How do I keep my toddler from putting things in his nose and mouth?

How do I keep my toddler from putting things in his nose and mouth?

Keep out of reach: Toddlers instinctively put everything in their mouths because it might be food. Do a sweep of your house and get everything that isn't nailed down out of his reach. And brace yourself for the next stage, when he starts climbing to reach stuff he can't get to now. That's the reality of rearing children - it gets more and more aggravating 'til they graduate from college. But grandchildren are great! ...Read more

Both: Toddlers seem to learn over time the speed and amount of food they can swallow at one time, some easier than others. This is more frequent if they are multitasking while feeding.

Can a toddler swallowing a foreign object cause vomiting six hours later? No proof he ate anything I just worry he put something in his mouth.

Can a toddler swallowing a foreign object cause vomiting six hours later? No proof he ate anything I just worry he put something in his mouth.

Access to batteries?: What was it that happened 6 hours beforehand? If he is able to swallow liquids normally, I would not be too concerned about a foreign object unless he had access to a small battery that he may have swallowed. In that case he should be x rayed. Also if you suspect coin ingestion, xray to be sure it cleared esophagus. If he has persistent vomiting, of course you need to speak with his physician. ...Read more

Red pin prickrash on both cheeks on face with small light blue bruise close to her mouth had itp below 3 as a toddler 4 years old now and on pinamox?

Umm, hard to say.: Heat rash. Viral rash. Allergy rash. Infectious rash. Eczema. Contact dermatitis. The best strategy is to determine the source of the rash then address that specifically. This should be an easy question to pose to your pediatrician during the 4-year old well visit. Without actually viewing the rash and "bruise" in person, any answer would be but a guess. Your daughter deserves better than a guess. ...Read more

My 3 yr old bumped her mouth on the toddler rail of her bed pretty hard. Her front tooth is lightly loose, a little bleeding & her lip is swollen?

Call your dentist.: You should visit your dentist's office and let them take a look. The tooth may need care immediately, in the future or not at all. It may turn color, and the developing permanent teeth are also at risk from this type of injury. Right now is the time for initial assessment, & an x-ray. Often nothing needs to be done immediately (especially if your child is improving and out of pain). ...Read more

Best kind of floss to use on a two year old? Is there any kind of floss out there that makes it easier to floss a toddler's teeth? Between my hands, his small mouth and his obvious distaste for the whole process, I'm worried that he's not getting anywhere

FlossSpan: Try one of the flossing devices that can be used with one hand. They look something like a slingshot with a forked end that has floss between the two forks. The other hand can be used to hold the tongue or cheeks and lips away. Also, some types of floss are 'flavored' to improved patient acceptance. ...Read more

What could cause my toddler to have a sore mouth. Strep throat swap was clear?

Most are viruses: Toddlers are constantly chewing/sucking their fingers or touching the world around them. That gives them ample opportunity to sample every virus or bacteria that exists in their environment. Their mouth/throat is the entrance to their immune system and tonsils that react when stimulated. Strep is sensitive to antibiotics but the viruses must run their course. ...Read more

Do I need to be concerned if my toddler has hand, foot & mouth disease & I am 21 weeks pregnant?

Not specifically: Most women will have had the viral infection that produces HFM in childhood and be immune for their lifetime. I do see the germ pass to adults occasionally. At 21 weeks you baby has formed all its basic structure, so the most vulnerable period has passed. I know of no reported HFM effects to the fetus if a mother becomes infected. You should know in a week or so if you get it. If so let your OB know. ...Read more
