I post this for two reasons….the question is posed by someone from Ontario – did the certification folks at U of T put her up to this? and two, the doctor to whom the question is being posed can be followed on TWITTER…….hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

Every weekday, a CNNHealth expert doctor answers a viewer question. On Mondays, it’s pediatrician Dr. Jennifer Shu.
