Baby’s Health

One of the biggest responsibilities new parents face is managing their baby's health.  You are likely to have many trips to the paediatrician during your baby's first few years. One reason for this is that your baby's immune system is still maturing. So she's more prone to minor illnesses like coughs, colds and tummy upsets than older children and adults. Young babies can also suddenly get worse when they are ill. So your child needs to be seen by the doctor promptly if she is ill. The good news is that while babies get ill quickly, they also recover quickly once they get the right treatment.

Is it normal for my baby to vomit?

It's common for babies to vomit often in the early weeks as they adjust to feeding and as their bodies develop. You can tell when your baby is vomiting, rather than just bringing up small quantities of milk (possetting), because there will be a lot more coming out. Vomiting can be frightening for your baby, so he's likely to cry.

 

When should I take my baby to a doctor?

See your pediatrician as soon as you can if your baby:

  • Has diarrhea for more than 3 hours.
  • Gets a foreign body lodged in her nose, ear, mouth or vagina - never try to remove objects yourself.
  • Gets a burn larger than a one rupee coin, particularly if the skin is blistering (this includes a sunburn).
  • Has a fever - a fever is a sign that something is wrong and so should always be checked. Especially if there are other symptoms, such as persistent crying or a rash.
  • Has been vomiting for 6 hours or more, or if she has other symptoms with it, such as fever or a rash.
  • Cries persistently. As a parent you know your baby's pattern of crying better than anyone. If she is crying more than usual, or if her cry sounds abnormal, see your doctor.
