Q.

loosing balance

Good day Doc
I have a 14month old baby boy. Sometimes when for example, you were holding him and then put him down, he looses balance abit. The same when you taking him from his car seat and putting him down.He takes a couple of seconds to be ok.Is this something to be concerned about?He is still not sleeping through.He tosses and turns sometimes moans in his sleep.Or wake up crying only to settle after i reassure him.
Please advice.
Thank you Doc

This is quite normal in a baby who has only recently strated walking. Your baby may still have a reflux problem as he is moaning in his sleep. Try giving him Gaviscon Liquid 2.5ml [half a medicine measure] at night and see if he settles.
