Pediatrician Dr. Michelle Standford from Aurora, CO answers common questions that parents have about illnesses and injuries in babies and young children, including how to treat common problems at home, how to recognize when symptoms are serious, and when to call the doctor for help.

Top 3 Take-Aways:
1. There isn’t a number for a too-high fever, you should also look at manner and behavior.
2. It’s normal for kids in daycare or school to get sick every two weeks.
3. Poison Control is the best and first resource for when your child ingests something potentially unsafe.
