Why Do Babies Cry?

Why do babies cry? For the same reason anyone cries, which is for about a million different possible reasons. But with a newborn, you’re handicapped as a mom: you aren’t yet communicating in spoken language, so for you it becomes a guessing game, hourly and daily and even minute by minute. Since babies often cry non-stop for up to two hours at a shot, it can often feel overwhelming, like you’re losing the guessing game. But there are ways to cut down the possibilities and help get to the ideal position of returning your child to a happy gurgling bundle of joy, all momentary needs addressed.
Just try to put yourself in the situation of your baby. First and foremost a baby will communicate by fussing and crying is she is hungry. Remember that the feeding for a newborn is constant, every few hours. If you are convinced your baby is crying for reasons of hunger, address the situation quickly. If the baby becomes TOO hungry then chances are that she will take the bottle too eagerly and gobble up a lot of air along with everything else. This will lead to spit-ups and probably more fussing and crying. If the baby is attacking the bottle with too much gusto, back away and try to feed her little by little.
If the baby doesn’t seem to be hungry, go directly to plan B: check your baby’s diaper right away. There’s nothing like a full diaper to get those tears flowing. Remember here that an incomplete or absent burping after the bottle can produce an upset tummy, which will lead to crying and eventual full diaper, so don’t forget: ABB! (Always Be Burping).
If the above reasons don’t seem to be the case, don’t forget that the average newborn sleeps just like an old cat – sometimes up to 18 hours a day. The child may be crying for the simple reason that her sleep was disturbed in some way. This is a time to remember that a quiet environment must be created and maintained for the child at all times. So turn down the music, turn up the listener-speaker and pay attention!
Finally, sometimes a baby, just like an adult, will become frustrated with her sleep position, or any waking position she happens to be in. In that case you just need to move her around, rock or carry her here and there, and you’ll see this can work wonders to quiet and soothe your crying child.

Hoodia for Post-Partum Weight

If you have gained weight after pregnancy you might want to consider taking hoodia. It has worked with me. The key is to take it in a safe way. Then you will be guaranteed to lose the weight in a healthy way.

Like any type of weight loss aid or supplement you are the safest if you use it in moderation. It is hard to harm yourself taking hooida but it can lead to anorexia if you take it daily for a large number of months. This is because it cuts hunger so effectively that you do not notice that you are losing a lot of weight. Not feeling the hunger helps disassociate you from your body.

You can lose as much as pound a day on hoodia but you do not want to go for that. Your body will soon hit a level called a plateau. The plateau is the point at which you cannot possibly lose any more. It will go into 'famine' mode and you will actually conserve pounds. It is a natural protective thing that your body does. It is not a good idea to lose too much weight like that as it can cause disorders.

The reason that I recommend it for moms who are a bit down and fat after giving birth is that it does cause you to feel slightly elated. Hoodia is a bit of a natural antidepressant but not so much so that you feel like you are on crack.

Hoodia can be taken every day and you can take big amounts if you like because it is not classifieds as drug. It is named a food. People in Africa eat it every day to stave off hunger and they have done this for centuries. In it's natural state it tastes like a very bitter melon. That is why us Westerners take it in pill form.

Still you need to be careful with this stuff. Research done in Africa shows that if you eat nothing but hoodia for three months you will eventually starve to death. You just won't feel the malnutrition set in.

The key to staying healthy while on hoodia and in fact on any type of diet that involves taking a supplement is to ingest a variety of different foods. Hoodia is a food but it is not considered to be a 'whole' food like wheat grass. It's value instead is to do with losing the pounds.

The biggest danger of taking Hoodia is losing too much weight too rapidly. You can lose ten pounds a week if you are the type of person who takes Hoodia and completely loses all appetite. However this type of rapid weight loss is very hard on the brain, muscles, nerves and heart and you could die if you were not careful with it With some individuals it takes as long as two weeks to work and with others the appetite suppressing effect seems to happen immediately. I did not take the recommended dosage at first and only took one pill a day. That resulted in about a one two pound weight loss for me a day.
