Sugar free candy: There are diabetic candies which are sugar free (not for small children = choking hazard). Sugar free gum and lollypops would be good treats too. Fresh sliced strawberries with a little splenda for valentines. Fresh raspberries are fun for kids too. An apple on a stick with a little bit of caramel for halloween = delicious!

Why is it a good idea to make sure my child knows the difference between day and night?

Why is it a good idea to make sure my child knows the difference between day and night?

Getting some Zzzzzz: Trying to get a beby to sleep at night can be challenging. It is imprtant for a baby to start learning the day/night signals early on. In a nutshell, during the day your home should be a bright, stimulating place where the baby is driven to learn and everybody interacts with him or her. Night time is quiet, not bright and not interactive, in other words, to boring to stay awake.

Seek help from a pro: Need to see a physician for an endocrine and metabolic work-up! sometimes pregnancy results in hyperactivity of the thyroid gland. Although rare (about 1/2000 of pregnancies), this accounts for 95% of new cases of newly diagnosed hyperthyroidism. If so you would have a hdd time with weight gain. A blood test for your thyroid hormones, the pituitary gland(tsh). Are necessary to confirm.

Why is it a good idea to swaddle my child?

Why is it a good idea to swaddle my child?

Comfort: Swaddling makes your baby feel nice and cozy and comfortable. It also keeps them from waking themselves up with their failing arm and leg movements (which they can't quite control yet). Swaddling imitates the warm, soft and tight environment they had in the womb, making them feel safe and secure. Swaddle for naps, bedtime and fussiness.

Is teaching a child to fear something (like strangers) a good idea?

Is teaching a child to fear something (like strangers) a good idea?

Not exactly: It is important to teach children boundaries and safety. Hopefully we do not have to teach them to be afraid. I prefer to use the term empower them with skill sets. Giving them facts that teach why they should not do something is important. Ex: many strangers are simply friends we haven't met yet and some strangers do not have our best interest at heart - check with parents before talking to them.

What are some gift ideas for a disabled child?

What are some gift ideas for a disabled child?

Many options: First , would help to know age and nature of disability. DO they like music? How mobile are they? What are their interests if they are old enough - d they like dinosaurs, Turtles, Elmo...? Time spent with them is always an excellent gift. Take them to park, museum, out for lunch if old enough. Work with their strengths - you don't but a bike for a kid with spina bifida, but art supplies are great!

Any ideas of what's going to be used on my child's cut? When can they use glu?

Depends: The need to close a laceration depends on the size, depth, and location of the cut. The purpose of sutures (stitches), staples, or glue is to pull the edges of the cut together to allow it to heal with less risk of scarring and infection. A type of medical 'super glue' can be used on cuts in areas such as the scalp and in areas that don't get a lot of pulling.

If you smoke around your child, will it give them the idea that it's ok to smoke?

If you smoke around your child, will it give them the idea that it's ok to smoke?

Yes: Your children aren't stupid. They watch and learn from the world around them, especially from the parents who they love and trust. They'll be most impressionable when they're young. Once they start smoking, it's unlikely that they'll quit-- even when they're older and mature enough to realize that adults aren't always right. By then: too late, they're addicted.

Tylenol, (acetaminophen) moist heat : Enbrel (etanercept) is a good choice to help get the disease under control. If she is not on Ibuprofen or another NSAID medication this us also an option. Moist heat and the bengay type rubs can also help with the pain and can be used with most medications. Talk with her rheumatologist and let them know that she is having this problem.
