Insomnia in a 4-month-old girl

08/06/20 10:23

Hello, we have been fighting our daughter’s insomnia for 3 weeks, the most she sleeps during the day is 5 minutes. Otherwise, she whines, sticks her fingers and fists into her mouth. Could it be teething, even if her gums are not swollen? Thank you

Hello, it’s possible it could be the teeth, but unlikely at her age. What is more likely is that she could be suffering from colic. It also depends on how she sleeps at night, how she eats, whether she calms down in your arms or not, whether she has a temperature, diarrhoea, vomits significantly more, whether she is losing weight. If you are breastfeeding, do you have enough milk ? What changed 3 weeks ago? That’s why, I can’t give a clear answer to your question. It would be better for you to visit your daughter's paediatrician and arrange the next steps directly with him/her.

Newborn and fluids

08/06/20 13:54

Hello, I have a 3-week-old daughter, I only breastfeed, I’d say I have enough milk, I’d like to ask if I should add boiled baby water between breastfeeds so she has enough fluids during these high temperatures? Sometimes she wants to be fed during the day and after 1-1.5 hours, at night she lasts 3-4 hours without breastfeeding, her nappies are quite wet. Show more

Infant rejects fruit supplement

08/06/20 13:52

Hello, I have a 7-month-old son. He was fully breastfed for 5 months, then we slowly started with solids, first with vegetables, then I added meat, then he ate fruit. He ate well. In the last 3 days or so, he has started to refuse all fruit, but he does eat the meat and veg. I'd like to specify that he ate bought baby food. Does it matter much if he doesn’t want fruit, or should I wait a while and try it again? Show more

Teething in a toddler

08/06/20 13:48

Hello, I have an 18-month-old son, every time he teethes it’s a bit of a nightmare, he cries a lot, he’s more tired, he eats less, sometimes it is associated with a temperature or temporary diarrhoea, we are used to it. But I wanted to ask, he still has 2 molars to go, on one side the gums where the molar is meant to be are already swollen, but there’s no sign of the tooth. How long before they burst through? And can I somehow make it easier for him? We try rubbing on Calgel sometimes, but he won't let us touch his mouth so much now? Show more
