Hand Foot Mouth

My 2 1/2 yr old son has been diagnosed with Hand, Foot, Mouth. His mouth is full. Really full of sores. My pedestrian said to mix Benadryl and Maalox together and swab his mouth. Which is easier said then done with an over dramatic 2 yr old. He won't eat much because it hurt. I have been giving him children’s mortron, which helps. The sores seemed to have spread to his lips. Is there anything that we can put on his lips?

Giving Infant a Solutab

Hello! I have a 2 part question. 1) My 5 week old has been diagnosed with GERD. She was put on Zantac which didn't work and then switched to Prevacet. The Prevacet is a solutab (tablet that dissolves into granules). I was told to dissolve the tablet in a very small amout of water and then give her the pill with a syringe dropper. My problem is that the medicine is hard to dispense that way and most of it ends up running down her chin or stuck in the dropper. Have any other mothers had to give their infant a solutab and what method...

Teething and Not Eating

I may be over reacting but she is my baby... we are in full out teething mode.. at 20weeks! It is definately teething so please don't tell me she is too young. It appears to be focused on the lower left side. Anyway, she has not eaten since around 5am this morning (it is almost 3pm now). She is hungry, she attacks the bottle when I offer it but after a couple sucks, she pulls away crying and puts her hand to her mouth. I have tried cold teethers, not cold teethers, hylands tablets, a homeopathic gel, a frozen washcloth (she usually...

Is It Colic?

Hi moms, a few weeks ago, my 10 week old baby girl started having weird crying episodes. She would start crying uncontrolably mid-feeding *i am breastfeeding only*. It usually happends when i am switching between the breasts or if i am doing a diaper change in the middle of the feeding. She would cry even harder if i try to re-latch her, or even just hold her near my breast. She cries for the next 2+ hours no matter what we do, the only thing that makes it better if we're walking around while holding her vertically. If i try to give...

How to soothe indigestion during pregnancy?

I am 34 weeks and have had a lot of indigestion. I have been using Maalox but it hasn't been working all that much anymore. I have been drinking sprites which used to work but sometimes it doesn't. Does anyone have an remedies? I usually drink water through the day and a little at night. I will even get hearburn when I eat oatmeal so I don't know what to do at this point. I never really had these problems with the first child but this second one has given me so many issues.

Home Made Butt Paste Recipes (With Maalox) for Severe Rash~

When my daughter was little, the Dr recommended some concoction for her frequent outbreaks of horrid (bleeding open sores..the whole bit) diaper area rash. Often it was yeast involved as well. It would change from one diaper change to the next. We would do as much cloth diapering as we could when at home, etc and that helped a ton (water only paper towel wipes as well). But I do not remember what the recipe for the Maalox included concoction was and a friend is in need (My child is 16 now, so it was many years ago for me!). Anyone have a...

My 7 Week Old Has Stopped Eating

My 7 week old recently stopped eating. Two weeks ago she was eating 3 oz every three hours. It took her anywhere from 20 to 30 min to finish. Two Saturdays ago she just stopped eating. We went to the pediatrician twice. The first time they put her on zantac and maalox. the second time they gave her prevacid...both times asuming the cause of her not eating was acid reflux. Neither have worked. My child is eating 1 oz of hypo-allergenic alimentum every three hours and it takes her an hour to get the 1 oz down. Does anyone have a similar...

Help! Screaming Baby! What to Eat When Nursing?

I'm dyin' here! My six-week-old is on Zantac for reflux, but she still cries...and cries and cries. For up to an hour and a half (usually right after I feed her.) I'm nursing exclusively - no formula. I give her Mylicon for gas, Maalox for indigestion. Nothing seems to be working. I can hear her little tummy creaking and groaning and can actually feel it when I'm holding her. I'm afraid to let her "cry it out" in her crib because it seems to hurt her worse when she's lying flat. People have told me what not to eat while I'm...

Severe Diaper Rash

Hi everyone. I have a problem. My son, who is 2 1/2 came home with this god aweful diaper rash with blisters from daycare. All weekend we tried everything, neosporin, triple paste, A&D and nothing helped because he is holding his bowel movements and screaming in pain because a little will come out at a time from him trying to hold it. I took him to an after hours clinic last night and they gave me burn cream for it. But the problem is, it is not having a chance to heal because he won't "poop" He just squeezes his cheeks together and...

Need Ladies with Much Wisdom About Pregnancy Issues...

Hi Ladies. This is my first post as this site has been very helpful to me in the past. I am a 37 year old mother of a 17 year and I am currently 3 months pregnant (I know...What was I thinkin??? :-P ). As you can see, it's been almost 18 years since I've been pregnant and a lot of things are happening that I don't remember going on with my first pregnancy. The main thing is the freakin INDIGESTION! It's killing me. It's not exactly heartburn, it's just a stuffed feeling I get in my throat after a couple of bites of food. I remember I...
