  • Lack of folic acid enrichment in Europe causes mortality among fetuses

    Infant's Health News -- ScienceDaily
    28 Aug 2015 | 7:22 am
    A new international study shows that 5,000 fetuses in Europe annually are affected by spina bifida and other severe defects on the central nervous system. Seventy percent of these pregnancies are terminated, while increased mortality and serious diseases affect the children who are born. At least half of the cases can be avoided by adding folic acid to staple foods as is already being done in 70 non-European countries.

    This bronzed beauty deserves the gold. Kim Kardashian West, 34, opted for a bronze string bikini for yet another day of family fun in St. Barths on Aug. 18, where she was spotted showing off her baby belly while walking along the sandy shore.

  • Cervical pessary does not reduce the rate of preterm births or neonatal complications in twin gestations

    27 Aug 2015 | 11:20 am
    Having twins accounts for only 1.5% of all births but 25% of preterm births, the leading cause of infant mortality worldwide. Successful strategies for reducing singleton preterm births include prophylactic use of progesterone and cervical cerclage in patients with a prior history of preterm birth. To investigate whether the use of a cervical pessary might reduce premature births of twins, an international team of researchers conducted a large, multicenter, international randomized clinical trial (RCT) of approximately 1200 twin pregnancies. They report that placement of a cervical pessary…

    In the largest paediatric cardiac arrest study to date, a team of researchers found that survival was the highest, especially among teens, with 10 to 35 minutes on the scene in the care and under the treatment of paramedics. The study also found that improved survival was associated with intravenous access and fluid administration, whereas advanced airway attempts and resuscitation drugs were not.
  • Opioid receptor gene variations associated with neonatal abstinence syndrome severity

    25 Aug 2015 | 11:13 am
    A new study indicates that variations in opioid receptor genes are associated with more severe neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS) in newborn babies. The findings could help lead to the development of individualized treatment plans tailored to each infants' risk of requiring medication to curb their NAS symptoms, which could help improve these patients' outcomes and reduce how long some stay in the hospital.

    On TooLoud Seal of Approval Infant TShirt If you prefer purchasing the infant only seats due to size and/or convenience, you will still need to get a second seat when your infant outgrows the first seat (over 22 lbs for most infant only seats). You can purchase a forward facing toddler seat, or you can purchase a convertible infant car seat. Purchasing a convertible seat will allow you to keep your infant in the safer rear facing position longer (generally about an extra 10 lbs), but still allow you to have the forward facing seat.

You might wonder why I listed convention there if you’ve never been to a good convention before, but let me explain. Ever since I started homeschooling in 2001, I have been going to a convention – almost…

    Here’s the fourth batch of intriguing female names I found in old issues of Photoplay: Naturitch Naturitch (sometimes written Nat-U-Ritch) was played by actress Red Wing (real name: Lillian St. Cyr) in the silent film The Squaw Man (1914), but the name Naturitch has never appeared on the SSA’s list. Naturitch, Photoplay, Jan. of 1919 The Squaw Man is notable for two reasons: it was the first feature-length movie filmed in Hollywood specifically, and it was also the first film to be directed by Cecil B. DeMille. Quirentia Actress Anna Q. Nilsson, middle name Quirentia, appeared in…

    In 2008, the Scott Polar Research Institute (part of the University of Cambridge) organized a competition to give a proper name to Antarctic iceberg C‑19A. The enormous iceberg was initially code-named C‑19, as it was the 19th iceberg observed by the U.S. National Ice Center to calve from the “C” quadrant of the continent. In 2003, C‑19 split into two pieces: C‑19A (the bigger piece) and C‑19B (the smaller piece). The competition was open to kids between the ages of 3 and 12. It attracted about 500 entrants. The winning name came from 6-year-old Max…
  • Mystery Monday: The Baby Name Bisceglia

    Nancy Man
    24 Aug 2015 | 2:00 am
    The baby name Bisceglia debuted on the SSA’s list in 1979 and stuck around for 3 more years: 1983: unlisted 1982: 6 baby girls named Bisceglia 1981: 7 baby girls named Bisceglia 1980: 5 baby girls named Bisceglia 1979: 8 baby girls named Bisceglia [debut] 1978: unlisted According to records, many of these baby Bisceglias were born in the South. The name must come from the Italian surname Bisceglia [be-SHAYL-yah], which refers to the town of Bisceglie in southern Italy, but I have no idea what boosted the surname onto the baby name charts in 1979. The closest I’ve got to a proper…

    Latest Updates from Stroller-Envy | Best Baby Strollers Blog

  • Inglesina Net Addition

    21 Aug 2015 | 1:11 pm
    A newer stroller in the Inglesina line is the lightweight umbrella called the Net. It has a nicely padded seat and when you take off the seat pad, it's all mesh fabric, so your child will be comfortable and cool in the hot weather. Perfect for summer time family trips and holidays! The Inglesina Net has gotten some fabulous feedback so far, like the convenient one-handed self-standing fold and for the carry strap so you can throw it over your shoulder. It's a very popular choice to take on trips, and in the summary, I'll show you a video review with a mom who took hers on a trip to Las Vegas…

    Combi has made some changes in recent months, and I've finally gotten those changes reflected on Stroller Envy. First, Combi's come out with several new strollers like the Fold N Go you see pictured. It's comperable with the Baby Jogger City Mini and Britax B-Agile, but with four wheels. The Fold N Go also comes as a double. Another new Combi stroller is their featherlight F2, which weighs under nine pounds and has a sleek design. I especially like the sun canopy and the different colors it comes in. Discover more about each of these new models on the updated Combi strollers main page. Other…
  • Updated Baby Trend Expedition Review

    11 Jun 2015 | 6:37 am
    This is a great stroller for taking brisk walks in the park and while it is the most basic model of the Baby Trend 3-wheelers, it is also the most popular. Parents recommend the Expedition for the affordable price and the sporty look. Most parents who get this stroller are not serious runners or avid joggers, but they do like getting out for brisk walks. The swivel feature on the front tire is a must for maneuverability, but for those who do prefer to jog, then the front tire can lock straight for stability during the ride. The Expedition is also popular as a travel system. The Expedition has…
  • Kolcraft All Terrain Adventure Stroller Review

    2 Jun 2015 | 6:41 am
    As you might know, Jeep strollers are no more, but the exciting news is that Kolcraft has taken the same product and improved on it. This particular stroller used to be the Jeep Liberty, but the Jeep brand, owned by Kolcraft, was discontinued. Kolcraft has decided to move these products over to their brand and improve upon the performance by adding precision ball bearings and better wheels for superior performance. Because this is a new product there are little to no reviews as of the time of this writing. The reviews and research for you here are based on the classic Jeep Liberty, but with…
  • Kolcraft Replaces Jeep Strollers

    11 May 2015 | 9:44 am
    Jeep strollers are no more! I loved the Jeep brand for strollers, and the main stroller I used with my son is the classic Jeep Liberty all terrain three-wheeler. Yes, I'm partial because I used it for my own baby. Now they are gone. But their design remains, and Kolcraft, the company who owned the Jeep brand, has basically renamed the Jeep strollers and added a few more features, and taken away some. For example, the nifty little cargo bags mounted on the sides of the Liberty, Cherokee and Wrangler models (I'd keep a diaper or two in mine) are not included with the new Kolcraft versions.

    It is very hot in Germany: 38 degrees or 87 F. After a crazy morning of painting a secret present for Papa, we went to lunch with the abuelos at the biergarten. Elena has already told Luis what the surprise is three times even though I told her not to. After arriving in Bonn after four weeks in the US, everyone except Lucia promptly got sick for one week. We are all still coughing. We returned to find that caterpillars have eaten all the bushes in our garden. I bought a sunflower, and within two days they ate that too. There is a plague in my yard and I don’t know what to do. My I-phone…

    Lucia is now one and she does not want me to blog. Or if I do, it must be only with one hand while I hold her. She got sick on Friday, and but we went and had the party anyway on Saturday. Her teething is the worst it has ever been, so I couldn’t put her down today and Elena took the opportunity to give herself a hair cut. You did what?! I think this was inspired by her theatre debut as a Spinnen in “Unter Guerillas,” a live, big band dance show in St. Augustin. We went to two dress rehearsals this week, and Elena even wore lipstick! (She was supposed to wear mascara, but…

    Saturday morning random thoughts: This is sleeping in.  I awake at 8am to someone hovering over me breathing loudly. “Elena, go get the I-pad”. One hour more of sleep, then banana waffles, dance party, and by 12:37 the house is thoroughly trashed.  This weekend we have to do volunteer hours for Carousel, Elena’s preschool, so I will spend four of my “free” hours cleaning the gymnasium. Lucia is a “kleine crabbler” and she is fast. Her favorite thing is to stand up in her high chair which is totally death-defying. Lucia in the basket with Ella. Elena…

How many exclamation points can one blog handle?  And, I must say, it is a lot for one mama to handle as well.  I just learned that the U.S. Ambassador to the Security Council, one of my personal heroes, Samantha Power, has two small children.  When she was confirmed by the Senate, she had a 14-month old.  Talk about having it all: can you imagine negotiating a ceasefire in Syria after a long night of teething? Absolutely not. I can’t say the last two months have been easy. Luis was in Peru for COP20 for most of December, and before that he…

    Thanksgiving!  A great holiday, and one that for the last six years has been challenged by the climate change convention.  It always is the case that the Friday after T-day, Luis has to fly across the world to work his butt off with a bunch of governments who can’t agree on the future of our planet.  Grand bargain aside, it messes up a perfectly good holiday.   We threw a party anyway, and now that I am on my own for almost three weeks with the girls, my turkey leftovers seem limitless. I am going on three days now and still am not tired of them. Take me with you! So, on the big…

But buying diapers isn’t cheap.If you are on a budget then buying disposable diapers feels like this: But your baby doesn’t care, he just stares at you with that smug little face, oblivious to the fact that he is literally pooping your money away (or maybe he does know, but simply doesn’t care, cheeky thing).

So with all this differing opinion, how do you determine the best laundry detergent to use?

This is all well and good as it is the safest way for a young baby to travel. The problem is that when you look through your rear view mirror you cannot see your baby. The back of the car seat completely blocks your view! I am not the most rational mother at the best of times and not being able to see my baby made me incredibly anxious. This was a particular problem on my car trips, where my baby would fall asleep. My mind would always wander to the worst case…

    Long car journeys can be so, so boring! As adults, we often start getting fidgety around hour two of a long journey. So imagine how bored our little ones must be! We cross our fingers that they will sleep through it but how often does that actually happen? Instead of listening to a chorus of, “Are we there yet?” coming from the backseat, we need to get creative and keep our kids entertained. Keeping our kids engaged and entertained will go a long way to keeping the tantrums down and the smiles bigger. Check out some of our favourite car games for kids that the whole family can…

    3 Aug 2015 | 3:00 am
    I had to learn the hard way when it came to choosing the right pediatrician. Before my son was born and I had to fill out my hospital paperwork, I had to have a doctor already lined up. This would be the doctor that would assess him in the hospital, perform his circumcision, and conduct his future follow up wellness visits. “No big deal,” I thought. “I’ll just pick one-they are all certified and pretty much the same.” Big mistake. While I didn’t have a horrible experience, I didn’t have the best one either. You can have a much easier time (and transition) than I did-here’s…
