In the past, we have shared the nutritional benefits to a baby of being breastfed. For example, previous research shows breast milk protects babies against stomach bugs, chest infections, asthma and allergies while conferring other health advantages in later life. Breastfeeding cuts the risk of asthma by 37% in those under the age of three and 17% in those children of seven and older.

In the distant past, people (however wealthy) did not make a habit of having regular baths or showers. It was only in the middle of the twentieth century that bathrooms and shower rooms started to become so popular and now, over sixty years later, most in the Western world would not dream of going without their daily shower.

Baby bekommt Vitamin D oder Vitamin K mit Spritze

In the UK, parents of new babies are routinely asked if they would like their baby to have supplementary vitamin K. They are told that this is needed to make blood clot and prevent excessive internal bleeding. In 1961, after nearly 2 decades of research had been published, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommended giving Vitamin K shots after birth. This practice has been the standard of care in the USA ever since. As with any vaccine schedule today, there are ...

What type of eggs do you buy and how do you store them? I buy locally produced free range eggs here in England from my fruit and veggie shop where I pick them out of a large tray, packing them into smaller half dozen egg boxes.  They sit for sale on a shelf with no refrigeration but sell quickly with new stock arriving every couple of days.  I store them in an African craft-made wire basket on my kitchen dresser. As ...

In the winter months of the northern hemisphere, it becomes more important than ever to determine your child's vitamin D level. It is not known as the “feel good” hormone for nothing. If he or she were already deficient before the start of the colder months, then such levels could so easily be much worse now. Why do children need vitamin D?
