Tummy Time Can Prevent Your Newborn from Developing Plagiocephaly

The “Back to Sleep” campaign was introduced in the early 1990′s to help prevent babies from SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome).  When a baby is born their heads are still soft and their skull will slowly harden over the next few months.  However, laying your baby in the same position all the time places gentle pressure on the back of the skull, causing it to slowly change shape.  Read the full post at …

Calling all moms! As moms we are no stranger to the act of giving.  However, at Thanksgiving we moms tend to have a different type of challenge. The challenge of finding the balance between perfection and reality, so that Thanksgiving can be enjoyed by all, including mom. Sometimes we get too caught up in the Norman Rockwell or Martha Stewart illusion of Thanksgiving.  And that is precisely what it is, an illusion.  In this segment of Moms’ Timeout will be discussing ways to simplify…

Fab Mom Sunday Supper 11/18

Growing up, my parents taught us the value of quality family time.  My mother insisted that we sit down as a family most evenings for dinner.  Seriously?  - Both my parents worked full-time jobs and my siblings and I had our own schedules. My mother had the audacity to demand that Sunday supper together was a "Because, I said so" evening. There were no cell phones, TV or any other distractions. Just the family enjoying a great home-made meal together while sharing the moments of our week or…

How to Make Bathing Your Infant More Enjoyable?

Bathing an infant isn’t an easy task and can be an overwhelming experience.  Once a baby is wet and then you add soap to the equation, an infant becomes very slippery and are hard to hang on to.  Luckily, when you baby is smaller they don’t have to be bathed every day.  In fact, your baby probably won’t like bath time until they are a bit older.  Keep in mind that even though your tiny newborn can’t splash you, be prepared to get wet.  Read more: …

Torment

Not in our house. Because in our house, we don't celebrate the little triumphs. There are no pats on the back or celebratory high fives. In our house, success is an opportunity to bully. To tease. To tempt. To harass, badger, provoke, goad, bait and bother. Achievement sign posts the opportunity to immediately focus on the next thing I can't do. Because now I can walk; I have to walk further. I have to manage one more step than last time; one more stride than before; one more pace…

How many Twinkies have you actually consumed in the past month? (NOTE: You should not count this week when the world decided that Twinkies were edible again.)
