Diastasis Recti.

Mommies, if you have Diastasis Recti, you can go check out Orchard Clinic (Link here https://linktr.ee/orchardclinic) They may be able to help you. If you are not sure what Diastasis Recti is, Diastasis rectus abdominis is a separation of the left and right sides of the outermost abdominal (stomach) muscle. It is caused by forces that stretch the connective tissue called the linea alba. This condition most often occurs in pregnancy, but also may occur in infants, older women, and men. To find out if u have it, Lie flat on your back with your knees bent, place your fingers on your belly button, pointing towards your pelvis, and press down. Lift your head up about an inch while keeping your shoulders on the ground. If you have diastasis recti, you will feel a gap between the muscles that is an inch wide (~ 2 fingers) or greater.

When your teenager has a CRUSH, how do you react?

Teenage sexuality is real, but sadly remains taboo. We might not want teenage romance to exist but it does. We may think that school-time romances are not important, but for the young people involved, they are. Everything matters academics, relationships, crushes, thoughts, feelings... everything. For the teen or preteens, their feelings are very real and important. If they have a crush on someone, it is true love to them. If someone else has a crush on them, they are genuinely confused. Since it is the first time that they are experiencing this kind of attraction or intensity of emotion, listen to what they have to say and help them articulate what they feel. You cannot dismiss it as unimportant or wrong. If you tell them that they are too young to feel this way, or that dating is out of the question, you will just alienate them.  Instead, If you feel comfortable, and your teen is receptive, you may want to add snippets about your own crushes; not only does this make them feel less alone, but knowing that you have experienced something similar may make your teen more inclined to open up to you, and explain how they feel. At the same time, speak to them about the sexual/ physical attraction and remind them of boundaries and respect of the opposite gender. It is also neccesary to keep our child busy with their hobby/ hobbies. Encourage them to take up new skills that they want or like. This way, it may help keep them busy and help your child balance his responsibilities with his social life.

Symptoms of Diabetes in Children.

Diabetes in children can be fatal if you’re not aware of the symptoms and appropriate treatment is not provided. It’s important to know the symptoms of diabetes in children so you can act quickly. 1. Feequent Urination: It can be hard to tell if your toddler is urinating more than often. But if you notice your youngster wetting their shorts (or bed) more often or complaining about needing to use the bathroom more frequently, it could be a cause for concern. 2. Excersive Thirst: The urge to drink fluids all the time also increases the need to urinate,It’s not just getting thirstier at various intervals the thirst can be continuous. If your child is always whining for another glass of juice or water, it may be more than their love of those drinks it could be they’re trying to quench their insatiable thirst triggered by diabetes. 3. Weight Loss: When your child’s body can’t regulate blood sugar levels, it will start using other sources of energy besides sugars. This means it will start burning off fats and sugars. This can result in noticeable weight loss. You should watch for symptoms such as nausea, fatigue, and abdominal pain. Do take your child to emergency room if this happens. 4. Impaired Vision. 5. Moodiness: Your child may not be acting like their usual sunny self, which could be a sign that something is happening with their blood sugars.  6. Extreme Hunger: Among the most common signs and symptoms of type 1 and 2 diabetes is extreme hunger. A child who is showing signs of diabetes will experience intense feelings of hunger, because their body isn’t producing enough of the hormone that regulates the amount of glucose in the blood. As a result, it’s not moving sugar into cells or organs, which causes a lack of energy in the organs. 7. Slow Healing Sores: A child that is suffering from diabetes will begin to show slow-healing sores.  8. Fruity smelling breath: One of the strangest symptoms of all is that diabetes can cause a person’s breath to smell fruity of all things. I suppose there are worse things than this!  Watch out for these signs! #sharing
