I am travellings soon with my 3 month old baby to assist to
Hello!I am travellings soon with my 3 month old baby to assist to a business meeting. My husband will take care of her during the day. I am usually breastfeeding and for those 2 travel days, we plan on feeding her with pumped breastmilk in a bottle. However, I am concern that the timing may not be perfect between me providing milk and her being hungry. Would it hurt anything to feed her a bit of formula if I do not arrive on time. Thank you!

My 1 year old son was running a fever of 103.4 and 103.7
My 1 year old son was running a fever of 103.4 and 103.7 over the weekend. The fever broke but then he got this rash all over his body. I took him in to see a doctor and they did a rapid strep test and it was negative. Tonight my son felt cold to the touch so took his temperature and it was 95.1 tympanic but 97.4 temporal. Is this something i should be concerned about. How do I know which one is right. I had been taking his temperature tympanic when he was having the fever. What should I do.
I'm a mom to 2 boys (ages 2 and 5). My 5 year old is
I'm a mom to 2 boys (ages 2 and 5). My 5 year old is extremely worried when me or my husband leave his presence. We have a VERY difficult time leaving George (school, church, babysitter, etc)...his anxiety has gotten so bad that we often talk ourselves out of going somewhere if it means dealing with George's panic attacks. His sleeping behavior is also an issue. He won't go to sleep on his own. He has to wrap his arm over my arm or leg to make him feel comfortable enough to sleep. He's always begging us to stay in his bed. We've tried to break him of this but his petrified cry makes me think I'm torturing him. We usually get in our bed, but if George wakes up before morning time, he runs to our room and climbs in the bed with us. Our 2 year old up until 3 weeks ago went to sleep without problems. We didn't even have to rock him before he was saying, night night. Then all of a sudden he started screaming when we would try to put him in his crib. He tried to climb over rails so the next day we changed to a toddler bed. Each night for several nights after that, it would take 1 1/2 to 2 hours to get Brady to fall asleep. He seemed scared of dark so I turned closet light on. I opened the door. Nothing has helped. I've not put him in our bed bc I learned from my mistake with George. We took a week vacation last week and the boys slept together on a blow up mattress. It wasn't perfect each night but it was better. So we decided when we returned home, we would do the same thing....let the boys co-sleep in George's room. The last 2 nights, it has taken at least an hour to get them to sleep. I'm getting so frustrated!!! Why is sleep SO DIFFICULT in my house??!?!?! And is George's level of anxiety normal???
I am worried I gave my six year old grandson 2 tablespoons
Hello I am worried I gave my six year old grandson 2 tablespoons of adult NyQuil I thought it would be safe if I cut the dosage in half that was 3 hours ago he seems fine but now I am freaking out after I read some things online he also has children's Zyrtec in his system from about 12 noon yesterday. He says he feels fine he acts normal and I only did this because I woke up this morning and he was coughing his head off and I have ran out of children's cough syrup last night
