    Shopping for Safe Toys this Holiday Season

    Woodland Tree + Toys    
    It's that time of year again. Ahhh...the holiday season, a time for family, great food and shopping! We want to be sure your little one stays healthy and safe this holiday season so we’ve put together some tips and great resources to ease your shopping experience.

    When purchasing clothing, ensure clothing does not contain drawstrings to eliminate the risk of strangulation. Also, inspect the item for small pieces (i.e. movable eyes, bows, jewels, etc) that can be removed by your child and swallowed. Remember, choosing organic clothing eliminates exposure to harsh chemicals and flame retardants.

    Supporting NICU Parents

    As a neonatal ICU nurse, I have seen my fair share of parents whose lives have been disrupted by an unexpected admission into the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). NICU admissions can occur for multiple reasons, the most commons being prematurity, respiratory complications, low blood sugar and infection. Assisting parents during this difficult time can be emotionally challenging as a healthcare professional.

Turn on the TV on Sunday and you will find big, burly linebackers wearing pink in support of this cause. The NFL is just one of the many organizations that actively participate in breast cancer awareness activities. Did you know that October is also SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) Awareness Month? Can you guess an activity that lowers both the risk for breast cancer and SIDS?
