FDA says stop using over-the-counter benzocaine products on teething infants

Date: May 23rd, 2018

Parents: Your kids don't need topical soothing medicines for their teething gums, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration is saying.

In fact, Wednesday morning the FDA issued a warning against over-the-counter teething products containing benzocaine, saying they pose a "serious risk to infants and children" and lack benefit, as well.

After giving the first epinephrine and there was no response, we gave the second one, only to realize they were both expired and were likely inactive from being in a hot car during summer months.

A Baby-Led Approach to the Introduction of Solids and Risk of Choking

Date: May 22nd, 2018

In Western countries, parents typically introduce their infant to complementary foods by spoon-feeding them small amounts of pureed food. As the baby gets used to eating purees, a wider range of textures (mashed, diced, then whole) and tastes can be introduced. In ‘baby-led’ approaches to the introduction of solids, the use of purees is generally bypassed and the infant feeds himself whole foods from the beginning of the complementary feeding period at around six months of age. Many people believe there are several advantages to a baby-led approach:

i) infants remain in control of their food intake, which might make it easier for them to recognize when they are full;
ii) infants are involved with family mealtimes rather than being fed separately, which is good for family interactions;
iii) they are offered a wider range of foods, which might make them less fussy about food.
