Kids only 12 months old can undo carseat restraints
Researchers at Yale University’s School of Medicine found some children as young as 12 months can unbuckle their seatbelts. A majority of kids less than three years old can do it, with boys most often the ones attempting to unhook their seatbelts. More than 40 percent of children who are able to unbuckle the restraints are doing so while the car is moving, prompting many parents to pull over, reprimand and then re-buckle the child, according to the study.

In a recent study researchers compared growth, body composition, and blood pressure in three groups of healthy newborns. One group received only breast milk for the first four months. The two other groups were randomized to receive either a low-protein formula with 1.8 grams of protein/100 kilocalories (g/kcal) or a high-protein formula with 2.7 g/100 kcal.  They found that nutrition during the first days or weeks of life may have long-term consequences on health, potentially via a phenomenon known as the metabolic programming effect.

Study Questions Giving Babies Botanical Supplements, Teas
The FDA conducted a study to determine the safety in the use of botanical supplements and teas for infants (10% of babies are given these alternatives during the first year of their life). Some supplements may contain heavy metals or other contaminants, and infants are more susceptible to such toxin. In addition, some dietary supplements have caused seizures and even death in previously healthy infants. One dietary supplement was recalled in 2007 because of microbiological contamination.
