On February 25, 2015 the American Board of Pediatrics published their "long-awaited" response to the growing physician outcry against the "Maintenance of Certification" scheme. I started writing a ...

Peanut allergy prevention
For years pediatricians told parents to avoid peanuts for the first years of life to help prevent peanut allergies.  It appears we were wrong. Studies for the past several years have supported giving infants peanut products as early as 4 months of age as lo...

Common constipation treatment studies worrying you?
Headlines recently have announced that a common treatment used for constipation is being studied for safety in children. Several parents have asked me about it, and I know many more are probably worried but just haven't asked yet, so I thought I'd share my ...

I hear from worried parents often that their kids won't eat. There are many reasons for this. Usually as long as a child is hydrated, gaining weight appropriately, and getting a variety of nutrients, I am not worried. Some reasons kids don't eat: They're re...

Do Your Vaccines Contain Mercury?
We are often asked if our vaccines contain mercury. Some parents even want to see the package insert to check. Note: even if they do contain mercury, it usually doesn't say "mercury", so I suspect some of these parents wouldn't notice. Why wouldn't they not...

No co pay for well visits! But then there's the small print...
It is recommended that at least once a year children be seen for a well visit. It is important that your child's doctor see him regularly when well and not just when sick so we have time to get to know him better and keep up with how he's doing. It might se...

Why does the school nurse say the vaccines don't count?
Every once in awhile we see a child who needs vaccines because previous doses don't count. This can be due to many things, especially if they were on alternate vaccine schedules and the dosing wasn't spread out correctly, or if they got the vaccines in a st...
