6 Low-Stress Baby Checkups
How to calm your fears about scary-sounding common baby health problems. Well-baby checkups are usually happy occasions — you find out that your little one is thriving, that she’s on-target (or ahead of the curve!) with her milestones, that she’s just the cutest thing the office nurse has ever seen. But once in a while, the pediatrician will pick up on something that’s not quite right.

How to Stop Sibling Struggles
Why toddlers cause sibling clashes and how to keep the peace between your kids

Does Your Child Have Asthma?
What every mom needs to know about asthma symptoms and treatment. It’s never easy to hear that your child may have a lifelong illness, especially one that interferes with breathing. But the fact that asthma is so common — nearly 7 million kids have been diagnosed, and all those with allergies or parents with the condition are at risk of developing it — means doctors (and moms) know a lot about how to manage it. In fact, with proper treatment, even kids with severe asthma can live perfectly normal lives. So go ahead, breathe that sigh of relief. We’re here to help you every step of the way.

5 Common Asthma Triggers
Asthma and allergy triggers lead to serious breathing problems. Here’s how to beat them.

How to Take a Mommy Day Off
For readers unfamiliar with this concept, a day for yourself is defined as a series of uninterrupted hours during which you relax, read, take a yoga class, see a friend, or skip through a wheat field in slow motion, if that’s what makes you feel good.
