    Hi, I have always had cuts all over my tongue, some look like big slices, i also have patches of raw looking tongue with white outline which appear over the surface. iv been looking it up and each symptom indicates a fissure tongue and geographic tongue but can you have bother? also when i eat certain foods, mostly sweet things, or even just things like toothpaste parts of my tounge swell up. sour things make it sweel up alot too like sour lollies. when i look at it i can see what i think is each individual tastebud but i dont know there red and the can sometimes be quite big and the cuts in my tongue all appear to seperate with the swelling. and i get a sort of tingling feeling, especially when i touch it, and it can sort of hurt to touch my teeth to my tongue, not like ouch but not normal either. everything i look up deals with only one of these problems and i know a tingly tongue is a symptom of both but are the enlarged "tastebuds"? and what sets it off? and is that in conjuction to what iv described? iv become very selfconcious of my tongue as i think its very ugly and iv notcied spots of colour moving around my 6mnth old sons tongue but very light spots and im affraid he might have it too. i just wana know what it is thankyou.

    Hi, my son zeplan has had a number of little problems that he has ended up on antibiotics for, im not to familiar with antibiotics as iv only been on them twice in my life. however i know that they kill both good and bad bacteria and i wana know what this might mean for zeplan in the future. (i dont know if antibiotics names are different in the usa but im in australia) at age 4 mnths he had a sore on his bottom that kept getting infected, we had to wait for a specialist to diagnose it so he went on "keeflex" for 5 days, after a week off of them the infection came back and he was put on "keeflex" again for 13 days. he got a fever and i took him back to the doctor and he was put of "keeflex" for 2 days (was supposed to be longer) but the fever turned into a ful out flu and so the keeflex was stopped for "e-micen-200"(unsure of spelling) for 1 week. he then got to go to the specialist for his bottom and diagnosed with a anal fistula so he didnt need antibiotics to cure that. a week later (last night) he got a fever again and sore ears and chesty cough and the doctor has said tis a viral infection and could decelop into broncitus (dont know how to spell) so now he is on "amoxcil paedo drops" (cant spell) for 6 days. so in total it comes to almost 2 mnths of antibiotics with 3 weeks break approx spread through there. his also breast fed with some home made solids. has anyone got experience with such matters? im normally against antibiotics but i know with a baby and infection can jump in there body from one place to another, i just didnt realise he would be on them for so long :( please try not to scar me just facts if its not a good outcome and lots of lovley stories if good. lol thankyou

    Ok i'm a few years away from needing this but it is on my mind often. I was foolish and got pregnant to a guy and we didn't stay together and he dosn't want anything to do wiht my son. I'm fine with that as he was honest about how he felt and I dont want someone around my son who dosn't want to be there. But one day I will have to explain to my son why he dosn't have a dad. And when fathers day comes around what do I do. Because I remember in school they always got you to make cards for your dad on fathers day. Now his only 3 months old so there is ages. And in that time I may or may not meet someone. His dad may or may not change his mind. anything can happen. But if his dad dosn't become part of his life, I will need to explain it to him one day. Does anyone have any tips or hints or life experiences to help me prepare for that one day? Even if i do end up finding someone i want my son to know the truth, i dont want him finding out later in life that someone he thought was his dad wasnt. And i dont need any lectures about my choices in life, yes things happend that wernt right and im now in a situation in life that one dosnt sit back and hope for but thats done i have a beautiful son because of any mistakes i may have made, and he therefore is not a mistake because i love him so. so please dont bother with bad comments about my choices. i just want to make sure that i dont harm him in any way when i explain to him y he only has a mummy. (while his young ill just say some ppl have mummies and daddies some only have mummies some only have daddies) but his going to get older and ask more questions. i just want to prepare how to handle them, so that it works out best for him. thankyou

    Hi, I just want to know if im normal or not lol. I've recently given birth to a beautiful baby boy. But since I got pregnant and still now I find myself getting very irritated with men. I am single with no contact with the father, but I don't feel that im mad about that. I share a house with a family friend Phil, and I get very annoyed by him, he is 74 and we had always gotten along well (his my dads best friend) so when we both found ourselves in bad living situations we started sharing. Things he does that irretate me are just simple things like whenever somone comes over to visit he quickly tells them that my son is the most perfect quite baby in the world, and even tho i think my son is perfect he does cry, etc... and i can be stressed out by it but because he says that to everyone i feel like im creating drama if i talk about the fact that he was really unsetteled the night before etc... Anthoner thing he does is he constantly asks me how to do things like using the oven because he only uses it once a week everytime he uses it he asks me to show him how. Theres also alot of other little things he does that annoy me when really there just little things that i shouldnt be getting so heated about but i do. Im like it with other guys as well like my friend ant came over to see the baby and I spent the entire time wishing he would leave because everything he talked about pissed me off, like cars when he knows i dont understand about cars. Also my dad is another one me and him have never been close but the other day at a lunch for my 21st birthday he made a comment about how i was juggling breast feeding and eating my lunch (my lubch mostly went cold before my hands were free) and i was just really pissed at that. now i know these are all unreasonalble complaints but i cant stop myself from getting pissed off at guys. Has this happend to anyone else after they got pregnant. I kinda think its because men often make jokes about things that they know nothing about like pregnancy symptoms etc... i just started to get annoyed at them and now its just escelated to getting really frustrated with all men.

    I asked this question a little while ago and only got a few resonable responses. Im not after peoples opinions on if they think this is nuts or not. Its a choice im just trying to get the information. Potty training from birth or elimination communication is when the caregivers learn the signals of a baby when it is going to eliminate waste. Babies aparnetly make different body actions, sounds etc... leading up to the elimination. When the baby makes these signals you take them to an apropriate place and signal with sounds such as ssssss etc... and they waste (you are not just holding them there hoping eventually they will waste). The theory that I understand behind this that the baby learns the motion and the place of pasing waste gradually and comfortably. Avoiding the problems of a toddler needing to re learn where, when and how to waste when coming out of nappies. It dosnt push them to change habbits they have adapted and is used as a long term learning method. I like the idea of this method and as i am 6 days overdue im using this time to research such things. However all i can find is peoples good experiences and glowing reports of elimination communication. I cant find anything negative however i know that there are negative feelings about this practice by proffessionals. Does anyone have a personal experience with infant potty training good or bad? Does anyone have access to further information on infant potty training good or bad? I just want to get all the information before i start the practice but i do believe that it is a good method from what i have researched. Please dont bother responding with something like "holding a baby over a toilet is stupid" im after constructive information.

But whenever im talking to ppl or on facebook or msn or something I keep having ppl that I havnt really spoken to saying there coming to see me in the hospital after the birth. Now some of these ppl i was close to once, like my ex boyfriends parents but iv barley spoken to them since we broke up a year and a half ago, even tho i have managed to become friends with him again. But other ppl are my neighbour who iv spoken to like twice. And i cant stop them from finding out because they are close to someone that i do want to visit. I know these ppl might just feel protective of me or something because of my age, limited family support and no partner but im one of those ppl who dont like asking for help and looking vunerable. My sister is going to be around and my aunties so there there for my help. But these other ppl are going to tell me what to do, and how to do things, etc.... and there going to do it while im still in the hospital learning to be a mother and breastfeed and learn signals and everything. I am excited for this birth but I dont want everyone crowding around me in the days afterwards when i have such a physical and emotional time of learning. Why do they feel they should be part of it? and has anyone else had this problem?
