“Blankets, out. Your child does not need a blanket to keep warm.”

Actually, the American Academy of Pediatrics says there should be nothing in the crib with infants—not plush toys or even monitors.

Whooping Cough Vaccination During Pregnancy Seems Safe

ImageTo vaccine or not to vaccine? It seems that has become an ever more trending topic these days. HealthDay News has announced that vaccinating pregnant women during their third trimester appears to be safe for both mother and child. Do you vaccine yourself, children and while you were pregnant?

http://www.philly.com Article:
Vaccinating pregnant women during their third trimester to prevent tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis in their future offspring appears to be safe for both mother and child, new research suggests.

The findings — which may provide some reassurance to parents with general concerns about vaccination safety — are reported in the May 7 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association.

The new preliminary study explored the safety of the “Tdap” vaccine when offered before birth.

The investigation was prompted by the particular threat to infants posed by pertussis — commonly known as whooping cough — a highly contagious and sometimes deadly disease that has recently made a comeback among American children.

About 90 percent of fatal cases of whooping cough occur among children under the age of 6 months, according to background information from the journal.

However, although the disease is preventable if vaccinated against, current recommendations advise that the “DTaP” vaccine — a different form of the vaccine used to prevent the same conditions — be offered only to infants at the ages of 2 months, 4 months and 6 months.
