    Worried about potty training problem

    My great grand daughter is 4 now and still refuses to potty train. She is developementally fine in all areas but this. She will hold urine 8 , 9 hours before and accident. Have tried potty seats on toilet, small potty, reward box for success.... everything I can think of but to no avail. Could it be a physical problem?

  • Picky eater

    My 3year old Zackery wont eat and still has his bottle. I have tried putting the bottle in the trash, tried starving. He went without his bottle for about a day and a half, he was literally shaking and still refused to eat. I had to give in, couldn't see him like that. He would put food in his mouth chew it a bit and then spit it out or just keep the food there mixed with saliva. He refuses just about everything, the gerber baby food, yogurt, chocolate pudding, smoothies you name it. If he tastes....

    Is it normal for a 3 year old to still have his mark from the c section forceps?

    My nephew is 3, and still has this mark. It's still purple and has it's shape. Is this good or bad? I've read that the use of forceps during c section can cause brain injuries. As of right now, he is at the same "level" as his 18 month old brother. And has recently started speech therapy. Im curious to know if the forceps could have cause my nephews sppech impairedness. Idk if its morally right to use that word, but I dont know how else to explain it.

    How much should my baby weigh....

    My baby is just over 5 months old and weighs 12 pounds 3 ounces. We have taken him to a gastro doctor who found nothing wrong with him other than reflux (which all babies have). My primary care pediatrician doesn't seem concerned with his weight but my gastro doctor is talking about feeding tubes. My baby is alert, happy, rolling over, sitting up, babbling, holding toys, and even wanting to stand up when we hold his hands. Should I be concerned?

    When Autism Grows Up

    As you may have seen in some of our recent posts, April is Autism Awareness Month. Autism is often thought of as a childhood development disorder, but the truth is that it’s a lifelong disorder, and adults with autism struggle finding their place in society once they grow up. In this video you’ll hear from 30-year-old Brett Cathcart and his family about what it’s like to grow up with autism, the challenges that he and his family face, and how they are looking toward the future: http://wb.md/2q6T....

    4 year old severe itching

    My 4 year old had had a rash and itching for 7 days now all over her body. 3 days ago they put her on augmentin, atarax and triamicolone for this. The itching has gotten worse and I am lost on what to do. My next step is the ER. They seen to have no diagnosis and it's getting scary. Any suggestions are welcomed.

    Double Dosing my 4 year old of vaccines

    My daughter's doctors staff did not take record of her for year old shots that occurred back in Nov 2016, I can't get her enrolled into school if it's not on her record but I know they were done because I was there holding her... My question is can a double dose of these vaccines harm her health or mental capacity in any way? I don't want to have her double dosed but I don't want to hold her back from her education either.
