding? Is she sucking well? Is she feeding well? Is she gaining weight? If worried see a doc Read more

Will my 1 month old baby's spine be affected by sleeping on a contoured pillow? He sleeps on this while he is next to us in the living room. Thanks!

Will my 1 month old baby's spine be affected by sleeping on a contoured pillow? He sleeps on this while he is next to us in the living room. Thanks!

Sleep environment: His spine is not going to be harmed but I am concerned about a 1 month old sleeping on a pillow for other reasons. All infants should sleep on their side or back on a firm surface without pillows or on couches etc to minimize the risk of sids (sudden infant death syndrome). I review every infant death in our county and unfortunately sleep environment is the biggest risk. Read more

My 1 month old baby has a reflux but sometimes when she wakes up she coughs is it because she didn't burp before sleeping? Reflux causes cough right?

My 1 month old baby has a reflux but sometimes when she wakes up she coughs is it because she didn't burp before sleeping? Reflux causes cough right?

Yes it can: And most babies have reflux, they outgrow it as get bigger, you had the answer in your question: burp your baby well after feeding, if wet burps are a problem, try reflux precautions: thickening feeds, feeding smaller amounts more frequently, raising the bed 30 degrees, feeding the baby at 45 degree angle, etc, enjoy your baby Read more

How long do two to four month old babies sleep?

How long do two to four month old babies sleep?

6-8 hours: A four month old baby can sleep from 10 pm to 6 am. Up until four months a baby will usually be up once between 10 pm and 6 am. If a baby is not sleeping through the night by 4 months then I discuss with parents how to achieve that. A baby sleeping in your room or in your bed may not easily sleep all night. Read more
