My son is at 3 years old. He could not speak until now. We assume he can hears well because he is interacting with iPad & TV shows. Recently he develop a habit of putting his left hand into his mouth, when it is wet with his saliva he will rub his left ears with it. What can be the case or symptoms?
He could not speak proper word, not even Mama or Papa. Recently he watched YouTube and try to repeat the alphabet, some alphabet such as 'S' and 'X' he got it right, the rest has more of phonics sound.View Thread

I am new to this community but I have a 3 1/2 yrs old girl. she has been potty trained but is getting diaper rash on her bottom (red rash). She has had diaper rash before when she was wearing diapers. She has stopped eating fruit such as tomatos, grapes, oranges, and blueberries. To see if that's the cause and its not. Please help.

I am so overwhelmed right now. I'm excited and I'm feeling guilty all at the same time. My daughter will be 4 in a week and a half and she has become much more clingy that ever before since she found out she is going to be a big sister. I am 10 weeks along. She talks about being a big sister constantly and acts excited but the issue I am having now is that my husband and I cannot get her to stay in her own bed. We have tried just about everything. I even brought her bed into our bedroom so she could be right next to us but in her big girl bed and she will not stay in it. I can't have her sleeping with us much longer. I feel so bad.. Plus I'm feeling guilty that she is not going to be the "only" one anymore. I know it will all be okay and this is a common feeling but eek.
Honestly I would appreciate any thoughts anyone has on getting her to sleep in her own bed. I don't know what to do.
My 3 1/2 yo granddaughter picks at the skin on her face. She picks sores, then repeatedly picks the scabs off. She has been doing this for years. She has scars from old sores. My son and daughter in law put band aids on, but she just picks them off or chooses a new spot. She does this any time--when playing, doing nothing and even sleeping. She does not have any rashes, eczema or other illnesses or allergies. Suggestions?View Thread

my healthy 10 yr old just showed me 2 fingers where the nail is peeling away at the cuticle. unlike other posts she has not had hand, foot mouth disease, her fingers and toes did however have some skin peeling a week ago. I put it off to her playing in a large mound of fresh dirt dug up from a rebuilding project in town. now Im wondering if there was something caustic in the dirt. The nail underneath looks healthy and there is no sign of injury or infection. Suggestions?View Thread

I have a 15 year old son, who I just discovered that on his left hand his finger nails are coming off and new nails are growinf right behind the old nail. It almost looks like the new nail is pushing the old nail right off. I have never seen this before and I have three other children. I have every ones post and their children are much younger than my son. If anyone knows why this is happening please let me know. His doctor cannot tell me anything. He is blank when it comes to this.View Thread
my son is 3 and a half, i jst had a baby almost 2 months ago. now that she is home my son is schreeching and crying about the littlest things, claimg that i dont like him or love him. i realize hes probably doing this bc he wants attention, so i do set aside time for just him and i. and everytime he says i dont like him i hug him and say i love him, but im not sure how to stop the acting out or the crying about everything, he has become so sensitive to everything, i dont want him screaming at the top of his lungs everytime i discipline him for things he does wrong, and it seems like even when i DO discipline he doesnt learn, he just keeps doing the same things and he knows hes going to go in his time out chair. im just kind of backed against a wall bc i dont want to be too hard on him esp when his whole world is changing with his having to share the attention with a new baby. but i dont want him thinking this behavior is ok. he was SO good before i gave birth, so polite, never screamed, and if he acted up and was put in time out...that was the end of it. advice?View Thread

My DD is very articualte in contrast to her brother. Yesterday I was talking about picking up some donuts on the way home from church and asked if she wanted a white one w/sprinkles or a brown one w/sprinkles. First she said white one w/sprinkles and then said "Actually, I think I want an apple fritter." I told her that was too big for her but was amazed at how she said it.View Thread
I thought I would share this link. It has some really good snacks for toddlers. I know my son eats constantly and loves peanut butter and cheese, but we all know what happens when you eat too much of that!! So I was searching for some different ideas for snacks.

my 3jr,8month old daughter had the hand foot mouth virus about a month ago. she had the rash over her hands, feet, inside the mouth and over her genital area. She also had a high fever at first and then the rashes followed. After her 10 day period of incubation, her hands and feet started to peel within 2 weeks time. Another 2 weeks passed and know her finger and toe nails start to peel. This is by far the worst skin virus that I have ever seen! There should be a vacine available for this type of virus and doctors should be more informed about all the symptomes.View Thread
Izayah is 3 and will be 4 in February. He is still sleeping in bed with me. He was, at several different times, in his own bed. I was going to attempt to get him back into it right before the baby was born but since the baby would be in the room with me until he is sleeping thru the night, I figured it would cause jealousy betweent them because Zak can be there and Zay isnt allowed so I have allowed him to continue sleeping with me. Now that Zak is closer to sleeping thru the night, I am trying to find the best way to get Zay back into his own room and bed, but he has horrible separation anxiety. When I do put him to sleep in his own bed, whether its at night or just for a nap, he wakes up screaming. And if I wake up before him in the morning and go downstairs, he wakes up crying because I'm not there. I know this is my fault for allowing it to continue but I know this isnt good for him and I dont want to enable this behavior because it will cause major problems when/if his father starts keeping him overnight. I am still debating on waiting until I move the baby to his room or just starting the transition before so that he's not disturbing the baby during the adjustment period.... ANY TIPS would be great!!!! I don't know whether to try the Cry It Out method or try sneaking out after he's asleep or what, but something has got to give!! PLEASE HELP!!!!View Thread
My daughter has seemed to have stomach issues non stop for the past three years. It always changes from constipation, to diarrhea to vomiting. She's lactose intolerant, but other than that, she has not been diagnosed with anything and her pediatrician doesn't seem concerned. I however, am. Is this normal? I don't know if i'm over-reacting, or if i should demand they run test? Has anyone had any of these issues with their babies?View Thread
I have a 4yr old and her nails are peeling back also. She has not had the hand mouth foot diease. She was diganoised with HSP(Henoch-Schonlein Purpura) over a year ago. Ever since she was diagnoised with this it just seems like different things are happening. She started breaking out in a different rash. I have took her to a Allergist and she had blood work done. All test came back negative. She has been taking Claritin for a month now. I noticed her nails peeling back 5 days ago and its really worrying me. Does anyone know what could be causing this?View Thread

Posting here since you all might have a better idea. We never used a sitter with DD#1, only family watched her. Next weekend we are having a college age girl watch our 1 yr old for about 6 hrs. During this time she'll have to fed her dinner and put her to bed. How much should we pay her?View Thread
Hello, My 3 year old daughter does not seem to be mentally developing as a 3 year old should. Her birthday...
Posted by An_248834
My 3 year old daughter does not seem to be mentally developing as a 3 year old should. Her birthday is the end of Sept. A child this age should say several hundred words, she can say maybe 10 or so if that. She can dress herself if the clothing is simple such as a dress, tshirt or shorts. She cannot pull pants on herself. Same with shoes, she can put slip ons easy, but cannot get tennis shoes on. Her mentality is that of an 18 month old baby.
Her doctor will not discuss anything but finally said at the last appointment she is a little slow but headstart will be good for her. And that there are different degrees of autism.
She fell and hit her head between her eyes at age 1 and required stitches. At age 18 she started having absent seizures but they have disappeared and takes no medication. Not sure if that has anything to do with her mental development?
We can obviously see something is wrong but the dr's won't listen. Are we just expecting too much from her and she will catch up or should we get a second opinion?View Thread
Hey ladies, Its been about 2months since I posted and I hope all is well with everyone and their familes!
Izayah is a big brother now and loving it! He is very protective and loving with his baby brother, Zakiyah. It really surprised me because I was extremely worried about him being jealous of the baby but he wants to help all the time. He's always telling me he loves "his baby" and that he wants to hold him. When we are in the car if Zak starts crying Zay will leave over and sing to him and even more amazing, it usually helps. Zay and Zak are so in tuned to each other that when Zay starts crying so does Zak and Zay has gotten Zak to smile more than I have just talking to him. I was really worried about how I was going to handle having two as a single mom but my boys are amazing and make it easy!
How is everyone else and their LOs? Whats new moms?View Thread
Hello everyone. New here and had a few concerns about my 3yr old. I'm not a new mother by anyones imagination (this is #3 after 2 of my own & 2 step-sons), but this has me stumped. Recently my 3yr old started having anxiety (I think) issues at bedtime, kind of a frantic "mommy stay with me" . She was doing fine sleeping in her own room until her older sister moved her room around. We moved it back & I've removed all the toys that are scarey or frighten her at night, & we follow the same bedtime routine as always. I lay on a mat until she goes to sleep, sometimes all night. I knew the first time I did this it was a bad habit, but really didn't know what to do. None of the other kids have had this issue and my husband is ready to smack her bum and close the door. I'm not sure this will solve the problem. My daughter is VERY strong willed and I have to wonder if this is a manipulative move on her part. I've always been a stay-at-home mom until this last spring, but she's only gone 2 1/2 days and she loves to go to the sitter (not day care) to play with her 2 daughters. Anyone have any ideas that I can try? She has favorite blankets/toys and she just got a dreamlite. Plus she has nitelights in her room.View Thread
