Approx. 1-4 days: Throat infection with strep bacteria can cause a variety of symptoms such as soreness, raspy voice, difficulty swallowing, fevers, mucus production, etc. Due to its association with inflammation of the throat and its nearby structures. Symptoms usually begin within a few days (one to four days) after contracting the infection (incubation period). Good luck.

How can I wean my daughter off the bottle?

If she is ready...: ...Take the bottle away. If she is physically capable of eating off a spoon or drinking from a cup, she will do so when hungry or thirsty enough.
But then, be sure you really need to wean right now.

Masturbation: Grinding is a type of masturbation. Only advice would be that she needs to be instructed she should limit grinding only in private place.

Talk to your doctor: Durable power of attorney is a legally binding document. However it should only be active if you have become incompetent to make decisions for yourself. Talk with your primary care physician, privately.

Weakness of windpipe: Malacia is weakness of a portion of the airway (trachea is the first portion of the airway and bronchomalacia is weakness of airways further down in the lungs). It can occur when someone is born premature, after a bad infection or after a tracheostomy. Usually wheezing in the upper airway with shortness of breath is common. Breathing tests can help suggest it is present / other tests often need.
