Plomo en nuestras vidas? / Lead in our lives?

que se utiliza para crear baterias, construcción y también se puede llegar a encontrar naturalmente en el suelo. 

Muchas de nuestras casas pueden llegar a tener el plomo en la pintura o estamos utilizando cosas para cocinar que contienen barro, lo cual puede hacer que nuestros hijos se expongan

El plomo se puede pegar al cerebro y otras partes del cuerpo para crear anemia, problemas de aprendizaje, malestar entre otras complicaciones.

Did you know that lead poisoning can be prevented? Lead is a very heavy metal that is used to create batteries, construction, and can also be found naturally in soil.

Many of our houses may have lead in paint or we are using cooking utensils that contain mud based components (barro), which can expose our children.

Lead can stick to the brain and other parts of the body to create anemia, learning disabilities, malaise, and other complications.

Las primeras comidas para nuestros hijos / First foods for our children 👶🏼

Cuando nuestros pequeños nacen la leche materna 🤱 es la mejor recomendación, pero cuando van creciendo más las necesidades nutricionales van cambiando.

Un placer estar en Univisión 34 con Gaby esta

Cuando nuestros hijos están listos? (Esta es una lista rápida) Generalmente cada niñ@ es diferente pero podemos ver estas señales a los 4-6 meses de edad

  • Control de cuello
  • Interés en comida

Por otro lado, cómo comenzar? (Aquí comparto 3 tips):

  1. Comenzar con cereales (al principio son un par de cucharadas solamente)
  2. Vegetales 🍅 vs frutas 🍇 ? La verdad no hay diferencia a largo plazo si se comienza con una u otra (lógicamente TODOS preferimos lo dulce primero, pero esto no altera que va. A pasar después)
  3. Trate trate y trate: muchas veces no les gusta la textura, ya que están acostumbrados a los líquidos. No se desespere,

Vaping: What do we know today?

Click para ver el Video completo / Click to view the Video

Hoy en dia la #tecnología nos ha ayudado a mejorar nuestra vida pero tenemos que ser claros que el #Vaping definitivamente está creando problemas en nuestra salud, jóvenes están teniendo acceso a la #nicotina (#veneno) y muchos de ellos utiliza esto como puente a terminar #fumando y #adictos al #tabaco. Estamos apenas entendiendo los efectos secundarios y la ramificación de lo que está pasando con el vapeo. Más de 1,000 casos se han detectado y se siguen incrementando. Cuidece a usted y a su familia: NO LOS UTILICE

Por favor siga la liga en el profile para un par de ligas donde se explica con más detalle lo que está pasando.

Today #technology has been improving our lives, but let’s be clear that #Vaping has created a lot of health problems, our youth is starting to use #nicotine (#poison) and this has created an addiction bridge to start #smoking #tobacco products. We are starting to understand the secondary effects and ramifications of vaping. More than 1,000 cases have been directly linked and this number continues to increase. Take care of yourself and your family: DON’T USE THEM

Summary of week 8: Vaccines and vaccines…

For all parents: when it gets time to start the vaccines of your baby, it’s always harder for the parents for than the baby… Nobody can disagree that vaccines has been one of medicines top 3 inventions that has saved and prevented horrible diseases for human kind.

Our daughter for the first time (actually, the second time, the first was the hepatitis b vaccine at birth) got her 2 month old vaccines, and of course, we were happy to get to the milestone. I have said a couple of hundred times (at least) the short list of common side effects that the baby can have, it is my version of the “Miranda rights” that cops know by heart, but this time was a little bit different, knowing that my flesh and blood was going to be immunized (and my wife is not a fan of any needles!). She did perfectly great on her weight, height, meeting all her developmental millstones; waiting for the big moment finally, we were prepared. It’s amazing how important it is to have calm parents at the moment of vaccination, even a small infant can tell if mammy and daddy are nervous. Everything was done in seconds, and with a smile at the exit of the pediatrician’s office.

There is always a small probability that the patient (aka: daughter), can have fever, crying spells, sleeping more than usual, redness on the site and even a bump, everything controllable with general comfort measures. But, my daughter read with me all the side effects, choosing to have on that evening fever and sleepiness. You can imagine the 7 missed calls that I had in my cell phone before I left the office. If you have in your mind the question “you knew the side effects”, the quick answer is: YES, YES and YES! You needed to see this infant, bundled up, having her first fever smiling at her parents: I’m fine; it’s just a little fever. I tried 3 different thermometers, having the same answer: your daughter DOES have a fever. She continued to eat, laugh and play, having extended periods of sleep during the day, but by morning, thank G-d she was back to her old self: laughing, moving and doing her own tummy time. Every day, I learn something new, to be humble and reaffirming that when a parent tells me the fears and myths  that have heard about vaccines, I will share my personal story and the peer review information regarding why it’s important, side effects and the probability of having a severe bad reaction the vaccines, my conclusion always is: I’M HERE TO HELP YOU UNDERSTAND THE INFORMATION, I can’t guarantee 100% that everything will be perfect, but for sure this is a great choice (PLEASE PLEASE go to http://www.vaccines.com/why-vaccinate-fact-01.cfm).

Now to other matters… I can spend a lot of time watching my daughter, amazed on how they  start exploring the world, finding their hands, grabbing things, smiling… No she is moving her legs, trialing objects and cooing, our “sleep, eat, move and poop machine” is actually converting into a “little person”, communicating her needs and fears.  I can’t extend how important it is for any parent to be on top of this, you are the one that knows your baby best.

 

What I’ve learned this week for THE UNOFFICIAL MANUAL ON HOW A PEDIATRICIAN BECOMES A FATHER:

1)    Vaccines are more painful to watch when you are a parent

2)    Having a great time learning from my best teacher… MY DAUGHTER!
