Yes : In general children over the age of 2 can use that cream once or twice a day. The most important thing is to try and determine the reason it is needed. There are many skin conditions that will respond well to that lotion but others that may respond better to something else. Having a provider examine her first can be helpful.

Our first daughter was born 8 weeks premature 7 years ago. What are the chances of having another premature birth?

Elevated risk: Women who have preterm deliveries are more likely than other women to have preterm labor again. You should discuss the use of 17 hydroxy Progesterone injections with your doctor as a preventative measure. You may want to ask how they manage prenatal care in women with a history of preterm birth to make sure you understand and agree with the plan.

Bedtime routine: First of all you need to determine what is an appropriate bedtime for your daughter. Different children require different amounts of sleep. If your child is tired but fighting sleep then it is time for bed. Try to create a bedtime routine which gradually relaxes the child before bedtime. This may entail a warm bath and story time. Vigorous play or exciting tv or video games should be avoided.

Normal!: It is not uncommon in some children. If the stool is formed , child is growing i would not worry about it. It is often from green leafy vegetables, coloring agents in the food or simply due to rapid transit from small intestine to large intestine where it normally is tuned brown.
