My 2.5 year old has a fever it came on yesterday after his

My 2.5 year old has a fever it came on yesterday after his midday nap. He was quite inconsolable, we went to the doctors and they couldn't find source other than one ear being mildly red. He was given nuerofen and perked up and was pretty happy. I couldn't get any more medicine into him during the night as he is very difficult to give it to. He woke up this morning and was miserable. I managed to get more nuerofen into him. He was only up 20 mins and has now gone back to sleep. Is it safe to let him sleep? Will he be okay? I'm a first time mum and very worried thanks.

Our baby is 3 days old now and he will not wake up enough to

Our baby is 3 days old now and he will not wake up enough to feed. It's been 6 hours now since his last feeding. The best we can get from him is some upset crying and some slight eye openings but he goes right back to sleep. We've tried everything the internet has offered as far as ways to wake him go. Tickling his feet, his back, his head, a wet towel, moving his arms and legs, stripping him to diapers and doing all the above. We are starting to get a bit panicky as he is our first born and everything we have read and been told says he needs to eat every 2-3 hours. Please help.

Have been told about infant death syndrome, but what do we look for when baby is on her stomach? I watch her constantly. Notice her breathing around her waste line and elsewhere. Should I be looking elsewhere as well? If so, what should I be looking at specifically?San Francisco, CA

My son is 2 years old. We have fought a battle of constant

HI my son is 2 years old. We have fought a long battle of constant ear infections and fluid build up for over 8 months. Sometimes the fluid would remain in his ears for a month at a time. My son would always hold his ears but we assumed it was because of the ear infections. On October 31st 2016 we had ear tubes put in and we thought that would solve his problem. He still remained in pain and constantly holding his ears so we assumed it was his molars bothering him. Now it's been a year and a half and he has all his teeth and his ears are healthy but yet he is still in pain. He places one finger behind the lower part of the ear lobe (lobule) is that meets right at the top of the jaw bone and applies pressure. He does it nonstop all day everyday. There are days that he wakes up screaming in pain just holding his ears. He whines all throughout the day because of them. I have had his ears checked multiple time by different doctors and ENT. I have talked to pediatricians and they just dismiss me but I know when my child is in pain and something is hurting him whether it's his ears or his head. My son can't talk yet so he cant tell me what's wrong. Is there something that this could be or is there any other doctor I could take him to? I am so tired of my child being in pain everyday and I just don't know what could be wrong or what I should do. Any suggestions?

Behavioral/mental health question: My daughter Isabelle is 5

Behavioral/mental health question: My daughter Isabelle is 5 years old she has a half sister, aged 9. I have sole custody of both kids. In the last year Isabelle has become increasingly more attached to me. Refuses to sit near anyone but me, won't sleep by herself, doesn't want to go to daycare, wants me to play with her and no one else, follows me.around constantly, asks for hugs and kisses literally every 3 to 5 minutes, says "i love you mommy" literally in her sleep and every 3 to 5 minutes while awake. At first it was sweet and cute but now I'm concerned she's developing some sort of attachment issues or has some sort of emotional issues. The reason I mention custody is because her dad left when I was still.pregnant with her never came back. Her sisters dad takes both of them every other weekend so she's not left out. She knows hes not her dad but has recently started calling him daddy. We are not together in any capacity. I'm concerned about her mental stability.... should I be?
