10 week old exclusively breast-fed baby, started having frequent green stools with mucous, immediately after his 2 months vaccinations. Normal ?

Color changes in : Infants' stools as the intestine becomes colonized with new bacteriae, until they become "adult" brown. See pediatrician for green liquid stools, especially with fever, mucus can be benign, from swallowed saliva or mucus if he has a cold. If he is fretful, not feeding or gaining weight well, check for malabsorption or food allergy. It's very unlikely that immunizations are related in any way. ...Read more

12 wk old has stuffy nose and decreased feedings for 2 days. Today she projectile spit up after 2 feedings. Plenty of wet diapers and very happy.

A cold: Babies do not eat as well when they have a cold. They cannot breathe through stuffy noses so cannot eat well. They also lose their appetites when ill. When a baby has RSV they can develop reflux. As long as your baby is happy, taking in enough fluids, and is breathing well you can wait this out. A few drops saline will help nasal stuffiness. Call Pediatrician if any worsening. ...Read more

14 mo old boy: chest cough-6months. Noisy breathing since birth. Red, watery eyes-6months. Proj vomit 2 wks. 10 ear infctions. No allergies. Why sick?

ENT evaluation: A history of frequent ear infections and noisy breathing makes me concerned about large tonsils and adenoids. An evaluation by an ENT would be helpful. The cough and vomiting may be related to an ear infection, although it is difficult to know for sure without examining him. ...Read more

3 yr old with persistant cough, rsp rate 40, stridor, hard slightly painful distended belly, diarreah, but is behavior fine. ER or is DR next week ok?

ER: He/she is breathing too quickly and has stridor both which indicate respiratory distress. Take the 3 year old to the ER. You might want to consider calling 911. The belly distention is from swallowing too much air and the diarrhea along with the other symptoms may cause dehydration. ...Read more

Why does formula runs/seeps from infants nose 15 min after feeding. Healthy. 7 days old. C-sec. Apgar 2 & 9?

Why does formula runs/seeps from infants nose 15 min after feeding. Healthy. 7 days old. C-sec. Apgar 2 & 9?

Reflux-see Dr. : If baby isn't coughing or having difficulty with feeding, he might be having reflux. Milk remains in the stomach thanks to the ge sphincter, a muscle that encircles the top of the stomach-opening when food comes down, and closing to keep the food in the stomach. If it is 'loose' milk can silently come up the 'food pipe' or esophagus. Keep baby upright in your arms 30" after feeds, and see dr. ...Read more

Our son had 6 mos. checkup and head is 46 CM (93rd %), same as chest. Went up from 43.5 CM at 4 mos (75th). Weight now 18 lb, length 69.85 cm. Ok?

Yes: The most common reason for dramatic changes in head size that I see are errors in measurement. If he is developing normally, I would recommend discussing your concerns with his doctor at his next check up. If not, a sooner visit is in order. ...Read more

1yr old boy. Temp 38degreesc. Decreased appetite, sleepy but plays. Had 12mth shots last wk. Worry? Wake at night if temp high?

1yr old boy. Temp 38degreesc. Decreased appetite, sleepy but plays. Had 12mth shots last wk. Worry? Wake at night if temp high?

Hard to tell: The temperature of 38c (100.4 f) is not really concerning, but i would pay attention to how he feels. If he seems to be less energetic, not eating well, or having trouble sleeping, he should be checked by the doctor. At his age, it can be difficult to tell if he is coming down with a virus, or ear infection or some other illness. ...Read more

My 7 week old started drooling is and his appetite has decrease is that normal?

My 7 week old started drooling is and his appetite has decrease is that normal?

May be normal: There will be normal ups and downs in appetite at this age. Make sure he is still eating regularly and acting satisfied. Drooling may be due to increased stimulation of his mouth with his hands. Make sure his nose is clear so he can breathe through it (or he will keep his mouth open to breathe and drool more)- use nasal saline and a bulb syringe to suction it out whenever needed. ...Read more
