My 7 Week Old Baby Is Drooling
7 week old baby bubble drooling is it normal? Can a reflux cause her to drool? Or it can be because she sucks her fingers?
Maybe, maybe not: When the heat is on and the air in your home is dry, a vaporized and or humidifier is helpful. In cases where the infant is very congested, vaporizers can also help. However, if use increases the humidity too high, you have some risk of dust mite, mildew and mold growth. I recommend keeping the humidity between 35-45% and use saline nose wash to aid with babies congestion. ...Read more

7 week old baby is often sleeping 4, sometimes 5 hours at night before waking. Should I wake him up after 3 hours to make sure he's feeding enough?
No: A normal, happy, growing 7-week-old baby follows the saying, "Never wake a sleeping baby." Normal babies at this age who happen to sleep through the night will just eat more during the daytime. Normal babies at 3 months of age can sleep through the night, meaning a 6-7 hour stretch without needing a feeding. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have a 7 week old baby who wakes up sounding congested and snorts but fine throughout day. Could she be allergic to our dog? What would symptoms be?
Environment: At 7 weeks the primary cause of congestion is the environment. House dust, fragrance, perfumes, detergent or cleaning products all leave scents that may not bother you but irritate a babies nose. A good nasal clean out with saline can remove much of this irritant load, but removing the offending irritants from babies life helps more in the long run. I doubt the dog has any impact at all. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My 7 week old baby has a rash that looks likes someone got a red pen and dotted her, what can this be? She also has a cold that she had for 2 weeks
Viral rash?: Many viruses (even cold viruses) can have associated rashes. However, in babies under 2 months of age I wouldn't wait a long time to find out what's going on. If she has been acting fine otherwise (eating well, not fussy or excessively sleepy), you can wait a day or two and see if it just fades away. If not, have your pediatrician look at it on monday to determine it's nothing more. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
