Sofia loves “her Dr. Mitchell”❤️
My children, Jack and Kaitlyn, met their new pediatrician yesterday!

Dr. Isha Mannering is 👍👍.

Jack is 4'2". One foot shorter than me at 8.

I'm so grateful that Dr. Mannering and I met. We are in a local DFW doctor group together, and the group is full of amazing women physicians. That's how I met my Internist, Dr. Boram Kim Park. It is great to have another advocate for my children who also understands and could clearly see our shared hypermobility syndrome. Preventative medicine is my passion for many reasons and Dr. Mannering shares in this. She thought of getting them started with pediatric cardiology, rheumatology, and ophthalmology. All areas of care that are affected by hypermobility syndrome. The goal is quality of life and longevity, and I pray that my journey and my advocacy will have lifelong benefits for the two people that I love more than life itself. I feel so full of gratitude at this point in my journey.

Do you guys offer pediatrician on call? I took my daughter in yesterday and she seems to have an allergic reaction.
I'd like to share a rather unusual, free, parenting education resource...bumper stickers! Advancing Parenting, a Camarillo CA nonprofit, produces parenting tips bumper stickers and makes them available at no cost to businesses, organizations, clinics, schools, and individuals. There are fifty-one in a set and each bumper sticker communicates a parenting behavior or practice generally recognized as supporting the healthy development of children. Just one will be read thousands of times!

Bumper stickers are a unique and powerful way to educate everyone about parenting. At stoplights drivers and passengers point, smile, and nod. Conversations begin and often a phone is used to take a photo of the sticker right at the stoplight. Presumably, they are being shared on social media. It's wonderful to see!

Sets of the stickers can be put in holders and placed on counters and tables so folks can select one or more for their cars. Visit www.advancingparenting.org to order this free resource. Use a computer...our website is not optimized for phones. Please share.
Hello! Wondering if you have any advice the parents of the "only child" going through isolation. My daughter is almost 3yo and I know she is supposed to be transitioning out of parallel play into more social/interactive play. Should we be concerned with developmental delays??
Thanks 😊

Here’s a fun, educational post from Music Together Dallas to share with your patients’ parent’s. https://www.musictogether.com/about/research/research-based-program/importance-of-music-in-early-childhood

Let us know if you want more weekly blog posts to share 😝
Thank you for a fun night at the game! Needless to say, Cody enjoyed herself 😂
So thankful for our pediatrician Dr. Kravitz! During our 18 month visit with her she recommended the book “making the terrible twos terrific” by John Rosemond, particularly the potty training sections, and we are so grateful she did! We started potty training immediately and our son was completely potty trained after about one month of following the program (including at naps and through the night)! We’re so impressed with Dr. Kravitz and all of her suggestions/ recommendations for our kids!

Study: SCD Children With Omicron Infection at Risk of Severe Symptoms

Children with sickle cell are at high risk of severe disease from COVID according to a French study, which showed an intensive care admission rate of 85% for sickle cell children. Of the 13 children this represented in the study who were admitted to the ICU, only 2 were vaccinated, and only 1 had 2 doses of vaccine. While we recommend COVID vaccine for all children 6 months and up, those with certain conditions, such as sickle cell disease, are in even more dire need of vaccination.--Dr. Kravitz

Study: SCD Children With Omicron Infection at Risk of Severe Symptoms Children with sickle cell disease (SCD) are at a high risk of developing severe symptoms after infection with the SARS-CoV-2 Omicron variant, one of the most recent variants of the virus that causes COVID-19, according to a new French study. In fact, more than 85% of children infected with...

I participated in Wheel To Survive 2 days ago to support research to find a cure for ovarian cancer. I ride to honor my friend, survivor and cofounder Julie Gencov Shrell and now also in support for the recovery of the grandmother of 2 of my precious patients! I would be honored if anyone would like to donate to Be The Difference or join my team to ride next year. My page is https://give.bethedifferencefoundation.org/fundraiser/4011127.

We have been getting a lot of questions about whether children ages 6 months - 5 years should get the COVID vaccine. In conjunction with the American Academy of Pediatrics we do recommend the vaccine. For a nice summary of why check out this graphic from Your Local Epidemiologist

COVID vaccines are now available for ages 6 months and up! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻🎉

Today, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration advisory committee (VRBAC) unanimously voted for the FDA to grant an emergency use authorization (EUA) for the Pfizer BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine for children 6 months to 4 years old and the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine for children 6 months to 5 years old.

Forest Lane Pediatrics is now awaiting FDA emergency use authorization, shipment of age-specific vaccine vials from the State and an official recommendation by the CDC in order to begin offering COVID-19 vaccines to this age group at our three locations.

We will provide an update when we are able to start scheduling appointments for COVID vaccines to children ages 6 months to under 5 years. We are optimistic that we may be able to start vaccinating down to 6 months old within the next 7 to 10 days.
