Answer . If you can't afford to go to the doctor then phone your pharmacist or go into the pharmacist and tell them how old the baby is and they will recommend something.
place your mouth over your baby's nose and gently suck the mucus out of his/her nose, as for the cough it will pass, even quicker if breast feeding.
No. I would not recommend that unless of course your baby has a cold and is in need of childrens medicine. Your baby is crying for a reason whether it be hunger, thirst, in need of a change, uncomfortable, teething, not feeling well, colic or in need of attention and scared. You must find out th…e reason your baby is crying - forcing unneeded medication in your baby is wrong and unnecessary. If you just don't know what to do please consult your physician (pediatrician) . Answer Most cough syrups contains alcohol, so if you give your baby enough it will die, and therefore have stopped crying. - Geoff Answer i wouldn't. when i was in high school kids were drinking cough syrup to get high. cough syrup has dextromethorphan in it which can kill and does happen to teens so i wouldn't want to put that in my babies body. it probably will stop the baby from crying though cause its drugged Answer Answer Giving the baby a drug to make them fall asleep is not a good long term solution. Usually, babies cry for a reason--discomfort, hunger, hot/cold, overtired and so on. Most cry a lot in the first few months. So. You check their diaper, make sure they have been fed recently and burped, lay them down in their clean bed if it is time for a nap (or parental time out), leave the room, and set the timer for 15 minutes. Usually, they will settle down after a few days of this pattern. If it is not naptime, take them for a walk, play with them or move them to another place in the house. ( Full Answer )
no!! go to your vet, they will have a solution!! **Correction/Improvement** It is difficult to know whether a dog has a fever or not. A dry nose does not indicate fever. The most accurate indicator of a fever in a dog is the old fashioned thermometer up the rear. However, one dose of aspir…in will not harm your dog and may make it more comfortable while waiting for your vet appt. A typical aspirin dose is 5 to 10 mg per pound (10 to 20 mg/kg) twice daily for dogs. Always give with food. ( Full Answer )
It would be impossible for anyone here to make a diagnosis through the Internet, but it sounds severe enough to visit a doctor. It could be anything from a chest cold to pneumonia or worse. I would have it checked now!
With dogs, Tylenol can possibly result in liver failure and then death. Call a veterinarian and ask them what to do. If you can't reach one now, baby aspirin can be given to the dog, but NOT adult aspirin at the normal dose. Buffered adult aspirin (ONE) can also be used. Make sure your dog has close… access to cool water to drink. Answer: Never, NEVER give your pet any medication intended for human use without checking with a qualified veterinarian first. Many meds that are perfectly safe for people can be deadly to our pets. Tylenol happens to be very hard on the liver in humans. I doubt it would be appropriate to use on dogs. ( Full Answer )

A cold, flu, or strep throat are the most likely candidates. If your fever goes above 102 or you have trouble swallowing, see a doctor. Otherwise, eat what you can, rest, take aspirin and wait about four more days. Do not take antibiotics unless your doctor prescribes them for this illness.
Yes. The only thing your baby should be eating at three months is formula or brest milk. Consult your babies doctor before you give it any solid food. You can cause you baby to have childhood obesity by feeding it things it shouldn't have yet.

It is possible you have some type of flu but it may or may not be flu and it may or may not be swine flu. The only way to know for sure is to get lab testing. See the related question below about what to do if you think you have swine flu.
YES! I'm dealing with that right now. I have had no fever but I've been coughing until I throw up. I can feel the phlegm popping in my chest when I cough, but I have no other symptoms other than a sinus headache. I don't have asthma and I don't have allergies, and I know it's a cold because my s…on just went through the same thing, and he's fine now. So YES! And unfortunately, you just have to get over it. Take lots of vitamin C, Garlic, Echinasia, and oil of Oregano can be helpful too. But there's no miracle, everything you take will just help you get over it faster. ( Full Answer )
You have to take his clothes off and put a soaked wet towel in his for-head and give him Motrin or Tylenol.
\nHe should have been taken to the doctor last month. This can be a sign of a serious condition. Take him to a Doctor immediately.
Probably not. I wouldn't give any drugs to a baby. Try removing the cause of the allergy. Oh yes, I'm not a doctor.
Cough and the Common Cold You know how annoying it is to have a cold. Imagine how much more so it is for your child. You can take nearly any over-the-counter medicine you want for relief of your symptoms. Your child has very limited choices, especially now that cough medicines have been found to po…se a risk to children under six years old. If your child has a cold, he likely has a dry, hacking cough. There may be a little bit of rattling in his chest due to mucus. He'll also have a runny or stuffy nose, sneezing, watery eyes, reduced appetite and possibly a low-grade fever. In most cases, a cold will clear up on its own. Just provide your baby with plenty of fluids and rest. It is also helpful to soothe his little nose with saline drops and ease his congestion with a rubber bulb syringe. A cool-mist humidifier can be helpful as well. In some cases a cold can turn into something a bit more serious. If your child runs a fever of 100 degrees for three days (or a higher fever of 103 for just one day) this could indicate that he has the flu. He may also have an ear or sinus infection. See your doctor if your baby has a fever, if he has yellow discharge from his eyes or if he has a green mucus discharge from his nose for more than two weeks. If the cough last more than a week, your child refuses fluids, or if the cough causes him to vomit or has blood in the expelled mucus, see your doctor as soon as possible. Asthma and Bronchitis The cough you'll notice with asthma and bronchitis is very similar. It may be accompanied by wheezing and noisy breathing as airways tighten. People of all ages can get bronchitis but in infants, bronchiolitis is usually the problem. Asthma can cause coughing, especially at night. An asthma attack needs to be treated immediately with medicines that your doctor will prescribe. These can include prescriptions that will stop an attack as well as other medicine that will help prevent an attack. If you suspect that your baby is having an asthma attack and you do not have any medications for her, call 911 or get to an emergency room as quickly as you can If your family has a history of asthma, there is nothing you can do to prevent your baby from developing it too. However, you can delay the development and help prevent attacks. Avoiding possible triggers goes a long way toward prevention. If your child has allergies you should consider seeing an allergist for help. Eliminate allergy triggers such as smoke (from cigarettes and the fireplace), dust mites, animal hair and mold. Air pollution and over-exertion can also trigger an attack. Bronchiolitis is typically caused by a virus called the Respiratory Syncytial Virus, or RSV. Because this is a virus, antibiotics are of no help. However, it can be dangerous so always see your doctor in order for the condition to be evaluated and monitored. Cough from bronchiolitis is similar to asthma but it usually includes fever and loss of appetite. As with a cold, the best treatment is rest, fluids and a cool-mist humidifier that is cleaned daily. Croup Croup is a very common childhood ailment that is often contagious. It is easy to recognize by the characteristic cough. Your child will sound like a seal barking. Other symptoms can include a low fever, high-pitched wheezing when breathing and possibly labored breathing. Usually croup will clear up on its own in a week or so. Many parents find that cool air eases their baby's symptoms. Use a cool-mist humidifier or take your baby outside on a cool evening for a few minutes. Some parents will even slightly open the window in their child's room at night. Another method that can help is to run the shower until the bathroom gets steamy. Sit with your baby in the steam-filled bathroom for 15 to 20 minutes allowing him to sit upright while he breathes in the steam. See a doctor or call 911 immediately if your baby struggles to breathe while he is sleeping or if he starts to turn blue. Severe cases of croup may need to be treated in the hospital with oxygen. Less severe cases may be treated with mild steroids. Consult your doctor before giving your child any fever-reducing medicine such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen. Don't be surprised if your child gets croup repeatedly. Some children just seem to be prone to it and tend to get it often. The Flu The cough that may accompany the flu is similar to when you child has a coldÃ¯Â¿Â½a dry cough. The difference is that your child will likely have a fever, vomiting and possibly diarrhea. Like a cold, the flu is also similarly treated with fluids and rest. If your baby refused fluids, runs a high fever of 100 degrees for three days or 103 degrees for a day, or if she is struggling to breathe seek medical help immediately. She can get dehydrated easily and she may have more serious problems. GERD Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease, or GERD, is actually fairly common in infants. Usually it isnÃ¯Â¿Â½t serious and often they outgrow it within a year. However, there are cases that can be more severe. Symptoms include frequent cough, frequent hiccups, spitting up, poor appetite, poor sleep and irritability during feedings. Often some simple changes can help your baby deal with GERD. Try keeping him sitting upright during feedings and don't forget to burp him. You can also elevate the head of his crib to help his food stay where it belongs when he is sleeping. Smaller feedings given more frequently can also help. Call your doctor if you see that your child is losing weight or if he has problems swallowing. A sore throat, respiratory problems such as bronchiolitis, or sinus or ear infections are also reasons to see a doctor. Whooping Cough Pertussis, or whooping cough, is a very serious illness. It has been increasing in frequency since the 1980s and has been found to be transmitted to babies from their parents, who show no symptoms, in many cases. It is characterized by loud, frequent, violent coughing spasms. Other symptoms include the tongue sticking out, bulging eyes and discoloration of the face. If your child exhibits symptoms of whooping cough, call 911 immediately. Oxygen will be needed during the coughing spasms. Your doctor may prescribe erythromycin to the entire family and you can expect it to take several months to recover. There are many different types of coughs, some serious and some not as serious. Educate yourself so you can recognize the need for medical attention if the need should arise. ( Full Answer )

No. The placenta is designed and intended only to work for 9 months. After 9 months it starts to degrade and detatch from the uterine wall. That's why doctors need to be as exact as possible when determining due dates, especially with Caesarian section.
If the amoxicillin has been reconstituted (...if it's a liquid when you get it at the pharmacy...) then No, you must NOT give it to your baby. After 7-14 days, the antibiotic will not work....even if you have had it in the fridge the whole time. If the infection has come back, the baby needs to visi…t with the doctor again. Giving "old" antibiotics can cause resistance and in some cases can be toxic...chemical changes make the medication dangerous. Even the tablets of antibiotics can become toxic past the expiration date. ( Full Answer )
If the symptoms are severe as you say, these could be symptoms of a serious infection. Most people faced with these symptoms in an infant would contact a medical professional urgently, or go to the Emergency Room for treatment, especially if there is a combination of fever and rash.

Give the child fever reducer up to three times then take them to the doctor if it doesnt subside.
No! Are you burping the baby properly after feeding? That should help alleviate the problem. Also, breastfed babies have less gas than bottlefed babies do. Bottle-feeding could be causing the problem.
Usually not. But if it has turned into a cold or infection then yes they will run a fever.
No. You should never cough blood. No, It may just be your sinuses, but it could be something much more serious, like Tuberculosis . Please see your doctor.
I'm not a doctor but I've given my 2 month old baby a taste of ice cream and yogurt and now I've given her some apples n blueberry baby food and she's had no problem. Do not give honey or peanut butter or anything that can cause food allergies. I give mine very little in between breastfeedings becau…se she has doubled her birth weight and wants few every hour from the breast so I e found the food helps keep her happy longer. It I only let her taste certain things and never replace her actual feedings she still needs the nutrients of breast or formula milk. Hope this helps! Never give babies real cows milk tho they cannot digest the milk proteins. ( Full Answer )
No. Aspirin is not recommended for infants or toddlers due to the risk of developing Reye's Syndrome.
It could be that you have developed a kind of allergic asthma, particularly if there are no other symptoms of cold or flu. This happened to my 60 year old brother and it took a long time for it to be diagnosed. He had never had allergy or asthma symptoms before, although asthma runs in our family. T…here is no specific cure although inhalers have helped. ( Full Answer )
All you can give them is infant Tylenol. That has been recalled so it would be the generic store equivalent. The dosage varies depending on the child's weight. If you talk to the pharmacist they can instruct you about what the proper dosage is for your child.
You need to know the weight of the calf first (maybe even the age) to know how much penicillin to give it. Better yet, contact your veterinarian to give you some tips on what medicine to use (Baytril may be the safest for your calf) and dosage rates.

It really depends. If your child appears relatively happy, is breathing comfortably, and his cough is more an inconvenience than anything else, it can most likely wait until you can get to your pediatrician. However, if your child seems to be straining to breathe, is very upset or very lethargic, y…ou should go to the emergency room. ( Full Answer )
Actually I was told orange juice is not suitable under 1 year, but my doctor said other juices are fine at about 5-6 months but recommends baby food and water more than juice . It's true babies don't need water under 4 months since there is plenty in formula and breast milk, even after 4 months just… a few ounces (3-4) are recommended if you've started baby food, but I definitely would not give your baby orange juice. ( Full Answer )
Yes, it would actually make her feel much better.. it soothes the fever.. hope your child feels better :)
Most non-prescription drugs aren't meant for babies under 3 years old. You should really visit a doctor or the hospital for inquiries like that, as professionals will know what medicine is safe for a baby to consume.
You would not want to give enterocrinin to a three month old baby unless a doctor has prescribed it. This is used to stimulate the small intestine and should only be done with medical professionals.
