Submitted by Mariela Miranda on 15:10

Huggies diapers – available at Discount Medical Supplies – are well known pediatric supplies, due in no small part to their constant innovation. The Kimberly Clark-marketed brand has taken a page out of Apple’s book and has launched the Huggies Little Snugglers Nano Preemie Diapers, especially designed for premature babies weighing less than two pounds (900 grams). In other words, the proverbial Tom Thumbs of the world. Less than 1.4% of babies are born every year that can be classed in this weight division, but if the UFC just created a new Women's Featherweight Championship, why not do something similar for babies?

Medical supplies such as a breast pump could have prevented a case of mistaken breastfeeding that took place in North Carolina. A Carrboro Early School pre-kindergarten teacher named Kaycee Oxendine complained that a daycare worker at the selfsame school breastfed her 3-month-old son without her consent – and presumably without the boy’s consent as well, though it’s hard to tell; he has kept mum about the whole incident. The unidentified woman asked Oxendine if she could breast-feed her constipated son twice – that is she asked twice if she could breastfeed him, not if she could breastfeed him twice. After all, if the mother said no to one breastfeeding, she was even more likely to say no to two.

Healthcare providers should consider buying medical supplies online in the way of otoscopes and ear evaluation. According to a recent CDC report, approximately 40 million American adults aged 20 to 69 years have noise-induced hearing loss; over 1 in 2 American adults with hearing damage from noise do not have noisy jobs; and about 1 in 4 American adults who report excellent to good hearing already have hearing damage. If a patient’s visit to your facility goes along the lines of a Steve Austin promo, that patient’s hearing may be damaged. However, the best way to know for sure is to perform a hearing checkup.
