Lots of people ask whether Montessori school is better. Or replace “Montessori” with whatever parenting philosophy you want. Today I’m going to start with a dive into the limited data. And then I’ll explain why, in fact, that question is unanswerable and makes no sense to ask.  Want more on pregnancy and parenting? Subscribe to the ParentData newsletter for free at ParentData.org.

I have another special treat for you. You’re going to hear an interview that I did on Instagram Live with Dr. Liza Aguiar. Liza is a pediatric urologist and when we asked you to submit questions for her, you sent us hundreds. In this conversation, we were able to dive deep into some of your questions about circumcisions, daytime potty training, nighttime potty training and bedwetting, and her real thoughts about Miralax. I hope you enjoy! Want more on pregnancy and parenting? Subscribe to the ParentData newsletter for free at ParentData.org.

Today’s discussion is a heavy one: it’s about stillbirth. Like miscarriage or birth trauma or countless other parts of pregnancy and parenting, this is not a topic that’s easy to discuss. The result of that lack of ease is a lack of discussion. But the lack of discussion can leave people feeling unprepared and alone in loss. It also makes it more difficult to think about interventions that might change outcomes. Want more on pregnancy and parenting? Subscribe to the ParentData newsletter for free at ParentData.org.

Today I’m recommending (very briefly!) several books that I think will resonate with this audience. They are all completely different. Hopefully at least one will work for you… Want more on pregnancy and parenting? Subscribe to the ParentData newsletter for free at ParentData.org.

This is not the first time I’ve discussed Tylenol in pregnancy. It’s not the second time either! But the topic keeps coming up. The latest iteration was a series of scary Instagram posts, some of which reference a possible class-action lawsuit. Yet advisory bodies like the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) and the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine state that Tylenol is safe during pregnancy. So what's going on?

One of the topics I talk and write about most frequently is the value of early allergen introduction in preventing allergy development in children. A natural follow-up question, though, is: What if my child does have an allergy? In today's episode, we're going to dive in to the world of oral immunotherapy (OIT).

Is Homework Important?

2022-09-0106:32

Continuing with our theme of back-to-school week, today we are talking about homework. Is it important? Or is it just a way to force parents to stay up late finishing their children’s Pilgrim dioramas and reliving our childhoods through Model Magic clay? What does the data say?

Is Crawling Important?

Is Crawling Important?

2022-08-2506:17

Several months ago, the CDC issued new guidelines on developmental milestones that completely eliminated crawling from its list. This change prompted some pushback from physical and occupational therapists, who argued that skipping the crawling milestone is a cause for concern. What is the source of this worry, and is it supported in data? Want more on pregnancy and parenting? Subscribe to the ParentData newsletter for free at ParentData.org.

About 18% of women in the U.S. use antidepressants regularly. By far the most common antidepressants are the SSRI class. Both pregnancy and the postpartum period can be times of significant stress and mental health challenges, making the question of use of SSRIs during these periods a salient one for many people.
