    Engineers and physicians have developed a smartphone application that checks for jaundice in newborns and can deliver results to parents and pediatricians within minutes. Skin that turns yellow can be a sure sign that a newborn is jaundiced and isn't adequately eliminating the chemical bilirubin. But that discoloration is sometimes hard to see, and severe jaundice left untreated can harm a baby.

I like to think long term for everything.

    Traveling with small children (toddlers, babies, newborns, zygotes) is sometimes a harrowing experience. I’m flying home from a wedding right now and in the seat behind me there is a 2 year old going berserk. His screams are pretty loud. This is every parent’s worst nightmare…having the screaming child – THAT child – on the airplane flight. When the baby started to scream, the father gave him a pretty quick and fairly sharp “Shhh!!.”  This made the toddler even more inflamed and he screamed. Louder. Much louder. Guess what the father did? He Shushed the boy even louder, so that…

    1914 illustration of ThumbelinaIn the Danish fairy tale “Tommelise” (1835) by Hans Christian Andersen, Tommelise is a tiny girl who has adventures with a toad, a butterfly, some stag beetles, a field mouse, a mole, a swallow, and finally a tiny prince. In the earliest English translations of “Tommelise” the main character is renamed Little Ellie, Little Totty, and Little Maja. It wasn’t until 1864 that translator Henry W. Dulcken came up with the name Thumbelina. (Both names, Tommelise and Thumbelina, were probably influenced by the name of folklore character Tom…
  • The Baby Name Omoo

    27 Aug 2014 | 2:00 am
    Herman Melville’s best-known book is Moby Dick (1851), but he did write other books. One of those other books is the semi-autobiographical Omoo: A Narrative of Adventures in the South Seas (1847). Melville defines “omoo” in the preface: The title of the work — Omoo — is borrowed from the dialect of the Marquesas Islands, where, among other uses, the word signifies a rover, or rather, a person wandering from one island to another, like some of the natives, known among their countrymen as “Taboo kannakers.” Believe it or not, I’ve found a handful…

    Today’s name interview is with Barry Brake, a 46-year-old from San Antonio, Texas. What’s the story behind his name? They were going to name me Brandon (or was it Brendan?) — one of the really trendy names of the late 60s. But a few months into it, a kid down the street was born and they named *him* Brendan, so my parents didn’t want 2 on the same block. It appeared to everyone that the name Barry came out of the blue. It’s not a family name or anything. But when I was an adult my mom told me something she’d never told me or anyone before, except my dad: that…

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

    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…

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…

  • Understanding Common Sleep Training Methods

    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…

    A funny (peculiar, not haha) thing about major media site RSS feeds is that not only are the feeds often little more than a plain text (and so kinda boring) sentence, but also that their RSS feeds tend to include thumbnail images as enclosures. Enclosures are the part of a feed typically used for podcast media files, and the problem with stashing an image as an enclosure is that most people won’t see it, since the picture isn’t part of the main content. As a result, the feed and downstream feed usage (e.g. email subscriptions) are much less engaging for us carbon based life…

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.

I had previously discovered the term high need baby, but as Sammy was now moving toward toddlerhood, the term didn’t seem to fit.
