Fussy with a cold: At 8 months, especially during the winter time, it is common for infants to be getting upper respiratory infections. They have lost all the immunity they got from you through the placenta and have to develop their own immunity by getting infections. As long as there eating well, you don't have to do much for a cold. Just suck out the excess mucous. If the child remains fussy, have her ears checked. ...Read more

My daughter is 2.6 yrs old her wt is 9.35 kg, she is a fussy eater how can I feed her?

Fussy eater: That is a tough question. The first question would be what does she drink? Many times fussy eaters prefer to drink their calories. If she is filling up on juice and milk then she may not be hungry for real food. Also the average child needs to see something 10 times before trying it. Keep offering.

My 3 month old daughter is gassy and gets fussy at times.  What is the best OTC medication to ease her discomfort?

Risk of Harm: The risk of doing harm by giving an infant a medication for this far outweighs the potential benefit. I recommend f/ u with her primary doc to determine if there any dietary adjustments that should be considered (ie, formula type, lactose sensitivity, etc). Most important is that baby is feeding regularly and continuing to grow despite any flatus. Good luck. ...Read more
