My baby seems to have lost a bit other voice due to her cold... Is this normal?  Is this a bad sign? What should I do?

Hoarseness with a: Cold is pretty common. It means her vocal cords are irritated.The best treatments are good hydration, saline nose drops, & suctioning her nose with a bulb syringe. Use a humidifier if your pediatrician okays it. If she has a recital temperature of 100.4 or above, isn't nursing/drinking well or her symptoms worsen, take her to her doctor. Otc cough/cold syrups are not useful & may be harmful. ...Read more

My two months old baby is vomiting lot.  Even when burped also some vomit is there. What can I do to prevent this ? Is this a normal thing?

Depends: Your baby may not be tolerating formula or breast milk and also may have smaller stomach. Would recommend trying soy or elemental formula and feeding half the amount given but feed on a more frequent basis. If this persists see your doctor. ...Read more

Is it normal for toddlers to be afraid of water? Also what can I so for my toddler if he wets the bed a a lot?

Is it normal for toddlers to be afraid of water? Also what can I so for my toddler if he wets the bed a a lot?

Typically-developing: toddlers can have fears. If he's scared of hot or rushing water or water on his face, run his bath before he gets in the tub. Get 2 small watering cans, one for him & one to rinse his hair with. Fill it from the sink. Put a bath cloth over his eyes. Get tub crayons, paints & toys only for bath or pool. Bedwetting is normal till age 5, if he's never been dry for 6 mos. Pull-ups are ok at night. ...Read more

Y my newborn baby can't sleep at nights? Can this be bc of reflux? What can i do?She coughs sometimes and today she vomited is it a cause of concern?

Y my newborn baby can't sleep at nights? Can this be bc of reflux? What can i do?She coughs sometimes and today she vomited is it a cause of concern?

Could be: Babies in the first few weeks should sleep a lot (20 hours per day) so if your newborn is not sleeping then yes, I would be concerned. If your baby is under a week old it is a little early for reflux unless the baby is overfeeding. Cough can be a sign of reflux but generally I think cough in a newborn should be evaluated by a doctor sooner than later. So my advice is to see your doctor soon ...Read more

My cousin who is a 14 yr old can't control urination while laughing. She urinates the whole of it. Why does this happen and what to do about it?

Giggle incontinence: Great to help out your cousin. She has well recognized form of incontinence. 1)best for her to empty her bladder as often as it is convenient, especially before situations where she knows she might laugh. 2)try kegel exercises. 3)consult pediatric urologist who will have experience in managing this problem with medication. Ritalin (methylphenidate) or Concerta are classic meds for this problem or anticholinergics. ...Read more

My baby is 1 month old and I think she sleep a lot. How much sleep is healty? Should I have to take her to a Neurologist to run tests on her?

My baby is 1 month old and I think she sleep a lot. How much sleep is healty? Should I have to take her to a Neurologist to run tests on her?

Normal: Babies in this age group "sleep all the time". This is a common statement by new mothers. This is quite normal in a one month old child. The variation in sleeping hours is quite a lot - anywhere from 18-22 hours! The way you tell if there is anything wrong with your baby is when she is awake how is she responding? is she sucking well? is she feeding well? is she gaining weight?If worried see a doc ...Read more

Concerned about my 4 month old son. He fusses and cries a lot when his in my room, but does not do this in other rooms. What could be the problem?

Hard to know: What is different about your room? Is there a different temperature, noise level, anything uncomfortable for him? Does he spend time there when he is already tired and fussy? Does he fall sleep in his own crib? See if you can find any common feature. Talk with your doctor if not better. ...Read more

Our 3-week old seems to be spitting up a lot after each breast-feeding ... No fever, but we're wondering what nourishment, if any, he's getting?

Our 3-week old seems to be spitting up a lot after each breast-feeding ... No fever, but we're wondering what nourishment, if any, he's getting?

Gaining weight?: Many babies spit up some of their feedings. This may be due to overfeeding or just him gulping down air along with the milk. Burping frequently can help the latter. The most important thing is whether he is growing. Doctors use charts to plot babies' growth. If his weight and length are going along the curve, he's doing ok. http://www.cdc.gov/growthcharts/data/who/grchrt_boys_24lw_9210.pdf. ...Read more

What type of formula can I give my baby because he throws up with the one he drinks now which is enfamil i would lie to know what can I do to help my baby or what formula can he drink other than enfamil

If : If your baby is having trouble tolerating a milk based formula, regardless of the brand, then you may want to consider switiching to a soy based formula and monitor for improvement.Soy based formulas are sold in any store that sells "regular" or milk based formula. If this does not help, then your baby maybe dealing with a reflux issue, and would need to be evaluated by his or her doctor. Take care. ...Read more

My daughter is 14 months and doesn't talk a lot or walk what is wrong?

Developmental concrn: At 14 mo most kids are at least pulling to stand and cruising along furniture.Some don't take independent steps until 15 months. Most at that age jabber but say only a few words, but understand more than they use.I would bring these issues up at your next office visit and see if this needs to be explored further. ...Read more

My 10wk old baby has a really strong gag reflex and often vomits due to this during/after feeds atleast 2 out of 6 feeds. What can I do? Is this bad?

My 10wk old baby has a really strong gag reflex and often vomits due to this during/after feeds atleast 2 out of 6 feeds. What can I do? Is this bad?

Mgt: There may be an issue with her coordination in swallowing the formula. In addition, reflux may contribute to this problem. Smaller volume feedings at an angle of at least 30 degrees, may help. I would advise feeding the baby with your provider observing these symptoms. A virtual consult is also available. ...Read more

Preschooler recently started crying a lot at%a0school, she was out for a week due to laryngitis, could that have something to do with the crying? Help

Hard to tell: Young children can be very emotional from all sorts of things. They don't always handle change easily. Talk with her about her activities at preschool- what does she like to do? Are there any things she doesn't like? Be calm and encourage her to go to school and have fun. If it persists, talk with her teacher and see if there is anything else going on (new change in sched., new students, etc). ...Read more

Reflux: Babies must breathe through their nose. If i had to bet the baby is having silent acid reflux that is burning her nose. Using 1-2 drops of nonmedicated nasal saline drops for babies after each feeding can help. Are you breastfeeding? Try going on a dairy free diet yourself. On formula? Ask your doctor about switching to soy or elemental formula. For any infant breathing issues call your md. ...Read more

Is it normal for a 3 week-old baby to spit up a lot and sweats without a fever?

Is it normal for a 3 week-old baby to spit up a lot and sweats without a fever?

Yes: Infants can have mild reflux whereby their stomachs connot always accommodate the amount of breast/forumla inside their tummies. This is due to a weak muscle/sphincter & slower emptying. Smaller/shorter feeds offered more frequently and upright positioning may decrease this trend. ...Read more
