Humans are the only species who drink the milk of another in order to survive. In making that choice we swap mortality for morbidity and the psychological and physical sequelae are well documented. The reasons why we do this are complex and it's a constant struggle for the modern woman to achieve a balance between what she gives to herself and what she gives to her infant...
Editor's Note: Patricia Hatherly is a trained homeopath and educator, well known around the world for her work in the 'milk' remedies in homeopathic medicine. Here she gives a 'homeopathic recipe' to enable mothers to continue giving mother's milk after weaning.

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...
Editor's Note: A beautiful video demonstrating the Montessori tools for babies. Perfect ideas if you have a young one in your family or on your gift list for the holiday season.

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.

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.
