2 Stories....

Story #1: We went to some friends house for dinner last week. Our babies are about the same age, but ours, being a few weeks older is mobile now and into EVERYTHING he can get his hands on! While we were there he took their little girls humidifier completely apart. He tried to drink out of their doggy bowl twice. He pulled up on a shelf to get to the lit monitor and then knocked it off sending batteries flying. And even with our efforts to teach "gentle" behavior, he got excited and sorta hit their sweet baby girl right in the face. Will they ever have us back?

Story #2: I was house sitting for my family this week and I had the baby over there with me. Well... I had to use the restroom and their house is not totally child proof yet so I just took him in there with me. He was playing with a basket my Mother has in there (on the floor) and as I was finishing up I noticed that he had gotten into the basket... into a box of tampons... and he was now playing with it like a drum stick and talking and having the best time with his new-found "toy". He carried it, while crawling, into the living room and continued to use it to beat on his other toys. My Mom's reply, "Hey, it's sanitary". My Husbands reply, "He will never be proud to know that he ever even touched one of those. I'm married and I don't want to touch that." He continued... "And if you write a blog about this, he will never be proud of that either." And as a follow up story: We had some friends over (the3bryants bloggers) to grill out and swim and my son shared some of his tampons with their daughter. How sweet. Her Mom and I told them we would tell them this story when they are older.... "Guess what yall played with?" Ha!! Her daughter is older than my son and she keep thinking it was candy because it was in a wrapper and wanted her Father to open it!!! Funny times with our kids....

Had to share!!

Be a Healthy Mom

What to Inspect When You're Expecting
A handy health checklist for pregnancy

The cause for alarm is real: pregnancy is the most critical time for establishing your baby's well being. It's also the time when you're vulnerable to the alphabet stew of harmful chemicals in the world, which are increasingly making their way into women's bodies, wombs and breast milk. But there is good news: Simple measures like eating organic, nutrient-rich foods before and during pregnancy can help safeguard you and your child while being kinder to the planet. And today it's easier than ever to find products that promote healthy pregnancies and peace of mind.

Start by taking a few of the 10 steps below -- along with that all-important vow to seek eco-progress, not perfection. It's a great beginning.
1. Say yes to organic food
2. Get pretty without chemicals - Use natural or organic personal-care products
3. Cotton to organic cotton (without pesticides or insecticides)
4. Furnish wisely - Teflon- and Scotchgard-type water-and-stain repellents, which contain harmful chemicals. Also try to avoid furnishings with polyurethane foam, a product that's often treated with toxic fire retardants called PBDEs
5. Meet the new rules (kinda the same as the old rules) - Don't smoke cigarettes, drink alcohol, use illicit drugs, guzzle caffeinated drinks -- or clean the kitty litter. Avoid pumping GAS or try NOT to breath it in while near the pump. Avoid changing ink or toner while pregnant. Make your own cleaning agents with these recipes from EarthShare and EarthWays, two nonprofit environmental organizations.
6. Shun mercury - (Here's a complete list of mercury in fish.)
7. Let bugs and weeds be - Pregnancy is no time to use pesticides or insecticides
8. Pick your pans - Teflon pans are easy to clean, but they're manufactured with chemicals like perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), a water contaminant and suspected carcinogen that may also cause birth defects. Use non-Teflon pans with a splash of olive oil instead. Five-cent solution: Shop secondhand for cast iron, glass, or stainless steel pans.
9. Renovate later - toxins like lead, VOC's, and even asbestos can be very dangerous for you and your baby
10. If it stinks, it stinks - When something smells terrible, it often is terrible for you. EXAMPLES: cigarette and cigar smoke, bleaches, conventional household cleansers, refinery smoke, solvents, paints, paint thinners, glues, oven cleaners, air fresheners, vinyl shower curtains and even new carpets!

AtlantaMams's Note: I was told by a friend, who has a masters in public health, that Gerber and Medela do not use BPA in any of their baby products.
And I would also like to add that it is safest NOT TO USE PLASTIC IN THE MICROWAVE, especially while pregnant. Use corning wear or porcelain in the microwave.
