Infant Colic: How to Help You Stop Crying<br /><br />Colic of the infant is one of the most common reasons for pediatric consultation because of the suffering it generates in a baby of few days or weeks, and that provokes parents, who in many cases come to despair for not knowing what to do to help.<br /><br />It is a cry that does not cease, that parents interpret as a moment of pain, anger, and discomfort from children, which makes us try to act in some way and many cases lead us to lose our nerves, helplessness, and exhaustion to see that despite our efforts, the baby continues to weep.<br /><br />If you are in this situation and would like to know what the possible causes are and try to help your baby stop crying, then we explain what the colic of the infant is and what are the possible solutions to treat it.<br /><br /><br /><br />What is infant colic?<br /><br />In medicine, there is a very useful diagnosis but very little specific for those situations in which a person explains that he is not well, but the cause is not found: general malaise. It is something like saying "this person is wrong, but we do not know yet why" and that diagnosis lasts until the definitive is finally replaced.<br /><br /><br /><br />Well, in pediatrics, something similar happens when a baby of a few days cries, and the parents do not find a way to calm him: colic of the infant or colic of the baby. In fact, it is so nonspecific that in many publications it is no longer called colic, but inconsolable crying of the baby, which is the same as not saying anything:<br />

"Being a nursing mother, being healthy and wanting to help,"<br /><br />We talk about the benefits of breastfeeding because it is true that it has and we always talk about the generosity of mothers who become breast milk donors, because it is true, that it is a gesture that shows its great heart.<br /><br />Today we talked with one of those mothers, a donor of breast milk, who told us about their experience, something that might encourage some of you to become part of the lives of children who need your generosity.<br /><br /><br /><br />Do you urge to know what a mother breast milk donor feels like? The only indispensable you know what it is: being a nursing mother, being healthy and wanting to help a family, a baby.<br /><br />Lorena was in a Facebook group to support breastfeeding in which one day, the issue of breast milk donation came out. That was the touch she needed to investigate on her own where there was a breast milk bank in Madrid, the city where she lived at that time and what requirements had to be fulfilled to be a breast milk donor.

After Innovative Life Options Inc. (LIFE) completed a project called 'kitchen table talks', it was discovered that so many parents felt alone and frustrated navigating systems for their children with special needs. Many families felt isolated and alone trying to access information and resources, and in many cases had not had the opportunity to connect with other parents who faced the same issues and experiences. In response to that project, LIFE connected with families involved with Manitoba's independent supported living model 'In the Company of Friends' to see if any of the families involved would be willing to share their stories in order to help others. The belief was that if there were that many questions from the small number of people that we were able to connect with through the kitchen table project, there must be hundreds of other families around the world asking the same questions. The hope is that the sharing of these experiences will make navigation in this unfamiliar territory just a little bit easier for someone who is new to it all. Learning that a child has special needs can leave parents feeling alone and lost as they learn to navigate in a new world of diagnosis and systems. Family Matters shares the stories of 10 such families. These wonderful people open their hearts and worlds up to us as they share the lessons they learned, the paths they chose, and the ideas that they embraced and tried. Now that each of their own children are living full, independent adult lives, they offer this gift to others in the hopes that sharing their story will ease the journey of another family that might be just starting out. Family Matters explores the spirit of these uncelebrated heroes in forging new pathways so that their son or daughter may live a full life in the community, included and embraced by those around them, regardless of the diagnosis and challenges. The book is an exploration of 'family matters' such as inclusion, education, transition and support networks, but more importantly, it is a declaration that indeed ‘family matters’ in moving our world forward. Although the experiences shared here are for families who live in Manitoba, the topics explored are universal. What worked in Manitoba may not work elsewhere, but then again, maybe it might if it is something not previously tried. Most advances in the world of disabilities have come from families who have been willing to push further and ask for more for their children, and that remains true today. Maybe within the covers of this book, you will find one new idea that will help your child to thrive!

Mark is just four days old when Carolyn's pride in her baby shifts to concern. Why won't he make eye contact? Why doesn't he cry? Where is his appetite? As a worried mother, Carolyn grasps for answers, but in 1960s North Carolina, "autism' is not yet a household word. <b>Untethered</b> traces the extraordinary forty-year evolution of both Mark and Carolyn as they struggle with what was then considered a baffling new disorder. When Mark further slips within the fortress of autism, Carolyn faces the unthinkable--institutionalizing her son. At the same time, Carolyn's marriage starts to unravel, forcing her to abandon her identity as a people-pleasing housewife and enter the working world as a single woman. Facing a life she never wanted or bargained for, Carolyn sets out on a path of self-discovery. Courageous, hopeful, and provocative, <b>Untethered</b> shows the unvarnished reality of one mother's experience with autism. It also teaches us that life's heartbreaks can illuminate the way toward spiritual growth and love

NINE INSTINCTIVE BEHAVIORS OF NEWBORN CHILD<br /><br />You've probably heard about the importance of skin to skin contact between mother and child.<br />An uninterrupted first hour is part of the plan for many birth mothers, but just what you can expect at the magic moment?<br />When labor and delivery occur without medication or intervention, we are privileged to witness the most primitive instincts in childhood is held between a boy and his mother.<br /><br />The observation of this natural process by experts from childbirth and breastfeeding have shown that healthy children, in the end, affected by drugs, follow a plan established deep in their primitive brain - to look for the chest and attach it all yourself. Just like any other newborn mammals, you instinctively move the body to the nipple with this goal in mind.<br />Children go through a series of nine instinctive behaviors - in exact order - in a process that takes at least an hour from the moments after birth. Each stage has its purpose and place in the journey, as listed below:<br /><br />Step 1: The cry of birth - just after birth<br />The sounds are all holding their breath to hear. The birth cry is distinctive because the baby draws its first breath in brand new lungs. He can cry as her body slips out of the birth canal, or when placed on the mother's belly.<br /><br />Fortunately, the old practice of keeping children on the head and knocked her bottom to illicit this cry been relegated to his place in history.<br /><br />Step 2: Relaxation - the first minutes<br />After the first cry, the child quickly becomes quiet and still, as it enters the relaxation phase. While resting against the body of his mother, it could be covered with a hot towel and wipe or blanket. The head should be left uncovered. While resting, its temperature, pulse and breathing is regulated by her mother's body - automatically and without conscious thought.
