My infant boy has picked up an ugly cough. How can I treat it? 
He's 23w (19 corrected) 2nd vaccines done 2 days ago. No fever or vomitting

First have your baby examined at his Doctor to make sure that he does not have any signs of infection. If symptoms are viral then normal saline for the nose and humidified air can be helpful. If you are breastfeeding that is the best medicine. ...Read more

My 6 wk infant has had runny seedy green poos since weaning him onto formulae. No fever or blood and isn't vomiting. Would it be safe to try soy?

My 6 wk infant has had runny seedy green poos since weaning him onto formulae. No fever or blood and isn't vomiting. Would it be safe to try soy?

Their stools are very runny and seedy, and colors range from yellow to green to brown to orange. The colors we don't like are white, red and black. These sound like very healthy, normal poops, so i don't think a formula change is even needed. ...Read more

My infant son vomited while he was asleep. Does not have a fever. What should I do?

Monitor the situatio: Infant will often have the equivalent of a wet burp in light sleep stages. This can reflect their tendency toward gastoesophageal reflux after a good feeding & is not necessarily a sign of illness.
