Will rubbing a pee-soaked diaper on an infant's face and/or tongue cure him of thrush and baby acne?
Not advisable: There is much folklore surrounding the use of urine as a cure-all, but little evidence of any benefit. Urine should be sterile and not cause disease, but there are much better treatments for both oral thrush and acne. Baby acne does not need treatment and will go away on its own. Benzoyl peroxide is far more effective for treatment of adult acne. ...Read more

Is tongue thrusting really something to worry about with baby teeth? Our baby does a fair amount of tongue thrusting, and have read that it can damage baby teeth. I just have a hard time believing that it can do all that much damage though.
Age dependent: Tongue thrusting which is really a retained infantile swallow pattern should not be of concern in the first 4 years of life. Thrusting of the tongue is how a baby nurses, but if continues late into baby tooth dentition or early adult teeth it can cause no end of problems. It will usually go away with development, if causing lack of occlusion (bite) of front teeth, see a certified orthodontist. ...Read more
