Boosting Babies’ Brains

Project Description


Dr. Kendra and Dr. Melissa; A couple of moms talking about things they wish everyone knew!
Donations are welcome for My Friends House

Did you know certain nutrient levels can affect your child’s IQ even before they’re born? Or that how much sun you get during pregnancy can dictate when your baby is born?
Which vitamins are necessary? Or can we get everything we need from food?
Dr. Kendra will kick things off discussing the latest research on how to optimize brain health from tummy to toddler using nutrition and supplementation.

Dr. Melissa will round out the hour with info on the appropriate timelines for motor skill development in infants, why it’s so important for infants to spend time on their tummy, sit to build a strong spine, and crawl before they walk. Plus tips on the best ways to ensure your child is on-track, what you can do to support healthy development, and what problems to watch for.

Dr. Melissa will also discuss the appropriate use of baby carriers, slings, swings, bumbos, jolly jumpers and other gear for your infant, such as when to introduce them, how to use these items correctly, how to avoid injuries, and tips to maximize their effectiveness and make your life easier!
