Your baby seems to be a normal healthy baby. Try saline nasal drops which are available over the counter. Please see a doctor in person if cough and blocked nose persists.

Common Skin Problems in Newborns

Mongolian Spot

This is extremely common in Indian babies. This appears as a blue-grey patch on the buttocks or the lower back. The patch can be quite large in size. They look unsightly, but apart from the cosmetic appearance, they do not cause any problems. Often parents confuse it with a bruise and see a dermatologist when it doesn?t settle down. This can be safely ignored and it may either disappear or become smaller with age.

If it is not resolving surgery will be needed. The term is not trigger finger Trigger finger happens when tendons in the finger or thumb become inflamed. Tendons are tough bands of tissue that connect muscles and bones. This is a congenital defect.

Along with the baby, the mother also benefits physically and emotionally from breastfeeding. Due to the release of the prolactin hormones, a peaceful and nurturing sensation fills the mother.

Are there any long-term effects associated with taking ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) medications? If so, what are they and what medications are implicated?

The baby not getting enough milk is a frequent, unnecesaary worry among the young parents. First of all it almost never true. Weighing the baby before and after the feed on an accurate electronic scale can give an idea of how much milk the baby suckled. Second test is to manually express the breast and see. If the nipples are not inverted, the baby can be encouraged to suckle frequently so that feeding gets established. If the nipples are inverted then, a nipple shield can be used. Correct positioning and latching of the baby is of utmost importance. A trained person can help with this. There are some drugs such as perinorm which can be given to the mother as a galactagouge. The mother's fluid/foodintake should be increased and she should be constantly motivated, supported and assisted till the feeding gets established.
