My son had reflux from a very early age. He screamed all the time and and spit up a rediculous amount. It was amazing he still gained weight. He did not quit screaming until we found a medicine and dosage to help. Nexium is what we finally setting on. We just were able to take him off the medicine when he was 15 months.
Yes there are many parents who are concerned . I know two cases of parents with 3 boys and the ones vaccinated developed Autism. A doctor in MA has even excused the other children from getting vaccinated to go to school. I also know of a case of one child who developed autism after vaccines and by 7 months the mother stopped vaccinated him when noticed delays in development. This boy after 2 years using organic foods, probiotics and no more vaccines, or test involving radioactive dyes, he has seem to be doing much better. The child seems is detox from the vaccines given up to 7 months old. It took long time and the child continues to have the diagnosis but is behaving as a normal child of his age. He has also has been taking therapy through Birth through three.
I advise parents to investigate and get informed on how vaccines have been made today. Information leaked through Internet claim they have been made in China and their components aren't as people think. They not only contain fetal tissue or blood but also viruses from animals, formaldehyde, mercury and many toxic ingredients. There are many organizations getting organized against vaccination not only to children but to those with an immune problem, specially the elderly. There are questions raised on the polio vaccine and how many developed Polio in this country after the getting vaccinated. As parents we must protect our children"026
Many of us were raised without vaccines and we did not see as much ADHD cases or learning disabilitiesin our time . We got chicken pox and all kind of diseases as many of our friends and we still here. Vaccines seems to weaken the immune system specially Influenza vaccines that today is done as a routine every year. A friend of mine who is a nurse, never in her life had the influenza vaccine and she never up to her 70s got the FLU. The best intervention is prevention through hygiene. I know families that due to their religion they have chosen not to vaccinate their children and they are super intelligent and well behave children. There is no doubt vaccines are dangerous to all people, but has become a business in this country. The lack of ethics need to stop and we the parents need to take action to protect our love ones.View Thread

Well, if she is getting good and having regular bowel movements, I'd be inclined to wait a bit longer.
Is there any pattern to them? Like before she goes off to school, or when she gets home?
If it would make you feel better, you could take her to the pedi and discuss what has been going on. Some children are just more sensitive and maybe the new baby is making her feel anxious.....like, will my parents still love me now that there is a new baby? Of course children can't verbalize that, but they come out in symptoms like a stomach ache or behaviors.
You know your daughter best, so don't discount your mommy instinct.
Kids learn how to feel about their bodies, abilities, everything -- from what you say and do. They are likely to imitate your actions. The most powerful way to teach your kids healthy habits is not by rewarding or punishing them. Instead, act in a positive way and model healthy behaviors. The US has seen a decline in all of the aforementioned care characteristics. Instead of being physically close to their parents, infants spend more time in carriers and strollers. Hardly 15 percent of mothers breast-feed their infants, extended families are broken apart and playing outside freely has decreased significantly since 1970. According to an interdisciplinary research presented at a symposium at the University of Notre Dame, social practice and cultural influences of modern lifestyle are inhibiting the development of healthy brain and emotions in children.

My >12-month-old was recently vaccinated for her 12-month shots and got her Varicella but the office was out of the MMR. They told us to return a few days later when it was in stock and it was administered. Now her state immunization registry says her MMR vaccine is not valid because if she could not get it on the same day as her Varicella (live virus) then she should not have received it sooner than 4 weeks after. So that MMR does not count and she still needs 2 more MMR immunizations. Is this the case, all or nothing on 1 day? I don't see that there is any harm in giving her a total of 3 MMR vaccines but she's my one and only so sometimes I get a little crazy over-protective.View Thread
I have an adopted 9 year old doing the same things. Peeing in his room on the floor and in containers and on his stuff. He has rads. Reactive attachment disorder. It's not the answer for all of you but I'm positive it's the answer for some. There's next to no help for it out there but if u look hard you can find resources. John Hughes writes a great book about it. We struggle every day.View Thread
Where we live the health authority has requested all children to be vaccinated with MMR whether already vaccinated or not. My son is 8 and is up to date with his MMR inoculations, so I don't want him to be vaccinated again as I don't see the need for it and I am told MMR is a live vaccine. What are the actual pros and cons to a third (unnecessary) dose? Should I fight it or is there no harm? Thank you for your helpView Thread
Have you looked into Lpin1? It causes recurrent Rhabdo in children and is a genetic condition. My son was the first diagnosed in the United States and 33rd in the world. Since then they have found a few more in the States. They think it is more common than we think though.View Thread
I know it's been a few yrs since you posted about your daughter, but we had a similar situation happen to us 3 yrs ago as well where nurse mistakenly gave our 15 month old MMR less than 3 months after receiving his first MMR shot. He has had trouble sleeping since this time as well. I was wondering if you're still seeing this or any other developing concerns. Would be very helpful for us as we are on this journey as well. Thanks so much.View Thread

I've visited this thread from a google search multiple times through the years and thought I would post here.
I'm a 23 yr old male, with very dry skin (eczema) since youth. I lived in the US, studied abroad in Australia when I was 21. Since I came back, my hands have started to turn bright red. No other symptoms, no pain or numbness, not even a cold sensation.
It gets better if I shower in the mornings, but always comes back at night. One doctor suggested that my blood vessels may be slightly enlarged.
Honestly, no one has no idea what causes this embarrassing issue. I drink a lot of alcohol, and it seems to be less severe after months of no alcohol consumption, but I doubt your teenagers drink as much as me.
I'm always hoping to get a response but I flat out just don't know. I moved to Japan three weeks ago, and although the humidity has done wonders for my skin..it hasn't helped the red hands at all. It's so frustrating!!!!View Thread
I'm a nanny for two girls who are 8 and 11. I love working with them and they're great kids.
However, they can be very rude, defiant, and downright mean.
This has been a pattern since I first started watching them 7 weeks ago. They are more rude to their parents than they are to me. They argue with everything they're supposed to do. The younger one throws huge screaming temper tantrums. When they argue I stay calm, use a normal tone of voice, repeat my request, and have consequences. I have never yelled at them.
The most hurtful thing though is that the older one makes a lot of catty, backhanded comments. I feel like it's hard to tell her that these are hurtful, she'll ask me why it's mean to say it.
Here are some examples: "I'm not saying that you're not pretty (meaningful pause)" "You're too blond" "Woah, your eye is crooked" (I had surgery to correct a lazy eye a few years ago) "Can I do your nails? They (meaningful pause) really need to be done"
Outside of this job I feel pretty confident. I have a loving boyfriend, great friends, I'm close to my family. But one shift leaves me drained, exhausted, sad, and crushingly insecure. Today I called the eye surgeon to see if my eyes are really that bad (my boyfriend and friends say they don't look crooked) and I was thinking that I might as well get a nose job at the same time, but...I can't afford surgery. I realized this is crazy talk. But that's how I feel when working with them, like I'm unbearably ugly and it hurts.
Their parents either ignore their rudeness or get in screaming fights with them in front of me. I don't feel like it's my place to tell the parents about it because I'm just the help, who am I to tell them how to parent?
I don't know what to do. I would appreciate any advice you have.View Thread
If your baby is suffering from blue tongue or skin, weight loss, fever or lethargy, then the grunting is probably an indication of serious respiratory problems. Check with specialist one more time to confirm on it.View Thread
Dr. Benaroch, can u tell me how long should I wait? When my daughter was about 18 months old I took her to a doctor who referred the case to a surgeon and the surgeon suggested pulling apart the labia..I didn't agree bcz I read about it online. Right after we visited the surgeon the labia came apart at the time of her regular wash up in lukewarm water. I suspect her mom(influenced by the surgeon's advice) also played a part there. She had pain for a day or two. But soon afterwards the labia stuck together. This time the adhesion extended though she could urinate normally. Now my daughter is 38 months old. things haven't improved. Once in a while she complains while urinating. Just how long can we wait doing nothing?View Thread
With pool, beach, and all things sun season here, it's important to make sure that you are using sunscreen that is effective. However, "nearly 1/3 of sunscreens tested by Consumer Reports fell short of the promised SPF protection, missing the mark by anywhere from 16% to 70%, according to the organization's annual sunscreen report."
Did your sunscreen make the list? Read the article above for more information, including the top recommended brands.View Thread

Just remember that every child is different and everyone grows at different rates. Go and see a GI doctor if you are worried and they will either put you on some milk that has more calories (like pedi sure) or tell you not to work.View Thread
