The lactose intolerant baby tends to grunt during a feeding and may have stiff stools. Although she may be fussy, the baby with reflux is very fussy and arches her back when crying. The reflux baby spits up large amounts frequently.
It depends. I think making your own baby food will save you money and you know exactly what your baby is eating. It's a factor of time, however. Some parents just do not have the time to make homemade baby food.
After a few weeks, you will learn the difference between the different types of crying. Babies are very good at entertaining themselves. I don't think boredom is a factor.
I do not advise the use of Motrin in infants less than 9 months of age. The manufacturer says it is okay to use it in infants aged 6 months and up. Motrin(Ibuprofen) is a powerful medication. It can blunt the immune response and so I reserve it's use for very high fevers(103 or higher) or severe pain.
Rashes are very tricky. I typically advise an office visit for questions about a rash because it takes years of training to discern the correct diagnosis for a rash. It is difficult enough to diagnose a rash when I see it and even more difficult when trying to listen to a description.
