Exposed to the Flu?

The incubation period is generally 1 to 2 days after exposure. Meaning once exposed, you would develop symptoms within 1 to 2 days. Young children may be contagious 24 hours before symptoms begin and for as long as 10 days after. What are the main symptoms? The most common are headache, fever, sore throat, cough, chills and body aches. Patients this year have reported headache as their first symptom.
   

Carseats and Coats

It's a natural parental instinct to want to keep your child warm and bundled while traveling. However, it is important NOT to put your child's coat on before buckling them in the carseat. The bulky padding in your child's coat can compress with the force of a crash, which would allow your child to move within the carseat harness, thus increasing risk for severe injury.

New Year's Resolutions

It's a New Year! Many of us are making resolutions. It's a great time to sit down with your child and encourage them to make a few of their own. Talk with your child about what's important and brainstorm on what to tackle. For example, is your child spending too much time indoors in front of the television or on the computer?    

ASQ and MCHAT Developmental Screening

A few weeks before your appointment for ages 4 mo, 9 mo, 12 mo, 24 and 36 mo checkups, you should receive an email or phone call regarding the ASQ screening. At the 18 month well visit, a similar form, the MCHAT—a specific screener for Autism—will be given to you at your appointment.
