US Government Says Fight Childhood Obesity with Breastfeeding

Obesity is becoming a more serious problem in the United States and around the world, and many people are beginning to take notice. In the US, our first lady, Michelle Obama has been campaigning against childhood obesity with her “Let’s Move” program. The program aims to eliminate childhood obesity by 2030 by encouraging children to be more active and eat better, but also by ensuring that children have a wider selection of healthy eating choices.

Health Care Reform

International Breastfeeding Logo


We’ve been talking in the office this week about the Health Care Reform and the inclusion of rights for working, breastfeeding moms. Employers are to provide a ‘non-bathroom area’ in the workplace for the mom who needs a quiet, private place to pump breast milk. Regular (unpaid) breaks are also to be allowed until their baby turns 1 year of age.

We don’t currently have any breastfeeding moms at the Bebe au Lait offices, so we talked about previous places of employment and the provisions for this important time in a new mom’s life. Pleasantly, we seemed to agree that in our experience U.S, as well as U.K companies are way ahead of this law.

For more reading on this part of the Health Care Reform go here and for more reasons to breastfeed go here. And please send us any stories you have of breastfeeding/pumping in the office.

Lost in motherhood

Me and My Beautiful Baby Boy

My current life consists of diaper changing, breast feeding, and comforting a cranky infant. Alright, alright, it also includes baby coos, sweet smiles and nuzzles from an extremely cute two month old boy. So why can I only focus on what I can’t get done? How about I give you a little sample? I am now lousy at responding to my friends emails. I forget to RSVP to important events in my friends lives. I didn’t know my girlfriend had stopped working in October. I forgot to pay the mortgage, don’t worry they aren’t going to foreclose on my house, but I now lack the time to get the bill paid…and I use bill pay, so technically it is a click of the button. How is it possible that I haven’t done it yet? I honestly don’t know. These are just the trivial things I haven’t gotten to, and don’t get me started on my career that is also currently on hold with no definite time frame of when I am going back.

Belly Bars – Next Time I Promise To Share

A few weeks ago Ronnie and I met with Leslie S. Barber from Belly Bars (Nutra Bella). We’ve known each other for a while now – running into her and her business partner Meredith at various trade shows and such. It’s always nice to meet up with fellow entrepreneurs – sharing stories about how we got started – some funny, some unbelievable!
One of my good friends is very pregnant right now, so Leslie very kindly gave me some of their products so that I could pass them on to her. I’d like to say that they all made it safely to my friend, but something about the lovely packaging and the fact that they are healthy and delicious…well…in my defense, Belly Bar products are made for before, during and after pregnancy…I wonder if six years later counts??
Later this month we will be giving all of our online customers a chance to try the ‘Baby Needs Chocolate’ Belly Bar in our ‘No Tricks, Just Treats’ promotion. Stay tuned!
