Coughs

Coughs
Most children will have at least six respiratory infections each year. These are almost always mild, last only a few days and have no consequences. Children will simply get a blocked, runny nose, may have a mild fever and feel slightly unwell. In young babies (who are nose breathers) feeding can become difficult for a couple of days.     

Tummy Troubles

Tummy Troubles
Tummy upsets in small children are common and can be caused by all kinds of things. Most are not serious but with good habits and reading the signs of illness, you can help to stop them becoming a problem.
