Hey fellow parent! Being a parent is the toughest, yet most rewarding job out there isn’t it? I’m a parent to three small kiddos. All three were born within four years almost to the day. So when I say I understand that parenting can be tough I’m not kidding. On top of being a parent I am trained as a physical therapist and the majority of those years I spent working in pediatrics. I realized how lucky I am that I am trained in this area and don’t have to scour the internet looking for development or play information or feel that I have to be the Pinterest perfect parent. There is enough pressure out there already! Pink Oatmeal is a spot where I wanted you to have easy to access resources about your kiddos development so you can rest a little easier! Enjoy!
Although I am a physical therapist, this is NOT a place for skilled therapeutic intervention. The ideas presented on this website and in products are for informational/educational purposes only and are not medical advice. A website can never replace an individualized treatment plan developed as the result of assessment, clinical observation, and collaboration between therapist, caregiver, and (if applicable) child. If you are concerned about the development or functional abilities of a particular child in your life, then that child’s parent should talk with the pediatrician or their therapist.
