Not fun!: 2year old twins! The most important thing is to keep them hydrated.

Depends: What we can see as a profile lists you as a 35 yo male. If that is true and you are not asking for a teen boy (or girl) then you need to be evaluated.

Review his diet...: Review his diet with his pediatrician. A 2 year old should have a regular diet, with similar solid foods as a 3 year old. A diet of mainly milk usually is not healthy enough.

My little boy started a week ago a tic where he jump and sometimes make noises, I am really worried cos it s everyday and before he goes to sleep.?
Probably okay: There is a condition particularly in little boys that I refer to as "need to move". They often can not sit still and jump around and make noises. This is often after having to sit quietly at school - in the afternoon when they come home or evening when trying to relax. It is usually not a serious problem. If he is doing it during class to the point of being disruptive, he may need treatment. ...Read more
