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 would be nursing  for a while and almost full, if she poops after, she wants to nurse all over again, is it normal to eat that much?

Hunger ??: You will find that a baby enjoys sucking due to the pleasure sensors in her lips. Anytime you place something close, or when able to get her fingers close, she will suck.This does not mean hunger.The rapidity of this pleasure sucking is different from sucking to feed.Feed her as she wakes, change her and give her a pacifier.You can turn her into a snack feeder that feeds every hour.Not a good life. ...Read more

My daughter gets migraines a lot. She is sensitive to light during this time and vomits.. Should i worry about tumors?

My daughter gets migraines a lot. She is sensitive to light during this time and vomits.. Should i worry about tumors?

Neurologist: I'm guessing from your age that your daughter is probably around 13 y/o. In all likehood, the diagnosis of migraines is appropriate for your daughter. However, a ct scan of the brain would rule out the remote possibility of an intracranial abnormality, including a tumor, causing her symptoms. Consider a consultation with a neurologist for a full work up, and medication advise to help her symptoms. ...Read more

My 15month old baby won't drink milk in a regular cup only in his bottle still how can I take that away? Is it normal for him to have bad dreams?

My 15month old baby won't drink milk in a regular cup only in his bottle still how can I take that away?  Is it normal for him to have bad dreams?

Put water in it: Infants are pattern driven and find change difficult. If you put water in the bottle it becomes boreing but may fill a self settling need. It will also keep him hydrated until he comes around. If you put the good stuff in a hard nose sippy cup and leave a few empties around the house as reminders, he can decide to change onn his own terms. ...Read more

Wet burps: As gross as it is this can happen in infants & results more from the force of their wet burps than anything wrong. Babies have no sense of social awareness & are not aware that such a maneuver grosses us out. They are fully capable of doing this anytime. If the kid is willing to eat again within 10-15 min you can be assured they are not sickly. ...Read more

I had my baby 3 weeks ago and gave it up for adoption i'm still moody at times and no appetite worry a lot is this normal will it pass?

Post partum: Postpartum mood & anxiety symptoms/disorders are common after delivery. Usually the postpartum blues pass & one can overcome it with little support. However other forms may need clinical intervention. In your case, with the added factor of giving ur baby fro adoption, i would suggest seeing a psychiatrist for a more thorough evaluation & consequently recommendations for intervention. Feel better. ...Read more

Hello, i have a 9 days new born and my preocupation is that she's not waking up to be fed. I wake her up every 4 hrs and it takes me 15min to do so.

Let Baby Sleep: As new mothers, we all have the same fear. If she is a full term newborn with no medical problems, she will wake you at night when she is hungry. Let her sleep, it helps develop good nighttime sleeping patterns. You should wake her every 3-4 hours during the day to sleep. Happy Zzzzzzzz and Congratulations on your baby! :) ...Read more

Is it normal to not feel my baby move for a day?

Is it normal to not feel my baby move for a day?

Depends: It depends on how far along you are. Most women feel movment first at 18-20 weeks. From there until about 30 weeks fetal movements may not be regular and you may not feel them every day. After 30 weeks, you should feel your baby move every day. If you are ever worried it is easier and safer to get checked then to stay at home wondering. ...Read more
