Consider adding Forest Lane Pediatrics to your Facebook News Feed

Over the last several months I have posted topics on the Forest Lane Pediatrics Facebook page that I would have posted on this blog in the past. "Liking" the Forest Lane Pediatrics Facebook page at is an easy way to get pediatric health suggestions and articles sent to you on your FaceBook News Feed that were selected by me and my colleagues. 

Thanks to all who have continued to follow my blog.  My current plan is to continue to post in both places when I can.

Preparing for the 2014-15 Respiratory Virus Season

Here is a good blog post from Texas Children's Hospital that summarizes how you can prepare your children for the next few months of respiratory viruses. 
Take home message:
-Keep hands clean
-Get the flu vaccine
-Monitor for more serious symptoms
-Cold medicines are largely ineffective and potentially dangerous.
