First Halloween for Baby

Pictures, albums and home video may be the only way children ever know they even participated in trick or treating as a baby. Who are we kidding? We all know the fun of the first Halloween or two is more for parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and siblings.

Breastfeeding in public

Most mothers know that breastfeeding is the most natural and healthy option for their baby. The problem is that nowadays mothers need to work, shop, take their other children places, and do a thousand other things; it's hard to always be in a private area when your baby is hungry. Social norms make many women feel wrong feeding their children in public areas, but don't let this stop you. There are several steps you can take to be discrete about feeding your child. You should also not let people stop you from doing what's best for your children.

Using baby formula

Breastfeeding is the preferred method of providing newborns with all the nutrients and immune system aids they require. But for many people - whether mother, infant or both - that simply isn't an option. But not to worry. Baby formulas have developed to a high art, thanks to excellent science.

It's feeding time for baby

It's often said, with a hint of nostalgia, that life in the past was simpler. Probably true. But simpler isn't always better. Modern technology has developed a range of feeding products that makes the baby's mealtime safer, more convenient and even stylish.

Benefits of breastfeeding

While the fetus is developing, it gets all its needed nutrients from the mother through the umbilical cord. This includes compounds that help the baby's immune system to protect it from harm. But even after birth the baby's immune system is still not fully mature. Fortunately, nature has cleverly developed a solution. The added help it needs it gets in part from colostrum and milk via breastfeeding.
