October- Dental Health

     Keep that pretty smile forever. Dental health should never be neglected. The American Dental Association (ADA) suggests brushing teeth for two minutes two times a day, flossing once each day, using a fluoride toothpaste and scheduling regular visits to the dentist. If dental health is neglected, it could lead to dental disease.
     Toothbrushes are the most important piece to proper dental hygiene. Find a toothbrush that fits comfortably and can reach all areas of the mouth. The brush should be replaced after 3 or 4 months, or when the bristles fray. The type of toothbrush doesn’t make a difference, just as long as you brush each day.
     Even though brushing is crucial, tooth brushes can’t always reach in between the teeth. Flossing is necessary to remove plaque that may have formed on the teeth. If plaque is not removed, it can create tartar which can only be removed by routine visits to the dentist.
     Among brushing, flossing, and dental visits, a well balanced diet is one of the best ways to prevent dental disease. The nutrients consumed from eating fruits and vegetables can prevent gum disease and cavities. Everyone know that dairy is a good source of calcium for teeth and bones, however it is important choose dairy that is low-fat or non-fat.  Chewing sugar-less gum is another way to keep teeth strong and healthy. The ADA states that chewing sugar-less gum after meals prevents tooth decay and disease.

Breastfeeding is one of the greatest benefits you can do as a mother for your baby.  There are situations where the mother cannot breastfeed and formula is the only option, in that case this website gives good advice on what formula is going to be the best for the baby.  http://www.babycenter.com/0_how-to-buy-baby-formula_1334669.bc

There are many benefits of breastfeeding for both the mother and the baby.  Many studies have been done showing that breast milk will help increase the baby’s IQ by three to five points in their infant stages of life.  The breast milk nutrients change as the baby grows and is essential for proper development.  Breast milk also helps build the baby’s immune system which helps to prevent ear infections earlier on in their lives and is easily digestible for the baby.

One of the biggest pros for the mom is the fact that breast milk is free and portable!  Although it is a huge commitment for the mother to breast feed, it can result in saving a good chunk of money to use for other baby supplies.  Another benefit is the fact that the mother will burn more calories while breastfeeding which results as weight loss and also aids in helping reduce the uterus size.  Losing the extra baby weight can be difficult to do but breastfeeding can improve your ability to lose the weight.  This also creates an opportunity for the mother and the baby to bond with one another.
