You don’t always remember to ask every question at your child’s check-up. When something comes up with your child and you’re looking for some answers, you don’t want to wait. That’s why it’s good to know you can go online and find an abundance of information from knowledgeable sources.
Here are the pediatrician blogs you should check out:
- Mama Doc
The author of this blog, Dr. Wendy Sue Swanson, is both a mom and pediatrician. She started this parenting blog at Seattle Children’s Hospital in 2010 to share her insights for keeping your kids healthy. Dr. Swanson says, “Parents just want to do what is right. It’s the defining what’s right that, on occasion, remains elusive.” Read our interview with Dr. Swanson: Doctors Blogging? A Wildly Successful Case Study.
- 700 Children’s
Named for the street address of Nationwide Children’s Hospital, the 700 Children’s blog features current pediatric health care information and research. Their own team of pediatric experts contributes to this trove of information. Our favorite feature is how searchable the blog is.
