    What to Do If Breastfeeding Is Really Hard

    What to Do If Breastfeeding Is Really Hard

    Breast milk is undeniably best from a totally medical view. But thank goodness we have formula! Some moms choose not to breastfeed and others can’t for medical reasons. The decision to breastfeed or not is less black and white for another group of moms—brand new mothers who want to nurse but struggle a great deal in the first few days or weeks.  If that describes you, take heart…and read on. First of all:  We feel for you. You might be...

    The Addiction Your Baby Is Born With

    The Addiction Your Baby Is Born With

    Moms, dads: This is an intervention. Your baby has an addiction. He’s highly dependent on loud noise, cramped quarters and bopping up and down… Think about it: He just spent 40 weeks in the tight space of your womb. It’s the only home he’s ever known, and he’s gotten addicted to the lifestyle there. He spent his time doing yoga, folded up and feeling serene. His cozy room was neither still…nor quiet.

    A Tired Parent’s Brain Is Basically…Drunk!?

    A Tired Parent’s Brain Is Basically…Drunk!?

    A friend once told me her story of arriving at the daycare center to pick up her baby on a day she felt incredibly tired. She swung her car into a parking space and then continued driving it...right into the building! Exhaustion is rough on new parents…and stressful.

    Bed-Sharing: Great Idea or Risky Business?

    Bed-Sharing: Great Idea or Risky Business?

    I know what I’m about to say may make me as unpopular as diaper rash with some of you. But I hope you’ll bear with me, because the decision to bed-share or not is a critically important one. Bed-sharing is as old as the hills. From our earliest days, parents and babies have slept together for protection, warmth and convenience. And this custom is growing in popularity: The number of bed-sharing families more than doubled between 1993 and 2000. Dr....

    Help Your Baby’s Creativity Grow in the First Year

    Help Your Baby’s Creativity Grow in the First Year

    Creativity is our wonderful ability to combine things in a new way– to learn a fact, rule or a pattern –then to change things up and create something distinct! For example, we reshuffle musical notes to create a new song, body movements to create a new dance, or building blocks to create a new structure. Your baby’s creativity is “born” during the second half the first year, as he masters certain skills and starts experimenting with them. When he’s alone...
