Social media and teens

A recent article showed a higher incidence of depression in teen who spend a lot of time on social media. This is something that we might be concerned about as parents and paediatricians, but there are some studies that do show this statistically. So, parents need try and monitor this and always have lines of communication open.

TEETHING PRODUCTS BANNED:

The FDA has recently warned against teething products with benzocaine and have asked companies to stop manufacturing them. Typical products containing this are oragel and ambesol etc. Swallowing benzocaine can cause a serious blood problem called methemoglobinemia. Paediatricians usually just recommend something firm to bite on like a teething ring. cold is fine but not frozen as this can cause frostbite on the face.
