Please can a child of two years plus take golden morn and quacker oat?
  • Best Answer
I normally recommend that potty training should start at 2 years of age, when the child is ready. So please your child is still young. In some climes, potty training a child less than two years old is termed child abuse. Please don't let people's claim of potty training as early as 6 months deceive you.You have not done anything wrong. Wait till he/she is older. All the best.

You need to take your child to the Paediatric Dentist for proper check and treatment. There are many things that can cause swollen or bleeding gums. Either the child's teeth are not properly cleaned or the child has a bacterial or viral infection e.g Herpetic stomatogingivitis, don't mind the grammar. Whatever the case may be he needs to have a proper check and treated accordingly

There are a few reasons why bleeding can occur in a child's mouth at this age, it could simply be a new tooth growing (erupting) or it could be inflammation of the gum (this can happen if his teeth are not brushed daily) or it could be a herpes simplex virus infection among other things.

Dr Aina Johnson


Blood in the stools is NOT NORMAL. It could be due to Dysentery or bleeding along the gastrointestinal tract. Blood like substance does not necessarily mean that there is blood in the stools. Kindly see a doctor and let the stools be analysed in the laboratory. If confirmed to be blood the underlying cause of the bloody stools will be further investigated and treated.
