The crying baby

Friday, October 27th, 2006

If your baby happens to cry a lot and you want help, you can contact the Crying Baby association who will inform you and help you cope with it.

For instance, you could get help from someone to buy your groceries, take care of your baby while you relax taking a bath or simply going for a walk with your baby.

Also, it is possible to offer your help, if you have the time and inclination of doing so.

Join RED

Saturday, October 14th, 2006

If you are already thinking on buying something, you might want to buy a (PRODUCT) RED. As of today Apple, Gap, Converse, Armani, and Motorola have lunched several (PRODUCT) RED items in which a portion of the profits made on these products will be donated to the Global fund to fight AIDS on Africa. For instance, you can buy a iPod nano (PRODUCT) REDâ„¢ Special Edition already available in Switzerland.

Home made recipe to increase milk production and its quality

Thursday, October 12th, 2006

I have a big baby girl, and with big I really mean BIG. So, the first two weeks, I needed to rely on formula to keep her satisfied. However, on the third week my sister visited us and gave me this homemade recipe that really helped me to increase my milk production and its quality.

Basics:
1 Liter of milk + half a cup (separately)
2 Tbsp of corn starch (You can buy it at Coop, it is world wide named as Maizena)
2 Tbsp of sugar

Additional:
Cinnamon Sticks (half a stick is normally enough)
Vanilla (half a bean is normally enough)
Crushed pecans, almonds or any other seeds of your preference. ( to taste)

Put in a pot one liter of milk on the stove in medium heat and add the additional ingredients of your choice. While it heats prepare a mixture in a cup of the sugar, corn starch and half a cup of milk. Stir until dissolved.

Once the milk is close to boiling, add the mixture and stir for about two minutes. Enjoy!
