Not going back to work after baby is born

Ok, so everyone in the office (boss included) is convinced that you'll be back after baby pops out. You told them so!
But deep inside you are still not sure that will be the case.
So...are you truly having trouble deciding or are you just hoping to abuse the system and take full advantage of your maternity leave/short term disability benefits?

The reality is that going back to work after baby arrives can be a difficult decision for many working pregnant women. Many factors play a role in the decision making process, and in most cases, finances can be the main factor. Many times women will decide not to go back, even after telling their boss to expect them back. In cases like these, how, when, and do you inform your boss about your change of heart? had an article on this subject not too long ago. Their article is below and you can also go to the AlphaMom site to read actual comments and reactions to the topic:

When You're Not Going Back

"Okay. So I've been reading up on this topic for a couple weeks now. It's an annoying topic to read up on, by the way, because there are no super-handy definitive how-to guides or even just a general consensus. There's a lot of bad advice and bad behavior and sweeping generalized vitriol being slung at innocent pregnant bystanders BECAUSE of that bad behavior. Mostly, though, it's a lot of families grappling with a complicated financial AND ethical AND personal issue: When do I tell my boss I'm not coming back to work? When do I make the decision not to go back to work? HOW do I make the decision not to go back to work?
PERFECT WORLD OPTION: You tell them as soon as you know you plan to stay home, with as much advance notice as possible. Because of course you just *know* that staying home is the right decision, probably right as your pregnancy tips into third trimester, leaving your employer with the perfect three-month window to hire and train your replacement.
Pros: Definitely the option that leaves your professional reputation most intact, since you will not be one of "those" pregnant women who take advantage of the company's leave benefits. And also, OH YEAH, you're not actually taking advantage of the company's leave benefits.
Cons: You may lose out on ANY paid maternity leave benefits, as your baby's birth would likely officially be your last day of employment, unless you arrange some part-time/freelance work afterward to tie up loose ends. You also run the risk of losing your health insurance, if the company decides to let you go ahead of time. (They can't fire you for being pregnant, but they CAN lay you off once you've announced your intention to leave.) That can leave you shelling out a fortune for COBRA or having to change plans and providers in the middle of a very medical-claim intensive time. This could cause some premature financial hardship, or the fear that you're burning your bridges BEFORE you cross them, especially if your situation changes after the baby is born (i.e. your partner loses their job and/or health insurance or some other financial crisis). And also, OH YEAH, not every woman can honestly make the decision "for sure" before the baby arrives.
Is It For You? If you have already made up your mind 100% to stay home, then legally and ethically, this is your option. Anything else veers into a muddy gray area of insurance scamming -- not to mention mega-unprofessional behavior. If you KNOW, your job should should know too. (And if you're hoping to keep the door open for freelance work or a return to the workforce some day, this is the best way to keep your company's trust.)
At my office, my boss asked for a meeting about two months before I was due to "discuss my plans." While I was planning to return to work, this would have been the perfect time to volunteer any plans to stay home (or desire to drop to part-time). Then I could have laid out some major projects and goals from my to-do list that I would like to finish, and offered to interview and train a replacement, positioning myself as a valuable team member for the next few months, greatly reducing the chances that they would have preemptively laid me off right then and there.
NOT-SO-PERFECT-WORLD OPTION: Tell them while you're still on leave that you won't be coming back as planned.
Pros: Benefits! Paid time off! No disruption in your health care through the birth and multiple well-baby visits! A chance to actually live the life of a SAHM before committing to it full-time! Plus, if you really hadn't made up your mind, you're not REALLY leaving them in the lurch and defrauding the system, right? Right?
Cons: Professional ire, disbelief at your claim that you simply changed your mind. Adding to the crap about pregnant women gaming the system and raising benefit premiums and no respect for their bosses and coworkers grumble grumble. Possibility of having to pay benefits back or even legal action, if your company is litigious or extremely strict about their leave policies.
Is It For You? Have you made up your mind for sure? Then: No. Maternity leave is, really, more of a retention benefit. It's not something they owe you, like a bank of unused vacation days. It's designed for women who DO plan to return to the workplace (however crappy of a design it is in this country).
But if you haven't made up your mind, you're not a terrible person for keeping the option of returning around. It's a HUGE decision -- life-changing, with life-long repercussions for your career and earnings power and retirement -- and I'm not sure the third trimester, before the reality of motherhood really hits you, is a fair time to expect every woman to know for sure. Plenty of women change their minds during maternity leave.
However, this is still different than say...waiting until week 11-and-a-half to tell them you aren't coming back. You should always, ALWAYS try to give them as much notice as you possibly can. Otherwise you're veering into a moral, ethical and legal gray area. It's also short-sighted to assume that you will be a SAHM forever and ever AMEN, and will never regret robbing your bridges at gunpoint before setting them on fire.
Internet message boards are full of people figuring out how to squeeze every last paid option before quitting, while others argue that hey, that's really not cool. Any discussion of a maternity leave overhaul in this country -- having companies provide longer leave, more generous leave times in hopes of upping retention -- brings out the folk who have a bitter story to tell about how a woman totally screwed their office over with her sneaky leave-taking when she clearly never had any intention of returning. Hey, I've got one of those stories too: A friend-of-a-friend-of-a-friend of mine worked for a particularly troubled company that shuddered through round after round of layoffs. Late in her pregnancy, she was offered a severance package in order to save someone else's job, on the off chance she was planning to quit anyway. She turned it down, kept her job, went on leave...and then quit right before her scheduled return, as was her plan all along.
HOWEVER, of course, real life rarely sticks to schedule. If your baby was a preemie, or has health problems, or you were on bedrest and it all mucked with your leave time and nothing is what you expected it to be like six to 12 weeks later, then you may not have a choice. Similarly if your daycare falls through or your baby still won't take a bottle or your office announces it's moving four exits up your area's most congested highway.
If you do decide to stay home AFTER your baby is born: quit in person, with your HR person and your boss present. Offer to do WHATEVER YOU CAN to help with the transition -- working from home, coming in for interviews and meetings, organizing your files and to-do lists and job description. Anything to offset the perception of being all, "Thanks for the money, suckers!" before flouncing out the door.
I probably promised a good 25 different people on a good 25 different occasions that yes, I would be coming back to work after my leave. I don't think they believed me. So it was tempting to assume that quitting as soon as the short-term disability payments dried up was an okay option, because it's just "what everybody did." And despite all my promises, I WAS unsure about the decision. We were waitlisted at half a dozen daycares with no sure-fire spot in sight. I didn't know whether my salary would be worth the expense of childcare and commuting and even whether I was honestly all that interested in my job anymore, as freelance writing opportunities seemed like something possibly within my grasp. But I also didn't know if I'd like being home with a newborn day in and day out, whether I'd be breastfeeding or bottlefeeding or suffering from PPD or so madly in love with motherhood that I was willing to do whatever it took to soak up every second of it. I just wasn't ready to make the decision before the baby was born or even during my leave -- so I went back. Because I'd promised, and because I wasn't sure. A few months in and suddenly I was sure. Luckily, by that point, maternity leave benefits were a thing of the past, and I was able to quit like any other employee: two weeks' notice, letter of resignation, a contract arrangement to continue a slew of my duties from home until a replacement could be found and/or I was no longer interested in the work.
It remains the best -- and BY FAR, the toughest -- decision I've ever made.
Those of you who genuinely grappled with the decision of whether or not to return: What were the details behind YOUR decision, when and how did you tell your job, and how did it go? Any regrets? "

Reduce your Risk of Breast Cancer by Breastfeeding your babies

As if we needed yet another good reason to nurse our babies, a new study shows that breastfeeding reduces the risk of breast cancer by 59% in women with a family history of the disease.

Alison Stuebe, assistant professor of obstetrics and gynecology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Medicine and lead author of the study, says "This is good news for women with a family history of breast cancer." The study was published in the Aug. 10 issue of Archives of Internal Medicine.

why we love Planet Wise Wet Diaper Bags

We love to sell these ingenious wet diaper bags, not only because they come in super cute designer fabrics but also because Planet Wise stands 100% behind their products.

How to Conceive a Baby Girl Naturally: 3 Tips that Really Work!

OK! for all those hoping to have a baby girl, there are actually 3 things you can do to make sure your baby will be a girl

Wow...that's a statement!!

I always thought that the gender of a baby was decided by fate...

But yes, according to an article that appeared on and also on "there are a few steps you can use to make sure the child you conceive will be a girl." "Even if your family is notorious for giving birth to boys"

George Christodoulou, author of the article, states that [people] can use science to naturally [influence] the gender of the baby. Here it goes:
1. Different Types of Sperm
This is where the science kicks in. The fact is there are two types of sperm; X sperm (girl) and Y sperm (boy). The Y sperm is weak and small, but fast. X sperm is slow, bigger, and lives longer. If you want to conceive a girl, have intercourse a day or two before you ovulate to give the X sperm time to travel. Nature has cleverly created this system to make sure there are equal numbers of men and woman being born at all times.
2. Add Acidity to Your Diet
Keeping with the above fact, by adding acidity to your diet you will be killing more of the male sperm because it is weaker and unable to take the harsher acidic environment. Eating more lemon, grapefruit, oranges, and other citrus foods will help. Keep in mind that doing this to the extreme can be dangerous.
3. Intercourse Positioning
Again, working off of the different sperm, your position during sex can effect the gender of the baby. Since the girl sperm is stronger and able to last longer, ejaculation in a very shallow position of the vagina will cause most of the boy sperm to die off before it reaches the egg.
According to Christodoulou, the 3 tips above will surely increase your chances of having a girl.
I'd be curious to know if these tricks have actually worked for people.
The tips seem easy enough and harmless really, as long as you don't overdo the acidic diet.

Good luck to all of you out there hoping for a baby girl!

Tips for Successful Baby Wearing

For many new moms and dads baby-wearing turns out to be a disappointing experience. After trying a few times they feel uncomfortable, baby feels uncomfortable, and the idea of baby wearing starts to be less appealing. New parents may end up convincing themselves that baby wearing is not for them and that they are just not the baby wearing type.

Before you give up on the idea and deprive yourself and baby from the great benefits of baby wearing, here are some tips to make the most of your experience:

1. Don't give up too easily
If your carrier feels uncomfortable it could well be that you are using it incorrectly. Make sure to read the instructions carefully before you start using your gear and try practicing with some kind of stuffed doll before you actually put baby in the carrier. This exercise will make you feel more confident when wearing your baby.

Also, depending on your baby's age, you should try different positions until baby feels comfortable. Some experts say that an upright tummy-to-tummy with their head on your chest position is the preferred position for most babies. There are specific positions for newborns and you should carry your newborn correctly. Remember that newborns need neck support.

When wearing your carrier, remember that babies like gentle motion, so walking or swaying may make the experience more enjoyable. It does take some time for you and for baby to get used to a carrier, but remember that practice makes perfect!

2. Right Size is Crucial for Success
Buying the right size carrier is a crucial factor. If a carrier is pulling on your neck, back, or shoulders, you are most likely using it incorrectly or you are using the wrong size. Remember that you should be using your core muscle to hold the weight. Following the correct wearing instructions and wearing the right size carrier will ensure that the baby's weight is distributed across your back. If your carrier is too big, baby is not secure in it and it isn't safe to wear a carrier too loosely.

3. Pick the right type of carrier for you
There are many types of carriers available. The most common and most widely available is the baby Bjorn front carrier type. This type of carrier can be a great choice but it does have its limitations. The baby Bjorn type is for infants up to 15 pounds or so. This may give the impression to some parents that a carrier is only for small babies, when in fact there are many other carrier types that can be used for newborns to toddlers.

You should also buy a carrier depending on what you plan to use it for. If you are looking for a baby carrier to do activities like walking or hiking, then a carrier like the Ergo or the Kokopax are great choices. But if you plan to snuggle or soothe your baby, then a pouch style sling like Hotslings is better. Also wrap carriers like the Moby Wrap or the Sleepy Wrap are very versatile and allow for a variety of carrying positions.

4. Try it out when baby is at his or her best
If baby is cranky or tired your chances for success are diminished. If you are trying out a new carrier, do it just after your baby has been fed and is in a good mood; this will make the experience smoother for both of you.

5. Wear baby high
This is a great tip found on one of the mothering magazine issues: Wear your baby high with both the sling and vertical front packs like the Baby Bjorn. This prevents back discomfort and allows you to carry a much heavier burden.

6. Babies go through Developmental Phases
Baby may like to be in a sling or carrier at one point and then a few days or weeks later baby starts disliking it. Don't be discouraged! give baby a break and then try the carrier again after baby has gone through his or her developmental "jump"

if you are thinking about having a home birth - get informed!

Having a home birth or a water birth at home or at a birthing center can be one of the most wonderful and touching experiences for expecting parents.
We had two incredibly perfect water births in a Miami maternity center and would recommend the experience to anyone open to the idea. But we also know that many people are very reluctant to consider this option and controversy is growing in the US about the health risks associated with the growing trend of women opting for home births to deliver their babies. Here's a video from the Today show. Watch it and make educated choices for yourself!

Delicious Organic Snacks for picky little eaters

I don't know any one year olds or two year olds who are not picky eaters. Maybe they exist in a far far away land. Who knows?

Here are two delicious and healthy treats that are never rejected by our kids: Organic Grapes and Organic Yogurt.

Grapes are an excellent snack and kids love their shape and love to pick them with their fingers to put in their mouths. Even though expensive, you should always try to buy organic grapes. If you find organic grapes on sale. Buy them!! Here's why: Grapes have been found to contain high amounts of pesticides. They are on the Dirty Dozen Foods list
"Imported grapes run a much greater risk of contamination than those grown domestically. Vineyards can be sprayed with different pesticides during different growth periods of the grape, and no amount of washing or peeling will eliminate contamination because of the grape's thin skin.
Can't find organic? Safer alternatives include blueberries, kiwi and raspberries."

Another all time favorite treat that everyone around here just loves is the Stony Field Whole Milk Yogurt. Perfect for breakfast, perfect for snacks, perfect for dessert! The cream on top is just too deliciously decadent! Definitely and adult and kid favorite. And on top of that Stonyfield is a very cool company. They have coupons that you can use to save money on their products

Lukeeno Organic Baby Blanket - Mom Blogger Review

The beautiful girls from the Mkokopelli Blog have been quite busy this week looking for the softest organic blanket. We sent them one of our signature Lukeeno Organic Baby Blankets with hoodie and they had fun blogging about it:
"It is even large enough to take on picnics for your child's own personal blanket to sit on. But, mostly, I'd highly recommend this blanket for infants- especially in the Fall and Winter! It will really keep your infant warm and cozy while swaddled, plus the hoodie is the best. This would make the perfect baby shower or welcoming home gift. You can always take the blanket to be personalized and a name would fit perfectly on the hoodie." To read the entire review visit the Mkokopelli Blog.

Thanks Ella and Michelle for the nice review!!
