It takes refocus: The length of time it takes to wean off oxygen varies greatly from child to child. Sounds like your baby has already announced to those who are observant that she is a fighter! rather than focus on the length of time it takes to wean off the supplemental oxygen, celebrate each day and the years and milestones that come with or without the need for oxygen.

Oh so soon!: Puberty consists of a cascade of events that occur over several years. Boys typically begin around 12 but starting as early as 9 and as late as 14 may be normal. Early clues include under arm odor and increase in size of the genitalia. Subsequent signs include growth spurts, voice changes, hair development, muscle growth, acne, and mood changes. For many, the changes start in the blink of an eye!

This too shall pass: First of all know that you are not alone. Often despite best efforts of even those of us who are trained, transiently a child may be a finicky eater. We often say most normal children won't starve themselves.So when they can resist no longer, offer healthy balanced options. Lastly to bridge the gap, use approved nutritional supplements. Importantly, remember to make mealtime fun and not stressful.
