Sophie has a water bubble in her ear, and she can't seem to get it out. She claims it may be from swimming. Home remedies aren't helping.

Can those soothie pacifiers really make a difference for a baby?

Can those soothie pacifiers really make a difference for a baby?

Pacifiers: Yes little babies love to suck, it is a part of their developmental stage and they need to have enough of it before 18 months of age to avoid oral fixation. That is one of the reasons we always recommend breast feeding because it gives them more sucking than bottles. ...Read more

My husband watches porn and masturbates. I asked him to stop. He told me no. Is it bad that he won't stop?

My husband watches porn and masturbates. I asked him to stop. He told me no. Is it bad that he won't stop?

If he watches only: Adult porn, watches it & masturbates only in private, keeps ALL porn locked away from your kids, & curtails pleasuring himself for work, parenting & spousal duties, it may not be an addiction, but marital counseling is vital if he won't engage in mutual problem-solving with you. If he won't go with you, seek individual therapy to help you think about what's best for you & safest for your kids. ...Read more

Hi, I'm traveling with my one month old daughter to Boston next week, she hasn't gotten her shots yet. Any recommendations on how to keep her safe?

If flying, make sure: Her nose is not blocked. If stuffy/mucousy, put 3-4 saline nasal drops & suck with bulb syringe. Use pacifier during trip. Avoid crowded places; keep away from persons with cold/cough/fever. Practice frequent hand washing. Make sure temperature is maintained, cover properly from wind or sun. Remember: 1st sign of infection is poor feeding, lethargy, poor muscle tone, fever or low temp. Nice trip! ...Read more

Is it normal for your period to be irregular after stoppiing the NuvaRing?

Off Nuva ring: The Nuva ring is keeping the cycle artificially regular. Going off it, just allows what is underneath to come out again. If you're having irregular periods, there are many possible causes so if it keeps up, it's a good idea to have some testing to figure out the cause and best treatment. ...Read more

I have scoliosis, wore boston jacket ages 8-14 23hr/d now at age 23 I'm in severe pain a lot and painful to do everyday task could it be getting worse?

Scoliosis changes: The curve associated with scoliosis can change even after puberty but the changes occur more slowly. Ask your primary care doctor to refer you to a spine surgeon specializing in scoliosis surgery. They will likely start with conservative physical therapy to strengthen you core muscles. But it is good to get established in case the curvature of your spine changes and surgery is needed. ...Read more

STDs must Test: I think that this forum is great. But, it does not replace the simple activity of getting to your family doctor and getting evaluated or tested for the concerns one has.

Medtronic or Boston Scientific for spinal cord stimulator? Just curious, not considering yet.

Chronic pain: Both stimulators work by the gate control theory of pain. Stimulating the sensory fibers blocks the pain fibers. A trial of spinal cord stimulation is performed first. If the pain is significantly reduced then a permanent stimulator is placed. Some stimulators are now MRI compatible. Discuss with your physician which system is best for you. ...Read more

Baby almost 2, uses soothie pacifier. Worried about teeth. Won't take another type. Will permanent teeth be affected?

Baby almost 2, uses soothie pacifier. Worried about teeth. Won't take another type. Will permanent teeth be affected?

Pacifier use: It was not mentioned how old the baby is, 2 years or 2 months. If the baby is 2 months old pacifier use should be discontinued by 6 months of age. I have not seen any problems with teeth with pacifier use at this age since the teeth usually come through around 9 months of age. If the child is 2 years old it's use should be immediately discontinued. ...Read more
