My 5 Month Old Grunts
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 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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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

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?
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
