Q.

MEDICINE AND SLEEPING THROUGH THE NIGHT

CAN COUGH MEDICINE OR ANTIBIOTICT THAT WAS GIVEN OVER A PERIOD OF 3 OR 4 MONTHS CAUSE MY 7MONTH OLD BABY NOT TO SLEEP THROUGH AT NIGHT?
SHE WAKES UP EVERY 2 HOURS OR SO AND ALL SHE NEEDS IS EITHER HER DUMMY OR MILK. SHE DRINK 2 BOTTLES OF MILK (175ml each) DURING THE NIGHT AND NEVER SLEEPS THROUGH...

Many cough mixtures contain ingredients which can keep babies awake. The most frequent cause of this problem is pseudoephedrine.Stop giving your baby any cough mixture.
