breastfeeding

Your due date is just around the corner, and you're getting everything ready -- you've got the baby's room ready, you've got the house all clean (but not too clean), you've got a name picked out (one boy name and one girl name, just in case the doctor was wrong about the sex), and you've started lactating like crazy. Your boobs have just magically become the fountains for youth, and you need a little mouth to feed.

It's actually not all that easy for some moms -- the breast milk part, ...

mother with baby

Do you remember that one time when you had this crazy feeling that you needed to go and check on your baby and you walked in just as he about to fall down the stairs? Or how about that other time when you woke up in the middle of the night, feeling that something was wrong, and you walk into your baby's room and find that she's tangled up in her blanket?

This strange phenomenon is what we all know as a mother's intuition.

It's a strange thing, really, that a woman, who ...

I love being clean just as much as the next guy, which is why I'm on the verge of death (and bringing death about to others) because I have not showered since last Saturday. 

No, I'm not a recluse that just writes and writes and writes and neglects food and basic hygiene. I am actually living in China without any Chinese language skills whatsoever, so when you lose access to running water in your apartment (which I did last Friday) and you have no way of telling anyone to fix it, ...

A project team from the Netherlands has created a device that will forever litter your Facebook News Feed with photos of babies in their natural habitats -- their cribs.

The New Born Fame project, a social-media-minded contraption, was built by Laura Cornet, a graduate of the Design Academy Eindhoven in the Netherlands, and reflects and questions a vision for the future of the selfie! I'm still not exactly sure what the rationale behind putting this sort of thing together was, but ...

When I hear the term "maternal mortality," I assume that the term is being used in reference to describing birthing conditions in either the time of the Dark Ages or in underdeveloped and impoverished countries. 

Turns out both of those assumptions are not quite correct.

In an interview with EverydayFamily, Michael Rosenblatt, M.D., Executive Vice President and Chief Medical Officer of Merck & Co., Inc., said that "we tend, in the US, to think that maternal mortality is a ...

If you strip all the excess fat from holiday traditions like presents and candy and egg-laying rabbits and gold-hoarding dwarves and naked baby archers, holidays really share the same core:

Family.

Family is what makes eating soggy bread that was shoved up a turkey's booty at Thanksgiving palatable; family is what makes it all worth it to wake up at 6 o'clock in the morning (6 a.m. is beyond too early for me) to open presents that were left the night before by a bearded Arctic ...

Currently, I'm living in Suzhou, China, and am working at an international kindergarten, teaching 2-year-olds how to speak English (despite not even being able to speak Mandarin), how to get along (the majority of these children are currently the only child in their family and will quite possibly remain so for the remainder of their days), how to interact with other children (a side effect of the previous point), and how to experience other cultures.

For example, even though China is ...

In the past, women who have had issues with infertility had a select few options for becoming mothers. Some of those options have been fertility medication, surrogacy, adoption, IVF. Now there's one more option that can be added to that list: womb transplantation. 

A woman from Sweden just gave birth this past month to a baby with the help of a transplanted womb that she received from a 61-year-old family friend. The donor had already had two children and had gone through ...

We all know what word association games are, right? You know, the ones where I say a word and you tell me the first thing that pops into your head? Well, we're going to play that right now.

Here's the word(s):

Baby Bump.

Did you think of pregnancy? 

Of course you did. Baby bumps and bumpies are all the rage now, and they should be! Pregnancy is awesome! But there is one aspect of pregnancy that isn't necessarily a crowd favorite.

The post-baby body. You've got ...

Once your child has entered the world and you have decided that you will keep this little person, you are 100% responsible for diapering, wiping, feeding, burping, kissing, snuggling, clothing, and caring for him or her (or, sometimes, him and her!). And in order for your to be able to stock up on diapers, food, and clothing, you've got to get out there and get yourself a job.

I get that.

Breaking down why jobs are obtained, it could be said that the purpose of getting a job is ...
