so i took him to see his pedi and she said he had a mild ear infection that didnt need an antibiotic and he had fluid in his ears that she thinks is caused from a cold that he has and if his temp gets to 102 to take him to urgent care if avaiable appts or to take him to emergency over the weekend so i guess its a waiting game to see if he gets better or worse by the way what is fluid in the ears anyone knowView Thread
hi i dont see where your going to have problems and all we kept saying when our son turns 18 months the paci we didnt want him having in first place was going in trash low and be hold my son threw it in the trash one day and so we kept giving himm the pacis we were finding all over the house that day and he had thrown every single one of them out we had no fussing nothing so we took him to toy store and let him get a toy for beeing a big boy about it a friend of mine actually told me to have him put it in the mail box so the paci fairy could bring him a treat and see how it worked and what you do is take him to the mailbox tell him theres a fairy that will bring him a surprise if he gave the fairy his paci then the next day take him back but make sure you put a treat in there but im not sure everything has been so easy as that with my son bottles were gone by 13 months he was potty trained by 2 in half he just keeps waking up and not wanting everything lol now if only eating could be what was easy for us lolView Thread

hi from one parent to another my son too did not have a binkie till he was about 1 in half months old only reason we gave him one was cause he was premie and all his pedi told us he should have one that there was studies out there that sugguested they might possibly help in preventing sids in infants rather that is a myth or not im not sure but what i can say is you can try to wing him off it but i didnt have too much problems with winging my son off when he was 18 months old as matter of fact he woke up one moring and just threw all of his binkies out we had so many cause hed just loose them but we found like six of them day before then he threw them out we took him to store and he got a new toy so what im saying is i might wait til round 1 well good luck i hope i didnt scare youView Thread
