When do kids typically begin to stop using a pacifier?

When do kids typically begin to stop using a pacifier?

By 2 1/2: Children don't usually make that decision on their own. They will use it much longer than recommended if allowed. Parents need to commit to discontinued use of the pacifier by age 2 1/2 at the latest. Prolonged use can lead to occlusal (bite) changes and impaired speech development. It's not always easy to take it away but within 48-72 hours the kids have moved on. ...Read more

6 yr old boy Nocturnal asthma how to relieve it if inhaler isn't helping at night time? And spits out prednisone medication when given orally.

6 yr old boy Nocturnal asthma how to relieve it if inhaler isn't helping at night time? And spits out prednisone medication when given orally.

You should speak: to his doctor. I don't know what inhaler he is on. If it is a bronchodilator (such as albuterol or xopenex), he may benefit from an inhaled steroid (or through a nebulizer), but only his doctor can make that determination. If he is having labored breathing, you should take him to an emergency room to be seen. ...Read more

Will a child continue to use a pacifier until I take it away from him?

Will a child continue to use a pacifier until I take it away from him?

Not necessarily: Infants may use & abandon a pacifier depending on their degree of attachment & availability of interesting alternatives. I have had kids that never took to one and some that carried one about until preschool.Sudden removal confuses a todler who wonders why they are being punished, or why mommy took my best buddy away. The wounded trust may last a lifetime. Reduce paci time gradually & they toss it. ...Read more

Does 5-9 hours gymnastics stunted children growth? My children loves gymnastics but I am afraid to send them to more intensive training. They currently do 1-2 hours/week only.

Does 5-9 hours gymnastics stunted children growth? My children loves gymnastics but I am afraid to send them to more intensive training. They currently do 1-2 hours/week only.

Gymnastics: it is not necessarily the number of hours per week spent doing gymnastics. Issues with growth revolves around less than adequate nutrition intake during the optimal periods of childhood growth, while performing gymnastics. Adequate caloric intake, of healthy foods, is of utmost importance. A discussion with your pediatrician, or HealthTap prime consult, can help lay out more instructions for you. ...Read more

My baby is 3 months and will only sleep in stroller. When can I stop worrying about sids if she doesn't crib sleep?

My baby is 3 months and will only sleep in stroller. When can I stop worrying about sids if she doesn't crib sleep?

6 months: Sids is related to more than sleeping in a crib. For everyone's well-being, get baby out of a stroller for sleeping and into an empty crib with a firm mattress. No pillow, animals, blanket or bumper pads. Have her tummy-sleep. Don't smoke. Once she is rolling over consistently both ways, you can feel comfortable that sids is highly unlikely, usually by 6 months. The crib is the safest place! ...Read more

What causes kids to eat their snot and how can you stop this??? And unfortunately I've seen kids in their LATE TEENS supporting this habit!! Yuk!

Nose: Have you ever pondered why the fingers fit so perfectly up the nose? As soon as we get hand eye coordination, everything goes to the face. Perhaps that form of behavior was a protective mechanism that helped keep nostrils clean. Kids do gross things. They're curios and the younger ones still have oral tendencies. It will stop before they start middle school! ...Read more
