PoopIs it normal to be seeing mucus in your two months baby
Seeing small amounts of mucus in baby's poo is at most times not a cause for concern. This is because the walls of the intestine secretes mucus which may pass out with stool once in a while. Therefore, one or two days of passing that kind of stool shouldn't be worrisome.

However, if the mucus filled stool continues for like a week, then it could be painting out to diarrhoea, allergies or change in diets of the mother. It could also be pointing out to change in the pattern of breastfeeding.

If you still find it difficult to determine what is the cause, especially if the stool persists, kindly visit a paediatrician.

A baby of 10 months should be able to sit properly oh his or her own. However, there are some children that are slow with their developmental milestones. To rule out any problems, please visit a paediatrician.

Hi mama, first of all.. I’d like to let you know that you’re doing really great.
What you’re experiencing is very normal for babies and it’s just a phase and it would soon pass . I’ve experienced it 4 times. I just kept breastfeeding a lot, it wasn’t filling her but at least she wasn’t starving. Don’t worry about her weight gain, she’ll definitely pick up when she starts eating again. What matters is that she’s healthy and from the playing and being active, it’s safe to assume that. You can have pediatrician check her and confirm she’s okay just to put your mind at ease. I hope this helps, all the best.

It is important to note that most cough and catarrh in children and adults are due to viral infection, which runs it's course and stops on its own. Therefore the use of medication is not necessary.

For babies having cough and catarrh you keep child warm by avoiding exposure to cold with frequent baths or cold baths or exposure to direct fan or too cold ac in the room. Avoid smoke and people with cough and catarrh. If baby should develop breathing difficulties kindly take to see a paediatrician.

The use of SUCKERS, PACIFIERS and BOTTLES for babies on exclusive breastfeedingg is not recommended....It can lead to what we call Nipple confusion and make some babies reject Breast Milk. It also tends to fill babies' tummies with unnecessary gas.... As they suck in air.

Can I give my 6-month-old baby wheat cereal?
Wheat needs only to be avoided in children if allergic to gluten. However, it is better to start with smoother cereals like rice, maize when starting at 6 months then you can add Wheat when the baby’s tolerating that better and you need something a little coarser
What drug can 2 months plus baby use for serious cough and catarrh?
None ma, just keep your baby warm and continue exclusive breastfeeding.
There is no sign of bcg on my 3 month old baby arm. Do I need to take him back for another one?
Sometimes the BCG is given too deep instead of into the skin and at times it might not show for whatever reason. Usually to confirm in case of no BCG scar, we will do a mantoux test to see if there is a reaction expected for someone who has had BCG. If there is none after 72 hours, we will give the BCG again as long as child is healthy(a normal Chest X ray may be needed at times)

If you think a baby has temperature, you must measure FIRST with a thermometer...NORMAL TEMP IS 36.5 - 37.4......NO MATTER WHAT YOU FEEL. If your thermometer reads above 37.5 then give paracetamol and see a doctor for a proper evaluation to know the cause of the fever. There are so many causes of fever.
