We're happy to announce the launch of a new tool here at WebMD that we think our members will enjoy -- WebMD Answers .
While community is a place to get to know your fellow members and experts on a deep and supportive level, sometimes folks just want to ask a question and receive an answer. That's what WebMD Answers is all about.
I hope you check in with us again. Remember a baby at the age of 12 months and now 13 months, doesn't understand verbally a no, or shush or any kind of real discipline be it verbally or any other. They communicate through screaming and sounds and anything that gets your attention. If she's not hurt or sick, then her screaming is her way of getting your attention. Until they can talk and communicate on their own, you are at a real disadvantage of knowing what they want, but soon enough you will figure it all out. Best bet is to ignore it, if she's not hurt. It's really her way of communicating.View Thread
I hope by now your baby is feeling better. If not I would strongly recommend you calling your pediatrician and sharing your concerns and all the symptoms he is having. Please let us know how he is doing.View Thread

We hope you'll be able to watch the show and take part in the discussion about it. And, be sure to come back here to pose your own dental health questions to our board experts. View Thread
Feb. 17, 2012 -- 574,000 bottles of infant Tylenol have been recalled by Johnson & Johnson's McNeil Consumer Healthcare division. A faulty part of the dosing system -- an interior cap called a "flow restrictor" -- can get pushed down into the bottle. This interferes with the syringe used to measure each dose. It could result in kids getting too much or too little acetaminophen , the painkiller/fever-reducer that is Tylenol's active ingredient. The recall affects seven lots of infants' Tylenol Oral Suspension 1 oz. Grape, sold over the counter across the U.S. The recalled infant Tylenol:
Has the UPC code 300450122308
Has lot numbers BIL0U00, BIL0V00, BIL3500, BJL2D00, BJL2E00, BJL2T00, or BJL2U00
The product should not be used if the interior cap has been pushed down into the bottle. If the cap is intact, the product may be used. "We apologize to parents and caregivers who have found our SimpleMeasure dosing system hard to use," McNeil president Denice Torres said in a news release. McNeil says that it has not heard of anyone being harmed by the recalled product. "The risk of a serious adverse medical event is remote," a company news release says. However, the company admits it has received several complaints about the faulty SimpleMeasure system. The system works by pushing the dosing syringe into the flow restrictor, then turning the bottle upside down and using the syringe to draw the correct dose. It's a new system, ironically put in place to reduce the risk of overdose. The company is offering a refund to consumers who contact McNeil at its Tylenol web site or by calling 888-222-6036. This is the latest in a string of recalls of Tylenol and other Johnson & Johnson products involving familiar brands such as Rolaids, and Tylenol products for arthritis , cold and flu , allergies , and sinus pain. More information on the recall, and a video demonstrating how to use the product's dosing system, can be found at www.tylenol.com/page2.jhtml?id=tylenol/news/subp_tylenol_recall_9.incView Thread
