My 19-month-old daughter has had one ear infection after another since she turned 1 (and I stopped breastfeeding).

How do I care for my 18-month-old son's uncircumcised penis? I've been slightly pulling his foreskin down to clean, but when I took my son to his 18-month visit, his pediatrician pulled his foreskin all the way down to the base and said I should do this from now on. The next day, I noticed my son's penis was red and had cuts near the top. But my friend's son's pediatrician said to just leave the foreskin alone.

My 22-month-old has begun to go to a day care center. I've heard that kids get sick a lot during the first year of close contact with other kids. To boost her immune system, I started to give her deodorized garlic tablets, but then I got concerned about other ingredients and whether they are safe to give to a baby. They are: dicalcium phosphate, microcrystalline cellulose, vegetable stearic acid, croscarmellose sodium, vegetable magnesium stearate, and colloidal silicon dioxide. And do you have any other ideas on how to boost a baby's immune system?

Constipation, the passage of infrequent, hard, and painful stools, is a common problem, affecting 3 percent of preschoolers and 1 to 2 percent of school-aged children. But pooping once every few days is not abnormal if that is your child’s usual pattern. In fact, 96 percent of children ages 3 to 4 show tremendous variety in pooping patterns: anywhere from three stools a day to three a week.

Pets are generally great for kids, provided the children are developmentally ready to benefit from having an animal in the house. More than half of all American households have pets, and health care providers are becoming more aware of the positive emotional and physical effect that pets have on their owners. In general pets pose less of a threat of infection than other children do, but there are some diseases that you should know about if you have a pet in the house.

Although tummy aches are a common complaint in children—the reason for 5 to 10 percent of all visits to a doctor or emergency facility—they seldom turn out to be a cause for serious concern. Most of the time, tummy pains are caused by a viral infection and disappear in a couple of days. A study from the University of Indiana showed that only one or two out of a hundred children had problems serious enough to require specific treatment or surgery.

Many new parents (and some experienced ones, too) are uncertain about how to give medicine to babies and young children. The secret is believing that the child needs the medicine. A child can sense any doubts in your mind and will resist no matter what you do, unless you sincerely believe you're doing what is best. Be confident and determined. If you aren't convinced the medicine is necessary, talk to your child's health care provider first, rather than trying half-heartedly to get it into your child.

A cold is probably the illness your child gets most frequently. On average, a child under 7 gets seven to ten colds per year, each lasting one to two weeks. Children over 6 months don’t usually need to see their health care provider for a cold unless there is ear pain, sore throat, or fever over 102 degrees that lasts longer than a day or two.
