Saline drops (much better than suction, IMO), and if he's very congested, sleep on an incline. Tylenol or Motrin for fever, but otherwise no meds. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I'm almost 28 weeks pregnant and baby has rhythmic movements lasting for up to 3 hours -- don't seem like the hiccups I had with my first db. Anyone experienced this? I'm freaking out about some kind of seizure or heart arrhythmia... 3 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

thanks. its been very hard with formula. he reacted horribly when we first tried at 4 months (vomitted, probably a milk allergy that he outgrew). then he refused soy. recently he's been taking blended bottles (no more vomiting) and today i asked her to give him one full formula bottle (i did this myself over the weekend) [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Considering a move to San Diego - - can anyone help me with neighborhoods? Budget around $1.25M. Is this do-able with three kids? 1 Reply [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Definitely yes - your budget will work quite comfortably here in beautiful sunshiny San Diego! I would recommend these areas to start looking into first, as these are some of the finest cities San Diego has to offer - and with your Budget - you'll fit right in like a charm!! Escondido, La Jolla, & Del Mar are all beautiful areas that are all very close to our San Diego Beaches - If you would prefer more of a "out in the country" type of neighborhood I would definitely recommend Lakeside! It is not as high end as the first three I mentioned, but it is a darling and very quaint type of town that has an awesome community and lots of horse people living in it! (It even has a Rodeo!) Lakeside is about 25 minutes from the San Diego Beaches and isn't as congested with traffic as the first three cities I mentioned... Another cute little quaint town just a few min away from Lakeside is a lovely town called, Blossom Valley - It is more high-end and also has an awesome community! The cities I would recommend that you avoid right off the bat would be El Cajon, La Mesa, and especially National City... These areas tend to have a higher level of crime rates, and are just no where near as pretty as the rest! I hope this helps! If I can help with anything else - or be a sounding board for you - feel free to reach me at service@shabbyroses.com Good luck - and welcome to America's Finest City!! [ Reply | More ]

Have the phone number and address of the closest-to-you 24 hour drugstore. Call your pediatrician and wait for the call back to describe the situation. If your pediatrician is willing to write a perscription based on past experience/phone call you may only need to go to the drugstore this evening/tomorrow morning. [ Reply | More ]
