Would you let your toddler swim on her own?
One father did and is getting a mixed reaction online. “New Day” took a closer look at the viral video of a 16-month-old swimming across a pool in only one breath.
We want to know, is it really safe?
Dr. Jennifer Caudle weighs in. Dr. Caudle is a board-certified family physician and assistant professor in the Department of Family Medicine at Rowan University, School of Osteopathic Medicine.
“If the child didn't know how to swim, they weren't properly trained, clearly this is not a good idea,” Dr. Caudle says. But it’s clear from the video Elizabeth can swim. “I personally would like a parent or guardian to be very very close to that child just in case.”
Dr. Caudle also sheds light on a new drug meant to treat hot flashes.
Music to the ears of millions of women, this is the first FDA approved, non-hormonal drug to help treat the very common symptom of menopause.
Dr. Caudle considers this development a “big deal” for “providing a safer alternative…that’s appropriate for more women.”
