Hamster Hazard - According to the March of Dimes, Pregnant women should ask someone else to clean the hamster's cage, or better yet, put off getting a hamster until after the baby is born. These and other rodents can carry a virus that may pose a risk to an unborn baby if the mother becomes infected. Learn about other pet hazards during pregnancy.

Lyme Disease and Other Tick Borne Illnesses - After taping the show about Chronic Lyme Disease, I am compelled to share with you the many other diseases that ticks carry as well as more information about Lyme Disease and what the latest research shows. Many physicians do not consider Lyme to be much of a problem and hence are not addressing this issue with the consideration it desperately deserves. If you suspect Lyme Disease, be your own advocate and get the proper testing done. Waiting can mean the difference between getting well and becoming very ill. Read more about Lyme Disease:

Landscape Modification - The best way to address tick borne ailments is to prevent tick bites. My family has personally taken many of the steps listed here as suggested by the Lyme Disease Foundation, to reduce the number of ticks coming onto our property. While our home is in a heavily wooded tick infested area of Connecticut, we have greatly reduced the number of ticks in our yard. Our first year here, we removed quite a few ticks from our children and pets. This year, so far, so good. Not one tick! It works!

Father's Day - Hogan Hilling of Proud Shares a personal and inspiring story about fatherhood. A Must Read for Spouses, Significant Others and Dads! Hogan even suggests ways to celebrate Father's Day even if the baby hasn't arrived yet.

Dressing Baby (for the Season) - Many people believe that you should dress your newborn in lots of layers because babies are colder than adults are. Although it may be true that a newborn or preemie's body may not be mature enough to fully regulate body temperature, most babies need to be protected from the elements, but not covered up.

Sunburn & Windburn - The sun and wind can wreak havoc on a person's skin, especially the tender skin of a young child. This is a situation where "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." Preventing sun and wind damage is key to preventing different forms of skin cancer later in life, and the pain of these types of skin burns. The following suggestions will help make this season healthier and more bearable.
