Top 2000 Baby Names

crazy-babyThanks to the almighty Social Security Administration, they compiled a list of the top 2000 names that were given to babies in the United States between 2000 and 2007, embroidered onto baby gifts, etched onto baby shower favors, and forever scarring children around our country.  Think you’re being original in choosing a baby name? Nah. Nice try though.  If over 6,600 people named their boys Maximillian and over 7,200 named their daughter Anahi, then you’ve probably got company.

Baby Evenflo High Chair Recall!

evenflo-majestic-high-chair-recallOne of the things you probably do not want to put in the pile of baby shower gifts is a high chair from Evenflo.  The high chair manfuacturer has issued an immediate recall of over 95,000 Majestic high chairs that were distributed via Toys R’ Us, Walmart online, Babies R’ Us, and Burlington Coat Factory.  The high chairs were sold between January 2006 and May 2007.  The problem is that pieces are literally falling off of the chairs including the seat itself.  Over 1000 reports started pouring in to Evenflo of injuries, broken bones, and head bruises. The company instructed anyone that may be using the high chairs to stop using them immediately and call them at 1-800-233-5921 to get a repair kit.

If you bought one as a baby gift, head over to Corner Stork Baby Gifts and quickly pick up another unique baby gift that will make you the star of the party. This high chair will get you remembered in a bad way. Go to Corner Stork instead.

8 Child Illnesses & What To Do

Being a parent of 4 (3 girls and a boy), I’m not at a loss for home remedies or how to handle children’s little emergencies.  But science changes, drugs change, and well, things change.  Parents Magazine did a great article covering 8 illnesses and how to handle them including what drugs to use, what to expect and how to even avoid them.  Of course, I’m passing on the great tips and adding my usual spin.

Illness #1 – The Common Cold
The Chance That Your Child Will Get It: 99 percent
Symptoms: Coughing, sore throat, runny nose along with congestion, mild fever or headache, and sneezing.
Contagious? Yes, for 5 days
How to Fix It: Keep them drinking and make sure they’re resting. Buy a humidifier that has cool mist (not heat).  You can use Acetaminophen or Ibuprofen for their headaches and the aches in general.  You can also use a saline nose spray (like Little Noses) to ease the congestion.  If your child is under 6, stay away from the cold medicine.
Things You Should Know: Even if you’re child is feeling better, those germs can be all over the toys, handles on the doors, toilet handles and basically anywhere they touched for up to 2 days.  Since there are more than 200 cold causing viruses, your child could catch a new bug each time.  To cut down the length of the cold, try to keep your child from rubbing her eyes and nose and have her wash her hands frequently with an antibacterial hand soap.  You should also expect for them to catch it from grocery cart handles, public booster seats and high chairs and even restaurant tabletops. Wipe them down.  Your friends and family will call you Worry Wanda or Freak Out Fred, but you can smirk when they have to take sick days to stay home with their sniffling kid.

Illness #2 – RSV (Respiratory Syncytial Virus)
The Chance That Your Child Will Get It: 90 percent are affected by age 2
Symptoms: A lot of the symptoms look like common cold symptoms, but in about 40% of the cases it can trigger bronchiolitis which is an infection in their small airways that can cause rapid breathing, wheezing, or an ongoing persistent cough.
Contagious? Yes, for up to EIGHT days.  Yes, EIGHT!
How to Fix It: Handle it just like you would a cold, but if your child has a hard time breathing or starts breathing fast, then you need to call your pediatrician immediately.  The pediatrician may presribe an inhaled medication to relax the airways or may even check them into the hospital to keep it under control and a watchful eye.
Things You Should Know: Air pollutants can make RSV even worse like cigarette smoke, perfumes, and fireplaces (wood burning).

Illness #3 – Viral Gastroenteritis
The Chance That Your Child Will Get It: Before children reach the age of four, 90 percent will get a stomach bug.
Symptoms: Fever, nausea and vomiting, and the wonderful diarrhea.
Contagious? EXTREMELY! Your child is unbelievably contagious during the time he has diarrhea and it can even continue to live in the stool for several WEEKS after that.  So always close the lid when you flush, and ALWAYS wash hands VERY thoroughly after restroom visits.
How to Fix It: Plenty and lots of fluids and especially drinks like Pedialyte and water to keep your child from getting dehydrated.  If your child can’t seem to keep anything down, have her take sips from a straw, spoon, or dropper.  You can also try ice pops and Jello, since most kids would crawl out of their death beds to get to an ice pop.
Things You Should Know: Luckily there is a brand new oral rotavirus vaccine which is even safe for babies as young as 2 months which has greatly reduced the occurrences of this horrid virus by a whopping 79%.

Illness #4 – Roseola
The Chance That Your Child Will Get It: 77% of children will catch Roseola before the age of 2.
Symptoms: Typically you’ll see a red rash on their body that lasts for a few days, but some kids don’t even get that.  Some kids will get a fever, cough and diarrhea.  According to Mayo Eugenia Little Childrens Hospital, if the rash doesn’t happen, most parents don’t even know their kid has Roseola.  The picture here can be seen full screen by clicking the image.
Contagious? The rash isn’t contagious, but your child can give Roseola to other kids until the fever breaks.
How to Fix It: Ibuprofen and Acetaminophen can be used on children 6 months or older to deal with the fever. As for the rash, just ignore it since it will go away on its own. It looks a little like measles, but it’s not itchy or painful.
Things You Should Know: The virus that causes Roseola can stay in the body for a couple months and reactivate itself, so it’s one of those fun viruses.

Illness #5 – Ear Infection
The Chance That Your Child Will Get It: 75% of children will get an ear infection by the age of 3.
Symptoms: My youngest daughter just got an ear infection at 5 months, so I can answer this outright.  Babies this young get very irritable and will have problems sleeping at night.  The primary reason is that the infection is VERY uncomfortable when they’re lying down.  They will also tug at their ears and run a slight fever.
Contagious? No, but the cold that caused it is.
How to Fix It: Ibuprofen and Acetaminophen can be used on children 6 months or older to deal with the fever.   The pediatrician will probably want to prescribe a antibiotic for the ear infection or may possibly want to wait to see if it clears up itself.  Unless there’s a good reason not to, push for the antibiotic unless you like paying for multiple doctor visits.
Things You Should Know: Ear infections can pop up quickly and without notice. You can go from perfectly normal to full blow ear infection overnight.

Illness #6 – The Flu (Influenza)
The Chance That Your Child Will Get It: 40% of children get the flu every year.
Symptoms: Body aches, chills, high fever, cough, runny noise, and sore throat.
Contagious? Yes. It can be given to anyone within a 2 week period.
How to Fix It: The article suggest that the best cure is prevention.  Having your child get a flu shot in the fall (6 months or older).  If you catch it coming on within the first 48 hours, the doctor can give your child a medication called Tamiflu which can reduce the duration of the flu and symptoms, but they’ll still be miserable.  Just for consideraly less time.  Outside of that, treat just like a cold.
Things You Should Know: Flu shots don’t fully protect your child since different strains of the virus land every year, but it’s still best to get it. Children under 2 and with asthma are at a very high risk for complications from breathing issues to dehydration that could land them in the hospital.

Illness #7 – Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease
The Chance That Your Child Will Get It: 20%
Symptoms: Blister-like sores in and around the mouth that are pretty painful, bumps on the palms of the hands, fingers and soles of the feet and all topped with a fever.  If it’s full blown, your child may not want to drink, eat or even walk.
Contagious? Yes and even moreso when the symptoms are present.
How to Fix It: Using Ibuprofen, Acetaminophen or other pain medicine prescribed or suggested by your pediatrician to deal with the pain.  Probably the only thing you’ll get them to eat is going to be the best anyway such as ice pops, yogurt and smooth, cool foods like sherbert and pudding. Avoid foods that are salty or spicy.  New Jersey Pediatrician Deborah Goldring says that you should try a mixture of a half teaspoon antacid (like Mylanta) and Benadryl and then use a cotton swab to dab it on the child’s mouth, gums, tongue and inside of her cheeks to greatly relieve pain and discomfort.  From personal experience with rashes like this, taking a warm bath using Aveeno bath powder can also help greatly in minimizing the discomfort.
Things You Should Know: This virus can stay in your child’s stool for several weeks, so be sure to wash hands very thoroughly after using the restroom or changing their diapers and close the lid when flushing the toilet.

Illness #8 – Viral Croup
The Chance That Your Child Will Get It: 16% of children get this virus by the time they’re 6.
Symptoms: This virus attacks the voice box and windpipe which causes the “croup cough” that sounds like a barking, hoarse cough that sounds painful to even hear it.  It also causes a harsh high pitched noise when your child takes a breath.  The most severe of which typically happens at night.
Contagious? Yes to younger children, but older kids and adults will most likely just walk away with a cold.
How to Fix It: Run a hot shower in the smaller of your bathrooms to cause steam and let them sit close to the shower (but not in the shower since it’s hot – duh) until some of the symptoms ease.  Then take them out into the cold air just outside of the bathroom. You can also do it in reverse if it’s hot outside and have them breathe in deeply in front of the open freezer door.  The pediatrician may prescribe steroids if it gets too severe.
Things You Should Know: If your child has difficulty breathing and their ribs are pulling in and out with each breath, call the doctor and head for the emergency room IMMEDIATELY!

5 Foods To Eat and 5 To Avoid While Pregnant

CBS News did a nice research piece laying out the types of foods you should avoid while you’re pregnant and also included the “superfoods” that you simply must eat for your unborn child to get some great benefits.  Pregnancy is a very important time and what you take in is what your baby takes in.  Some of these things will be obvious while others may be quite surprising. So without further ado, here’s the list with my trademark commentary.  Let’s start with the 5 things to avoid at all costs.

1) Alcohol

This should be obvious to all pregnant women and is no secret.  Back in the day, some doctors may have suggested that a drink a day would be okay.  Times change and that’s bad advice now.  Here’s the real story that every pregnant woman should know; Alcohol increases a baby’s risk of fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD) – a series of developmental problems that can affect a child’s ability to learn throughout their lifetime. In its most extreme form called fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS) it can cause varying degrees of birth defects and mental retardation.  However, if you did not know you were pregnant and have been drinking, don’t freak out.  Doctors say that as long as you’ve stopped once you found out and start taking the recommended daily intake of Folic Acid (400 micrograms), you’ll greatly reduce the probability of any consequences.

2) Saccharin

Many people think that you should stay away from sugar and that using sugar substitute products are better options.  Play the game show buzzer sound here.  Saccharin crosses the placenta and straight into the baby’s bloodstream.  Other sweeteners haven’t shown any harm to fetuses, but saccharin (most commonly found in Sweet ‘N Low) is showing up as more difficult for a baby’s system to clear out as opposed to an adult which means that it can build up to a dangerous level.  Been taking in saccharin?  Just stop because it’s a minimal problem in early stages of pregnancy, but gets worse as your pregnancy progresses.

3) High Mercury Seafood

Most seafood and shellfish can actually greatly help a baby’s development as well as for your own benefit.  But seafood that contains high levels of mercury can potentially harm the nervous system of your developing baby.  You should keep your intake of seafood to two average meals a week.  Yes, a week.  Not a day.  That includes fish like canned light tuna, shrimp, catfish and pollack.   So what seafood has high levels of mercury?  Typically the larger the fish, the more mercury it potentially has.  Fish such as shark, king mackerel, swordfish, as well as albacore and tuna steak.   As for sushi, avoid it at all costs.  According to WebMD, the possibility of parasites and bacteria is incredibly high with raw fish and can be very dangerous during pregnancy.

4) Too Much Caffeine

While you may be feeling tired, don’t try and boost your energy with caffeine or sugar.  While there’s nothing documented definitively in the long term, in the short term it has been shown to be responsible for low birth weight and risk of miscarriage.  Add to that that there’s a problem with it being a mild stimulant and diuretic which is not suggested anyway during pregnancy due to their affect on your baby’s development.  Keep your intake to around 300 mg daily (around 3 cups of coffee) and be sure to count sodas into your tally.  Yes, energy drinks are a big NO!

5) Unpasteurized Cheese and Lunch Meats

The reason that this is on the list is because of what’s referred to as listeriosis. It’s a bacteria that can increase the risk of miscarriage, premature birth or even worse, stillborn babies.  Paying attention now?  This bacteria lives in unpasteurized cheese like feta, blue cheese, queso blanco, Panela, Brie, Roquefort, Camembert, and queso fresco.  But you can also find it in unpasteurized fruit juices, hot dogs, and deli meats like turkey, ham, salami and bologna.  Pasteurization kills this bacteria, so if the cheese is made with pasteurized milk, you’re good to go.   As for the meats, boil the hot dogs or heat lunch meat until it’s steaming hot since the intense heat will kill the bacteria.

Now, The 5 Superfoods You Really Must Eat When Pregnant

1) Bran Cereal with Extra Fiber

Doctors in Seattle discovered that a daily intake of 24 grams of fiber greatly reduced risk of preeclampsia (a form of high blood pressure) by a huge 51%.  That cuts your risk in half and that’s huge.  In addition, it will also help you avoid constipation and the resulting hemorrhoids which are very popular with pregnancy.  Cereals high in fiber and folic acid can also reduce the risk of birth defects.  CBS gave a short list of cereals that are high in fiber and that also offer the daily recommended fiber intake and include;  Kellogg’s All Bran, Total’s line of cereals including Total Wheat Flakes, Total Corn Flakes, and Total Raisin Bran, Product 19, Multigrain Cheerios, and Smart Start.

2) The Mighty OJ

Two cups of orange juice a day can bring your blood pressure down TEN points.  That 10 points can be the difference of night and day since your blood pressure goes through the roof during delivery and you need all of the extra room you can muster.  Additionally, the high Vitamin C count can also reduce the preeclampsia (high blood pressure) and brands like Minute Maid and Tropicana contain an additional boost of calcium.  Da Bones baby.

3) Banana Strawberry Smoothie

This was strange one to see on the list until it’s explained why.  This drink concoction is jam packed with incredible baby nutrients that will reduce a lot of pregnancy complications.  The big Vitamin C boost not only helps preeclampsia, but it can also help reduce the risk of the premature rupture of membranes which leads to premature birth.  High calcium foods like low-fat yogurt and milk can also help fluid retention which will help keep your blood pressure down. Are you beginning to see the pattern here with the high blood pressure concerns?  Smoothie Recipe: Combine bananas, strawberries, ice, milk (or low-fat yogurt) in a blender and put on high speed until smooth.  Drinkey, drinkey.

4) Low Fat Yogurt

The high calcium and protein that comes with eating low-fat yogurt helps your baby’s development, but they also help your muscles from cramping which can be a big problem during pregnancy. The calcium can also reduce bloating and water retention and some findings indicate that it can help offset yeast infections which is also common with pregnancies.

5) Salmon

And the last item on the superfood list is salmon.  While the FDA has said that you shouldn’t consume anymore than 12 ounces of salmon per week, studies released in the BMJ indicate that even a mere 6 ounces per week reduces the risk of premature birth from 7.1 percent down to 1.9 percent.   Your newborn will also sleep more soundly if you eat fish while you’re pregnant.  The Journal of Clinical Nutrition documented that women that consumed the fatty acids found in salmon during the last trimester ended up having babies that had much healthier sleeping patterns.   The fatty acid component they are referring to is called DHA and it’s packed in cold water fish like salmon.

The Death of Hannah Montana

Hello all, Mr. Christopher from the Corner Stork Baby Gifts blog with some news that’s almost old news, but with a dash of insight about Hannah Montana, Disney, Miley Cyrus, Billy Ray Cyrus, the apparent debacle that is brewing among them, and what will inevitably be the demise of the Disney show according to inside sources.  I don’t think it was any surprise to anyone with any marketing background about the simple premise behind the Hannah Montana – Miley Cyrus machine and the plan that was to unfold.  For those that don’t know, Hannah Montana is a Disney Channel show that airs pretty much everyday that has a simple premise.  A teen girl named Miley is a regular teen by day with her father (played by her actual life dad Billy Ray Cyrus) and her brother Jackson.  During the day, they’re normal, but unbeknown to their friends (some of their friends) and acquaintances, Miley is actually teen rock superstar Hannah Montana by night and her father is her manager.  That’s the premise.

The real life marketing aspect was obvious.  Miley would let the Hannah Montana show and concerts fund her career and when she was ready to break free of the teen overtones, she would migrate into the Miley Cyrus persona to continue her music career.  Billy Ray Cyrus (of Achy Breaky Heart fame) has managed his daughters fame and has done so brilliantly.  However, according to sources, Miley and Billy are ready to jump ship already and begin the second half of the marketing plan even before the Hannah Montana cog of the machine has crested.  Sources at Disney say that Billy Ray is telling staffers that they only plan to do about 6 more episodes (to finish out the 3rd season) and then they are finished with Hannah Montana.   Disney indicates that while there is not anymore contractual obligations to the Cyrus’s beyond season 3, that they have anticipated and banked on at least one more season beyond that.

Disney officials indicate that the Cyrus’s are ungrateful for their success and are acting irresponsibly for abandoning the show and is being disrespectful to Disney that has sponsored their success from the beginning.  And while there may be truth to that statement, let’s look at the other side.  I couldn’t help but be shocked by an article I read on the “richest teen celebrities” that has Miley making a paltry $25 million.  Obviously $25 million is far from paltry, but as I dropped my daughter off at school and watch as 9 out of 10 girls are adorning something Hannah Montana whether it be a shirt, backpack, shoes, hair extensions, whatever, how can she be making any less than triple that amount?  The hysteria that is Hannah Montana is outrageous.  Top it off that Miley has actually found a way onto Top 40 mainstream radio which now sends adults to the record stores (or iTunes to do so secretly).

With AOL and Fox reporting that the Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus machine is worth 1 BILLION dollars a year, where exactly is the rest of that money going?  That’s a HUGE discrepancy between the artist and Disney’s take (hereby referred to as “the man”).  Obviously there is marketing expense, staff, etc.  But for those doing the math, $25 million is 4% of a billion.   So Miley and Pops decided that enough is enough and it’s time to move on to chase the musical part of the plan.  And while this may seem like the right thing to do from a monetary aspect, do they really have the momentum she’ll need when you take Disney out of the equation?  Billy Ray believes they do and has already begun acting as if it’s a done deal.  Sources on the Hannah Montana set say that Miley and her father show up to the set hours late with an “attitude” and have begun making their own schedules which is upsetting staff and alienating friends.   Emily Osment that plays Lilly on the hit TV show has begun growing in popularity and some sources from Chicago Sun Times say that most of the tension on the set is a result of Miley’s jealousy of Emily’s rise to fame.  Anyone from the outside can obviously see that there’s no way that Emily can come even remotely close to Miley’s level of fame, so this rift that currently exists between the friends is actually very silly.  Not to mention that Miley should be happy for the success of her friends especially when her own is so solidly set.  Even if Miley’s run of good fortune were to end today, she’s sitting on millions and millions of dollars that will carry her family and many generations to come into a comfortable existence.

While Miley’s reps are claiming that the desire to quit the show is not true, it flies directly in the face of Billy Ray’s actions and statements which seem to insinuate that it’s indeed over.  He’s also been heard “dissing” Disney management and being very animate about his distaste for the situation.  Add to the controversy the volatile mix of outright total lack of consideration for their cast mates by showing up late to tapings along with the friction and tension so thick that it could be cut with a butter knife.  But Billy Ray, being a musician, may be trying to live through Miley and pushing her into the music business before she’s actually ready.  Her success is stellar, but some things shouldn’t be rushed if there’s no definitive line as to whose desire it is to move on.  Billy Ray has been able to salvage his own musical career as a result of his daughter, so it’s inevitable that he would want to feed that side of the animal, but the saying goes that the tail doesn’t wag the dog.  And in this case, the tail needs the dog and that dog is Disney and Hannah Montana.  For now.

Needless to say, according to solid sources, they are confident that this third season of Hannah Montana will be the last for the show unless Disney reaches deeper into its pockets to entice Miley and Billy to stay for a fourth.  The fourth season is a critical season if Hannah Montana is to score residuals for reruns.  The wisest decision for Miley is to stay put to secure her residual income, but her and daddy will need to have a pow wow with the staff to discuss their concerns because the problem is not with the staff itself.  Because if the tensions that exist are truly a result of Miley’s jealousy, she desperately needs to lay that aside since her fame and fortune is secure.  Jealousy makes you weak.  But if they stay, they desperately need to put the tensions to ease with staff and communicate with them or the fourth season will never happen.  Miley should also focus on getting herself more solidly situated as a music artist and she could certainly use the time to do so while taping an incredible 401K stockpile and take advantage of the opportunities afforded to her on the back of the powerhouse that is Disney.

In closing, it’s understandable why Billy Ray is wanting to strike while the iron is hot, but when you’re in the middle of the hurricane it’s easy to lose sight of the big picture.  Ultimately it will be the Cyrus’s decision, but Miley should put her foot down and be clear as to what her desires are.  The Hannah Montana machine has a LOT of steam left and is still the biggest show anywhere on TV including the major networks and one more season would be a perfect decision financially and professionally for her.  Hopefully Billy can put his angst aside with Disney management, but Disney (I mean, “the man”) should listen to what Billy’s qualms are directly instead of hearing about everything second hand.  They have a lot riding on their willingness to stay and they should do whatever is necessary to hold onto their golden goose.  But the golden goose also deserves a comfy nest.

Diaper Saves Baby From Death

An 18 month old baby in Brazil managed to crawl out a window of a third floor apartment building and survived thanks to his diaper. As the baby was falling, the diaper snagged on a security spike on the side of the building which stopped the baby midway to the ground, held him suspended for a moment and then the diaper opened and he continued his fall to the ground.

A police officer on the case noted that, “The diaper opened and the baby fell to the ground, but at a much slower speed. The diaper obviously lessened the impact of the fall and saved the baby’s life.” The child is being treated for only small fractures at Hospital Memorial in Sao Jose, where spokesman Gilberto Tenorio said that he is in stable condition.

If the accompanying image along with this story doesn’t give you chills and have you checking your windows, I don’t know what would.  These parents should head over to Corner Stork Baby Gifts and buy a diaper cake to celebrate diapers and then write a check to the maker of that diaper brand that had enough strength to hold their child suspended for a few moments.

New Report Shows Babies Need Tummy Time!

Mr. Christopher from Corner Stork Baby Blog with an important new finding. A new study from the American Physical Therapy Association says that babies that don’t get enough “tummy time” set themselves up for a lifetime of learning difficulties. Most new parents are confused because they are told before they even leave the hospital that their babies need to sleep on their backs to reduce the possibility of suffocation or crib death. While that rule stays the same, many parents simply aren’t putting their babies on their stomachs at all even when they’re not sleeping and it’s causing a huge problem with the baby’s development.

Babies that don’t get enough time on their stomachs experience a major delay in developing motor skills including walking, hand-eye coordination and even sitting. Even new alterations in car seat technology has baby going from car seat to high chair to baby carriage to bed and all the while on their backs. Babies simply aren’t getting enough time on their tummies. The cause of which is an increased number of children with attention deficit disorder, poor balance or coordination, dyslexia, and poor eye tracking.

The shocking part is that the problem is easily fixed by giving the baby a few minutes on their stomachs before feedings, nap time or simply when you’re spending some quality time. The result of this simple implementation will help to alleviate the increased probability of the developmental issues.

And don’t forget to visit great baby gift websites like Corner Stork Baby Gifts at http://www.cornerstorkbabygifts.com that offers a wide variety of baby toys to help babies further develop their skills like the classic stacking toys, jack in the box and much more including vintage baby gift ideas.
