Wait and watch: What you described does not seem to be any thing serious. It is unlikely that you had convulsions. You may consult a doctor if there is recurrence.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex.
Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

My 3 yr old has a fever of 100.8. She has done nothing but sleep. She doesn't have any cold or flu symptoms. What do I do? She has been shivering. I've been giving her tylenol (acetaminophen).

My 3 yr old has a fever of 100.8. She has done nothing but sleep. She doesn't have any cold or flu symptoms. What do I do? She has been shivering. I've been giving her tylenol (acetaminophen).

Fevers: Fevers for the most part aren't dangerous and are just the body's natural reaction to fighting off an infection. Most of these infections are viral and may be accompanied by runny nose, sore throat, congestion, mild rash, or nothing at all. Since fevers aren't dangerous, we usually treat the fever with Acetaminophen or Ibuprofen just to make the child more comfortable as their body fights the illness. You can also give them a luke-warm water bath to make them more comfortable and make sure they stay hydrated.

"red flags" that we look for with fever to indicate something more serious is going on are:
-fevers that last 5 days or more
-fevers persistently above 104f orally
-a child that acts very sick - very irritable or difficult to wake
-difficulty breathing
-vomiting, diarrhea, refusal to drink, or dehydration
-a purple rash, esp on the legs
-stiff neck
-any complaints of pain such as the ear, throat, stomach or a joint

as always, use your judgement. If you think that your child is ill, err on the side of caution and call your child's doctor. ...Read more

Tach during sleep nightly, shaky, shivering, nervous feeling in chest, headache. Wakes me up. Go to emerg, attack over. What doc should I see?

If they keep happening and your tests are negative, they may be panic attacks which may lead to a Psychiatric referral.

How can I change my babies sleeping routine?

How can I change my babies sleeping routine?

Work your magic.: If you can handle the crying and your baby can self soothe, at around the 4th month of life, giving them love and getting them to bed at an early consistent hour can work wonders. You can leave them to cry (heartbreaking for many) for increasing amounts of time until they get to sleep. An alternative will be to remain with them cribside, gently supporting them, until they fall asleep. ...Read more

Back to sleep: The back to sleep campaign is designed to make sure you always put your baby to sleep on their back, which significantly decreases the risk of sids. However, by the time your baby can roll over (around 4 months) the risk of crib death is much decreased. Still put your baby to sleep on their back but you don't need to lose sleep worrying if they roll over. ...Read more
