As National Child Life Month  draws to a close, we continue our spotlight on Jeanine Clapsaddle. Jeanine is a Child Life  specialist from Children’s who is in India for two months to help set up Child Life services at Manipal Hospital. Jeanine’s trip is in partnership with the Priyanka Foundation, which was established to fulfill the dying wish of a former Children’s patient  who wanted other kids around the world to get the same care she received. The Child Life office here at Manipal is located just off the waiting room to the vaccination clinic. I was in the office with my student, Sunitha, when we heard, as we frequently do, the traumatic screams of a child being carried to the vaccination room. Somehow this girl of about 6 was able to escape her father’s arms and run back out into the waiting room. Although the girl did not want to blow the bubbles, she was able to watch Sunitha blow them and settle herself some. When the father was able to pick his daughter up, he approached our ...

And this is a great challenge to the "already trained". A Pediatrician accepted the changes in favor of better methods of treatment. Clinical Presentation of Infections. Young children have predominantly respiratory or gastrointestinal symptoms and typical fever pattern is seen only in older children. Clinical diagnosis in early stage is difficult and laboratory diagnosis is not dependable. Late diagnosis is fraught with danger and hence it has been a great challenge to pediatricians. Such conditions were probably never thought of and hence often missed; however they need to be considered in the present scenario of clinical practice. Advances in supportive therapy have a prerequisite of early diagnosis for better outcome. Pediatricians have a challenge to face as early diagnosis is just not enough and close monitoring is necessary, as prognosis remains ...

*  .. Thoughts on the Dying of My Father .. Share this: .. Related
Before we move on from Father’s Day, a personal reflection from Jeff Dean. My father is dying. My father has been dying for some time now. He was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease on Good Friday of my senior year in high school. Parkinson’s gradually shuts down the brain’s ability to coordinate movements by the muscles. My father noticed the loss of his fingers first. My father’s throat will close. While you are taking your next bite, your brain is commanding your throat to snake your first bite gradually downward. A person feels profoundly alone when his father is taken by disease and his mother is taken by care giving. There doesn’t seem to be anyone to turn to. Nothing will “be alright” unless I make it alright. A very strong and capable father makes belief in a very strong and capable Father much simpler. How can a person be anything other than agnostic as to whether an all-powerful Provider exists when the only provider you’ve ever relied on loses his ability to feed himself. My father has a living ...

... Marketplace. Community. Community Perspective. New son gives meaning to Father's Day. By Steve Venenga. Sunday was my first Father's Day. Not the first one I've ever remembered, but the first one I've ever celebrated as a father. God blessed us with a son on April 16 of this year, our first child. I have never really appreciated the true meaning of Father's Day until this one. One reason for my Father's Day apathy has been my dad's attitude about it. His motto regarding the holiday has always been: That's nice boys. My wife, Kimber, and my son, Jacob, and I were in the hospital room on day one when we came to the realization that junior needed his pants changed. Of course, Jake needed new linens on his little crib, I needed a shower, and he needed a bath and a change of clothes. Since then, I've managed to nearly give him hypothermia in his first bath, nick one of his fingers trying to clip his little fingernails, and forget to cover the firehose during a diaper change or two. It has been one adventure ...

... March 15, 2012 Low-income mothers risk obesity to feed children March 15, 2012 Mothers who financially struggle to provide food for their families tend to put themselves at risk for obesity while trying to feed their children, according to Penn State sociologists. Mothers who do not have enough money to provide adequate food for their families -- food-insecure -- are more likely to be obese or overweight than fathers who face food shortages, as well as food-insecure, childless women and men, said Molly Martin, assistant professor of sociology and demography. Over time, these food-insecure mothers also gain more weight compared to all food-insecure men and food-insecure women not caring for children. "Trying to protect children from food insecurity is not as rare as it once was, and it's been on the rise for the last two years, if not the last five years." Mothers, who are often the food managers in the household, may take several actions to ensure that their children are fed, including skipping ...

... sociated with ineffective breastfeeding. Delayed onset of lactogenesis among first-time mothers is related to maternal obesity and factors associated with ineffective breastfeeding. MedLine Citation:. BACKGROUND: Delayed onset of lactogenesis OL is most common in primiparas and increases the risk of excess neonatal weight loss, formula supplementation, and early weaning. OBJECTIVE: We examined variables associated with delayed OL among first-time mothers who delivered at term and initiated breastfeeding n = 431. DESIGN: We conducted in-person interviews during pregnancy and at days 0, 3, and 7 postpartum and extracted obstetric and newborn information from medical records. We defined OL as delayed if it occurred after 72 h and used chi-square analysis to examine its association with potential risk factors across 6 dimensions: 1 prenatal characteristics, 2 maternal anthropometric characteristics, 3 labor and delivery experience, 4 newborn characteristics, 5 maternal postpartum factors, and 6 infant ...

The working mother who cannot be at home to cuddle a distraught child can relax - her voice on the phone soothes as much as a hug, a study suggests. Their mother's voice produced virtually the same amount of the stress-quelling hormone oxytocin as physical comfort. Mum on the line For one group of girls their mother was on hand immediately afterwards to offer physical comfort - a hug, or an arm around the shoulder. Oxytocin levels in the film group did not increase. But it's clear from these results that a mother's voice can have the same effect as a hug, even if they're not standing there.

In the early days of learning to breastfeed, there may be times when you feel like tossing in the nursing bra and reaching for a bottle. You may be tempted to believe those advisers who suggest that formula feeding is easier to just as good. Or you may worry that you’re “not the type of mother” who succeeds at breastfeeding. Yet when you consider how breastfeeding benefits your baby, your family, and yourself, you will find the determination you need to overcome any obstacles and master the womanly art of breastfeeding. What’s good for baby is also good for mother. Breastfeeding Benefits for Mothers:. Reduces the risk of breast cancer. Women who breastfeed reduce their risk of developing breast cancer by as much as 25 percent. That is, the more months or years a mother breastfeeds, the lower her risk of breast cancer. Reduces the risk of uterine and ovarian cancer. One of the reasons for the ...

In fact, new research suggests that if a child is born from an obese mother, it is likely to have significantly lower cognitive function compared to a child from a mother of a healthy weight. An observational study, which looked at 3,412 participants, found a strong link between pre-pregnancy obesity and math and reading test scores of children. In fact, the researchers saw a three-point drop in reading scores and a two-point reduction in math scores—around a 3 percent difference—in tests taken between the ages of five and seven. hese findings suggest that children born to women who are obese before pregnancy ...

*  Mother's milk: What determines breastfeeding rates in the UK?
A new study published in the open access journal BMC Pediatrics has examined the effects of maternal factors and hospital infant-feeding practices on breastfeeding. The group examined the effects of maternal socio-demographic factors, maternal obstetric factors, and hospital feeding practices on breastfeeding discontinuation in mothers supported by a peer-support programme. The results showed that ethnic group, mothers who had already given birth more than once, and hospital infant-feeding practices were the most important factors associated with length of breastfeeding period. However, the study found no significant associations between discontinuing breastfeeding among these mothers supported by the peer-support programme and other recognized factors previously thought to be connected, such as marital status , mode of delivery, time taken to initiate breastfeeding after birth and socio-economic deprivation. White mothers were 69% more likely to stop breastfeeding compared with non-White mothers; they also ...

... ience. Psychological Science. News Like Mama Bears, Nursing Mothers Defend Babies With A Vengeance. Women who breast-feed are far more likely to demonstrate a mama bear effect — aggressively protecting their infants and themselves — than women who bottle-feed their babies or non-mothers, according to a new study in the September issue of Psychological Science, a journal of the Association for Psychological Science. And when breast-feeding women behave aggressively, they register a lower blood pressure than other women, the study found. But the aggression demonstrated by breast-feeding mothers has its limits, Hahn-Holbrook added. The breast-feeding mothers reaction is known as lactation aggression or maternal defense in mammals. For the study, researchers recruited three groups of women — 18 nursing mothers, 17 women who were feeding formula to their babies and 20 non-mothers. The researchers found that breast-feeding mothers delivered sound blasts to the rude research assistant that were more than twice ...

(1/930) Recurrence of Marfan syndrome as a result of parental germ-line mosaicism for an FBN1 mutation.

Mutations in the FBN1 gene cause Marfan syndrome (MFS), a dominantly inherited connective tissue disease. Almost all the identified FBN1mutations have been family specific, and the rate of new mutations is high. We report here a de novo FBN1mutation that was identified in two sisters with MFS born to clinically unaffected parents. The paternity and maternity were unequivocally confirmed by genotyping. Although one of the parents had to be an obligatory carrier for the mutation, we could not detect the mutation in the leukocyte DNA of either parent. To identify which parent was a mosaic for the mutation we analyzed several tissues from both parents, with a quantitative and sensitive solid-phase minisequencing method. The mutation was not, however, detectable in any of the analyzed tissues. Although the mutation could not be identified in a sperm sample from the father or in samples of multiple tissue from the mother, we concluded that the mother was the likely mosaic parent and that the mutation must have occurred during the early development of her germ-line cells. Mosaicism confined to germ-line cells has rarely been reported, and this report of mosaicism for the FBN1 mutation in MFS represents an important case, in light of the evaluation of the recurrence risk in genetic counseling of families with MFS.  (+info)

(2/930) Immunization determinants in the eastern region of Ghana.

A study of the immunization determinants of children aged 12 to 18 months was conducted in 1991 in the Eastern Region of Ghana, using structured interviews of mothers and fathers. The completion of immunization schedules by one year, among the 294 children, was positively associated (P < 0.005) with the town of residence of the child and mother, the ability of the mother to speak English, the target child having been treated for illness at the local hospital, the child's mother having given birth to less than 5 children, the possession of a sewing machine by the mother, and the birth of the child in the current town of residence. Significantly higher immunization coverage levels were achieved where the Under Fives' Clinic was an affordable and acceptable service, integrating preventive and curative care, and where measures were implemented by the community to increase attendance levels at the Clinic. This was achieved among a target group who were otherwise at a relatively high risk of failing to complete immunization schedules on-time.  (+info)

(3/930) Indicators of socioeconomic status for adolescents: the WHO Health Behaviour in School-aged Children Survey.

Many indicators of socioeconomic status used for adults are inappropriate for use in research on adolescents. In a school-based survey of 4079 Scottish schoolchildren using a self-completion questionnaire, over 20% of 11-15 year olds were unable to provide a substantive response on father's occupation. In contrast, indicators derived to construct a family affluence scale, which included car ownership, telephone ownership and the child having their own unshared bedroom, resulted in a 98% response rate; and 92% of children responded to a question on their weekly spending money. The intercorrelations between the conventional indicator of father's occupation and each family affluence and spending money were examined, and their associations with a range of health indicators and health behaviour measures compared. Father's occupational status and family affluence were moderately correlated and showed broadly similar patterns of association with the selected health measures although there were also some distinct differences. Child's spending money was only weakly correlated with father's occupation and showed rather different patterns of association with health measures. A case is made for the use of multiple indicators of socioeconomic status in adolescent health surveys, and it is argued that that the family affluence scale provides a useful and easily applied additional indicator to father's occupation or an alternative measure of socioeconomic background where occupational data are unavailable.  (+info)

(4/930) Modulation of allospecific CTL responses during pregnancy in equids: an immunological barrier to interspecies matings?

Maternal immune recognition of the developing conceptus in equine pregnancy is characterized by the strongest and most consistent alloantibody response described in any species, a response directed almost exclusively against paternal MHC class I Ags. This work investigated the cellular immune response to paternal MHC Ags in pregnant and nonpregnant horses and donkeys, and in horses carrying interspecies hybrid mule conceptuses. We observed profound decreases in classical, MHC-restricted, CTL activity to allogeneic paternal cells in peripheral blood lymphocytes from both horse mares and donkey jennets carrying intraspecies pregnancies, compared with cells from nonpregnant controls. This is the first evidence in a randomly bred species for a generalized systemic shift of immune reactivity away from cellular and toward humoral immunity during pregnancy. Surprisingly, mares carrying interspecies hybrid mule conceptuses did not exhibit this transient, pregnancy-associated decrease in CTL activity. The failure of interspecies pregnancy to down-regulate cellular immune responses may be a heretofore-unrecognized, subtle barrier to reproductive success between species.  (+info)

(5/930) Long-term effects on sexual function and fertility after treatment of testicular cancer.

This retrospective study evaluates the types and incidences of sexual disturbances and fertility distress in patients cured from testicular cancer and examines whether there is an effect resulting from different treatment modalities. A self-reported questionnaire was sent to 124 randomly selected patients who were treated at Hanover University Medical School between 1970 and 1993. Ninety-eight patients were included in the study, representing a response rate of 78%. All patients had been in complete remission (CR) for at least 24 months. The median age at diagnosis was 28 years (range 17-44). The median follow-up at the time of study was 12.0 years (range 2.8-25.6). Twenty patients (20%) had been treated for seminomatous and 78 patients (80%) for non-seminomatous germ cell tumours. Treatment included surveillance (7%), primary retroperitoneal lymph node dissection (RPLND) (13%), chemotherapy (CT) (33%), CT + secondary resection of residual retroperitoneal tumour mass (SRRTM) (43%) and infradiaphragmatic radiotherapy (4%). Patients receiving two treatment modalities (CT+SRRTM) reported more frequent an unfulfilled wish for children. Inability of ejaculation was clearly associated with RPLND and SRRTM. Subjective aspects of sexuality, like loss of sexual drive and reduced erectile potential, occurred only in a minority of patients after treatment. No abnormalities were observed concerning the course of pregnancies of partners. In conclusion, sexual dysfunction and infertility are common long-lasting sequelae in testicular cancer survivors affecting approximately 20% of patients. The relative risk for infertility appeared to be elevated for patients treated with the combination of CT+SRRTM. Twenty-one of 40 patients were able to fulfil their wish for children, and no congenital abnormalities were observed in these children.  (+info)

(6/930) Excessive paternal transmission in psoriatic arthritis.

OBJECTIVE: The differential expression of a disease according to the sex of the disease-transmitting parent has been demonstrated in several autoimmune disorders. The purpose of the present study was to determine whether there are differences in the transmission and expression of psoriatic arthritis (PsA) that are dependent on the sex of the affected parent. METHODS: All probands (patients with PsA) were identified from among the patients attending the University of Toronto Psoriatic Arthritis Clinic. A self-reported family history of psoriasis or PsA was noted for each proband. Differences in parental and offspring transmission with respect to the proband were evaluated. In addition, the expression of PsA according to the sex of the affected parent was assessed at the time of the proband's presentation to the clinic. RESULTS: Ninety-five probands had affected parents: 62 (65%) had an affected father, and 33 (35%) had an affected mother. Thus, the proportion of paternal transmission (0.65) was significantly greater than was expected (0.5) (P = 0.001). Twelve of 74 offspring from male probands (16.2%) were affected with psoriasis or PsA, as compared with 9 of 108 offspring from female probands (8.3%) (P = 0.10). Probands whose fathers were affected had a higher frequency of skin lesions prior to arthritis (P = 0.047), an erythrocyte sedimentation rate > 15 mm/hour (P = 0.044), and a lower incidence of rheumatoid factor (P = 0.044). No differences were noted with respect to age at the onset of psoriasis or PsA, the severity of the PsA, or the frequency of HLA antigens. CONCLUSION: There appears to be excessive paternal transmission in PsA. Further clinical confirmation and elucidation of its genetic basis is warranted.  (+info)

(7/930) Excess maternal transmission of type 2 diabetes. The Northern California Kaiser Permanente Diabetes Registry.

OBJECTIVE: To assess excess maternal transmission of type 2 diabetes in a multiethnic cohort. Previous studies have reported higher prevalence of diabetes among mothers of probands with type 2 diabetes than among fathers. This analysis is vulnerable to biases, and this pattern has not been observed in all populations or races. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: We assessed evidence for excess maternal transmission among 42,533 survey respondents with type 2 diabetes (probands) by calculating the prevalence of diabetes in their siblings and offspring. To assess data quality, we evaluated completeness of family history data provided. Accuracy of family information reported by probands was also evaluated by comparing survey responses in a subsample of 206 probands with family histories modified after further interviews with relatives. RESULTS: Siblings (n = 60,532) of probands with affected mothers had a greater prevalence of diabetes (20%) than those with affected fathers (17%) (P < 0.001 for adjusted odds ratios). Prevalence of diabetes was higher among the offspring (n = 72,087) of female (3.4%) versus male (2.2%) probands (P < 0.001 for adjusted odds ratios). These patterns were evident in all races and both sexes; however, the effect size was clinically insignificant in African-Americans and male offspring. In general, probands provided more complete data about diabetes status for the maternal arm of the pedigree than the paternal arm. Completeness of knowledge was not related to proband sex, but was related to education and race, and inversely to age. Accuracy of proband-reported family history was consistently good (kappa statistics generally > 0.70). CONCLUSIONS: Excess maternal transmission was observed in all races and both sexes, although the size of the excess was negligible in African-Americans and male offspring. Potential reporting and censoring biases are discussed.  (+info)

(8/930) Evaluation of parental mitochondrial inheritance in neonates born after intracytoplasmic sperm injection.

Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) is now used when severe male-factor infertility has been documented. Since defective mitochondrial functions may result in male hypofertility, it is of prime importance to evaluate the risk of paternal transmission of an mtDNA defect to neonates. DNA samples from the blood of 21 infertile couples and their 27 neonates born after ICSI were studied. The highly polymorphic mtDNA D-loop region was analyzed by four PCR-based approaches. With denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis (DGGE), which allows 2% of a minor mtDNA species to be detected, the 27 newborns had a DGGE pattern identical to that of their mother but different from that of their father. Heteroplasmy documented in several parents and children supported an exclusive maternal inheritance of mtDNA. The parental origin of the children's mtDNA molecules also was studied by more-sensitive assays: restriction-endonuclease analysis (REA) of alpha[32P]-radiolabeled PCR products; paternal-specific PCR assay; and depletion of maternal mtDNA, followed by REA. We did not detect paternal mtDNA in nine neonates, with a sensitivity level of 0.01% in five children, 0.1% in two children, and 1% in two children. The estimated ratio of sperm-to-oocyte mtDNA molecules in humans is 0.1%-1.5%. Thus, we conclude that, in these families, the ICSI procedure performed with mature spermatozoa did not alter the uniparental pattern of inheritance of mtDNA.  (+info)

Why do girls need a father figure in their lives often more than boys do? How do fathers affect a daughter?


  • We often hear about how fathers serve as role models for sons, but often girls need them even more so. Why is that? Why does a girl need her daddy as much as her brother?
  • Fathers (good and bad) are a guideline for girls when looking for their own partners. My hubby is very similar to my dad. Both hard working, both family orientated, both loyal, both protective, both former bad boys. My sister's fiance is the same. I think if we had had a different father, we would have ended up with very different men. I hope that when my daughter starts to date, she will go for boys with qualities similar to her own father.


Just curious as to whether there are any first fathers here reading about adoption?


  • I've met a few fathers over the years who have serious sadness about losing a child to adoption, but usually it's mothers who read and post on sites such as this. Wondering why that is?
  • This is a good question. I suspect they are less vocal about adoption loss due to social stereotypes about fathers in general, whether it is the emotionally distant workaholic, the deadbeat dad, or the philanderer who fathers children with numerous women. We hear a lot about them because it's easy to bash them, just like it's easy to bash natural mothers. Sadly I'm sure there are more than a few who fit kitta's description, too. But I'm inclined to believe that the loss of your flesh and blood leaves a permanent scar on your soul. Mother's may feel it more profoundly due to the in-utero bonding process and maternal hormones, but I think fathers can be affected, as well. Although they aren't as outspoken about the loss, I have noticed a trend of father's having an easier time with reunion. This is just my observation from reading blogs and forums, but it does seem that at least the initial reunion is a little easier for the father to process. Could this be due to fathers lacking the primal mother-child bond...does that become a potentially devastating emotional Mt. Everest for many mothers? Speculating here, just my own observations. On a similar note, there are often comments about male adoptees searching and reuniting less frequently than female adoptees. I also question this stereotype because among the mothers I know who are reunited, the adoptees are evenly split between male and female. If women searched and reunited in greater numbers I would expect to know mostly mothers and daughters...that is not the case.


Is it possible to change the fathers name on the birth certificate of the child?


  • I want to change the father into a different father for personal reasons is it possible? Like if I can change the fathers name on my 4 month old baby?
  • No you cannot. The birth certificate is a LEGAL document. You need to have a paternity test done and find out who the father of the baby is if the current father listed is not really your baby's father. Whoever is on that birth certificate has FULL legal rights to your child.


How many of you are fathers or men and how often do you visit this forum?


  • I love to see fathers commenting. It is the nicest thing.
  • I am an expecting father.


How do I go about adopting my fiance son without real fathers permission?


  • I am about to get married and when i do I want to adopt her 8yr old son. His father is a loser and has absolutly nothing to do with him, but he has control problems and probaly would not sign over parental rights. It took years and the courts finally threatning him to get any child support at all from him. Can I adopt him without the fathers permission?
  • You can't. The biological father has to relinquish rights for you to be able to adopt.


What do you think of women with multiple fathers for their children?


  • I usually am not a very judgmental person, but the other day I was watching a youtube vlog of a young mother with three children, and all of them had different fathers, one of them was even in prison! I immediately thought it was trashy! But my grandmother, has three children with two men, my dad with her first husband and her daughters with her second husband. I don't think this is trashy at all. What do you think of women who have children with different fathers?
  • At the school where I teach, there are some happy blended families with "his, hers, ours" children. Basically, in these situations (like your grandmother's), the mom in this case had children in a previous marriage that didn't work out. She is now in a (presumably) better marriage and had another child or two. As long as the children are cared-for, well-groomed, well-mannered, and so on, it's clear that these children are doing fine. I also see several of these situations you're hinting at. Single mom (possibly with a new boyfriend in tow at any particular moment) with two or three or even four different children, all having different dads. The more dads there are, the more it makes me suspect that these children are not the result of a woman carefully evaluating her relationship and deciding that THIS man is worth reproducing with. Women who seem to fall pregnant so easily are not mysteriously more fertile than the rest of us. Statistically speaking, if everyone were using at least one method of birth control consistently and accurately, there would be far fewer of these one-mom, multi-dad family structures. I should note, however, that there are women that fall in a middle ground: They may have kids with different fathers as a result of rash decisions or lack of effective birth control use (no excuse for that!), but they're taking care to raise their children conscientiously and carefully. End point: I think women with trashy BEHAVIOR are trashy. Women who have possibly reproduced with an undeserving man or two in the past but no longer exhibit those kinds of massive errors in judgment are NOT trashy women.


Why do fathers never have a say in anything except paying child support?


  • Referring to parents that are not together, of course. Not all fathers are 'deadbeat dads', so how is it that the mother can take away all his rights?
  • I know how you feel. We are going through the same thing. My partner is paying close on $200 a fortnight to a kid his isnt even allowed to talk to on the phone and he isnt allowed to see her. Its not fair, we have called the CSA and we just get dicked around. Also, I have a child the same age as his, and all I get is a lousey $20 a month from the drop kick and he never bothers to try and contact her or help out when he can. I think the CSA needs to wake up and give the paying fathers a break. We had to pay out an extra $500 to the mother of his child because when we had her for a fortnight the mother said we didnt have to pay the CS for the fortnight, but then cause there was an arguement when she went home, the mother went to CSA and had the debt collected, and even though we told them that she had agreed to let us keep that fortnights CS she lied and ended up winning the dispute. And now, having a 6yo and a 6 month old at home, its hard to make ends meet most times, but you tell them you really cant afford to pay that amout but they dont care about anyone but the person receiving the money.. bunch of greedy bastards.. I hate the CSA! Yeah I went off topic a little but i think they should make some rule that the father MUST have a certain amount of contact for the parent with custody to actually receive the money
