Why Is My One Year Old Constapated Everyday That She Has A Hard Time
Many factors: Toddlers often become constipated due to diets with excess dairy and not enough water and fiber (fruits, vegetables, whole grains). A few cases of constipation are due to underlying illness, but most often it's diet related. Once the gut stretches with constipation it is a problem that tends to perpetuate. If diet changes alone don't help, your doctor might recommend medications. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My two yr old son is normally a great eater now lately for the past couple days he is not when do I worry?
Come and go: The appetite of the two year old will come and go. He may eat "well" for a few days, then you may have days that you actually wonder if anything got into his mouth! Also keep in mind that from 2 to 3 kids gain far less weight than in the first several years of life. You can check his growth by plotting it here: http://www.cdc.gov/growthcharts/data/set1clinical/cj41c021.pdf ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

That depends....: Sometimes mommies say their baby is constipated when the baby is grunting, turning red and crying, then having a soft bowel movement. That's not constipation, it's learning to use the belly muscles to push out the poop. If the baby is not uncomfortable and the poop is coming out soft, don't do anything. If the baby is uncomfortable and the poop is coming out like little marbles, see your doctor. ...Read more

My grandaughter menstruates every two weeks since she was 10 years old now almost 11 what treatment is available she is in a lot of pain
See your doc: A lot of time girls at her age may have what's called anovulatory cycles, where one hormone is released in anticipation of an egg. Normally the egg is released, and the ovary produces another hormone that helps get the uterus prepared properly. When that doesn't happen, as is normal in early menarche, there can be erosion in the uterus and bleeding. There are other reasons too, and treatments. ...Read more

My 3 and a half year old daughter. Has had black poo twice today she has a wee cold and cough at minute and is on calpol. Is it anything to worry?
Probably not: Truly black poo can be a bit worrisome and should be tested for blood. But if it is dark dark brown or dark dark green it can look black. Iron supplements and grape juice can also make the poo look black. Is she on calpol for fever? If poo continues to be black and cold is worse, have her seen. ...Read more

My baby is 3 and half years old.For last 1 month she is saying she has a stomach ache after every meal.What should I do?
Call your doctor: A 3-year-old may not be able to adequately describe his/her symptoms to you. I would highly recommend you contact the child's pediatrician. Next time, don't wait a month before reporting symptoms that are unusual or irregular. Use the "3-day rule": anything that lasts more than 3 days or happens on 3 separate days needs professional attention. It's may be bigger than you think. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My niece is seven months into a healthy pregnancy but she has what seems to be a regular period every month since she has been pregnant what could it?
Bleeding: Its unusual. Sometimes the placenta is over the cervix, that's placenta previa. Early obn it can be implantation bleeding but would not suspect that here. Follow closely with ultrasound, it's unusual but wit good rest, and possibly oral or vaginal progesterone, the bleeding, though maybe not the outcome, could get improvement. Good luck. ...Read more
