Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

My baby will be 2 months old this month. For the past three days, my wife and I have noticed that our child is not getting enough sleep. My baby is awake from 2 AM till 9 or 10 AM. If we see her shut her eyes, we lay her down. After a few minutes, she is continuously wailing and crying, even after feeding. She is not sleeping and is always crying. Last week, she received her first five-in-one TDAP immunization. These are the medications she is now taking: Hydrocortisone for asthma, physical for the face, and Cetirizine for the past two weeks.

Kindly help.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Sleep disruption and crying after feeding signals that your infant may be suffering from stomach discomfort or gastritis-like disorders. At this age, newborns typically sleep for 12 to 16 hours. So I would advise you to take the infant to a nearby physician and have her evaluated. He will examine her belly and provide medicines if needed. Please take the baby to a local hospital or clinic so that she may be inspected in person. It will be fine after a few days of medicine. Is the infant pooping normally? Please let me know if you need anything else.

I hope this helps.

Thank you.
