Winter Car Seat Safety Tips from the AAP

Winter is a tricky time for car seats. As a general rule, bulky clothing, including winter coats and snowsuits, should not be worn underneath the harness of a car seat.

In a car crash, fluffy padding immediately flattens out from the force, leaving extra space under the harness. A child can then slip through the straps and be thrown from the seat.

These tips from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) will help parents strike that perfect balance between keeping little ones warm as well as safely buckled in their car seats.

Healthy Children

November is #DiabetesAwarenessMonth. Both forms of #diabetes can occur at any age. Developing good diabetes management habits when your child is young can set them up for a healthy future as they become more independent.

Quick reminder to our families: Only children over 12 months should be given honey.

ALERT! Several babies in Texas have become ill with infant botulism after using honey pacifiers. Because honey can contain germs that cause infant botulism, never give honey or products made with honey to children younger than 1 year. https://go.usa.gov/xPGmf

It’s U.S. Antibiotic Awareness Week! Antibiotics save lives and are critical tools for treating infections, like those that can lead to sepsis. When antibiotics aren’t needed – like for a cold – they won’t help you, and the side effects could still hurt you. Serious side effects can include Clostridioides difficile, or C. difficile, infection, which can cause deadly diarrhea. Talk to your healthcare provider about the best way to treat your or your loved ones’ illness.

My child is receiving special education in school. What role should his pediatrician play?

The pediatrician's office often is the first stop for families seeking help with school issues. Navigating the special education system, understanding your rights and collaborating with school officials to come up with a plan can be confusing and intimidating.

Your pediatrician play a big role in advocating for your child throughout his or her education. Developmental-behavioral pediatricians, for example, advocate for their patients with developmental and behavioral problems by working closely with schools, preschools, and other agencies involved with developmental care and education. When all parties work together―as a team―in sharing information and expertise, your child will receive optimal health care and educational services.

Car Safety Technology: Designed to Keep Teen Drivers Safe

Built-in Car Safety Technology - Designed to Keep Teen Drivers Safe
Many newer-model vehicles have built-in driver assistance safety features available, including:

Electronic stability control (ESC). When a vehicle begins skidding on curvy or slippery roads, this computerized technology automatically applies the brakes to help drivers regain control of the steering. This technology is widely considered the most important vehicle safety advance since the introduction of seat belts and cuts the risk of a fatal single-vehicle crash by 50%. ESC has been required in most vehicles since 2012. Have an earlier model? Check for ESC availability here.

Rear vision cameras. As of May 1, 2018, all but the heaviest new vehicles sold in the United States must have rear vision cameras to help drivers back up safely. The law came about after pediatrician Greg Gulbransen, whose son died after a vehicle backed over him, helped promote awareness about the dangerous blind spot directly behind most vehicles.

Automatic braking. These systems use lasers, radar, or even video to gauge if the speed of the vehicle is greater than the speed of objects in front of it. If there's a big speed difference, signaling a potential crash, the system automatically slows or stops the vehicle.

Blind spot threat detection. This technology alerts drivers when vehicles are near—approaching in the next lane, for example—but not yet visible, making lane changes safer.

Lane-maintenance alerts. Using video, laser or infrared sensors, a lane departure warning system alerts the driver if the vehicle drifts over the lane mark.

Teen-specific driver safety technology. Automakers may soon offer built-in advanced driver assistance technology that can be tailored to new drivers. Some vehicles already have smart key fobs and other features that limit speed and block certain electronic distractions. Also, some insurance companies provide families with in-vehicle monitoring and feedback devices for new teen drivers.

healthychildren.org ​​When it comes to driving, teens and technology have a dangerous track record. The car safety technologies―listed in this article―are available in more and more cars and are helping keep young drivers safer.

Get a Flu Vaccine

The best way to prevent flu and its potentially serious complications is getting a flu vaccine.

Fall brings cooler temperatures, colorful leaves, and football games. It also means another flu season is upon us. Last year’s was rough. The CDC classified 2017-2018 a high severity season with high levels of outpatient clinic and emergency department visits for influenza-like illness, high influenza-related hospitalization rates, and widespread influenza activity across the United States for an extended period. The CDC estimates the flu caused between 140,000 and 710,000 hospitalizations and between 12,000 and 56,000 deaths annually in the U.S. since 2010. While estimates for last season won’t be available until later in the fall, it’s likely that last season was record-breaking across both of these key indicators used to track severity. It’s not possible to predict how severe the upcoming season will be, but we know that the best way to prevent flu and its potentially serious complications is a flu vaccine.

Helping Children Handle Stress

Many parents believe that their school-age children are unaware of the stresses around them and are somehow immune to them. After all, their children not only have all their basic needs met, but perhaps they also have a roomful of toys, friends to share them with, plenty of playtime, and a full schedule of extracurricular activities.

Yet children are very sensitive to the changes around them, especially to the feelings and reactions of their parents, even if those feelings are not communicated directly in words. If a parent loses a job, children will have to adjust to their family's financial crisis; they must deal not only with the obvious family budgetary changes but also with the changes in their parents' emotional states. Children may have to cope with a bully on the playground, a move to a new neighborhood, a parent's serious illness or the disappointment of a poor sports performance. They might feel a constant, nagging pressure to dress the "right" way, or to achieve the high grades that can put them on the fast track toward the "right" college.

healthychildren.org Demands or stresses are a part of children's daily existence. Pressures may come from a number of sources - from within the child herself, as well as from parents, teachers, peers and the larger society in which the child lives.

We are having a FLU CLINIC for all established patients that are up to date on their well check exams.
One day only, October 9 from 5:15pm. Call to schedule: 703-450-8660 (option 2).

Pregnancy & Whooping Cough

Pregnant? Get Tdap in your third trimester.
Only you can give your baby protection against whooping cough before your little one is even born. Talk to your doctor or midwife about getting the whooping cough vaccine (called Tdap) during your third trimester.
Whooping cough is a serious disease that can be deadly for babies. Unfortunately, babies don’t get vaccinated and start building protection against whooping cough until they are two months old. Avoid this gap in protection by getting the whooping cough vaccine during the third trimester of your pregnancy. By doing so, you pass antibodies to your baby before birth. These antibodies help protect your baby in the first few months of life.

How long should my child ride rear-facing?

UPDATED recommendations from The AAP...
Question - How long should my child ride rear-facing?
Answer - Rear facing is not just for babies! The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has long recommended that―infants ride in rear-facing car seats, and in 2018 the AAP updated that recommendation to encourage rear facing for as long as possible, until a child reaches the highest weight or height allowed by the manufacturer. Most convertible car safety seats have limits that will permit children to ride rear-facing past the second birthday.
