Our goal in this blog is to help answer common questions relating to childhood illnesses and development.  We strive to provide relevant information to address current parent questions and community happenings.   Our advice typically comes from either our providers’ experiences in caring for children through the years, or from other reputable blogs and pediatric resources.  These are not limited to, but include:  American Academy of Pediatrics parenting websiteTwo Peds in a PodDr. Wendy Sue Swanson, and Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

Additional helpful parent information can be found on our website on either of these pages: Most commonly asked questions of our nurses or Newborn and infant handouts.  If you have suggestions of topics you’d like us to address on the blog, please email patientcare@pediatricassociates.net.  We’d love to hear from you.
