How to help a Richmond Hill family whose toddler drowned in pool

May 15th, 2020

Kaytee Robertson Richmond Hill drowning toddler

Maximus “Max” Robertson of Richmond Hill died this Easter weekend 2020 in an accidental drowning in a relative’s covered pool.

He was two weeks away from turning 2 years old.

This week’s SouthernMamas.com column in Savannah Morning News on Sat. May 16 is about what happened and what his mother, Kaytee Robertson, wants people with home pools to do to prevent drownings. Read it here.

This grieving family has received a lot of community support including from Kaytee’s fellow members of First Baptist Church Richmond Hill MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers), a group Robertson joined three years ago. FBCRH MOPS set up a public online fundraiser for the Robertsons. Donations can be made online here.

(Savannah Pediatricians) Coastal Pediatrics in Savannah & Pooler

May 15th, 2020

Burglar or Bandit? Or maybe neither….

We love this.

Coastal Pediatrics in Savannah staff had noticed more than usual timid and reluctant faces on their patients recently during visits.

They know it can be intimidating for your little one to have to interact with someone wearing a mask. So they posted photos of their physicians and nurse practitioners with and without their masks and suggested that parents take a moment to share the posted photos with them and let them see some of their favorite masked pediatricians or NPs.

See all the Coastal Pediatrics pediatrician and NP masked & unmasked photos here.
