Is it weird if my two year old still doesn't have molars?

Not really...: Boys tends to take longer to erupt their molars than girls...we don't know why. Pediatric dentists deal with not only years but 'years and months.' If your child just turned two, then this is normal but if they are approaching three years old, I would have them evaluated by a dentist. ...Read more

My two year old son has crustacean allergies. Will this condition go away or is it for life?

Can't Tell Now: Many children outgrow their food allergies but not all. For things like milk, egg and wheat, around 80% outgrow them. For nuts, it's as bad as only 20% outgrowing them. Shellfish/crustaceans are somewhere in between. There are new treatments in development though that may allow an allergist to desensitize food allergic patients in the next few years. ...Read more

My two year old's viral fever was gone until a relapse tonight. Are relapses common at night?

My two year old's viral fever was gone until a relapse tonight. Are relapses common at night?

When they are not sleeping well you check their temperature more often, so you are more likely to find it when they are expected to be asleep. The time of fever is incidental to the illness, not because the sun going down changes the pattern. ...Read more

Can be: The average toddler is expected to get 5-7 respiratory illnesses/yr to age 5 and 1-3 diarrhea illnesses in the same time frame. To space it every other month would be pretty common.
