Just Kids Pediatrics offers medial grade ear piercing services! Our physicians and nurses researched the best available medical grade ear piercing products and decided on Blomdahl Medical. The Blomdahl System is only available through medical professionals. Just Kids Pediatrics and Blomdahl considers ear piercing to be a medical procedure. With that in mind, the Blomdahl Medical Ear Piercing System has been designed from a medical standpoint, using modern technology and medical grade, safe materials.

Using the Blomdahl medical ear piercing system, we provide your child with a safer and more sanitary alternative to the mall or jewelry store. Blomdahl is a sterile system where a disposable cartridge is replaced with every piercing and medical-grade plastic or titanium piercing studs are used to reduce the chance of allergic reaction. 

The ear piercing services are not covered by insurance and costs a one time charge of $90.00. This includes a set of 2 sterile earrings with back, topical anesthetic, the piercing procedure performed by a member of our trained nursing staff, aftercare instructions, and a piercing aftercare kit. These services are available to anyone under the age of 19 years old and by appointment only.

Boost Your Child’s Immune System

In some of our previous blogs, we discussed some ways to help keep your child healthy this winter. Read What To Know For Flu Season, Avoid Getting A Cold, and Three Illnesses To Avoid This Winter, to learn some great ways to help your child and yourself avoid getting sick. Another way to avoid getting sick is by helping your child and yourself boost the immune system. If your immune system is stronger and you’re healthier, you and your child will have a harder time getting sick. At Just Kids Pediatric, a pediatric health care facility for children in Oklahoma City, we’re able to give you some useful tips to ensure your child’s health.

Fruits and Vegetables

As a parent, you’ve probably read on and on about the importance of feeding your child fruits and vegetables. We’re going to reiterate that importance because it is vital that you feed your child fruits and vegetables, especially when they are growing. Fruits and vegetables are filled with so many immunity boosting nutrients; when you start your child eating these foods at an early age, they’ll be able to continue having a great immune system for the remainder of their life.

Sleeping

Sleeping well throughout life is imperative. When you sleep the required hours, your brain will be more functional, your immune system will boost, and you’ll be able to go about your day-to-day activities without feeling exhausted. When your child is growing, they should continue to have many hours of sleep to ensure they are as high functioning as possible. To give you a good idea of what your child should be sleeping: a baby needs 18 hours of crib time, a toddler at least 12 hours, and a preschooler 10 hours. As your child grows he or she should have at least eight hours of sleep a night.

Exercise

When you incorporate exercise into your family when your child is small, they’re able to go through life exercising everyday. Exercise as a family by playing sports, bike riding, or going for weekly hikes. Not only will you participate in family bonding time, but your child will carry on the importance of exercising throughout his or her life and maintain a healthy immune system.
