Hard to say: I wouldn't think about a "look" of strep in the throat. It can be hard to predict sometimes by looking. Instead, if a child has a sore throat with a fever in the absence of cold symptoms like cough and runny nose, they should be checked for strep. Whether or not they have tonsils, they can also have headache, abdominal pain, vomiting and/or rashes.

Drink or chew: You don't have to "protect" the babies ears since nothing will happen that will be serious during pressurized airline travel. They may have discomfort just like adults do during the ascent and descent phases of the trip. To minimize this, have the baby nurse or take the bottle at these times. By sucking, they will equalize the middle ear pressure which will make it less painful.

No: Rarely chicken pox can cause serious complications such as encephalitis, pneumonia or skin infection with staph bacteria. Plus, being sick with the chicken pox makes kids feel lousy for a week sometimes with fever, fussiness, itching and poor appetite. The vaccine is safe, effective and will create immunity.
