15% of 5-yr.-olds: have primary nocturnal enuresis, never having had at least 6 mos. of dry nights. PNE stops on its own at a rate of 15% of affected kids/year after age 5. There is often a family history of PNE. See her doctor for a 1st-voided AM urine for urinalysis.

I have a 4 month old baby girl and today I found some greenish discharge in her diaper should I be concern?

Could be stool...: You probably do not have to worry about any infection. Your infant daughter is most likely sociable, happy and feeding well without fever, vomiting or fussiness. No rash over the genital area too...I would rinse the area and replace with a clean diaper and monitor this phenomena over time. Mucusy discharge is possible from the vagina-not green. ...Read more

I was just changing the diaper on my 4 old baby girl and I heard her little leg sounded like it popped also earlier noticed her ankle. Is this normal?

Confusing: The description in your question is a bit confusing, but enough to suggest you need to discuss this with the kids doc. The pop could be a simple rolling of ligaments over one another, or her hip slipping out of joint.The first would not be a problem, the second could be a significant one. Schedule a checkup in the next few days. ...Read more

Irritation rashes are usually due to urine or stool contents irritating the skin. It's hard to tell without looking at the rash which it is, and the treatment varies greatly depending on what the cause is. If this keeps coming and going, its time for your pediatrician to peek! ...Read more

Vaginitis or UTI: Your baby might have had a mild vaginal discharge. However she may have had a UTI from streptococci or staphylococci. These don't necessarily test positive on a urine test-strip which tests for nitrite, which is produced by the common gram negative bacilli which originate in the intestinal tract. This can be confirmed by urine culture of catheterized or supra-pubic tap specimen. ...Read more

My 22 week old girl has a tiny lump above her pelvic area. I felt it while changing her diaper; it's on her upper left pelvis area. What could it be?

Location: If this corresponds to the fold of the groin it is likely a lymph note. These are small structures that sift through body serum & clean out debris before the serum is returned to the circulation. There are many located throughout the body & those in the fold of the groin will often be noticed as pea to peanut sized, rubbery bumps that seem attached.They are a normal finding. ...Read more
