Children’s Toy Sets

What is cuter than a little girl's toy tea set? Toy tea sets are beautiful and they become collector's items that are passed down as heirlooms (that is if someone does not manage to lose a cup or a pot along the way.) The teapots are really small and typically hold two to five ounces of liquid and the tea cups often just hold an ounce or two of liquid. Most of these little China tea pot sets also come with cute little creamers and sugar containers and sometimes little spoons of either china or silver to match.

One of the most popular motifs for toy teapots is bunnies. There are toy china tea sets made with bunny, mice and duck images by story teller and illustrator Beatrix Potter n them but there are many different realistic portrayals of bunnies on childs tea pots. However when it comes to gorgeous little teapots and cups Beatrix Potter is not the only game in town. There are many more anonymous illustrators and designers out there that have put their designs on teapots and the bunnies are equally as cute an equally as realistic.

You can get teapot collections made by Disney, but like the Beatrix Potter collections they have become a bit too common and corny. The company called Cardew makes a unique European looking Snow White teapot that features her and the seven dwarfs and that does not look much like the Disney version of the popular storybook character. If you think Disney is too corporate it is a good idea to look around for something less commercial. It does exist.

Reutter Porcelain is a great company that makes all kinds of different storybook character based tea sets. One of their nicest lines is their Alice in Wonderland line which features pictures of Alice playing croquet with the Pink Flamingo and The Red Queen. The illustrations are based on the original ones by Lewis Carroll.

There are also some companies that simply make tinier versions of their adult collectible teapots. These have beautiful floral patterns and nice gold trim. Madison is quite a famous old company that makes beautiful tea sets that are packed in a beautiful designer paper and wood box that matches the pattern on the tea set.

The nice thing about these teapots is that they already come wrapped. Many sets come in nice boxes or even wood cases. Quite a few are packed for gift giving in their own closing and locking picnic baskets.

Pain Relief After Labor

After a woman has a baby her body can be very sore. Post-partum pain is usually caused by sore muscles. The body can go into shock from all of the muscle strain. Everything can hurt, including your arms and legs. Often the hips can really hurt as well. This is s the result of having your feet and legs positioned in stirrups or in an odd position. Your back might also be sore as sometimes there can be a lot of maneuvering of the spine in order to allow the child to emerge from the womb.

People who have had an epidural also might have a sore back from the needle or because they did not feel the back strain happening because the pain killer was masking the feeling.

The thing is that most moms do not want to take drugs after labor because it can get into breast milk and cause you to sleep through paying attention to your baby's cries. That is why many people use other measures including taking warm baths and showers, using rice socks and flax bags for heat, icing the area and massaging the area. Your doctor can also tell you what medications, whether they be over the counter or otherwise are safe for you to take.

Many women experience a lot of post-labor pain in their lower regions. The pain can radiate from the vagina to the rectum. This is because this area expands to allow you to let the baby out of your body. You can also be in pain if forceps or an extruder of some kind was used to help you give birth.

In this case a sitz bath can help soothe damaged tissues. You can get over-the-counter and sitz bathas that are good for this purpose. There are also portable pads known as TUCKS pads that can help soothe the heat or pain emanating from your tissues.

Some women get headaches after giving birth. This is due to hormonal changes and stress. Relaxation can really help take care of this type of headache. Women who have epidural or spinal injections when they give birth are quite prone to this type of headache and may need to rest for a few days after labor.

Breast pain is also common after labor but there is not that can be done about it. You can try applying warm packs to your breasts if they are giving you pain after giving birth.
