So about 10 days ago my 20 month old got a stomach bug. Every time she drank milk she’d throw up. But cheese and butter and even meals with milk in them was ok. So the pediatrician told me to hold off on milk for about a week because that’s usually enough time for the bug to pass. So I waited till Saturday (gave her oat or rice milk all week) and gave her whole milk again and she was ok. Then l... More
My daughter has drool rash and I might have gone a bit overboard with the Aquaphor. I’m thinking they are just clogged pores.
What does the PAMF pediatrician handout say about whole milk transition? My baby is still 10 months but I’m curious what they say about milk transition.. any moms been told they don’t need to give whole milk and alternatives were okay (incl yogurt or cheese)?
Sooo my 20 month old has her first stomach bug😭. She threw up 3 times and since the last throw up she’s eaten most of one pedia pop and a couple of crackers. She loves milk and keeps asking for it but the last throw up was all milk so I don’t want to give it again. Is there another milk that you know of that won’t upset the tummy?? Like a nut milk or something? Also, any other tips?? The ped... More
My LO is almost 9 months and has her 6th tooth coming through. It obviously bothers her but i am really hesitant to give her Tylenol--given how many teeth she has dealt with plus two ear infections/colds and pain after shots, i feel like she has already had a lot of Tylenol over her short little life. My husband does not feel this way, he says to follow the guidelines and it shouldn't be an... More
Looking for some information/insight on radon in homes? We’ve been living in our home in Hamden for 2 years now and the radon levels were very high when we did the inspection before moving in. We took the necessary steps to “fix” the problem at the time but it’s something that still worries us. We know that the couple who lived here for a long time before us both had cancer in recent years, and... More
My 2 year old got a scrape on his forehead a few weeks ago. Since then he’s made it way worse by picking at it. He tends to pick at it in his crib and in the car seat so I don’t see it. I have tried bandaids and he picks them off. I’ve also tried surgical tape, liquid band aid, cutting his finger nails and putting socks on his hands and night. Does anyone else have any ideas? I’m worried about ... More
My 4.5 y/o son has been potty trained since he was three. He was always regular up until recently when he had a few days of constipation which lead to a painful BM and some diaper rash and soreness, possibly a hemorrhoid. The constipation is gone but for the last three weeks he has been afraid to go poop because he thinks it will hurt. So now he holds it as long as he possibly can. It’s becomin... More
Sorry this is so dumb. My 21 month old has her first ear infection and is on antibiotics. I forgot to even ask about washing hair for the next 10 days. I assume you have to avoid water in the ears!? I will call the office tomorrow but looking for answers now.
Through a combination of "back is best" habits and his heavy preference of sleeping on his back, baby has developed a bald spot on the back of his head where his head touches his sleeping surface. It's also red and warm to the touch, but soft and not scaly nor bumpy. Often he shakes his head left to right to scratch that part of his head against things. So it's obviously itchy... More
So my little one has been running this very sporadic and high fever (101-103.6) once a day for the last 4 days. We saw the doctor Friday for her Well Visit and they did a flu swab (negative) and pushed up her 12mo bloodwork (slightly anemic which she thinks could be related to an underlining virus). The doctor recommended if she continues to run a fever we should get a urine sample with a tube.... More
She seems pretty herself just extra fussy. She’s congested and breathing from her mouth. I have a humidifier in our room. Given her mucus and cold medicine, baby vapor rub and a warm bath . Also bought saline spray but doesn’t seem to do the trick after using the bulb. She’s still congested. Any tips? FTM. TIA
