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

Hi my 5 month old baby just grunts and cries like she is in pain with her tummy.dr changed her milk but still doing it. And being sick. What could this be?

Need more info: It's best to have your pediatrician re-assess the situation- they are going to have all the pertinent details that are needed: How long has this been going on? How long ago was the milk changed? Has there been any change to the symptoms? What are the baby's bowel movements like? How well is the baby growing? The answers to these plus a good physical exam are necessary to adequately assess the prob ...Read more

My 2.5 month old baby is always grunting and it sounds like she's straining her voice. She also pushes her legs straight out. What does this mean?

My 2.5 month old baby is always grunting and it sounds like she's straining her voice. She also pushes her legs straight out. What does this mean?

Normal events: At this age infants make a wide collection of sqeaking & grunting sounds that have no significance. They have rubbery, pliable airways that vibrate to make additional sounds & they have no social skills, they don't care if the noise they make is odd or not. The legs placement response is also normal until 6 -9 mo. When it becomes less frequent or dissapears. ...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

Five month old stooling four times a day. He is at 60% for weight and 90% for height, no apparent weight problems. Could this be malabsorption?

Five month old stooling four times a day. He is at 60% for weight and 90% for height, no apparent weight problems. Could this be malabsorption?

May be normal: If your baby is breastfeeding, four stools daily is entirely normal. If on formula, this may still be normal. If the stools are odorous and loose, it may suggest a lactose intolerance if he/she is on a dairy-based formula, however. In any case it does not sound like malabsorption as his growth is entirely appropriate at this time. Do talk to your doctor about your concerns. ...Read more

Let me rephrase my five month old does not seem interested in trying baby foods purees not solids sorry..What age should they start to be interested?

Too early: Babies do not need solids in the first year.Formula or breast milk are total nutrition. As a culture, we generally begin offering solids as a puree as soon as they sit up,which is about the time their tongue thrust fades. Six months is the earliest I start and I let the kid decide when they are ready.You may offer an item a dozen times before they decide to try it. Be patient. ...Read more

Started giving my five month old some water and finely  blended pawpaw once a day, hasn't pooped in 2 days ? Is that the cause?

Continue Observation: Papaya (paw paw), is a nutritious fruit. Unknown if baby is breast or bottle fed. Normal babies can go a few days without stools.

My five month old only will eat when he drowsy or sleep he has been on reflux medication for awhile and he doesn't have big appetite what could it be?

Normal feeding?: You mention reflux medication and i see on the profile "hydrochlorothiazide." i assume that's your medication and not your baby's. If he is breastfeeding or formula feeding well and is gaining weight, then there is no concern. I was not clear from your question if you meant he was not having a big appetite for solids or for his milk? ...Read more
