As baby gulps it down, you either burp it up or will deal with is exiting the other end. The digestive tract is just a long tube. Some parents swear by mylecon( gas drops) but its not magic. It may combine some bubbles but it doesn't stop the process. ...Read more

What should I do if my baby doesn't burp?

What should I do if my baby doesn't burp?

Don't Panic!: I have seen many a new parent drive themselves crazy trying to "get a burp" out of their baby. If the baby has swallowed excess air, he/she will usually burp shortly after feeding, especially when put in a more upright position. But, if there is no burp, don't panic! worst case, baby may spit up....Nothing more dangerous or uncomfortable than that. ...Read more

What can I do if my baby will not stop throwing food?

What can I do if my baby will not stop throwing food?

Try another approach: If a baby throws food, he may just be playing. When he is really hungry, re-approach him and eat with him, to show that food is for eating. If he throws food because he is angry, the parent can "disappear" and watch the baby from behind, and then come back to try again a few minutes later. When a baby is truly hungry, he is less likely to throw the food away. ...Read more

What to do if I am 23 weeks pregrant and worried my baby has microcephaly?

What to do if I am 23 weeks pregrant and worried my baby has microcephaly?

Ask your OB: I'm not sure why you have this specific concern. This is something quite easily measured on ultrasound. Ask your OB how your baby measured out. If indeed it was small size for dates, then you never rely on just one reading and get multiple ones over the weeks to assess interval growth and get serial accurate measurements. It's easy to do and if still small would refer for higher level ultrasound. ...Read more

What should I do if my baby is not burping?

What should I do if my baby is not burping?

Don't panic: Some babies just don't burp. But, first make sure that you are giving them the opportunity to burp. Try different positions with gentle back massage/tapping to encourage the air to "rise up": on your chest while you are in a sitting position, and also lying across your your lap. If your child doesn't burp and is otherwise happy and comfortable, then don't sweat it...The gas will come from below. ...Read more

My 3 months baby hasnt-pooped-in-2-day-is-breast-fed what can i do ??? Help

Breast feeds: Breast fed infants can go a little every feed or overflow a diaper once a week. If it is soft when they go i don't worry about it. Babies fuss for a lot of reasons including gas, so irregularity is not always the cause. If stools are getting hard, i often try full strength prune juice, 1oz once or more/d.Takes about 3d to get things moving. ...Read more

What should I do if my 10 months baby will only take a bottle when sleeping?

What should I do if my 10 months baby will only take a bottle when sleeping?

Break the habit: The kid is old enough to try a sippy cup or use a straw for feeds. If s/he wants a bottle, put water in it until the kid rejects it, but thirst will drive consumption of at least a minimal amount. I find it better to teach a kid to eat first thing as they wake up, so the bottle doesn't become a security friend while trying to sleep. ...Read more
