Menopause Awareness Month

September is Menopause Awareness Month. Even if you’re not in Menopause, you probably know someone who is dealing with it. You may have seen their ups and downs. When does Menopause begin? Menopause usually begins around the ages of 51-52. Typically, if a woman has not had a menstrual cycle over the course of a year, she is in Menopause. What are some “typical” Menopause symptoms? The most common symptom experienced by 80 percent of women during Menopause is hot flashes (daytime) or night sweats. Some women may also experience muscle and joint pain (arthralgia), mood swings, “brain fog,” loss of libido, and weight gain (to name a few). Many women begin to develop insulin resistance and diabetes, osteoporosis, and arthritis, all caused by hormonal deficiencies. Intimacy can become painful due to vaginal dryness.

Traveling With a Little One?

Traveling with a toddler or baby can be stressful. Below is some information when taking your baby’s milk/formula/juice through security. Notify the TSA Officer: Inform the TSA officer at the beginning of the screening process that you carry formula, breast milk, and juice in excess of 3.4 ounces in your carry-on bag. These liquids are typically screened by X-ray. Formula, breast milk, and juice for infants or toddlers are permitted in reasonable quantities through the security checkpoint. Remove these items from your carry-on bag to be screened separately from the rest of your belongings. Officers may ask you to open the container and/or have you transfer a small quantity of the liquid to a separate empty container or dispose of a small quantity, if feasible. Inform the TSA officer if you do not want the formula, breast milk, and/or juice to be X-rayed or opened. 3-1-1 Liquids Rule Exemption: Formula, breast milk, juice in quantities greater than 3.4 ounces or 100 milliliters are allowed in carry-on baggage and do not need to fit within a quart-sized bag. Remove these items from your carry-on bag to be screened separately from the rest of your belongings. You do not need to travel ...

August is Breastfeeding Awareness Month

Every woman’s journey to motherhood is different, but one of the first decisions a new mom makes is how to feed her child. When you choose to breastfeed, you make an investment in your baby’s future. Breastfeeding allows you to make food that is perfect for your baby. Your milk gives your baby a healthy start that will last a lifetime. There are many benefits to breastfeeding: Mothers that breastfeed their children have a better weight status than moms that use artificial baby milk. They also have a lower risk of developing Type 2 diabetes, breast and ovarian cancer, and postpartum depression. Children that are breastfed typically score higher on IQ tests and are sick less often. They also have a lower risk for developing respiratory and gastrointestinal infections, asthma, obesity, Type 2 diabetes, and SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome). Mothers of breastfed babies enjoy a special bond through the skin-to-skin contact that breastfeeding involves. A breastfeeding family can save approximately $1,500 per year on formula costs ...
