Taking Stress Out of Waiting to Get Pregnant

A lot of factors contribute to the success of a woman getting pregnant but it is quite difficult to determine exactly the duration of having a successful pregnancy.

Some factors that should be considered for couples who want to have a baby are intercourse or sexual contact that are timed following schedule of ovulation and cycle of women, and quality and quantity of sperm. In addition, couples should consider a healthy lifestyle free from smoking, alcohols, and drugs, a balanced and nutritious diet, and maintaining a normal weight for their age. These factors are more important for women who will bear the baby in their womb for nine months. Taking folate supplements and multivitamins, and avoiding caffeine also contribute significantly to a healthy childrearing. read more

Fish Oil or Krill Oil for Children?

Cooking oil has been generally used in wide area of food preparation, but a growing number of people are becoming more conscious of achieving a healthy body. While olive and coconut oil are some healthier options, people look into using alternative supplements to prevent diseases.

They say that taking a tablespoon of fish oil can make diseases avoidable, but what exactly is fish oil? Fish oil are supplements commonly used routinely by some people because of their belief that the components of fish oil can prevent cardiovascular diseases. The fact is, fish oil contains high amounts of linolenic fatty acids or Omega-3, and arachidonic acids. But preventing cardiac diseases cannot be attributed to these components according to evidences from research studies. The presumptive benefit of fish oil is only used by producers to market their products, and their claims are not even supported by clinical studies to prove the desirable effect. This led researchers to study other supplements to replace fish oil. read more

Talk to your children about death

Couple of weeks ago my daughter’s goldfish died. Death of a anyone or anything can be very difficult for children to cope with. She kept asking us why did her goldfish died. We did what came naturally;we told her the truth.

It can be very difficult to be honest with with young children but that is all it took for our daughter to understand why her goldfish died.

We did three things that helped her to understand why her goldfish died.

1. Be honest
I mentioned this already but not doing this could lead more sadness and confusion. Children are
very smart and they know when we lie to them or make something up. Telling lies could cause our children not to understand the concept of death. Telling your kids that a someone who died went on vacation will not work. They are smarter than that and much smarter than we think. read more
