I would definitely NOT give a sugar drink to sick kids.  Sugars make your body work harder and take longer to heal.  I would give chicken broth with salt, especially homemade chicken stock with...

Beet kvass and lots of cilantro in their diets.  I'd also do kombucha.  All remove toxins from the body and the uncooked cilantro removes heavy metals.

Caedenmomma - I think we'll try that.  It seems to be likely the reason he's waking up - he needs to pee.  We haven't really started structured potty training yet, but he will use the toilet when we...

I'm about to have baby # 3 and a 2 hour wait time doesn't sound bad to me at all.  I think 10 minutes sounds like the right time for pulling things together, however, you shouldn't try to find a...

I think it's been a month now that our DS2 has been waking in the wee hours and pitching a fit.  These aren't night terrors.  In fact, he wakes up slightly fussy, like a normal I-need-blankets or...

My son, who just turned 4, did this through most of the time he was 3 - suddenly waking (or talking in his sleep) because he is frustrated about a dream.  It wasn't all the time, mind you, but at...

We're moving in the next couple weeks and I'm worried there won't be a place to put the bed against a wall without a window there.
