Positive Parenting: ADHD in Babies

Could your little ones behavior actually be a warning sign for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)?

Babies who have a hard time sleeping, eating, and excessively crying beyond the first three months of life were more likely to have ADHD.

ADHD affects more than 6 million kids in the U.S.

When and if it is left untreated, it can lead to major behavior problems at school and at home.

Good news is that scientists may have identified potential warning signs and they are showing up in babies.

Experts say that ADHD improves over time for most children, but one third of kids have symptoms throughout adulthood.

Pediatricians are the best people to go to if your child is showing any warning signs of ADHD to help regulate their behaviors and set a daily routine that works for you and them.
