If you're been buying insurance through the Affordable Care Act exchanges, here's more news you need to know. In a surprise weekend announcement, the Trump administration temporarily suspended $10 billion worth of 2017 "risk adjustment payments."

In those first days, weeks and months, new grandmothers (and grandfathers) can serve as resources in what feels like a prolonged guessing game of “What’s upsetting my baby?” But while they’re often expert diaper changers and baby whisperers, the trouble with relying solely on mom’s knowledge is that a lot may have changed since she had babies of her own. “The reason we have all the recommendations for babies is we can study them,” said Dr. Renee F.
