Beyond Google

With so much information available a click away, it’s natural to search for your child’s health. But sometimes, there’s so much information that it’s overwhelming. And what websites can you trust? Here are a few sites we trust to help get you started.

Healthychildren.org is a trusted resource for parents with information vetted by the American Academy of Pediatrics. You can read about specific conditions as well as browse and search topics relevant to your child’s age and development.

CDC Milestone Tracker - Milestones matter! Track your child’s milestones from age 2 months to 5 years with CDC’s easy-to-use illustrated checklists; get tips from CDC for encouraging your child’s development; and find out what to do if you are ever concerned about how your child is developing. There’s even a mobile app.

Environmental Working Group- The EWG is a non-profit, non-partisan organization dedicated to protecting human health and the environment. The EWG has long been a resource for both adult and pediatric doctors when providing safety advice for everything from lead in the water to cosmetics to sunscreen.

  Immunizations

One of the most important parts of your preventative care visits in infancy and childhood is immunizations. Here at Discover Health, we believe that the large body of scientific evidence showing the safety of the AAP and CDC endorsed vaccination schedule is valid and reliable. That said, because of the personalized care we provide, we can work with you on the timing of vaccines so that we can protect your child in a way that makes you comfortable.
