This is my 100th MD Mama post!

I don't actually count everything I write. But the "backstage" area of keeps track of it for me, and it's been fun to be approaching 100. I've been having a great time since starting the MD Mama blog this past March; I am thankful to all who have read them and to those who have left comments. Even when the comments aren't positive, I appreciate when people take the time to let me know what they think.

Speaking of which...if anybody has anything they would like me to write about, I'd love to hear from you. I can't give specific medical advice, of course--I can't do that without being able to do a full history and physical examination. But maybe there are topics you've been wondering about, or general questions that you either keep forgetting to ask the doctor about or feel silly asking the doctor about.

Along those lines...I'll be starting to do some "FAQ's", short blogs answering questions I hear again and again in my practice. This week I'll talk about when to worry (or, more importantly, not worry) about the color of your baby's poop--I have been asked about that countless times (twice last week!). 

So let me know! You can post things here in the comment section, or send me a message on my Dr.Claire Facebook page (where I post everything I write, not only from but Boston Children's Thriving blog and Huffington Post too--if you "like" me, you can get updates). 

Any topic is fair game--health (staying healthy, conditions, treatments) parenting, health policy, societal issues, media issues, you name it. All of it affects us as parents, right?  If I don't know about it, I'll learn about it or find somebody who does know about it to help me; at Boston Children's, there are some pretty amazing people--the depth of expertise is incredible.

I look forward to hearing from you.
