Ensure the baby is well fed and is warm. Have the baby examined by a qualified professional. ...Read more

No worries: If gaining weight well and feeding regularly well during the day, then there is nothing to worry. If he wakes up, feed him, but if he "decided" he was ready to sleep more during the night, then great! enjoy the sleep. ...Read more

8 month old baby twitches while sleeping is that normal or should i be worried?

8 month old baby twitches while sleeping is that normal or should i be worried?

Dreams: She is likely just dreaming, causing her to twitch which is the most common cause of twitching like this. I know you're probably worried if she's having seizures or something more serious like that. There's an entity called Infantile Spasms but she doesn't quite fit the criteria for that either. If she starts truly flexing her upper body, at the next or waist, take her to her pediatriian ...Read more

My baby is 7 weeks old. For the past three days he is not sleeping at night. But sleeps in day time. Everything else normal.anything to be worried?

Wake during day: This kid has flipped his day/night pattern. Time to start over.Feed when waking up, never allow more than 2 hours of sleep in a segment during the day before waking to feed.Do not re-feed before sleep,sucking means they like sucking, not hunger.At night, never wake to feed,but feed as soon as he wakes. After a few days the kid should re-set his sleep wake pattern. ...Read more

My eight years old is always urinating in bed while asleep,,is this normal or something is wrong?thanks

My eight years old is always urinating in bed while asleep,,is this normal or something is wrong?thanks

Not quite normal: A child at least 7yr old, with primary enuresis (meaning he's always been a bed-wetter), can do a trial of DDAVP (desmopressin) tablets, after being seen by a pediatrician to make sure there isn't another medical cause for bed-wetting. Bed-wetting runs in some families, and is a developmental problem that children will outgrow. DDAVP (desmopressin) can reduce or prevent enuresis while parents wait for the child to mature more. ...Read more

My two year old sounds like a dog whimpering while trying to sleep. Is this normal? He hasnt been sleeping well for two weeks.

Is it normal for my newborn to be constantly eating at night?

Is it normal for my newborn to be constantly eating at night?

If you teach her to: Newborns should be feed while waking, changed, entertained until tired and put to bed without re-feeding during the day. No mare than 2 hours should be allowed for day naps before feeding. At night they are only fed if they wake up,changed and put down. Any nap over 2 hrs during the day flips the day night pattern.Feeding as they fall asleep, guarantees 4X more sleep problems for the 1st 4 yrs. ...Read more

Is it normal for a almost 4 month old baby to sleep 6-9 hours straight? My Breastfed daughter started sleeping more lately and I thought they had to eat more frequently.

Feel lucky: By three months many have a more mature sleep pattern.They usually do not go 9 hrs without a brief stirring but they may not awaken to eat if they consume enough during the day to meet their needs. Some parents see this happen within the first month if they don't feed as part of the sleep ritual.A kid who learns to go down without a full stomach doesn't scream for a feed to resettle in the night ...Read more
