Sun safety is important during summer and all year round. Here are tips on to protect babies and kids from the sun and how to choose and apply sunscreen.

"Keep babies younger than 6 months out of direct sunlight. Find shade under a tree, an umbrella, or the stroller canopy.

When possible, dress yourself and your children in cool, comfortable clothing that covers the body, such as lightweight cotton pants, long-sleeved shirts, and hats."

Screen time can be addictive for many kids and too much of it can have an impact on their sleep, school performance, social life, and mental health. Here’s a great guide on making sure that your children’s screen time is healthy, depending on their age group.

“Start leading by example early. Even before your child has a phone or tablet of her own, show her how they should be used. Don’t check your messages at the dinner table. Look at people when they’re talking to you — not at your phone. Remember that your children are always watching you and young children notice everything — that’s how they learn.”

Eid Mubarak to everyone who celebrates!
Continuing our posts for and , please check out this guide about autism spectrum disorder, how it’s diagnosed, the benefits of early identification, and what to keep in mind for kids with autism during COVID-19.

“The AAP recommends that all children be screened for ASD at their 18- and 24-month well-child checkups. Research shows that starting an intervention program as soon as possible can improve outcomes for many children with ASD.

In addition, children with ASD may have other medical problems that need further evaluation and treatment. These may include seizures, problems with sleep, gastrointestinal problems (feeding problems, abdominal pain, constipation, diarrhea), and behavioral health problems such as anxiety, ADHD, irritability, and aggression​.”

Since the pandemic, there have been significant shortages of infant formulas in some stores. And with the current recall of several formula products, there have been even more shortages recently. If you are in an urgent situation and struggling to find baby formula, here are tips to follow.

“If you can afford it, buy formula online until store shortages ease. Purchase from well-recognized distributors and pharmacies rather than individually sold or auction sites.

For most babies, it is OK to switch to any available formula, including store brands, unless your baby is on a specific extensively hydrolyzed one such as Alimentum or Nutramigen. If you are unsure, talk with your pediatrician.”

Check out this guide on child passenger safety for info on the proper way to buckle up your child (depending on their age, height, and weight) and how to install car seats and booster seats. Doing so can make a huge difference in keeping your kids safe in the vehicle!

"Infants and toddlers should be buckled in a rear-facing car seat with a harness, in the back seat, until they reach the maximum weight or height limit of their car seat. This offers the best possible protection.

Check the car seat manual and labels on the car seat for weight and height limits.

Never place a rear-facing car seat in the front seat. Front passenger air bags can injure or kill young children in a crash."

Halloween Health & Safety Tips

Halloween is around the corner! Here's how to keep your kids safe and healthy during the big day.

"Keep an eye on what your child has in their mouth at all times while on the trick-or-treat trail. Wait until children are home to sort and check treats. Though tampering is rare, it can happen. A responsible adult should closely examine all treats and throw away any spoiled, unwrapped, or suspicious items. Once your child is ready to enjoy treats at home, keep in mind that babies and toddlers should not have any hard candies, caramel apples, popcorn, gum, small candies (jelly beans, etc.), gummy candy, pumpkin seeds, or anything with whole nuts."

It All Starts with Sleep 08/29/2022

It All Starts with Sleep

Children with might have more challenges with sleep as it can be more difficult for them to wind down or because procrastination causes them to stay up late. Getting good sleep can take some effort but here are 5 tricks to make it easier!

"Have a consistent bedtime. Even (especially) if your child does not have a built-in sleep clock that causes them to feel tired at the right time of night, most people do better with a consistent bedtime and wake-up time. Unfortunately, this means every day, including weekends. Staying up late and sleeping in really late on weekends can completely disrupt that consistency. Yes, it allows them to catch up from the prior week, but it sets them up for trouble in the coming week. Sleeping in an hour or two on the weekends may be OK, but it shouldn't be more than that, especially if the child clearly has trouble falling asleep on time on Sunday night."

It All Starts with Sleep It starts with sleep and unfortunately, too many people with ADHD are chronically sleep deprived, so they rarely catch up.
