Doctor:How can I help you?
User:hello doctor
User:this regarding my daughter
Doctor:Proceed with your query.
User:she is nearing 1.5 years
User:off late she has started waking up all of a sudden in night and cries a lot
User:i initially thought that this could be that she is feeling hungry
User:so i started giving her milk before bed
User:and also when she wakes up, my wife feeds her...
User:but still she wakes up a multiple times during the night and sometime even during day naps
User:the only thing which is worrying me is that why she is crying
User:is it normal?
Doctor:Your description is an unusual complaint.
Doctor:It would be an extremely difficult task for me to predict what your daughter - if this is normal or abnormal.
User:so do u suggest me to take her to a paedtrician?
Doctor:Before you plan to visit the pediatrician, I would suggest you to watch her every day activity. Either you or your wife can document all the activities.
Doctor:Also watch her sleeping cycle.
Doctor:You will need to describe the events in details before and after the episode to them.
User:she has very unusal sleeping cycle
User:she sleeps very less
Doctor:Your pediatrician can examine the child accordingly and plan the next action step accordingly.
User:she sleeps at around 12 in the night and wakes up at 9
User:also she takes very short naps...though she is very active and playful after her short naps during the day
Doctor:I would definitely suggest detailed clinical examination by your pediatrician.
Doctor:He/she can examine the child.
User:ok thanks..
Doctor:I think the cause of the problem and its solution can be suggested only by evaluation.
User:appreciate your time and advice
User:i will log out from the chat now
Doctor:Thanks for consulting.
Doctor:Bye for now.
