Breastfeeding

  • Goat Milk Feedings and Infants Less than One Year of Age
    Goat’s milk is Not appropriate as the primary feeding for infants. Neither goat’s milk nor cow’s milk can adequately replace breast milk or infant formula. Children under one year of age need an approved infant formula if not breast fed. Premature infants will likely need supplementation with a specialized formula in addition to breast feeding.

Toxic Stress

  • We all will be hearing more about toxic stress in the future. This topic is one of the AAP's strategic initiatives on the national level. It should come as no surprise that adverse childhood experiences (or ACEs) such as child abuse, neglect, or living with parents with drug or alcohol abuse causes stress, the hormone-mediated flight-or-fight response that we all know about. However because the ACEs are usually chronic in nature, the stress response from ACE's is never turned off. This prolonged "toxic" stress, especially when experienced in the first several years of life, has been shown to cause observable changes in brain structure and function, as well as epigenetic changes in a child's DNA. The effects not only cause childhood problems such as poor impulse control, emotional dysregulation and developmental delays, but it also has been linked to adult diseases such as heart and lung disease. Pediatricians practice preventative health very well; the hope is that advancements in our understanding of toxic stress will help us improve our practice of preventative mental health.

Transitioning to Adult Health Care

  • Practice Tools & New Website
    The Center for Health Care Transition Improvement - Got Transition recently released The Six Core Elements of Health Care Transition (2.0), which define components of transition support and are based on the clinical report, "Supporting the Health Care Transition from Adolescence to Adulthood in the Medical Home", developed by the AAP (led by the Council on Children with Disabilities), the American Academy of Family Physicians, and the American College of Physicians.

    Three transition tool packages are available for: 1) practices serving youth who will transition out of pediatric care into adult care; 2) practices serving youth who will remain with the same provider but need to transition to adult-focused care; and 3) practices accepting new young adults into adult care. Each package includes sample tools that are customizable and available for download.

    A new website, www.GotTransition.org, includes an interactive health provider section, FAQs developed by and for youth/young adults and families, information for researchers and policymakers, and lists of transition resources.
