It happens/rare: Shingles that young would imply that mother had chickenpox during pregnancy or that the kid had it in the first months of life. There are many blister producing illnesses that might seem to be shingles.If what you see is on both sides of the body, its not shingles. This process emerges in an localized area on one side only. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Baby crying: I don't think you have anything to worry about. Some babies cry more than others and this is normal. Sometimes it's the parent who is actually more rattled than the child. Remain calm. Remember babies can cry for multiple reasons. More patience and experience will guide you. To be safe bring this up with your pediatrician at the next visit. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Implicit memory : develops at 5 months - procedural memory of what happened yesterday or before. This leads to stranger anxiety & learned behaviors - habits- by 6 months. Giving positive or negative attention to a behavior reinforces it. Ignoring it makes it escalate briefly, then extinguish.

A little high: but you have to interpret this value with others. It may be your 1 year old (also a slight difference for boys and girls) has an anemia. You should discuss with your pediatrician as s/he will have the other important lab results as well. S/he may want to check folate (folic acid) levels or other tests if not already done. Most likely at this age it's related to your child's diet. Please discuss with her/him. ...Read more
My 13 year old keeps telling me he's hungry every 2hours or so,yet he is so skinny,is this normal for a young teen?I feed him healthy snacks too.
Doctor visit : I would bring your son to see the pediatrician for a checkup. One thing that comes to mind are the three cardinal symptoms of diabetes: polyuria, polydypsia, and polyphagia. Is he also peeing and drinking a lot? Of course, it may just be hunger but if he is not gaining weight and maybe even losing weight it deserves investigation at the doctors office. Good luck. ...Read more
Bile: The greenish color in stool is the breakdown product of the bile when it has not been in the gut long enough to go through a change to yellowish or brown. It is considered normal Some digested material will take on a darker tint than others & the germs in the gut will also impact the final product.It could be food coloring also, but my bet is normal bile stain. I'd ignore the whole issue. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
See below: If the child is in no distress and just coughing occasionally, i would wait on an mdi (metered dose inhaler) as the mechanics of proper use is impossible if the child is asleep. If you mean a nebulizer treatment, that can be done as long as you get the med in the child's face so they can breath it. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
My 8 year old daughter is overweight but my 9 year old daughter isn't. Why does my youngest gain so much weight and yet eats the same food as her sis ?
Good question: If both of your daughters eat the same diet and one is very overweight, that child may have a medical problem leading to weight gain. I am assuming that in addition to similar diets they have similar levels of activity and sleep. Have your younger child checked by her doctor for medical conditions that can contribute to weight gain. If none, consider emotional concerns, stress etc. ...Read more
Normal behavior: Sexual behaviors in infants are rare, with the exception of hand to genital contact. Beyond infancy, sexual behaviors increase as toddlers become more aware of their body parts, including their genitals, physiologic sensations deriving from their genitals, and gender differences. In general, sexual behaviors in children 2-5yrs of age are of a greater variety and more common compared to kids >5yrs ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can a 2 yr old poop too much? My son has pooped 6 times a day the past 3days. His poor butt is raw and red.
Toddler diarrhea: Toddlers seem to be especially sensitive to fruits and fruit juice. If that is his case, you need to reduce them to tolerance. Bananas and applesauce are the exceptions and usually thicken stools. Another possibility is that he is starting with an intestinal virus. Reducing fruits and juice would help with that also. ...Read more
Usually not: Have him checked by his pediatrician even if the chance of finding physical problem is pretty low. ...Read more
My son is 7wk old at 5wk old i had to put him on hungrier formula but hes demanding less than 3hr feeds at every 2hrs and has 6-7oz why is this?
Unique babies: Each child is different and as a general rule it is best to feed young infants on demand. As long as baby is showing cues of hunger and does not seem to have excessive spitting up, it is ok to feed her/him. Depending on if baby is primarily breastfed, he/she may not be getting as much as you think. Your physician will check baby's weight and make any necessary changes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
