Hi Donna,

   If you could post your followup, it would be great. Lately, my kid too has this problem and I'm yet to go to Ped. I searched the Internet to land here - the only place that talks about this issue.

I would be happy to attempt to answer any questions about general pediatric topics, either medical issues or behavioral issues. This would include all the various questions one receives in a busy pediatric practice. I`m a board certified pediatrician in northern Michigan and have been in practice for over 15 years. I enjoy the teaching role I have in our practice and would enjoy the opportunity to help others with their pediatric problems.
