My 2 year old has 104 temp under arm and very lethargic, no other symptoms however, and doctor checked ears nose and lungs. What could cause this?
104 temp: If your 2 year old has received all of their meningitis immunizations that should make bacterial blood infection less likely, but baby girls with very high fever sometimes have urinary infections so a urine test would be helpful. If your child does not look better after giving fever reducer then a blood test might also be necessary. When did your dr. Check your child? ...Read more

Would you recommend giving a two-year -old melatonin to sleep I've seen Dr Oz and he said it's unsafe to give a child melatonin what do you guys think?
Needs a full eval: By 2yo a kid should have dozens of simple words that are understood by strangers at least half the time. A basic evaluation of the child's speech & hearing along with a general developmental evaluation should be done to identify treatable issues. This is often available through child development centers affiliated with children's hospitals or university centers. ...Read more
Many, many things: It could be something he ate. It could be a virus he caught from someone. It could be some other kind of infection that happens to be causing fever and vomiting. The bottom line in a child with fever and vomiting is that he need to stay hydrated. Give very small sips of liquid (1-2 teaspoons) frequently (every 5-10 minutes). This way, even if he vomits, some of that liquid will be absorbed. ...Read more

My two year old recently Had the stomach flu. How many days (after symptoms have stopped) can I send him to child care?
When he wakes up: In the morning feeling pretty well, tolerating bananas, rice, applesauce, etc., & having no liquid stool running out of his diaper, take him back to daycare. I'm sure the daycare workers follow universal precautions to attempt to prevent transmission of infectious diseases, but 2-year-olds just don't follow the same precautions. Be nice & take him back when his poop will stay in his diaper. ...Read more

Chipped baby tooth question? My two year old chipped a front top tooth, just very slightly. Is this something I need to be worried about? .
I: I would say I get at least one child a day with the same concern that you have at this time. If the chip is just in the enamel of the tooth the child will not have cold sensitivity because there are no nerve fibers in that layer of tooth. However if the tooth was bumped it may turn dark in two to three weeks and may have slight mobility. If the tooth had bleeding around the gums and mobility I would definitely take your child to the dentist for an exam. If your child has never been to a dentist this would be great time to start. ...Read more

Can sucking fingers harm a baby's teeth? Our two year old daughter sucks her middle two fingers all the time, and we're concerned that it might cause her teeth to come in crooked or incorrectly. Is this something we only need to worry about if she's still
@ 2, let them be: Kids need to pacify themselves. Sometimes an object, sometimes a finger or two or a thumb. If it is occurring at this age, leave them be. They psychologically need it. It will very likely subside as peer pressure enters into the equation. If after 5 it does not abate, small measures can be taken, but too early an intervention may have implications far beyond dental. ...Read more
