A Healthy Little Note: Issue #35
The American Academy of Pediatrics just came out (March 2019) with updated guidelines on what works and what doesn't when it comes to preventing food allergies.
How far have we come? Well, in 2000, the AAP recommended delaying cow's milk until children were 1 years old, eggs until 2 years old, and peanuts, tree nuts, and fish until 3 years old. Then, in 2008 the AAP found there was no evidence in delaying introduction to these foods to prevent food allergies. BUT, the report did not give specific guidance as to when these foods should be introduced.
So, what's the scoop now? Find out in my latest post. I have shortly summarized the original document from the American Academy of Pediatrics.

Also, coming up on April 10th, I'll be giving a Newborn Sleep talk at Hatch Collection in Brentwood from 5-6pm. RSVP here.
Come if you're expecting or recently have had a baby. You'll learn lots about newborn sleep, why it's so different, and more important what you can do to help them!
Better yet, you'll meet a really great community of families!
