My son is 5 1/2 months old. Started splits at 4 months. He
HelloMy son is 5 1/2 months old. Started splits at 4 months. He eats 2 oz of fruit and 1 oz of vegetable a day. He o my eats 20-24 oz of formula a day.... and even so it's hard to get him to take it... he will suck 1-2 oz from the bottle and after I have to feed him the formula from an adult glass/cup (scares me of chocking) or mix it with cereal and spoon feed.he is 17.5 lbs and 261/2 inches long. The pediatrician says 24 oz is the minimum and it's a daily struggle to get him to eat that much. He wakes up at 6.30 and drinks 3-4 oz max (after sleeping for 8 hrs), then 5-6 oz at 10 am, then 5-6 oz at 2 pm, then 6 oz at 7 and 3-4 oz at 10 pm. Thoughts?? Thank knyou!!
My daugther is 6 years old and has for the last 5 days had a
Hi. My daugther is 6 years old and has for the last 5 days had a fever. Starting at about 39,5C and now on the 5th day it's about 38,3C. She is playful and happy. But has a very bad cough. Usually she does not have fever for that long and haven't been sick for the last year. I am quite worried about the fever lasting that long.
I am lost with a sensitive situation related to my 16's year
Hello,I am lost with a sensitive situation related to my 16's year old son. Since he was a baby, I couldn't pull back his foreskin. He was still a child when our family doctor sent him to an urologist. That urologist "butchered" him so badly that he never wanted to go back to any doctor. I continued to try to solve the problem and talked to a pediatrician, who we knew (in France), who prescribed a cream called "Dermoval-0,05%-Propionate Clobetasol". My son agreed using it, and he said that it helped a little bit because the skin became thinner, but the problem remained. As times passed by, he didn't want us to even talk about it until last year when he asked us to take him to a specialist again. We got our actual family doctor (a different one) to refer another urologist. I went to the appointment with my son, and right there I didn't like how the specialist approached the situation. he didn't find "normal" that I'd accompany my son to be examined, and was very evasive with the solution to my son's problem, leaving in our hands the decision of doing a circumcision or not. We wanted a specialist's advice and ended up being asked money to do an operation, which should be covered by the OHIP, since this is a medical problem. I went back to my family doctor and requested a second opinion with a different specialist, but my doctor said that he couldn't help me more with this problem. My son needs to solve his problem, and every time that we talk about it, he is totally stressed and, as time pass by, the situation becomes worse. I thought in taking my son to the hospital because most of the time he has infections...Could I have some light, please? Thank you.
My 5 year old daughter had a 5 year checkup in July. Very
My 5 year old daughter had a 5 year checkup in July. Very healthy kid. Peanut allergy and very mild eczema but otherwise never really been terribly sick at all her whole life. At 5 year checkup in July pediatrician noted a swollen superficial cervical lymph node on right side of neck...barely looked at it. Didnt seem too worried. Just said "come back if it gets bigger" --- 3 months has passed. It has not gotten bigger at all. It is nontender but defenitely firm. If she is sleeping and I feel it it almost feels like two "buckshot" ones right next to eachother instead of 1. It is very mobile. Approx 1cm total. (not each node) Out of curiousity, I looked at old photos of her. Found a photo from about 2 years ago, where her head is turned and I can see the same exact node. It looks the same size as it does now. At what point do I need to go back in? And should I really be worried if it appears to have been there for 2 years? What is it? Thank you!
I have a question regarding if sleep in my childhood (ages
I have a question regarding if sleep in my childhood (ages 5-18) have affected my brain development. I averaged 7 hours of sleep. I know the recommended amount is 8-10 hrs especially in the early stages of childhood. Would this amount of sleep I received adversely affected my cognitive abilities inthe long term like lack of brain development. Sixth through Ninth grade I was top of my class so obviously I have no major deficits but the nonetheless could I have some underdevelopment? I am 19 now10
