Two languages at the same time?

Two languages at the same time?

Is it a good idea to teach my child two languages at the same time?

Some couples are made up of people who speak different languages, for example, the mother speaks Italian or English and the father speaks Spanish. It is not wrong to teach the child to speak two languages at the same time, it will most likely take a little longer for the child to speak but this will make it easier for him to learn more languages in his future. Many parents don’t know if it’s a good idea to teach children two languages from an early age, as we mentioned before, it’s not a problem to do so. It will be up to the parents. One advice that specialists give is that if the parents speak different languages, each one can speak to their child with their own mother tongue, so the baby will gradually learn the nuances of each language. If parents notice a delay in their child’s speech, it is not because of some problem but rather that the baby is doing double work in learning and that is why it takes longer.

Remember that a new language will make it easier for the child to learn another one. In the event that the parents live in the country where either of them is from, the reinforcement of one language will be more than the other due to the coexistence that the child has at school or with friends. If one of the languages is not usually a common or more regular language, it is not a problem. Children have the ability to learn everything because their minds are clean, clean from laziness, and clean from video games or anything that may distract the child.

Parents are the ones who must make the decision, after all, children who grow up with two languages, in the future it will be much easier for them to learn not only another language but whatever they need to learn.

Postpartum depression

Postpartum depression

Postpartum depression? win the battle

The birth of a baby to a mother could mean everything in the world, no matter if it is the first baby or the second or the fifth, it will always be a feeling that cannot be explained in words. But, there are cases where some moms do not feel the same as most, this is called “postpartum depression” and appears in the second or third week after the baby is born. If this postpartum depression is not addressed properly, it could become something more serious and take years to control. Postpartum depression is a well-known depressive disorder that occurs in the baby’s first year. It is a pathology that is not valued by most gynecologists, which is wrong since it is very common, more common than other problems such as gestational diabetes, premature birth, etc.

The symptoms of postpartum depression are usually fear, tiredness or lack of sleep, a feeling of not being able to take good care of the baby and the need to remove responsibility. Many doctors often confuse postpartum depression with a condition known as “baby blues,” which is very similar but only lasts 1 to 2 weeks and goes away. The factors that can affect the development of postpartum depression are the physical, psychological and social changes that originate in pregnancy.

The symptoms are:

● Anxiety
● Irritability
● Changes in appetite
● Feelings of guilt
● Lack of concentration
● Social isolation
● Low self-esteem
● Lack of sleep
● Tiredness
● Negative feelings towards the baby
● Fear of being alone with the baby
● Exaggerated concern for the baby or otherwise, disinterest

To prevent developing this pathology, the mother must be trained to the idea from the first month of pregnancy and begin to adapt to what her new life will be. In addition, family support is of the utmost importance, since they can give the mother that peace of mind that she will know how to do it well and that everything will be fine. Breastfeeding elevates your mood by stimulating the production of oxytocin.

If symptoms do not go away within 2 weeks or if they become more severe, the mother should seek help before it worsens and gets out of control. Men or fathers can also develop this pathology, so you must be aware as well. If you do not have these types of problems and you cannot wait to have your baby in your arms, then enjoy your pregnancy and do not lose that enthusiasm, which is what will help you not to develop this problem in the near future.

Yoga during pregnancy

Yoga during pregnancy

Yoga during pregnancy, is itm recommended or not?

Yoga is an exercise / discipline that originates from India and helps to harmonize the body and mind. Pregnancy is the period of time that involves physical, hormonal, metabolic and emotional changes in a woman’s life. Yoga practice during pregnancy is very beneficial for these reasons:

  • Improves breathing technique.
  • Maintains flexibility and improves muscle tone.
  • It allows us to know the organs involved in labor.
  • Manage anxiety and stress.

If you are pregnant and are interested in practicing yoga, I recommend that before doing so, you consult with your obstetrician. If you suffer from blood pressure or some other serious complication, yoga may not be right for you. But if you practice yoga before pregnancy, it is very likely that you can continue doing it during. Of course, in a way that doesn’t put your baby at risk. There is a type of yoga for pregnant women, which is called prenatal yoga and consists of certain postures that are ideal for pregnant women. They are more pleasant postures and movements that do not require as much effort, in addition to that the breathing is smoother.

Avoid completely the following postures:

  • Inverted
  • postures Postures that force the abdominal muscles
  • Postures that make breathing difficult
  • Postures that use only one foot
  • Back postures

As we mentioned before, try to consult first with the doctor who is monitoring your pregnancy about whether it is It is appropriate for you to practice these new movements.



What is the first thing the gynecologist does when you are pregnant?

Exactly! an ultrasound. In the 1950s, Dr. Ian Donald created the first ultrasound image of a fetus. Who would say this will evolve from 2D to 5D. Ultrasounds provide essential information to doctors and parents, as they allow you to see your baby from before birth. Also, in this way it can be observed if the baby has any complications or abnormalities.

This technique allows the inside of the body to be explored using ultrasound. The first is performed around week 12 vaginally and serves the purpose of:

  • To rule out that the pregnancy is outside the uterus (ectopic) or that there is a risk of miscarriage.
  • Define the getional age of the baby.
  • Measure the heart rate.
  • See if it is a multiple pregnancy.
  • Determine if there are problems with the cervix, ovaries, uterus or placenta.
  • Control possible morphological alterations.

The second is an abdominal ultrasound:

  • Here the development of the fetus is verified
  • Check the amount of amniotic fluid
  • Examine the movement of the baby
  • Identify the sex of the baby

Finally, the objective is:

  • Find out the position of the baby
  • Know the weight of the baby
  • Check that adequate levels of amniotic fluid are maintained.

Generally, this is done every month. Depending if your doctor asks for it. Drink a lot of water before your appointment to improve the sharpness of the image, such as some candy so that the baby is active, try to spread any type of cream on your belly and go to your appointment with comfortable clothes.

Let your child cry, see why ...

Let your child cry, see why ...

For parents, sometimes it is difficult to understand the behavior of children. As they grow older, they require more parental attention, and between household chores, work, and everything else, parents can become frustrated or stressed and explode when children cry or become more needy. In these cases, parents should avoid at all costs certain behaviors such as saying phrases to their children that they may later regret and that can damage the children emotionally and mentally. It is important to remember that when a child cries it is for some reason, crying is a way for human beings to vent or express themselves when words are missing.

In general, when children cry, parents often resort to phrases like “don’t cry” or “stop crying”, but the reality is that these words are not correct. Children’s emotions are something that parents should not suppress, because in this way children learn that crying is related to something bad and that it is something for which they should feel ashamed. This affects the self-esteem and emotional development that children will have in the future, growing up with insecurity, distrust and prejudice.


Parents, it is important that you make your children feel that they can vent freely to you. We leave you a list of words that parents usually use when children cry and that they should avoid saying them when this happens:

  • “Do not cry” Remember that crying is a way of expressing what you feel inside, instead of using this phrase, use a “Let’s find a solution together” or “cry if it is what you need to feel better”, “How can I help you?”

  • “Stop crying now!” With this we are ensuring that children do not vent and repress emotions. Empathy is the most important thing in these types of situations.

  • “I’m going to give you a reason to cry” Threatening children with these types of phrases causes intimidation, fear. Violence is unacceptable for any human being, especially children. In this way, they will be afraid to express themselves to you and will not trust that you can help them.

  • “Men do not cry” I really hate this phrase … Besides being unfair and harmful, it is a macho phrase. Men have every right to cry just like women, this does not make them less of a man. Crying has no gender.

  • “Everyone is watching you” So what? This will only create a feeling of shame every time they cry. Freedom of expression parents, remember.

  • “If you cry, I will not listen to you” WRONG! This is when children most need their parents, again, this will create insecurity and mistrust. When the child grows up, don’t complain that he doesn’t tell you anything.


I could go on and on but I think the message has been clear. Parents must understand that they are the refuge of their children and that it is very important that children know that they have their parents at all times.
