Fussy Babies Program in Oakland

I just learned about the Fussy Babies Program for Newborns to 7 months of age in Oakland, CA.

The flyer states:

"Have concerns about your baby's crying, sleeping or feeding?  You're not alone!  We can help.  Call 510.428.3885, Extension 7229.  A Fussy Baby Program clinician will call you back promptly.  Se habla Espanol!

The Fussy Babies Program offers warmline phone calls to families in Alameda and Contra Costa counties.  Home visits are available for families in Alameda County with full-scope Medi-Cal.

A collaboration between Children's Hospital & Research Center Oakland's Primary Care Clinic and Early Intervention Services Unit.
The Fussy Babies Program is an affiliate of the Fussy Babies Network at the Erikson Institute in Chicago, IL."

Summer Sunscreen

If you are looking for a sunscreen that is free of paba, parabens, phthalates, synthetic dyes, nano-particles, petroleums, chemicals, propylene glycol, sulfates, paba and gluten....cruelty free...and uses certified organic and natural ingredients, look no further than the Oakland company, TruKids.

The Environmental Working Group (EWG) has awarded TruKids entire line of natural body care for kids the safety rating of 0-3.  The safest rating of all kids skin care lines.

You will be supporting a local mom and company....go to www.trukids.com for more information.

*Please note that babies, especially younger than 6 months, should be well covered and out of the sun. Ask your pediatrician about sun exposure and sun screen guidelines for your little ones.
