Traveling with a toddler. Have you ever done it before??? I am about to embark on a new journey. Traveling out of the country on a nice long flight with a 15-month-old.

1 in 68: Autism’s Rising Prevalence

Posted by: Mommy-Go-Round Guest Blogger on Apr 07, 2014 in health, Parenting, Toddlers

April is Autism Awareness Month. The rates of children being diagnosed with autism have skyrocketed in the past 40 years and is predicted to keep going up. Today, 1 in every 68 kids is diagnosed with autism.

The following post was written by pediatrician Bob Sears, a primary-care pediatrician in Capistrano Beach, California, and the author of The Autism Book. “Dr. Bob,” for the blog autismspeaks.com. Dr. Sears is one of three pediatrician sons of the well-known pediatrician William Sears and pediatric nurse Martha Sears. More about their “family practice” can be found at www.askdrsears.com.

For years, many in the medical community have claimed that autism spectrum disorder (ASD) isn’t truly on the rise – that we simply have better diagnosis. I believe that these numbers reveal autism for what it truly is – a national public health priority.

Road Trip: Part 2

Posted by: Stephanie Roussell on Apr 03, 2014 in Babies, Family Fun, Parenting

After driving 12 hours with a 6-month old, I wasn’t sure how the rest of our road trip would go. If you missed the driving part, check out the first blog about our road trip here. I worried that Audrey would be thrown off her schedule, that she wouldn’t sleep well in the hotel or that we wouldn’t be able to tour anywhere because of the stroller. But luckily all my fears were unwarranted!

Bites, Tykes, and the Reaction of a Concerned Mom

Scary times being a mommy. Have you had a few of those?

I’ve had a few come up over the past month or so. I’ve now realized why every little cut, scrape and bruise that I got as a child basically put my mom in tears over her being worried about me. I’m now doing the same thing!!!
