If the child is healthy, I wouldn't worry about it. Today is only Monday. Chances are by Thursday your parents will be feeling better. Fact is, children will get sick no matter what. Their parents could just as easily bring something home and cause them to get sick. Not that I would let the sick person cuddle with the baby all day long, but being in the same house should be fine.View Thread
My son had something similar on his leg after he was born. The pedi wasn't concerned about it and it's since faded so I can hardly notice it. However, if it's continuing to rise above the skin, I would try and get in to the dermatologist sooner. Just to be on the safe side. Good luck!View Thread
Sorry you are going through this. Hopefully he will grow out of this phase and start sleeping through the night soon. Does he use a paci? The suck relex is comforting for babies. If he doesn't want to eat at night, maybe he just wants to suck? I am a big believer in swaddling, but maybe your son doesn't like to be swaddled? Have you tried not swaddling him at night? I heard someone say not too long ago (probably on this site!) that some babies just are not good sleepers. Good luck!View Thread
My son is now 3 months old. But when he was a newborn I noticed he got hiccups frequently after feeding. Haven't noticed any in probably the last month so I think it's just something they will grow out of. I have never heard of a remedy for hiccups.View Thread
Just curious, who told you you were overfeeding him? I ask because my son sometimes eats 4 oz every two hours. We just had his 2 month appointment and he was healthy and weighed the "right" amount for his age. Personally, if the only thing that will comfort your baby is a bottle. Then I think he is hungry and should be fed. I always thought babies and children don't know how to overeat like adults do. But I may not be correct. Thanks.View Thread
From my experience, most kids hate tummy time. So I wouldn't stress about that too much and just do what you can. I had my son to his 2 month check up yesterday. The pedi suggested we do more tummy time to keep his head from having a flat spot. He is our second so we just have not had time to do much tummy time yet! I told her I have him up on my shoulder a lot and she said that was good as well.View Thread
I agree with the others. She is not feeding her child properly. Whole milk is NOT a substitute for formula/breast milk. If she can't afford formula she should get on the WIC program. Talk to her if you can. However, I would report her to child protective services for child neglect.View Thread
