Good evening ma'am, the stretching could be as a result of colic. Colic is common in babies. Unfortunately, there are no proven treatments that consistently help every baby. Although you can try INFACOL. It usually starts a few weeks after birth and often improves by age 3 months. By ages 4 to 5 months, the majority of babies with colic have improved.

Colic is a major cause. Colic is a natural phenomenon which will resolve with time, just make sure your baby burps after breastfeeding.

(4) -- Add the cooking spices, don’t wash because they are in their edible form. (5) -- Cook for 30 minutes to bring out its golden colour. (6) -- Sieve the water in a cup to cool a bit. Drink.

Did you check the body temperature? Many mums do complain of hotness of the head a lot due to the subjective feel of their hands but when you use the thermometer, it's normal. Kindly note that there is a lot of blood flow to the brain in the head and this may make it look like it is hot. True hotness or fever is ONLY when the body temperature reading is above 37.5°c. Anything lower is normal. If truly you are getting persistently high fever kindly see a paediatrician for further evaluation and management.

U should breastfeed her more especially after each episode of pooping. The greenish poo maybe pointing towards your being underfed. Ciproflox is not usually being prescribed for babies, a 3 weeks old at that. Had dsame experience with my baby, I just continued breastfeeding her at interval since she was active and sucks well, I relaxed and d pooping stopped on its own.

The pain will resolve gradually, eat more of food high in fiber to prevent hard stool, take lots of water too, maintain good perineal hygiene to prevent d site from being infected cos infection will slow down d healing process, take fruits rich in vit C. All d best!
