This month Suyog Kamatkar, Jason Misurac, and Janet Kowalski are our guest physicians, discussing issues of interest to parents. In Health News, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has updated and re-issued their 1992 statement on Back To Sleep and SIDS prevention. Dr. Misurac discusses the new statement and safe sleep practices. Dr. Kamatkar then discusses ADHD diagnosis and treatment in detail.
In parenting tips, Dr. Kowalski shares how to find a babysitter, and then goes on to discuss treatment of childhood fever, dispelling some myths and sharing the truth. Finally, we have the answer to last month's medical trivia question - Does adding cereal to a baby's bottle help him or her sleep through the night sooner?
