This is why the right to pump at work is so important! Data from the 2014 U.S. census indicates an increase in breastfeeding that can be attributed to rules protecting mommas’ #right2pump at work. #Obamacare is breaking down barriers for woman who were previously less likely to #breastfeed . 👏👏👏👏👏 The #affordablecareact protects womens’ health. Healthy women equal healthy communities. Thank you Obama! ❤️🙏 #thankyouobamacare #affordablecareactequalshealthywomen #pumpingatwork #womenshealth #infanthealth #breastfeedinggoals #momlife #mumlife

You can easily keep an eye on them from the other room, or when on the go with the MobiCam Multi-Purpose Monitoring System. It's WAY more functional than the traditional #babymonitor as it has a 110-degree wide angel lens that can capture video of an entire room, even in the dark, letting you keep an eye on your nursery AND can be used to watch over an office or entryway and send notifications to your smartphone or tablet as soon as it detects motion. #babyregistry #bestbabymonitors #babymonitors #getmobi #babygear #infanthealth #elderlyhealth

Back to school? Teens need about 8 to 10 hours of sleep each night to function best. Most teens do not get enough sleep — one study found that only 15% reported sleeping 8 1/2 hours on school nights. Many teens suffer from treatable sleep disorders, such as narcolepsy, insomnia, restless legs syndrome or sleep apnea.

Does your doctor appreciate the power this window holds? The quality of a woman’s birth matters, for her and for her baby, and what happens during labor and delivery directly impacts the health of both. Babies are only born once and if expecting or birthing moms don’t know their options, they don’t have any. Learn more with Fit For Birth.

It may seem silly that I’m posting a picture of a banana purée for a baby, it’s so simple and obvious, but for new moms, it may be overwhelming to think what to feed a baby. - Bananas are easy to feed, they are rich source of nutrients, such as vitamin B6, potassium, fiber, carbohydrate (carbs are the only fuel for brain), easily digested, and can be easily transported and mushed to meet the consistency your baby likes (in case your going out somewhere) - #infanthealth #infantnutrition #infantfood #firstbite #banana #puree #pureedfood #healthybaby #potassium #babybananas #organicfood #organicbanana #whattofeedyourbaby #تغذية_الاطفال #وصفات_أطفال #الامهات_الجدد #حوامل #رضيع #طفلي #طفل_صحي #Ernährung #KinderErnährung #gesundesKind #neueMutter#اورجانيك #اورجانك #اورقانيك #اورقانك

In a culture where commercial interests have convinced us that sharing facts and knowledge is shaming, this crucial information is getting lost & mothers who want to make their breastfeeding journey work are finding themselves doubting their body’s ability to produce enough milk & they are receiving societal pressure to just give a bottle of breast milk substitute, rather than to seek the help they need to make breastfeeding work. If you know all this information & chose not to breastfeed then this information is not relevant to you... this is for all those people who don’t know this information because it is silenced under cover of mummy shaming. Facts aren’t shaming & this is for all those Mummas who want to understand what they are actually choosing when it comes to feeding their babies & how to put the odds in their favour of having the journey they desire.

1. Keep a calm atmosphere. 2. Keep all things within your reach (diapers, burp cloth, nipple cream, etc.) 3. Wear a comfortable outfit. 4. Co-sleep. If you are prefer not to put your baby in the bed with you, try making them sleep in a bassinet next to the bed. Some parents take out one side of the crib, level it and join it with the bed. This would be a good option if you wish to transition your little one to the crib later on. 5. Take your partner’s help. 6. Let your baby drain your breasts. .

#ThrowbackThursday to when we were nice and comfy in the womb. . . . Did you know that a pregnant mother's diet can affect the gut bacteria of her baby? According to a recent study published in the journal Microbiome, mothers who ate more fruit had babies with higher levels of Streptococcus and Clostridium, while those who ate more red meat had higher levels of Bifidobacterium. . . A baby's gut microbiome plays a large role in their overall health and immune system! This research could lead to new and improved diet guidelines for expecting mothers, and therefore healthier babies! . . . . #microbiome #microbiology #gutbacteria #microbiomics #pregnancy #expectingmother #biology #zymo #zymoresearch #biotech #biotechnology #researcher #scientist #ilovescience #scienceisawesome #scienceiscool #sciencenerd #sciencegeek #throwbackthursday #tbt #infanthealth #sciencerules #bacteria #pregnancytips #pregnancydiet

What is this we are telling families? @usatoday - This is dangerous. Just because some have taken it upon themselves to do this does not make it right. 🤭 1. You should not EXPECT a 12 week old baby to sleep through the night. . 2. That is a CHOKING and Health HAZARD . ############## For Parents: This is what is recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Center for Disease Control. . The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends children be introduced to foods other than breast milk or infant formula when they are about 6 months old. Every child is different. How do you know if your child is ready for foods other than breast milk or infant formula? You can look for these signs that your child is developmentally ready: Your child can sit with little or no support. Your child has good head control. Your child opens his or her mouth and leans forward when food is offered. What Foods Should I Introduce to My Child First? The American Academy of Pediatrics says that for most children, you do not need to give foods in a certain order. Your child can begin eating solid foods at about 6 months old. By the time he or she is 7 or 8 months old, your child can eat a variety of foods from different food groups. These foods include infant cereals, meat or other proteins, fruits, vegetables, grains, yogurts and cheeses, and more. If your child is eating infant cereals, it is important to offer a variety of fortified infant cereals such as oat, barley, and multi-grain instead of only rice cereal. Only providing infant rice cereal is not recommended by the Food and Drug Administration because there is a risk for children to be exposed to arsenic.

The reason why I designed the illustrated cot sheets for the @littleme_decor range was not only to be pretty decor but to allow for a safe sleeping area for your baby. I’m not a fan of cot or crib bumpers because of the SIDS risk.

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends room-sharing, not bed-sharing. When an infant shares a sleep surface with a parent or caregiver, such as a bed or couch, they are at risk for choking, suffocation, and becoming trapped. When room-sharing, babies can sleep in a safe environment and still be nearby. • • • • • #safesleep #safesleepky #safesleep #SIDS #SIDSawareness #backisbest #babycare #infanthealth #infant #baby #babysafety #LTDHD #parenting #parentlife #newparents #kyhands #kyhealth #AAP
🍼How Dr Browns is Different🍼 Dr. Brown’s redefined bottle feeding by creating an internal venting system that prevents air from coming in contact with the liquid. This helps prevent colic, spit-up, burping and gas –reducing or eliminating feeding problems for your baby, and stress and anxiety for you. While other bottle designs have emerged to address venting, Dr. Brown’s are the only bottles that are fully vented. This maximizes your baby’s ability to feed comfortably at their own pace. In addition to the Original bottles, Dr. Brown’s recently introduced the Options bottle, which can be used with or without the internal venting system. You may find that removing the venting system simplifies things for you as your baby’s feeding becomes more developed. Your baby will let you know if they ready!

This is Maher Bano, whose daughter was born at home just a few hours before Nicholas Kristof and I arrived at her house in Lucknow, India back in 2015. The baby was underweight and in danger of dying. The best medicine in this context is breast milk. Studies show that prompt breast-feeding reduces neonatal mortality by 44 percent. . But Maher Bano said that for the first 24 hours, the baby would be given only tea with honey. “I’ll breast-feed the baby tomorrow, or the next day,” she said, explaining that she was following the guidance of the traditional birth attendant who had helped her deliver the baby. . Why am I posting this today? This week a NY Times report came out about how American government officials tried to derail a World Health Assembly resolution that encourages breast-feeding. The resolution said that mother’s milk is healthiest for children and that countries should strive to limit the misleading marketing of breast milk substitutes. . US officials tried to remove language that called on governments to “protect, promote and support breast-feeding” and another passage that called on policymakers to restrict the promotion of food products that many experts say can have harmful effects on young children. . Unfortunately, the US government is bowing down to powerful companies and disregarding women like Maher Bano, who need access to accurate information in order to save their childrens’ lives. . Trump tweeted, “Many women need [formula] because of malnutrition and poverty.” This makes no sense. Infants who are not breast-fed are 14 times more likely to die than those who are exclusively breast-fed. And breast milk is free. . Unethical marketing practices from formula makers is a longstanding problem that has contributed to a decline in breast-feeding in low-income countries. And it’s a shame the US government is now playing a role in this misinformation campaign. . Current estimates backed by the World Health Organization and Unicef are that optimal breast-feeding would save 800,000 children’s lives a year in developing countries. So US government, what do you say we hop on board the morality train?

The Trump Administration continues to sadden me and question my faith in our country. Our United States delegtation at the World Health Assembly in Geneva denied resolutions to promote world-wide breastfeeding practices. In an effort to support large, infant-formula manufacturing companies mainly based in the U.S. and Europe, our delegation threatened to pull military support from Ecuador if the country embraced support of natural breast feeding. With decades of EVIDENCE-BASED RESEARCH proving the health benefits of breastmilk to infants (irreplaceable nutrients, hormones, and antibodies in addition to evidence of lower adolescent/adult obesity rates), myself along with health advocates all over the world are horrified. Beast-feeding could also save over 800,000 lives a year globally if promotion is increased. How can we put our faith in a country that values the lives of infants so little compared to the wallets of the owners and investors of international, infant-formula manufacturing companies? Continue to support breastfeeding practices in America and across the world by educating yourself on the benefits and eliminating stigmas surrounding breastfeeding.

Mother’s milk is the healthiest for babies/children and countries should strive to LIMIT the inaccurate and misleading marketing of breast milk substitutes. But WHY did American officials want to remove the language that called on governments to ‘protect, promote and support breastfeeding?!?’ The US also threatened to punish other countries with certain trade measures, withdrawing military aid and cut US funding to WHO (World Health Organization). So why this stunning turn of events? 🤔 LOBBYISTS! It’s all about market share. Every time a baby 👶🏽goes to the breast, the $70 BILLION baby food industry loses a sale. The opposition by the USA 🇺🇸 is appalling. Period. When will this country value motherhood, mother-baby health, and doing what’s best for our must vulnerable??🤱 Again, marginalizing those mama-baby dyads who need more support. Profits over public health. Let that sink in 💰. • • #breastfeedingmatters #breastfeedingadvocacy #supportingmothers #publichealth #infanthealth #maternalhealth #motherbabydyad #worldhealthorganization #unitednations #unresolution

Keeping babies hydrated💧✨ Our co-Founder and Paediatrican Sophie explain why babies are at higher risk for dehydration and the most common questions asked by parents during the last couple of days. - First of all the ratio of skin surface to body mass is higher than in adults. Their skin is still developing and therefore loses fluids more easily. That means babies sweat quite a lot when it’s hot. - 1. How much water should my baby have? Breastfed babies usually do not need any extra fluid. You will notice that your child will demand a feed more frequently in hot weather in order to keep her or his fluid balance. Once your baby has more than three solid meals per day, you can give him or her cooled boiled water or tea. Avoid fruit juices as they contain a lot of sugar. Your baby needs around 150 ml per kilogram body weight of total fluid intake per day. - 2. Is there anything else I can do to help my baby keep cool? A cool bath before bedtime will relax your baby. Keep the blinds or curtains of your baby's room closed during the day to keep the room cool. When traveling with your baby in the car, make sure she or he is positioned on the shady side. - For all breastfeeding mums, I love Imogen's breastfeeding advice for hot weather @imogenibclc - Hope that’s helpful? Let me know if you have more questions😊💗Sophie - 📸 @scotylrae
I’m not sure who enjoys Ezra’s massage time more: him because it feels good, or me because I get to caress the softest skin on the planet. 😄 The benefits of baby massage include relaxation, better sleep, relief from tummy discomfort, muscle tone, circulation, brain development, and sensory awareness. I always used plain coconut oil to massage our little ones, until I tried the Seedlings baby oil. It smells so wonderful and comforting, using a super calming blend of lavender, coriander, bergamot, ylang ylang, and geranium oils in a base of skin-nourishing carrier oils. If you don’t have the Seedlings oil yet, you can also use a drop of Gentle Baby or lavender oil in any carrier you prefer. This is perfect right before bedtime! I start with his legs, moving in long strokes down to his feet. Then chest and tummy, spreading hands up and out like smoothing the pages of a book. Circular clockwise motions on tummy can help with gas or constipation too. Then down each arm, including armpits for lymphatic function.
Pamela Hachiswenya was born on April 24th in a rural Zambian village called Katoba. She was born to her mother Grace, father Peter, and four siblings. As I spent 4 months in Zambia telling the story of Grace’s pregnancy and delivery for my documentary film with @natgeo on maternal and infant health, I too felt like I became part of the family! And I miss my family in Katoba! So today I called my cab driver in Zambia (he has WhatsApp) and had him call the Hachiswenya family (they don’t have WhatsApp) to check in. Here is the update on their beautiful 11-week old baby, Pamela, who they named after my mother ❤️ . “Pamela is ok,” Peter said over the phone. “Last week she received immunization for polio. The girl has improved to 6.8 kg. She is a very healthy baby. But she is giving us some headache though because she is a very short tempered baby. When she starts to cry she will not do breast feeding. So those are some of the challenges we are facing.” . I miss my weekly visits to Katoba village to see Grace, Peter, and their family, but just hearing their voices again fills me with so much joy! Peter signed off his message, “Greetings to the family of Austin. This is all I have for you for now my brother.” . As I get more updates from the Hachiswenya family, I will keep you all posted! Thanks for following their family’s journey over the pas 5 months! Editing on this whole project begins very soon :)

No amount of bullying, no matter the source, will prevent us from keeping mamas and babies healthy and informed ❤️ - - - - - - - - #cohi #breastfeeding #breastfeed #unwho #worldhealthorganization #maternalhealth #formula #birthjustice #healthymamas #healthybabies #healthyinfant #healthcare #infanthealth #midwives #ngo

Breast milk is best for your baby. American policy to attempt strong arming policy by pushing forth formula over Breastmilk for newborns must cease. Do not let corporations or government greed dictate your choices. Be informed. #breastmilk #breastfeeding #kidshealth #newborns #breastmilkisbest #portraitpage #portraitphotography #infanthealth #infant #infantphotography #vogue #esquire #thenewyorktimes #ligadeleche #elinchrom #kidstronghq

PLEASE read! This is not a breastfeeding vs. formula feeding article! There is mention of the US government ending contributions to the #worldhealthorganization . This would be catastrophic for so many especially women and children! - - Read the full article here: https://mobile.nytimes.com/2018/07/08/health/world-health-breastfeeding-ecuador-trump.html . . #breastfeeding #maternalhealth #worldhealth #infanthealth #formulafeeding
@ivankatrump... can you please help the current Administration understand that breastfeeding saves the US billions of dollars each year through #USDA and #WIC subsidies. The resistance to the current #worldhealthorganization resolution creates more debt to the US. Also, breastfeeding lowers health care costs. Researchers have calculated that $2.2 billion in yearly medical costs could be saved if breastfeeding recommendations were met. It is critical that we continue working to improve hospital, community and workplace support for breastfeeding mothers and babies and realize these cost savings. #milkfail #help #infanthealth
Use separate cutting boards for meat and vegetables to limit exposure of bacteria to raw produce or other items.  Be sure to clean counters, cutting boards and any related utensils with hot, soapy water before and after prep.  Raw produce also can harbour the bacteria, rinse all fruits and vegetables before chopping or serving. #ADHD#learningdifficulties#infanthealth#sleep #settlingissues  #asthma  #eczema  #allergies  #adolescenthealth #wellbeing #weightmanagement #paediatrician #completechildrenshealth #childhealth #healthprofessionals #kids #keilor  #mooneeponds3039
