It Takes 11 Years of Education and Training to Become a Pediatrician

PediatricianGraphic

Pediatricians are physicians who specialize in the care of infants, children, adolescents and young adults.

I often get asked what it takes to be a pediatrician.

This graphic sums up the years of education and training.

Many people train to work in the medical field, and they may even see patients, but they do not receive this comprehensive training.

Day Night Reversal in Babies

happy-babyNewborns can sleep up to 20 hours a day, but most of them are born wanting to sleep more during the day. Who can blame them when an active mom rocked them to sleep with the her busy days? Once baby is born, who doesn’t want to come and hold the baby? Getting put down to sleep is like losing your seat warmer!

To help baby make the transition to a diurnal mammal, keep daytime bright and nighttime dim. Give your baby tummy time during the day to develop a strong back, neck and arms, but never let your baby sleep unattended on the tummy. Read more about day-night reversal from the AAP here.
