    Swaddling infants is a common practice that many people choose to do to help their infant in the first few weeks of life. Parents might swaddle their newborns to help them rest easier at night, unawakened by their natural reflexes, or to help keep them warm until they’re better able to regulate their body temperature on their own, or even to simulate the secure feeling of the womb. Swaddling can have its benefits, however when you really look at the research, the long-term negative effects outweigh the good. It’s only when swaddling is done excessively, that it can damage the…

    Things in the Lachey household are starting to get hectic. With Nick and wife Vanessa‘s daughter due just after the holidays, the singer is counting down the days until they are officially a family of four. “I’m very excited to be a dad again,” Nick, 41, tells PEOPLE. “My dream in life has always been to have a family.

  • New study examines effect of timing of folic acid supplementation during pregnancy

    25 Nov 2014 | 5:58 pm
    Taking folic acid before conception significantly reduces the risk of small for gestational age at birth, suggests a new study. Folic acid supplementation has already been shown to reduce the risk of neural tube defects, such as spina bifida, and it is recommended for women to start folic acid supplementation pre-conceptually. However, uptake is low, state the authors, and previous studies have suggested rates of pre-conceptual uptake to be between 14.8% and 31%, with lower uptake in younger age groups and ethnic minorities.
  • Diagnosing deafness early will help teenagers' reading development

    25 Nov 2014 | 5:57 pm
    Deaf teenagers have better reading skills if they were identified as deaf by the time they were nine months old, research has shown. The research team has been studying the development of a group of children who were identified with permanent childhood hearing impairment (PCHI) at a very early age. Follow up assessments when the children were aged eight showed those who were screened at birth had better language skills than those children who were not screened.

    Extreme weather events, such as El Niño, can have long-lasting effects on health, according to research. The study, in coastal Peru, shows that children born during and after the 1997-98 El Niño have a lower height-for-age than others born before the event.
  • Preconception care for diabetic women could potentially save $5.5 billion

    24 Nov 2014 | 9:56 am
    Pregnant women with diabetes are at an increased risk for many adverse birth outcomes. Preconception care (PCC) can significantly lower these risks by helping pregnant mothers with diabetes control their glucose levels, resulting in healthier babies and less money spent on complicated deliveries and lifelong medical complications, researchers say, adding that this care could avert an estimated $5.5 billion in health expenditures and lost employment productivity over affected children's lifetimes.

  • An Organic Teether That You Can Snuggle & Chew {#Giveaway Alert}

    24 Nov 2014 | 2:01 pm
    If your baby loves snuggling with plush toys as well as chewing on them, the organic Waldorf Doll from Olives & Pickles might just be a winner (you may be too... keep reading for a giveaway). This snuggly soft square figured little guy is a wonderful shape for little hands not only to hold, but to curl up and fall asleep on. He's almost like a mini pillow. His knotted hand hold a 3” teether made with 100% untreated solid Beech wood. This is a clever attachment because it's easy to remove for washing or even adding other little toys, pacifiers, etc. Although he is hand washable, I like…

    How shocking it is for a baby to be born with four arms and four legs. The infant was born in Baruipur, India and has caused a stir in the environment because of his resemblance to the Hindu gods. “When he first came out we couldn’t believe it,” an unnamed relative told local TV. “The nurses said he was badly deformed, but I could see that this was a sign from God.” “In fact, this is a miracle, it’s God’s baby,” the relative said. For many Indians, however, God Boy’s condition is grounded in spirituality, not science.

    The baby name Tequila is a lot like the baby name Adidas. How? The baby name Tequila wasn’t popularized by the drink, just like the baby name Adidas wasn’t popularized by the shoe. Instead, they were both popularized by a song. In Tequila’s case, the song was “Tequila” by The Champs. “Tequila” was recorded rather offhandedly in December of 1957. It’s an instrumental except for the word tequila, spoken three times as “a silly attempt to cover up the holes in the song.” It was released as the B-side to “Train to Nowhere” by…

    Juliet by Philip H. CalderonEnglish actor Richard Burbage and English playwright William Shakespeare were close friends. So close that Burbage named his first daughter Juliet, very likely after the character from Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. So Juliet Burbage, who was born in 1608 and only lived a few months, could have been the first baby girl in history to be named after the famous character. Burbage and his wife Winifred also had children named Richard, Francis, Anne, Winifred, Julia (probably named in honor of her deceased older sister), William and Sara. Some speculate that Anne…

She wanted to pass that name on, and she gave it to me, not thinking I was going to be a runner or something.” Do you think the middle name “Running” made it more…

  • Introducing Inglesina Strollers!

    18 Nov 2014 | 6:16 am
    Stroller Envy is excited to at long last feature Inglesina strollers. I've personally tested the Swift, their lightest weight umbrella style and was so impressed that I knew I had to get around to researching all of them. Since Inglesina began, it has experienced steady growth. The initial 10 years of its existence produced the English-style pram only. But the 1970s, space exploration and evolving technology influenced production and the first modern stroller called the "Apollo" was produced. The eighties and nineties were about complementing the stroller line with accessories for infants.

  • Jeep Adventure Stroller Review

    29 Jun 2014 | 8:24 am
    Jeep has now come out with a hybrid jogger and all-terrain stroller, kind of like a much less expensive version of the Mountain Buggy Terrain. This type of jogging/all-terrain hybrid lets you lock the front wheel forward when you are ready to jog, giving you more stability at higher speeds than when the front wheel is locked backward for going over bumpy terrain. The Jeep Adventure jogging stroller is not lightweight; like most 3-wheelers, it's a bit large and weighs 31½ pounds. But the upside is that it holds up to 60 pounds, so you can take your child with you on your workouts until they…

    Time for my show. Today when we were driving to preschool Elena told me that she was Twilight Sparkle and Lucia was Pinkie Pie.  I am Rainbow Dash (yes!) and Papa is Apple Jack.  In case you hadn’t guessed, she has been watching a lot of My Little Pony.  Grandma is Rarity.  Diana is Princess Celestia, and Alex is the King.  Ragan is Fluttershy.  So that’s sorted. I figure there is only a small window of my life when I will know the names of all the My Little Ponies.  And I can actually appreciate Elena’s logic. My little alpaca.

    I’ve been wanting to write this blog post for two weeks.  And that is about how behind I am.  We came back from fiesta USA to rainy Bonn. We all had jetlag and now a cold for me and Elena. She started a new Spanish-German pre-school which means we are “settling in,” a.k.a 3 hour school day a.k.a I get nothing done. But Diana and Rafi’s wedding was every bit as glorious as expected.  We loved being in San Francisco, and I am still dreaming of Whole Foods. But before the big wedding weekend, we reunited with Luis and headed south to a tiny beach house in Santa…

    My sister has always been my champion.  In my early memories I remember not liking her that much because she was so cute that all my friends wanted to play with her instead of me.  But by the time I was about 15, I had gained hero status in her eyes and she would come in my room and organize my collections of art supplies and we would listen to Ani Di Franco.  I was always saving my Halloween candy, waiting for some unknown special occasion, and she would come in and eat it. I can tell you that over the years things have changed a lot. After Lucia was born last March she came to visit me…

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…

We sit on the deck in the evening as the sun sets and the air is delicious.

I run into parents who are really sticklers about no television for their kids. Others who are passionate about breast feeding and many who care deeply about foods/pesticides/organic/non GMOs for their children. All of these parents are crusaders – mothers and fathers who are fighting for what they believe is best for their children and other children as well.
