Trend Alert: Umbilical Jewelry is the Latest Trend Among New Mothers

Are you wondering what to do with your newborn’s umbilical cord? Well instead of putting it in a safe place or in your newborn’s keepsake box why not make it into a piece of jewelry that you can wear every day? That’s right, you heard right. The latest trend among new mamas is sending your child’s umbilical cord away and having it made into a piece of jewelry.

It may sound crazy and hard to believe that there’s a market for such of thing but we found out there is multiple jewelers that will do such a thing. Why not right? Women today are saving their placenta from birth and making it into capsules for postpartum recovery.

Ruth Avra, 39, a trained metalsmith and jeweler is one of the many skilled jewelers out there making umbilical jewelry. After the birth of her son in 2012, Avra thought of the idea and started designing the latest trendy keepsake jewelry.

Ava’s friend gave the jeweler the stump of her baby’s umbilical cord in 2011. At the time, Avra didn’t know what to do with it so she held onto it. “She asked me to make something out of it, but I had no idea what to do,” Avra recalled. But it wasn’t until her son was born a year later that she had that ‘Aha’ moment.

Avra was mesmerized at the vast difference between her son’s umbilical cord and her friend’s. “These are really organic pieces—no two are anywhere alike,” she says. Avra got to work making a necklace for herself and her friend. She loved the challenge of the unique differences between the two that forced her creativity flow to go beyond her bounds. Before she knew it, “suddenly I was making them for all my friends,” she says.

Avra now sells them online and has even expanded her line and now does jewelry with your child’s baby teeth, baby’s first hair clippings, hospital bracelets, and cremated ashes.

Hilary Duff Welcomes Daughter

Hilary Duff Welcomes Daughter with Boyfriend Matthew Koma

Hilary Duff’s little princess has arrived! The Lizzie McGuire alum announced on Instagram Monday that she and boyfriend Matthew Koma welcomed their daughter on October 25.

Duff, 31, posted a precious picture of herself holding her daughter with Koma by his two girls side. “Banks Violet Bair this little bit has fully stolen our hearts! She joined our world at home on Thursday afternoon and is absolute magic,” she wrote.

Proud new papa Koma, 31, shared the same photo on his Instagram account writing, “ We welcome a beautiful daughter, little sister, and best friend for life. Could not possibly be more grateful for our growing family and for the who makes it all possible. Cloud ten.”

The new parents revealed their baby news back in June on social media announcing they were expecting a bundle of joy of their own. Duff posted a picture of herself giving her beau a kiss on the cheek while showing off her growing belly. She wrote alongside the picture, “Guess what guys! @matthewkoma and I made a little princess of our own and we couldn’t be more excited!!!!!!”

The Younger star is also a mom to 6-year-old son Luca who she shares with ex-husband Mike Comrie. This is the first child for Duff’s musician babe.

Koma was a doting boyfriend for his pregnant girlfriend during her pregnancy. Duff gushed back in August of her beau who was going to great lengths to pacify her pregnancy cravings.

Hilary Duff documented on an Instagram story that Koma had driven around town looking for Duff’s request of Good & Plenty’s. She later showed all the sweet treats Koma had scored along the way along with the much sought out candy request.

Duff handled pregnancy like a champ embracing her body changing all through the different stages that pregnancy brings. In July the Disney star alum wrote about the wonder’s of the female body and how amazing women truly are.

“The boobs are big the belly is big the body is big. Man.. pregnancy is hard. Giving love to all mamas who make it look effortless… this journey is hard as hell and also incredibly special. Lovely to have a little life inside and to daydream of all the new adventures to come buuuut almost impossible to get my own shoes on,” she captioned a mirror selfie. “Sick of getting up 9 times a night to pee and looking at this weird body in the mirror that is not my own at the moment. Women are so bada**, this was just a note to remind myself and remind others how’s strong and beautiful you are! WE GOT THIS!

Halloween Candy – How Much is Too Much?

Should You Let Your Child Regulate Their Halloween Candy?

Halloween is just around the corner. A lot of last minute details for parents to finish up before the big night. Making sure your kid’s costume is in tack, the pumpkins are carved and you’re stocked up for your neighborhood trick-or-treaters. But the underlying stress that occurs with most parents during this spooky time is the sugary candy your kids come home with ready to devour.

How much is too much Halloween candy for your kiddo? And should you allow your child to decide how much he or she should eat?

Emily Fonnesbeck a registered dietitian says yes, “The goal is to trust them to trust themselves. It’s very normal for them to eat more than necessary on Halloween night and maybe even the day after.”

As shocking as that sounds Fonnesbeck recommends that you allow your unicorn or Spiderman to indulge in the evening’s bucket of candy they bring home and into the day after. A mother herself she goes a step further and encourages parents to incorporate their children’s Halloween candy in their meals and snack times days following Halloween.

“Parents can use a flexible structure where they have set meal and snack times, and candy can be a part of those if the kids request it,” she says.

It’s almost time to make one of the biggest decisions of the year…what candy to hand out for Halloween! 🍭. Ive managed not to buy any yet, you know, that first batch that gets eaten BEFORE Halloween! 🍬. Everyone has their favorites – (KitKats, Skittles, Sweetarts, Twizzlers for me!) And their most hated – (mine- BitoHoney, those generic hard candies, or that one homemade popcorn ball 🤢) ~Fun fact: the number of trick or treaters fluctuates year to year here. One year we had tons, the next only 3. I underbought candy the year after only having a handful of kids – we were desperate so we handed out Top Ramen noodle packs and the kids thought it was hilarious and awesome. 🍜. ~The ritual of sorting through the candy after trick or treating was almost as fun as dressing up and going ~ so I hope you take your candy choices seriously~ 😜🍫🎃. . . . #candy #halloween #halloweencandy #halloween2018 #halloweentime #halloweentreats #trickortreat #trickortreating #candies #october31 #fun #retro #nostalgia #nostalgic #halloweenvibes #halloweenfun #halloweenlover #besthalloweencandy #candyland #candychoices

This kind of approach is noted as the Division of Responsibility in Feeding developed by nutritionist and author Ellyn Satter. The belief is that its part of a parent’s responsibility to put trust in their child and allow him or her to make his or her own food choices and how much.

Fonnesbeck states that micromanaging your kiddos bucket full of candy could backfire on you. She encourages the parents to have a ‘you decide’ yourself approach with food altogether. According to Fonnesbeck, your child needs to learn on his own good versus bad food choices even if an upset stomach is a consequence.

She also encourages to take a neutral approach when talking about food especially candy as certain vocabulary can give if too much power.

“If we make candy a big deal, it will be a big deal,” she says. “If we talk about it like any other food, it’s more likely that kids will be able to self-regulate their food choices to include a wide variety of foods instead of feeling preoccupied, worried or shameful for food choices.”
