According to Amber Edwards, certified lactation consultant ""ketogenic diets do tend to work very well for weight loss. Sometimes, when something works well, it can work too well, and that is the case with a keto diet.  a sharp drop in weight during lactation may cause your milk production to slow or cease depending on how much weight you're losing. "You may think that with all of the fat you're eating that it would be safe and healthy, and it can be, but you have to lose weight slowly for that."

Lucky Mum shares terrifying car crash photos to warn other parents of the dangers of making THIS car seat mistake

It is important for every parent to secure their babies in the car seat the right way so that in the case of an impact, the baby is not badly affected.
Setting up the car seat can be one of the most stressful tasks a new parent faces.
It's one of the most important pieces of equipment we buy to protect our little ones, so making sure they are installed correctly is incredibly important.
But despite the vital role it plays, some people do not know all the safety features their seat offers which could save their child's life.
And there is one feature in particular which could be the difference between life and death in

Bbaby sitters arrested for shutting crying baby in fridge and posting video to Snapchat



Just incredible! and to think that the baby sitter is a blood relative of this child... For those blaming the parents, teenagers in my opinion are old enough to babysit. Most mums leave babies at one point or the other with teenage siblings to run errands and they do a good job. A teenage that shoves a crying baby inside the fridge should pray s/he is not from hell. 
Two babysitters have been arrested after shocking Snapchat footage emerged of them putting a baby in a fridge while laughing.
During the short clip a crying baby is picked up from the floor and put in the fridge, before the door is slammed shut.
A girl is heard saying: "Bye!" as she leaves the child, who is wearing just a nappy, in the

Good afternoon.
This is my very first pregnancy and at 20weeks, am suffering from sugar. My anus bulged out. Can't think of what to take to eliminate it. Nor what food is best for me. At this stage, I hardly go hungry so only encourage myself with yogurt. Which I have to stop due to my excess sugar.

Sickening Story of How School Bus Driver Tried To Kidnap Pupils In the Bus



If Nigerian parents will have to start sleeping with one eye open after putting kids in a school bus then na real wa! for Nigeria. What could be worse abeg? You See this life? While the dad was out there working selflessly for kids he didn't know, God sent Angels to watch over his own kids and help them. We should never be weary of doing good, never worry about the fact that you work selflessly and no one recognizes or acknowledges you, just remind yourself all the time, that God's reward is better and more preferable. When he wants to bless or help anyone, he doesn't need man's help to do that.
 A Nigerian lady, Anazodo Caroline shared this shocking story on her wall to save lives. She says:

'Two days ago, my nieces, the "Igwe girls", were picked from the house to school as usual. The school bus driver who has been driving for the school for 4 years, accompanied by a school teacher picked them and proceeded to the next location to pick other kids for school which is typical.'
On getting to the home of the other kids, the teacher had to go In to get the kids from their apartment (which I wonder why the bus was accompanied by just 1 teacher, leaving kids with the driver, but again, who knows the heart of man). 
Guess what? After the teacher left to bring the other kids to join my nieces to school, before she got back, the driver had sped off with my nieces already. The teacher came out with the other kids and the bus, driver and my little girls were no where to be found. 
He switched off his phone while the innocent girls had no idea what was going on. I mean, what do

Though I didn't agree to sleepovers, I still allowed their regular visits. Little did I know my son's heart was being poisoned towards his mom - Naija mum

From my parenting mind: Read below. ..

"I'm sick and tired of how you control my life, I have a brain. I have a right to anything I want to do, leave me alone and stop controlling my life! Xxxxx's mom doesn't treat her children like you do, they do anything they want, whenever. She's a better mom than you".

Those were words I received from my first child and son precisely 8years and 9months ago. He was barely 8years old

Whenever I'm confronted with discussions on challenges of raising kids in foreign cultures, those words above always reverberated through my mind.  Now, I smile over it.

Please come down memory lane with me

We had recently relocated to Rio de Janeiro and the rudest shock we received on arrival was language barrier. Those

Below is what a pediatrician wrote to Nigerian parents fond of rushing to give palm oil as first aid whenever a child ingests poisonous substances. Do you know that giving ordinary water or milk is better than palm oil? Read below...
I received a call on Thursday from an ATP member.....that's not unusual......"We are being referred to LUTH from General Hospital....a little boy".....As usual my response "Yes bring the child...straight to our CHER.....I am not in CHER but let me know when you get there" I usually will try and pass through to know what is going on!
Thursday was extremely busy....our final year medical students were doing their clinical exams.....We did not finish until 6pm! Tired and worn out....then had to briefly attend the wake-keeping ceremony of one of my friends and colleague Paediatrician's mother.....I completely forgot about the child till today.
When I remembered, I called to know how far.....I knew she did not end up in LUTH because

The best way to prevent teen pregnancy is to educate them on the use of condoms.Telling the youth to abstain is a failed strategy, as they will have it anyway - Church Leader argued



A counselor and elder of the church of Pentecost, New Achimota District in Ghana, Mr Nii Armah Hammond, has admonished stakeholders to allow teenagers who can’t control their libido to be allowed to practice safe s*x.

The respectable church leader, was speaking on Ahotor fm during a program aimed at educating the youth.

Hammond believes that the best means of preventing teenage pregnancy and its associated complications is through protected s*x. As he puts it, the stigma associated with teenage pregnancy affect the family concern long after the act and in most cases making the products of such pregnancy liabilities for the nation.

Telling the youth to abstain is a failed strategy, as they will have it anyway, he argued, so the best way to prevent teen pregnancy is to educate them on the use of condoms.


*Hmmm, do you agree? 
For me, I can't imagine myself teaching my child how to practice safe sex or how to wear a condom. I know I taught the girls how to wear sanitary pads, demonstrated with underpants and some pads, also taught how to properly dispose used pads. I did that happily and

Can a woman get aroused, reach orgasm while breastfeeding her baby?

Image result for can a woman orgasm while nursing a baby?

Yes! many women feel sexually aroused while nursing their babies, some even to the point of orgasm. Sexual feeling when breastfeeding sounds weird right? but it's natural for some women. It happens and they have no control.

“In a 2000 study of breastfeeding women, 40.5% of the participants reported feeling sexually aroused at some point during infant suckling. 16.7% reported being aroused frequently during breastfeeding. In a more recent paper that reviewed several studies between 33-50% of women described breastfeeding as erotic (and 25% of those women said they felt guilty about it).

If you’ve experienced or are experiencing this sexual stimulation during nursing, and you’re

WHAT'S THE BEST AGE TO GET YOUR CHILD A MOBILE PHONE?



The reason most parents give young children phones is to keep in touch at all times. Some parents give phones to kids from when they are 8 years old, others wait until these kids are teenagers. For my family, we wait until Secondary School. In Primary School, you use mummy's phone for all communications with friends and classmates. For some families, the child has to get to Senior Secondary School before owning a phone, for some families, getting University Admission or any

TIP: HOW TO MANAGE DEMANDING YOUNG CHILDREN


Kids are insatiable, they are just being kids and will want to have everything beautiful if they could. Never be deceived into thinking that you can give children everything they want. YOU CAN'T. They want the shoe their friend is wearing, they want the bag other kids at the birthday party are wearing, they want they type of sneakers a girl at church is wearing. They also know how to make parents feel inadequate and guilty. 
Don't allow any child  or anyone to make you feel that way. It may be their opinion, that you are too strict, too protective and all but it doesn't make it true.

You are the responsible one.  Firmness, correction, discipline is not easy especially in these days, but it is needed!

I told my children that I wasn't here to be their friend only, that I am their support system, their care taker, their parent. I am the one that will supply your needs, and sometimes your wants, the one that
