'Always listen closely to mothers," wise pediatricians tell their less-experienced colleagues. I didn't follow that dictum recently when my patient's mother came into our office with a concern that her 1-year-old daughter's head was leaning more to the left side. I quickly reviewed her chart, finding no significant past medical history. The mother first noticed her daughter's head tilting to the left when she started walking about a month ago. It didn't occur all the time, the mother said, but just over the previous week, it had become worse.

To loud cheers and whistles from rescue workers, 18-month-old Jessica McClure was pulled alive and conscious last night from 22 feet down in the dry well that had held her captive for 58 hours. She was rushed to Midland Memorial Hospital, where she was in stable condition last night. At a news conference at the hospital, local paramedic Bill Queen said that Jessica's right foot, which had been immobilized in the narrow crevice, "has had a lack of blood" and that gangrene was possible.

The juggling act known as the Working Mom is hard enough for most of us. When you have a curious, energetic toddler, it's a challenge. When you have to wake up at 3:30 a.m. for work — an hour when you should be enjoying REM sleep — it starts to get a bit crazy. And when that job is cohost of Fox29's Good Day Philadelphia, a job under klieg lights that demands smart lifestyle reports, and perkiness, witty banter, and perkiness, and every strand of hair just so (did we mention perkiness?

The remorseful father told police he beat and shook his 3-year-old son to death on Oct. 11 to teach him a lesson. "I was trying to teach him not to lie," said Reginald Taylor, 34, in a statement to Homicide Detective Dennis Graeber, read yesterday during a preliminary hearing. "I knew how it was when I grew up, and I didn't want Steve to be like me," Taylor told Graeber. "I used to lie all the time. I was trying to instill in him my trust. That's basically why I beat him, so he could come to me and tell me the truth without being beaten.

When shots rang out on Ann Street near Amber, in Kensington, yesterday afternoon, some neighbors thought that they were hearing fireworks. But when they heard a helicopter and saw police vans swarm the corner, they knew it was something worse. The shooting left three people hospitalized - including a 2-year-old girl, who was hit in the right arm by a stay bullet while she splashed in a backyard pool. Neighbors said that a white car stopped on Amber Street about 5:55 p.m., and three men got out and began shooting down the street toward the victims.

Adapted from a recent online discussion. Question: Lately, my toddler son has shown a very strong preference for my husband. This affects everything from our morning routine (he wants Dada to get him dressed) to meals (he wants to play with my husband, not me, so I am always stuck cooking, lest we endure an hour-long temper tantrum) to playtime. If I do try to spend time with my son while my husband is around, my son immediately starts crying for my husband. This is (I hope) a normal part of child development, but it is still hard on me. I miss spending one-on-one time with my son, and it seems the only way this can happen is when my husband is not there.

SCUM IS the mild word for the front of the Daily News. I live in New Jersey right near Haddon Township. I knew David Creato killed his son Brendan when it was first reported. But to find out that his 17-year-old girlfriend didn't like kids - so-o-o-o-o he kills his son for her? Just tell the mother he doesn't want to bother with his son anymore, but he didn't have to kill him. That romance wouldn't have lasted, and he would be back with his son again. Now the girlfriend can find another boyfriend, because Creato ain't never gonna see the light of day again!

The parents of a Washington state toddler who died after being pinned beneath a toppled Ikea dresser have filed a wrongful-death lawsuit against the furniture giant, claiming Ikea sold the dresser despite knowing it was unstable. Filed in Philadelphia Common Pleas Court, the lawsuit by the parents of 2-year-old Camden Ellis of Bothell is the second in less than a year against Ikea stemming from a fatal tip-over of a Malm dresser. A similar suit was filed by the mother of Curren Collas, a West Chester 2-year-old, who died in February 2014 when a dresser tipped onto him. Ikea cited the deaths of both boys when the company and the Consumer Product Safety Commission in July jointly announced a "repair program" involving 27 million dressers.

For nearly two months, since a 3-year-old boy's body was found in the woods in Haddon Township - without a word from authorities on how he died or got there - John Potter has tried to keep his 10-year-old daughter indoors. "Nobody goes out of the house now," said Potter, 51, who has lived for 16 years in the Westmont neighborhood. "It's permanent. Life has changed in the neighborhood. " The uneasy feelings among residents - and the rumors - have only grown since Oct. 13, when a K-9 unit led police to Brendan Link Creato's body in the woods near South Park Drive and Cooper Street around 9 a.m. That was three hours after his father had reported him missing from their apartment a half-mile away.

ONE MOMENT, 2-year-old David Alicea Jr. was by his mom's side as she was putting his sweater in the car before they were to get in and go out to eat. The next moment, the toddler rushed out into the street. "Do not cross the street," the mom, Josephine Rivera, 20, testified yesterday that she told her son. Rivera said she saw a white Infiniti moving fast down her block, on Mascher Street near Lehigh Avenue, in Fairhill. "I [moved] so the car could hit me, not him," Rivera testified forlornly of her only child.

THE FAMILY of the toddler found wandering in LOVE Park last week will have to wait a little longer to be permanently reunited with the boy. A Family Court judge continued the case of little Jeremiyah and his 4-year-old sister, Malaysia, until Oct. 29. In the meantime, their parents, Michael Jones and Angelique Roland, will be granted visitation rights twice a week in two-hour stints. "The court in these cases, in general, has a tendency to err on the side of caution," said Brian Jenkins, the executive director of Chosen 300, a Christian ministry that helped raise $12,000 for the family.

The automated call from Haddon Township police to residents Tuesday morning was ominous: A 3-year-old boy had disappeared from his home, still in pajamas, and authorities needed help finding him. The alert caused residents to search backyards, porches, cars, even inside large plastic Halloween pumpkins. "We all started looking, but instantly had that bad feeling from the beginning," said Brian Hueber, 44, a father of two boys who searched his garage, "because it doesn't make sense.
