COMMON CHILDHOOD SICKNESSES

As your child's immune system develops and they interact with the environment around them, they from time to time will get sick. Taking your child’s temperature is important when an illness begins, and having a good thermometer is essential.

Childhood can bring a variety of illnesses, particularly when they start attending school. Here is a list of common sicknesses and infections we see in children. If you think your child may have symptoms of an ailment listed below, please call us to schedule an appointment. If your child has been exposed to an infectious illness, or if you have a family history of any of these conditions, feel free to contact us, and we can tell you what symptoms and warning signs to look out for.

 
 

YOUR CHILD'S GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT

We know that your child's growth and development is as important to you as it is to us. As your child gets bigger and smarter we'll keep track of the progress

  • 0-5 Years: Babies and toddlers grow (sometimes too) quickly! We know that parents have a lot of questions along the way, about what is "normal", or what may be outside the range of typical development. Our Developmental Milestones Chart lists signs to watch for at specific ages.

  • Grade School: As your child develops and begins to interact with other children more and more, it's important to foster a sense of confidence and self-esteem. You don't have to navigate these years alone. If you are concerned about your child's self esteem, shyness, temperament, or disobedience, please bring it to our attention. We are here to help, and can discuss the best strategies for you to use for your child.

  • Teen Years: The importance of self-esteem continues into adolescence. We know it can be tricky to navigate those teen years! We can help you approach your child about challenging or uncomfortable subjects, and can give you guidance on how to keep your teen healthy, mentally and physically. Even though they may not be little anymore, well visits can help keep your teen's health on track.

 

 

NEW MOMMY TIPS: BABY SLEEP

  • Gentle Movement: slight rocking and/or swaying can relax your baby

  • Soft Sounds: quiet singing, reading, nature sounds and shushing can all help replicate womb sounds to soothe your baby to sleep

  • Pitch Black Room: keep your baby's room extremely dark. Even slight amounts of light can disrupt sleep, impacting the quality of rest your baby receives as well as its duration

  • Sucking: whether it is breast, bottle, finger or pacifier, sucking can help your baby wind down for the night

  • Consistency: once you develop a routine that works — stick with it! Your baby will learn to respond and be soothed by the repetitive pattern

BABY NUTRITION

As a general guideline, newborn babies usually feed every 2-4 hours. A healthy baby does not need supplemental water; formula can be made with sterilized water in the beginning. Juice has no nutritional value during infancy—it can be used as an occasional treat (max 4 oz.) after ~6 months of age.

Breastfeeding: Breast milk will usually come in after 2-4 days. Babies usually nurse for 10-20 minutes on each breast.

Bottle-feeding: Bottle-fed newborn babies usually drink 1-3 ounces every 2-4 hours.
