What Is The Best Thing To Give A 2 Year Old For Constiapation
Fluids and Fiber: Constipation almost always involves one or more of three things in a toddler: either there is not enough water, not enough fiber, or too much of something constipating. If your child is in pain now, a glycerine suppository can give quick relief, but don't make a habit of using them. Better to find the dietary changes necessary to relieve the cause of the problem. Speak to your doctor about it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

All stuffed up!: First, I am a huge believer in usuing nasal saline drops (salt water). Try putting a drop in your child's nose every 3 hours. You can also put a litlle neosporing at the opening of each nare. Have your child drink as much fluids as possible and dilute the milk with water as necessary. If your child's symptoms worsen or fever develops, you should visit with your pediatrician. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Inexpensive: Many kids are at risk for deficiency in iron and vitamin d with today's circumstances.

Lotions: The best thing to start with is a thick lotion like aquaphor or eucerin. Even plain vaseline can be helpful. If those are not working, your child should be seen by their doctor as he might need a prescription strength ointment. ...Read more
Ear OK: The goal of taking the temperature of a child is to determine if they have a fever, which is a temperature over 100.4 f or 38 c. In a baby 6 months or less, it is important to get as accurate of a temp as possible, therefore use a rectal thermometer. In a 2 year old, an estimated temp is fine, so a thermometer which uses the ear or temporal artery is fine and much less invasive. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

M.D. visit: A persistent or worsening cough should be further evaluated. If the cough was associated with congestion, keeping the nasal passages clear with nasal saline, reduces post nasal drip. Conditions such as asthma, gerd and aspiration, a foreign body or CF may also be underlying causes of persistent cough. Your physician may elect to treat or screen for one of the above. ...Read more
