My 9month old has had the habit of scratching her face and ears for a few months now. At first we thought it was a soothing thing because she does it a lot of times when she's tired or mad, but she's been doing it more often often lately and more aggressively. Her forehead and ears constantly have tiny scratches that bleed. She also has only ever slept through the night maybe three times. She's usually a happy easy going baby, I'm starting to wonder if the scratching and not sleeping could be connected? Has anyone one heard of anything or had a similar situation? Getting a little worried and seriously over tired. Please help!View Thread
My son is eight months old. He is teething, the past two days his cheeks begin to turn bright red. Last night his cheeks were really hot. After speaking to a on duty nurse she advised me to see my son's doctor within the next three days. This morning I took my son to see his doctor, he has Panniculitus. I will no longer freeze his teething ring. I will place a wet wash cloth in a zip lock bag & place it in the freezer that way he will no longer get freezer burn.View Thread
My daughter was born 3 weeks early and spent 2 weeks in the hospital. She was on neosure for preemies when she was born. She started spitting up and then it went to throwing it up. She has had diarrhea , consistant crying and gas since she was born. They had changed her to soy and she had a reaction to it. The dr then put her on nutragimen. We have to feed her sitting up and she sleeps in her swing at night. If you lay her flat down she screams like she is in pain. Can anybody give me any hints on what to do please. She has a dr appt in Sept with a GI dr. Until then......View Thread

My 4month old hit his head hes started rolling just now and i didnt expect it. He fell off his changeing table on a clean clothes pile to be folded and was upset for a good three minutes. Hes acted normal and happy as usual but where he hit around his ear to his temple and a bit on his head its still swollen and it's 3 hours later. Im super worried. Everybody keeps telling me if hes acting fine and not crying hes fine but im worried. Has anyone had this happen before. My first instinct is to run to the doctor but my family and my mother were saying hes acting fine and hes fine and not to be such a worry wart. Help?View Thread

My baby gets a diaper rash that does not go away with any of the creams the pediatrician prescribed. I'm afraid it might be something else. Is anybody else struggling with nasty rashes? http://strollers-buggies.com/View Thread
My newborn baby, Raylin, was born four weeks premature, at 5lbs 2oz and while we was still in the hospital she was on the enfamil newborn, but she threw it up every time she ate. she aas at 4lbs 6oz when we can't home. Well she's 11 days old now and since she's been home she's been on the gentlease, and hasn't spit up once. She's back up to about 5lbs. Well now she's having constipation problems that won't seem to go away. It took her 18 hours to pass her first stool at the hospital, then I had one incident where her stool were hard and she got backed up for about 10 hours then was able to go back to normal. Well this time she's been constipated for about 26 hours. Her last bowel was a full one but it was hard too. Generally 2 out of 3 of her diapers are poopy. I don't know how to sooften her stool or what to do. Or if this is even normal. My other two children didn't do this. So my question is is it normal and how do I help her along? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.View Thread
when she was a baby she never cried for her bottle... at one time she missed two feedings and did not mind she just kept sleeping...
ive only seen her smile twice in her three years of life and laugh once... she never gets fussy. she talks as well as a 3 year old should talk but doesn't really feel like it, she asks for things by pointing.i really don't like, i try to make ask for it by talking but she just looks at me and walks away. she doesn't want to interact with children she doesn't play with her toys...she walks around the house, but other than that she does nothing. she just wants to be by my side. if i sit her down somewhere she doesn't move from that spot... all she does is look around with her big beautiful green eyes...

I tested positive recently for h-pylori through a blood test. I pushed my children's peds to test their stool (as I could get it back if they were positive), and had my husband get tested. My 6 yr old son is negative, but my 2.5 yr old daughter came up positive. her only issue has been strong smelling stool. I know this is something usually acquired as a child, but as an adult/child once you are positive, you can catch many times over. I am currently nearing the end of the triple treatment. It was tough on my 35 yr old body, mostly the one meds causing a horrible taste in my mouth all day/night. I spoke with their ped and they said they don't normally treat for it unless they show symptoms and said I don't need to. I asked to treat her in fear that I can get it back again. I feel terrible because she would need to do the same treatment, and I worry on her 2.5 yr old body what the meds will do. I don't know if it's safe at her age, or if she can tolerate it ok? I feel very torn. I am showing signs of an ulcer, and I know this can cause me serious GI issues if I keep contracting it.View Thread
My 12 week old cousin is a very unhappy baby. He constantly digs at his ears and eyes and rubs his face on any surface/object we give him. My family believes that his face/ears may itch. When you go near his ears with any kind of touch at all, he screams like its hurting him. He cry all the time with very few breaks in between, with actual tears, too. I may be young but i know babies only cry like that when they hurt, really bad. He doesn't respond to any kind of noise and wakes up to almost all vibrations. He doesn't sleep very well either due to this. He also throws up a lot. Not just a little bit of spit up, but A LOT. The doctors he goes to are pitting out all these nonsense theories as to what it could be, but all of the seem really off the wall and not even possible in a 12 week old infant. Does anyone know what could be going on with this beautiful baby boy? Please, my family is desperate!View Thread
when my son was a month old, he suddenly started keeping his left arm stiff and moving it less than his right arm -flailing it around. i went to my family doctor and showed her. she checked him and moved his arm around and told us it looked fine. since then he is moving it more than he used to, does not cry when arm iks touched. he also grabs my finger. when i massage him, i do light exercises and he seems fine with it and smiles at me. but this week, i noticed that when he is put on his tummy, he veers to his right side and it looks like he is trying not to put any weight on his left arm and starts crying. previosuly he used to put weight on both his arms and try to lift his head. when we put him on our shoulder, he is tilting towards his right as if he will fall off the shoulder. he also keeps his left arm straight down when previously he used to curl it around my neck. i am very worried as to what could be wrong and what i can do. i have an app with my family doc on wednesday or his first vaccine. do i wait or go to the hospital right away to show him?rView Thread

My baby was bottlefed in the hospital because I had c-section. I've tried to breastfeed her, but she's not patient at all, so I started to breastpump, but nothing came out and I got discouraged! It has been 1 week since I stopped trying and I feel guilty giving her formula. She's very colicky and gassy so I would like to try again. She's only 3 weeks old! Does anyone know if I can still breastpump again and succeed?View Thread
my baby stopped accepting the breast milk since he was 6 month. Since then the hell broke loose and he starting eating/ drinking milk every 2h (and these are our lucky nights). The only milk he accepts is Soy milk. During the day he takes a nap for 2h at noon. He doesn't have patience to eat well during the day. During my pregnancy i had a very low sugar level (47 - while the normal is 80-120). I never got to test him because he always has milk with good night cereals so his sugar level is ok.
Please help me with any advice. I have tried delaying the feedings. Doesn't really help. He just gets angrier and cries more and more.
I haven't slept 1 night for more than year. I luv him but he needs a better night sleep.View Thread

My soon-to-be 6 week-old daughter doesn't seem to like to sleep in her crib at night. I would rock her to sleep, and she'd fall asleep in my arms. I place her in her crib and a few minutes later, she's twitching and grunting. I pick her up, rock her back to sleep and place her back in her crib, and the grunting and twitching continues. This only happens at night. She has no problem napping in her crib during the day. What could be wrong? Is this normal? How long will this last.View Thread
