Types of birth control pills

In today’s world the men and women are much more worried about their sexual life. Not only that but also as the population is increasing day by day, the birth control pills are coming into the picture. Birth control pills are a synthetic form of the hormones progesterone and estrogen. They do not allow ovulation by maintaining more consistent hormone levels. Without a peak in estrogen, then, the ovary doesn’t get the signal to release an egg. If there are no eggs means there isn’t any possibility for fertilization and pregnancy. They also thicken cervical mucus so the sperm cannot reach the egg, and make the lining of the uterus unreceptive to the implantation of a fertilized egg.

Feeding Time: What to Eat and When

With all of the varying advice on feeding your baby, you may just want to breastfeed forever. Though you should always consult your doctor for the latest information on baby food, there are a few things you should expect in the first year.

When to introduce solids
Most doctors agree that solids should be introduced somewhere between four and six months. However, if you had an especially large baby at birth or a little boy with a big boy appetite, your doctor might recommend starting your baby on solid food as early as 3 months. Signs that your baby is ready for solid foods may include: doubling of her birth weight, an increased interest in food, and drinking more than 32 oz of milk in a day. Usually your baby will give you unmistakable signs that they are ready for food but always check with your doctor before introducing any solid food.
