Yesterday my 6 month old woke up with hives on her arm that went away and came back into her thighs and went away to come back on her hands back etc. I already was taking her for her wellness exam and shots. The only new food introduced was carrots and the day of the hives she did not have any. Two days prior she did. The doctor told me to give her Benadryl and hold off on carrots and reintrodu... More
Hey guys do you have any advice on what to do to help your lactose intolerant baby get all the protein and calcium they need? Right now he's drinking almond milk which has some added calcium and protein but not nearly as much as whole milk. And how much milk should my baby have a day if it's almond milk instead of whole milk?
Our 18mth old constantly has a runny nose & congestion! We went through many ear infections and ultimately had tubes put in at 10mths, it’s been a huge help bc we see drainage out the ear at times & can only imagine how many additional infections they’ve prevented. He’s on Claritin once a day but we see no significant difference. Pediatrician isn’t concerned & chalks it up to being ... More
I started a babysitting job this week but I found out they have fleas at their house because my daughter and I are allergic to fleas and both of us now have huge big red bites all over our bodies I don’t want to put my daughter through the irritation and pain but how do I tell them I can’t continue in a nice way
Just learned that my 18 month old is allergic to our dog. We have had our dog for 10 years, she will be 11 this fall. His symptoms are mild, including a running nose, and his skin does reacts with a rash when she licks him, which we prevent. He has had an asthma symptoms as well, but only in combination with other illnesses. Has anyone else had this happen, and if so, what did you do? Our dog ... More
Or taste subtle flavors, some things I can taste like sugar, salt, vinegar, etc. now I’m scared it won’t come back. Any advice?
Not sure what to do. My son has drainage, runny nose, watery eyes, and sneezing. We live in Ohio and pollen content is high and I called my dr today and I can’t give him any meds yet because he’s not two. No fever. He did throw up a little from phlegm. What should I do?
So our son has recently been diagnosed with Asperger’s, OCD and anxiety and our daughter with severe ADHD. Unfortunately we have had to put them both on medication in which we are not a fan of. Just wondering if there’s anyone out there going through the same thing and what has helped your little one?! We have been told that the CBD oil works miracles but any suggestions, thoughts or opinions w... More
My 3yo has been diagnosed with Reactive Airway Disease. He's started on steroid inhaler on Monday but is starting an episode today. I have a little finger monitor for his spo2 and heart rate. Does anyone know what spo2 level and heart rate is cause for concern? He's sitting at 95 for oxygen at the moment but his pulse is 140. Does the steroid raise his pulse? Should I be worried?
We started solids about a month ago, and I just introduced a half container of yogurt the last 2 days. (His first time ever getting dairy like that) and both days he threw up a handful of times throughout the day and into the evening. Nothing like a violent puke but just more a the spit up that he did when he was younger. Does this mean he is intolerant of dairy? Should I stop? Or keep trying?
ADHD and dyslexia = frustrated mother and child :(
My LO is a little over 7m. She had her doctor's visit the other day and told us we can start trying out foods like eggs, meats, yogurt, etc. She also had her last round vaccines. So yesterday morning, we gave her scrambled eggs for the first time. We finger fed her about 3 times just to try it out. She liked it. Within 30min or so she started getting couple of hives-like reactions on her fa... More
My son just turned one and was a micro preemie. I was just wondering if anyone else has a child with a tracheotomy? It’s really hard for him to even attempt to crawl cause of all the machines cause he can’t sprint. Anyone else going through this?
