This is related to diet and she may be sensitive to cow's milk. Try weaning with baby foods and give pure water to drink. Alternative bottle is nutramigen. ...Read more

Doctor can evaluate: If a mild cough and sniffles are just from a mild cold, babies usually do ok without special medications.

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 you'll get your rest. ...Read more

Debrox: There are softening drops we can prescribe as Debrox and ceriminex which can help the wax clear. Usually wax buildup is asymptomatic, however and if he's crying and in pain, he may still have an ear infection! Has he had a recent cold? Does he console easily? Do Motrin or Tylenol (acetaminophen) ease his pain? History of ear infections? Contacts with smokers? ...Read more

Yes: This is a normal an fairly common local reaction that will improve over the next week. You could gently massage the area and apply cool compresses.

Unfortunately,: Unfortunately, this episode is also consistent with a "staring spell" or absence seizure. With the frequency of the seizures that you describe your daughter will most likely need to be started on a mediation. An eeg is a very sensitive test but does not always show epileptiform activity in between seizures. I would probably start your daughter on an anti-seizure medication to help prevent seizure activity. ...Read more

Water: Offer your baby water, whole milk, breast milk if you're still nursing and he/she will decide how much water to drink. There's no "right" amount of water that a 1 year old should drink daily. Juice really isn't needed by kids...It's basically empty calories. It's better to give the kid some fruit. I hope this helps! ...Read more

Is it ok if my one year old son don't eat very much during the day. All he wants to do is snack. Is this normal?

Yes: Most kids at that age will have one good meal, one sketchy, and one awful. Making foods available especially during the "good meal" will make sure that there is a good amount of vitamins and nutrients. Snacking is fine, with coalescence into meals as he gets a little older.
