Our pediatrician is concerned our 6 month old might have congenital hip dysplasia. We’re going to have another check up in a month and then might have an ultrasound or X-ray depending on what she finds. Has anyone had any experience with this condition? What is the treatment like? I know it might involve surgery...

My husband grabbed the A+D diaper rash cream yesterday at the store instead of our usual. I shrugged and just used it and when I went to change the next diaper after using it, my daughters privates were covered in little sores and swollen!!!! We called her pediatrician of course and took her in. She's fine with a topical ointment to heal, but has anyone else ever had this happen with this s... More
Over the past few days my 12 year old son have developed hives that seem to come and go. First time I noticed something wrong he came home from his grandparents with a swollen top lip when I asked if he hit his lip he said no. A few days later got a call from the school saying he had hives all over his body and face was swollen. We went into the walk in but they didn’t seem to think he needed a... More
I have a 14month old who was born at 35weeks and development is delayed a month a a half.

If there’s something she wants or it benefits her then she’ll respond greatly which makes me think she understands, but other than... More

My baby is almost 4 months old and was diagnosed with mild to moderate sensorineural hearing loss. He failed the newborn screening 2 times then went to see a specialist and failed the more comprehensive hearing test at... More
We are really big on water safety and recently started our 22 month old in swim classes. There’s a lot of singing and nursery rhymes which don’t benefit my kiddo as she’s deaf. She hates going to class. She will arch her back like a gymnast and kick anyone in a 2 foot radius. We used to be able to get about 15-20 minutes through class before she threw a fit but today it was the moment she saw ... More
My 20 month old had keratosis pilaris rubra, aka chicken skin. It’s severe red bumps on her thighs, arms, cheeks and buttocks. It doesn’t bother her too much but it keeps getting worse and more red. I’ve gone the the allergist to verify it is not a food allergy and the dermatologist just for them to recommend the same creams I’ve already tried. (cerave SA, hydrocortisone cream and KP duty) Do...
