My 7 month baby is teething and cry while in sleep and chew objects.Wot medicine we should give him for easy teething and relieve gums?

Wait; no benzocaine: There are many soothing remedies. I have to disagree with my colleagues here. Whatever you do, avoid using numbing gels like anbesol or orajel. Anything that contains Benzocaine can precipitate a rare but dangerous reaction called methemoglobinemia. http://www.fda.gov/forconsumers/consumerupdates/ucm306062.htm. ...Read more

My 3 yr daughter grinds her teeth a lot when she sleeps. Is that normal? She's totally fine and doesn't exhibit any discomfort while sleeping or awake

My 3 yr daughter grinds her teeth a lot when she sleeps. Is that normal? She's totally fine and doesn't exhibit any discomfort while sleeping or awake

Not a big deal: It is not uncommon for little children to grind their teeth in sleep. You should not be worried about it at this time. As long as she does not have any discomfort, she is fine. As she gets older and if she continues with this habit, you may consult a pediatric dentist to see if a night guard would be helpful. It is not practical to make that at such early age as the children won't be compliant. ...Read more

10 week old sometimes avoids eye contact (particularly while being held). Other times, he coos,smiles n tracks well but mostly while lying down. Help?

10 week old sometimes avoids eye contact (particularly while being held).
Other times, he coos,smiles n tracks well but mostly while lying down. Help?

Development varies: slightly with each infant, and if he is making good eye contact while lying down, cooing and smiling, it sounds like he is on track. It may be that when he is upright, there are so many more sights to see that his eye contact with you is intermittent, compared to looking at you vs a boring ceiling when lying down. Keep talking and interacting with you baby, but share concerns at next check up. ...Read more

Is it high needs infant or colic? Fussy all day n night and never seems satisfied. Not eating normal and just flat out miserable. Help, please!

Fussy baby: A pediatrician's evaluation and input are necessary. It could be formula-related, food- and medicine-related if breastfeeding, lactose intolerance if gassy and spitting up, acid reflux if regurgitating or vomiting to name a few. Tense moms tend to get colicky infants - try being calm. Take a break - have a close relative or a close friend take over for minutes or hours to rest &catch up on sleep. ...Read more
