My two weeks old baby has neonatal sepsis and I wish to know how long it takes before it clears after giving him antibiotics.
Sepsis is treated with antibiotics given into the vein for some days or in severe ones for 3 weeks..

Sepsis can be caused by any organism - bacteria, virus, parasites etc. Blood test usually shows high white cell count. The baby must be treated in a hospital. Prevention centres around good hygiene. The importance of hand washing cannot be over emphasized. Malaria prevention and control is key. Washing babies utensil separate from other utensils is a must. Proper hygiene while making food should be an uncompromising standard. Source of water for babies food must be clean, odorless, colorless and tasteless.

Please note that it's normal for babies to lose some weight in the first two weeks after birth because of water loss. But they should add up before sixth week.
Kindly ensure that your baby is feeding well..... Feed baby more often and breastfeed to empty one breast before offering the other one.

Two weeks my baby will be a year old, and she prefers liquids to solids. Even soups she just spits the leaves out. What do I do?

Your baby might not be eating enough if he or she doesn't appear satisfied, even after feeding, and cries constantly or is irritable. Call your baby's doctor if you're concerned your baby is not getting enough to eat. A few weeks after birth, breastfed babies tend to have fewer bowel movements than they did before.
My 2 weeks baby boy was circumcised this morning, mums what can i use or give to him for quick healing of the penis. thanks
​Leave your infant's dressing on for 24 hours after the circumcision.
While your child is healing, apply a petroleum-based ointment (such as Vaseline) to the end of the penis after every bath and with each diaper change.
Go to the nearest emergency department if your child has excessive bleeding, fever, worsening redness or swelling, yellow liquid draining from the incision or difficulty with urinating.

Baby has reflux or more properly called Gastro-oesophageal reflux. It basically means food tend to return from the stomach back to the gut....which is the opposite of what is right way. There are some measures that can help like keeping baby upright for longer up to 30 mins after feeding and burping. However, in serious cases these measures may not work so you have to see your paediatrician for more....like we can thicken the feeds, use some medications and in extreme cases, few may need surgery (extreme being the key words). most babies do well with general measures like keeping them upright and not laying them flat shortly after feeds.....only few need the extra measures....for most babies s they get bigger and mature, reflux reduces as the sphincter or gate between the stomach and the oesophagus get stronger to prevent the retrograde flow of food/milk.
what can I use to ease my 2weeks old baby from catarrh?
