How can I make the experience of getting shots less traumatizing for my son?

Soothe and prepare: For babies, it may help to feed him while he's getting the injections if your doctor's office allows -- breastfeeding or a bottle with sugar water have been shown to decrease the apparent experience of pain. For older children, never threaten to have the doctor give him a shot if he doesn't behave. Do prepare him in advance and never lie or trick him into behaving by promising no shots.

Should I keep my son out of school until his impetigo is completely healed?

Dr. Henry Bloom

No: Though many experts reccommend only local treatement, without culture, our studies in families show that a culture is needed to see if impetigo is staph, strep or both, and what antibiotic it is sensitive to. Also, since there may be infection in the respiratory tract that is infectious to others, local treatment will not prevent spread, without appropriate oral antibiotics.

Should I gave my son water during eating or only after?

Why give water : Depending on the age of the child & the type of feeding water may or may not be necessary.A breast or bottle fed child that is urinating regularly is getting the nutrition they need without it.A few ounces after feeding may help wash the teeth or the child with firm stools might benefit.I have a few grandmothers that insist on water during the summer & i prefer it to juice as a supplement.
A 37-year-old member asked:

Will my son pass a 0.5 inch glass marble that he ate a few days ago?

2 doctor answers6 doctors weighed in
Dr. James Ferguson
Pediatrics 46 years experience
Yes: If your child ingests a smooth walled foreign body like a marble & it made it past the swallowing tube into the stomach, it should easily pass thru the rest of the bowell without problems. Some irregular objects, like staples, tacks, etc may create problems if they injure the area they pass thru but stewed okra fed to the child soon after injestion can encapsulate them and ease their passage.
