How to complete safety checks for babies at home
COVID-19 has changed our routines, increased stress and made everyday tasks harder including for parents of young children. The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) said Baby Safety Month is a good time to make some safety checks around your home. Many parents are working from home, and at the same time they’re taking care of a young baby at home. Babies should also sleep on their backs to prevent suffocation and reduce risk of the Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, or SIDS. Davis also recommends no longer using inclined sleepers.
How time of year babies are born can affect risk of having food allergies
New research suggests the time of year a baby is born could increase the risk of them having food allergies. More than 5 million children have food allergies, and that number is on the rise.

Babies born at different times of the year experience a variety of different factors that can raise or lower the risk of various conditions. A new clinical trial will further study why babies born in the fall tend to have weakened skin barriers.
