  • Well first you have to tell us what is the problem? belly aches? how old is your baby? how do you know the baby is hurting?

  • With no other info, I would try tylenol.

  • well pedialyte and rice shouldn't be given to a one month old no matter what anyways so whatever is wrong was just made worse by those 2 things....whats wrong? How is she hurting?

  • ditto to the other two... we can't give advice if we don't know what the problem is. If it is gas or constipation you can get the little babies gas stuff at the store to help with that or constipation there are suppositories at the drug store for infants you use to help them poop - it isn't fun cuz they wil poop right then. I am assuming you have a colic baby and are at your wits end which is why you didn't leave much details. I rub my babies tummy in a clockwise circle to help her. Digestion happens clockwise which is why this helps some. I just started using the drops to help with gas bubbles. I had to use the suppositories for my son because he had gas and constipation from formula.

  • I just saw your page, you just joined? You have a one month old, we can't advise at all, you must contact a doctor, you don't even know if a one month old is hurting, she just may be crying. If she has a fever or ANYTHING she needs to go to ER RIGHT NOW!!!

    Do not give her any OTC remedies, any medication not specifically for her from her doctor!!!
