  • My baby blinks excessively. What's wrong?

    Excessive blinking is common in children under 6 years of age. It can appear suddenly and can last about 6 months. As long as baby follows movement with his eyes and is doing well in all other aspects of development, you can just monitor for now. If it does not resolve within 6 months, get his doctor to check.

  • Is my vitamin b12 deficiency from my change in diet?

    Your B12 deficiency is most likely from the change in your diet. Some of us do not have the factor that absorbs B12 from our diet. So, when our diet is low in B12, we can become B12 deficient. Supplements are recommended. As for vegan foods, you can turn to rice/soy/almond/coconut beverages fortified with B12 or ready-to-eat cereals fortified with B12. READ MORE

  • My second child is 14 months old and hasn't taken her first steps. Is something wrong?

    Every child is different. 18 months is the upper limit of normal for walking - so, your second child is probably a late bloomer compared to your first child. I would recommend assessment by your physician to make sure that there are no issues with other developmental milestones. READ MORE

  • Motion sickness in children?

    Nonmedicinal management of motion sickness includes: (1) sitting where there is the least motion - For example, in the centre of the backseat (2) a semi-reclined position with the head braced is best (3) focus on things straight ahead outside the car, i.e., avoid reading and avoid looking at passing by things (4) avoid the following before or during travel - dairy products, salty and fatty foods, large meals (5) wristbands and magnets may be helpful, but there is little information on their efficacy READ MORE
