Does anyone have any experience getting their baby diagnosed with asthma? They will only say he has asthmatic tendencies. He barely sleeps and has a really hard time breathing. His inhaler doesn't really work anymore. I don't know what else to do to help him.
My 2 year old has just started Budesonide via a nebulizer. Backstory (long sorry): last year in November he was hospitalized with just a really bad cold. He ended up being intubated for about 3 weeks. It was terrible. He was fine over the summer but I noticed in Late September he had a pretty consistently runny nose and light cough. He didn’t seem to have a cold though. Went to an asthma... More
So my 2 year old has been on Zyrtec since September and it’s helped a ton. Fast forward to November 15th and he got a bad cold. All the symptoms have subsided and he’s in good spirits but the cough is still lingering and our allergist (who hasn’t ruled out asthma) prescribed Singulair. Anyone have any luck with it? Last year he was hospitalized and intubated due to a really bad respiratory i... More
I have a 3 year old who has always had some eczema issues since he was born. It comes and goes with the severity of it. But today it is the worse I have ever seen it and we haven’t even hit winter yet 😞. It is really bad on his butt and lower legs (almost looks like hives). We use lotions daily and desonide that a dermatologist gave us when he was really young. Does anyone else have any kiddos... More
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.
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
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 .
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?
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.
My daughter is 7 and a half months and decide she did not want to breast feed anymore I do have milk stored in a deep freezer that I have been giving her but decided to make her a dr apt to let her pediatrician know what was going on. Her Pediatrition said to keep giving her the breast milk but to also try formula as well to get her use to it Incase I run out of breastmilk. I have been giving h... More
My son got a really bad rash due to diarrhea, it’s really red with lots of bumps and he starts crying and looks uncomfortable. I gave him an oatmeal bath. What do you prefer or recommend between baby butt paste or aquaphor for that rash? I used desitin, but I don’t think it’s doing much this time.
