My baby is almost 11 weeks and he chews on his tongue and spits alongside. What could be the problem? I'm a 1st-time mom? please h...
Tongue sucking is one of the common oral habits seen among children. It is normal for infants to suck their tongue, thumbs or fingers. It gives them a form of comfort or emotional security but when this habit goes beyond the age of 5 years when the permanent teeth start to erupt, then it can cause dental problems such as the teeth being out of alignment. You do not need to worry or do anything for now. As the baby grows older you will need to encourage him or her to stop by positive reinforcement that is giving rewards on days when the child does not suck. I hope you find this very useful.

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.

Remove the Sticky Stuff. Sometimes mucus hardens into a crusty or sticky mess around your baby's nose. You can also Vaporize by Placing a cool-mist vaporizer or humidifier in your baby's room to add moisture to the air. Give Love Pats. Gentle taps on your baby's back can help ease chest congestion.

Most babies will move into delivery position a few weeks prior to birth, with the head moving closer to the birth canal. When this fails to happen, the baby's buttocks and/or feet will be positioned to be delivered first if the doctors or midwives can achieve this naturally. This is referred to as “breech presentation.”

You have to make sure it's prescribed by your caregiver. Fansidar is usually prescribed twice in one pregnant, the first dose as soon as you feel your baby's movement (btw 16-22weeks) then the second dose a month after. You can take it in your second trimester but not safe in the third trimester after 34 weeks cause of d risk of ur baby having jaundice. If u have malaria symptoms, see your care provider. They know d best drug of choice to prescribe depending on ur weeks of gestation. Besides, Fansidar is only meant for preventing malaria not for treating it. All the best!
