Breastfeeding does not ordinarily hurt. Just hope that expectant mothers won't read this article and get the wrong idea.

We hope an implantable pump becomes an option for type 1. We have read about U.S. citizens with type 1 who fly to France every three months to refill an earlier version of the implantable pump, which more »

For those with kids with preexisting conditions that are chronic, the Affordable Care Act is a godsend.

If Republican-led states had cooperated more with the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, perhaps the polls numbers would be better. Of course the website disaster and enrollment challenges are more »

From the vantage point of a layperson and parent of grown children, I think giftedness is a more complicated phenomenon than this article would indicate. For instance, some gifted kids will take longe more »

I hope a reporter does a story on how many 51A's Children's files. It would seem that they use 51A's to transfer liability to DCF. It it not possible to sue them for inappropriate 51A's: no mandated r more »
