Lactation Support Available

We are excited to introduce a new service at Pediatric Associates!  Elise, a nurse here for 11 years, is now available for lactation counseling in our Crestview Hills office.  If you have breast feeding issues, speak to your provider, and they may recommend lactation counseling.  If you decide you want to see Elise, you can call our office and schedule an appointment.  She is usually in Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays.  We recognize that although this is a natural process it does not always come easily to everyone. Providing this support for you both is important to us so that you and your baby can enjoy all the benefits of breastfeeding.  Please be aware that there is a charge for this service that is not billable to insurance.

Strength Spotting Can Help With Homework 

Let's face it, your kids are likely more interested in Snapchatting with their friends after school than doing their homework. Knowing your child's temperament and what they need to focus on can help you influence your child's success. For example, do they need quiet? Do they work better with others around? Do you need to hide the remote so they can focus? How do they need you to be present? How long can they sit before they get distracted by their phone? Do they need shorter breaks more often or can they sit still and get it done in one stretch? A great way to offer encouragement is to strength-spot them. Your creativity really helps you with your writing. I am proud to see you are using it to do such a great job on your research paper.

Be Intentional During Your Evening Routine

A consistent evening routine is just as important as your morning routines. Be intentional in winding down so your children can ease into the transition of going to sleep. Try to complete preparations for the next day (picking out clothes, getting their backpack ready, preparing and packing their lunch) as early as possible. It's important to make time for the things that help them to relax. Rather than binging on Netflix, try a mindful activity like the body scan, deep breathing or even a warm calming soak in the tub. Evenings are a great time to read together to encourage curiosity and a love of learning. Parents that are fully present for this part of their child's day can more easily wind down from their day as well. Snuggling is sometimes what some children need to go from their day to a good night's sleep.
