  • Anti-HIV medicines can cause damage to fetal hearts, research shows

    Infant's Health News -- ScienceDaily
    21 Nov 2014 | 11:12 am
    New research raises concern about potential long-term harmful impact of 'antiretroviral therapy' on in-utero infants whose mothers are HIV-positive, but who are not infected with HIV themselves. The study shows that while the HIV medications have been successful in helping to prevent the transmission of the virus from mother to infant, they are associated with persistently impaired development of heart muscle and reduced heart performance in non-HIV-infected children whose mothers received the medicines years earlier.

    I'm smitten with my share for today. It's part 2 of my Gifts Under $50 from Uncommon Goods and today's gift idea is for my kids. If you missed it, see my pick for hubby/dad here.

    [trib_ndn vid=28151916] PEACHTREE CORNERS, Ga. (AP) — Georgia police say they’ve charged a man and his 23-year-old daughter with murder in the starvation death of an infant. Gwinnett County Police said in a news release the man brought his 15-month-old daughter to the hospital but she was already dead. Police say the infant’s appearance led medical personnel to believe she was mistreated. At a motel in Peachtree Corners where the man was living, police found the infant’s mother, a 21-year-old woman weighing only 59 pounds. They also found three other children, ages 5, 3…

  • Research finds tooth enamel fast-track in humans

    20 Nov 2014 | 9:32 am
    Researchers have discovered a link between prenatal enamel growth rates in teeth and weaning in human babies. The research found that incisor teeth grow quickly in the early stages of the second trimester of a baby's development, while molars grow at a slower rate in the third trimester. This is so incisors are ready to erupt after birth, at approximately six months of age, when a baby makes the transition from breast-feeding to weaning.
  • Fathers' engagement with baby depends on mother

    19 Nov 2014 | 9:51 am
    Fathers’ involvement with their newborns depends on mothers’ preparation for parenthood, even for fathers who show the most parenting skills, a new study suggests. Researchers found that fathers who showed high levels of intuitive parenting were more involved than other fathers with their infants at 3 months of age -- but only if the mothers showed lower levels of intuitive parenting.
  • Taking antibiotics during pregnancy increases risk for child becoming obese

    18 Nov 2014 | 11:18 am
    A study just released by Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health found that children who were exposed to antibiotics in the second or third trimester of pregnancy had a higher risk of childhood obesity at age 7. The research also showed that for mothers who delivered their babies by a cesarean section, whether elective or non-elective, there was a higher risk for obesity in their offspring.

    We are that family that decorates pretty intensely for the holidays. All the way down to the outdoor entry light colors. We change the outdoor bulbs each Halloween & Christmas (orange, black red or green to match the season). My hubby gets a little obsessive when it comes to decorating for the holidays and I fully encourage it. But it takes him forever so I love cool, time/money saver gadgets like these colored light bulb covers called Moodies. When our Moodies arrived, I was thrilled. These little things are fantastic.

    We, as childcare providers, should be regularly keeping up with our CPR and first aid techniques. The guidelines are always changing. Plus, it’s easy to forget what to do in a dire situation. It helps to have these guidelines always in the back of your mind. I decided to do a little brushing up today and found these awesome quizzes on the American Red Cross website. http://www.redcrossrefresher.com/q/first-aid-cpr-and-aed/choices/ Quiz yourself and see how well you do, you could be surprised at what you might have forgotten since you took your last CPR class!
  • Is it safe to continue breastfeeding if I'm pregnant with another child?

    womanPlace
    15 Nov 2014 | 11:38 am
    Many mothers choose to continue breastfeeding throughout pregnancy, while others decide to wean. The following information may help you decide what is best for you and your family. Generally, it’s possible to safely continue breast-feeding while pregnant — as long as you’re careful about eating a healthy diet and diligently drinking plenty of fluids. There’s an important caveat, however. Breast-feeding can trigger mild uterine contractions. Although these contractions aren’t a concern during an uncomplicated pregnancy, your health care provider may discourage…

And when you’re young and sixteen, you think – “Hah! Sure.

When you can’t tell the difference in a photograph and a piece of art, why not use a camera? That’s what I do… I’m a photographer artist.

The product was initially marketed as a dandruff-removing, hair-growing “scalp tonic.” Advertisements featured women with floor-length hair alongside the tagline, “Danderine Grows Hair and We Can Prove It.” Around 1920, though, positioning shifted and Danderine started being sold as a “beauty tonic.” After a “Danderine” massage, your hair takes on new life, lustre and wondrous beauty, appearing twice as heavy and plentiful. Each hair seems to fluff and thicken at once. So have any babies…

So has anyone in the U.S. ever been named Brilliantine? Yes, I’ve found over a dozen Brilliantines in the U.S. so far, including: Brilliantine Davis (née Tidwell), 1907-1989. Brilliantine V.

  • 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.
  • New Baby Jogger and Joovy Strollers

    10 Nov 2014 | 9:05 am
    Baby Jogger and Joovy have some great new strollers either already available or soon to come. In a recent article I wrote for Savvy Sassy Moms, Baby Jogger has three new strollers to offer. Pictured above is the City Lite, a more compact version of the City Mini. It weighs slightly less and has different size wheels. The City Mini Zip is the most compact in the City Mini line of Baby Jogger strollers and coming in Spring 2015 is the Vue Lite, a more lightweight and simplified version of the Vue. Joovy has some new strollers that have been available for awhile now, but have not been updated on…

    The Revolution is designed with the outdoors and the different types of terrain in mind. It is also designed with YOU in mind, whether you'd like to go jogging one day or take your baby on a nature walk on the trail the next. BOB realizes that all kinds of parents love the functionality of the Revolution, so they've come up with FOUR different versions of this popular model, the SE (Sport Edition), the CE (City Edition) and the new BOB Revolution Flex and Pro. What are the differences among them all? The differences are small, and you will discover what makes each one unique and how one would…
  • Jeep Cherokee Sport Stroller Updated

    22 Sep 2014 | 5:47 am
    For busy parents, the Jeep Cherokee Sport is ideal for quick trips. The Cherokee Sport is a high quality product that weighs only 13 pounds and has an easy one-hand compact fold that stands on its own. For kids, the Cherokee Sport has a multi-position seat recline, adjustable sun canopy and snack tray. A 3-point quick release buckle keeps your kiddo safe, yet allows freedom of movement. This lightweight baby stroller holds up to 35 pounds. A generous storage basket and two removable cargo bags along with two parent cup holders and organization tray keep parents happy. Not many lightweight…
  • 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…
  • A wedding toast, to my sister

    20 Sep 2014 | 2:30 pm
    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…

    The flower girl gets a special present at the rehearsal. 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…

    Hello from Seattle! It’s Lucia’s first visit to cutiefiles homeland and we’re having a great time at Grandma’s house. There is no place better than Seattle in August. We sit on the deck in the evening as the sun sets and the air is delicious. Elena spent two weeks learning some American customs at SportBall camp – a genius franchise that takes the best of drills for sports like Hockey, Volleyball, Soccer, Football, and Golf and combines them with story telling.

    Yesterday I shared some adorable Christmas gift ideas for baby boys so today it’s the turn of baby girls.  I love putting lists like this together because there is so much adorable stuff out there for babies but that makes it difficult to choose just ten things.  This guide is more of a flavour of the types of things you can give like cozy clothes, sweet musical toys, or even gorgeous bath toys.  I hope you like the selections: 1. baby rabbit night light | 2. floating duck bath toys | 3. two-tone baby socks | 4. soft toy doll | 5. animal mittens and hat | 6. popcorn sweater | 7.

I want to share an experience that I had picking a child to sponsor from the Angel Tree in Walmart.  I sponsor a child from either Walmart or Kmart each year, but I choose to walk away last year without purchasing a gift.   Why?

    Melissa Zdrodowski

    Image courtesy of Serge Bertasius Photography at FreeDigitalPhotos.net There are parents who are passionate about lots of things. 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. And I respect them greatly even if our opinions differ. Continue reading No Rest for My Daycare…
