Future Siblings Get Baby Crash Course at Woman’s

Posted by: Mommy-Go-Round Guest Blogger on Mar 03, 2015 in Babies

The arrival of a new baby can bring many changes to a family. Parents spend a lot of energy on preparations, and after the baby arrives, much of the family’s attention involves caring for the newborn.

All this change can be hard for older siblings to handle. It’s common for them to feel jealousy toward the newborn and to react to the upheaval by acting out.

But parents can prepare kids for an addition to the family, and Woman’s Hospital’s “A Baby is Coming” and “Tyke Hyke” classes educate the future big brothers and sisters how to get ready for a younger sibling.

Nate Dogg’s Rules to Live By

Posted by: Zelma Frederick on Feb 23, 2015 in Parenting, Toddlers

Recently, it hit me that just when I think my little Nate Dogg (2.5 years old) will never be able to resist getting into something (or be able to do something – ahem potty training), I am usually surprised at how quickly the “something” (whatever it is) changes.  For the months leading up to Christmas, we were told young Nate Dogg was not listening very well at daycare and from time to time was being a little rough – he also may or may not have bitten a friend.  We soon found out that his teacher would ask him to put on his listening ears during the day.  In response to being told to put on his listening ears, little Nate Dogg (to this day) will reach to each ear and say “click click.” And then he, having turned on his ears, is, in fact, a better listener.  It just makes sense when you think about it, doesn’t it?  Generally speaking, Nate Dogg “clicks” them on right as he is not listening and facing time in the chair – the time out chair that is.

Sharing the Love to Kids in Need

Posted by: Mommy-Go-Round Guest Blogger on Feb 09, 2015 in Parenting

dt.common.streams.StreamServerValentine’s Day is about more than chocolate hearts and roses. It’s a day to celebrate the love you have for a special someone, your family and your friends.

Dr. Betsy Buchert, an OB/GYN who practices at Woman’s Hospital, shows the power of her love every day with her work with Court-Appointed Special Advocates and the children it serves.

“It sounded like a really useful way to help,” Buchert told the Advocate while her husband Brian, a civil engineer, wrangled their sons. “We care so much about children; it really fits with us.”
