Signs of Illness in Infants
For infants younger than 3 months, we should be notified for the following:
- Rectal temperature equal to or more than 100.5°F
- Vomiting (not just "spitting up")
- Refusal of food several times in a row
- Persistent, loose, runny bowel movements
- Excessive listlessness
- Unusual rash
- Difficulty breathing
- Excessive irritability or continuous crying
It is normal for babies to sneeze, yawn, belch, have hiccups, pass gas, cough, cry, and occasionally look cross-eyed. Spitting small amounts of formula/breast milk is common, often appearing curdled from mixing with stomach acids. Sneezing is normal, as it is the way baby clears his/her nose. Hiccups are also expected due to immaturity of the brain and diaphragm.
If at any time you are concerned about your baby being sick or "acting differently", please contact us.
