American Academy of Pediatricshttp://www.aap.org

Our primary source for information on all things Pediatric – the AAP has nearly a century of experience guiding parents and physicians on the best care of children. The AAP continues to be a reliable source for evidence-based medical information, guidelines for best practices, but you will be pleased to find lots of great information just for you. The AAP has recently added a really great section on immunizations so that you can hopefully wade through some of the frightening information you may be receiving from the media and worried friends, to arm yourself with the latest and most reliable information about this controversial subject.

 

HealthyChildren.org

Healthy Children – www.healthychildren.org

A page powered by the AAP but specifically FOR PARENTS.  There are links to fantastic parenting apps, information on nutrition, behavior and development as well as how to troubleshoot your child’s illness.  This page is loaded with great information from prenatal care to transitioning to the adult world, and written to be easily understood by parents – not just technical, journalese.  The information is based on the most recently published data, however, with guidelines carefully constructed by the AAP – real pediatricians doing the real work of research as well as direct patient care.  We find that it is mostly free of bias, and we think it’s a great first source of information for parents.
