How Many Days of Torture Would You Make Your Baby Endure?

by RealMomofNJ on May 09, 2013 in Parent Stuff, Safety Info

So RealBoy has his third ISR lesson last night. It was only slightly better than his second lesson, which was actually worse than his first. The problem is undoubtedly that the instructor is a stranger; he LOVES the water otherwise. He now starts to cry as soon as he sees the pool, and he doesn’t really let up…

ISR Has Begun!

by RealMomofNJ on May 07, 2013 in Safety Info

Remember when I mentioned we signed RealBoy up for baby swimming classes with Infant Swimming Resource? He had had his first ISR lesson yesterday! Here is how it went:

Yeah. This is how poor RealBoy was for the duration of his 10-minute session (all sessions are 10 minutes, it wasn’t cut short…

Suck It Up and Start Talking

As it did for many parents, the Stubenville rape trial got me thinking. Not only about rape and what to teach my kids about it, but about sexual abuse in general. It’s a really uncomfortable topic, but it’s something that should not be overlooked or pushed aside. Horrible things can happen to anyone at any time. That is a…

And Now a Word From an Anesthesiologist

I’m a minimal-intervention kind of gal. I avoid medicine and medical treatment unless absolutely necessary. Childbirth did not qualify as a case in which either were absolutely necessary, so I had my son without drugs (it didn’t work out with my daughter. Long story). But I expected a lot of pressure from the healthcare professionals to “just get the…

ID-ing Your Kid for Crowded Places

by RealMomofNJ on August 02, 2012 in Safety Info, Tips

We took P to a fair recently, and my blood ran cold when I realized that we’d all be effed if she were separated from us in the huge crowd. She’s too little to know our phone numbers or to look for a cop. She’d probably panic and cry, and then she wouldn’t be able to tell anyone who…

LactMed: Drugs & Lactation Database

by RealMomofNJ on July 13, 2012 in Breastfeeding, Resources, Safety Info

I’ve been sick this week. Really sick. I don’t like taking medicine in general, but when I’m pregnant or breastfeeding, I take nothing unless I absolutely must. Like, I have to be one step away from hospitalization. I know that is extreme, but that’s me.

Well, I was a total disaster this time. I wanted to be sure it was…
