Any idea what this can be? Goingto call the dr if it doesnt get better but for now just wondering if anyone has an idea and what I can use to treat it.
My husband and I just found out at our routine 20-week ultrasound that baby has a small ventricular septal defect between the heart chambers. It will be monitored further in case it doesn’t close on its own by birth. It caught us completely by surprise as our first pregnancy was straightforward for the most part. We already have a plan in place for the best and worst case outcomes (different de... More
Yesterday my 6 month old woke up with hives on her arm that went away and came back into her thighs and went away to come back on her hands back etc. I already was taking her for her wellness exam and shots. The only new food introduced was carrots and the day of the hives she did not have any. Two days prior she did. The doctor told me to give her Benadryl and hold off on carrots and reintrodu... More
Hello! New to the Winnie app. My son is going to be 2 in November. He has always been small in size (in the 1st and not on the curve for weight and height) but it’s becoming more noticeable as all similar aged kids are so much bigger. He isn’t a picky eater, but 75% if his food goes on the floor. We will no longer let me help him with the spoon or fork and takes two bites of something and then ... More
What formula would help? Momma's not gettin enough zzzs.
This video of a kid climbing an "unclimbable" pool ladder is going viral. Pretty scary stuff. It only takes him a minute. It's pool season so just wanted to share as a reminder to all of us that you just never know what can happen! Be careful out there ❤️️ https://www.fatherly.com/news/video-unsupervised-toddler-climbing-pool-ladder/?utm_campaign=fbowned&utm_content=fatherly... More
My 2 year old son had a fever yesterday and that's pretty much gone now but last night and tonight he woke up shivering and with a dry cough. His throat feels swollen but not sure what I can do for this at home before I decide to take him to urgent care. Any recommendations?
Hey, Mommas. So a while back, I put up a post about my son’s frequent stuffy nose and congestion and how NOTHING worked. He hates nose sprays, so that was out of the question. I took him to the ENT and Dr requested an X-ray. It shows mild adenoid hypertrophy. He had mentioned that it may be the case and can be removed. Are there any Moms out there who encountered this with their little ones?... More
My husband overreacts when our son gets sick. It’s stressful enough dealing with a sick toddler but he just badgers me about the what, who, where, when, why and how. What does he have? Where did he get it from? When did this happen? Why did you let it happen? How did it happen? Freaks out and tries to get me to take him to the ER.. gets mad at me for exposing him to something, lectures me to ke... More
Hey guys do you have any advice on what to do to help your lactose intolerant baby get all the protein and calcium they need? Right now he's drinking almond milk which has some added calcium and protein but not nearly as much as whole milk. And how much milk should my baby have a day if it's almond milk instead of whole milk?
My 7 month old has thrush. I took him to the Dr and they gave him an antibiotic called Nystatin. The directions on the medicine say to swish around the mouth well and gargle, however my son is too little to understand that. Any tips on how to give it to him or get it to coat the inside of his mouth? He hates the taste and spits it out immediately.
Our 3 year old fell off a platform at an indoor playground (not a big fall, but landed awkward, no swelling or bruising) and was ultimately diagnosed with a “toddler’s fracture” where the tibia twists and fractures. Nothing too serious, he’s in great spirits but won’t put any pressure on his leg or walk on it. He was put in a soft case & we were told to follow up with Ped Ortho Monday for p... More
A couple of months my wife and I took our 1.5 year old daughter to the toddler gym. We all got sick a day or two after going. I want to go back because we had a great time, but I'm worried about our family getting sick again. Does anyone else feel like this and what would you do?
I started a babysitting job this week but I found out they have fleas at their house because my daughter and I are allergic to fleas and both of us now have huge big red bites all over our bodies I don’t want to put my daughter through the irritation and pain but how do I tell them I can’t continue in a nice way
