Need Diaper Changing Advice

My 7 month old has turned diaper changing in to a challenging game. I am a first time Mom and have to say this is one topic I haven't read about and wasn't ready for. He flips over so fast and wants to crawl off the changing table. This sounds like something all parents probably go through as I'm sure they get bored on their backs. I'm just not sure what approach to take. The other night I made him stay on his back and he reacted so dramatic that it made me feel awful. I don't want to start a bad habit (have been changing him while he...

Baby Has Hard Bowel Movements

I have a happy one year old daughter who has always had problems with harder than normal bowel movements. When she was just a few months old we had to put her on sorbital(sugar water). I hated having to do this and started feeding her prunes and other foods that I thought would help. She's now drinking milk and it's gotten worse. She's not constipated she actually goes 4-5 times a day, but it's in rabbit pellet form. I hate to be so blunt, but I'm hoping that someone has some ideas on how to cure this without over-the-counter meds. I...

My 5 Year Old Has Excema

My 5 year old daughter has excema. When she was an infant, it was so bad that she has scratches all over her face. She was reffered to a determatologist. He gave me some cream w/a prescription in it. This does not help her at all. We have controlled the dryness on her scalp by using T-gel ut her skin is still very dry. Last time we couldn't control the dryness, the doctor put her on steriods for 7 days. I hate the fact that the only way to help her skin is to put her on steriods. I have heard lots of bad thing about steriods. The doctor...

5 Year Old Still Wetting the Bed at Night

My 5 year old boy is still wetting the bed at night. My older son was potty trained at 2 1/2 and never had any accidents even at night. My second son is such a heavy sleeper that he just doesn't wake up. The last liquid he drinks is at dinner whick is usually between 5 and 6 pm. I also make him go to the bathroom right before bed at 8:30 but he still has accidents almost every night. I really don't know what to. Do I just accept this and hope he will stop sooner or later ?

5 Year Old Snoring

My 5 year old son snores horribly at night. I have spoken with the peditrician numerous times and he always gives me the same answer. My son has very large adnoids (whatever they are) and he says that is the cause of the problem. Thankfully,he has never had any kind of throat issue (infections..etc) so the peditrician said there is really nothing to do about it. He told me to use a humidifer, which I have always used. When he sleeps I can actually see him struggling for air. I compare it to trying to suck something through a straw that's to...
