See your doctor: Your baby may (MAY) have staphylococcal bacteria in the nose, causing recurrent skin infections. If so, this could respond to a simple antibiotic ointment applied to the nose. Don’t diagnose it yourself - see a Pediatrician

Possibly: They are of two types. The leiomyoma occurs in the skin or gut but the common form is the uterine fibroid. Rhabdomyomas are rare tumors of muscles, they occur in childhood and often become malignant assuming this is a uterine fibroid, if it were in the proper anatomic location it could cause vascular compromise, nerve compression, pelvic cramping or even a referred pain pattern.

Several suggestions: Evaluate your routine to determine how long it takes before the discomfort begins. This will help you determine when to stand and stretch, do isometric exercises, or a combination of both. Evaluate your chair and if possible, obtain one that has at least three adjustment. Seat height, armrest, and lumbar.

Who told you that ?: The american academy of pediatrics & many other advisory groups have promoted sleeping on a babies back since the early 90's. Since that time we have seen a 40-50% drop in crib death over that period. I know of no one that advises belly sleeping for any reason, although if baby rolls into that position after 6m i don't try to change it. Tummy time while awake can help build upper body strength.

Blisters under: Toenails are quite common in sports participants. If you're able to drain it, apply a topical antibiotic and wrap it in a band aid, that's about the best you can do short term. You might want to check on the size of the soccer boots. If too small, they can be making things worse. Also, i hope the coach/trainer has them wearing running shoes for the pure running workouts.

She might try wearing two pair of socks on each foot and see if that helps. This was something I was taught back in high school by my coach and it worked for me. ( to prevent the blisters, not treat them.)
