Being a parent is hard work! We have collected information about common parenting questions and concerns to provide tips from trusted medical professionals. Please review our list of topics below to find some quick perspective on your parenting dilemmas.
Make sure your child care provider or baby sitter has immediate access to critical information in case of an emergency: Make a copy of your child's insurance card, and on the back attach a typed list of emergency phone numbers where you can be reached, as well as the number for your local poison control center. You may also want to note any allergies or medical conditions your child may have. Have this two-sided emergency card laminated at your local copy center, place it in a pocket of your child's diaper bag or backpack, and remember to tell the sitter where it can be found.
