    Neonatal intestinal disorders that prevent infants from getting the nutrients they need may be caused by defects in the lysosomal system -- or cell recycling center -- that occur before weaning. Scientists provide a new target for research and future therapies to help infants unable to absorb milk nutrients and gain weight.

    I’ll be honest: sleep training is a bitch. Letting my baby cry alone in his crib with nothing to soothe him but a sound machine lamb tightly secured to the crib slats and a night light seems so cruel to me. Watching him cry and writhe about on the video monitor is even worse. But (and there is a but) it works. And the sleep you both get as a result is well worth it. At my little one’s six month check up, his pediatrician told me that I have to let my baby learn to sleep on his own, without the aid of my breast or rocking or me laying next to him, now or he will never be a good…

    How does Drew Barrymore know she’s a great mom? The actress, who appears on the cover of More magazine’s February issue, credits her difficult childhood with teaching her to be a better mother. “I didn’t really have parents, you know?” Barrymore, 39, says. “And therefore the kind of parent I will be is a good, present parent.” She adds: “In a way, maybe that was a detriment to my youth, but it’ll be the biggest asset to my adulthood.” Ellen von Unwerth/MORE Magazine Barrymore — who is mom to Olive, 2, and Frankie, 9 months…

  • Unlocking the kidney riddle in newborns

    27 Jan 2015 | 8:14 am
    Researchers are closer to understanding why babies born with smaller kidneys have a high risk of developing cardiovascular disease. Currently, renal disorders at birth affect about one in 500 babies. Many of these babies go on to lead healthy normal lives, however 20-40 per cent will develop chronic kidney disease and high blood pressure. Unfortunately, these conditions are the main cause of end-stage kidney disease and the need for dialysis in children.

  • Lifting Gay Marriage Ban Allows Lesbian Couple To Be Parents

    WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — The lifting of a gay marriage ban in Florida is giving a Palm Beach County infant the right to call both women in a lesbian couple her parents. A Palm Beach County judge on Wednesday ruled that both Lisa Maxwell and Christine Stephens-Maxwell are the parents of 7-week-old Satori. Satori was born last month after Christine became pregnant through in-vitro fertilization. The couple had married in New York in 2012. Florida law recognizes that a baby born to a married couple from in-vitro fertilization is the child of both husband and wife. But Circuit Judge Lisa…

Here are Italy’s top 10 girl names and top 10 boy names of 2013: Girl Names Boy Names 1. Sofia 2. Giulia 3. Aurora 4. Emma 5. Giorgia 6. Martina 7. Chiara 8. Sara 9.

    From Michael Ende, author of The Neverending Story: Nur der richtige Name gibt allen Wesen und Dingen ihre Wirklichkeit. Der falsche Name macht alles unwirklich. Translation: Only the right name gives beings and things their reality. The wrong name makes everything unreal. (Discovered on my never-ending quest to figure out how Ende coined Atreyu.) From a late 1879 issue of Notes and Queries: I have met a boy named Washington christened General George, a girl named Togotubuline, and, still more extraordinary, a boy called Wonderful Counsellor (from Isaiah ix. 6).

  • Mountain Buggy Nano Stroller Review

    22 Dec 2014 | 6:33 am
    Continuing the trend of the way of lighter weight, more urban stroller products, Mountain Buggy introduces us to the ultra-convenient Nano. Parents, if you travel by air you know what a pain it is just getting there, boarding, and departing. Dealing with a cumbersome stroller and tending your child makes it even more difficult. This is where the new Mountain Buggy Nano steps in. The easy two-step fold on this lightweight stroller compacts it down to a size accepted by most airlines for carry on luggage. Pop it into the overhead bin and you're good to go. One easy flick opens it again once you…

  • 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.

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.

    We all love a bit of comfy, soft clothing to wear at home.  I often wear a pair of leggings with a striped t-shirt or a chunky sweater when I’m lounging around on a Sunday.  When Anya comes home from school the first thing she does is uniform off and some leggings and a tee on.  On top of this will go all kinds of crazy dressing up gear but underneath it’s stuff that doesn’t restrict and feels good against the skin. While I’m all for comfy, I also want us to be able to slip on a pair of boots and a coat and step out in whatever we’re  wearing.  For everyday…

    A couple of years ago for Anya’s birthday, Richard and I thought that she would love a dolls house so we decided to make one as that is so much more personal than buying one.  Richard painstakingly made the dolls house out of some wood he bought, we ordered wallpaper samples to line the walls and we even made teeny tiny furniture from bits of wood and small toy blocks.  We had my mum-in-law knit mini blankets and we made little cushions and pillows from foam and fabric scraps.  Because it was going to be a surprise for Anya, we did most of the creating at night, often staying up till…

    Ever since Anya started school I’ve missed her a lot while she’s out (but of course I enjoy the quiet working time too).  It’s dawned on me that she spends so much time at school and that’s a whole chunk of her life I will miss out on – oh how I wish I could be a fly on the wall!  Since that’s not happening, the best I can do is to really chat to her about her day but up until recently when I asked her questions I was only getting answers like ‘I don’t know’ or ‘I can’t remember’ or ‘I’m hungry’. …

    One of my goals for 2105 is to get healthy. As 2014 was rolling out and 2015 rolling in, I thought about how I would accomplish this goal. I knew I was done with fad diets and the prepacked diet programs. I had tried several of them over the course of the years, and I was not successful on any. I knew the first step toward my goal to get healthy was accepting the fact that it would require a lifestyle change. It's funny how things work out, I was contacted shortly thereafter and asked to join Great Grains and the Fad Free pledge. I gladly accepted, it had never worked for me anyway.

  • The Benefits of Family Meals

    Do you eat as a family? Research has shown that there are benefits to eating together as a family. I believe it. When I was raising my daughter, I made it a point to prepare a meal and we sit at the table as a family. Sometimes it would breakfast, but the majority of the time it was dinner. I used it as an opportunity to discuss the events of the day, and to exchange other pertinent information. I remember my daughter having a guest one week-end. We decided to order pizza. When the pizza arrived, her guest opened the box to have a slice. I explained to her friend that we didn't eat out of the…

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…

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.

    One of the joys of being in a small, tightly knit company like FeedBlitz is that, as colleagues, we grow close to each other.  We share our triumphs and joys; and we circle the wagons when the going gets tough. In reality, on balance, 2014 was more tough than not for the FeedBlitz crew. Of course, like any community, we don’t often share the hard times publicly.  We struggle, we manage, we support each other, and with luck nobody on the outside notices. Nothing unusual, really, in that. There are, however, some things — even the tougher ones — that are very much worth…
