Could something as simple as water be dangerous to little ones? The surprising answer is YES!
Did you catch some of the warmth and sunshine we’ve had in the past couple of weeks? Wisconsin may be home of the "Frozen Tundra," but eventually that ice melts and brings with it some gorgeous weather, perfect for being active outside (and maybe getting sweaty). As adults we know the im

From the unique perspective of being both a pediatrician and a mom, Dr. Paul reflects on the challenges of managing your own personal grief while helping your children as well.
I recently lost my father, whom I love so dearly and deeply. It has only been a few months, but I feel that I can offer something in this blog to families as a mother, as a pediatrician, and as a daughter. If you are placed in this situation, it is important to understand that you cannot be the

After numerous trips with my two children, I have to say I um underwhelmed. Makes me want to move back to St.Louis where my two chronically ill children receive more proactive care and I have three children's hospitals to choose specialists from. I gave the second star for the food. It is soo much better than the food I have encountered at other children's hospitals. They also don't hassle you about using donated breast milk to supplement your own supply which earned them the third star.

God bless this hospital and its entire staff. If you are a parent, you know the fear of having a sick child hospitalized. It takes a lot to feel comfort in such situations. But the doctors, nurses, respiratory therapists, kitchen staff, clerical, volunteers, everyone there goes out if their way to bring comfort to both patient and child. They allowed both my husband and me to sleep in the room with our child during the entire week long stay. They included us in the decisions with every step of treatment. We were treated with respect, compassion and most importantly good care. I feel they saved our Childs life and for that we will always be eternally grateful!
