The other day I was contributing to a long list of congratulatory responses for a friend who posted a picture of her new family of four. After I posted my comment, I skimmed some of the other congratulatory remarks until I came upon one that I still can’t stop thinking about. It read: "Congratulations. A rich man’s family!"
The other posts commented on how cute the baby is, how adorable the big sister looks, and how a new baby is a blessing, but this comment focused solely on the baby’s gender. Since a baby boy was born, and now the family has a child from each gender, they are deemed rich.
For a moment after reading the comment, I had to stop myself from riding the rollercoaster of thoughts tumbling through my head. I began to wonder why a family with a boy and a girl is seen to be richer than a family with children of the same gender, or even families with more than two children.
Regardless of its original intent, the saying does create a type of competition between families, leading you to feel that you are not as rich as those that have a son and a daughter. As a competitive person by nature, this notion lights a fire in me. I had heard the saying before, but those words were never said to me after any of the births of my three sons.
Each one came out happy, healthy, and loveable, but nobody ever used the adjective “rich” when describing my ever-growing family. In fact, it was quite the opposite; friends and family constantly commented on the high cost of having children and that we would never be rich after paying for clothes, sports, college, etc!
Days after reading that initial remark, I can’t stop wondering what makes a family with a boy and a girl "rich?" The internet gives many different explanations for the saying, including the idea that in an agrarian society the boy would happily take over his father’s land and inheritance while the daughter would eventually provide grandchildren and help the family prosper. Therefore, the stereotypical gender roles are equally balanced, with the son taking control of the finances and the daughter continuing to provide in the home.
When I asked my mom for her interpretation, she gave a very practical answer. She seems to think the saying comes from the idea that only a wealthy family could provide new clothes for both the son and the daughter, since they will not be able to share clothes between siblings. There may be some validity in this interpretation, since passing down clothes within my boy tribe definitely has its perks!
Nevertheless, the saying is outdated and certainly doesn’t relate to today’s modern family that constantly defies any traditional, antiquated set of values.
Just because my family does not fit the stereotypical mold we aren't are any less rich in tradition, spirit, and love. At the end of the day, there's no competition when it comes to gender in the family, especially since each child is a blessing and gender is not something we can choose.
When your little one (or your many children) gives you an unsolicited kiss, takes your hand in his, or just nuzzles up next to you, the gender lines blur and the individual miracle that you created and helped to bring into this world is all that you need to enrich your soul.

Cystic fibrosis in babies
What is cystic fibrosis?
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a life-threatening genetic disease. A child with CF has a faulty gene that affects the movement of sodium chloride (salt) in and out of certain cells.
The result is thick, heavy, sticky mucus; salty sweat; and thickened digestive juices. The thick mucus secretions can clog the lungs, making a child with CF very prone to breathing difficulties, lung infections (the mucus provides a rich environment for bacteria), and, eventually, severe lung damage. And when thickened digestive fluids from the child's pancreas can't get to the small intestine to break down and absorb nutrients from the food she eats, she may also have digestive and growth problems.
What are the signs and symptoms of cystic fibrosis in babies?
Fifteen to 20 percent of newborn babies with cystic fibrosis have something called meconium ileus at birth. This means their small intestine is obstructed with meconium, the seaweed-green substance that comes out in a baby's first poop. Sometimes the intestine will become twisted or not develop properly as a result. The meconium can also obstruct the large intestine, in which case the baby won't have a bowel movement for one or two days after birth.
Other babies with CF are fine at birth but then develop problems breathing or can't seem to put on weight in their first four to six weeks. Poor growth is one of the first signs of CF. Parents may also notice a nagging cough and wheezing.
Coughing and wheezing are hardly unique to children with CF, of course. These symptoms could be caused by viral bronchiolitis (an inflammation of the small breathing tubes), asthma, pneumonia, or even a dusty, smoky environment. Each of these conditions is far more common than any genetic disease.
Still, cystic fibrosis is the most common life-shortening genetic disease among people of Northern European descent. Other symptoms include salty skin, a big appetite with no weight gain, and large, greasy stools.
Sometimes the condition doesn't become apparent until a child has had a series of repeated lung infections or severe growth problems. If your baby has any of these symptoms, talk with his doctor.
Cystic fibrosis can't be cured. But there are new treatments that can not only prolong a child's life but may also help make that life more normal. And the earlier CF is diagnosed, the more effective those therapies will be.
How common is cystic fibrosis?
The chances of your baby having CF are about 1 in 3,000 if your baby is Caucasian, 1 in 9,000 if she's Hispanic, 1 in 11,000 if she's Native American, 1 in 15,000 if she's of African heritage, and 1 in 30,000 if she's Asian American.
Babies get cystic fibrosis when they inherit one defective CF gene from their mother and another from their father. (More than 10 million Americans carry the CF gene – most without knowing it.) Children with the disease are usually diagnosed before the age of 2, but about 10 percent of cases go undetected until adulthood.
How can I find out whether my baby has CF?
Newborn babies in the United States (and in many countries worldwide) are routinely tested for CF. A small spot of blood is taken from the baby's heel and tested for a protein that is higher in babies with CF. If the result is too high, a further test is done to look for the most common mutations that cause CF.
Newborn screening isn't 100 percent accurate. Rarely, a baby who has CF will be missed by this test. But more commonly a baby who does not have CF will be referred for a more definitive test (a sweat test) to make sure he doesn't have the disease.
If there's any reason to suspect that your baby might have CF – because of symptoms, a newborn screening test, or because you know it runs in the family – the doctor will perform a sweat test.
The sweat test is quick and painless: A drug called pilocarpine stimulates a spot on the arm to sweat. The doctor places a piece of filter paper on the area to absorb the sweat and then tests its sodium and chloride content. Higher-than-normal levels strongly suggest cystic fibrosis. A family history of CF and other tests, such as a chest X-ray and blood or saliva genetic tests, may add to the evidence.
Genetic testing can determine whether a couple planning a pregnancy needs to be concerned about cystic fibrosis. Both parents would have to be carriers of the CF gene for the baby to have a risk of being born with the disease. Most ob-gyns offer this testing to expectant parents. If the test comes back positive, the couple would be referred to a genetic counselor. However, there are several thousand DNA mutations that can cause CF, and most ob-gyns test for only the most common 30 or 40 of these. So it's possible to be told you aren't a CF carrier when in fact you are.
How is the disease treated?
Babies and children with cystic fibrosis need ongoing medical care. This is best provided at a specialized CF center with a team of doctors, nurses, and others who have expertise in the disease. Symptoms vary greatly from child to child, even when they are siblings with the same genetic defect. Often symptoms come and go – they may be relatively mild or frighteningly severe.
The vast majority of young children with CF can be treated as outpatients, but they need to be seen frequently to make sure the disease is being treated properly. At each visit a sputum (saliva or mucus) sample is taken to help determine which germs are causing lung infections. Occasionally, if symptoms flare up, the child has to be admitted to the hospital to get intravenous antibiotics.
If your baby has CF, she should receive routine childhood vaccines against such common illnesses as Hib and pertussis, as well as an annual flu shot (once she's six months old).
Most kids with CF are also given prescription medications, including antibiotics to treat infection, medicines that help break up mucus in the lungs, and drugs that reduce the inflammation that causes lung destruction. Each child responds best to a different combination of physical and drug therapies, and it's the job of the doctors and the parents to find the right mix. Parents play an important role by watching how their child responds to different drugs.
Researchers are working on other treatment options as well, including gene therapy (to replace the gene that causes the disease), drugs that help move salt in and out of the cells properly, and new drugs to prevent and treat infections.
To loosen mucus in your baby's lungs, the doctor will probably show you how to thump your baby's chest with a cupped hand. You may need to do this a couple of times each day for about 30 minutes each time. There are also electric devices – like a chest clapper and a vibrating vest – that can perform this task.
Because the disease usually gums up the pancreas, your baby will need help with her digestion as well. Without easy access to pancreatic enzymes, the small intestine has trouble breaking down food, especially fat, leaving children with CF undernourished and hungry. Much of what they eat passes through their body without being absorbed.
The doctor may decide that your baby needs to take a pancreatic enzyme supplement with every meal to help her body absorb the food she eats. (You'll need to open the capsule and mix the tiny beads with a little baby food.) You'll also want to encourage your baby to eat as frequently as possible and give her any nutritional supplements the doctor recommends.
Proper nutrition is vital because a child who is otherwise strong, healthy, and well nourished gives all the CF therapies a better chance to provide some relief. Your baby's doctor will determine exactly which supplements – and how much of them – your baby needs to take.
The good news is that, in many cases, babies with CF can grow to lead nearly normal lives, going to school with everyone else, playing on the playground, and being a kid, even if the adults around her are being more vigilant. The prospects for children with cystic fibrosis keep getting better: Several decades ago most babies with CF died by their teens. Today, the life expectancy of a child born with cystic fibrosis is about 37 years.

Mental disorders that preeclampsia can cause in the baby
All women want a healthy, happy and safe pregnancy, but in some cases a complication called preeclampsia can occur after 20 weeks of gestation, which is mainly characterized by the pregnant woman having high blood pressure (arterial hypertension), which it can have serious, even fatal, consequences for mother and child. In this article we will focus on the mental disorders that preeclampsia can cause in the baby.
Preeclampsia can occur in pregnant women who have never suffered from tension, but during pregnancy they begin to suffer from blood pressure figures above normal (greater than 120/80), accompanied by edema of the lower limbs (swollen feet and legs) and fluid retention in other parts of the body. Likewise, when performing a urine test, the presence of proteins in it, called proteinuria, can be observed, which tells us about damage to the kidneys caused by hypertension itself.
High blood pressure can also affect your liver, brain and mainly the placenta, which can lead to a lack of oxygen and nutrient supply to the fetus. and if it is not corrected in time, it can produce a detachment of the placenta (it detaches from the wall of the uterus), unfortunately ending in premature delivery or fetal death.
If you are pregnant and you begin to have frequent or persistent headaches, photophobia or intolerance to light, blurred vision, nausea, vomiting, tiredness or fatigue, discomfort to urinate and, in small amounts and fluid retention (swelling), you should go as soon as possible to your control with the gynecologist.
If the diagnosis is preeclampsia, because you also have high blood pressure, you will be prescribed oral or intravenous medical treatment, a low-sodium diet (low in salt), rest and continuous monitoring, which you must comply with to the letter.
If the mother overcomes pre-eclampsia and manages to have her baby, there may be a 66% chance that her child's mental health is affected, which was proven in a study conducted by the University of Helsinki (Finland).
The study carried out by this University was published in the journal 'Hypertension' and was based on the follow-up of 4,743 pairs of mothers and children where a association of mothers who suffered from chronic gestational hypertension, preeclampsia or eclampsia (with seizures) and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder in their children, better known with the acronym ADHD. Preeclampsia is also related to other mental disorders such as autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and schizophrenia.
In the study they also concluded that when preeclampsia evolves into eclampsia, which is as explained by the Spanish Association of Pediatrics in their report Preeclampsia, eclampsia and Hellp syndrome, 'when the pregnant woman has uncontrolled very high blood pressure and can reach to convulse ', the baby's chances of suffering from these mental disorders are doubled. Likewise, within the research study, they observed that Pathologies such as gestational diabetes and obesity also influence the appearance of mental disorders in babies.
One of the researchers, a participant in the study, Marius Lathi-Pelkinen, stated that these predisposing effects can be extended to any pathology or psychological disorder that the future baby may have.
And the conclusion of the study, based on the results obtained, leads the researchers to confirm that if preventive measures are taken or the necessary treatments are carried out so that the pregnant woman does not develop any of these pathologies (high blood pressure, obesity and diabetes), You can improve the well-being of both the mother and the child and thus avoid the mental disorders that can affect it.
Broadly speaking, preeclampsia can lead to kidney damage, liver damage, brain injury (CVA), bleeding disorders, pulmonary edema, seizures (eclampsia), and even death. Everything will depend on the type of preeclampsia that the pregnant woman suffers.
In milder or uncomplicated cases, high blood pressure indices will be reduced six months after giving birth and, during this time, it is necessary to have a control by the midwife, gynecologist or head doctor .
Blood flow must also be controlled as they may be more prone to ischemic heart disease and, consequently, heart attacks or strokes. In turn, the doctor will check all the organs that could be affected such as kidneys, lungs or liver.

When to take your child to the ER for enterovirus
Enterovirus is a viral disease that does not usually have too many problems. But sometimes, the symptoms get complicated.
At what point should we take the child to the emergency room from a hospital for this disease?
The warning symptoms for enterovirus in children are striking symptoms that usually develop relatively acutely in a feverish and sick child:
1. Instability while walking (separate the legs so as not to fall or go 'sideways', like a drunk person).
2. Tremors, jerking or strange movements of the limbs.
3. Squint (squinting the eyes either inward or looking one way and the other to the other) or rapid movements of both eyes, either horizontally or vertically (nystagmus) or any other strange movement of the eye muscles (for example , staring up or staring). If the child comments that sees double It is also a symptom to consult urgently.
4. General decline and / or excessive drowsiness with difficulty in waking up the child in a child in whom normally they do not usually have difficulties in doing so (there are children who really find it difficult to 'get out' from a nap; that is why we must know our children well ... but if you have any questions, ask).
5. More or less sudden difficulty speaking or doing it in a confused way and locking the tongue (dysarthria) in a child who already spoke well.
6. Difficulty to swallow with or without exaggerated drooling and irritability. This can happen due to affectation of the pharyngeal muscles that control 'swallowing', since the signal from an important part of the brain that is affected by the virus does not reach them 'well'. This situation is very different from what happens very commonly in children with 'angina' in whom there is also fever and difficulty swallowing.
7. Lack of strength in the legs in such a way that the child (who was already walking) falls to one side or is unable to walk; the cause would be similar to that described in the previous point. If the child is small and tired, it can be difficult to assess but then other symptoms such as fever, general condition, etc. must be assessed, in addition to being able to consult the pediatrician who will surely help you in any case if there are doubts. Lack of strength must also be considered in the arms or trunk.
8. Difficulty breathing established relatively abruptly (in fact, enterovirus D68 is better known for primarily attacking the respiratory system). In some cases, the difficulty coughing. In immunocompromised children, asthmatics or with heart disease, conditions of this type could be more serious, so we must be even more vigilant.
9. Heart rhythm disturbances: striking tachycardia or bradycardia (sudden acceleration or slowing of the heartbeat) in a feverish context (obviously a healthy child jumping is normal for tachycardia). Symptoms with arrhythmias have also been described.
10. Severe headache and / or neck stiffness (meningism); with or without repeated vomiting and with or without conspicuous rejection of light (photophobia).
11. In children with a fever who are not yet walking, intense and manifest irritability that does not calm in the mother's arms, could also be a worrying symptom.
12. Deviation of the mouth to one side and one eye more closed than the other (Facial paralysis)
These symptoms are not exclusive to enterovirus involvement that affects the nervous system, but can also occur in other types of pathologies (among others, brain tumors or major head injuries).
