The dangers of grapefruit juice and medication

Grapefruit juice and obviously grapefruits since they contain grapefruit juice, can be deadly when you’re on certain medications.

Best Noise Cancelling Headphones for Babies

Why would you buy noise cancelling headphones for your baby?

No, this is not a joke!

 

Hearing protection headphones for babies

 

Look: the first time I heard about newborns’ sensitive hearing was from my speech therapist friend who was sitting out a friend’s wedding in the lobby holding her infant.
