Blinking, Fever, and Flu

by Doll
(JHB - South Africa)

My baby is 15 months old and she has started blinking constantly, it makes me worried because it started now after having a runny tummy, fever and flu at the same time. What could cause the blinking?


Do I keep her warm? or take her clothes off and cool her down?

Worried,
Doll

Can I give my 18 month old cold medicine?

by Lindsey
(Chicago, IL)

What cold medicine can I give my 18 month old who has greenish mucus and a constant runny nose? Yes, he is still teething, but all this drainage is making him throw up some of his food and settling in his throat. I clean his nose constantly with an aspirator, but is there any medicine?

Should we use vaccines?

by Sandy
(Toronto, Canada)

I also have strong beliefs/views in a more natural lifestyle, and my partner and I have begun to think about not vaccinating our baby (due in 2 months).

I still feel I need more support in that decision (meeting parents, support groups, information on the topic.) I have asked my midwife to look into her databases to see studies and stats that would make me more sure about the choice.

Is there any literature or sites that you recommend?? How has that decision affected you and your family?

I mean in regards to employment and schools, I work in a school and there is a vaccination log needed to enroll and for me to work!

My partner has told me about a religious waiver form, I just haven't found that info in the area I work in.

I would greatly appreciate it!

Stiff Spine?

I have noticed my grandbaby feels stiff all the time, just her back. She doesn't seem in pain just straight and stiff. I know she has a lot of gas it seems, She looks healthy but just doesn't feel relaxed ever, always stiff just her back only.

Any ideas? I been reading and googling. I really hate to say anything to the mother of the baby I don't want to scare her, but feel its something that should be brought up to the Dr.

Maybe I am paranoid being a new grandbaby. but even my husband noticed it and said to the 3 month to relax, just just like her back is a board.
