Sick Baby Sleeping Through Feedings
3 months baby sleeping longer at night 4-5 hours and feeding less than usual, around 3 1/2oz- 4oz, she used to take 5oz.. She breastfeeds?
May be ok: As long as a 3 month-old baby is happy, interactive, gaining weight, not fussy; and has no ill signs such as fever, vomiting, diarrhea, or rashes, then he may be normal (because babies change their eating and sleeping habits as they grow). A 3 month-old baby can sleep 6-7 hours at night. The amount he breastfeeds is usually unknown (isn't measured). The doctor can re-check his weight and length. ...Read more

My 7yrs old daughter had asthma and coughing tonite she is using steam Vicks with water.But my 6months baby sleeping with her..Is that ok for my baby?
Maybe,maybe not: I have never been fond of the "vapor" stink as treatment for anything. I find the idea that stinking up the room with a noticeable fume is more likely to aggravate a cough than help it at any age. There are some decongestant effects, but the irritant value is similar to paint fumes. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Three to four months: Babies are capable of one period of deep sleep (3-4hrs) per 24 hours starting at birth and generally drift in and out of lighter sleep states for the rest of their day. By 3mo their brain waves include mature sleep patterns and longer sleep is expected.

Sleep consolidation : Through self-regulation occurs between 1-4 mos. If there has been a consistent bedtime & bedtime routine ( rocking, reading, feeding, wiping out baby's mouth with a soft cloth after the last feed) & baby is put in his own bed in his own room, drowsy, but awake. Allow him 5 min. To self-calm if he awakens. At 6 mos. Old, your going in & making eye contact will create a " trained night crier.". ...Read more

When should babies stop being swaddled? My 2m baby startles too much and wakes up but the swaddle allows her to sleep through the night.
That varies: New babies don't sleep through the night because they need to awaken to feed. As they get bigger, they sleep longer. Most babies can safely do an 8 hour stretch when they're several months old; some do it a little younger, some a little older. Babies are people; what happens one way in one happens a bit differently in another. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
