Hello! What is the best time or way to start swimming lessons for toddlers with ear tubes? Is there a special precaution we must take? In our case, our son has had tubes placed about 15 months ago. One of them might be starting to come out. Really hoping we can start swimming lessons ... But not sure if the best thing is to wait for confirmation that the tubes are out. Appreciate any insights 😊
Need advice asap! My 10 month old has a snotty nose, bark like cough, and hasn't been able to sleep for two nights. I tried to get her seen yesterday and the DR was all booked. Now she's up with a 100.9 fever. I have given Tylenol and we've got her stripped down to help reduce. Her symptoms would show a little this morning and then went away, came back at dinner, and went away sho... More
My mother in law is a heavy smoker and wants to visit once the baby is born. I don't know what to do, but I feel very uncomfortable with the fact that smoke smells is so strong. (For the record, my own mother smokes as well but the smell doesn't linger the same. Plus my mom knows how sensitive I am and offered to change her clothes and wash her face each time she smokes). We don't ... More
Our 3 month old was diagnosed with reflux this week. We also transitioned him out of the newborn napper in his pack n play due to his weight (15 pounds) we still have him sleeping in our room. I don’t like him sleeping in the rock n play full time but I’m looking for another solution of where he can sleep to help with the reflux. We tried a crib wedge (elevated one side of his mattress) in the ... More
I have a 5 year old who’s been complaining of belly pain right at her belly button for about a month. She only complains when she eats. We saw the doctor and he said it’s not constipation. She’s super skinny and he couldn’t feel anything. Anyone else have troubles like this before?
Any tips for Eczema? And what’s your daily routine for your LO? I have a 9 month old. We have visited the dermatologist and she suggested a medication that’s mildly working as well as using Vaseline all over instead of lotion...idk about that...any suggestions? I’ve tried things but I’m just looking for suggestions.
My LO had a cold which led to an ear infection. The doctor prescribed amoxicillin 2x/day for 10 days. She's on day 3 of the antibiotic and I'm noticing a light rash developing on her torso. Thankfully it doesn't appear to bother her, yet. I have a call in to the nurses line of my doctors office and am waiting for a call back, but I'm curious if anyone else has had a similar expe... More
My 10mo is on an antibiotic and steroid and she has been terribly constipated for days! She will pass small amounts but never a full diaper like normal. I know it is causing her discomfort and pain. Any ideas what I can give her or do to help? Since she is already taking an antibiotic, steroid, and allergy medication I really don't want to give her any other type of medication. I'm look... More
My daughter is 10 mo and is now on her 3rd antibiotic since mid-December. This is her 2nd ear infection. She is also on a steroid for her horrible congestion/wheezing (also 3rd time but over 5 months) I have always hated giving medication because of the harm it does to their immune system but her doctors are really pushing the medication and said it's necessary. I'm starting to loose a ... More
I’m freaking out right now. My 4 YO just got taken back to get a root canal and a crown at the dentist. I know they’re professionals and it’s what’s best for her but I can’t stop worrying about her! She must be crying and scared! (We couldn’t make it to the appointment where we could be in the room with her because she was in pain and needed to be seen NOW.) 😥😥😥😥😥
My 4 month old is congested and has a cough. This season has been rough for our family because we have been sick every month! I don’t normally call the Pediatrition office for anything but thought since he was having such a hard time breathing I would just be safe. Thankfully he is a cheerful baby still, no fever and I’ve already been doing sailing, and humidifier. However, I received disturbin... More
