Any 3 DAY old: who is vomiting needs to be seen. It may be nothing, but at this stage you don't even know for sure that his "tubes" are all working, and it would be a tragedy if he were to aspirate while sleeping on his back. At least call the pediatrician and discuss. Good luck! ...Read more

My 6 month old baby might have swallowed a little beer. 2 hours later he started vomiting. Is it the beer or something else?

My 6 month old baby might have swallowed a little beer. 2 hours later he started vomiting. Is it the beer or something else?

Hard to say: The alcohol in beer can trigger dangerously low blood sugars in an infant. Whether this could have anything to do with the symptoms is unknown without testing. It is not cute for a baby to have access to any alcoholic beverage under any circumstances. Since they only drink what is offered to them, someone needs their head examined. In my state, law would require a report to CPS. ...Read more

Ive had constant bloating that comes out in the form of constant unbareable burping making me almost puke sometimes because so much air comes out?

Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without examining you and your symptoms warrant evaluation by a physician. It is possible that you are swallowing air as a nervous habit and that comes out as burping. You may consult this site for more information on this topic: https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/gas-and-gas-pains/in-depth/gas-and-gas-pains/art-20044739
Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.

Swallowing problems: Give a good history to your Dr and let team examine. Then I would ask your Dr and team what they think is going on, what tests need to be done and what treatment do they recommend . Describe in great detail what happens and then ask them what the problem is and what you should do about it. I note daytime sleepiness and would ask about testing for obstructive sleep apnea. ...Read more
