  • Effect on pregnancy of receiving antiretroviral therapy for prevention of HIV

    19 Jul 2014 | 1:35 pm
    Among heterosexual African couples in which the male was HIV positive and the female was not, receipt of antiretroviral pre-exposure preventive (PrEP) therapy did not result in significant differences in pregnancy incidence, birth outcomes, and infant growth compared to females who received placebo, according to a study.
  • New trigger for ovulation could make IVF safer

    18 Jul 2014 | 6:49 pm
    A new and potentially safer method to stimulate ovulation in women undergoing IVF treatment has been developed by researchers. Twelve babies have been born after their mothers were given an injection of the natural hormone kisspeptin to make their eggs mature. Doctors normally administer another hormone, hCG, for this purpose, but in some women, there is a risk that this can overstimulate the ovaries, with potentially life-threatening consequences.
  • How does working part-time versus working full-time affect breastfeeding goals?

    17 Jul 2014 | 6:49 am
    While many women intend to breastfeed despite returning to work, a new study finds that mothers who plan to breastfeed for at least three months but return to work full-time are less likely to meet their breastfeeding goals. Conversely, there is no association between women who return to work part-time and failure to reach the breastfeeding goal of at least three months.
  • Measuring nurture: Study shows how 'good mothering' hardwires infant brain

    17 Jul 2014 | 6:45 am
    By carefully watching nearly a hundred hours of video showing mother rats protecting, warming, and feeding their young pups, and then matching up what they saw to real-time electrical readings from the pups’ brains, researchers have found that the mother’s presence and social interactions -— her nurturing role -— directly molds the early neural activity and growth of her offsprings’ brain.

    My little one is sleeping in so I get to blog for the first time in ages. Today is also the last day of school for my 3 older kids. The panic of end of the year organizing is kicking in.

    23 Apr 2014 | 12:42 pm
    I was browsing one of my latest decor and design addictions, Houzz, and stumbled upon the profile of the blogger & Etsy seller design attractor/ReStyle. I am swooning over the bright colors and eames era inspired prints from graphic designer Jan Skácelík. We've been moving our three girls around in their rooms recently and turquoise is the go-to color for the ex-nusery/soon-to-be new tween room. She's not a retro girl herself but as long as I stay away from light pink and baby things, she'd be tickled turquoise. I collect mid-century modern miniature chairs so the La Chaise caught my…
  • The Brownie Who Ate Daddy's Grilled Cheese & Earned A Patch

    23 Apr 2014 | 9:34 am
    My 8 year old daughter is in Girl Scouts. She really enjoys it and goes to almost all the troop meetings and outings. But you couldn't tell her total participation from her vest. I'm not sure if it's because I am behind sewing patches on, missed a million emails about GS events or maybe the patches just fell off. Poor GG. Her vest has about half as many fun patches as the rest of her brownie troop. And this is the last year. So I did a little creative problem solving to replace a few lost/maybe never sewn on badges plus got to support a fantastic blog. I honestly have no idea about the rules…
  • Stuff The Stuffed Animals (Part 3)

    11 Apr 2014 | 5:00 am
    Update: I've always loved these white wire baskets for stuffed animals but not so much the prices. At my latest trip to Target, I found them for under $20. I don't see them online though so you'll have to pack up the kids and head out to see if your local Target has them. Crate & Barrel also doesn't sell them anymore so I've update the link below for an alternative from Land of Nod. They actually have several colors besides white so a great find! Looking for stuffed animal or toy storage that is a little more subtle? While I love decorative storage, something that blends into the…

I enjoy discussing movies after we see them and have come to a place with my mature teens (17 and 15) that we can discuss themes in movies that are adult in nature. My 15 year old has toyed with the idea of being a singer-songwriter, so we decided to take the PR company for Begin Again up on their offer to let us come see and review Keira Knightley’s latest flick.

My name is a skip-generational name, I was named after my maternal grandmother, who was named after her grandmother. The originator was one of a set of orphaned twins. Apparently people were very creative with names in Sicily back then because she was Vincenza and he Vincenzo. Family rumor has it that she traveled to the US with his documentation (he had passed away). But mostly, according to my mom, I was given the name because “it was pretty.” What does…
  • 40 Pairs of Baby Names for Girl-Boy Twins

    21 Jul 2014 | 2:00 am
    A few weeks ago, The Stir posted a list of 20 pairs of baby names for girl-boy twins. The problem with their list? Each matchy-matchy name-pair started with the same first letter. Yes, most parents gravitate toward patterns when it comes to naming twins. This has been confirmed by at least one study and is easy to see when you peruse the (now discontinued) lists of popular twin names. But should they? No. Child development experts say twins should have dissimilar first names. So I thought I’d improve upon their list by separating the pairings and giving each of the 40 names a new,…

Drene, the first shampoo to use synthetic detergent instead of soap, had been introduced by Procter & Gamble in 1934. So the product had been on the market for more than a decade by the mid-1940s. What drew people’s attention to Drene in 1946 specifically, then? “Drene Time,” a late-night radio variety show sponsored by Procter & Gamble. The 30-minute program, which…

    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…
  • New Maclaren Mark II Umbrella Stroller

    17 Jun 2014 | 7:01 am
    The engineers and designers at Maclaren were inspired to revisit their past and look again at the original umbrella stroller design from the mid 1960s. They updated the look, and with using today's more advanced materials, they redesigned that original stroller into the new Maclaren Mark II. This little stroller weighs only 7.3 pounds, just a tad more than the original, which came in at 6 pounds. And yet the Mark II holds your child up to 55 pounds! That a stroller can weigh so little hand hold so much is astounding! While there aren't that many reviews for this stroller yet, the ratings are…
  • BOB Motion Stroller Review

    27 May 2014 | 11:28 am
    I never thought I'd see the day when BOB would make a light weight 4-wheel stroller, but here it is. It is called the Motion. The Motion is your "everyday stroller" for parents who like the rugged durability of a BOB with the lighter weight and compact size. Parents who own jogging strollers find them cumbersome to take out on errands and this is where the new Motion comes in handy. While there aren't that many reviews for this stroller yet, the ratings are mostly 4 and 5 stars, citing the compact fold, easy assembly, huge sun canopy, smooth ride and quality materials.

  • New Reversing Seat Umbrella Stroller

    6 May 2014 | 6:38 am
    Baby Jogger has always been an innovative company - they were the first to invent that Quick Fold technology that other stroller brands have since copied. Now they've done it again by creating the first reversing seat umbrella stroller! In just a few seconds, the seatback pushes forward and then you have a way for your child to sit and see you when they are little. Once they are bigger and ready to explore the world, then move the seatback in the other direction for your child to face outward. Baby Jogger Vue is a hefty umbrella stroller, weighing in at just over 21 pounds, but it needs to be…
  • Baby Jogger Double Strollers

    16 Apr 2014 | 5:59 am
    Baby Jogger was established in 1984 by Phil Baechler, a local newspaper journalist. Wanting to spend more time with his infant son, he took his son jogging with him, but in his regular stroller. Baechler quickly learned that standard strollers were not meant to handle the rigors of a jogging speed, and so he designed a specialized stroller equipped to take the stress of running. Each Baby Jogger double stroller is designed with a parents' needs and children's comfort and safety in mind. From the stylish stroller design with functional, high performance wheels and suspension system to the…

  • Happy Mother’s day times two

    11 May 2014 | 2:09 pm
    Mother’s day is extra great with a new baby.  Time is going so fast, Lucia is about six weeks and has outgrown all her newborn clothes.  She is almost ten pounds now and is already wearing size three months. Lucia tries on auntie Diana’s old dress. Elena greeted me at 8am with a giant bouquet of flowers. “Happy Birthday! You are three already.  Chocolate and flowers, I went to the grocery store.”  I had to force myself to wake up to convince her not to eat the chocolates. Then she brought me an empty mint box with a green ribbon in it, “It’s a…

    1. Crave Molasses cookies for one week. Tell Elena we’re baking cookies, she says “Let’s do the making.” Feed baby. 2. Find recipe on I-phone. Thanks Martha.  Bring baby bed into kitchen, put baby in. 3. Take butter out of fridge.  Try to guess equivalent of grams to 1 1/2 sticks (we’re in Europe here).  Tell Elena to cut butter into pieces.  Elena cuts one piece, drops butter.  Baby cries. 4. Look for Papa.  He is asleep. Get Moby wrap, strap on baby. 5. Elena runs to get eggs out of fridge, prevent her from dropping them onto floor. 6. Mix dry ingredients…

    The morning after I wrote the “Waiting for Lucia” post I woke up rested, oddly at peace.  Lucia came later that Friday.  Poor Luis had been working around the clock that week to meet a deadline for the 20th anniversary of the climate change convention (UNFCCC) entering into force.  He met his Friday deadline, but did not get a chance to rest. Lucia was born that evening. She came much quicker than Elena’s epic 33 hours, we did not even have time to have an epidural.  It was no picnic, but she was there before I could believe it.  More like a scene from the movies than…

    Lucia’s due date is Saturday. It’s a strange time. You stand on the threshold, waiting to cross over, unsure how long you will be waiting. You can’t make plans other than doctor’s appointments.  Tomorrow the astrology sign moves from Pisces to Aries.  I always have had many Aries in my life.  We will have a house full of fire signs. Today was an odd 24 degree day in March and I went out for coffee with a friend.  I have to walk very slow. I’ve been invited to a luncheon tomorrow, but I honestly don’t know what to wear.  Even my pregnant clothes are too…

  • Understanding Common Sleep Training Methods

    Melissa Zdrodowski
    10 Jul 2014 | 11:07 am
    Your baby isn’t born knowing how to sleep through the night. Sleeping through the night is an acquired skill, one we need to teach our children, once they are old enough (4-6 months or more). What exactly is sleep teaching? Our recent blog outlines the basics. The most important factor in sleep teaching is consistency. There are many methods you could use, but the key is to find the one that you can use consistently. Consider these factors: Age of the child (older children often take longer to adapt) Temperament of the child (Is your child stimulated or calmed by your presence? Is he…

    My daughter’s school has a cute tradition. At the end of the school year, all the kindergarteners have a sleepover at the school with just the teachers (no parents!). This is the first time for many of them to be sleeping away from their own beds and their parents. Our teachers are very brave (or very crazy!). The kids really look forward to it all year. But as a parent, I was a little worried. Some parents worried about leaving their kids for the first time, or getting the dreaded midnight call to come pick up their home-sick child, but I was worried about my daughter not getting enough…

I remember when our youngest (now 8-months-old) was about 4 months – I had moved her into her own room and was still using the baby monitor. I was being woken up frequently throughout the night – not only when she needed to be fed and cried but also when she was…

We’ve all heard the stories: days of enduring hours-upon-hours of screaming followed by perfect sleep, or the ones about the parents who still haven’t gotten a decent night’s sleep after more than a year, and even the tales of those seemingly mythical children who have no sleep troubles at all and just start sleeping through the night without fuss at a few months old. “What will our fate be?” new parents wonder.

In a recent blog, I wrote about the challenges of transitioning out of a swaddle blanket. Our babies really slept noticeably better when they are swaddled, so the thought of having them OUT of the swaddle and just in a sleep sack made me extremely nervous. It seemed cruel to have my daughters go straight from feeling like they were back in the…

    Let’s be honest, on the ladder of trustworthiness, search engine consultants fall somewhere between lawyers and members of Congress. But nobody seeks us out at parties for our stories or makes Netflix shows set in the world of SEO. No, instead you have two choices when it comes to SEO. You’re either the nerdy Poindexter, sitting alone at his computer, muttering about meta descriptions and H1 tags, or worse, a snake oil salesman, promising the world that if you’ll just spend thousands of dollars on some magic formula that never quite seems to be finished, you’ll win the Internet.

    I first learned about the term ‘spirited child’ when my Sammy was just about a year old. 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…
