With the frequency of the seizures that you describe your daughter will most likely need to be started on a mediation. An eeg is a very sensitive test but does not always show epileptiform activity in between seizures. I would probably start your daughter on an anti-seizure medication to help prevent seizure activity. ...Read more

Is it ok if my one year old son don't eat very much during the day. All he wants to do is snack. Is this normal?

Yes: Most kids at that age will have one good meal, one sketchy, and one awful. Making foods available especially during the "good meal" will make sure that there is a good amount of vitamins and nutrients. Snacking is fine, with coalescence into meals as he gets a little older. However, he should sit with you during mealtime to get used to the social aspect of eating. ...Read more
