    Newborn Sleep: The Importance of Self-Soothing | Parents

    One of the most important skills a baby can learn is the fine art of falling asleep on his own. In the first 8 to 12 weeks of life, if your baby can do this easily, by all means, start to practice putting him down awake and letting him fall into a deep sleep without your extra help. If, however he seems to really need the extra rocking, body contact or sucking to fall asleep, these early weeks are the ones to give him just that. Babies like adults, go through cycles of deep sleep, light sleep and brief wakings throughout the night. Adults hardly notice these shifts and generally…

    Pregnant Dad: Giving Birth As A Transgender Man | Sex Map of Britain

    I’m a transgender man currently under the care of a gender identity clinic. Please refer to me as he, and him, and make an effort to use gender-neutral terms regarding pregnancy and birth, ie, pregnant people rather than pregnant women. I will be father to my child as will my husband, Alex, so please do not refer to either of us as a mother, or mum. This is extremely important for my mental and emotional wellbeing. Like the weirdest pregnancy announcement ever known to man. Gender of the day. Suck on this, Beyonce. All my memories of my childhood are here. This is the best part of the woods, because…

    How To: Write A Birth Plan! | Kristen from Millennial Moms

    – Hey, guys, Kristen from Millennial Moms, and today we’re gonna be talking about how to write a birth plan. I feel like birth plans are an extremely important part of the labor and birthing process for two reasons. First, they help you mentally prepare for going into labor, and second, they let everyone who’s there know what your expectations are. I have my birth plan from when I had my daughter Chel, and I probably rewrote this thing about five times. There’s so many different templates you can download online. I went through all of those, but eventually I just wrote everything down. So today I’m gonna tell you…
