Help! I thought that my 5 month old baby was losing his hair, but caught him tugging and pulling his hair out at night. Since then, we've started using mittens and that seems to be helping, but now he has several bald patches on the back of his head :( Has anyone experienced this? Will hair grow back? Any tips on helping my little one speed up his hair growth?
Not sure if my child has it or not. Not sure if he got it from his baby sister (almost 7months) Baby only had those red spots on her body a couple places. 2yr old had sore/bleeding/swollen gums. A blister on his tongue and still little red spots on his face and arms. He had a fever the first night also. He hasnt been eating very much of anything because his mouth hurts and so also not much ener... More
My toddler had a bug bite (mosquitoe most likely) she won’t stop scratching it no matter how much I put on Anti-itch cream and now it looks like this, she has it on a few other spots on her body where she won’t stop itching it. I’ve tried mittens on her as well so it won’t get worse but nothing helps. Anyone know what it could be or what can help?
My baby is now a toddler, just turned one this summer. He still drinks breastmilk supplemented with formula (trying to use up our stash) through a sippy cup. Occasionally, perhaps once every few days or weeks, he will spit up. Not much at all, and he doesn't seem bothered by it at all but still: Is it normal for him to still be spitting up at his age? If so, then at what age can I expect sp... More
I have a 10 1/2 year old son with Down Syndrome and atypical autism. What is the proper dosage of CBD oil? I have given it to him before. It calmed him down and he slept calmly through the night. The morning dosage caused drowsiness. I have also tried NEUROPROTEK. It was expensive and made him more focused, but nothing more. I would like to speak with a parent who has a child as my own, who ha... More
I took my child to the doctor over two weeks ago when this started. Originally the ER doctor said is was diaper dermatitis- four days later I took him to see his doctor and they said it was Hand foot and mouth. It’s been 15 days and it doesn’t seem to clear up around his legs feet and arms - nothing on his face or mouth or chest or back... does anyone have an ideas what it could be? I’m worried... More
My 2 year old has have issues pooping since she was really little. I even took her to the pedatric GI who gave lactulose. Which works but makes her poops very watery. She eats alot of fruits not very big on veggies but she does ok. All of this and she still has a hard time going. Any suggestions?
Here is the situation. We've been struggling with a constipated baby, per the last few posts i've made. We've added probiotics, gas drops, gripe water from time to time. The pediatrician approved prune juice to test so we've been doing one ounce of juice added in two half portions throughout the day. It's been helping - but not without struggles! Poor girl cries and cries a... More
Hi all. I feel like most of my personal posts on Winnie are about constipation. My daughter is about to turn 2 and is always on the brink of constipation, or so it seems. She gets a daily probiotic, I limit her milk consumption, and she eats fruits, veggies, etc. I limit her “binding” foods (bananas, rice, etc), she drinks plenty of water. But she daily has hard poops, sometimes followed later... More
My 6 month old has been scratching herself so bad, (bug bites have added on to the problem) I’ve put on mittens but she just sucks on it and it gets icky. We’re tried oatmeal baths (doesn’t really seem to help). Dove scent free baby wash, Aveeno oatmeal wash and cream. Non scented Vaseline like her pediatrician told me. We’ve tried baths twice a week and frequent bath schedule as well. It doesn... More
Hi! So everytime we go on a walk my son immediately complains about cramps. He loves walking and begs to go. Regardless of the amount of activity or frequency of our walks the complaint is always the same. I ask questions to determine if it is cramps or something else and it seems to be regular cramps. Any ideas?
These past few months she was nicely eating solids: fruits, veggies everything... from a few weeks suddenly she is not interested in eating solids.. she hardly eats, only about once a day and the rest of the time she drinks my milk.. she has no teeth. Up until now she was super active.. I’m scared to force her to eat, so do I just leave it if she is not eating well.. is this normal?? What shou... More
Hello... I’m wondering if anyone’s been through a similar situation and what they have done. My two year old refuses to drink milk or any dairy. I am very concerned about her calcium intake. I discussed it with her pediatrician and she suggested other alternatives such as yogurt cheese almond fortified calcium juice and kept telling me to keep trying. I keep trying but my kid is a very picky ea... More
