wow Mm that was kinda uncalled for. please leave it in the debate section thanks!


As for your child crying to much, it is probably seperation anxiety. It is very common at this age. Even very traditional parenting gurus "Dr. Spock and the such" believe that when a child is going through serperation anxiety it is best to try to comfort them as much as you can. Obviously you cannot hold them 24 hours a day but... Have you tried a baby carrier. You can wear thebaby on your back while you can do your clenaing or cooking or whatever

well, the reason i have to leave her sometimes is that i smoke. and obviously i can't take her with me. when im doing housework/cleaning i'll put her in her walker...but even when i leave really quick to get a diaper, use the bathroom, take a shower, things like that by the end of the day she's hoarse. i'm just wondering if if she's really crying too much and i should console her or if this is just the way things go in teaching her to cope with my absences....

Has she always been this way? Babies do go through separation anxiety, but my DD cried a lot as a baby, and it was because she had GERD (reflux), which can be painful. A hoarse voice is one symptom of reflux.

Default Re: 7 month old with sore throat from SCREAMING!

she did use to have that, then my husband and i put her on enfamil AR for her GERD and her symptoms dissapeared as she got older and we switched back to a less expensive kind. but she only cries when i leave her, so i don't think GERD is to blame. it's just like she cries so much her throat hurts her and gets so hoarse. i'm wondering if i need to console her or just let her self soothe. i never leave her for more than five minutes at a time. i think she's just getting so spoiled actually...i just don't know anymore...

Judging by my experience with my DD, my hunch is that GERD could quite possibly be the culprit. Our pediatric GI specialist said babies typically don't outgrow it until 12-13 mos.. Some later, if at all. It's certainly worth switching formula and trying the meds again to see if that improves her crying. Poor thing could be quite uncomfortable, which is why she's crying so much.

I agree with Trina, but wanted to add that smoking may be makin gher throat worse. Many babies are (well all probably) are allergic to smoke and it can cause irritation. Even if you are not smoking around her, the second hand smoke can still bother her.

i never thought about the smoking thing...i guess i'll switch to the AR formula again and see how that does with her and try to figure out a way for her not to smell the smoke on me. thanks guys!

One good way to eliminate the possibility of her smelling the smoke on you is to quit. If this is in fact the cause of her throat and other health issues, it is important to get rid of it completely. How important are cigarettes when it comes to the health of your child? My two cents...

if that's what is causing her throat issues (and that's all of the issues) then i'd definately quit. my daughter is by far more important than my smoking. but i plan to try other things first before going on the long journey of quitting smoking.
