There are parenting mistakes that are harmless. When in doubt, ask your pediatrician ||Proper weight gain is the sign that your baby is having enough milk. Not crying and not comparing with other kids ||Breastfeeding releases Oxytocin which causes contractions of the uterus, helping to stop hemorrhage and initiating weight loss ||Don’t rush into solving your kid's problems. Give him the chance to conclude, all on his own, that things are going to be okay. ||Make a habit out of drinking a glass of water every time you feed your baby. ||Your baby should have 4-6 wet diapers per day. This is a great way to monitor if they're getting enough milk ||Every milestone is an accomplishment, but it means your child is more independent and needs you a little less ||When your infant is carried, he should be oriented toward the carrying adult ||The only acceptable punishment for our children is time-out. No spanking, no shouting and no threatening ||Stop the continuous criticism to your teens. Highlight their qualities instead. ||
Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (HUS)

 

Hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) is a condition that results from the abnormal premature destruction of red blood cells. Once this process begins, the damaged red blood cells start to clog the filtering system in the kidneys, which may eventually cause the life-threatening kidney failure. Most cases of hemolytic uremic syndrome develop in children after several days of diarrhea — often bloody — due to infection with a certain strain of Escherichia coli (E. coli). Adults also may develop hemolytic uremic syndrome after an E. coli infection.

Call your doctor immediately if you or your child experiences unexplained bruises, bloody diarrhea, unusual bleeding, swollen limbs, extreme fatigue or decreased urine output after several days of diarrhea. Seek emergency care if you or your child doesn't urinate for 12 hours or more.

Hemolytic uremic syndrome requires treatment in the hospital. To ease immediate signs and symptoms and prevent further problems, hemolytic uremic syndrome treatment may include: 

    • Fluid replacement. Lost fluid and electrolytes need to be carefully replaced because the kidneys aren't removing fluids and waste as efficiently as normal. 
    • Red blood cell transfusions. If you don't have enough red blood cells, you may feel chilled, fatigued and short of breath. You may have a rapid heart rate, yellow skin and dark urine. 
    • Platelet transfusions. If you're bleeding or bruising easily, platelet transfusions can help your blood clot more normally. 
    • Plasma exchange. Plasma is the part of blood that supports the circulation of blood cells and platelets. Sometimes a machine is used to clear the blood of its own plasma and replace it with fresh or frozen donor plasma. 
    • Kidney dialysis. Sometimes dialysis is needed to filter waste and excess fluid from the blood. Dialysis is usually a temporary treatment until the kidneys begin functioning adequately again.

Despite the severity of the condition, appropriate treatment leads to a full recovery for most people with hemolytic uremic syndrome — especially young children.
