This has been an unusual year for influenza with a very late start (we are just now seeing a ramp up in influenza). It is not too late to receive your influenza vaccination which will also provide protection for next year's influenza season as well. We have plenty of Flumist in stock, however, the injectable supply is depleted for this year. Parents are also invited to receive Flumist as long as they meet the proper medical qualifications!
Reading has been shown to impact children’s speech, language development, and reading

impact your child’s development.
The “Terrible Twos” often last well into the “threes,” or third year of life. Dealing with a defiant
toddler can be difficult. Make sure to choose your battles and be consistent. If it is a small matter,

and discuss your parenting style with others who care for your child so that everyone is on the same
Influenza is a sometimes serious but often preventable illness. It is recommended that children and adolescents of all ages receive the influenza vaccine. Vaccine supply this year has been sluggish, however, we currently have all vaccines types (including Flumist) in stock. All of our current influenza vaccine supply is preservative (thimerosal) free. Call the office today to schedule influenza vaccination for your child!
Being a new parent is overwhelming and exhausting! Make sure that when you lie your infant down that you ALWAYS put them on their back. There should not be pillows, blankets, stuffed animals or other items in the crib or bassinet with them as this increases the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).
