A few weeks ago my wife told me that she had sent photos of our children to a store, via Facebook, to see if they were taken to go out on a solidarity calendar that would be sold with the intention of obtaining funds that would be used to continue fighting against cancer . The store was (is) Otta Kids, a shop that is in my city, which together with Lullaby, a photographer specialized in mothers and children, devised the creation of the aforementioned solidarity calendar, whose funds would go to the TV3 Marathon this year.
Pope Francis has just announced, through the apostolic letter "Misericordia et misera", which authorizes absolution, from now on, to "those who have sought the sin of abortion." He had already announced that the sin of abortion could be forgiven and after granting the grace temporarily during the Jubilee of Mercy (inaugurated on December 8, 2015 and closed last Sunday), today he announced it indefinitely.
Today I want to talk about the fictional case of kidnapped children because their parents did not take care of them. The kidnappers are characters with good purposes of a play.

It is difficult to understand that someone can leave a baby only in a car, but the truth is that unfortunately, more happens than we think and many children die from this cause.

We have already spoken on multiple occasions about the importance of skin-to-skin contact in the first moments of the baby's life.

Intestinal parasitic infections, commonly known as "worms," cause a considerable number of infested children in any country. Although with the right treatment they disappear, they are annoying and we want to avoid them, sometimes not with the right argument. It is one of the reasons that parents argue most when it comes to limiting the consumption of sweets by children, but do the goodies really cause worms?
As Maitena wisely conveys in this vignette, there comes a time in the lives of many women who have to choose between them and their professional career or the upbringing of their children. Well, some may choose and others have no choice but to work. But we are going to focus on those who do have some freedom of maneuver in their lives.
When you embark on the huge "project" of having a baby, a totally unknown world opens before you: you learn things about your body that you didn't know before, your mind suddenly surprises you with thoughts of what exactly that moment you are living would be like with a child next door and you are filled with questions and expectations that you never had before.
Capitalism is the enemy of Breastfeeding, proclaims this video made by a Venezuelan television. The language and some of the conclusions are risky, unprovable. Talking about "Capitalism" is excessive, although there are very strong economic interests that have made real the extension of artificial breastfeeding.
As one of my companions commented, this type of news provokes mixed feelings, because you are glad that everything possible has been done so that a baby is born well but, on the other hand, it causes you discomfort that your mother's vital organs have been maintained working, even though she already had brain death.
This week the review of the parents' blogs is very special for me. A couple of weeks ago I was announcing a book that just went on sale, "A new motherhood", edited by OB STARE.

The benefits of delayed umbilical cord clamping in newborns are several, both for the mother and the baby, in the short and long term. This practice is part of the recommendations in the first hour of life of the baby. In the document entitled "Beyond Survival: Comprehensive practices during childbirth care, beneficial for the nutrition and health of mothers and children", of the Pan American Health Organization (the regional office of the World Health Organization ), a section dedicated to the recommendations about the umbilical cord cut is offered.
After six months, the baby will begin to be curious about everything around him and accompany that curiosity with small physical achievements. He will start crawling, then crawling, sitting alone and later trying to stand up. In this stage of discoveries, the floor is the best playground for the baby.
What would be of us without pasta recipes? We like them so much and eat them so well that we are always thinking of ideas to renew our recipe book to continue getting it right with our children, while we take the opportunity to introduce other foods in their diet. This week we have prepared an original recipe for Russian pasta salad, in which we will replace the classic potatoes with sharks or pasta coditos.
