What do I do when my child has a tantrum in the grocery store?

Calm and assertive: Get down on his level and let him know what you need and expect out of him BEFORE you enter the store. Then if behavior isn't as expected follow thru with a pre-determined action, i.e. taking him to the car for a couple minutes. Most important - be prepared to leave if behavior is bad - don't allow bad behavior or reward it just because you have errands or are embarrassed. ...Read more

Do you mean fetus?: Are you asking about meconium in your amniotic fluid? You can't tell until your water breaks. If the baby had stress significant enough to cause meconium, there may have been other signs, such as heart rate changes or decreased fetal growth or movement. ...Read more

My baby's almost a week old, when can I take him outside? And when can I leave the house to do things?

My baby's almost a week old, when can I take him outside? And when can I leave the house to do things?

No official time...: The american academy of pediatrics has no specific age cutoff before going in public. Airlines need a docs permission if newborn flying is less than 1 week. It's really up to you. The newborn's immune system isn't completely developed yet, so viruses and bacteria can be more harmful. Use common sense, and lots of hand washing. Make sure close contacts have their whooping cough booster (tdap). ...Read more

Before you go, tell: your child what behavior you want, the reward for complying & the consequence for not, at his language level. Make short trips to " catch him being good."

What can I do for my baby who hates the car seat?

What can I do for my baby who hates the car seat?

She must use it.: Make some colorful toys available, make sure the sun is not shining directly into her eyes, make sure it fits her appropriately and that she's not too cold or too hot. At that point, just let her cry and try to avoid long trips without frequent stops. She will get used to even unpleasant experiences if there is no choice. ...Read more

My son holds in his urine and poop when I try to make him sit at the potty, what can I do to fix this?

My son holds in his urine and poop when I try to make him sit at the potty, what can I do to fix this?

Try another tack: Rehersal is an important part of potty training & learning where equipment is & practicing diaper off sitting is important early in the process. After a toddler acquires these skills it is time to back off and become the potty assistant, not the potty commander. Tell baby you will help them when they need to go and mean it. Let them pick the time & respond immediately. They may need help only once. ...Read more

My mom has polycythemia vera.  What precautions, can I take to ensure that i won't get the same in a few years, when i reach the age she was when...?

Annual physical : P vera is not considered an inherited disease-meaning that there are no genes that cause the disease that are passed on from parent to child. It is probably related to aging, and it is not necessarily a terminal diagnosis, but some cases are more severe and require more treatment than others. Annual physicals that include complete blood counts will usually pick up an increase in red cells. ...Read more

Do i need to go see a doctor if i broke my toe and what would they do or is there something i can do at home? Well today i was playing soccer in the house and i went to kick the ball and missed the ball and kicked the door frame! right now, its the 2nd to

For : For the most part, lesser toe (that is, not the big, or great, toe) fractures heal on their own. A doctor would help with x-rays and supportive measures, such as a hard-soled shoe or buddy taping the toes together. However, a fracture with a puncture of the skin can get infected, and a poorly aligned toe can get in the way, particularly with certain types of shoes. Fractures of the great toe should always be evaluated by an orthopaedic or foot surgeon. If the fracture is at all suspicious, you should get it evaluated. ...Read more

My infant won't make a bowl movement unless I stick a thermometer in her rectum and move it around. Is this normal? How do I get her to go on her own?

My infant won't make a bowl movement unless I stick a thermometer in her rectum and move it around. Is this normal? How do I get her to go on her own?

Bowel Movements: She will go on her own when she is ready to go. The biggest mistake we as parents make is thinking our babies have to go everyday. If you keep stimulating her with the thermometer, she will get to the point she will only go when she has that stimulus. So stop doing that. Some babies go multiple times a day, some go everyday, some go once a week. Adults do that too. Be patient. ...Read more

How can I introduce cereal to my 4 month old? She wont take it in a bottle and fights a spoon. I don't know if its the taste or the texture.

Keep offering: Babies are used to getting milk form the bottle or breast so using spoons and foods with different taste and texture are not the usual for the baby. Keep trying with the spoon , eventually they will figure it out. Be patient the solids are not the primary nutrition when we first start solids. ...Read more

What do I do if the baby I sit for clings to me when mom comes home?

What do I do if the baby I sit for clings to me when mom comes home?

It's normal.: When this happens with my kids, the usually sitter gives a quick hug to our baby, and then hands him over without any fanfare or long goodbyes or drama. Very businesslike. If you and his mom put on a dramatic show, the kid thinks it's a dramatic event. And even if he does cry, it's normal - he's obviously formed an attachment to you, which means you're doing a great job! ...Read more

When i go to bed, a particular song keeps coming in my mind, and as a result, i cant fall asleep in time. What should i do to 'shut down' my brain ?

Insomnia: can be difficult to treat. You are likely not ready to go to sleep ( my guess is you force yourself to bed early so you can wake up early for work or school ) One way to combat this is to " pull an all nighter" on the weekend. The next day you'll run out of steam and get sleepy early. If the music persists try a white noise generator at night. ...Read more

Can bronchitis be caught from a grocery store or mall?

Can bronchitis be caught from a grocery store or mall?

Yes: I agree with dr. Carroll. Infectious forms of bronchitis are transmitted via airborne particles. This would be especially prevalent in situations where the air is recirculated. Airplanes, closed buildings, etc. Would be examples of this situation. I always get concerned when one passenger in an airplane is coughing because 70-80% of the air in a plane is recirculated. ...Read more

What should I buy at the grocery store to stay healthy? Which foods are superfoods?

No such thing: Claims that some particular item is a "superfood" is entertainment. They're lying to you. You don't see the NIH cafeteria offering "superfoods" and trust me, the research piranhas know the score. Avoid the very greasy, very sugary, and very salty stuff. Choose a good variety, don't overeat, and recognize that physical fitness is far more important in the long run than food choices. ...Read more

Is it bad not to wash organic carrots from the grocery store if they have dirt/soil on what are health risks?

Is it bad not to wash organic carrots from the grocery store if they have dirt/soil on what are health risks?

Yes!!! All produce: should be thoroughly rinsed & cleaned with a vegetable scrubber. I prefer this to peeling since many nutrients are on the skin. Also remove the outer leaves of cabbage and other leaf veggies & cut the bottoms off. I usually wait until I'm about ready to prepare produce to rinse it; otherwise the moisture makes it soggy. Contaminated produce can cause food-borne illness & exposure to pesticides. ...Read more
