Some few years ago I was in the position you are in, torn in between breastfeeding my baby or not. I wanted to retain my beautiful breast caps and wanted my little princess to grow to be a healthy child. Breastfeeding is very vital to you and your child. There is nothing better than a mother’s milk. It contains all the nutrients that your child needs to grow healthy and build strong immunity against diseases. Research shows that children who are breast fed are healthier than those who are formula-fed. Other than breastfeeding, the size of your breast can be affected by your genetics, age and the posture you use to breast feed your baby. The way of holding a baby during breastfeeding can negatively or positively affect the size of your breast. Holding your baby in the right way and exercises will help you regain your original breast size. Do not deprive your child a healthy life, breast feed your child.
Remember, one way to keep your breasts firm is by exercising. By strengthening the underlying muscle it helps them look firmer. And when all else fails an operation for tightening sagging skin can be your last resort. A breast lift tightens skin around the chest area and removes sagging tissue while working to lift and define breasts. A breast lift with implants restores fullness via silicone implants. But surgery has it's own lists of pros and cons so decide carefully. What are some other advantages of breastfeeding? Click here to see more.

As a new mother you always blame breast feeding problems on yourself. It could just be your baby needs an alignment. "With the birth process becoming more and more an intervening procedure ... the chiropractic adjustment becomes even more important to the child's future," said the late Larry Webster, D.C., of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association.
"I started finding the breastfeeding problems due to misalignment of the neck and head bones causing babies the inability to breast feed properly," a Louisiana Chiropractor said.
After the first week of using a painless activator, the mom said she could see the difference.
"His head was a lot straighter on his own," she said. "He actually was sleeping better. He was only sleeping one to two hours, and he started sleeping two to three hour stretches."
Of a random group of 1,250 babies examined 5 days after birth, 211 suffered from vomiting, hyperactivity and sleeplessness spinal abnormalities were found in 95% of this group. Spinal adjustment "frequently resulted in immediate quieting, cessation of crying, muscular relaxation and sleepiness.
No matter what disease or condition you have, you can benefit from a healthy spine. Spinal health can be as important for your overall healing as proper nutrition. Only a chiropractic spinal checkup can tell.
Among the many things contributing to your health: the quality of the air, food and water you take in; how you handle emotional stress; your inherited weaknesses and strengths; your use of drugs; exercise; and relaxation-a healthy spine is absolutely essential. In some people it is a major factor and can make the difference between a life of health, strength and vitality or a life of disease, weakness and disability.

I believe that he should be charged and sued according to the amount of money he stole from the government. No scientists that work at universities should be allowed to handle the $890,000 on their own… They should have the university’s financial officers deal with the money in a closed account. Dr. Das was given the money directly instead of going through the university, which is why he was able to get his hands on it. I personally don’t want to be paying taxes to the government so they can pay people who steal the money. This is very serious (and a serious amount of money), so I am hoping this man receives either jail time or hefty fines.

The reason Children’s Healthcare decided to release these ads was a survey that they conducted in Atlanta, Georgia. They surveyed families with overweight children and 75 percent of parents did not see their children’s weight a problem. According to the data from the survey, over one-million children are considered obese in Georgia alone.
The campaign is called Strong4Life and is planned to cost $50 million over five years. The Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Georgia Foundation recently donated $95,000 to help the cause, but Children’s Healthcare is expected to pay for at least $25,000,000 leaving the remainder for donations.
There are more advertisements upcoming and will feature different children from around Georgia. It’s sad that the country has to start a campaign to stop childhood obesity, but if that is what it takes, I am a supporter. Childhood obesity starts at home with what parents feed their kids, the amount of exercise children get, and if they have caring parents. Also, schools are removing physical education and recess time due to the costs. It is sad that the United States has to come to this, but I’m hoping organizations such as Strong4Life can turn this around.
