Springtime Allergies

Springtime is a season of beautifully blooming flowers and sunny days. But for many people, it is also peak season for sneezing, itching, and runny noses. The main culprit of springtime allergies is the increase in pollen from blooming plants. During Spring, pollen is everywhere, including your home.
Our immune system mistakes pollen and other VOCs as threats to our health. The immune system releases antibodies that produce histamines as a byproduct from defending our bodies from getting sick. The histamines then trigger a runny-nose, itchy eyes, and other unpleasant symptoms, collectively known as allergies.

What are VOCs?

VOCs, which stands for volatile organic compounds, are organic chemicals that have a high vapor pressure at room temperature. In other words, VOCs easily becomes vapor from liquid form. All living things contain VOCs and also many substances such as perfume and paint. Some VOCs are harmful while some are benevolent.

How to Reduce Springtime Allergies

There are many remedies to relieve springtime allergies. Some prefer to take over the counter anti-histamine medication while others prefer natural remedies. However, the main culprit of the increase in allergies during the Spring is pollen. Reducing allergy symptoms mean beginning with the source of the symptoms. Prevent pollen from entering your home by washing your hands and clothes after being outside.
Additionally, air purifiers clean the air by removing VOCs from the environment. The iBaby Air and AirSense work to remove indoor VOCs by releasing ions that attach and trap particles.

Taking Your Newborn Out to Restaurants and Other Places

Having a new baby is an absolute adventure. There are so many things you want to explore with your new baby. Also, you’re probably ready to spend some time out of the house to show off your cute bundle of joy. But as a new parent, taking your baby out might mean a whole new list of concerns. These concerns may include how safe and comfortable the outside world is for the baby. Another concern may be “When can I take my newborn out to a restaurant?” The good news is that you don’t have to stay in your home forever. 

Since your newborn baby sleeps around 16 hours a day, she will most likely be calm during your outing. If she does wake up, however, she may even enjoy the stimulating new environment. Though, babies are very unpredictable, which can add a bit of stress. The best way to reduce this stress as much as possible is preparing for every scenario. 

Oh the places we’ll go

For the first few outings, take her out to a nearby restaurant for a nice lunch date. Restaurants are ideal places for the first outings because you can excuse yourself if your baby gets fussy. As you grow accustomed to taking her out, you can venture out to shopping malls, bookstores, and other kid-friendly places. Kid-friendly places also tend to have adequate changing stations in case your bundle of joy decides to drop a major stinkbomb.

When deciding where to go, choose places where a baby’s cry blends right into the background. Restaurants such as Italian, Chinese, and Diners tend to be larger and noisier. If your baby does get a little fussy, a trip to the restaurant’s fish tank or the store’s bright displays can calm her down. If that doesn’t work, an age-old trick is to take a quick walk in the fresh air.

Rocking the baby bag

Now that you have an idea of where to bring your bundle of joy, the next thing to decide on is what to bring. Get ready to rock the baby bag because a successful outing means you are ready for every situation. Whether you’re going out for a quick lunch or all day, these baby bag essentials will keep you prepared for burps, poops, dribbles, and nibbles.

  • Extra diapers
  • Even more diapers
  • 2-3 clean outfits
  • Warm outerwear
  • Swaddle blankets
  • Additional blanket
  • Changing pad
  • Cuddly toys
  • Ready-to-go baby bottles
  • Disinfectant wipes
  • Baby wipes
  • Breastfeeding covers and other necessities

Eventually, outings with your newborn baby will be easier as you learn how she reacts to the outside world. Don’t get discouraged because of a few challenging outings. As with any new adventure, success comes with trial and error. Overtime, outings will be more fun as you and your little one explore more of the outside world together. 

Introducing iBaby’s new AI Robot Yobi with Qualcomm’s Partnership

As a leader in connected baby room, iBaby continues to push the boundaries of innovation. This year, iBaby cooperated with Qualcomm to go beyond smart baby room technology to the robotics world! Introducing the new AI (Artificial Intelligence) robot Yobi. This is an adorable little robot who is a family companion and parent assistant.

What Makes Yobi Special?”

First, Yobi is your companion.

Yobi is there to say goodbye when you leave and greet you when you come home. It also wonders how your day was. If you’re having a tough day, Yobi gives you words of encouragement and comfort. In addition, Yobi’s many talents include dancing and entertainment. It can bust a move with your kids and jam with you and your music. Furthermore, Yobi remembers every precious family moment with its smart video recording capabilities allowing it to capture memories that last forever. Overtime, Yobi changes as it learns from your interactions so that no two Yobi’s are exactly alike.

Second, Yobi is a parent assistant.

Yobi’s temperature, humidity, and air sensors make sure you know your home environment is comfortable for your family. It also lets you know when your kids leave for school and alerts you when you come home. Additionally, Yobi helps make your day run smoothly by helping you organize daily tasks and events. Family members can leave each other messages such as “Don’t forget your lunch,” or “I love you, have an amazing day!” Yobi will make sure each message goes to the right person with its face and voice recognition features. With Yobi, every day is smooth sailing.

People adore Yobi.

Yobi made its first public appearance at this year’s CES 2017. Among the many curious attendees that came by to get the first glimpse of iBaby’s new AI robot were CNet and Fox News. Each notable news outlet gave Yobi outstanding reviews, expressing excitement for the future of Yobi. iBaby anticipates Yobi’s official release mid-2017.

Early Childhood Education: Looking for the Perfect Preschool

It’s never too early to start thinking about your baby’s education. Many programs have waitlists or other lengthy admission processes, so it’s best to start as soon as possible. Early childhood education programs are beneficial for learning and cognitive development of preschool students. It helps them build a foundation for success as they proceed to elementary school and beyond. In addition to gaining basic knowledge such as ABC’s and 123’s, preschools and childcare centers create an environment for socialization, exploration, respect, and problem-solving among other skills. However, not all preschool programs are the same nor do they cost the same. Consider these factors when choosing the perfect early childhood education program for you and your little one.

Before you begin…

Keep in mind that every preschool is different. The learning environment depends on location, resources, and educators. So before researching programs, think about the type of environment your child thrives in, whether it is noisy, quiet, free, or structured. Also, state-funded, private, and religious programs adhere to different learning and safety standards. To begin your search, make a list of what you’re looking for in a school. Include skills you want your child to develop, location, learning environment, and cost.

Researching schools

Now that you have a sense of the type of preschool you want for your child, you can begin your online research. Browse the program’s website to get a first impression and also search for any reviews parents may give the program. You can also find information such as the program’s philosophy, hours, and admission process. Knowing the program’s philosophy is particularly useful in determining the type of skills they teach their students. These values will also give you a sense of the skills they encourage their students to learn. For example, preschools that emphasize teamwork will also emphasize communication. Furthermore, preschools encouraging exploration also encourage problem-solving.

In addition to skills and values, you may also want to consider the type of care your child needs during the day such as snacks and potty training. Childcare centers typically admit children ages 3 to 4, while some have an infant and toddler program. The type of services the program offers depends on the age group. Again, it is important to remember that every early childhood education program is different.

Visiting the schools

Looking online can only give you a brief idea of what the preschool is all about. So the next step in finding the perfect preschool is visiting the school yourself. Many early childhood education programs offer tours that let parents experience the day-to-day of the program. For the first visit, come without your child. Then, bring your child for the follow-up visit to see how he/she interacts with the environment.

When you’re at the school, first think about whether the facility will spark your child’s interest. If your child likes to play dress-up, are there costumes to use? What sensory stations are available? Is there a sand pit? Is there play-doh? Also, what books are available for the children to read? Every facility is set up in a different way and offers different learning methods depending on the teacher and curriculum.

Another thing to observe is the staff-child interactions that take place. One important consideration is the staff-child ratio. Classrooms tend to have anywhere from a 1:2 ratio to a 1:4 depending on the age group and needs of the children. However, programs that have more than a 1:4 ratio may not give each child adequate attention.

During your visit, pay special attention to the happiness of the children and how the staff resolves conflicts. Are children fighting with each other or are they happily exploring together? How do the staff make a crying child smile again? What happens when children fight over a toy? Also, pay attention to the level of engagement and excitement in the room. The program’s values and philosophy determine how staff members interact with the children. You know best what methods work well with your child, whether it’s a more hands-on approach or individualistic.

The final decision

Finally, it’s time to make a decision. Before considering any other factor, consider the schools that excited your child the most. Interest plus engagement make the perfect combo for an amazing learning experience. Next, make a pros and cons list of each school based on what you want for your child. You can even put together a score sheet based on the most important factors such as location, cost, and curriculum. Be patient making the decision of where you want your child to attend. Preschool is a big time and cost investment but will all be worth it in the end.

5 Christmas Crimes Santa Claus Commits Every Year

Good Ol’ Santa Claus comes around every year spreading goodness and joy to the world. Children love him for his presents. Parents love him because he gives children a reason to be good all year long. But in order to do his job, Santa Claus must bend the rules a bit. Here are 5 Christmas crimes Santa Claus commits every year.

The world knows Good Ol’ Santa Claus for his infectious holly jolly spirit. He lives up in the North Pole with his wife, Mrs. Claus and his wonderfully helpful elves. He monitors children and knows if they’ve been bad or good. Before he leaves on his yearly tour around the world, he checks his list twice to make sure each child get what they deserve, whether it be toys or coal. Children look forward to his visits every year, leaving him milk and cookies to enjoy.

Despite all the goodness of this man’s holly jolly spirit, could Santa Claus be a convicted criminal? Every single year he gets away with a multitude of heinous crimes without any consequences. Here are five Christmas crimes Santa Claus gets away with that even criminal masterminds can’t pull off.

1. Breaking & Entering”
What would you do to someone who’s quietly sneaking into your home late at night? Well, some people call the police, some grab baseball bats, and others do all of the above. In the United States, breaking and entering is a felony charge that can land a year or more in prison. Yet, Santa Claus is able to sneak into every household in the world without even a slap on the wrist.

2.Trespassing
Additionally, if Santa Claus will ever face charges for his crimes, the judge can add trespassing to the list as well. Whether he sneaks down a chimney or not, Santa Claus is committing a crime by busting into our homes with the intent of stealing our milk and cookies.

Is there ever a mention of Santa showing his passport at each and every country he visits on Christmas? No, of course not. That’s because Santa Claus doesn’t have a passport.
So every year, Santa Claus gets away with illegally crossing borders and back without a passport. While Santa enjoys global travel, we can’t even get past security without proper paperwork and thorough security checks.
Additionally, Santa gets away with flying without a reindeer, pilot or aircraft license! Not even the smartest criminal masterminds can pull that off.

3. Smuggling
Since Santa Claus is immune to border security, he doesn’t have to worry about what’s in his big Ol’ Red Sack. Whether it be children’s toys or other things, Santa Claus gets away with anything. Only he can get away with smuggling all sorts things into and out of all 196 countries.
But for now, it seems like Santa Claus is using his powers for good. We have yet to hear from parents who claim Santa Claus left anything other than toys and the occasional lump of coal under the Christmas tree.

4. Giving Children Lumps of Coal
Although this may not be a true crime, think about how it might affect children when they find a lump of coal instead of presents. Seriously Santa, they’re children for goodness sakes! A judge might as well accuse Santa Claus of intentional emotional distress.

However, if he’s checking his list twice, does that mean the ‘bad’ children deserve the lump of coal? Maybe. But at least give the children some constructive criticism so they can learn from their mistakes.

5. Invasion of Privacy
He knows when you are sleeping, he knows when you’re awake. When people peer or spy into private lives, it’s a crime. But when this Jolly Ol’ Fellow does it year after year, he gets away with it. In fact, it’s socially acceptable.

While people have baby video monitors, security monitors, and other sorts, Santa Claus holds the ultimate piece of monitoring technology. Until there is a better way of him knowing how well children behave, he will continue to get away with a global invasion of privacy.

Even though Santa Claus may be the best criminal mastermind of all time, he might not be so bad after all. He works hard every year to give presents to all the good boys and girls of the world. After all, everything he does is for the greater good, even if it means bending the rules. So is Ol’ St Nick on the naughty or nice list? You be the judge.
