Parent Resources from Pediatricians

We were recently reminded of the many resources for parents available through our colleagues at the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). While many of the features of the main AAP website are only available to pediatrician members, there is no such restriction on the AAP sponsored website

The Healthy Children website, which is available in both English and Spanish language versions,  features information for parents on each stage of child development, in a section called "Ages and Stages". It also has timely information on current issues, such as flu prevention and treatment and winter safety tips. There are links to new research findings and a "find a pediatrician" feature.

We were also pleased to see the website information available in a new free app for iPads and iPhones as well as android phones. A web based magazine, also titled Healthy Children, seems excellent but has not been updated since it was launched in the fall of 2012.
