Parental Control, Ep 23: Children’s Winter Health: How Many Colds Are Too Many?

In this episode of My Baba’s podcast Parental Control, paediatrician Dr Sophie Niedermaier-Patramani joins the show to talk about children’s winter health.

We talk about everything from childhood illnesses, such as chickenpox and measles to if it’s actually possible to be too sterile in the home. We spoke a lot about the microbiome and its job in fighting infection and whether children actually need vitamin supplements or not.  The only thing the jury is still out on is whether you will catch a cold if you go out with wet hair!

About Dr Sophie Niedermaier-Patramani

Sophie co-founded Little Tummy to bring honest and healthy children’s food directly to parents’ homes. She is a paediatrician with more than 10 years’ working experience in various healthcare systems and has regularly guided parents on their weaning journeys.

She trained at top-level universities in Germany (LMU Munich), Switzerland (University of Bern) and the US (Harvard Medical School).

Little Tummy

As of July 2019, she is also a mother to a little girl and is currently experiencing and enjoying the weaning journey first hand. At Little Tummy she ensures that every ingredient has a purpose and designs all recipes to make them not only delicious but also high in nutritional value.

Sophie believes that parenting is easier when you are given all the right information. This is why she gives strictly evidence-based advice to parents on our social media outlets and during weaning workshops. The time when she can strategise about her business best is during long runs with and without her baby stroller.
