In August 1992, I visited Jean Soprano in upstate New York. Jean recently obtained her license as a wildlife rehabilitator specializing in mammals. She does this work in her home, and this summer raised 11 infant skunks and 10 young raccoons. When I arrived, Jean took me to a cage where a 12-week-old raccoon was looking very ill...

Family & Parenting

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO), only 13% of mothers in the United States meet their recommendations for infant nutrition. What a woman eats and her health prior to conception affect both fetal development and breast milk...


Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: Breast Feeding will benefit the child for a lifetime and can help prevent some of the devastating conditions adults are now facing. The once assumed choice for a child now has conditions and interference in becoming the way we first feed our children. Look at the benefits to consider. And even when the ability of breast feeding is not possible, there are very good recommendations to fill the child's need that surpasses the canned choices on the shelf.


Organic Living

Cankles often accompany thick ankles. I personally was born with mine although they were cuter as an infant in diapers. But I turned them to my advantage by becoming a fitness instructor. Fitness teachers are expected to be "solid" and "muscular". My cankles are what my big brother used to call tree trunks. Cankles are genetically like a big nose -- meaning you just have to learn to live with them...

One thing I’ve realized from working with so many infants is that they are learning and understanding things much sooner than many parents realize. Using baby sign language, parents can start to communicate with their babies months earlier than they might otherwise...


Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: By communicating with sign language you can open up a new world at a much younger age. Some infants and toddlers are kinesthetic and visual learners. If your child is having difficulties communicating try sign language to break through their barriers. Andrea Ploehn has had excellent results using sign language with her four children.

I have heard a voice in my head since I was an infant crawling on the linoleum floor of my bedroom. It told me I was loved and cherished by God, and by the angelic beings and teachers in the spirit realms...




Editor's Note: Self care is such an important lesson parents can began teaching their infants soon after birth. Massage is a great technique to start with. Infant massage helps relieve colic, constipation, digestive problems, and insomnia. These massage techniques are gentle and easy to learn.

As American women are well aware, there has been a great deal of controversy lately about birth control and the freedom of women to make decisions about their reproductive health. Ina May Gaskin, founder of the Farm Midwifery Center in Tennessee and author of numerous books about how to achieve a safe home birth, argues that women’s choices are limited when they decide to deliver a child, as well...


Editor´s Note from Abbey Denaro: As with any other type of care, women have a choice and have always had a choice for the type of birthing experience they want. Whether you feel more comfortable in a hospital setting or in the comfort of your own home, it is up to you. Just make sure you are educated about the pro's and con's of both situations. Home births are great if you wish to have your chiropractor present to help support you and your newborn.
