Hi. Did your daughters belly go away? I have a 4 yr old girl and she has a pretty big tummy. Just like you described your daughters; tight & round and always sticking out. I'm worried it will get worse.View Thread
Hi everyone, My one year old has had trouble with constipation and hard stool for quiet some time now. Looks like it got worse when I switched him to cow's milk. I have since went to 2% milk. I started giving him Miralax Sunday because he was trying and straining and looked like he was in pain trying to poo. So I gave it to him Sun, Mon, and he finally went Tuesday. Should I continue to give it to him to get him regulated and then stop. The bottle says to stop after 7 days I think? Any advice is appreciated. ThanksView Thread
I have a one year old and she is a busy little girl during the day and goes to sleep at night around 8-9pm she wakes up like she is real restless cries out she went on whole milk at 1 year but she also has a hearnia on her belly button. any suggestions?View Thread
Hi jeets, it happened with my kid too, i tried feeding up him with diff kinds of food like fruits, soups, veg puress etc., rather than his regular food. he eats well when i change his food rather than regularView Thread
The question is bit old, but it may help you, it happens mostly due to the heat in the body. if you are still breastfeeding her, i suggest you to follow some diet. take your daughter to pediatrician tppView Thread
I know this is an old post but hopefully your issues have resolved with your daughter sleeping in her room! I wanted to give you a word of advice that helped us with this issue. Maybe it will help with your new baby. We used an amazing sleep sack called the zipadee zip for our LO. She loved it & i think bc she felt cozy in it she slept better in her bed. I hope this helps you or someone who comes across this in some way!View Thread
My daughter is almost 15 months and will be having her tonsils and adenoids removed next month. I am worried, has anyone had their child this young have this procedure before? My 2 year old son had it done this past April and stayed in the hospital 2 days and took almost a month to start eating normal. She is so much smaller than him and it can't wait, her tonsils are so large now that she can only really eat baby food. She was eating table food. She vomits if she coughs, cries, or something moving around just makes her gag. She snores and has sleep apnea. So this can't wait. Can't give her any meds like Tylenol unless its in her bottle otherwise she will vomit. Thanks in advance.View Thread

My 1 year old daughter is producing milk, and this hasn't happened before. I spoke to my pediatrician and they said it wasn't nothing to worry about., and then I spoke to an on call pediatrician and she said that it was very abnormal. We're just so confused., If anyone else has heard of this happening to your child or any other child with these symptoms., please let me know We've never even heard of this happening to a 1 year old.... HELP US PLEASE !!! Any info will be more than helpful and appreciatedView Thread
Well this post was submitted 4 months ago, so i hope everything is ok now! But our 1 year old is a walking disaster, but she's doing just fine still. She's face planted off the back of a couch, has fell off of beds multiple times, off of stairs, has slipped and fell ont our tiled floor numerous times and has yet to experience any severe medical issues. Apparently this is due to babies bones being harder at that age and although it will still hurt and freak them out, it wont do much damage. According our to pediatrician, babies can fall as high as 10 feet down and still be just fine...after calming them down of course. although wouldn't recommend letting him/her climb anything that high!
also my nephew did the same thing when he was a baby...did carthweels down the stairs and even fell from a 2nd story window...he turned out just fine
unless they pass out, puke or their behaviour drastically changes, you typically dont have anything to worry aobut, especially if they start acting like their normal selves again after soothing and comforting. Babies are going to bump and fall and their super resilient!View Thread
Hrmm well i think all kids are different when it comes to this? My step-daughter didn't take too long to 'warm up' to me but i was very interactive with her. I think, with kids, 'sillyness' plays a huge factor. If he can make her laugh by playing pick-a-boo or tickling or maybe even reading her a book? Once she's warmed up to him, it's gets better...but he has put in the effort. My step-daughter will still call out for mom when it's just me and her but for hte most part, as long as i don't ignore her and engage her, she'll be pretty happy and will not have an issue spending time with me. So it's kind of all about how active he is with her and how often and what he's doing with her.View Thread
Our baby just turned 1 on the 22nd of June and she still only says 'mom' 'dad' or 'daddy' and she tries to say 'doggy' even if it's a cat
But other than those 3 words, she hasn't really started to 'speak' other than her sounds and pointing...she's very good at body language communication especially with 'pointing'
But as of yet, she hasn't been saying a whole lot as far as understanding her goes...so i would say it's probably pretty normal? we practice with her all the time...we'll repeat words with her while driving in the car. but the most clear word she says, perfectly is, of course, 'mom' i wouldn't worry, unless your baby isn't saying anything at all (as in no sounds or anything...) if your baby is just flat out quiet all the time besides crying, i would ask your pedia.View Thread
My step-daughter just turned one. She sometimes is very resistant to sleep and will SCREAM bloody murder. I found that, sometimes, just laying her down and letting her put herself to sleep works best. It's almost as if she is slowly starting to get to that 'I don't want to be cradeled' stage. It's kind of hit or miss with her. Some nights it's scream until she finally takes the bottle and other nights, like last night, I just have to lay her down, wrap her up and give her her favorite toy and she'll just fall alseep on her own. So you could try that? Or maybe wait until she is actually ready to fall asleep. Try avoiding late afternoon naps. We don't let her nap anytime after 4 o'clock so she'll be tired by bed time for all of us. otherwise, she'll be mad that she's being 'put down' when she has all this built up energy still. Lastly, if it's a continuing issue...might be something medically and would recommend getting your baby checked out. Hope it helps and hope she sleeps better!View Thread
Try Resinol Cream, it is a pink colored paste and has worked wonders for my sensitive skinned daughter when she gets a diaper rash. I have only been able to find it at Walgreens its not a prescription but you have go to the pharmacy and ask them for it. I think it was $10 for a small jar, but it goes a LONG [a class="template-reply-post" id="exchange-post-enabled_A8" style="color: rgb(0, 102, 153); cursor: pointer;" onclick="LoginCreatePost(this,'parenting-1-year-olds-exchange','3'); return false;"> ways!View Thread
Ty so much, Sohpia! I'm an old, retired nurse and a first time grandmother; my granddaughter Haylee, started getting this rash around her mouth and I tried putting a little bit of Desitin on it before she went to bed at night; I also drink Crystal Light Raspberry Ice and she LOVES it, but it's "red." So, I have DC'd that as of today and I am heading to WalMart to purchase this Aquaphor to see if this will work for her; I really appreciate the adice and will keep ya posted! I was a "cardiac" nurse, not dermatology! LOL...so, I really wasn't sure what to do. THX!!View Thread
My son is experiencing the exact symptoms as your daughter, he is now 1yo and I am just wondering how you guys made out. It is very little informatuon available on aspirating pneumonia, but my boy has been hospitalized 3times now for it. Hopeful for any answers or advice you can offer. Thank youView Thread
You should stop worrying. OTC meds seem over the top and unnecessary.
My 18-month old has been 99% for height and weight since he was born and is thriving just fine. My toddler whines, but it is when he is tired or hungry. Growing a lot requires lots of sleep (and food) so if he hasn't had enough, he's not a happy toddler. If he wakes up smiling and not crying, he's had enough sleep. 11 hours at night, 1.5 hours nap/day. I offer him food whenever. He eats more days than others. I don't worry about it. He tells me when he's full very clearly. I don't push it. Enjoy your healthy, thriving toddler!View Thread
PLAY is at the core of our children's overall development, especially when it comes to speech and language development. And it is the work of children and much of children's play revolves around the toys they have available to them. With the holidays here the shopping has commenced. Parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and friends are busy trying to find good, quality toys for kids as gifts. As a professional online toy store, Toyswill will share some tips for selecting toys this season.
1. Ditch the Batteries 2. Pick open ended toys 3. Back to basics: Pick traditional toys 4. Don't worry about gender 5. Skip the ABC's and the 1-2-3â€²s 6. Think about toys that get them moving 7. Don't forget to get outside (outside toys are important too!) 8. Consider starting a toy rotation (after the holidays) 9. Sometimes the best "toys" are not toys at all! 10. To read each tip explained in detail, or dial Toyswill telephone number to inquire in detail directly.
Two-year-old child is when brain development, but also the ability to learn, ability to imitate an exceptionally strong, you can choose some educational toys, like this: http://www.toyswill.com/forest-explore- animals-paradise-building-blocks-wooden-children-puzzle-toys-jigsaw-giveaways-p-1860.html, you can buy her some of the plush toys, when she believed she would be very happy to have them.View Thread
We have the same problem with our son. We do what we can to try to get him back to sleep and after a couple hours of endless screaming, we give him a fresh bottle and stick him in his crib with it and hide in the living room until we hear silence in the bedroom. It causes all sorts of problems for us. No intimacy, no sleep, and exhausted at work. I'll adnit I feel some bitterness toward our son. Idk .... tonight I'm contemplating giving up on ever even trying to sooth him. Maybe we should just head straight to the couches every night and ignore him all night. idkView Thread
Let me begin by saying our son was impossible to put to sleep without a bottle right from the start. So, right at the beginning, I'd like to say, we totally put him to bed each and every time with a bottle. No wavering from that. No bottle = no sleep in our house.
The issue we are having right now is that our son has never slept through the night for more than a few days a a time. For the first 6 months of his life, he would wake up and cry a few minutes. We rocked him and soothed him back to sleep. Eventually we had a routine. Sooth, iaper, Sooth, Bottle, sleep. At about 6 1/2 months he started sleeping through the night in 2 or 3 day incerments. At about 8 months old, our son decided that he would start screaming and crying for hours and hours every night.
A night at our house is pretty much like this: 9:30pm - lights dimmed and hanging out in living room 10-10:30pm diaper, abd then into bed with a bottle. (no issue here, he goes right to sleep) 12am - Screaming and crying, another bottle, 1am - asleep again 2:30am - screaming and crying. Rolling fits and he pulls his own hair, and he likes to bang his head on the side of the crib and kick the crib. If we hold him he just fights us and if we put him down on the floor to play he just stands in front of us and throws a tantrum. We do his diaper, make a fresh warm bottle, give him Tylenol and sometimes a little benadryl (4am) and just keep trying anything to get him to sleep. 4:30am/5am - finally he falls asleep. 6:30am - He's awake, needs diaper and new bottle. 7am - he's asleep 8:30/9:45am He wakes up for the day. Usually crying.
And I'm so not kidding when I say thats a typical night at our house. We cannot afford an overnight nanny. We have tried lullaby music. We have tried baths before bed followed by story time. He does not deviate.

earleyml1012 - If your daycare center kicked your child out for biting - it was a blessing in disguise because you needed a better daycare provider.
My daughter is now 21 months old and bit from about 12 months to 19 months. Sometimes she'd bite 3 or 4 people in one day and sometimes she'd go days without biting anyone, but she was a biter. First off, her daycare center is set up like a school. Infants (up to 15 months) in one room, then to another room for toddlers, then rompers, then preschool, etc. As soon as you go in for a tour (most of the time still pregnant), they tell you that many children bite and it's a completely typical reaction as they are struggling to communicate their needs. They have written documentation they pass out as you register that talks about how they handle biting and that they will not throw children out for biting.
A qualified daycare provider should be prepared to handle this, so it's good you got out of where you were. They were clearly not qualified to care for small children.
My daughter eventually quit biting as she moved into a room with children that were a couple months older than her and has hit a spurt with her speaking skills. She now verbally expresses her frustration rather than biting. A lot of it is a herd mentality as well... she was bitten before she ever bit anyone, but I would never blame it on someone else or their children. It's just natural and while unpleasant, eventually stops if it's continuously discouraged.View Thread
