Love this!!
I am glad that everything turned out fine. I don't have that resource for a child but I do have a resource for parents and caregivers: Gavin DeBecker's book Protecting the Gift http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/0440509009/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?qid=1394573352&sr=8-3 After reading it I felt empowered The following review seemed to sum up the book well, it seemed very...
Making a volcano with lava, or just skip the volcano and use a muffin tin for many little experiments. Add food coloring, vinegar and baking soda. You can also add dish detergent, but that may end up in the eyes of some little ones. By the way our volcano is just a cone of construction paper with a small container inside of it to hold the ingredients. A more elaborate one could surely be made if desired (playdough, clay, etc). I place it on a cookie sheet to catch the...
These are funny, okay I have one. How much longer are you going to nurse him? You don't want to be nursing a six month old baby. That's a big baby to be nursing. That was said to me when he was four months old. If she only knew, he is still nursing. For this I am grateful (he is four years now).

Once we corrected the hormonal imbalance her immune globulins, all of them, rose back to normal level. It took a year but once they were stabilized at normal level, they remained that way for ten years. She was very healthy during that time, except as she became geriatric she did begin acquire some...
Sounds as though the situation has improved, thanks for the update. Please keep us posted.
I hope your child is feeling better soon. His body was trying to kill or keep the pathogen from multiplying, and the fever is an important part of the immune response. The rapid rise in body temp as I recall reading Wendy Lydall's book regarding disease and vaccines, and she stresses that fever is important but so is keeping the child warm and avoiding chills. Overly warm though, and as mentioned the fever climbs as the heat cannot escape. Light layers seem key. Also a...
One more bit of info I found very intriguing, I just read that lip tie can also increase risk for decay in front teeth. http://thefunnyshapedwoman.blogspot.com/2011/03/introducing-maxillary-labial-frenulum.html
I am sorry, it must be very difficult. Did anyone look into an IgA deficiency? IgA is the immune globulin that protects the mucous membranes from virus, bacteria and other pathogens.
You are welcome. Perhaps this will help but it seems similar: http://m.pediatrics.aappublications.org/content/91/5/1014.abstract http://m.pediatrics.aappublications.org/content/91/5/1014.full.pdf (Quote) Acute vitamin A toxicity is uncommon and usually associated with high intake (cumulative doses frequently greater than I 000 000 IU) over 2 to 3 weeks.
