What do I do if my baby is still waking in the night to feed?

What do I do if my baby is still waking in the night to feed?

Reset the clock: After the newborn period babies can slip into the habit of becoming trained nighttime feeders.One of the ways to interrupt that pattern is to offer a small amount of water to older babies. That will quench their thirst but not perpetuate the habit of eating at night.Some babies will become upset so be prepared the first several nights to "go through withdrawals" as you reset the hunger time clock. ...Read more

What should I do if my baby will not sleep in a crib?

What should I do if my baby will not sleep in a crib?

Check crib: Make sure that crib is comfortable, that the room is not too cold or too warm, no scary things around. The next steps will take a few days but you need to do it. Put the baby in the crib. Leave the room. Let him/her cry a little bit. You can return to the room, try not to pick the baby up. No yelling, no screaming, no body punishment, just make it clear that the baby has to sleep in the crib. ...Read more

Worried?: Sudden difficulty sleeping is often due to anxiety at your age. Are you worried about something? Do you feel like you have a good plan to deal with the issue? Have you discussed it with a parent or school counselor? Writing down what you are worried about and adding possible solutions prior to bed may help you relax. If not, you may need to speak to a doctor for help. ...Read more

I was drinking and breastfeeding at the same time to my 23 w baby is this going to affect her in anyway , and now she running fever what can I do ?

Breastfeed alcohol: If your 23 week infant is running a fever and there is no obvious cause then contact your pediatrician asap. As far as alcohol and breastfeeding, there is the possibility that the baby could appear lethargic since alcohol is a depressant. It also depends upon the amount of alcohol that you may be consuming. If it all costs i would refrain from excessive alcohol intake while breast feeding. ...Read more

Bowels: I'm not sure i quite understand your question -- but if you need to have a bowel movement and don't go to the toilet, this could disturb your sleep. The natural choice would be to take care of your bowel needs and then go back to bed. If having bowel problems all day or into the night, that's another issue and needs to be addressed with your doctor. Be well. ...Read more

My four year old will not go to sleep when i put her in bed. She is up all day with no nap what can I do for her?

Sleeping Challenges: Unfortunately there is no simple answer to your question. This is a common problem in children but i would need more info to be specific. Children need a schedule and routine before bed (bath, story, and time to connect emotionally etc). She should sleep in her own bed and possible her own room. Does she have night mares? Do you have any other concerns about her behavior, if so see your peds. ...Read more

Mastitis: While more common in breast feeding women, it does occur in non lactating women as well. Its usually comes from a nipple duct and travels up into the breast. It may be from excessive nipple play, poorly fitted bras or incomplete treatment of your mastitis leading to chronic colonization of the duct. ...Read more

There : There is little information given to pret6end a medical case scenario can be thought . I think that you ought to consult the right person the right way. Still doctors are the ones that evaluate signs and symptoms of disease and unfortunatelly medicine continues to be more an arty than a science . Chronic fatigue syndrome is a difficult diagnosis to make and issually based on ruling out everything else . Treatment then is also not easy . There are a number of requierements that should be fullfilled for the diagnosis . I hope you find the right answers soon , and get to fell better. ...Read more

Hello, i have a 9 days new born and my preocupation is that she's not waking up to be fed. I wake her up every 4 hrs and it takes me 15min to do so.

Let Baby Sleep: As new mothers, we all have the same fear. If she is a full term newborn with no medical problems, she will wake you at night when she is hungry. Let her sleep, it helps develop good nighttime sleeping patterns. You should wake her every 3-4 hours during the day to sleep. Happy Zzzzzzzz and Congratulations on your baby! :) ...Read more

Why am i swearring and yelling at my wife if she tries to wake me when I am sleeping ? If she tries to wake me i will swear and yell but i don't remember any of this in the morning.

I : I do not know the answer to this. Are you a combat veteran or have you bee involved in a horrifice or life threatening trauma. If you are being woken from nightmares that can lead to violence. If you have post traumatic stress disorder and you are quick to startle and move into the fight or flight mode, that can have a similar result. You also could be inbetween sleep and wake cycle. The only way to get an accurate diagnosis is to get a sleep study. Please talk to your doctor about this. ...Read more

How do you know when your not a virgin? The guy never went in all the way because it hurt to me and i stopped him every time. I never really opened my legs well at least not wide enough for him to get in all the way.

How do you know when your not a virgin? The guy never went in all the way because it hurt to me and i stopped him every time. I never really opened my legs well at least not wide enough for him to get in all the way.

Hello, : Hello, what an interesting question. And oddly enough, one that is not easy to answer. Traditionally, loss of virginity was defined by the penetration of the vagina by the penis. However, loss of virginity can also include genital to genital contact without vaginal penetration by the penis. This would make sense if you consider the sexual interactions of lesbians. You describe that he did not "get in all the way". Even the traditional definition of loss of virginity refers to penetration (it doesn't have a specifier like deep penetration). It is obvious from your question, that whether or not you are a virgin is important to you. I strongly recommend that if virginity is important to you that you not engage in activities that are likely to lead to this type of sexual intimacy. For instance fondling breasts or genital fondling is interpreted by some guys to mean that you are engaging in foreplay that may lead to intercourse. It sounds from your description that your interaction was consensual. I really recommend that if you are not ready for intercourse (and frankly it doesn’t sound like you are) that you set firm limits with your partner (and yourself). What you described doesn't sound like a pleasant experience. Why don't you allow yourself to mature and wait until you are physically, mentally and spiritually ready for this step. ...Read more
