Baby's voice hoarse from crying it out. Can this cause any damage?

Baby nodules: There is no proof that 'crying it out' causes permanent damage to the voice. However, you should make sure that baby is well-hydrated otherwise. This phase shouldn't last very long, though, so seek the advice of your pediatrician if you can't establish healthy sleep patterns with baby. ...Read more

I had a huge quarrel, crying, raising voice, trying to calm downbut...Pregnant38 weeks could it harm baby please answer?

No harm: Maternal stress is not going to hurt your baby if it's short lived (a couple of days) and you otherwsie have the support around you tha tyou need right now. Stress in your system actually can help the baby mature more quickly. However, you are nearing delivery and need to care for yourself and others should be pampering you right now. Hormones are raging, so take a deep breath and relax ...Read more

I have been advised to let my baby cry herself to sleep. I took the advice and now, she has a coarse voice from crying. Is that really advisable?

I have been advised to let my baby cry herself to sleep. I took the advice and now, she has a coarse voice from crying. Is that really advisable?

A real problem: Trouble is that your anxiety is being perceived by the baby. She needs reassurance by your loving activity around her. Try to show that her environment is safe and if she is old enough to understand, try telling her that "mommy needs her sleep too". It is love that wins the day. Your anxiety must be extinguished----not easy to do but is the "art of motherhood". ...Read more

My newborn baby keeps crying, I think she is constipated, what can I do to stop her pain. Please.

Crying vs pain: Please do not get into the habit of equating crying with pain. Babies cry for hours every single day. This is how they communicate, stretch out their lungs, get you to come and hold them, get you to feed them. Make sure you are burping well, swaddle baby so they feel more secure, make sure baby getting enough to eat. If questions about normal stool patterns and whether she is constipated, ask doc. ...Read more

If I relax, I hear voices crying and talking to me. If I pay attention for exemple studying, this doesn't happend. Are these hallucinations?

Possibly, or not: Hallucinations are sensory experiences without external stimuli. Illusions are sensory experiences that come with external stimuli that are misinterpreted by the brain. I can't say which you're having from your question alone. Sometimes people who are grieving hear voices like this.

Newborn strains to poo but not constipated, normal poo. To a point where he starts crying. Also grunts alot at night bedtime. Is this normal? Thank you

Normal: Newborns can make a lot of funny noises, including grunting, especially with gas. Having a BM can be a lot of work for a little one-- weak abdominal muscles, lying flat...so you can help him--put him in a sitting position (gravity), pull his legs up (imagine yourself trying to poo lying flat with very weak abs!) Rub his tummy, and a warm bath might help. If not better, see your pediatrician! ...Read more

My 4w newborn HATES tummy time. She can't go beyond 5 minutes without crying uncontrollably. I don't know what to do. I think she torticollis.

Not Unusual: Many newborns don't like tummy time until they're able to
move around and even turn over. It's not critically important now
Torticollis is a neck muscle stiffness that responds to physical therapy. If you feel your child has a head tilt or can't move the neck freely, see your doctor soon. The sooner it's recognized the faster it responds ...Read more

Newborn crying all day. No symptoms of being sick. Very fussy during breast feeding.

Newborn crying all day. No symptoms of being sick. Very fussy during breast feeding.

It gets easier with: Time to interpret your baby's cries. Unfortunately, when babies cry they swallow air. The smooth muscle of the intestine isn't synchronized yet to pass the air out. If baby seems gag when starting to nurse, he may need a burp. I'll ask my arabic-speaking daughter to help explain the " football hold" or "colic carry" to you to help baby pass gas. When all else fails, allow your baby to self-calm. ...Read more

My newborn (almost 1 MO) hasn't pooped in two days and seems to be in pain. Crying and drawing his legs up. Eating and peeing fine. What to do?

Normal in some: Your typical breast fed baby can have a little poo smear every feeding or one giant blowout every 7-10 days.Formula babies go more often and daily. If soft, I don't consider it constipation. Babes do lots of leg drawing and fuss for no particular reason, but the process may help push food along. As long as baby wets every 6 hours or more I would consider things within the range of normal ...Read more

Try keeping baby elevated (head up), during feedings and for 20 minutes or so after feedings. Be sure not to overfeed. There is a possibility that there may be a lactose or protein intolerance, as well. Try limiting your dairy intake. If these things don't help, please contact your pediatrician! ...Read more

What at-home techniques relieve epiphora in a newborn baby? My six-week-old has watery eyes all the time, even when she is not crying. Her doctor called this epiphora. Is there anything I can do at home to help this go away? .

What at-home techniques relieve epiphora in a newborn baby? My six-week-old has watery eyes all the time, even when she is not crying. Her doctor called this epiphora. Is there anything I can do at home to help this go away? .

Epiphora: Epiphora (poor tear drainage) in the newborn period is extremely common - 2-4% of all newborns will have it. It is usually due to an obstruction of the tear duct (newborn tear ducts are tiny!) and 95% of all cases get better on their own by the time the child is 1 years old. Two things that can help are for you to gently massage the tear ducts (inner eye corners) periodically and to use a clean wet washcloth to wipe away any occasional crusting from the tear buildup. Other than that, you will just have to wait until your child grows out of it. If your child is in the 5% that do not improve by 1 year, then your child's doctor will recommend an ophthalmologist (eye specialist) who can do a simple procedure to open the ducts. If the eye becomes red, swollen, or develops green drainage, call your child's doctor since it may be infected. ...Read more
