What she said. Future MDs won't know to send a kid home for rest and lots of liquids.

In my generation, pretty much everyone got chicken pox, but I never knew or heard of a person having a serious...

It may vary by state/practitioner, but I think you would need a midwife.
If I went to a hospital to birth again (which I wouldn't!), I wouldn't go w/o a doula.

Brow rice recipes for kids who don't like brown rice

Someone just gave me 10 lbs of organic brown rice, and the budget is tight right now, so it sure would be good if I could get the kids to eat it! But one won't touch it and the other will only eat a...

Kind of a tangent but I read (years ago) an account here on MDC of a child who had chronic respiratory problems recovering completely after having pertussis.

The issue wasn't calcium deficiency, but mechanical, which seemed plausible as the tooth/gum connection is essentially a joint.
But I agree, JamieCathryn, some veg foods take a lot of chewing.

"Vegetarians' teeth get loose with age,"

This was told to me by a meat-eating doctor, who said she got it from a vegetarian colleague. Supposedly because meat requires much more chewing, it keeps the teeth firmly in place. Vegetarian foods...

I never cook food that I wouldn't eat. If DH wants to eat something I don't, he can get it and prepare it himself.

So, the kids eat mostly the way I do. When DD1 was about 8, she went to camp and...

I think how specific you get depends a lot on the kid. DD1 was so empathic that even as a baby she cried if she heard people yelling on tv, or scary music. She still doesn't like violent tv or...

The nurse was very clear today. The test was definitely positive, but it was printed in a format the nurse who called me didn't understand.

That's really interesting. She had a round at 5 mos and a round at 9 mos. This was precisely the question the MD didn't answer adequately: Is there reason to expect a further round might lead to a...

I'm sure the MD wanted the test to avoid her "becoming a carrier," as the nurse put it today. Supposedly it may be possible for her to continue to carry and spread the disease, even though she has...

Positive Pertussis test

DD, 10, coughed for a month, I took her to MD, who ordered a pertussis test, but also began treating her for asthma, which improved the condition. A few days later a nurse called to tell me the test...

Broncho spasm, possible asthma

So after a month of coughing, I finally took dd to MD and this was what she thinks. Stopped short of diagnosing asthma, but she gave her a scrip for montelukast and an albuterol inhaler. I haven't...

My 10 yo dd has this problem too. I think if she's eating non-dairy yogurt every day it gets better, but we can't always get that, and we don't eat dairy. I've tried a kids pro-biotic product, but it...

Thanks everyone. Finally took dd1 to MD and she thought it was spasming, ordered a pertussis test but didn't think it was highly likely, esp. since we had similar long bout of coughing last year.

Coughing. Endless coughing.

I am going to go insane. Both dds are in at least their 3rd week of coughing. dd1, 10, coughs every 5 seconds in the AM. By afternoon it might get better. Some nights she can cough herself to sleep,...
