Stop giving palm oil to induce vomiting, it can kill your child - Doctor

 Image result for palm oil to induce vomiting in nigeria

Below is what a pediatrician wrote to Nigerian parents fond of rushing to give palm oil as first aid whenever a child ingests poisonous substances. Do you know that giving ordinary water or milk is better than palm oil? Read below...
I received a call on Thursday from an ATP member.....that's not unusual......"We are being referred to LUTH from General Hospital....a little boy".....As usual my response "Yes bring the child...straight to our CHER.....I am not in CHER but let me know when you get there" I usually will try and pass through to know what is going on!
Thursday was extremely busy....our final year medical students were doing their clinical exams.....We did not finish until 6pm! Tired and worn out....then had to briefly attend the wake-keeping ceremony of one of my friends and colleague Paediatrician's mother.....I completely forgot about the child till today.
When I remembered, I called to know how far.....I knew she did not end up in LUTH because

The best way to prevent teen pregnancy is to educate them on the use of condoms.Telling the youth to abstain is a failed strategy, as they will have it anyway - Church Leader argued

A counselor and elder of the church of Pentecost, New Achimota District in Ghana, Mr Nii Armah Hammond, has admonished stakeholders to allow teenagers who can’t control their libido to be allowed to practice safe s*x.

The respectable church leader, was speaking on Ahotor fm during a program aimed at educating the youth.

Hammond believes that the best means of preventing teenage pregnancy and its associated complications is through protected s*x. As he puts it, the stigma associated with teenage pregnancy affect the family concern long after the act and in most cases making the products of such pregnancy liabilities for the nation.

Telling the youth to abstain is a failed strategy, as they will have it anyway, he argued, so the best way to prevent teen pregnancy is to educate them on the use of condoms.

*Hmmm, do you agree? 
For me, I can't imagine myself teaching my child how to practice safe sex or how to wear a condom. I know I taught the girls how to wear sanitary pads, demonstrated with underpants and some pads, also taught how to properly dispose used pads. I did that happily and

Hello Eya, 
I came across your blog while looking for remedy for my daughter's dark spots on her legs. She is 6 years and has had these spots since barely 1 year of age. 
She reacts to all sorts of bites, scratches her skin resulting in sores which end up with black scars.
She wears pantyhose 24 /7 now even to school!. I have been to dermatologists to no avail.
Please someone help me. What else can I do to get rid of these spots??
Thank you so much.
A worried mother,

Nigerian husband ran away from home after their 3 kids tested positive to Sickle Cell anemia. Here's her story!

 This is exclusively from Laila's blog. the heartbroken lady called her on phone with the story you are going to read below.
 Good Evening please hide my Identity to avoid been ridiculed. I want to appreciate you for your love and care you have showed me now. 
 I am in deep pain and don't even know who to talk to about this to avoid been ridiculed but I know God is the God of all flesh he alone can do this,  but I am as well loosing my mind. 
I got married years back like 10years ago which produced 3 lovely destinies, vivacious,
and God's images in my life ages 8,6 and 3. 
We had a genotype text, I and DH (darling husband) before wedding and it was a good to go result till after our second child. 
The children were falling sick often and on, so we decided to go to the hospital for test and there two them were tested SS. It was very disheartening moment of our lives,  we did our own test I and DH this time it was As+As=SS which was a mistake from the first laboratory before marriage.   
We had wanted to sue the laboratory but will that correct the lives of our children, we then faced God and have been praying for God's healing using Jeremiah 30:17, Psalm 107:20, Exodus 23:25 giving them anointing oil and communion, after some times the crises stopped for almost a year,   
We went to the same laboratory for test and they were AA, we went to church and shared our testimony. I later conceived my last child which now a girl,  I told

The reason most parents give young children phones is to keep in touch at all times. Some parents give phones to kids from when they are 8 years old, others wait until these kids are teenagers. For my family, we wait until Secondary School. In Primary School, you use mummy's phone for all communications with friends and classmates. For some families, the child has to get to Senior Secondary School before owning a phone, for some families, getting University Admission or any

A video posted in July showed a Texas woman deliver her own baby in the passenger seat of a car while her husband drove and recorded birth with a camera on their way to a Houston Birthing centre. This "car birth" baby is their third following 2 girls aged 2 and 1.
Lesia Pettijohn, 22, of Lake Jackson told her husband to record her giving birth once she realized the baby would arrive before they could make it to a Houston birthing center.
'I was probably freaking out way more than I should have. But I

Wow! Watch This Video: If all deliveries were this sweet, the world would be so over populated...

Baby couldn't wait to get to a hospital. Woman giving birth on the passenger seat while her husband drives and catches it all on camera. Incredible and sweet! If all child deliveries were like hers, no woman will panic and fast oh...
Nothing graphic, Neat Video: Just awesome.

Hello Aunty Eya, plese help me post on the blog. I am writing you this early because I need help with step parenting. My husband has a 16 year old daughter who just moved in with us last year just before Christmas. She is supposed to have left secondary school but it seems her mum  couldn't afford further education and could not register her for WAEC or NECO. Now, Hubby cares only about himself and, me seeing the type of man that my husband is, I stopped after two children so that in case push comes to shove, I'll be able to sponsor my two kids without having to crawl and beg.

So, both my boys are still in Primary school but when my step daughter moved in, I asked her to go back to school so she can be useful to herself instead of just cleaning and watching TV, I have a house help so her cleaning is basically her own wears and dishes. Tried to discuss with my husband about her Education but he doesn't seem too interested, I quietly told myself that I'll do the best I can to help her. With my civil servant salary, I managed to buy school supplies and got her Registered while hubby only managed to pay her School fees after many reminders from me. She started school

My First Daughter Won A Beauty Pageant At School, I'm Worried

Now I'm beginning to understand what patents go through when they have teenage children. I have always been outspoken about parents trying to like "chose" career paths for their kids and will always say " let them decide what they want to do" but now it's my turn to "let them" and it's a bit difficult.
This my first girl is the one I turn to when I can't decide on something. To me she is gifted in that area. Her friends and we  her family know and trust her judgement so well, to me she has never failed when it comes to judging her siblings, saying who is at fault or who is right and wrong. We so love that aspect of her. Intelligence in that area? God just dashed her.

Ok, I won't even be ashamed to say here that once, she observed that even though me and their dad were talking in their presence and acting normal, she called me aside and whispered that she is not a

Hello wives connection and Madame Eya, I started following the blog in 2014 and have benefitted immensely. Please advise me on how to go about this new drama from my wife. We have been married for 8 years and live in a 4 bedroom here in Lagos  with 2 kids. We are not rich but comfortable enough to thank God.
