Revenge of the ear infection.

Last week Lily’s ear infection came back. If it wasn’t bad enough to have it once, now we had it twice. We aren’t exactly sure it went away in the first place. I think the problem could be that we’ve had an allergic reaction to amoxicillin in the past so we get put on something else. Either that something else […]

Dear ear infections, you suck.

Last night Lily woke up crying again. We tried the hug & a book approach but this time it didn’t work. She’d go down for short periods of time, but then she’d be backup and crying. We then tried to let her sleep with us, but that wasn’t working well either. She’s sleep for maybe […]

Do humidifiers cause our kids to get sick?

Do you have a humidifier in your kids room? When is the last time you cleaned it? If you’re anything like us, it’s probably not been cleaned in a long time. And that’s not good. Lily’s humidifier was a year old and I don’t think we ever cleaned it. We only use it in the […]

Lily’s rash was an allergic reaction.

We’ve got dots! Lots of dots!

Not sure what’s going on now, but Lily’s latest item is a rash; lots and lots of little red dots. There are no sores, no blisters and it’s not itchy. Lily is pretty happy otherwise so we’re not freaking out just yet. Tomorrow she has her 18 month checkup so she’ll be into the doctor’s […]

Tips to giving medicine to your little ones.

We’ll Lily has completed her first round of medications. She had to take both eye drops and liquid meds and she did pretty well. With the eye drops the trick was to turn her head to the left try to put them in the corner of her left eye, right by the tear duct. Once […]

Now with pink eye and bronchitis.

I’m ready for winter to be over as Lily has been extra sick this winter. It’s always something and on Saturday, Lily’s eye looked a little pink and her cough didn’t sound good, so I took her into the doctor. Turns out she had the start of pink eye and possibly bronchitis. The good news […]

Why are fingers and nostrils the same size?

Have you ever wondered why your fingers and nostrils are the same size? Especially when it’s not cool to put your fingers in there? With Lily having a runny and crusty nose, she has a tendency to try to either wipe away some of the snot away with her hand, or pick off the crusty parts. She […]
