My 15 year 11 month old daughter has a dance concert in a week ... Energy was told glucodin tablet?

Natural is best!: There are certainly times when we need an energy boost. A combo of carbs and protein are great for this. Something like a piece of cheese and fruit, a cup of yogurt, or peanut butter and crackers are good examples. Remember to keep up hydration as well, as that can boost energy! I do not recommend the use of other items, especially for children. Good diet, sleep, and exercise are best! ...Read more

My 11 month old daughter just started grinding her 2 top and 2 bottom teeth what can I do to prevent this?

Don't worry: Children grind baby teeth to accommodate for jaw growth and because their minds are so active. It's not unusual.

It happens: Women seldom ovulate during their first year of menses and that leaves estrogen to drive the pattern.Irregularity is common with variations from 2 wks to 90 days in some.
