Fiber and low iron: If formula fed, you can switch your baby to a low iron formula. You can try 2-4 oz of fruit juice (apple, prune or pear juice) or 1 tsp brown sugar mixed with 1 oz of water 2-4x/day. Try pureed prune or pear if your baby is eating solids. A glycerin suppository for babies works also but don't use it too often. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Give it in a nipple: Babies 2-12 months old are sometimes prescribed oral antibiotics (examples: amoxil, (amoxicillin) keflex, zithromax). One can "feed" the antibiotic to a baby by putting a nipple in the baby's mouth and dropping the medicine into the nipple. Another way is to mix the antibiotic with a few teaspoons of breastmilk or formula, and then give it in a nipple the same way. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Distraction: Anybody who has done a nebulizer knows it's a noisy, scary thing. It vibrates, and sounds like a jet engine. Plus there's steam, and while all this is upsetting the baby, you're going to go cover her face with it. Most babies will calm after awhile as they realize when all this happens their breathing gets easier, but at first, simple distraction is the only trick, with music, tv, puppets, etc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

See answer: Duphalac(lactulose) is given as follows: 1 or 2 tablespoons (15-30 ml) once or twice a day. It may cause some cramping.

Agree, but..: While i agree entirely with dr noland, i would like to emphasize her last point. Not all fevers need to be treated. Fever is serving a purpose for your child. Your immune system works better at fighting infection at higher body temperature, and the germs causing the infection, be they viruses, bacteria, etc don't survive as well at higher body temperatures. So unless child very uncomfortable, let them run the temp! ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
Try to find cause: Many babies develop colic between the 3rd and 12th week of life. Try to find what is precipitating the event. What are you feeding and how are you feeding. Is your baby crying and swalloing air? What kind of water are you using? Are you sterilizing? The best milk for a baby is moms milk. Watch your diet. Consult your doc to find the best course of action. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If not, you doctor will want to do some testing first before even considering clomid (clomiphene). There is no age limit, but it does increase the risk of multiples, especially if you are young. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

How long does a babies gliceran suppository take in affect the baby is 5 weeks old and constipated
A : A glycerine suppository only takes a few minutes to melt, but it may take a few more hours for the child to pass a stool. Constipation is the passage of a dry, hard stool - not necessarily the absence of daily stool. If you suspect your child may be crying because he is ill, call your child's doctor. That being said, constipation is common in infants and there are a couple things you can do to help. 1.) give pear or prune juice - 1oz/age in months/day so in your case 1 oz. Not only does prune or pear juice have sugar which can help soften bms, but also has fiber (notice the gritty texture when you drink it?). This does not mean that you should be feeding your baby juice as a part of his regular diet, but it's ok in daily small amounts to treat constipation. 2.) if juice does not work, then you can try a glycerine suppository which you can buy over the counter. Just cut a pea-sized piece of the glycerine and place it in the baby's anus to lubricate the hard stool. This is not meant for daily use, so if you find that your baby needs a suppository in order to have a bm despite dietary changes, discuss with your child's doctor. 3.) do not use mineral oil, laxatives or enemas. These methods are not safe for infants. 4.) finally, if constipation is persistent and not improved with any of the above recommendations, be sure to contact your baby's doctor. There are some very rare underlying disorders such as hirschprung's disease, cystic fibrosis or hypothyroidism that can cause chronic constipation. ...Read more

My child has a fever. Gave him 10ml nurofen at around 4pm. How long before I can give him a suppository (empaped)?
Anytime: Since empaped is a different type of medicine (acetaminophen) it could be given at the same time as nurofen (ibuprofen). Some who want ti stack these meds (use both) will alternate them on a 4 hour schedule. I find this is unlikely to be helpful. Fever is a natural body protective mechanism & increases circulation of natural antibodies/white cells during illness. I just use ibuprofen. ...Read more
