Our children’s health and happiness is one of our top priorities as a parent. And during those first few years their (and your) mental, physical and emotional wellbeing can be challenged. Let us help guide you through some of the more common health issues you might come across including fevers, constipation, colic, regurgitation and allergies.
ArticleWhat To Do When Your Baby Has Colic
Colic is an unexplainable unsettled period where your baby is crying for a long time, sometimes for hours, and is inconsolable. The true definition is crying ≥3 hours per day, on ≥3 days per week for ≥1 week. If your baby is feeding and growing normally, and your doctor says that everything is fine, then try not to worry. Our tips may help.
ArticleReflux in Babies - Key Information
Reflux is when the contents from your baby’s stomach flow back up into their oesophagus or mouth (which may or may not include vomiting). It is actually very common and, in most cases, harmless and not a cause for concern. However, if your baby is vomiting frequently, please consult your doctor.
ArticleHow To Settle a Crying Baby
Crying is your baby’s first form of communication and is designed to provoke adults into action. Your baby’s cry tugs at your heart strings leaving you feeling anxious, tense and guilty for not knowing why your baby is crying and what you can do to comfort them.
ArticleAllergies in Children
Statistics show that Australia has one of the highest rates of allergies in the world, although it’s not entirely understood why. The causes of allergies in children are complex and linked to several factors. If you suspect your child is allergic to a food or substance, always get it checked out by your doctor.
ArticleFever in Toddlers
When your toddler has a fever it is always a concern but don’t worry, it is not always a cause for panic. Fever is a symptom that occurs when the body is fighting an unwanted intruder such as bacteria or virus. Fever in toddlers can lead to adverse reactions so keep an eye on your toddler if they have a temperature and don’t hesitate to see your doctor if you are concerned.
