My 4 month old baby gets histerical once I put his infant carrier in the car. He won't stop crying turning blue and shaking. What should I do ?

Keep him safe in car: At four months he is too young for a real temper tantrum. While he may get agitated by the car seat's restrictive environment, his safety in the car is paramount for him to be transported in any other way in the car. You may want to have someone else sit beside him not to make him so lonely. ...Read more

Ate cookie with molasses. Scared I dropped cookie crumbs and my 4 month old possibly got them on hand/ into her mouth. Could she get infant botulism?

Possible: It is possible to get botulism but it is unlikely. Watch out for symptoms 18 - 36hrs after ingestion. Symptoms in infants are lethargy, weakness, poor feeding, weak cry. Constipation is usually the first symptom to occur. There is nothing for you to do now except observation. If your baby seems to be floppy or develops any of the above symptoms, you need to go to the nearest ER. ...Read more

My four month old baby is on combination feeding .formula feeds(enfamil) 4 ounces three or four times a day plus breast feed is it too much?

Formula &breast fed: The amount of formula your baby is getting is not too much, I can't judge how much he gets from breast feeding, if the baby is gaining weight within the expected range, being content & happy then you're on the right track. Your pediatrician will discuss the baby's growth during every well visit. You can discuss your concerns with him. Good luck, enjoy your bundle of joy. ...Read more

When my 9 month old baby cries he will begin to cough, is this normal? Sometimes it seems like it takes his breath away.

When my 9 month old baby cries he will begin to cough, is this normal? Sometimes it seems like it takes his breath away.

Some babies or: children have very sensitive cough and gag reflexes and may be triggered by very benign things like crying. As long as there is no wheezing, difficulty breathing or color change, this doesn't sound like anything too concerning in and of itself. However, if it persists, you may want to discuss this with your child's pediatrician. ...Read more

My seven month old baby cries when she moves her arm, her brother says he pull her hand what should I do?

My seven month old baby cries when she moves her arm, her brother says he pull her hand what should I do?

When to get checked: This is a time to get your baby checked. Okay to go see pediatrician or minor er and ask for an xray and tell them why. Babies have soft bones and laxity to their joints. It is easy for a baby and small children to have a joint dislocation and or fracture. Of course the child can only tell you by crying. Her brother will also feel better if you get the baby evaluated. Good luck. ...Read more
