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

Is it ok to let my 2month old baby sleep through 6hrs at night without a nighttime feed if she doesnt wake herself?Will she still get enough calories?
Probably fine, : As long as she is gaining weight well up to this point. Most babies to sleep longer stretches after about 6-8weeks of age and after they reach 10lbs. As long as she has a good appetite the rest of the day and is making plenty of wet diapers, I'm sure she is fine. Enjoy the extra sleep! Make sure you let her doctor know she is sleeping well and they will check her weight at her next well check. ...Read more
