My 3 Year Old Doesn't Sleep

Please help, I'm so frustrated, I just want to cry. My 3 year old doesn't seem to sleep more than 8-9 hours in a 24 hour period. Aren't kids this age supposed to get 11-12 hours of sleep in a day? She's been out of her crib for two months, and she started preschool earlier this week. Our bedtime routine is a nightmare (for me), and it has been for a while, not just recently. I start with the end of her TV show at 8:15, then it's brushing her teeth, which usually takes 15 minutes to half an hour because she doesn't want to cooperate,...

Diaper Rash ?

My daughter got that nasty stomach virus that is going around and still is having diarrea(sp?). she now has a bad diaper rash bc of the diarrea, during the day I change her as soon as i know she has gone, but what she is doing is going at night and sleeping in it. I can tell bc it is all dried up on to her little bottom. I have been using desitin creamy and it seems to work ok but it keeps coming back. I am just wondering if there is anything else I can do or if I just have to wait it out?

What Should I Do for Diaper Rash?

I think my 2 month old son has some diaper rash on the inside of his thighs and his lower stomach above his diaper. I have never seen or felt diaper rash so I'm not sure if that is what it is. The skin is bumpy and feels leathery. I have applied some A+D Ointment on it but I'm not seeing a difference. Do any other moms have any suggestions of anything else I should be applying? Does Desitin work better? Thanks, D.

Help, My Son Won't Take His Medicine!

Ben, 2 1/2, is on antibiotics for a possible staph infection on his cheek (again). I'm having the hardest time getting him to take his medicine. He wont take it willingly, he will just spit it out. I have to have him take it, else he will end up in the hospital like last year for 5 days on IV antibiotics. I've tried bribing him with lots of different candy, but he still wont take it. I've tried mixing it with applejuice, but he still tastes it and wont drink it. I've tried doing it very slowly while he is sleeping, but he will just...

Stomach Flu Stress

My 4-year-old started a really bad stomach flu in our home. It was a weird one. She had bad tummy aches during the day and would throw up all night long for 4 nights in a row. She ate a little during the day, but would be sick again at night. I had about a week break then my 18-month-old got it. She has been sick for 4 nights now and is miserable during the day. Has anyone heard of this going around and how have those people had it? I'm just wondering how common or uncommon this is. I get very stressed out with the stomach flu. I like to...
