My 2 year old has had major diarrhea, and throwing up for 3 days now. I took her into the dr yesterday and they prescribed an anti nausea pill, which helped for a little but she still threw up. Her bottom is so sore she doesn’t even want pressure from sitting down on her bottom. I feel so bad for her, and want to help her get better. Her dr didn’t help me at all, other than the pills. Is there ... More
I have a two and a half year old and an almost four year old. They’ve been sharing a room for almost a year now. Recently they’re both suffering from sleep problems and eating issues. We can’t get them to eat much of anything. My husband and I are exhausted, so are they. They both walk are all day with dark circles under their eyes, neither one has half the energy they used to, and the emotion... More
Anyone else have their little ones getting bad bellyaches from too much gas? My 4 yo little one has been having a lot of belly aches from gas to the point that she comes crying to me, and it’s just like an infant where the gas is trapped in her belly, (several of my little ones were very gassy infants). Usually I will lay with her and rub her belly until she “Toots” some, but does anyone else ... More
Is there a product that helps with diaper rash pain, maybe a diaper rash cream that also soothes or reduces the pain? Or a technique to change diapers while minimizing pain associated with diaper rash? When my son’s diaper rash gets really bad, changing diapers is a traumatic experience for him. At its worst there can be deep redness and bleeding. Opening the used diaper and using wipes sends... More
Hey Everyone! How can you tell if your child has food poisoning or a stomach bug? My girl has been vomiting but has no fever..she is still her playful and happy self. You would never guess that something is going on until she throws up. Is it food poisoning or stomach virus?
Took my 1 year old to the children's ER for unexplained vomiting and diarrhea. The doctor's diagnosis is stomach virus and said nothing can be done except letting it run its course for the next 5 days. Absolutely nothing? Not even to quell the nausea, speed it along, or minimize the diarrhea? Did I just get a disinterested doctor or is chronic misery, vomiting, and watery crap all over... More
My son is 2 years old and today started with a fever of 99.3 f° even with Motrin in his system, then 6 hrs after I gave him Tylenon and his temperature is 99.5 f° I'm a little worried because he doesn't have any other symptoms, he is not in pain, he keeps playing and acting normal but the back of his head, neck and back feels super hot, everything feels normal. His forehead feels normal... More
Hi Parents, I need your advise/suggestions please... my 21 month old daughter has been stuck at the same weight of 19 lbs since she was 12 months old, her pediatrician says she is ok... but for some reason I'm worried cause I don't think it is normal. She is a toddler so she is very active and she is also a very picky eater. Did any of your kiddos go through this... I'm thinking of ... More
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
