Tips to Prevent Getting an Infectious Disease While on Vacation

Dr. Brent W. Laartz thought he was in for the ride of his lifetime when he set out on a horseback riding excursion in Costa Rica.

Admittedly younger and more naïve than he is today, Laartz – an infectious disease specialist and author of the book How to Avoid Contagious Diseases…

Measuring a life makes it less enjoyable

I've just woken up my son for school. He looks at me with blurry eyes and his hair is sticking out in every direction. He even still smells like sleep; to me, he is perfection. He yawns and asks me if I ran that morning. I confirm that I did and he immediately taps my fitbit to congratulate me on all my dots.…

My Love-Hate Relationship with Breastfeeding (on demand)

O.K., I admit it, sometimes I HATE breastfeeding. There, I said it. At three a.m. when I am awakened for the third time by my sweet eleven month old nuzzling up against my shirt and crying, I have to say that I have bottle-feeding baby envy. I want nothing more than to hand my baby over to my soundly…

Sharing a nap with Fido

When our cat was alive, she used to sleep in bed with us at night. I could count on her to nudge me in the middle of the night if I was snoring, crawl up next to me when she was having a bad dream and gently paw at me when she wanted me to wake up and feed her.…

3 Things to Remember as a Sleep Deprived Mom



Cries echo loudly off the dark walls.

As the world snores, I stumble out of bed, sleep clouding my eyes. After a diaper change and an hour of nursing, I'm certain that I'll be able to get a little more sleep. It's in that instant that my 10-month-old…

Please don't yawn in front of me

Full disclosure: I just yawned while typing that title.



Here's the thing: I am very susceptible to yawning. If I see someone yawn in front of me, I am going to yawn back at them. And when I do, I really hope that they are not also susceptible to yawning, otherwise we have entered a very dangerous yawning…

My Mother never slept

When I was a teenager, I was convinced that my Mother didn't sleep. She was a single Mom with a restaurant job that required long hours. And on the nights that she worked a close shift followed by an open shift, I am pretty sure that she only got about four hours of sleep (at best).…

Go the eff to sleep--nighttime shenanigans.

Sleep is magical, refreshing, blissful, and--well, I don't quite remember because it's been so long since I've gotten first hand experience. Stick a fork in me I'm done. I can't...I just...sigh. Here's a complimentary backstage pass for a look into the goings on at the Repiscak abode, specifically at bedtime. Liam is sleeping like a normal 5 month old baby would, or at least, what I consider to be normal. What's that like you ask? Bed around 8pm, awake a few hours later,…

Everything I know is wrong

I have tried standing more during the day. Because I once read that sitting too much was bad for my health. I tried standing more at home, at work and when I went outside to play with my son. I stood. But, it turns out that I didn't need to.



Another study has just declared that…

We are Co-Sleepers...Sometimes

Originally posted at www.justplayinghouse.com.

It's become very obvious that I've given up all claim to my own room. To be honest, I'm questioning why we need a house with more than 1-bedroom! We are not co-sleepers. We don't even set out to sleep in the same room. It just sort of happens, mostly in the middle of the night.

I've gotten so I have left 2 little blanket beds on the floor already made up. These are for…

Passing along the bedtime pass

As of today, I am very lucky with my son's bedtime routine. He and I snuggle up in his bed and read books together (he reads me one and I read him three). Then there are hugs and kisses and then the light goes off. He very rarely leaves the bedroom.…

Four day school weeks

Five mornings a week I have the same conversation with my son involving the reality of it being morning (despite the lack of sunlight) and how he will need to depart the happy warmth of his bed and zombie-walk his way to the bathroom to get ready for school. My cheerful morning greetings are met with dreariness and drudgery.…

Another reason to fear the blue light

I am typing this post three hours before my bedtime. I normally do not work on blog posts at night (I write the majority of them in the mornings on the weekends), but it has been a busy weekend, so I am writing this one a few hours before I go to sleep. It is a Monday post, but that is not the deadline that I have in mind. My deadline is actually to be done with my computer an hour before my bedtime.…

The reality of maternity leave with a reflux baby. My very first blog

http://https://thelonelymamablog.wordpress.com/

When you find out your pregnant you start to imagine what your baby will look like, who your baby will take after and what their personality will be like.  I would fantasize about the happy times me and my baby would have on maternity leave.  The first Christmas we would have together, the time off spent with daddy, going out for walks with the…

ঘুম (Sleep)

[English version has given below]
ঘুম কারো কারো জন্য কোনো বিষয়ই না। ১৪ ঘন্টা ঘুমানোর মনে হলো, আগামী কাল সারা রাত জাগতে হবে, তখনি বিছানায় শুয়ে আবার ঘুমিয়ে পরে। আমি এদের কাজ কারবার দেখে অবাক হয়ে যাই। 
এক সময় আমিও টানা ঘুমাতাম। আবার কাজ থাকলে টানা জাগতেও পারি। কিন্তু এখন ছেলে হবার পর, সে আর আমাকে শান্তিমত ঘুমাতে দেয়না। দেখা যায় ঘুমানোর আধা ঘন্টার মধ্যে ডেকে তোলে। বার বার এমন হতে হতে এখন নিজেই ঠিকমতো ঘুমাতে পারিনা।  যখন ছেলে ঘুমায় তখন হয়তো আমার কাজ থাকে, বা ৪ ঘন্টার মধ্যে…

Sleep and our health

When your baby fat grows up

All mothers know there are two definitions of the phrase "baby fat." The first definition describes the extra roll of fat that clings to babies and is absolutely adorable. The second definition refers to those extra pounds that cling to a woman's body after she has the baby (and is considered much less adorable). Mothers usually blame their baby for their weight gain, and then try their luck at getting rid of it.…

BedtimeBedding - Best Storytelling set for your child

Bedtime Stories are imaginary worlds where the impossible becomes possible, the fun never stops and the endings are as happy as you can imagine. A bedtime story is a traditional form of storytelling, where a story is told to a child at bedtime to prepare the child for sleep. More importantly, bedtime storytelling helps kids bond with their parents and guardians.

Research shows that when dads or moms read bedtime stories, their kids do better at school. Bedtime stories encourage speech…
