  • Talking more to babies may help prevent developmental disorders
    Less vocal communication between mothers and their babies was associated with a greater likelihood of developmental problems like attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, Scottish researchers said. The study published in the journal Research in Developmental Disabilities suggests that active parenting may help protect a child from developing emotional problems and behavioral disorders.

  • Mothers' hormones may affect bacterial diversity in breast milk
    Mothers who were overweight or gained more than the recommended weight during their pregnancy had less bacterial species found in their breast milk, Spanish researchers reported in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. They found that the breast milk of mothers who underwent planned cesarean section delivery had fewer species of bacteria compared with that of the vaginal birth group or mothers who had unplanned C-sections.

  • Peek-a-Boo system lets NICU parents talk to infants from home
    Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas has set up cameras and microphones in 15 NICU incubators, allowing parents not only to see their infants but also to talk to them. The Peek-a-Boo system was added to reduce the number of people going in and out of the unit, but one mother said she believes her infant son actually hears better through the sound system than when she talks to him while standing next to his incubator.
