Infant Health and Immunizations
Being a new parent is exciting and can even be a little scary at times. It is so important for your child to receive all of his/her immunizations on time and to have yearly check ups, even when nothing is wrong! There are many, many children's health topics today and as a parent you can never be too informed about issues like ADHD, childhood obesity, chronic ear infections, asthma, sleep problems, breastfeeding, among many others! The website of the American Academy of Pediatrics provides very good information about all of these topics and more. Of course, your pediatrician is the best source of health information for your infant but here are a few other links that you might find helpful.
