"teething" or fussiness can be from ear infections--so be wary. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Unnecessary : 50 years ago infants were fed solids early & frequently to make up for deficiencies in the evaporated milk formulas moms made at home. Today early feeds are an antiquated practice & do not add to the child's nutrition. Today solids are viewed as a tutorial to transition baby to the table. Starting at 6m as the tongue thrust fades & baby begins to sit is early enough. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Should we extract baby teeth molars, in a 7 year old, if the adult teeth are not present underneath?

If there are no adult teeth to replace them, they will be very important as the child gets older to keep the all the teeth in the upper and lower arch in the correct place and position. So if they are not creating a problem for the child, please keep them in place. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

My year old daughter (who has just gotten teeth) is starting to bite when she doesn't get her way or becomes frustrated; me, other babies, toys, etc.?
Feedback: Keep telling her that biting isn't nice and offer her words to express her needs instead of biting. If you (and her other caregivers) are consistent, biting should quickly give way to more acceptable behavior. Also, if you ever "play bite" with her, stop now, as it makes her feel that biting is ok in some circumstances, when it really is not. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

You could also use coconut oil as it has antiseptic properties and will not harm your baby. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
