Infant and Benadryl

My 8 month old son weighs 16 pounds, 12 ounces and his doctor prescribed 1/2 teaspoon of Benadryl before bedtime. Everything I read says not to do it unless they are a year old. I'm afraid to give him the Benadryl. Has anyone given their child who is under a year old Benadryl?

Seeking Advice on Persistent (Chronic?) Cough in Infants

I am dealing with a situation that is not improving and would like to get some advice from moms with similar problem. I was a stay-home mom until our son turned 4.5 months at which point I returned to work and he started his daycare. Up until he started daycare, he had no issues whatsover. About 2 weeks into his daycare, he came home with a pink eye which was treated fairly quickly and was not too big of a deal. Right after he recovered, he came down with what seemed to be a mild case of cough. The cough got worse and after countless...

Son Wakes with Stuffy Nose

My son who is 14 months old usually wakes earlier in the morning than usual (6 am) with a stuffy nose. Once he is up he wakes up completely after his nose has been cleaned out. Rarely he will not have a stuffy nose in the early morning and sleep until 7. His schedule gets all off waking up an hour earlier (he'll take 2 naps and then go to bed late), plus I would love to have that extra hour of sleep. I've tried everything from humidifier to vaporizer and it still never fails in the early morning hours he gets such a congested nose he wakes...

Red, Swollen and Itchy Right Ear

Hello everyone, I have a 5yr old son who woke up this morning with his right ear red, swollen, and itchy. He said it does not hurt and it is only on the outside from the top to almost to the earlobe. I thought it was a bug bite of some kind but I can't see a place where it would've bitten him. He has not had an ear infection ever. I was just wondering what it could be. I am putting Benadryl on it. He doesn't complain at all. He just says mommy why is my ear fat? lol Any feedback would be appreciated. Thank you all very much!!

Children's Benadryl for Infant?

My 8 mo old has terrible allergies this week. Sneezing and a runny nose. No cough or fever is associated. The mucous is clear. Would it be ok to give him a small dosage of Children's Benadryl? I called to ask my pedi but they connected me to the nurse who has yet to return my call. Thanks!

Rash on Stomach and Back

Hi Moms, I noticed a rash on my daughters stomach and back on Saturday. It seems to come and go because sometimes I really notice it and then other times I think it is gone. She has had no fever or any other symptoms. It doesn't itch or bother her. I hate to take her in to the doc and have her be around other sicknesses but I don't want her to have something and me not know. When should I call the doc? My husband says it could be a heat rash because she has been under lots of covers this weekend with it getting so cold at night. ...
