There are so many sites out there, and busy parents aren’t sure what to look at first when researching health issues. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has a website with a newsletter and an e-zine that can be a place to start. They write a monthly newsletter on a wide range of subjects, and the e-zine is published much less frequently but goes into more depth on the issue’s theme. Their advice sounds like the responses you would receive from your seasoned pediatrician, if they had the time to answer all of your questions. Sometimes with a fussy child you just need to get in and out before things get truly ugly.
Do not expect in-depth research or much of a mention of alternative health ideas. This is mainstream medicine. But they do a nice job of organizing their information and the pieces are short and to the point. When you have a quick question, that can be enough!
