Ask our paediatrician

If teething and tantrums have got you at the end of your tether, write in to the Paediatrician expert for some advice.


Whether you’re worried about a feverish toddler, or battling to get a determined pre-schooler to eat her veggies - we have the expert to answer your questions. Teething, temperatures, eating and sleeping - the Paediatrician is in the house.

Stick to the facts
Parenting is rewarding, but it's also a challenge. And sometimes it's difficult to know what to do, especially when friends and relatives have conflicting advice for each stage of your baby's development. Luckily, there are experts who can give you practical and professional advice.

Such as :  an 18-month-old burnt by hot milk and her wounds aren't healing, toddler twins who are bad eaters and not gaining weight, and the tiny 5-month-old baby with bronchopneumonia – these are serious questions posted by concerned parents.

And it's not just about food and illness, what about the single mom struggling with a terrified and clingy toddler, these twins who don't seem to be talking properly, or the daunting business of potty training?  With many years of practice and treatment experience behind him, the Paediatrician answers them all.
