Q:

hello doctor's and mommies
Have 2 questions :
1) my lo is sleeping on left side.My in-laws  saying he has stomachache or stomach related problem therefore he is sleeping on left side .Peraonally I don't feel he is suffering from stomachache.How it's true?
2) he urinates very less quantity but doing it many times.I'm giving him 150-200ml water in a day .What would be cause for this?

Hi dear, sleeping on the side is normal. Babies keep changing sleeping positions just like us. Stomach ache would cause baby to cry and be restless. So the sleep position is a myth. About urinating, if babies are disturbed in between the peeing, they would stop. As long as there are minimum 6- 7 wet nappies and baby is not showing discomfort while peeing, therre is not much to worry. Also check if urine is yellow. Don't measure the water. Since its summer, give as much as baby wants.
