What happens when you mix cuddles with philanthropy? An opportunity for a conversation

written by Tara Haelle

The insanity of my schedule of late has meant that I’ve not kept up with blogging here as much as I’ve wanted to. I have a few pieces in the works to rectify that. But I needed to publish this post today because it involves an opportunity that ends this evening — a “discount” on […]

Nearly “universal” breastfeeding concerns call for universal breastfeeding support

written by Tara Haelle

When nearly all first-time moms are reporting breastfeeding concerns just a few days after giving birth, it’s pretty safe to say that breastfeeding support resources need a boost. The former was the finding of a study published today in Pediatrics. The latter, mentioned in the study, is my big takeaway from the findings. About three […]

All right, folks, this will be a whirlwind of links, but if you missed any health or science news this week related to parenting, I’ve hopefully included it below. First there’s been a bunch of news about ADHD, and none of it really that good. First, it’s hard to tell which is worse: that we […]

Round-up: News about sleep issues, ADHD, bullying, organic food and more

written by Tara Haelle

Okay, I haven’t done a round-up in a little while, and I’m hoping to get into the habit of doing one a week (which means they’ll be shorter too). This post is just a big ol’ list of stories I’ve written in the past two weeks for dailyRx that I think may be of interest […]

Round-up: Larks & owls, fruits & vegtetables, religion & spirituality…

written by Tara Haelle

Another round-up of some of the stories from dailyRx since I’m still catching up after the Medicine in the Media course… First, a feature I had really been looking forward to writing was this one looking at “larks” and “owls” – and the circadian rhythm disorders that can accompany the extreme versions of these labels.

Vegetables with Superpowers!

written by Tara Haelle

Newsflash! If you make eating vegetables fun, kids might actually eat more of them! Yes, I know it’s hard for parents to believe they’ve never thought of this before. I’m sure there isn’t a single parent out there who ever considered comparing broccoli to tiny trees or making faces out of food… And so, thank […]

What did the organic food study really say?

written by Tara Haelle

The internet blew up yesterday with all the reports on the Stanford study on organic food vs. conventional food. I wrote my own story for dailyRx, but I wanted to give a more broken down version here to make it really easy to see what the study actually said, what it didn’t say and what […]
