Tips for The Expectant Mother

If you're a mom, then most likely you get excited when you have a friend or even an acquaintance to find out that they are expecting. More often than not, finding out that one is expecting leads to a conversation that includes lots of “know how”. You know what I mean everyone in the group seems to know more than each other about pregnancy, babies, and other related topics. Pretty soon the conversation sounds more like a list of tips for the expectant mother. And honestly, that may be good. As we could all use a few tips now and again right? Especially, when it comes to bringing a new baby into the world.

So, the following are a few tips for any expectant mother that you know, who knows it may even be you. They include:

1. You may have to change your diet. In fact, expect a change in your diet in some form or fashion while you're expecting. Either you will have to eat more frequently to prevent morning sickness or you will have to abstain from eating certain types of food to keep from getting ill, or you may have to eat more just to feel full, no matter what there is sure to be a change in your diet.

2. There are certain things you should avoid. These include: the kitty litter box, chemicals, alcohol, drugs, smoking, and fish with high levels of mercury. Some of these things seem like a given while others you may wonder about, regardless take the tips of others and avoid them.

3. Take a break. Pregnant women need frequent breaks as you will most likely experience more fatigue than you normally do when you're not with child. Taking a nap during pregnancy can do you much good.

While taking a rest be sure to read Child Safety Guide for Expectant Parents These are special purchase price of $7 for a limited time.

7 Tips to Child Safety in the Holidays

In this business season we are out in public with our kids a lot. How can we make certain your children are safe and secure? What things can you do to feel at peace while shopping with your kids? As a mom of 4 I learned to teach them early what to do in scary situations.

1. Teach your child to wear an ID. Your child should wear a physical ID (ID Bracelet, Shoe ID Tag, Personalized Dog Tag) every time you go out. The ID should contain your cell phone number so if you are separated you can be reached

2. Teach your child "If Mommy is lost find another mommy with kids and show her your ID so she can call me

3. Teach them to stay put if you get separated. Wait with the mom they found in the location they lost you.

4. Teach them to be attentive. "What color is Mommy wearing today?"What is Mommy's other name?"

5. Play "What if?" Game - "What should you do IF Mommy is lost?"

6. Take a picture of your child with your cell phone as you start shopping. If a child is separated you want to provide a photo. Better yet carry a photo ID card of your child. Put an ID on your child's car seat too.

7. Keep all children under age 12 with you. Do not allow them to wonder away to look in different aisles while shopping. Where you go they should go. I teach my 8 yr old daughter to keep one hand on the cart.

Potty training a child has got to be one of the most difficult parenting tasks. Like with most other things associated with children, every child proves to be very different, whether it is due to personality, or maturity, potty training for even the parent who has done it multiple times can still end up being a struggle.

You may have heard that girls or easier or maybe just the opposite that boys potty train faster, no matter what you've heard once you begin to train your own child you'll begin o have opinions and stories of your own. Some stories you may be dieing to share or others which you wish had never happened to you.

No matter how difficult potty training may seem as you begin it and are going through it the truth is it is something that your child must do in their own time, and on their own schedule. It is like many other facets of life a learning process, maybe even as much for you as for them.

Try to be as understanding as you can with your child as they go through the process of potty training. Keeping your cool and your patience will make things go much more smoothly. Do not set your expectations too high from the beginning and you will be successful.

Also try to make the process fun for the both of you. Getting into the process and making it something you and your child can look forward to doing together rather than dreading on a daily basis. Then, before you know it they will be a happy independent potty goer.

Check out Kay's POTTY 101 article and awesome potty training products to make the process even easier.

Disaster Preparedness

Disaster Preparedness
Dr. Jeffrey Upperman, director of the Disaster Preparedness project at Childrens Hospital Los Angeles

Imagine it is the middle of the day. Your kids are in school, you are at the office. The building begins to sway and then the lights go out. You grab your phone and call your child's school, but you cannot get through. The building starts to shake violently, like nothing you've felt before. Is this the quake they've been warning everyone about? Where is your child? Is she safe? Who is taking care of her? Is she as frightened as you are?

Most parents work to make sure their children are prepared to cope with whatever the world throws at them. We help them with their homework to make sure they are ready for school. We try to make sure they eat the right foods. And, we want to keep them out of harm's way. But do parents really teach their children what they need to know in the event of a disaster? Many parents in California have an emergency kit in the house and car, but are our children ready? Would they know how to cope and keep themselves safe if they were separated from us?

Dr. Jeffrey Upperman is director of the Disaster Preparedness project at Childrens Hospital Los Angeles. He has spent years making sure public health institutions are prepared to address the needs of children in an emergency. Through his practice he has also learned a good deal about what families can do to prepare themselves-and their children-for the consequences of a disaster.

Experts say that children as young as age three can begin to understand earthquakes, floods, fires and other disasters. They should also be able to understand some simple steps you can take together to ensure they stay safe if you are not there to help them. Dr. Upperman's top tips for you and your children:

* Create a "business card" or ID CARD for your child just like yours. Include their name, address, phone number on the front, and a list of emergency contacts on the back, including out-of-state relatives and your pediatrician. Make them promise to keep the cards in their pocket or backpack.

* Coordinate with other parents to arrange for each of your
children to have a "buddy" - another child in their class or playgroup that they should stay close to in an emergency. Get parents and buddies together every six months to review family disaster plans.

* Make sure your children know who to call if they cannot reach
you - designate an out-of-town friend or relative to be a point of contact. Once a month, schedule a time for your child to call that relative just to say hello. The more regularly they communicate, the more comfortable they will be calling in an emergency.

* Every household has features that can be dangerous in the event
of a disaster-things like overhead lights, unsecured water heaters or bookcases, toxic or flammable household cleaners or chemicals. Get your children to help you search the house and make a list of potential hazards. Use the search as an opportunity to teach them about the importance of household safety.

* Volunteer to work with your children, their classmates and their
teacher to create a checklist the class can use in the event of an earthquake or other emergency. Create the checklist as a group, and produce pocket-size copies of the checklist for your children to keep in their desks at school.

* Create a list with your children of all the "helpers" they can
count on if there is an emergency and you are not together. The list would include teachers, doctors, nurses, firemen, policemen. With young children, create a collage with pictures of the helpers. The goal is to ensure kids will feel comfortable and safe with caretakers and emergency workers.

* Have your child create a shopping list for the family's disaster
preparedness kit and shop for the items together. Have them help you pick the storage place, and put them in charge of one of the items in the kit.

* Role play with your children-act out what might happen at
school. Let your child be the adult, and you play the child who needs to be told what to do in an emergency.

* Talk to your children and make sure they talk to you. When there
is news of a disaster or emergency in the world, use the news as a "teachable moment," a way to remind your child how to prepare so that your family will be safe.
