How can you tell the difference between thrush and just milk stain on the tongue of a 1 month old?
Thrush vs. Milk: Sometimes it can be challenging to tell the difference between early thrush and retained milk on the tongue. Generally, milk will wipe away when gently scraped, but thrush will not.

Although it is encouraging that they are negative, there are other things you could be allergic to, such as aeroallergens: pollens, grasses, trees, weeds and even animals. Any kind of a reaction to allergen could cause tongue swelling. There are other causes of tongue swelling, but allergies & trauma are most common. Not common to kill, though. ...Read more

What'sImportantIsYou: Don't get all compulsive about not eating breakfast. If you feel OK and aren't hungry just wait 'till you get hungry. In fact, there's current thinking about that whole breakfast myth. Good for the food industry but maybe not you. I'm not hungry in the morning. Except for a few stomach growls I'm fine till 2, sometimes 3:30 pm. But each person is different. Don't fall into the group-think hype. ...Read more

Baby bottle caries: If the baby continues to sleep with the milk bottle in her mouth like that, I will guarantee she will end upwith "baby bottle" caries, where the milk actually pools in her mouth and creates caries which will destroy her teeth. I suggest that you pick a couple of days, perhaps the weekend and try to break this habit by just not giving the bottle this way, perhaps substitute with a bottle of water. ...Read more

Sometimes I smell my son`s mouth having a bad odor. He`s 3yr old but I did brushed his teeth evry other night and he`s drnking milk tru bottle. Thanks?
Bacteria: Your child's bacterial makeup may be more heavily weighted toward the smelly bacteria. If no cavities are present then it will be good to limit sugary intake but also to be brushing their tongue and mouth more often. Often these odor causing ones aren't necessarily cavity causing varieties. I suggest as the previous doctor did a visit to the dentist. Best to you! ...Read more

I am allergic to almonds (itchy mouth and it becomes difficult to breath), but I am fine with almond milk (i have a dairy allergy), why is this?
Good question: First thing that comes to mind is that you might not be allergic to the actual nut protein but to a common fumigant used to treat almonds during production. (in fact, seeing your other allergies reinforces this possibility.) an interesting read: http://foodidentitytheft. Com/trying-to-avoid-almonds-that-are-gassed-heres-a-little-guide/ *don't use this guess of mine as a reason to try almonds again*. ...Read more
