Visit with a Doctor – Day or Night – Without Leaving Your Home with the Doctor On Demand App {Target Giveaway, too!}

This post was brought to you by Doctor On Demand.  All thoughts and opinions are mine.

Doctor on Demand logoBaby Brother is our third child, but yet, we still find oursevles questioning whether or not we need to take him to the doctor when he is sick.  I remember as first time parents with the Captain, everything was a huge question mark.  Fever?  What did the doctor say about how high is too high and for what age?  How many poops is he supposed to have in one day?  What is this rash?  Is this normal?  On and on and on and on…..we were a bit over concerned, first time parents, I'm sure, but there were times when we should have taken him in to see the doctor, too.  Had we taken him or D in every time we thought we might need to, we would be swimming in medical bills.  How cool would it have been to have a doctor to call, day or night, when we had a question or needed some medical advice?

Well…finally this exists!  Doctor On Demand is an app available on iTunes and Google Play that connects you to a US licensed, board certified physician ANY TIME, day or night.  No need to wait until the doctor's office opens, then wait on hold for an appointment, and then drag your sick kid(s) to a germy waiting room when you don't need to.  Doctor On Demand is only $40 (the cost of many copays and much cheaper than what we pay for a sick visit!)  All doctors have years of experience, are highly educated, and background checked.  You get to video or voice chat for up to 15 minutes.  

When should you call Doctor On Demand?  Use DOD for:

  • a cold, cough, flu, or allergies
  • rashes
  • pink eye
  • asthma
  • bladder infections
  • pediatric questions
  • most cases that are not life threatening
  • prescription refills
  • referral to a specialist

When you should NOT use Doctor On Demand:

  • ANY problem that IS life threatening
  • chest pain/pressure
  • seizures
  • serious head, neck, or back injury
  • broken bones

 

Doctor on Demand

We were given the opportunity to try Doctor On Demand and I'm glad we did.  Baby Brother has had eczema for a long time, but the other night, his flare up was BAD.  His face was bright red, he had raised spots on his arm, and it was almost bedtime.  I entered his symptoms and was quickly connected with a doctor.  (I am not sharing his name for privacy reasons.)  

Doctor on Demand app

I showed him Baby Brother's eczema and he quickly said it was just eczema and said to continue with what his pediatrician had recommended, but that he would call in a prescription for a different medicine to see if that would help.  I got the phone number for our pharmacy, and he told me some other tips like limit the number of baths and stay away from scented stuff.  He also said to follow up with our pediatrician if it hadn't cleared up in a few days.

Doctor on Demand

I was very impressed with our experience and will be calling Doctor On Demand again if the need arises.  It is such a simple, money saving way to get the professional medical advice I need without having to spend money and time driving to the doctor.

The PlasmaBike is the Perfect Gift for Toddlers! {Santa’s Little Helper Giveaway}

This PlasmaBike post was brought to you by PlaSmart.  All opinions are mine.

santaslittlehelper

We all know that everyone could use a little help around the Holidays, so it's time for the Santa's Little Helper Giveaway Hop, hosted by Viva Veltoro and So Easy Being GreenI've teamed up with over 50 other bloggers to give away prizes that anyone would want to see under the tree! You might find the perfect gift for a little one on your list – or even for yourself, so hop around to all the blogs, including the GRAND PRIZE, on the linky at the bottom of this post!

************************************************************

The colder Fall days are here and it's torture for two rambunctious boys (and their parents!) on some days.  Luckily, we live in Texas, so the days are few and far between that we simply cannot go outside, but it's nice to have options to burn off energy in our own house, too!

When Captain Fussybuckets turned 3, we received a PlasmaCar that has been used SO much by both boys, friends, cousins, and even adults…over the past two years.  It has been a lifesaver and so much fun for everyone.  I knew that the PlasmaBike would be a great choice for D at this age, and with our love for the PlasmaCar, I had great expectations and they were met!  The PlasmaBike is not exactly like the PlasmaCar, but that's what makes it awesome.

The PlasmaBike is a balance bike without pedals that has wide wheels and limited steering range to enhance balance.  You do have to use a bit more energy and skill on the PlasmaBike, but again, that's good for us!  The PlasmaBike helps kids ages 18 months and up develop gross motor skills, balance, coordination, and provides a smooth transition to regular 2 wheel bikes.  The wheels rotate inside of the frame..it's actually pretty cool to watch the boys ride!
