Are You Expecting? Find Out Everything You Need to Know About Pregnancy and Nutrition Without Having to Buy a Dictionary! Dear Fri...end, There is no time in your child s life that nutrition is going to be as important as it is right now, when it hasn t even drawn its first breath. Proper nutrition and good health are a vital part of having a healthy pregnancy, preventing many major birth defects and decreasing your chance of delivering a premature or low birth weight baby. Since your baby is obviously incapable of eating by itself at this point in time they are going to get all of the nutrients they need to grow and develop properly from the foods that you eat. That means that you have to make sure that you re eating enough for both of you-and not just in mean calories either! For the next nine months the nutrients that you take in are going to have to sustain both your health and that of your fetus, so it s essential that you make sure you re getting enough of the necessary vitamins and minerals for both of you. Your Prenatal Vitamins Aren t Enough! Many women read the section above and think, ‘I m taking my prenatal vitamins like my physician told me, and I m trying to eat healthy. Do I still have to worry about my nutrition? The answer to that is ABSOLUTELY. Prenatal vitamins help, but there is no substitute for proper nutrition during the gestation period. That s not to say that you shouldn t take prenatal vitamins. They will go a long way toward helping to compensate for the necessary nutrients that are all but impossible to get through your food in a day. (For example, it is a rare woman that doesn t need a boost to her iron supply during the gestation period, whether she s nutrition conscious or not.) There is a reason that prenatal vitamins are called nutritional supplements, however. On their own they re not sufficient to ensure that your baby grows and develops properly. That s why it s vital that you understand what you need to do during your pregnancy to keep both you and baby healthy. But I m Not a Doctor! A lot of books on prenatal nutrition throw words like gestational diabetes, frenulum and folic acid around without ever bothering to explain what they are, leaving you scrambling for a dictionary and eventually causing you to give up. After all, if you can t even understand it when you read about it, how on earth are you ever going to do it?!?! This book is among the first books to be written with the expertise of a medical expert and from the viewpoint of the average, everyday, ordinary, "going to be the one actually getting up in the middle of the night to change the baby s diaper while the obstetrician sleeps peacefully mom". It s the book on pregnancy nutrition you ll actually understand, explained in stages to make it easy for you to give your baby the best chance at being born healthy and happy. I ll teach you how to: 1) Break down what you eat in a day. There are many diets that are “guaranteed” to help you have a healthy pregnancy, but unless you re willing to spend the next nine months eating the same things over and over (and over and over and over and…) you re probably not going to stick to them for very long. That s okay! I ll teach you how to identify the nutrients you need and keep your own tally going, allowing you to eat the foods that you want while at the same time doing what s best for your baby. 2) Distinguish between Trimesters Just as your child is going to have different nutritional needs when it was born, so too are its needs going to vary throughout its prenatal development. I ll take you through the minute changes you can make to your diet each trimester that will make a major impact on your baby s development. Here is what you will learn inside this guide.... * The various stages of fetal development * How nutrition affects how your baby grows * The role that nutrition plays in determining whether or not your child has a birth defect * How to have a healthy baby without giving up your f Read More

You are at least five months into your tour of parenting duty by now. The complexity of child-training has begun to come into focu...s. You have learned that as your baby matures both constant and variable factors continually influence his or her development. What behaviors can and should you expect from your pretoddler? Feeding time for your pretoddler, for example, is now more than a response controlled by a sucking reflex. For the pretoddler, mealtime is part of a very complex, conscious interaction between what the child does and what his parents expect him to do. Right and wrong conduct will be encouraged, discouraged, and guided when necessary. In fact, right and wrong patterns of behavior will now be part of your baby s entire day. That s why feeding time, waketime and sleeptime provide wonderful opportunities for training and Babywise Book II will guide you all the way, from the high chair to playpen, from the living room to the back yard. This series teaches the practical side of introducing solids food, managing mealtimes, nap transitions, traveling with your infant, setting reasonable limits while encourage healthy exploration and much more. You will learn how to teach your child to use sign language for basic needs, a tool proven to help stimulate cognitive growth and advance communication. Apply the principles and your friends and relatives will be amazed at the alertness, contentedness and happy disposition of your baby. Read More

Right after "Is it a boy or a girl?" and "What s his/her name?," the next question people invariably ask new parents is "Are you g...etting any sleep?" Unfortunately, the answer is usually "Not much." In fact, studies show that approximately 25% of young children experience some type of sleep problem and, as any bleary-eyed parent will attest, it is one of the most difficult challenges of parenting. Drawing on her ten years of experience in the assessment and treatment of common sleep problems in children, Dr. Jodi A. Mindell now provides tips and techniques, the answers to commonly asked questions, and case studies and quotes from parents who have successfully solved their children s sleep problems. Unlike other books on the subject, Dr. Mindell also offers practical tips on bedtime, rather than middle-of-the-night-sleep training, and shows how all members of the family can cope with the stresses associated with teaching a child to sleep. "...a child psychologist explains how parents can teach their baby or toddler to fall asleep and how parents and other members of the family can cope with the stresses a sleepless child can create."

Just a few of the vitally important lessons in caring for your aging parent and yourself from Jane Gross in A Bittersweet Season A...s painful as the role reversal between parent and child may be for you, assume it is worse for your mother or father, so take care not to demean or humiliate them. Avoid hospitals and emergency rooms, as well as multiple relocations from home to assisted living facility to nursing home, since all can cause dramatic declines in physical and cognitive well-being among the aged. Do not accept the canard that no decent child sends a parent to a nursing home. Good nursing home care, which supports the entire family, can be vastly superior to the pretty trappings but thin staffing of assisted living or the solitude of being at home, even with round-the-clock help. Important Facts Every state has its own laws, eligibility standards, and licensing requirements for financial, legal, residential, and other matters that affect the elderly, including qualification for Medicare. Assume anything you understand in the state where your parents once lived no longer applies if they move. Many doctors will not accept new Medicare patients, nor are they legally required to do so, especially significant if a parent is moving a long distance to be near family in old age. An adult child with power of attorney can use a parent s money for legitimate expenses and thus hasten the spend-down to Medicaid eligibility. In other words, you are doing your parent no favor assuming he or she is likely to exhaust personal financial resources by paying rent, stocking the refrigerator, buying clothes, or taking him or her to the hairdresser or barber.

A tour of global practices that will inspire American parents to expand their horizons (and geographical borders) and learn that t...here s more than one way to diaper a baby. Mei-Ling Hopgood, a first-time mom from suburban Michigan now living in Buenos Aires was shocked that Argentine parents allow their children to stay up until all hours of the night. Could there really be social and developmental advantages to this custom? Driven by a journalist s curiosity and a new mother s desperation for answers, Hopgood embarked on a journey to learn how other cultures approach the challenges all parents face: bedtimes, potty training, feeding, teaching, and more. Observing parents around the globe and interviewing anthropologists, educators, and child-care experts, she discovered a world of new ideas. The Chinese excel at potty training, teaching their wee ones as young as six months old. Kenyans wear their babies in colorful cloth slings not only is it part of their cultural heritage, but strollers seem outright silly on Nairobi s chaotic sidewalks. And the French are experts at turning their babies into healthy, adventurous eaters. Hopgood tested her discoveries on her spirited toddler, Sofia, with some enlightening results. This intimate and surprising look at the ways other cultures raise children offers parents the option of experimenting with tried and true methods from around the world and shows that there are many ways to be a good parent.

The Passionate MOM Dare to Parent in Today s World By SUSAN MERRILL Thomas Nelson Copyright © 2013 Susan B. Merrill All right rese...rved. ISBN: 978-1-59555-510-6 Chapter One Perception Those who survived the exile and are back in the province are in great trouble and disgrace. The wall of Jerusalem is broken down, and its gates have been burned with fire. Nehemiah 1:3 Nehemiah was born in exile but possessed the enviable position of cupbearer to a powerful king. At first, this job seems menial and possibly dangerous. After all, the cupbearer s job was to ensure that the king s wine wasn t poisoned by drinking it himself. But the cupbearer had important advantages, including constant access to the king. It was common for a cupbearer to acquire influence and intimacy with the king. So what was Nehemiah thinking at this point in his life? I picture him as a man of good standing, content with his productivity and position, and probably not looking to make a move. But, of course, God is always on the move. One day Nehemiah received a visit from his brother, Hanani, and some friends. Nehemiah questioned his visitors, in search of news about their people who had survived the Babylonian exile and returned to Jerusalem. The news was not good: "Those who survived the exile and are back in the province are in great trouble and disgrace. The wall of Jerusalem is broken down, and its gates have been burned with fire" (Neh. 1:3). And then the waitress brought Nehemiah and his guests some dessert, and they discussed their upcoming holiday and vacation plans. I m kidding. But isn t that the way it usually goes with visits from our friends? How many times have I sat having coffee with a friend or phoned my sister and discussed the news? We talk about the lives of others, but do we really care? When you hear of a broken marriage, a rebellious teen, or a financial misfortune, do you respond with interest, concern, and caring, shaking your head sadly over the tragic news? And what about bad news from your own kids lives? Do you give them your undivided attention and respond with genuine empathy? Or do you thank goodness that the waitress came around again and allowed you to change the topic? Could this possibly be the way it goes with your after-school discussions with your child? "Mom, I saw something really weird on the computer today." "Mom, my friend is having a slumber party, but I don t like spending the night there." "Mom, my teacher said I make my nines and sixes wrong." "Mom, I saw a girl picking on Sissy in the lunch room." And then you pull in the drive and tell the kids to grab their stuff for ballet and baseball while you prepare a quick snack. Families are busy, and sometimes the providential hints about deeper issues get glossed over as we race through life. Nehemiah did not gloss over what he heard from his brother. The city and the walls surrounding and protecting Nehemiah s people were a mess, but he did not move on to more pleasant topics. He listened. He perceived. The Bible says he questioned his visitors (Neh. 1:2). He assimilated and processed the information; he thought about what it meant to the safety and welfare of the people. He grieved their danger and their future. The Israelites were in trouble, and what they needed was for someone to notice. They needed someone to rightly perceive the situation and take action. They had their man in Nehemiah. Do your children have their mom in you? Is there something going on in your child s life that she really needs you to perceive? Is she attempting to navigate some difficult waters without guidance because you haven t been listening? Nehemiah had developed something every mom needs: depth perception. Perception is the vital ability to listen and process what is really happening in someone s life. It is not easy to force yourself to fully comprehend difficulties and to feel concern and even anguish, but for a mom it is necessary. So here is the first brick in building your own w Read More

The secret behind France s astonishingly well-behaved children. When American journalist Pamela Druckerman has a baby in Paris, sh...e doesn t aspire to become a "French parent." French parenting isn t a known thing, like French fashion or French cheese. Even French parents themselves insist they aren t doing anything special. Yet, the French children Druckerman knows sleep through the night at two or three months old while those of her American friends take a year or more. French kids eat well-rounded meals that are more likely to include braised leeks than chicken nuggets. And while her American friends spend their visits resolving spats between their kids, her French friends sip coffee while the kids play. Motherhood itself is a whole different experience in France. There s no role model, as there is in America, for the harried new mom with no life of her own. French mothers assume that even good parents aren t at the constant service of their children and that there s no need to feel guilty about this. They have an easy, calm authority with their kids that Druckerman can only envy. Of course, French parenting wouldn t be worth talking about if it produced robotic, joyless children. In fact, French kids are just as boisterous, curious, and creative as Americans. They re just far better behaved and more in command of themselves. While some American toddlers are getting Mandarin tutors and preliteracy training, French kids are- by design-toddling around and discovering the world at their own pace. With a notebook stashed in her diaper bag, Druckerman-a former reporter for The Wall Street Journal-sets out to learn the secrets to raising a society of good little sleepers, gourmet eaters, and reasonably relaxed parents. She discovers that French parents are extremely strict about some things and strikingly permissive about others. And she realizes that to be a different kind of parent, you don t just need a different parenting philosophy. You need a very different view of what a child actually is. While finding her own firm non, Druckerman discovers that children-including her own-are capable of feats she d never imagined. Read More

Could having the occasional small bowl of ice cream lead to a midnight craving for pickles and ice cream? It s common knowledge th...at diet and exercise have profound effects on your health. Can they affect your ability to get pregnant, too? Until now, the answer to that question was a qualified "Maybe."

You can increase your chances of getting pregnant with such simple strategies as: Avoiding trans fats Eating more beans, nuts, and other fertility-boosting plant protein Embracing whole grains such as oatmeal and barley Having a glass of whole milk or other full-fat dairy product every day (a small bowl of ice cream every now and then counts, too!)
