My 12 months baby got an adult flu shot and a baby flu shot ?

My 12 months baby got an adult flu shot and a baby flu shot ?

Oops!: I assume this was an error. Injectable flu vaccine is a killed virus vaccine. Your baby will not get the flu from it. Because there is more antigen in the adult form of vaccine your baby may have more antibody response--fever, aches, fussiness. If your baby got a multidose vial flu it was likely preserved with some thimerosol. This has a little mercury in it. I would talk to the dr about that. ...Read more

3 month old baby's third week of RSV. Now cough sounds like croup although she's been receiving albuterol-nebulizer treatments (6x/day for 4 days, 3x/?

3 month old baby's third week of RSV. Now cough sounds like croup although she's been receiving albuterol-nebulizer treatments (6x/day for 4 days, 3x/?

Hang in there!: We usually try albuterol treatments for RSV in babies. About one third of babies respond. As long as she is not spiking a fever now and her breathing is stable, she has 3 wet diapers daily, hang in there another week. Start to finish, this is a month long illness! Keep all your followup appointments with her pediatrician. I'm glad she's doing well at home! You are doing a great job! ...Read more

My 3 year old got the flu shot 3 days ago, last night she ate mcdonald's chicken nuggets doesn't usually eat that. Diarhea & vomiting all night?

Probably nuggets but: Most likely this was due to the nuggets, which i would never eat or feed to my child (see http://foodmatters.Tv/articles-1/whats-really-in-chicken-mcnuggets-scary) but she could have a GI virus. The flu vaccine temporarily suppresses immune function making one more susceptible to other infections! see http://bit.Ly/15y6igv ; http://www.Whale.To/vaccine/mercola.Html ; http://nyti.Ms/16qehvo. ...Read more

If you are trying for pregnancy then a medicine to induce ovulation can help regulate your cycles. If you do not desire pregnancy then Progesterone tablets or birth control pills are going to help your cycles become regular. ...Read more

Contraception: Unfortunately, the only way to prevent pregnancy 100% is to not have sex. All methods of birth control have a failure rate. Condoms if used correctly are estimated to be at best 90% effective. That means 10 out of 100 women will still get pregnant in a given year. Depo is about 95-97% effective... Iuds are better 99.9%. I even heard of a woman who had a baby after her uterus was removed. ...Read more
