Tried, Tested & True: Soothing Our Babies Naturally

Maybe it’s because I did not have a daughter and just haven’t experienced the cutesy side of things, but I personally don’t really understand novelty pacifiers. You know, the ones with studded crystals and names printed on them? Not only do I not really understand the aesthetic appeal, but I also question how then can even be sold, when there are clearly some much better choices on the market.

Natursutten, a company based out of Denmark, has developed a pacifier that is made of 100% pure rubber! They are hygienic because they are molded in one piece, which means there is no joining or crack where dirt and bacteria can accumulate. Those concerned with the latex allergy associated with rubber can rest easy as Natursutten has removed the protein that on rare occasions can provoke a latex allergy.

My 1-year-old has been using the Natursutten since he came home from the hospital, and I absolutely love this product. It’s just another great way to limit the toxins that children are exposed to in our everyday products.

Tina O’Brien & Ryan Thomas Take Scarlett To Football Challenge

Tina O’Brien & Ryan Thomas Take Scarlett To Football Challenge

Coronation Street couple Tina O’Brien and Ryan Thomas took their 6-month old daughter Scarlett to the Hollyoaks Football Challenge in Chester, Sunday (May 17).

Tina held Scarlett, who was wrapped in a colorful blanket, and watched as Ryan play in the game.

O’Brien, 25, admits she went through a difficult time after Scarlett was born.

“I felt really frumpy, not just because of the weight, but because you’re in a transitional period as a new mum,” adding, “Your life becomes totally devoted to your child, which is amazing, but you end sitting around in slobs covered in sick. I felt unattractive, but I was expecting to feel that way. I felt hormonal as well.”

Sarah Jessica Parker Praises Surrogate Mom

Sarah Jessica Parker Praises Surrogate Mom

Sarah Jessica Parker has nothing but praise for the surrogate mom who is carrying her twin daughters, calling her a “strong, bright, independent, thoughtful, caring, gracious and generous” woman.

In an interview set to air tomorrow, the Sex and the City star tells Access Hollywood that she and her husband Matthew Broderick turned to surrogacy after they struggled to conceive a second baby.

“We have been trying to expand our family for a number of years and we actually have explored a variety of ways of doing so,” Sarah Jessica, 44, says. “It would have been odd to have made this choice if I was able to have had successful pregnancies since my son’s birth.”

She revealed that soon-to-be big brother James, 6, knows all about the babies on the way: “I’ve been pretty candid with him. I kind of chartered my own course with him because we wanted to keep this quiet and so I wanted to be very careful about telling him so he wasn’t burdened with a secret. On the other hand, I wanted him to have time to adjust to the idea of sharing his mama and his papa.”

Though it’s an exciting time for the family, SJP says that the intense media speculation surrounding the pregnancy – and the surrogate mom in particular, who Sarah Jessica says has been harassed – is making it a stressful one, too.
