Is it a cold or allergies?

Now that spring is here, I have a hard time distinguishing between cold symptoms and allergies. Is there any easy way to discern between the two? I don’t want to give my child allergy medication for a simple cold.

Ask the pediatrician: Kids & chores

We have 3 children, ages 9, 6, and 2 years. I know that chores are important but I am having a difficult time following through with a plan. By the time everyone finishes homework, it is time for bed. Then I find myself doing their "chores" after the kids have gone to bed. Do you have any advice?

Ask the pediatrician: Vitamin D & infants

I have a 2 week-old daughter, and she is a breastfed baby. Her pediatrician says that she needs to be taking vitamin D supplementation. I really do not want to give her any vitamins. Could I just take a vitamin D supplement instead of her?

Ask the Doctor: What is thrush?

I am a breast-feeding mother of a two-month old daughter. I have recently started having nipple pain during feedings and have heard that this may mean that my daughter has thrush. What is thrush and how do I know if she has it?
