How Much Should My 7 Week Old Baby Weigh
7 week old baby weighs 13.4lbs. His birthweight was 9.2lbs. Everything else is fine. Should I be worried he is eating too much?
Maybe, maybe not: When the heat is on and the air in your home is dry, a vaporized and or humidifier is helpful. In cases where the infant is very congested, vaporizers can also help. However, if use increases the humidity too high, you have some risk of dust mite, mildew and mold growth. I recommend keeping the humidity between 35-45% and use saline nose wash to aid with babies congestion.
My 7 week old baby has both an ASD and VSD. VSD is 3-4mm big. Do you guys think it's safe for her to fly right now?
Sounds minor: I would defer that question to your regular doc who has had a chance to review the case and examine the patient. From your description I don't think its a problem.See 1 more doctor answer
Whenever my 7 week old baby drinks her milk fast she coughs, is it bc she chokes? Is it something to worry or it happens? Does reflux causes choking?
Yes it can: But if too much milk comes out of the bottle. Also it can cause baby to choke make sure the nipple hole is not too large try to keep the head upright while feeding and burp after each ounce
My 7 week old baby has a rash that looks likes someone got a red pen and dotted her, what can this be? She also has a cold that she had for 2 weeks
Viral rash?: Many viruses (even cold viruses) can have associated rashes. However, in babies under 2 months of age I wouldn't wait a long time to find out what's going on. If she has been acting fine otherwise (eating well, not fussy or excessively sleepy), you can wait a day or two and see if it just fades away. If not, have your pediatrician look at it on monday to determine it's nothing more.See 1 more doctor answer
Should I be worried my 7 week old baby is sick sneezing out yellow snot. But I suction her with the sucky ball and got dark yellow snot

My 7 week old baby developed a small red rash on her face back of her neck and upper part of her chest what can it be? Is it something to worry about?
Usually baby acne: Timing and location suggest baby acne.A simple process about half of babies will have, peaks at 2 mo and usually fades without treatment at 3m. While pregnant, baby floated in moist conditions like face cream and the placenta removed maternal hormones. Deliver/clamp the cord and baby must deal with left over hormones and dry air. This is likely a normal process, check with doc if you wish.
Hello, my 7 week old baby has started spitting up clear fluid between feeds. She has also started crying in the evening during feeding when I wind her?
Babies spit up: Many babies spit up intermittently during their first couple of months. As they get out of the newborn period (first 4 weeks), they also start beign awake more often, crying more often. It is important at this age group to stablish a care provider so they can monitor the baby weight gain and make sure the baby does not have reflux that needs to be treated.
I changed my 7 week old baby girls nappy today in the bright sunlight and noticed some very fine light hair in the pubic region, I hadn't noticed it before. Is this usual?
Hair everywhere...: Besides the palms/soles and inside of oral/vaginal cavity, we have the fine hair everywhere from birth--normal. In certain areas of the body such as underarms and pubic region, the so called sexual-hair growth occurs in response to hormone increase during puberty which is darker and coarse in texture. Based on your description, your baby hair is normal. Congrats on new baby. Good luck.See 1 more doctor answer
My 7 week old baby has a blocked nose what can I do to unblock it also she's very constipated and has a cough what can I do to fix these problems?
Nasal wash: At 7 weeks the primary cause of congestion and cough is the environment. House dust, fragrance, perfumes and cleaning products all leave scents that irritate a babies nose. A good nasal clean out with saline can remove much of this irritant load, but removing the offending irritants helps more in the long run. Air particle filters can also help.Constipation is a separate issue, no room to cover it.
My 7 week old baby is constipated I give her lots of water& have tried colopsyl drops, prune juice, grip water, suppository & water & brownsugar please help?
Evaluation: Is indicated. Is the baby a male/female? Did the baby have a meconium stool in the first 48 hrs of life? If not, the baby needs to be evaluated. Is the baby eating well and gaining weight the baby will benefit from seeing the doctor to ensure the anal opening is in the proper place, is of the proper size and may need a biopsy to r/o a disease called hirschsprung dz.See 1 more doctor answer

Colic not always gas: Colic is often related to a general response normal in many babies related to the stage of development. Your baby is about the right age to have it. Jello water would not be advisable and or necessarily help. They may be other things going on so a call to your health care provider might be helpful.
