  Health Issues: Myopia - 6 yr old
Name: Kay M
Date: 2007-07-03
My 6 yr old dd just got her first pair of glasses. Her number is -1.25 and -.75. The doc said she should only wear them when she is watching TV or movies. Now another girl here who is a yr younger with the same eye condition wears it all the time. Her mom is a doc and she says thats how it is done in India.

I am confused...what should I do ? Has anyone gone thru this or has any advise?

Worry not

Try some home remedies or go to a doctor for treating the worm infection. Complexion of your son should not matter much. As he grows he will get his own complexion. ... - Radhika Sahay [View Message]
Teething probs
Your suggestion is ridiculous. You should give her a teether, the soft chewable type. It will her relieve pain. You can store the teether in freezer for some time and then give it to your daughter. It works wonders. ... - Shamim Ansari [View Message]
Great idea
My daughter used to cry a lot while she was teething. Teethers were hard for her and seldom provided comfort. Then I hit upon an idea. I took a clean, soft washcloth, soak it in apple juice, and wring it out and placed it in the freezer until it is ' frozen' . It will not freeze hard like water does, but will be much softer. Then I gave it to my daughter and she was happy ... - Sumitra Pant [View Message]
