We’d like to introduce you to baby Olivia in our NICU. Olivia was born four weeks ago weighing just 1 pound, 12 ounces. We snapped this picture today as Olivia was receiving some valuable skin-to-skin time with her mom. Kangaroo Care has many health benefits for babies, including higher blood oxygen levels, improved sleep, improved breastfeeding and improved weight gain. Mom says, “Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin is more than just a hospital to my family. I want to thank the NICU for giving my baby the ability to live.”

Kids are naturally curious about their poop. And as parents, we should be too. Why? Because poop is a significant indicator of health, providing insight into obesity, food allergies and diseases. And have you heard about poop transplants? Yep, that’s really happening. Dr. Li explains it all: http://bit.ly/1DybgrO

here are a lot of ailments we can treat as doctors these days. Whether it’s common colds or bumps and bruises, we know how to fix it. But there are other things you can’t just take medicine for or rub something on. One of those is grief, and dealing with the loss of a loved one. Dr. Schwake explains and provides tips for parents on our blog:

Parents are asking a lot of questions about measles. One common question our pediatricians are hearing is whether or not a child should have their MMR booster shot before that child’s 4-year-old visit, which is when that second shot is typically given. Watch Dr. Kane explain:

The food could be better (and lets face it, no hospital is a fancy restaurant) but the care that they have given is good.

we have been to this hospital for operation's on my grandson's heart 3 times before he was 6 mos old, and the 4th this past may, all have been open heart operation's lasting hours on the heart lung machine ! and he could not have had better care! all involved were kind, and took care of him like he was there own ! if we had question's they were addressed right away ! we went there knowing we were in the right place! doc's and nurses were all 1st class ! and in the future we will gladly place our lit man in there care if the need arises ! we drive 350 miles to get the best care around. some may be closer but none are better ! being at his side 24/7 we know he was not only safe but the staff was sanitary with each trip to his bedside !!! the herma heart center is in house and also and A+ addition ! THANK YOU so much for all your care and love given to our child !!

Childrens has been there time and time again for our young son in times of emergency. The nurses and doctors went above and beyond to look after our son and ensure we were comfortable in trying times. I can't speak highly enough to their professionalism, capabilities, and compassion. Yes, parking can be a challenge but you can't beat their expertise in child care. I feel unbelievably fortunate to have such a wonderful, expert organization in our community.

When visiting a doctor because my four year old daughter got a bead stuck up her nose, both the nurse and the doctor were sure to take this opportunity to ensure she was doing well overall. I explained that she has had some major bloody noses. After a quick discussion they sent us to immediately get a blood test. It turns out that our daughter has a blood disorder that prevents clotting. We are soooo thankful that the staff looked beyond the immediate concern. This knowledge will help to ensure that future issues are handled safely and properly. This knowledge can save our daughters life if she has a bad injury. A big hug and high-five to the staff!
