  • You know, I was a dumb as a rock when I had my kid at 20 and, even so, it never occurred to me to insert any foreign object up her rectum.

  • Facebook =Revenue.

    True medical issues do not.

    This is really sad, because we are pretty sure these questions are 100% made up, but still they stand. Let's get rid of all the REAL stuff and keep the BS....

  • Have you discussed this with his doctor? Back in the day, when my kids were babies, we usually called the doctor for these things.

  • As a former EMT/Respiratory person.... I question these questions. Seriously, in all my years of ER, I can't remember one person that the ER Dr. ever referred to the internet before coming to ER....

  • Please, please, PLEASE take your baby to the doctor.

    DO NOT GIVE A 1 MONTH OLD BABY APPLE JUICE!!!!!! Their system can't handle that

    Q-tips? REALLY!?!?!?!

  • Lay off with sticking anything up his butt,for goodness sake. The tissue there is fragile, you could injure him. See your doctor. Some babies have colon problems that need to be corrected; some just don't poop that much.

  • I agree with everyone here. Unless the doctor is the one who told you to use q-tips(and I would be surprised if it was) stop that right now. Call your ped. ASAP.
