Noise Quiet Room
1 month old awake for 12 hours, won't sleep - warm bottle, swaddle, dark, quiet, car rides, lay on my chest, singing, rocking... I'm worried...
Sleep: Don't worry. If there was a problem, you baby would show other symptoms like crying, fever, vomit, rash, etc. If the only symptom is you baby is awake, there is nothing you can do. Most infants will naturally fall asleep when they are tired. Most take 2 naps in the day, and 12 to 15 hours at night, but just like adults, they can go off schedule. If 24, go check her out. ...Read more

Normal sleep pattern: OK, if your baby had a serious problem, it would have more symptoms than being awake, like cry, fussiness, fever, etc. If the only issue you have is staying awake, your baby is likely just off schedule. That said, but it to sleep around an hour earlier than typical to make up for its lack of sleep. If your baby does not sleep after 24 hours, go see your doc. ...Read more

Possibly: If the volume is too loud with head phones or ear buds like an ipod etc. Then you can very definitely damage your hearing esp. High frequency. The volume should never be so loud that it causes you to not hear someone trying to talk to you or that causes ringing in ears immediately afterwards. Rock concerts can be esp. Bad for this - wearing ear plugs is probably the best way to prevent damage here. ...Read more

Dietary causes?: Since we don't digest the fiber we eat, intestinal bacteria will feed on it and make gas as a byproduct. Another reason for gas is lactose intolerance, in which one can't digest the lactose (milk sugar) he eats. Again, bacteria will feed on it. Drinking lactose-free milk solves that problem. Gas can also be due to infections in the intestines (such as giardia), or other malabsorption disorders. ...Read more
I listened to loud music and played in a loud band as a kid. Now I have difficulty hearing conversations in moderatly noisy rooms. Can i heal this?
Nerves don't fix: The damage you do to the fine hearing mechanism from barotrauma is not like a laceration that will heal if you stitch it.Once you injure nerve cells, they are not forgiving. Chances of any improvement other than by selective amplification (hearing aids) is unlikely. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Waking startled feeling w/gasping breath, sit up, throw blankets off. At times, covered in sweat, w/lingering feeling of not able breathe.Sleep apnea?
Agree - #1: B"sd sleep apnea a prime consideration. If not that, then peri-menopausal hormonal disturbance would be my second thought. Additional hormonal considerations would be catecholamine (adrenaline) factors. Cardiac conditions should also be considered (paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea). Variant asthma a more remote possiblity. ...Read more
Studies done on the : impact of ambient noise in Neonatal Intensive Care Units resulted in recommendations to remove radios/other music, turn down the volume on monitors & avoid plunking items down on closed warmers. So, turn off the ringer, hold baby with head up 30 degrees & look at him when feeding. Put him face-up in his crib in his room when drowsy, but awake, to self-calm to sleep.
