The Doctors are addressing parenting problems with the help of two experts! The first mom is a Doctors staffer, their director of publicity, Kate. Kate's 3-month-old, Goldie, refuses to take a bottle. Kate's husband is driving the baby to Kate's office three times a day to feed her in the parking lot!
Registered nurse and lactation consultant Jadah Parks Chatterjee is in the audience to offer Kate and her husband some help for this very common concern. Jadah advises Kate to follow Goldie's lead. She is communicating with her. If Goldie won't take a bottle, Jadah advises trying either a cup or a spoon. Jadah demonstrates feeding Goldie using both and Goldie is responsive! Jadah says to make sure Goldie is in an upright position and that Kate or her husband see that Goldie is sucking and swallowing. Jadah also recommends they follow up with an occupational therapist just to make sure everything in their baby's oral anatomy is good.
The next concerned mother is Julie, who emails The Doctors asking about her 21-month-olds tantrum's. "I feel like my baby is headed straight for the terrible twos." Julie explains her daughter has tantrums in public and she wants to know how to correct this behavior.
Pediatrician Dr. Katherine Williamson is invited to offer her advice. She explains at this age, children are going to be experiencing many developmental and crucial milestones, the most important one being communication. Not all kids are at the same stage. Learning words, what to do with those words, processing emotions, motor skills, and reaching social and developmental milestones can all add up to some difficult times for parents!
Dr. Williamson advises parents to use distractions with their toddlers. Carry books and toys wherever they go and if they aren't available, use yourself as a distraction! Tantrums will likely still happen, and when they do, parents need to ignore this bad behavior to teach kids this is not what they want to see. Of course, easier to do when at home. Unfortunately, if a child has a tantrum while out, parents must be prepared to leave. She advises parents to avoid outings during nap times, meal times and when the child is not feeling well.
