    All pregnant women and those planning to become pregnant should receive a flu shot because the normal changes to a pregnant woman's immune system, heart and lungs put moms-to-be at increased risk of the harmful effects of flu infection, experts say. Also, babies born to mothers who got their flu shot while pregnant were protected from serious illness from influenza during their first six months of life, research shows.

  • Viability of premature babies minimal at 22 weeks' gestation, Spanish study shows

    18 Sep 2014 | 6:12 am
    A new study analyses the survival rates in Spain of newborns with a gestational age under 26 weeks. The results show that survival under 23 weeks is ‘exceptional’, although other factors such as birth weight and sex also have an influence. The data have been drawn from the national database that gathers information on all babies born weighing less than 1.5 kilos.
  • Size at birth affects risk of adolescent mental health disorders

    17 Sep 2014 | 9:07 am
    Compelling support has been offered for the general evolutionary theory that birth weight and length can partially predict the likelihood of being diagnosed with mental health disorders such as autism and schizophrenia later in life. The study analyzed medical records of 1.75 million Danish births, and subsequent hospital diagnoses for up to 30 years, and adjusted for almost all other known risk factors.

  • Lactation linked to reduced estrogen receptor-negative, triple-negative breast cancer risk

    16 Sep 2014 | 8:29 am
    Women who have had children (parous women) appear to have an increased risk of developing estrogen receptor-negative breast cancer, the subtype that carries a higher mortality rate and is more common in women of African ancestry. A similar relationship was found for triple-negative breast cancer. However, the association between childbearing and increased risk of estrogen receptor-negative and triple-negative breast cancer was largely confined to the women who had never breastfed.

    With 3 little sisters, My son Alex is surrounded by pink and usually doesn't get a lot of super boyish things when it comes to communal supplies like reusable containers. I generally try to be somewhat neutral but things generally end up more girlish so he definitely lucked out for back to school this year. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! I loved TMNT when I was a kid so it's really fun to see them still jumping out of the sewers, the big screen and now in the kids lunch boxes. I also love Glad reusable containers.

    Because he’ll do it. You just have to call. I learned this fact in an article about the New York City’s first babies of 2014. One of the babies was Tenzin Choetso, a baby girl born to Tibetan Buddhist couple Metok Dolma (mom) and Dorjee Choetso (dad). She was born one second after midnight at Elmhurst Hospital in Queens. Tibetan Buddhists often ask lamas to suggest personal names, both for babies and for older people who simply want a name change. So the couple called the 14th Dalai Lama and put in a request (via one of his secretaries). He chose Tenzin, which happens to be his…
  • On the “Changed Nomenclature of Our Babies”

    Nancy Man
    18 Sep 2014 | 2:00 am
    An opinion about “modern names” from 1907: A very good guide, in the study of New England genealogy, is given by the Christian name. In some families, Simon, Stephen and Thomas may follow down the line of sons; while others carry only John, James and William. Genealogists have great confidence in this clue, for those Christian old worthies used to name their sons after themselves and their fathers. They had not evolved into the “Vernons” and “Cecils” and “Irvings” of now-a-days; these modern names which mean nothing but a morbid craving for the…
  • Unique Name Helps Adoptee Find Birth Family

    Nancy Man
    17 Sep 2014 | 2:00 am
    In 1886, a baby girl was born in Le Roy, Illinois. Her father was unknown and her mother Tiona died shortly after giving birth, “leaving the child the name of Tiona as her only inheritance.” Orphaned Tiona ended up in the Girls’ Industrial home in Bloomington, IL. This is where Mr. and Mrs. Joseph King of Bloomington found her a few years later. They adopted her. In 1903, when Tiona King was 16, the society column of a local paper mentioned that she had been hosting some friends from Chicago. Belle Craig, a Le Roy resident who happened to read the item, noted that the unique…

    A month after getting back from Dubai, my husband was off to Mexico City. There, he got me this cool necklace that spells Nancy in Mayan — or so he was told. Pendant that supposedly spells Nancy in Mayan That was the clearest shot I was able to get. Here’s the “alphabet” they used: Mayan “alphabet” I love the necklace — I’m wearing it now, in fact — but I’ve also determined that, sadly, this is not how Nancy would be written in Mayan. First, Mayan glyphs don’t represent individual letters. They represent Mayan syllables…
  • Another Baby Named for Pullman Car

    Nancy Man
    15 Sep 2014 | 2:00 am
    Found this in a 1889 newspaper: The boy baby born on C&A train 3 the other night has been christened Isaac Pullman Fisher, the first name in honor of the conductor Ike Wilcox, the second after Duke George Pullman, in whose car the little fellow first opened his eyes, at the rate of sixty miles and hour. Hopefully it was the train going 60 mph, not the boy’s eyelids. Source: “Tie Talk.” Galion Inquirer 22 Feb. 1889: 5. Other babies named for Pullman Cars: Livonia and Pullman Carr

In between chasing a three year-old and nursing a five month-old I’ve had to find time to write a wedding toast to my number one cutiefiles fan and sister Diana Freeburg.  As some of you oldtimers know, Diana was the first blogger in the family.  Luckily the blog has not been swallowed into the internet’s deep black belly of nothing and is still accessible to you and me.  It is before the time of links and photos and grams and hashtags, just one young 18 year-old writing to the world.  It starts off very deep, Nov 20…

I write this story as a survivor. That is what we parents of high need/colicky babies are; we are not only parents but we are survivors. My story starts off as many of yours does.

Instead, my face was slapped with a big dose of reality!! I noticed that Lili was “not…

Well, as with any major life change, becoming a mom can come with growing pains… and pretty tough ones at times. For me, it was the colic. The damn colic. My son didn’t sleep for about a year. Ok maybe longer. He’s 2.5 now and still wakes up in the middle of the night screaming. “He’ll outgrow the colic,” the doctors told me. “Most kids outgrow it by the three month mark.” He didn’t.

A friend gave me Mary Sheedy Kurcinka’s excellent book, Raising Your Spirited Child, and I couldn’t believe how spot on she was in describing my boy. I had previously discovered the term high need baby, but as Sammy was now moving toward toddlerhood, the term didn’t seem to fit. I loved the term spirited child, as I found it had a much more positive connotation than high need. It was also a term that people seemed to be quite familiar with (at least Sammy’s teachers…
