Millions of new brain cells are formed every single day to support your child's IQ, memory, attention span, and language development. Importantly, the same strategies that nurture these abilities can also reduce the odds of autism and ADHD, which now impact 1 in 10 children.

Creating A Cleaner & Greener Home

Creating A Cleaner & Greener Home

Your baby's development relies on more than just nutrition. The environment they are brought into is also important.

Simple changes in your home, such as choosing organic and avoiding harsh chemicals, can make a big impact on creating a greener home.

  • Choose organic fruits and veggies to minimize pesticide exposure
  • Use glass or stainless steel for food storage instead of plastic
  • Avoid toxic cleaning supplies, hairspray, and perfumes
Remember: what you inhale, your baby inhales. Let's create a clean and safe home for them. 🌱

"When mothers were Vitamin D deficient during pregnancy, their children were more than twice as likely to be autistic. Vitamin D reduces inflammation and preterm birth, both of which are significant risk factors for autism"

The Importance of Vitamin D for Pregnancy and Babies

The Importance of Vitamin D for Pregnancy and Babies

Vitamin D is vital for both pregnant women and babies, but 98% of pregnant women are deficient in it. To ensure proper levels, pregnant women should take at least 5,000 IU per day, while babies should take 400 IU per day starting their first year. Studies have found that babies who take vitamin D supplements are less likely to get sick compared to those who do not.

Why is Vitamin D important?

  • Crucial for pregnant women and babies
  • Most pregnant women are deficient in it
  • Babies should start supplementing from their first year
  • Studies show it can help prevent sickness 😷

Importance of preserving babies' microbiome

Importance of preserving babies' microbiome

Did you know that taking care of your microbiome during pregnancy is crucial for your baby's health?

Here are some tips to keep in mind:

  • Avoid unnecessary antibiotics during pregnancy and your baby's first year of life
  • Start your baby on prebiotics and probiotics after they are born
  • Eating healthy during pregnancy sets a good foundation for your baby's microbiome

Remember, your baby's microbiome is delicate and needs to be protected. Don't "eat for two", but instead, make sure to focus on giving your baby the best start possible. 😊

CURATOR'S NOTE

Raising smart and healthy children starts during pregnancy and early childhood where even the smallest of changes can have lasting impacts on your baby's brains and development. Nurturing brain development during pregnancy and your first years of life is crucial and is a small window where millions of new brain cells are formed every day.
