Not fun!: 2year old twins! The most important thing is to keep them hydrated. I used to sit with my sick kid in front of a Disney movie and give her 1tablespoon of fluid (pedialyte) every 5-10 minutes. If she vomited then I would continue anyways. Usually 1-2 movies and we were back on track. You'll need an assistant! If the children stop crying tears or don't pee in 6 hours you should go to ER. ...Read more

It depends: If your baby is full term and healthy, that is not a dangerous level at all. Prolonged jaundice (>2 wks) may be due to breast milk jaundice, which can take several weeks to clear completely. It is not dangerous, but should be followed by your doctor. ...Read more

Post Partum Blues: You are both home from the hospital and healthy! I hope you have support from a partner, friend or family member. Please contact your OB provider and your baby's provider as soon as possible so they can provide additional support.

17 mth baby boy just started screeching and screaming two wks now. Cant take him to places like church. How do I stop this? I just yell a firm NO

Likely normal: This is likely normal behavior for age. While consistent discipline is good for unwanted behavior, if you yell at baby, baby learns that yelling is a good way to communicate. If you are worried about baby's development, see your pediatrician. ...Read more

I am a boy with a lump under my nipple. Should I be worried?

I am a boy with a lump under my nipple. Should I be worried?

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. This could be a simple cyst but males occasionally have breast cancer. Teens (boys or girls) do get lumps in that area as a normal part of development. For future questions you could provide more info for a better response. ...Read more

Hi im really worried. 3weeks and 4days ago I had a baby boy @ 24weeks who passed away. I'm still having a bloody discharge. Normal?

Could be, yes: After birth or miscarriage, a woman can bleed and spot for a few weeks. The bleeding should become lighter and eventually cease, and then usually by about 6 weeks after, a period may resume. If you are still having severe cramping, clotting, fevers, or pain, see your dr asap. ...Read more

My two year old boy is only 31 inches. Hardly eats anything solid., only has 24oz of milk per day. Should I be worried about his diet and height?

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. If it is the texture he doesn't like, the solid foods can be mashed up and/or made into porridge type soups. ...Read more

You probably already: Know the answer to this. Unless you regularly have the same problem during masturbation, then it is entirely a psychological reaction to a new experience. Familiarity--getting used to it--overcomes phobic reactions. ...Read more

My little boy has been ill for 7 days, now showing blood and protein in his urine, should I be worried? He is being referred now for further tests

Nephritis: Blood and protein are not usually found in the urine. The presence of these cells indicates an inflammatory disruption of normal kidney function. There are several causes of this, and further testing will shed light on the level of seriousness. Try to stay calm during the evaluation process. Your doctor will let you know if or when it is time to worry. ...Read more

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

Friend of ours has 4 yr old just diagnosis with neuroblastoma. My daughter is 8 and worried she'll get it. What do we look for? Can this boy survive?

Not transmissible: Your 8 yr old: it is natural to worry. Does she have any symptoms? Neuroblastoma is a rare condition and is not transmitted from person to person. A visit to your child's pediatrician will help allay your fears. Your friend's 4 year old: it is hard to say. Overall, cure rate in children's cancer is in excess of 80%. Individual cases may vary. ...Read more

I’m A 16 yr boy and worried about masturbation. Lately it has felt less pleasurable/sore. Is it from too much masturbation? Will I be normal again?
