Are l'il critters gummy bites multivitamin good for kids and adults?

Are l'il critters gummy bites multivitamin good for kids and adults?

OK but not greatest: I am a big believer that everyone should take a good quality multivitamin but, while better than some, you can do a lot better. It's good that it does not have synthetic dyes or high fructose corn syrup but it has synthetic E (which is toxic) and folic acid, which many can't utilize, and is low in potency. For gummy vits Smarty Pants Kids Complete is much better! See http://tinyurl.com/mzrkbx8 ...Read more

Why are some toddlers teeth pointed all over?He was bottle fed. Active and alert.

Erupting : Erupting incisors may have small bumps on the edge. These are normal developmental structures call mammelons. As your child starts chewing solid food these mammelons will wear down and the edges will appear smooth. You will also see the same phenomena with the erupting permanent teeth. By the way you should think about scheduling you child's first dental appointment with a pediatric dentist once his front teeth come in. This will introduce them to the experience in a non-threatening way. ...Read more

Just chop some up w/a knife and add nuts or cinnamon if you like (oregano for vegetables). Variety is key. Peace and good health. ...Read more

How safe are large dogs with small kids?

How safe are large dogs with small kids?

Depends on the breed: Many large dogs are better than small dogs for children due to biting and personality.

Are there any interactions between diphenhydramine and l-theamine? Can both be taken together safely in recommended amounts for sleep?

Are there any interactions between diphenhydramine and l-theamine? Can both be taken together safely in recommended amounts for sleep?

No: I am not sure what l-theanine is. However, the only dietary supplements/herbals i know of which should be avoided when taking Diphenhydramine are valerian, st. John's wort, kava kava, and gotu kola; as the combination may enhance CNS depression. I am doubtful that whatever l-theanine is will compound any sedative effects you may experience with Diphenhydramine alone. ...Read more
