Halloween is quickly approaching and it's hard to find wholesome family friendly Halloween costumes, especially for women.
Most of the costumes are a bit too sexy for the family events we attend and I'm not a big fan of the scary or gross side of Halloween for kids.
For our family of three I have thought about a knife, fork and spoon, Wizard of Oz - Lion, Scarecrow, Tin-man, or mild mannered skeletons (black sweatshirt and pants with cartoony bones painted on them).
What have you come up with? Can't wait to hear your ideas!
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.
Do you have friends that you've tried to get to join you here in community, but they feel they don't have the time to spend? Maybe Answers is a tool they can use for quick access.
Anyone can ask a question, and anyone can answer a question. Experts, partner organizations, staff and moderators will also be responding to some questions.
We invite you all to go in and check it out today. If you have any questions about this new tool, post them here and we'll try to help you out.
One piece of advice I heard - When the newborn is crying or fussing and you are playing with your older child. Look over to the infant and say "I'm sorry I can't get you right now, I'm playing with your sister. I will be there in 3 minutes." The older child will feel important at that moment and not as upset when you leave to pick up the newborn.
She does sound like she is uncomfortable, I am sorry to hear she has been struggling with this.
If this is interfering with her daily activities please do contact your doctor to have this evaluated. It may be helpful to create a journal (similar to this or this one ) to see if you can see a pattern, food or activity that is associated with this.
Please let us know what you find out and how she is doing.
