Chronic fatigue?: No clear association between ebv infection, e.g., infectious mono, and chronic fatigue syndrome has not been established.

Mono is no fun: Sometimes mono drags on for months to more than a year. Hopefully her situation will improve with even more time. I would still suggest she follows closely with her doctor should this continue.

How can we teach our baby to sleep so he doesn't wake his brother?

Self Consolation: Between four and six months of life a baby has the ability to learn the skill of self consolation, this is an important life skill for parents to help their baby learn! so you'll want to put the baby down after your evening routine and last breastfeeding/bottle when he is sleepy, yet not asleep! he will learn to suck a thumb, rub a blankie, twirl his hair, etc... And console himself.

How can I prepare my child for the arrival of a sibling?

Talk about it: Talk about the arrival of your newborn. Get your older children involved in the planning. Talk about their role in raising the new baby, whether it be fetching diapers or laundry. Let them help stock the nursery. Even toddlers can put items in lower drawers and on shelves. This teaches responsibility and makes them feel like valuable members of the family.

What can I do to keep my baby's crying from waking his siblings?

Go to...: Another room. Caving in to feed right away or to put baby in bed with you right away, just so baby doesn't wake siblings is not the right thing to do. Go rock the baby in another room, hopefully far away so won't disturb anyone.

Can antibiotic use cause complication in mono patients?

Possibly: For the mono patients i see as an ENT doctor i usually prescribe steroids and an antibiotic. The patients usually have huge infected tonsils and i treat with antibiotics to prevent bacterial superinfection of the virally damaged tissue. In my years of experience this has been successful in not only helping the throat symptoms but preventing later secondary recurrent tonsillitis.

Need Gynecology Eval: Vaginal bleeding is not always your menstrual peiod. Sometimes women get miscarriages that happen about the time that they expect their periods. Also, there are a lot of conditions that can develop in the uterus that can cause bleeding such as fibroids, uterine polyps, cancer, infections, etc. Your sister should go and see her pcp or a gynecologist for an evaluation of her vaginal bleeding.
