            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Floyd County, Karen Kaufman Salic, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED ON BOTH APPEALS.  Considered by Mullins, P.J., and May and Ahlers, JJ.  Opinion by Ahlers, J.  (7 pages)

            The mother and father appeal the juvenile court’s adjudicatory and dispositional orders in this child-in-need-of-assistance proceeding.  OPINION HOLDS: On our de novo review, we reach the same conclusions reached by the juvenile court.  Grounds for adjudication have been established.  Placing the child in the mother’s custody with supervision and prohibitions on the father having contact with the child is an appropriate disposition at this time.
