Can't remember: We sign ourselves up for sure, but how I heard about it, I can't remember. I have spells where I do Healthtap a lot and spells when I don't. You could always ask them yourself. We are all motivated in different ways, so my reasons for doing it and being active will be different than others. Hope that helps. ...Read more

My daughter is 17 months old. She did not gain any weight or height in the last 4 months. She is eating fine and is very active, so there are no other signs. What could be the problem?

My daughter is 17 months old. She did not gain any weight  or height in the last 4 months. She is eating fine and is very active, so there are no other signs. What could be the problem?

Nothing: At that age, children don't gain weight and height as much as during the first 6 months of age, so you don't really have to measure her that often. So you can wait until your 18 month visit with the pediatrician and he/she will show you the growth curve that will demonstrate that she is doing fine. ...Read more

My 10 month old dtr appears to be unable to actively extend her 2nd digit at the DIP jt. I am able to passively extend it fully. There is no signs of trauma or injury. What could this be?

My 10 month old dtr appears to be unable to actively extend her 2nd digit at the DIP jt. I am able to passively extend it fully. There is no signs of trauma or injury. What could this be?

See pediatrician: Was there past trauma, bruising, swelling of the digit? An avulsion fracture with separation of the extensor digitorum from its insertion on the distal phalanx can happen from a blow to the tip of the finger such as from catching a ball. Please take your baby to the pediatrician for an evaluation and referral ASAP. I am assuming this is a new problem. ...Read more
