What’s in a name? County parents go their own way Boys’ names are fairly unique for 2014; two girls have a variation of ‘Lily’ The Chronicle OMAK – Parents in Okanogan and Ferry counties continued their independent ways when naming their babies during 2014. A look at names of 2014 babies born to the area’s parents, as reported in The Chronicle during the year, reveals no duplicated name for boys and one duplicated name for girls – Lily (two babies, two spelling variations). While most of the names are unique among the area’s newborns, most of them also don’t make the list of top baby names nationwide. For the boys, only Liam (No. 23 nationally), Levi (No. 12), Emmett (No. 26), Charles (No. 77) and Ryder (No. 43) were on the national list. Slightly more local girls’ names were on the national list: Hazel (No. 10 nationally), Lily/Lillie (No. 75), Ada (No. 85), Olivia (No. 17), Sofia/Sophia (No. 55), Lillie/Lily (No. 75) and Amelia (No. 8).

Names for boys in 2014 locally, listed alphabetically, include: Bradley Buck Carson Charles Colten Elias Emmett Evan Ezequiel Gaizka Hunter Kingsly Kyien

Levi Liam Logan Ozzy Paxton Phoenix Preston Robert Rudy Ryder Seamus Talon Tanner

Top names for girls locally, listed alphabetically, include: Ada Amelia Elissa Hadley Hazel Kamree Kashlyn Katelyn Kendall Lillie Lily

Vaccines can help save lives The Chronicle OKANOGAN – Health officials encourage parents to vaccinate their children to prevent the spread of diseases and to ensure a healthy life. According the website vaccines.gov, immunizations can save a child’s life. “Because of advances in medical science, your child can be protected against more diseases than ever before,” the site said. “Some diseases that once injured or killed thousands of children have been eliminated completely and others are close to extinction, primarily due to safe and effective vaccines.” Polio is an example of a disease that has been virtually eliminated thanks to vaccines. “Polio was once America’s most-feared disease, causing death and paralysis across the country, but today, thanks to vaccination, there are no reports of polio in the United States,” vaccines.gov said. Officials said temporary pain of the injection spot, along with minimal, temporary side effects far out weigh a life-threatening disease.

Playtime! That means homemade play dough OMAK — Homemade play dough is easy to make, cleans up easily and is non-toxic. 1 cup white flour 1/4 cup salt 2 tablespoons cream of tartar Combine and add: 1 cup cold water Food coloring (optional) 1 tablespoon cooking oil In a medium saucepan, mix together flour, salt and cream of tartar. A non-stick pot works best. Combine water, a few drops of food coloring (if desired) and oil. Add to dry ingredients and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, for three to five minutes. It will look globby. When it forms a ball in the center of the pot, remove from the heat and turn it out on a slightly floured surface. Knead briefly until smooth. Cool and store in an airtight container (a one-pint cottage cheese or margarine tub will hold it) or a zippered plastic bag. This dough is edible, but not tasty. It keeps, unrefrigerated, for several weeks. Be sure to provide plenty of cookie cutters, a rolling pin, dull plastic knives, bottle caps and other items for cutting and shaping. This dough cleans up well. If a bit of it does dry on a surface, pick or chip off as much as possible, then remove the rest with a damp rag or non-abrasive scrubber. If it’s left uncolored, it won’t stain.

Reading helps child develop and learn OLYMPIA — Reading with your child can help the child develop in many different ways. Parents are the child’s first teacher and time spent with baby is important, the state Department of Health said. Some tips: • A child learns best in a loving, encouraging and helping environment, so hold the child in your lap while reading. • Let the child choose the book and decide when to turn the pages. • Choose books that help the child explore the world around him or her. • Keep the child’s body active by letting

baby turn the pages. An older child can act out stories as they are read. • Play, talk, read and write with the child. That will help baby understand that the words on the page mean something.

highest priced public universities in the state – University of Washington and Washington State University. Units can be purchased in whole or partial amounts, from one to 500 units per student.

Oral germs can be spread around

Buckle up: State law requires child restraints

OLYMPIA — Germs cause cavities and can be spread from parents to infants and toddlers. Foods and drinks fee germs, which make acids and cause cavities, the Washington Dental Service Foundation said. Tooth decay can be stopped if it is caught early. To prevent tooth decay: • Set a good example. Brush, floss and have regular checkups. • Use fluoride to prevent and heal early tooth decay. • Consult with your doctor or dentist about fluoride drops or tablets if your water system doesn’t contain fluoride. Fluoride varnish and sealants also are available. • Choose tooth-healthy snacks such as cheese, fruits and vegetables. Avoid snacking or sipping on sweet liquids throughout the day. • Drink lots of water after meals and snacks to help clean teeth.

OLYMPIA – When riding in vehicles, children in Washington must be restrained in infant or booster seats until they are 8 years old or 4 feet 9 inches tall. Under state law, infants must ride in rear-facing infant seats until they are a year old or weigh 20 pounds. Children 1-4 years old or weighing 40 pounds are to ride in forward-facing child

State offers college savings program OLYMPIA – The state’s Guaranteed Education Tuition program – known as GET – allows parents, grandparents and others to set aside money for college tuition a little at a time. GET is guaranteed to keep pace with tuition costs, no matter how much they increase, and is not subject to the ups and downs of the stock market, the state said. Parents and others can save on the future cost of college tuition by starting to save when the child is young, and by reducing student loans as much as possible. GET tuition credits can be used at colleges, universities and technical schools nationwide, and can be used for any qualified higher education expenses. Under the program, people can purchase GET units, where 100 units represent the cost of one year of resident, undergraduate tuition and state-mandated fees at the

car seats. Children who are less than 8 years old or 4 feet 9 inches tall, whichever comes first, must be restrained in a child booster seat when both lap and shoulder belts are available. Free child car seat checks are offered in most areas. Information is available from the Washington Safety Restraint Coalition. The fine for improper use or failure to wear a seat belt or child safety restraint device is $124. Children under the age of 13 are required to ride in the back seat when it is practical, the Washington State Patrol said. The patrol said a child’s car seat should be replaced if it has been involved in a collision. —The Chronicle

Hospitals offer special birthing amenities The Chronicle OMAK – Whether you’re an expecting parent, or you expect to be expecting, choosing the right hospital can make a world of difference. Four birthing centers serve Okanogan and Ferry counties from hospitals in or adjacent to Okanogan County. (Ferry County Memorial Hospital in Republic does not have an obstetrics unit.) Coulee Medical Center Coulee Medical Center, 411 Fortuyn Road, Grand Coulee, provides on-site gynecologic and obstetrics services for women’s health, prenatal care and childbirth. In 2014, there were 64 births at the hospital. The center offers two birthing rooms, where families can enjoy a relaxed, comfortable and personalized birthing experience. The childbirth team includes experienced physicians, certified nurse practitioner and a nationally certified nurse midwife, who is accredited by the American College of Nurse-Midwives. Mid-Valley Hospital Mid-Valley Hospital, 810 Jasmine St., Omak, delivered 230 babies in 2014. The hospital offers three labor, delivery, recovery and postpartum rooms. Administrator Mike Billing said the center offers two on-call, board-certified obstetricians for backup assistance when necessary with an additional seven to 10 family practitioners to assist when needed. “Additionally, we have three of

those primary OB or family practice doctors who also can perform emergency C-sections” should need arise, he said, adding emergency hysterectomies and other surgeries can be performed on site. North Valley Hospital In 2014, North Valley Hospital, 203 S. Western Ave., Tonasket, delivered 92 babies. Along with compassionate staff and nurses, the hospital offers several specialties to new parents, hospital officials said. “We provide complimentary newborn photos,” Business Development Coordinator Terri Orford said. “This includes a photo shoot session, editing of the photos, a disc with full copyright release to the parents, and posting them on our Facebook page, with

patient consent.” While enjoying the photos, new parents can enjoy a candlelight salmon or steak dinner, complete with childcare. “Our nurses will even keep the baby while the parents enjoy a delicious meal together,” she said. Spacious, modern spaces where mothers can give birth and recover in the same room, along with a jetted tub, are offered to assist in labor pain management and make the experience as pleasurable as possible, she said. “We try to allow the expecting mom to personalize her birth experience,” she said. The mother “gets to chose how many loved ones get to be present for the birth, how she would like to labor to make her as comfortable as possible (and) use music for meditation.”

The hospital delivered its first water birth last year. Three Rivers Hospital Three Rivers Hospital, 507 Hospital Way, Brewster, a offers birthing suites where mothers can labor, deliver and recover in the same room, unless a cesarean section is necessary. C-sections are performed in a surgery suite with recovery room.

All attempts are made to maintain the family unit during the experience, hospital officials said. That family centered approach has been shown to enhance patient and family satisfaction. The hospital became nationally designated as “baby friendly” 11 years ago. Birthing statistics for 2014 were not available at press time.
