We are moving into a house that has baseboard heaters. I have heard that babies can get 2nd degree burns from sticking their fingers in there, and am worried about DD. I am considering getting covers for them, but they are really expensive like over $100 each. Does anyone have BB heaters and what have you done to protect your LO's? Thanks!View Thread
I would advise checking with your pedi before you give any supplemental vitamins. I know it is possible for a baby to get too much vitamins and have problems. They should also have ideas about how much formula she needs. Have you tried giving her formula before the solids so she is hungry still? Also, my DD will go through phases where she isn't as interested in nursing and I always worry that she isn't getting enough but then she will go back to her norm. Has this been going on for a long time?View Thread
Congrats to you all! I can barely handle caring for one, pretty sure I would freak out if I got PG again. I guess if it wasn't for the sleepless nights I would be ok with it. I honestly think that is the only thing I don't enjoy about raising DD. All the best!View Thread
Wow, that is infuriating. She tells you that there are enough people around to do something if it is really bad, yet at the same time she tells you it is not your business. So logical. Someone should have called CPS, I would think that classifies as neglect.View Thread
Not sure about what has been causing it in the past, but sometimes a constipated baby will pass very wet stool (the only thing that can make it past). That also could go along with him not wanting to eat. Or maybe he has a stomach bug? I would take him in and if you are finding that your current pedi is not giving you helpful answers, go elsewhere or request to see a specialist.View Thread
I am glad you are going to see a specialist, I am sure they will have some good ideas. Yes eczema can often be caused by food allergies. My DD has had pretty bad eczema at times, but I think hers is more environmental. We have had great success usingA Aveno Baby soothing relief moisture cream and laundry detergent without fragrence or perfume. We also don't use dryer sheets anymore. This has seemed to help her. I also went off of milk and soy products (I BF) and am just no starting to add them back in. DD gets a bad rash on her cheeks when she is teething I think form all the drool. I put a little vaseline on it and that seems to help .. Good luck, keep us posted!View Thread
Yikes. I have heard that allergy testing in babies isn't always that accurate. Maybe it is wrong. Have you noticed her reacting to all of those foods? What did your pedi tell you to do? If you want to avoid all of those, I would talk to a nutritionist ASAP. They well help you come up with healthy alternatives. Good luck!View Thread
I hate it too when I can't make DD's appts. I always grill DH when he gets home, but I often wonder how much he already forgot! If you have a voice recorder you could send it along with DH and see if your pedi would be fine with you recording the apt.View Thread
Hi! Just wanted to let you all know that I started a new exchange for parents of biracial/multiracial children. It can be found on the main exchanges search page in the parenting section. Check it out if you get a chance. We could use some members! View Thread
