Why is my baby crying in his sleep?

Why is my baby crying in his sleep?

Discomfort/Fear: We all cry for similar reasons: fear, discomfort, and hunger. If you know your baby's tummy is full, the most common reasons are teeth or bad dreams (depending on their age). What can you do about bad dreams? Not much. But, teething can be helped with some Ibuprofen before bedtime. I also would check your baby's diaper, clothes, and bed to make sure that there is nothing causing them discomfort. ...Read more

Can my baby nap on her tummy?

No: "back to sleep" is designed to help lower the chances of sudden infant death syndrome (sids) or crib death. Babies who can't roll over are at a much greater risk of sids if they sleep (or nap) on their tummies or sides. So, until they can roll over well, put them "back to sleep.". ...Read more

My boy baby is 1year old from when I can start using pillows for him during sleep?

My boy baby is 1year old from when I can start using pillows for him during sleep?

Not Safe Yet: The use of pillows is not recommended for children under the age of 2 years old due to the risks of suffocation and other injuries. Bed pillows can easily entrap and smother an infant or small child. It is also best to wait until child has graduated from crib to toddler bed where movement is not as restricted. A firm and small (airline-sized) pillow is best for a toddler. ...Read more

She should be fine: but you are right to be careful with a baby. It does not take too much to hurt a baby's brain but it would be obvious. Given that she was laughing and I assume she is fine now.....she will be OK. ...Read more

One year old daughter crying for breast feed in night. Eats mild solids well. Not drinking bottle milk . Expects me always around her, else she cries?

Possible teething: She may be crying at night for another reason. At a year of age she is conceivably teething thereby giving her pain. Try giving her Ibuprofen or tylenol (acetaminophen) at bedtime and see if that soothes her.If you want to stop the night time feeds another thing you can try, is to let her cry it out. Go to her when wakes up, sooth her but don't pick her up. After 3-4 nights and youll get your rest. ...Read more
