Does anyone know any remedies to help solve this I hate seeing him straining so badly to poop. PLEASE HELP!
My sister is breast feeding and it was going well for the first month but lately her son seems to be getting incredibly gassy at night after feeding and it’s killing her. She’s tried eating more dairy, she tries leg exercises to move stuff around, and she’s tried dr. Browns colic free bottles but he is just so irritable when he goes to bed and she says he is SO gassy that he can’t sleep. Any s... More

My daycare has not been administering my toddler’s medications to him. They are topical creams that are prescribed for his face to help heal a potentially disfiguring injury. Per doctor’s orders, he’s supposed to get them daily for a year or else it will scar and heal improperly. If it heals improperly, the doctors say my child would need surgery to correct it. I’ve discussed my concerns with ... More
The stores and Amazon are all sold out of hand sanitizer but I read I can make some myself with rubbing alcohol. I found an old bottle of 70% isopropyl alcohol so I’m going to try to make my own (I ordered Aloe Vera gel to mix it with). Any favorite recipes or gotchas when making your own hand sanitizer? I don’t want to mess this up because it’s also hard to buy rubbing alcohol right now too.
I know that there is a lot of buzz about Coronavirus right now, so I wanted to start a thread on how to prepare for it. "Officials said that Americans should continue to practice protective measures -- hand-washing, staying home from work when sick -- while local officials should make sure systems are in place -- teleschooling, working remotely -- should face-to-face interactions need to...

My 2 year old has been complaining of her leg/foot hurting the past two weeks. It always happens at night, she will wake up crying from her sleep. Massaging it seems to help a lot and goes back to sleep but there’s nighta where she’ll keep waking up several times for the same thing. The doctors don’t seem to help much and say to just give her Tylenol to help which I have and does help, but does... More
My LO is 8 months and has been dealing with mucus and congestion for over a month now. We have been the doctors twice, the first time he hadn’t had a fever so they told us to run a humidifier at night and take the boogers out and it will go away. The mucus caused him to cough a lot and made him eat less formula. We did that for 2-3 weeks but then he started to get fevers so we went back to the ... More
My toddler, 3 has the flu, found out on Monday so he’s been sick since Saturday afternoon. His fever has gone and seems fine but he is so tired all the time. He has been sleeping so much and lying around. Does anyone with having experienced this know when my little man will have his energy back? I hate he’s not himself!
My son loved eating food since we first introduced it to him, but now he’s not even wanting to drink his formula anymore! I know he should drink it until his a year old but he won’t take it in a bottle or a sippy cup. He’ll drink a little but after a few seconds he gets up or pushes it away. We’ve tried changing the nipple size but he still has no interest (we’re at the biggest size now). Shoul... More
My LO is 19mo and HATES/won’t let me suction the boogers from her nose. We used to use the bulb but never really worked so I bought the nosefrida and it works great when I can actually hold her down long/hard enough to get her not to move. This just isn’t working!! Any ideas/tricks to help me get the boogers out?
My daughter will be 2 1/2 at the end of February. She has been in speech therapy for about 2 months now, her therapist has said she has been making progress but I personally haven't seen a dramatic change. She also suggested she get evaluated to possibly start Occupational therapy on top of her speech. (I know things can take time) My question is to whomever can set my mind at ease. When sh... More
He’s been sleeping all day and I’m extremely worried about him. He doesn’t stay awake for more then 10 minutes at a time. I’m going to be taking him to the ER when our ride gets here but just wanted to know if this is normal or not?
