Hi everyone. My four year old boy has such a poor appetite and not gaining any weight and look tired all the time. He is just 13kg and he will turning five next month. I took him to to many doctors and they all say he is fine and he was a small baby to start with and will be like that. But being his mother my instinct says if somehow I can increase his appetite he will put on some weight and increase height. I have tried giving him iron supplements that did help him a while and then it just stop working.
After trying everything and feel helpless and probably crying everyday and stressing about his health non stop and so here I am asking for some home remedy instead. Every meals times are do stressful and torture for him and myself.
Please help me and I want my child to be happy and enjoy food than hating food. Am begging for help!!!

My nine month son has suffered from diarrhea, cough and vomiting but now he is stopped since I change formula( recommendent by Dietian). He does not have appetite and he weight 6.3kg. How can I give him to like food?
What age is ok to give apple cider vinegar? My EBF [exclusively breast fed] 6 month old son has had a runny nose with chest congestion and a cough for over a month now and I'm wondering what is safe. It doesn't seem serious but he's had it so long now.

Dear Ted, I have been reading a lot and I must say that I am unsure about the dosages to give to my children. My daughter is seen by ped endo for possible early puberty. She is a Leukemia ALL survivor, was diagnosed at age 2.75 years and went through treatment and in remission for 5 years. She is in excellent health and doing good at School. However she started developing breasts early and that is the reason we saw the endo. They did ultrasound and some blood work, the results of ultrasound reveal a small cyst and the doctor reassured that it might go away and nothing to be concerned. While we are waiting for the blood results, I thought it would be a good idea to try ACV. Could you please suggest the dosage for a 7.5 year old girl child. My almost 10 year old son suffers from eczema especially around stomach, shoulder and groin area. Kindly share us the children dosage.
Thank you, Vid

Hi, My 3 1/2 year old has seasonal Asthma. I'd like to give her the ACV, but not sure how much is safe for a 34 lbs...firecracker...
I have an 8 year old son, and would like to try giving him ACV for his allergies and asthma - but am unsure of how much to give him daily. Can children have the same amount as an adult, or should I give him half? Can ACV cause a reaction with prescription medications?
After 4 years of allergy treatment (2 for asthma) and many medication adjustments later, he still isn't getting much relief. I have read so many good things about ACV, on your site, I think I am going to start giving it to the whole family. Thanks!!
ACV for infant eczema: My daughter is now 9 months old. She's had eczema since she was 2 month. I tried almost everything on her, prescribed drugs too. Nothing has worked so far. I read from this website that ACV seems to help a lot of people with eczema, so I tried it on her as well. Apply directly to skin after bath (diluted with 2/3 water), followed by moisturizer and Vaseline. It did help with the itchiness for the first two days. However, starting on the third day, her skin became extremely dry and flaky, so she started scratching again. We did not try anything new in between, so I assumed it must be ACV. I have stopped using ACV on her since, and her skin is getting better (dryness) but still covered with eczema. Am I using it right? If this is working for many others... It really breaks my heart seeing my daughter suffering from it on daily basis. I would try anything given the situation. Please help!

I was wondering if there were any posts of other parents of toddlers (age 3 or 4) that gave their tricks on how to get a toddler to drink a ACV mixture?? Mine won't drink it, but I did add it to his bath water and put it on his spots.
Hello! I am a 30 year old mother. My baby is 7 months old and I also feed her. I used to have an amazing skin earlier when i was in my early 20's but now its dull and have black spots. I have tried using different products but nothing works for me. I have visible pores but i try not using soap because i have found that it makes skin more sensitive. i have also gained tremendous weight after i got married. I am Asian.
I would like to know if i can take ACV as i am feeding baby for weight loss as i read on this site...also what is the best quantity of baking soda that i can use on the skin in form of scrub as i have sensitive skin.
Waiting for a reply...

I nanny for infant twins who had terrible cradle cap. We began using a cotton ball to apply undiluted organic apple cider vinegar to their heads twice on bath day only, which is twice a week for them. To my knowledge, this was just to control the smell. Within a week or so, the cradle cap had drastically improved and after 2 weeks, was completely gone. We continue the application to ensure that it doesn't come back. I'm a believer and now am looking into remedies for myself!
my 1 year old daughter was diagnosed with perioral dermatitis. she was prescribed metronidazole cream 1%. i have yet to use it because of all the negative reviews...ie, may work while you're using it, but then when you stop the cream the rash comes back. not to mention, it's an antiobiotic cream and i don't want her to absorb that. so, i'm trying other steps first. i've been using vaseline as a barrier and bach's rescue remedy cream. it seems to be maintaining at the same level. not worse, not better. she sucks on her blankie at night and definitely is drooley on herself during the day. i try to blot the wetness and reapply creams all day long. can i use apple cider vinegar on a 1 year old? should i dilute it for her? a friend suggested mixing neosporin and vaseline to see if that had any effect. ever heard of that?
ACV for sore throat in a 3 year old
my 3 year old (who has a cold) woke up in the middle of the night complaining of a sore throat, i immediately gave her apple cider vinegar w/ a little bit of raw honey and a couple pinches of turmeric. i gave her 3-4 teaspoons of this concoction and she said it went away and went back to sleep. when she woke this morning she said her sore throat was still gone!
I knew the ACV and Vit C would work, but I doubted the quickness of the relief. I had to do something though for my daughter. She is 4 years old and was in incredible pain. It took days to realize it was a UTI because she wasn't describing it well and I thought it was heat rash on her butt or a rash from not wiping right. She did have some diaper rash looking redness.
We kept putting desenex on her, then she started to apply it to her urethral opening... Which made me wonder if that was where the pain was or if she, but I still didn't know if maybe it was yeast or bladder and that was only this morning... So it took days to realize what was going on. By the fourth day, today, she was crying and squirming. I questioned her and found that it hurts when she pees... then I knew for sure.
I came here because antibiotics are worse than the illness usually and I knew I could at least get some healing started if I needed to go to a dr.
I gave her 2 tbsps ACV in 12 oz distilled water sweetened with 2 packs of stevia. SHE CRIED AND SCREAMED bout the TASTE!!!! I had to force her sip by sip to drink it! Many tears! LOL... But honestly, 20 minutes later she had stopped crying! She is now laughing and wants her nap! I also gave her 2 Vit C pills because she really only drank half the nasty concoction. I'll write again to update since its really only been 30-40 minutes.

My 2 year old has had a rash on her feet for over a month now. I think it is athletes foot, but I have never seen it and the pictures on the internet are so extreme it is hard to compare.
It started out with a few bumps where her toes connect to her foot - on top of the foot. It wakes her up in the middle of the night itching - but during the day it doesn't seem to bother her that much. In between her toes also felt leathery. After a few weeks, in between her toes started peeling.
I was started rubbing her feet every night with a mixture of calendula, grapefruit seed extract, tea tree oil and other herbs for the skin. After 3 weeks it seemed to have gone away, but only for a few days, then it came back.
Now there are red bumps in the same place as before and little spots all over the top of her foot.
I have been trying an all natural athletes foot cream I purchased from an organic grocery store. I have using it 2 times a day for 10 days with no results.
Her feet don't stink and as far as I can tell, there isn't anything on the bottom of her feet.
Is this athletes foot? If so, is apple cider vinegar safe to use on children? Can I add it to her bath - because trying to get her to sit still and keep her feet in a bowl of vinegar for even 3 minutes is tough!
I am afraid to do anything for too long because of her sensitive skin - I don't want to cause more damage than there is.
