    3 year olds tummy issue

    MY 3 year old son has just developed as of last night a case of diarrhea. Has continued through this evening. He is eating and drinking normally and plays and is his normal self except for the diarrhea. We are giving him Culturelle kids chewable. Am I silly to be so concerned? I know the doctor would say to push fluids etc. and there is no fever either. Am i being overly worried?

    Becoming a father and family man again at 56

    I have 7 kids and just had my 8th. They range in age from 34 to a month old. I also have a couple of grandkids.

    What To Do

    Dear All: I recently cut my parents off and I am seeking input whether I did the right thing. My father in February called the woman who watches our 2 year old son a “fat ass” then said my wife was inflexible for not selecting a daycare in their town which is three towns from ours and would require of her an extra 30 minutes of drive on her days off. He then said “You people don’t know what the *** you are doing. Don’t get me started. Your son can’t even talk.” And this comment triggered me. Our....

    Parents, I have a question about referrals

    A little bit of background, my son is 2 and has always had a big head. It runs in our families. The doctors asked if it was common in our families because they were worried about fluid on the brain. After we explained that it was common they didn't seem to be worried. There's a doctor which we never had to see but they were suggested by the NICU after he was born. They didn't seem concerned about fluid on the brain either, until this last visit. I get the feeling that this doctor is covering....
