Each month, parents and caregivers may...

Lets be honest, no one likes going to the doctor. If you are going to the doctor, you are A) probably sick and B) going to spend money. Even if you aren’t sick, you will be walking into a room full of sick people. So what is your first line of defense to avoiding it all? Build up the immune system! This installment of "The Mommy Doctor" will show you ways to strengthen your immune system so it can start working for you, not against you! This isn’t new knowledge; I will not be getting a Nobel Peace Prize for telling you that. However, some of the information I am about to share may be new...like how your entire life...
We are back with Part 4 of our Mommy Doctor Series.  Read Part 1, Part 2 on building immune systems, and Part 3 on natural cold and flu fighters. Today, I will be covering the oh-so-common ear infection. When I was growing up, everyone had his or her tonsils out at some point in early childhood. If you made it to middle school with them still intact, you were lucky…or unlucky if you wanted a week off of school to just sleep and eat ice cream! These days, it seems ear infections and tubes are the new “it” diagnosis of early childhood. With the constant diagnosis of ear infections, you of course get the constant prescription for antibiotics (even though...
When my now 3.5 year old was 9 months old, I brought her to the pediatrician for a well check. During the exam, the doctor found that both of her ears were infected. I was so upset. This was the first time she had really been sick. I wondered how I missed it, how long she had been hurting, and lots of other thoughts that go through a mom’s head when she has a sick child. First and foremost was getting my sweet baby better. The pediatrician gave me a prescription for a 10-day course of antibiotics and instructions to come back in two weeks for a re-check. I immediately filled the prescription and began diligently giving her the...
Note: Sorry for the delay in the latest Mommy Doctor post. April started with the flu running through our house, which weakened our immune systems, allowing us to catch a stomach virus, that lead to a sinus cold. Needless to say, it has been a rough month! But we have continued to use what we know (and even learned a few new things on the way) and now seem to be on the mend! Read all previous Mommy Doctor posts right here. There is nothing sweeter that perfectly soft baby skin. Sometimes, however, the skin gets irritated, and we want quick remedies that are gentle for that sensitive baby skin! So what is a mom to do? Here are some...
It is so hard to see our kids sick. We just want so badly for them to feel better and feel better quick! So what is our instinct…rush to the doctor. However, most of the time this is unnecessary and actually could make them sicker. Let me just say, that this is in no way an anti-doctor post. Not only do I love our pediatrician, I know when she tells me my children need something, they really need it. My hesitation to go to the doctor is mostly not even them. Sure you have the doctors who prescribe an antibiotic for every little booboo or run unnecessary test, but most doctors do love what they do and love helping...
