My watch my grandson about 4 days a week. Throughout the night he is constantly flipping and flopping all over the bed. I always give him a bath before bed and feed him an hour before bed. He does this with his mom also. Do you have any advise on what to do?View Thread
My son will be 3 next month and he's never been testy or misbehaved more than your normal toddler, but here all the sudden he's become argumentative, he's lying, throwing tantrums, it's like a 100% different child and no discipline has worked!View Thread
What do doctors say about two year old boys humping things? My son started humping his blankets/ a few stuffed animals when he was around 12-13 months. He would do it for two to five minutes and then that was it. This lasted about one to two months. He had been "hump" free up until now. He is now just about two and a half years old and is back to humping his blankets. Now it last 10-15 minutes on and off. When we try to change the subject or ask him what he is doing he just ignores my husband and I and keeps on with this humping business. My husband is very set on getting him to stop, where as I just let him be as I don't want to do something wrong. PLEASE HELP View Thread
My son 18 months now has been having red boils that wont go away for over a year now in his groin area. Everytime I get him and keep him from his mother for the weekend I can get the irritation to go down and looks as if it is healing and getting better before bringing him back to his mother. When I ask her about these little boils she always has a different excuse as yeast infection, heat rash, infected ant bites, a regular diper rash, a diaper rash from diareah. No I feel very insulated as a father concern of my son's health condition and always get a differnet excuse for the same thing that he's been having.
My question is how common is it for a toddler to have staph infection (approx. 20 Boils in groin area) on a normal basis? or the chance of a toddler to have everything under the sun in a row for a constent year?View Thread
I would really like to potty train my almost 2 year old, but no one else is on the same page as me. I work 8-5 every day and she stays with her elderly grandmother while i'm at work, and her grandmother makes no effort to help me potty train her. How can I start potty training when I'm only with my child a few hours a day (exept on weekends, i'm off weekends)View Thread
My 3 1/2 year old daughter randomly screams, screeches or LOUDLY yells mama. She does it while she's watching movies on my phone, while we're driving down the road, while she's taking a bath......all of the time. It is making me literally insane. She screams at the top of her breath; it scares me half the time it's so loud. Her 4 year old cousin even tells her to "chill out" and stop yelling. Half the time after she screams/screeches, she'll say, "mommy......i want you", but the thing is, she can literally be in my lap already and still say that. What gives? I google search it and all the advice is about toddlers just finding their voices and testing the limits, but the truth is, we're beyond that......she's not testing out her voice or wondering how much I'll deal with her random outbursts, it's something different. Help, please!!!View Thread
My 2 year old daughter goes to bed around 9:30-10pm but wakes back up around midnight and thinks its play time with a tendecy of staying up til 5am. Does anyone have any advise on how to keep her asleep through the night? She just recently started to do this when i started my new job.View Thread
Our daughter is 2.5 years old. We have been fighting sleep issues (regression?) with her every night for about 2 months. She doesn't want to go to sleep at first, but after about 20-30 minutes she's out... for a while. Then, sometime in the 1am - 3am hours, she will wake up and make her way (near silently) downstairs and to our bedroom. She doesn't cry out, and doesn't want to climb into bed with us; she wants US to go lay down in HER room. We (one or the other of us) have to stay with her until she goes back to sleep, which only happens if we too lay down, about another 20-30 minutes.
She has two small night lights, and a lamp illuminates the next bedroom and the hallway to downstairs, so we have mostly ruled out being afraid of the dark. She has a snack or drink of milk before bed, so I wouldn't think it's because of hungry of thirsty. I believe if she was not able to come down the stairs, she would eventually go back to bed and sleep (she's done it at naptime). But I don't have any real way of keeping her upstairs (locking the door is obviously a safety issue, not an option), and she's a skilled climber, so a baby gate in her bedroom door would be pointless.
I get up around 5am each morning for work, which is early enough without night time wakings. Plus, we are expecting Baby #2 in February, so these middle of the night adventures really need to stop. Advice and/or sleep training plans are welcome! TIAView Thread

Help! My 19 month old little girl had a hairline fracture and was casted for two weeks. The cast was removed two weeks ago. How soon should she be walking like normal again? She started to limp a little bit and would limp with the once fractured foot out to the side of her and then yesterday and again today she doesn't want to walk on it at all. She will stand on it, but not walk. Should I be worried or will it just take time for her to be up and running again? It's so heartbreaking. =( Please help.View Thread

Hi Everyone, I have a two year old he is absolutely sweet as can be. At home he is a complete angel but when he is in daycare, he is the complete opposite. He Bites the other kids but at home he doesn't bite. So I do not know how to correct the problem. I cant discipline him for something that happened way earlier, he wont recall the event and therefore be confused when I got to discipline him. HELP please..!View Thread
My lil girl bites herself hard enough to leave marks for days, never breaks the skin but comes close. But its not when she is mad or upset. Only once in a great while do we actually catch her. Then we remove her hand and tell her that hurts not to do that. She usually bites her arm right above her wrist, only one time she bit her knee. I dont know how to stop this behavior. Has anyone else had this issue?View Thread
My baby catches high fever , cold frequently ; Even after all the tests, Xrays etc unable to find the possible symptoms ; As per doc, we must give a break for a month from playschool. It seems, he is scared of going to school or alergic to milk / icecream.
Someone is facing such issues...please suggest !!View Thread
My 2.5 year old boy has mild anemia. The blood count of his HGB and HCT was a few points below. We tried to push iron rich foods and drw the blood again and it actually fell a couple points lower. I saw 2 different ped's and they recommended 2 ways to go about this: Ist way: if he is not a picky eater, then keep psuhing iron rich diet and draw blood again in a few months or start iron supplement along with iron rich diet and see if this helps after a month and maybe continue iron supplement for a few months and then get off the iron.
We are starting the iron, beause he has just started to get picky and I don't want to be nervous (which makes him nervous) about him eating all his food groups at 2 years old. It would make me a complete nervous wreck thinking about it all the time.
With all this being said, has anyone ever had to give a 2 year old or older child iron? Did it help? Was it bad on stomach,constipation?
We are giving it with apple juice (a little) and then brushing teeth after, so it does not stain teeth.
The other problem we are having, which i think is the reason of his low iron stores, is loose bowels. Meaning, he never really had formed stools ever in his 2. 5 years of life. WE are on a dairy free diet for amost 2 weeks and it sems to not be helping, but we started iron too, so not sure if that is causing him to be loose too. THey say (DOC) iron can cause constipation and/or loose stools. Any ideas on loose stools in a 2 year old?
my son is now two and can tell me when he went to the bathroom in his diaper, he even does the whole pee pee dance when he has to go and hes not wearing his diaper so im sure hes ready to be potty trained. i was wondering if anyone that has any advice or tips on how to get the training started?
I know this chat room says 2 year old but my son just turned 3 and I am unsure of where to turn. I fear the worst when it comes to what i feel are delays within my child. So here is the situation: My son seems to either be over active and this is why he can't focus in and answer a question like "Why dont you want to go on the swing?" and when trying to have a conversation with him he seems to be off on his own little journey and he will answer yes or nos to somethings and then all of sudden start singing something from one of his favorite movies or say something that has nothing to do with what we are talking about. Yet this kid is so smart that hes been able to say his ABC's, 123's, colors, shapes, animals since he was 1 and 1/2 years old. I mean recognizes them and everything, not a memorization. So i want to make sure im not over reacting before i take him to a doctor. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thank you!View Thread
hello, I have a two year old grandson, he is very healthy, but we keep a clean house, but I myself have gotten bit by a spider over a year ago, and this past Saturday, my grandson woke up with a swollen eye area, redness, but no itching, my daughter took him to the ER and the doctor explained that it is a bug bite but not sure what kind of bite, no meds were given, the swelling seemed to go away, but the next day his eye closed shut, my daughter gave him Benadryl for the pain, because he said it hurt him. well, this morning he woke up with the same eye area swollen, redness, and complaining that it hurt, we are so worried, and crying, can anyone help with any suggestions? could it be a spider bite? he also has a bite behind his left ear, and left forehead, I have since cleaned his room, (I always keep it clean) and I put bug spray, I disinfect his room, my daughter and I were thinking the bugs could come in from the floor vent, but not sure, if anyone reads this please respond I can also be reached by email me at email@example.com please, very urgent.....!!!!!View Thread
Hello, My son (2 years old) started with a low grade fever about 3 weeks ago (99.7 - 100.7). I read in a couple older posts in here that could be normal. But once or twice a day he might hit the 101.7 area. He is in great spirits. Plays normal, throws fits (like a normal 2 year old), eats good, isn't losing weight... We have been to our doctor multiple times, they are stumped. All tests come back fine (blood). They did test for lyme disease and nothing. Adeno test came back negative. Epstein Bar came back positive, but they think it was faulty cause they said he would have had it since he was 1 (he just turned 2). They did test his urine and it was fine, but it was urine my wife was able to contain right before going to the doctors. Could it still be a possible UTI? The doctor is now sending us to Tufts Medical center on Friday to see the Blood specialist and Cancer specialist. We are freaking out a little. I am hoping this is just precaution but still a little scary. Is this mostly to rule out everything or could we possibly be in for some VERY bad news! Any info would be great! Thanks very much in advance!View Thread

Hello! So I desperately want a dog for me and my daughter. The problem is I recently brought my daughter around my friend and her 2 pugs. At first she was frightened, but she would later swing at the dogs and try to hit them. I am wondering if there is a dog out there that would be a good match for her or do I just need to wait until she is a little older when she knows that this is not okay. What do you guys think?View Thread

I have been away for a long time..busy at work. But I want to get back on here to be able "to chat" with people. So I have a 2 1/2 year son. And I am currently trying to potty train. Where does everyone else stand with their 2 years and potty training? Are your little ones trained? Well my little guy does really good IF I tell him to go on the potty he will sit down and pee but once in a blue he will tell me on his own that he has to go. He does not want to poop on the potty tho. He did one time and he was so proud of himself but now wants nothing to do with it. Just looking for some feedback on potty training...View Thread
