Filed under: Baby BlabberHealthGIFs

should circumcisions be given like vaccines

Circumcision is a controversial subject these days.

Some argue it's an outdated religious practice that poses no benefits, and causes an infant, who has no choice in the matter, some extreme pain.

However a new research study conducted by Professor Brian Morris claims that the benefits outnumber the risks 100 to 1, and has proposed that infant circumcision be

Filed under: HealthMental HealthScience!

A new study has found that autism likely starts in the womb during brain development!

Wow, this is pretty big. New research has shown that autism could begin in the womb.

Scientists have new evidence that suggests autism begins in early pregnancy, when development of the brain's cortex is disrupted.

Researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine and the Allen Institute for Brain Science analyzed the genes in brain tissues of deceased children, which helped saved the lives of others.

Some Moms are NOT Safe Behind the Wheel!

Uh oh!

This isn't good!

A survey of 2,396 U.S. mothers with kids under the age of two found that ten percent said they were involved in a car crash while driving with their baby. That's over three times higher than the normal rate found among the general population.

We are very disturbed by these numbers! Especially for those defenseless babes that are in the back seat!!! That's so dangerous!

Here's what one editor said in regards to the study:

"While we expect new moms to feel exhausted, we were shocked by their lack of focus while driving, especially when their baby or toddler is in the car. The combination of fatigue and distraction is a perfect storm where safety is concerned."

We hope ALL of the moms out there will make sure they're looking out for their own well being and the well being of their child!!

And if you're tired–then take a day off and rest up! Your kid will thank you later!!

The Internet has changed the way the world works.

And never has that been more apparent with teenagers where social media has basically replaced most social interactions!

Which is great sometimes, but sometimes can be a problem.

Here's what one person said:

"As pediatricians who are trying to help children behave in ways that keep them healthy and safe, we have to pay a lot of attention to what's happening in social media."

But what to do?

Breastfeeding Saves Lives!!!

Filed under: Baby BlabberHealth

Miranda Kerr Breastfeeding

According to a new report from UNICEF, the slightest uptick in the breastfeeding rates will save millions of dollars annually in health care costs.

Just a little more breastfeeding would keep thousands of infants out of the hospital for gastroenteritis, respiratory illness, and ear infections.

We know that breastfeeding is great for babies, making them stronger and healthier, giving them more immunity to infection and disorders like eczema.

But it turns out there are also massive health benefits for the mother
