I took him to a follow up appointment today, and his right ear is full of fluid and probably was the cause of all of his pain last night. His doctor is concerned that his ear looks that bad with all of the antibiotics he is on, and is referring us to an ENT specialist.
I do not think he has had enough air infections to justify getting tubes put in, but what else can we do to relieve his pain? What other procedures or suggestions with the specialist have? He had a very traumatic experience at the ER last week and I just worry so much about them saying they want to give him tubes. Any ideas or experience would be appreciated – thank you
Could somebody send me an invitation to the attachment parenting group? I have a few questions :)) just had my little one four weeks ago but hubby and I like to discuss topics for the future. I'm wondering two things. When is an ideal time (developmentally) to move a child out of mom and dad's room for bedtime? She's sleeping in my chest right now and she just sleeps SO much better when we are cuddling. But I don't want it to be that way forever and ever.
Also, on a much more concerning level, I don't want to spank and my husband while he doesn't really WANT to spank (who would?) he says he thinks if we have "exhausted every other means of discipline as parents when she is older he thinks that sometimes spanking is necessary (albeit rarely)" and I don't agree. I think we as parents have the opportunity to make a decision that spanking will not be a part of our family and we will make a commitment to find another way. And he is not willing to say YES we will find another way :( Has anyone else ever had this argument with your SO?
I'm looking to make some massage oil for my bub due in December. Was wanting to use coconut oil on her skin but wondered if it was safe to mix a little lavender oil into it? Is it safe to apply to baby's skin? Any particular quantity?
To be clear, it's not simply a desire to eat healthy food, it's an obsessive behavior that leads to guilt, and negatively affects relationships or lifestyle. It's characterized by things like, refusing to eat out because you can't verify the source for ingredients, spending hours a day worrying and researching foods to remove from your diet, inflicting your dietary choices others (such as a spouse) because you assume they just don't understand the choices they are making.
Here is a link to an article about it. There are also real per record medical articles out there, but I assume those will go over most peoples' heads, so I posted something a bit more friendly to read.
Anyone have any suggestions on natural ways, remedies, food/diet on how to lower high BP. Greatly appreciated! thanks!
