Do you need to physically demonstrate peeing in the toilet to potty train your son?

Do you need to physically demonstrate peeing in the toilet to potty train your son?

No: Generally they can model what they see and by that age, what they are taught. Remember that true training probably does not occur until the child can not stand being wet and wants to avoid it no matter what they are doing. A child who does not care if they are wet or dirty has no real motivation to stop other more fun things to stay dry. ...Read more

Does the "let them cry" method work? On a 4mo old? We r going from swing to crib. Need good tips. Slow transition? Soothe? Let cry?

Does the "let them cry" method work? On a 4mo old? We r going from swing to crib. Need good tips. Slow transition? Soothe? Let cry?

They train you: If they're crying, it means that they want something from you. If you give it to them, then they learn that crying = getting something. If you don't give it to them, then they learn the opposite. This is not to say that you withhold diaper changes and feeding. However, learning to self-sooth is an important step in a kiddo's development. ...Read more

What do you suggest if i'm going to do 50 sit ups every morning, and 50 sit ups every night. Will that burn belly fat?

What do you suggest if i'm going to do 50 sit ups every morning, and 50 sit ups every night. Will that burn belly fat?

Diet helps too: Certainly, that kind of concerted effort (100 sit ups daily) will help strengthen your core muscles and burn calories. But it is important to remember that caloric intake is certainly part of the equation. Exercise alone may not be the answer. The combination of nutritional considerations and exercise will likely be more effective. ...Read more

See your...: ...Pediatrician. A urinalysis (a urine test that looks for things like blood and infection) should be performed. If there is an infection, it needs to be treated. If there is something getting in the way of urine flow, it should be looked into. Your doctor may decide that a referral to a specialist is necessary. ...Read more

What's the best way to get a 17 month old to sit still while having his teeth brushed? Our son simply won't sit still while we try to brush his teeth, crying, screaming, and squirming everywhere. He moves around so much that i feel like our attempts at br

Turn : Turn brushing into a game. There are some new brushes that are battery operated with flashing lights. In fact some brushes will play music if you brush long enough. Let your child brush first and then you follow up. Do it every day without fail. Your child has to get used to it. If they cry and fight you, eventually they won't. This will prepare them for a visit at the dentist. ...Read more

Bed rest for 3 months. Trying to sit up but hard to do for more than 5 minutes. I'm stressed cause I want my body to feel normal sitting up. Advice?

Bed rest for 3 months. Trying to sit up but hard to do for more than 5 minutes. I'm stressed cause I want my body to feel normal sitting up. Advice?

Slow work: You're like an astronaut who's been in space for 3 months. You're deconditioned and your autonomic (involuntary) reflexes are depressed and sluggish. You must go slowly. First try propping up in bed (a hospital bed would be ideal) at an increasing angle for 5 - 10 minutes at a time. Gradually increase the time every 2-3 days. Try to dangle your legs next. Then try a chair. This may take weeks. ...Read more

Why is pool exercises so good for dysautnomia patients? Trying to figure out what's better.. Pool. Or recumb bike

Why is pool exercises so good for dysautnomia patients? Trying to figure out what's better.. Pool. Or recumb bike

Probably Pool: In dysautonomia, their is an inability to regulate the autonomic nervous system. As a result, blood pressure, heart rate, temperature can fluctuate dramatically in dysautonimia patients. Pool based exercises are likely to be less rigorous, more controlled and water will help regulate temperature. There is less liklihood of autonomic dysfunction with pool based exercise. ...Read more

A 3 yr old kid who is unable to speak all words, listens but doesn't obey ur commands every time. He pulls u to the things he want, is mentally sick?

A 3 yr old kid who is unable to speak all words, listens but doesn't obey ur commands every time. He pulls u to the things he want, is mentally sick?

Can he hear?: This would be a great question for your pediatrician or family medicine doc. The first order of business will be to have a hearing test, because if he is deaf, he might not learn to speak well and need to communicate some other way. You may also be right to worry about how well the brain is working. Maybe he has a developmental delay. Lots of possible reasons for that, but start with hearing. ...Read more

I am a fitness trainer. Should my client take out his tracheostomy tube when we do more intense workouts so that he can breathe better?

I am a fitness trainer. Should my client take out his tracheostomy tube when we do more intense workouts so that he can breathe better?

No: Tracheostomies are placed in patients when they are not able to breathe on their own without it. If a patient has a tracheostomy tube then removing it may make breathing more difficult. This could be very dangerous. The patient needs to discuss when and if to remove this with their physician. ...Read more

He does fine at school but as soon as we get home he gets angry, spouting orders, pitching fits and hitting. How we change this? I'm exhausted!

Your Son?: The question is a bit vague. I am going to assume it is your son. Not sure what age. My best overall recommendation is a book called new kids by friday. If you and your co-parent (if any) follow the program together it will help a great deal. If you need help seeing a family therapist may be a good idea. ...Read more

How to encourage stressed, anxious mind to feel sleepy after going to bed (without distracting it with tv - this works but is a problem to a partner)?

Counting Sheep?: I generally start with general "sleep hygiene" measures and prefer natural supplements to prescription sleeping pills for many reasons. I reported on some of these in a recent blog (http://healthremedies.Com/blog/the-dangers-of-sleeping-pills-what-are-the-alternatives/). Ingredients i look for: l-theanine, 5-htp, melatonin, valerian, passiflora, gaba, mg, no sheep. Although counting them helps. ...Read more

Can baby skip crawling and go straight to walking? If he does go straight to walking does he need to go back and learn to crawl?

Can baby skip crawling and go straight to walking? If he does go straight to walking does he need to go back and learn to crawl?

Yes.: A baby can learn to walk before he crawls. He does not need to "go back". As long as children have lots of opportunity to be active and play outdoors on natural terrain and are not ushered into sitting still in chairs, they will develop all the walking, jumping, running, climbing, crawling, stooping, crouching, squatting skills that humans do need. They need help with swimming and bicycles. ...Read more

It : It is very normal for your child to want to crawl everywhere once he learns how to move. He is interested in exploring his world and why sit still when you can move! this can lead to dressing and diaper changes that can be tricky. (one parent once likened diapering a 1 year old to diapering a raccoon.) make sure his environment is as safe as can be and let him crawl. This is all part of normal development. ...Read more

How to deal with baby 10m who insist to climb the coach when i say no firmly he still repeat the same action how to change his behavoir?how raise obey

When you say : in a low, firm, calm voice, remove him from the couch from behind. Take him to a play area & engage him in a different activity. Spend an afternoon redirecting him till he " gets it." Negative or positive attention reinforces a behavior. Raising your voice, scolding or appearing upset will reinforce his couch-climbing. Ignoring a behavior by using time-out works from 18 mos. to 10 years. ...Read more
