Safe Sleep Guidelines 2016

The Smart Crib

Posted by on 10/22/2016 to Health

It’s a sound new parents know all too well: The middle-of-the-night wailing of an unsettled baby who needs to be cradled, rocked, cooed and lulled back to sleep for, they hope, a few more hours. For the fussiest babies, it is a ritual that can happen multiple times per night.

A Los Angeles pediatrician fears that’s causing an exhaustion epidemic among new parents and has developed a technological fix that he claims could give them more precious shut-eye. Snoo is an electronic bassinet that gently rocks from side to side and emits white noise to help ease a baby to slumber. The smart crib can also hear when a baby cries in the night and automatically adjust to quiet them back to rest without a parent’s intervention.

The rocking motion and rhythmic sounds of the crib are meant to mimic the womb, a familiar environment for newborns that causes them to relax and fall asleep, said Harvey Karp, who co-founded smart-tech company Happiest Baby with his wife, Nina Montée Karp. He has written several parenting guides, including “The Happiest Baby on the Block.”

Snoo is meant to be used during the first six months after a baby is born, before they are able to crawl and potentially escape its low walls. Unlike human-propelled cradles, Snoo plugs into an electric outlet and moves steadily throughout the night and emits the sound of either soft rain or the womb. Three built-in microphones detect when a baby begins to cry, triggering the bassinet to pick up speed and increase its volume in an effort to calm the baby.

It also comes with a “Snoo sack” that swaddles the baby and clips to the bed, preventing the little one from rolling onto his or her stomach, which Karp said can be dangerous. Karp says the crib does not claim to prevent sudden infant death syndrome, or SIDS, a condition in which an otherwise healthy babies dies in his or her sleep for often inexplicable reasons.

The bassinet has been vetted by product safety regulators but has not been reviewed medically, Karp said. It is being displayed for other physicians for the first time this weekend at the American Academy of Pediatrics national conference in San Francisco.

Cell Tracking For Parents

Cell Tracking For Parents
A cell phone tracking app is not a science fiction fantasy anymore. It is real, legal, and very affordable. The cell phone monitoring app is easy to install and easy to operate for anyone, even for those without any technical knowhow. The spy app for mobile has several uses for people from different walks of life. In fact, the spy software for mobile can help to keep people safe and secure and even help safeguard a person's phone in the event of a theft. With features such as spy GPS tracking, it becomes even easier to keep track of the movements of the person with the phone, which is useful for many reasons. 

One of the biggest benefactors of a cell phone tracking app are parents of young children or teenagers. Today, it is next to impossible to keep a child away from a smartphone. With the mounting peer pressure, as well as the promise of security that comes from knowing that a child can be contacted at any point in time, parents are tempted to give their children smartphones at younger ages. However, with a smartphone connected to the internet (which it will always be), children may not yet know how to handle the responsibility that comes with it. For parents who want to ensure that their children are safe from online bullies, child predators, and other unsavory characters, there is nothing better than a cell phone monitoring app for peace of mind.The spy app for mobile helps parents to know exactly where their children are located at any given point in time with the help of the spy GPS tracking. This feature relays information about the phone's location even if there is no WiFi connection at that point in time. It does this by connecting with availableWiFi networks, triangulating the location through that data, using that as a reference point to identify the location of the phone. Such hi-tech features ensures that children do not get into trouble anymore and parents can know if and when children go somewhere they shouldn't.The spy app for mobile can also be used by corporates. By installing it on corporate phones that are given to employees to use, corporates can ensure that their employees are staying productive on the job and not using the phone for unnecessary personal calls. They can also ensure that there is no corporate espionage or theft of confidential data. The spy software for mobile also helps to locate a phone if it has been misplaced or stolen. The location can be easily found through the GPS tracking system. Also, if the phone has been stolen, the confidential and private data on the phone can be erased with just a click of button from a remote location, which helps to safeguard the privacy of crucial data.

ScreenAgers
Are you watching kids scroll through life, with their rapid-fire thumbs and a six-second attention span? Physician and filmmaker Delaney Ruston saw that with her own kids and learned that the average kid spends 6.5 hours a day looking at screens. She wondered about the impact of all this time and about the friction occurring in homes and schools around negotiating screen time—friction she knew all too well. 

In SCREENAGERS, as with her award-winning documentaries on mental health, Delaney takes a deeply personal approach as she probes into the vulnerable corners of family life, including her own, to explore struggles over social media, video games, academics and internet addiction. Through poignant, and unexpectedly funny stories, along with surprising insights from authors, psychologists, and brain scientists, SCREENAGERS reveals how tech time impacts kids’ development and offers solutions on how adults can empower kids to best navigate the digital world and find balance.

TESTIMONIALS"My husband and I have just been very concerned about this issue for some time, and as I'm a geneticist at UCSF Children's Hospital Oakland, I'm very interested in the science behind it.

Introducing The Cybex Cloud Q Carseat

CLOUD Q REAR-FACING INFANT CAR SEAT

Luxury Travel redefined

The Cloud Q is the latest innovative result of our ongoing research. The rear-facing infant carrier builds and improves on the strong tradition of previous CYBEX premium infant car seats, with a ground-breaking, ergonomic design offering a full-recline position outside of the car. The result is a perfect symbiosis of phenomenal protection and a new kind of travel system for outstanding safety inside and outside of the car. 

  • Ergonomic design with full-recline position outside of the car
  • Removable newborn inlay for premature and very small babies
  • 11-position height-adjustable headrest with integrated harness guides
  • Telescopic Linear Side-impact Protection (L.S.P. System)
  • Integrated XXL foldaway sun canopy
  • Travel system ready by adding CYBEX and other brand strollers

Thanks to a ground-breaking ergonomic design, the Cloud Q rear-facing infant car seat easily converts to a full-recline position outside of the car. This innovative seat is complemented by a telescopic linear side-impact protection system, full-recline angle also inside the car, and an XXL canopy offering sun protection with UVP50+. The 11-position height-adjustable headrest of the infant car seat simultaneously changes the harness length and sitting angle. As a result, the infant car seat grows with the child.

Emergency Plan

Posted by Posh Baby on 11/24/2015 to Health

You may have heard the news about a giant fault line in the Pacific Ocean off the west coast that is well overdue for a massive earthquake. I happen to live in the pacific northwest (PNW), and this has now been on my mind for almost a year. At first I didn’t really think too much of it, but after the last news report came out and people really starting freaking out, I started thinking more practically about creating a family plan for what we will do in an emergency.
