Infant Health

We all want to stay healthy. When we are healthy, we are able to enjoy life fully and have more energy for day-to-day activities. As parents, we have a responsibility to keep our children healthy and prevent infections and illness.   

Parents have a responsibility to keep their children healthy and prevent infections and illnessBabies and young children get sick more frequently than adults because their immune systems can not fight disease as well. Learn:

  • When your child should have "shots" (immunizations)
  • How to tell if your baby is sick and when to call the doctor 
  • About hearing and the importance of having your baby’s hearing checked soon after birth
  • About the signs of teething, how to soothe teething pain and how to prevent early tooth decay
