Kira: I was brought up in a traditional household. My dad was the provider, and my mom really did everything else.

Sidi: My mom was my rock. I saw her doing everything: wash people's clothes, feed me and my brother.

Kira: I don't even think to this day my dad has changed a diaper. So that was definitely a mom job.

Sidi: I didn't grow up with a father. I don't even like to talk about that. Life in Mali is tough. Women do cooking, they carry food, they make food for dinner, lunch, breakfast. They wash the children. They do everything! Men, we just chill. Seeing my mom doing it, I did not appreciate it. I know she does it every day. She didn't have a choice. I'm just trying to do something to change that.

Kira: When I was a child, my mom had her jobs, my dad had his jobs, and they didn't really cross. But Sidi and I are both working, we're both in and out of the house, we're both doing stuff around the house. I'll go to work, Sidi is with the kids during the day.

Sidi: I wake up and feed Wyatt. We do play. We try to do some activity inside. As a parent you always have something to do.

Kira: I get to come home around 3, 3:30. And then he goes to work and I hang out with the kids until dinnertime.

Sidi: I love for her to see what I do. And maybe, hopefully, she'll be able to learn it and probably do it better than I do.

Kira: Sidi works close by so he'll come and help with dinner, bath time, bedtime.

Sidi: Men don't cook in Mali. It's a female thing, a woman thing. I would like to just show my kids that their father can cook too. It's a normal thing in Mali, everybody eats from one plate. Eating from one plate just always reminds me of home and always reminds me of my family.

Kira: We try to get them to go to bed at the same time. That means bedtime/bath time routine is also happening at the same time. I love bath time. With Wyatt, he's just laying relaxed in the water, and it's just such a calm, peaceful moment. And with Zeleigh, being in the bath she's so happy.

Sidi: The bath time is really important for me because it makes me close to my kids. After, when she get out of the bath, she goes to choose her favorite dress. Every time I put that clean outfit on her I just feel good as a dad.

Kira: At night, my parents would always read a book, and then sing us a song, and then we'd go to sleep. It was just very comforting for me from my parents to be sung to sleep.

Sidi: [Singing] I get the singing from her!

Kira: [Laughs]

Kira: My parents, they started doing karate before I was born. Karate was an important bonding time. So to be able to pass on that tradition and to have something that I can say, "You know, they're not just doing the karate, they're literally doing the same moves that their grandparents did."

Sidi: I always want my kids to grow up and see me cooking or doing my Malian things around home, so they can take some of them, if they want to keep up with it, showing to their kids, to the next generation, to pass on hand to hand. Because if I lost those things, I lost myself.

Kira: Blending our traditions, we celebrate Ramadan, we celebrate Hanukkah, we celebrate Christmas, and that's normal in our house. And we speak two languages, and we eat food from Mali and food from America, and that's normal.

Sidi: It's not an easy thing to do, because somehow you can't just bring all the traditions in your family all in one. But it's working for us so far.

What is dengue?

Dengue is an illness caused by a virus transmitted to people by certain mosquitoes. It's usually short-lived but symptoms can sometimes be severe or fatal. Dengue is one of a few mosquito-borne illnesses, along with Zika and chikungunya that can be problematic or even dangerous for pregnant women and babies.

Dengue is especially dangerous for pregnant women because they can transmit the virus to their baby during pregncy or during birth. This may result in stillbirth, low birth weight, or premature birth.

Babies infected with dengue are at higher risk for a severe case of the disease. See our article on how to protect your baby from dengue if you are travelling to a place where the illness is common.

Dengue rarely crops up in the United States but is a leading cause of illness and death in the tropics and subtropics. It sometimes surfaces in Hawaii (there was a dengue outbreak on the Big Island in 2015-2016) and is common in Puerto Rico and in many popular tourist destinations in Latin America, Southeast Asia, and the Pacific islands.

Symptoms of dengue

Symptoms commonly include a high fever, severe headache, severe pain behind the eyes, joint pain, muscle and bone pain, rash, and mild bleeding (usually from the nose or gums).

Some people develop a more severe illness known as dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF), which can be fatal if not diagnosed and treated promptly.

People who develop DHF may find they get worse after the fever declines. They may have persistent vomiting, severe abdominal pain, and difficulty breathing.

How to tell if you have dengue

If you're pregnant and think you're having symptoms of dengue, call your healthcare provider immediately. Early diagnosis and prompt treatment can substantially lower the risk of complications.

How dengue is treated

There is no medicine for dengue. Your provider will probably suggest treating the illness in these simple ways:

  • Get plenty of rest.
  • Drink lots of water to avoid dehydration.
  • Take acetaminophen to relieve fever and pain. (Don't take NSAIDS like ibuprofen or aspirin.)

If you feel worse in the first 24 hours after the fever declines -- for example, you start vomiting or have severe abdominal pain -- go the hospital or ER immediately.

If you develop DHF, you may be hospitalized and given fluid replacement therapy. When diagnosed early, DHF can be effectively treated this way.

How to protect yourself against dengue

There's no vaccine to prevent dengue. When traveling to countries where dengue or other viruses spread by mosquitoes have been reported, take these steps to avoid getting bitten:

  • Use insect repellent. (See our article on which insect repellents are safe during pregnancy.)
  • Wear loose cotton clothing that covers your arms and legs.
  • Stay in places that have air conditioning or have screens on windows and doors.
  • See our slideshow: 7 ways to protect yourself from mosquitoes

Week 28 of pregnancy - the list of things to do

It gives you a list of things to do during pregnancy, week by week! We help you with a list of essential things to do!

- it is time for your tummy to become a "model" for a few moments, as long as it takes her immortalization in a new pregnancy photo; you entered the third trimester, your tummy resembles a ball, but the fetus is only the size of a larger eggplant; it has perfectly developed lungs, so that, if it were born now, it could survive the extrauterine environment;

- you may notice a yellowish-white discharge from the breasts this week; it is the sign that your body is starting to produce milk for the baby's breastfeeding period; the secretion that now flows from the breasts is actually colostrum, also called "first milk"; it is advisable to use breast pads to avoid embarrassing times when your clothes are stained with colostrum;

- you will feel intensely the "physical movement" of the fetus in your belly; you are used to his movements, but do not be afraid if this week they become more vigorous than usual; the fetus begins to exercise new movements: it stretches, rolls, etc., and each of these "exercises" is intensely felt by your body; eat your tummy and talk to the baby, to help him calm down and give you some relief;

- prepare to face the wishes and requests of others to touch your tummy or to let them feel the baby's blows; if you are quite protective of your tummy and you are uncomfortable with the idea that foreign or surrounding people will touch it, then politely refuse them and go on; no one can criticize you for refusing someone to invade your personal territory or privacy;

- go to the doctor for a consultation from 28 weeks, during which the height of the uterine bottom will be measured again (should be between 28 and 31 cm); blood pressure and weight will also be monitored during this visit, and if the doctor deems it appropriate, he may also recommend performing the following tests: for anemia, diabetes, screening for anti Rh antibodies; it is the right time to seek medical advice about various symptoms or pain you are experiencing; if you are still in the doctor's office, set the next medical appointment for the 30th week of pregnancy;

- If you are going to give birth naturally, it is important to consider the idea of ​​pain management options during labor: whether you want epidural anesthesia or not, if you want other medications or alternative pain control therapies, the presence of a midwife, etc .; send your decisions to the doctor at the next appointment;

- depending on the value of your body weight recorded at the last medical check, adapt your diet and physical training; if you have exceeded the normal value, ask the doctor for advice on the daily caloric intake you should have during this period, to prevent fattening, but find out which foods are best to get these calories; it is time to reduce the "engines" of physical training, because the physical condition does not allow you to rigorously perform the exercises.

My breastfeeding story: Needed formula at first, then phased it out

My breastfeeding story: Needed formula at first, then phased it out

Name: Sheridan
Lives in: Swansea, Massachusetts
Breastfeeding experience: Caught off-guard by difficulties, but persisted and felt proud of what she accomplished
Main challenges: Preemie baby; had to rely on formula for a while
Breastfed for: 14 months

My story

I work at a hospital that actively promotes breastfeeding. As part of my job as a licensed dietitian, I read a 300-page manual on breastfeeding practices. So I thought I had it all figured out well before I had my son. Then Cameron was born a month early and transferred to the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). Everything I thought I knew went out the window.

The first sign things would go differently for us was after Cameron was handed over for skin-to-skin contact to initiate breastfeeding. He showed absolutely no interest. He didn't even search for the breast.

I knew nursing doesn't always happen right away. What worried me was that he wasn't breathing all that well either. That's when the doctors took him to the NICU. They checked his breathing, tested his blood sugar, took his temperature, and put him under a heat lamp while I rested.

About nine hours later I met with a lactation consultant and learned how to use the pump so I could feed Cameron my breast milk from a bottle, which they said might be easier for him. I reviewed the pumping process again with another expert when I visited him in the NICU. Both suggested I use a nipple shield, which can make it easier for preemies to latch on. We tried it and he latched on but had to work pretty hard to get anything. Apparently, this is often the case with babies who have respiratory issues. In hindsight I think the shield just made it harder for him.

After three days in the NICU, we left the hospital. He still had trouble nursing so I was feeding him the colostrum I was able to pump and supplementing it with formula.

It wasn't easy being home on my own. The word that comes to mind when I think of nursing him then? Combative. While trying to latch onto me, his arms flailed and he sometimes scratched me. After 10 to 15 minutes of this, my husband would take him and feed him formula while I pumped milk, which I'd then give him in a bottle. I basically just felt like, whatever it takes, let's make sure he's fed.

When he was a month old I finally just quit the nipple shield to see what would happen – and he latched! It took a couple of days, but I couldn't believe I'd kept up pumping for an entire month and now there was an end in sight!

Still it took time for me to feel confident that he didn't also need formula. I'd nurse him and, if he still cried, I'd top off a feeding with 2 or 3 ounces of formula. Eventually I learned to trust what my body was doing and, over time, decreased the amount of formula he was getting. By month three he was exclusively on breast milk.

I went back to work after 15 weeks and pumped two to three times a day during work hours. In the hospital I have the luxury of a pump room with hospital-grade pumps, lounge chairs, and a window view.

When Cameron was 12 months old, he was eating table food and I finally stopped pumping at work. I tried to continue breastfeeding at night but he didn't really show interest. He'd latch and then unlatch after a few minutes. By 14 months, he had weaned himself.

My biggest lesson learned

Be confident that your body really can do the job. Breastfeeding was the hardest thing I've ever done but I feel like I rocked it. It was so rewarding when he finally latched on.
