My 5 month old grunts all day long - not associated with a bm. Is this normal?

It depends: Often infants will grunt as they develop speech and control of their voice. Some infants grunt due to underlying problems such as heart or lung problems. You may want to have your doctor evaluate the grunting. You can help your doctor by making a quick video of the grunting, with your phone or camera, and bring it along with you to your doctor's appointment. ...Read more

I gave coke to five month old?

I gave coke to five month old?

Soda to a 5mo old: Don't worry, there won't be any lasting harm if it was just a one time thing. They'll be a little gassy and burpy, but that's it. I probably don't even have to say it, but soda is not a good idea for any baby (and the same goes for toddlers and kids). At 5mo old their endocrine systems are still developing and the effects of that much sugar and caffeine are not good. The same goes for juice! ...Read more
