20-Month Old Sick & Won't Drink Much

My 20-month old twins started their flu on Saturday night. As of last night, my son was still vomiting. I have been giving him Pedialyte...which he refuses to drink, water (which is what I prefer), ice chips (refuses those, too) and water with just a bit of apple juice. Up until now his diapers have still been wet and I haven't been too concerned. However, after he got up this morning, he just had a trace of moisture in his diaper and each time I hand him his cup to drink water with apple juice, he begins to cry and throws the cup. ...

Advice? Allergic to Something in Home?

Hi! For the past month or so I have been having a lot of sore throats followed by congestion (and snoring) at night, major nose blowing in the morning, and then it all clears out for the rest of the day, but starts up again in the evening. I have realized that the sore throat only starts when I am at home, but always comes on when ever I get home and lasts until late the following morning. I figured it was just allergies, but the pattern is telling me that i am allergic to something in my house. I am looking to all of you wonderful...

14-Month-old Is Constipated

My 14-month-old son is constipated a few times a week. I have been in contact a few times with the pediatrician's office and am doing everything I can. This started when he was switched over from formula to whole milk. Also, he does not drink much water. I am always forcing it on him, but he won't drink much. I give him prunes or blueberries to eat, make his baby cereal with prune juice, give him whole grain foods, etc. I also water down his milk and occasionally put Karo syrup in his milk. He still has problems with constipation. ...

Milk Supply Going Down

I have a 5 month old daughter that I have breast fed since she was born. I went back to work 2.5 months ago, so I pump 3 times a day for 20 minutes each to get milk for her while I'm at work. It seems that this week my milk supply has been cut in half. I am doing everything the same but I am just not getting the amount of milk I used to. Between my 3 pumping sessions I would get 17-20oz, she eats 15oz a day in the time that I am gone, but this week I am lucky to get 10oz. I thought that maybe I was getting dehydrated but I have been...

I Need Diaper Rash Help!

My poor baby girl has been sick with the "common cold" (so the doctor says everyweek when I bring her in!) and because of this she has had slight diarrhea which has caused this horrible diaper rash!

Is there any magic things that you mommas have tried that I don't know about? Any favorite...
