Returning to a School Year Sleep Routine
With fall on the horizon, we have checked off supply lists, trimmed overgrown locks and filled backpacks to the brim. But if kids haven’t transitioned back to their school year sleep habits, they’re not ready for the first day.
Each day, the foods we choose to give our children play a large part in their ability to learn new information and control their behavior. It also gives them the stamina they need to excel in afternoon sports and activities.
What causes it and how to treat it
Have you ever looked at your child’s skin and noticed dry, flaky places? Or skin that is a little rough with a yellow hue? Maybe red bumps on her cheeks or arms? While a child may develop a rash on occasion, eczema is a condition that tends to hang on for a period of time.
Imagine the entire city of Olathe anxiously awaiting an organ donation to continue living. Actually, that is roughly how many people nationally are waiting for an organ donation today. And, according to the Mayo Clinic, while they are waiting, 18 of them will die each day. What would you hope for if that were your mother, father, sister, brother, husband, wife or child?
Baby-led weaning has nothing to do with weaning from breastfeeding or from bottle feeding. Instead, it has everything to do with introducing food and, instead of starting with pureed baby food, letting your child feed himself solid foods (BabyLedWeaning.com). Talk with your pediatrician to see whether your child is ready to start solid foods, but most babies are ready for food by 6 months. Signs your baby is ready to be introduced to food are being able to sit up by himself, having lost the tongue thrust reflex and being able to grasp food with his hands and hold onto it.
