My 3 month baby is keep been sick and she got a cough also she keeps sneezing also she has been crying and winging more than usual?

How is she eating?: If she is nursing or taking her bottle ok and wetting her diapers normally, you have very little to worry about. Babies with colds are best not treated with cold and cough medications. The side effects can be much worse than what you are treating. If she stops feeding or wetting, she needs to see her doctor. ...Read more

Crying (Definition)

Infants have a cry reflex that is a normal response to some stimuli, such as pain or hunger. Older children and adults cry for emotional reasons such as pain, fear, sadness, or frustration. Premature infants may not have a cry reflex, so they must be monitored closely for signs ...Read more

My 6 month old baby has a cold with a very deep cough he wakes up crying everytime he coughs i've given him neurofen and panadol (acetaminophen) he has no temperature?

URI: Coughing while sleeping is very common in infants. The nasal secretions drip to the back of the throat, causing a cough. As long as there is no persistent difficulty breathing your child should be fine. No over-the-counter medications are recommended for this. You can try to use a bulb suction and nasal saline prior to feeds if your child begins to eat less. ...Read more

Beginning stages of the croup. Some stridor and seal barking cough only when crying/coughing. Raspy. No fever. What can I do? 14m baby.

Symptomatic measures: Croup is a viral infection of the upper airway. Antibiotics will not help. Often humidified air--running the shower--or cold air will help. A lot of fluids also. If the stridor is severe or worrisome evaluation by the pediatrician is indicated. Sometimes one dose of a steroid is given to reduce the inflammation/swelling of the airway. Keeping the baby calm until this runs its course will also help ...Read more

My baby 6 months old with cough , nasal obstruction , low grade fever , she even can not sleep and always crying , does she need antibiotic or antitussive?

See your doctor: This could be merely a common cold with the symptoms you are describing. Saline nose drops and suctioning gently with upright positioning and steamy baths may help to weather this illness. The cough may also represent a phenomena known as bronchiolitis-head cold with some wheezing. Some docs may recommend a nebulizer with medication used in asthma care for the deep cough/wheeze. ...Read more

What to do when my 11mos.Old babies turns blue when crying?

What to do when my 11mos.Old babies turns blue when crying?

See your doctor: Many infants between 9 months and 3 years old will have breath holding spells where they turn "blue" and can faint from holding their breath. These spells occur in response to pain or anger - always. Some kids will have some blueness around the lips (not the lips themselves) when crying and this can be normal. I would have my child seen to be sure it is a breath holding spell & nothing concerning. ...Read more

How can I get my infant to stop crying whenever I put him down?

It's OK to let cry.: If there is no other reason for the crying that needs to be treated, then it is definitely ok, and actually recommended to let him cry. You are the parent, and your child needs to learn at an early age that he cannot manipulate you. Trust me, you will be much happier in the long run, and your child will be better able to adapt to different situations. ...Read more

Inconsolable babies crying nonstop. Do you have any tricks to stop this?

Infant Colic: Sounds like infant colic when a bay is inconsolable. You may try motion, like going for a car ride, or basket on top of a washer or secured swing. You may try changing the diet to a digested formula like neutramagen just in case there is a tummy ache, and if you have not already done so, have the baby checked by a doctor just in case there is a medical reason for being unhappy. ...Read more

A few sessions with a therapist could help you understand the issue and get past the frustration. Being raised by parents who refused to acknowledge or validate normal childhood emotions can have this effect.
