Is it normal for toddlers to be afraid of water? Also what can I so for my toddler if he wets the bed a a lot?

Typically-developing: Toddlers can have fears. If he's scared of hot or rushing water or water on his face, run his bath before he gets in the tub. Get 2 small watering cans, one for him & one to rinse his hair with. Fill it from the sink. Put a bath cloth over his eyes. Get tub crayons, paints & toys only for bath or pool. Bedwetting is normal till age 5, if he's never been dry for 6 mos. Pull-ups are ok at night. ...Read more

My toddler, almost 2 yrs, loves drinking water most of the time. She asks for water most of the time and drinks too, more than food. Is this normal?

Usually habit: This is usually a combination of "I am the princess and mom will get me drink if I ask" and she drinks a lot and trained her kidneys to get rid of it quick. Giving her less per fill will gradually slow the process. If you cannot slow it down, the doc can check her. There are rare causes of a problem at this age. ...Read more

2 yr toddler. Drinks alot and pees alot also. Wake in the night screaming for water or juice. Normally don't give it. Is this habit or something else?

Deserves a visit: Many of these are just a drinking habit, but there is a rare condition where someone cannot re-claim the water that is purified in the kidney and these can become dehydrated overnight. Habit drinkers love the attention/process of drinking and asking for refills and their kidneys dilute their urine so much they need to keep drinking. Your doc can do some tests to exclude a real problem. ...Read more

Toddler was in a bath and got water in one of her ears. She immediately started crying but quickly stopped. It was a sharp pain. Why?

Crying toddler: It is hard for bath water that splashes the face to get into the ear canal that is as small in diameter as a toddler's. With a cry that stopped with quickly, my best guess is it scared her and as soon as she realized there was no pain she stopped crying. ...Read more

Toddler itches, breaks out during bath b4 any soaps/shampoo are applied. Has reacted this way in other tubs. Allergy towards something in water?

Mgt and workup: I would advise using a very basic soap such as white Dove soap. Avoid all perfumed products including shampoo. The reaction may also be to cleaning products and using natural cleaning products and rinsing the tub well prior to bath time may help.
I would suggest an antihistamine and evaluation. ...Read more

2 days in to my toddler taking amoxicillin 4 ear. He grabs his booty in pain. He won't put it in bath water. It's all red. Allergic reaction? Wat 2 do?

Possibly: In general allergic skin reactions to antibiotics are more generalized and tend to be itchy. They are often red blotches that can vary in size and briefly turn white if you press on them. A bottom or genital area that is all red and more painful is more likely a yeast infection that has developed as a side effect (not allergy) to the medication. An anti fungal cream will likely be needed. ...Read more
