My baby is 4 months old and moves a lot when sleeping, is this normal and if so when will it stop?
Don't expect it: Random movement of the arms and legs in both the waking and sleeping periods are expression of a normal nervous system.The brain sends out random messages to the motor nerves to flex or extend to preserve muscle mass and tone.Without these events, the muscles would weaken like yours would if you were placed in a cast or splint. ...Read more

My baby is a week old is his milk is coming back up out his noise when I am burping him...Why is this happening?
All babies spit up!: First , all babies spit-up. They eat only liquid, their tummes are not very big, so when they burp, it's usual for some to come out with the burp. The anatomy of a newborn is difernet than that of adults, even older kids. Their esophagus lines up a bit different with the back of the throat and back passage to the nose, so when stuff gets in their throat, it is very likely to come out the nose too! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Usually I can rock 4 month baby to sleep, but now he is very fussy, won't take the pacifier and only falls asleep on my nipple? Why? And what to do?!
Possible teething: At that age, it's possible he is starting to teeth, and is using your nipple to soothe his aching gums. You don't want to get into a routine of him using you to soothe himself at bedtime - it's a difficult habit to break. Try massaging his gums, use a cool teething ring, or try a dose of ibuprofen if he;s really fussy. Likely this will pass with the eruption of some teeth!! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Commonly there is sound sensitivity and some change in taste. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
