Notes from Motherhood: Cry Baby Cry!

One of the best things about my job is that I get to read lots of wonderful blogs written by mums and dads. They are all different, each one an insight into the personal world of that individual and their family. But they do have one thing in common, all of them are written from the heart and touch upon issues that all mums and dads want to hear about because they either have direct or indirect experience of them.

Last Autumn when I first started my role as Social Networking Coordinator for BornFree I connected with a lovely woman on Twitter called Claire Lancaster. I sensed at the time that Claire was going through a very difficult time with her colicky baby and I could relate very well to this, having gone through a tough time with my second child Molly for the same reason.

Claire has, amongst many of her talents, a gift for writing that allows her readers to connect and relate immediately to her subject matter. When you read her words you immediately feel comfortable, as if you are chatting with an old friend.

Last week Claire wrote a post on her blog which I wanted to share with the BornFree audience because it has so much in it that is relevant to all parents, be they first, second, third or eighth time around.  Feeding, sleep issues, caring for a toddler and a newborn, coping with colic and living with a baby who cries all the time are all discussed with warmth, honesty and positivity.

Claire has very kindly agreed to write some posts for the BabyBornFree Blog in the near future and I can’t wait to post them up and share them with you.

In the meantime please follow this link and read Claire’s blog:

Big BPA News!

Here’s some very exciting news from BornFree’s North American blogger, Bunmi:

After years of no official stance against BPA, the Food and Drug administration (USA) has just expressed concern over the use of the chemical in food containers. This is huge news.

“The FDA says the agency and the U.S. National Toxicology Program at the National Institute of Health have SOME concern about the potential adverse effects of BPA on the brain, behavior, and prostate gland in fetuses, infants and young children.”

Numerous studies in the last few years have resulted in regional bans of BPA. Attorney Generals from Connecticut, New Jersey and Delaware wrote a letter to 11 baby bottle and formula container companies to discontinue use of BPAs in late 2008. Canada banned the use of BPAs in baby bottles in 2009. In April 2009, Walmart and Toys ‘R Us pulled baby bottles containing BPAs from their shelves.

We’re very pleased that the American federal government seems to be taking steps to completely ban BPAs and keep babies safe! Join us in our mission to spread the news. This week we’re going to raise awareness by hosting a BPA-Free and Proud Week!

Are you a BPA-Free and Proud parent? Here are a few ways you can spread the news.

Bizziebaby features BornFree Bottles!

Have a look at the coverage that has appeared Bizziebaby, a website designed for all you mums and dads out there looking for the best, in-depth product reviews online.

The website features product reviews of the BornFree Plastic Bottles, written by parents who are members of the site. Both the testers gave the product a score of 4.5 out of 5 and comments include;

“There  was no leakage at the top of the bottle because everything fits together well…I would not hesitate in buying these bottles again.”

The second of the testers also mentions how good the BornFree website is:

“BornFree’s website impressed me as it is very easy to navigate around, and provides all the information you could possibly want.”

Thanks to Bizziebaby and the mums for taking the time to review our BPA-Free Baby Bottles.
