My son ate apples (at 5.5 months) one time and broke out in a rash on his upper body and really red cheeks. I told the pediatrician and he told me to reintroduce apples to him again soon. Has anyone done this with a food baby was allergic to? How long should I wait? He will be 7 months old tomorrow.
So, I have a 2 year old girl that has been diagnosed with a form of hyperactive disorder / hyperactive autism. We were told she won’t be able to speak, but she is very smart and has already started to learn sign language for the past 3 weeks. I work a full time job. And the wife is a stay at home mom. Reason, is because we can’t afford day care and if she starts working insurance and daycare se... More

My 3 month old daughter has slept through the night since she was 2 months. But now she’s waking up almost every 2 hours and she cries out and rubs her nose on my chest like it itches, plus I can hear that she’s stuffy when she breathes. Plus her eyes look red, I’ve cleared her nose out multiple times and I have put baby vix on her feet, it helps a little. But I hate seeing her miserable. What ... More

Hi Familes! So my child got assessed through Public School System. She is 3. They say she's developmentally delayed and can get free therapies through the Public School sector. Anyone have any experience with private services. I am aware that it would cost money but I wanna weigh all my options for her..Which one is better private therapy or therapy through public school system. Anyone know??
For all my mother with children with special needs do not let the first opinion determine your child behavior. I have been told my son is autistic at 3 (July 2018) but he went for another evaluation at his school and they see more of a ADHA, mood disorder and behavioral disability. I believe by the age of 6 we'll get a better understanding of what are child condition are. Right now my son ... More
FTM so sorry if this is a dumb question. For the first time this morning I noticed what looks like a very mild rash across our baby’s back. She also had a few spots on her tummy that looked like TINY bug bites (hives)? I checked all her sheeting, since we have two large dogs, but found nothing. She’s been eating organic oatmeal for 2 months plus small bites of our dinner every couple nights.... More
Every time I get my daughter back from the babysitter she hasn’t these marks on her, whenever I have her skin is totally fine! It isn’t until she started at the babysitter this appeared, I took her to the doctor and just gave me some cream. I’m just super curious on what it is causing this .
Hi everyone - seeking advice and resources to help us navigate a complex but unfortunately common situation.

Our son is 4.5. He started tra... More
So we just got the results back and my one year old is in category 2 out of 6 for peanut allergy. So moderate. Our pediatrician told us to get an Epi pen just in case. Just wondering if any other parents found out their baby was allergic to peanut butter but then grew out of it? I’m so nervous about someone not knowing and feeding it to him and not know what to do. Thanks!
I let my 6 month old try scrambled egg today (just a few very small pieces) and he’s currently in the middle of a very long nap. Like going on hour 3. He took a 2 hour nap this morning. He usually has only one long nap a day. I’m feeling guilty for getting things done, but also am nervous that this could be a sign that something is wrong?
So my 6 yr olds neurologist did an mri and blood work because hes been pretty delayed for awhile in school work and cant hold a pencil or scissors right well the mri shows he has an insult in his frontal lobe which she said is eith from a mini stroke when he was in my stimach or a scissor disorder and the blood work shows he is missing 50 kb of his 14th chromosome and she said the is linked to...

My three month old constantly rubs her face when she’s sleeping/napping. She sleeps through the night. It doesn’t actually wake her up but it is making her eczema so much worse. Anyone go through this or have a suggestion? I was thinking of buying either a magic sleep suit or a zippadee zip to help. I’m afraid it will be a waste of money because she’ll still be able to reach her face.
