Being a parent is HARD work, I won’t lie. All of us parents know that. But, we also know it is so worth every hard moment! Those little ones are just so precious we want to ensure they are safe and free from any harm. Knowing my child is sick and hurt is terrible and I will do anything and everything in my power to get them help or keep them healthy.
My Child Is Sick And Hurt, What Should I Do? What would you do? What would you do if you had no access to a doctor or their advice? I found a new app called KidAches™ . It is a pediatric symptom checker, a mobile app device service of The Children’s Hospital at Saint Peter’s University Hospital, and is designed especially for these concerns.
I downloaded this app and have been checking it out. I must say it is definitely something I will be keeping on my iPhone. It is full of information on what you can do if your child gets hurt or becomes ill. In our case, my oldest son ALWAYS gets nosebleeds, so I wanted to know what to do in case of a nosebleed. Great tips and advice!
From things like: what should you do if your child develops a fever, cough, vomiting, rash, sore throat, or head injury to behavioral issues, from toilet training to teaching responsibility to teenagers. These are questions that all parents have. Health problems and parenting issues can arise anytime – evenings, weekends, when you’re at work or traveling, or when your doctor’s office is closed. This app helps address those situations and concerns.
KidAches gives you access to:
● Symptom Checker
● Medical Definitions
● Parent Advice
● Pediatric Dosage Tables
● Medications and Allergy Lists
I found all the information in the KidAches™ app to be so useful. The app is very easy to navigate and I can find what I am looking for quite easily. I love the medical definitions, parental advice, and dosage table, and the medications and allergy lists are SO nice to have on hand.
Download KidAches App For Free!
KidAches is free and is available on Android and Apple devices. You can find it in the Apple App Store and on Google Play. If you are a parent, grandparent, or caregiver I highly recommend downloading this free app. It is definitely something you will want on your phone or tablet at all times for those ‘just in case‘ scenarios.

I just downloaded this to my phone AND my husband’s. I have a bit of medical background so I don’t mind acting on instinct, but my husband gets all nervous when something happens so he especially will appreciate having it handy. Such good info, thanks!

Very comprehensive and useful. I’d probably still want to take to the doc though in most cases.

This sounds like a really good app, but I am so smart phone illiterate that my kid would be in serious trouble before I could figure it out.
Sounds like a very useful app. It is nice to have reputable information out there to consult in those instances when one is unsure. this is certainly an app that I would want.
Wow, sounds like a pretty comprehensive app. I’m impressed that it has everything from symptom checks to advice like toilet training to dosage tables.
