Beautiful mother's story

A deaf mother's story Motherhood is a major learning curve. One minute you're pregnant and the next you're a feeding, swaddling, diapering and soothing expert, discovering an infinite love you have for this new human being. In celebration of Mother's Day we would like to share Erin's story, which gives us a glimpse of what is it like to be a deaf mother raising a baby. "Hello, I’m Erin! I was born profoundly deaf and raised by hearing parents. I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology at Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) in Upstate New York. In case...

“Jeremy Goes to the Fair” and Charlie Banana®

"Jeremy Goes to the Fair" and Charlie Banana® This post is a bit unusual, but something I wanted to share with you. Many years ago I worked as the marketing manager for a company called Apptastic Software, and it was the start of my career in producing high quality products for children. Back in 1998, Apptastic released a children's game that went on to win widespread critical acclaim. We were really proud of it for many reasons!

"What is it like to cloth diaper with multiple children in diapers?  Quadruplets anyone?“

"What is it like to cloth diaper with multiple children in diapers? Quadruplets anyone?" There is great deal of fascination about the concept of more than one baby being born at the same time. Statistically 90% of all multiple births are made up of twins and the remaining 10% being shared between triplets, quadruplets and more.
