? colic: This may be a form of colic versus food intolerance. Both can involve lots of gas and discomfort. If your baby is breast fed, then i would remove all dairy form your diet for a trial of a week. If taking formula, would try one that may be gentler.

Nasal saline...: It sounds like your little one has a cold. Nasal saline drops (and occasional suctioning of secretions if they are making it difficult to feed/sleep) can help her feel better. Try a humidifier in the room where she is sleeping. If she develops fever (38) or seems to be in pain, see her pediatrician. Seek medical care immediately if she has any increased work of breathing or flaring of nostrils. ...Read more
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
