My 1 month year old baby is having constipation what should I do?

Breast or formula ?: Breast fed infants can go a little every feed or overflow a diaper once a week. If it is soft when they go i don't worry about it.

Why is my 1 month old have bloody poop?

Why is my 1 month old have bloody poop?

Depends on situation: Bright red blood will mean it came from near the exit. Maroon colored from further up the intestines. Many infants that push out a bulky or hard stool will create a scratch in the inside of the anus that will add blood in streaks on the surface of the poo, or small puddles within it. The doc can examine the baby and confirm the finding & advise you on ways to avoid the problem in the future. ...Read more

My 9 month old baby has tears when he is breastfeeding?

My 9 month old baby has tears when he is breastfeeding?

He has tears..: ...When he breast feeds, and when he doesn't breast feed too. Every time he blinks, a tear washes across his eye. If he is actually crying when he is feeding then something is bothering him (maybe throat or ear pain) and you should get him checked out. If it is just eye tearing and he is otherwise well, it might be from a little nasal congestion , so don't worry about it too much. ...Read more

My baby who is 8 months old is constipated?

My baby who is 8 months old is constipated?

Real constipation?: First, decide whether a baby has constipation or has normal stools that come out only every few days. A baby has constipation if he has to push hard to get his poop out, even if the poop itself isn't hard. If poop really is firm, then the baby is constipated even if he doesn't need to push to get the poop out. A glycerin suppository is one of the first treatments for a constipated older infant. ...Read more

Is constipation in babies normal? My 1 month old girl has constipation and doesn't poop every day and her stomach feels hard?

What is constipation: In a one month breast fed baby no poop for a few days is normal as long as the poop in not hard.

My 10 month old baby have smelly armpit .is that normal?

My 10 month old baby have smelly armpit .is that normal?

No, not normal: Bad body odors in infancy is not "normal". Is there just odor, or is there any type of associated rash or redness? Does the odor smell sweet, musty, rotten, or any other particular description?. If no rash, I'd start with using an antibacterial soap diluted in water and wash well twice daily. If ANY redness or whitish discharge present, I'd be suspicious for yeast and have that checked out by doc. ...Read more

My daughter is 1 year old and last two weeks she is getting constipation. What to do?

My daughter is 1 year old and last two weeks she is getting constipation. What to do?

Diet: Make sure diet includes fiber rich fruits and vegetables. I also recommend pear juice for constipated kids, just until the constipation resolves and then just as needed afterwards. I'm not a fan of a lot of juice as an every day thing, as they generally have a lot of sugar and very little nutritional value-kids are better off eating the fruit. ...Read more

My 1 week old baby boy is becoming periodically fussy and makes grunting groaning and half cries. Almost like hes in pain. He's formula and breastfed.

May be very normal!: If your baby is feeding very well and has soft stool, in addition to having some very quiet peaceful moments he may be just perfect. This is not uncommon for the littlest guys. They are brand new to the planet and first learning about their own bodies. If unsure, take him to your pediatrician. ...Read more
