Upper Respiratory Infection

I have a 7 month old daughter and a 3 year old daughter that are both sick. I'm more concerned about my baby because she can't take medicine like my 3 year old can.

4 Year Old Behavior

I am wondering if any of you have experienced some of these characteristics with your 4 year old (I have a boy). He can't stand tags in his clothing, socks are too tight, pants are too tight (even though they are not.....), no long sleeve shirts (can't stand them!). Behaviors he has are: tantrums....screaming, yelling, and hitting the bedroom door...etc... when we are transitioning him from one thing to the next...and he is not happy about the next event. We also are hearing from others that he is bugging other kids who are next to him...

Pre-schooler with Constant Runny Nose

My 3.5 year old son started pre-school this fall and has a constant runny nose. Is there anything I should be concerned about or is it just a part of being around 17 other kids? This is his first time with lots of other kids on a consistent basis.

Chronic Bronchitis and Pneumonia in My 4 Yr. Old

My 4 yr. old son is on antibiotics once a month for bronchitis and once in a while mild pneumonia. He's been allergy tested and asthma tested but nothing showed up. He is a twin and was a preemie. He didn't have problems until he had severe pneumonia at 2 1/2 yrs. old. I'm considering consulting a pulmonary specialist to see if there is some other lung condition going on. Anyone with a constantly sick preschooler to set my mind at ease?
