Of all the milestones that babies reach during their first two years of life, talking is one of the most exciting. New parents can hardly wait to hear what their little ones have to say! In the meantime, there are a lot of questions. When do babies start talking? For that matter, what counts as talking? How long will you have to wait for your baby’s coos and babbles to turn into words?
- Babies communicate before they talk. As soon as they’re born, babies communicate with their parents and caregivers by crying. Soon, you’ll understand what your baby’s different cries mean, but this is only one way that babies let you know what they need. They grimace and squirm, and by about two months, babies start cooing and gurgling. By four months they babble and may even try to copy your sounds and respond to your speech, and as this back and forth increases, by about six months your baby may use particular sounds to respond to your questions. Six month old babies have refined their babbling, and use more m and b sounds, as well as squealing and blowing raspberries. By about nine months, your baby will probably be making a lot of “mamama” and “bababa” sounds, will look at you when you call his or her name, and will hold up arms to be held.
- Every baby is different. Generally, babies speak their first words between nine and 12 months of age. However, this is just a range, and babies develop at different rates. While it’s helpful to have an idea of the typical timeline, it’s also good to remember that your baby will do things on his or her own schedule.
- Toddlers develop speech quickly. Once they say those first words, things escalate quickly. By the end of their 12th month, babies can usually say a few words, like “mama” and “dada,” and can respond to short requests. By 18 months they can say several simple words, and by two years they’ll be able to string together short phrases. 18 to 24 month old babies learn new words every day, and by two years may know as many as 50 to 100 words! A three year old is likely to have a vocabulary of more than 200 words, and is beginning not only to speak in sentences but also to speak more clearly. At this stage, children begin to understand symbolic and abstract language, as well, and this development is furthered by imaginative play.
- You can facilitate language development. Talk to your baby, naming things during play, mealtime, and bath time. Use names, so that your baby begins to associate names with faces. Speak slowly and enunciate your words, and repeat words so that they’ll stick in your baby’s mind. Sing songs to your little ones, read books and nursery rhymes, and narrate your day together. Encourage your baby’s attempts at speech, and praise imitation. Listen to your little one, and respond to what’s being communicated.
- Know when to worry about speech delay. As long as your baby’s babbling is progressing, don’t worry too much about timing. However, if you suspect a problem, talk to your pediatrician. If language development seems to stop or regress, your baby is not babbling or gesturing, or words don’t begin to emerge by about 15 months, have your child screened for problems. A hearing test may be needed, or a visit to a speech-language pathologist. You might also want to consider developmental screening, to rule out autism spectrum disorder or cognitive disability, which can delay speech.

Are you about to become a parent? Congratulations! You’re about to enter one of the most exciting and overwhelming times of your life. It pays to get some guidance from people who have been there, so we’ve compiled some tips and advice from experienced parents to help you through those early days.
- Expect it to be challenging. Many people think that having a baby will just mean incorporating that new little person into their existing lifestyle, but this is rarely the case. The first year of parenting is a major adjustment, because having a baby means your life and schedule have to go revolve around the baby’s needs instead of yours. Even an easy baby requires a lot of maintenance, and you’ll spend most of your life feeding, changing, comforting, holding, rocking, and doing whatever else is required.
- Take naps. You’ll often be advised to sleep when the baby sleeps, and this is excellent advice. Babies don’t sleep very much, and you’ll find it difficult to care for a baby when you’re sleep deprived. It may be tempting to spend your baby’s nap time cleaning house or catching up on your favorite TV shows, but this is unwise. Let everything else go for a little while, and go ahead and nap when you can.
- Take a shower. When you’re a new parent, self-care tends to fall by the wayside. You may feel like you’re in a fog and suddenly realize that you haven’t had a shower in days. Don’t let this happen! Showering daily, even if it’s for a quick five minutes, can make you feel refreshed, which helps you stay on top of all the things you need to do.
- Take a walk.
- Don’t keep things too quiet. If you want your baby to be a good sleeper, don’t shut down the house while he or she is sleeping. Doing this will train your baby to be a light sleeper who wakes at every noise, and this is definitely not what you want.
- Do what works for you. Advice is wonderful, but too much advice can be overwhelming. Take a breath and trust your gut, doing what works for you and your baby. Breast-feed or bottle-feed, swaddle or don’t, use cloth diapers or disposable. As long as your baby is happy and healthy, keep doing what feels best for your family.
- Don’t be afraid to ask for help. It goes without saying that you and your partner should share in the responsibilities of parenting. Beyond that, there are probably many people in your life who will help if you just ask. While you’re in the survival mode of early parenting, accept offers of food, childcare, house cleaning, and anything else anyone in your life is willing to give.
- Enjoy it! While parenting is a lot of work, it’s also a lot of joy. Reveling in your amazing newborn will give way to delighting in your quickly growing child, and it will all pass much more quickly than you think. Take time to bond with your baby, celebrate each age and stage, and make mini-traditions that will create wonderful memories together. Be mindful of the moments, and spend time just enjoying your baby.

When it comes to pregnancy, women hear a lot about the negative impact of drinking alcohol. It’s commonly understood that women should cut down their drinking when they’re trying to conceive and stop drinking entirely once they become pregnant. What is less known is the effect alcohol has on a man’s fertility. How does alcohol affect your sperm health? Should men be concerned enough to cut back when trying to conceive a child?
- Alcohol definitely affects male fertility. Multiple studies back up this fact. This is because alcohol consumption impacts sperm health, and the quantity and quality of sperm determines how easy it will be to conceive. Drinking heavily can lower testosterone levels and raising estrogen levels, thereby reducing sperm production. Alcohol consumption can also cause early or decreased ejaculation and alter the size and movement of sperm. If you use drugs like marijuana or opioids with alcohol, you can further lower fertility. Alcohol can also affect your overall health, raising your risk of conditions like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer, liver disease, anxiety, and depression. It can diminish your libido, making it more difficult to conceive.
- How much you drink matters. The occasional drink won’t cause much damage, although even in moderate amounts, it can cause a loss of libido. However, heavy, consistent drinking can cause a major problem, as can binge drinking. A man who has five or more drinks is at risk of sperm damage, and having more than 14 mixed drinks in a week can affect sperm count and lower testosterone levels. It’s recommended that men have no more than four drinks in a day or 10 in a week, but one in four men drink more than this.
- The damage is reversible. This is great news! Even if you’ve been a heavy drinker, if you stop drinking, it will only take about three months for healthy sperm production to return. To reduce your drinking, try scheduling a few days each week that are entirely alcohol free. Set limits on yourself, and when you are drinking, alternate alcoholic beverages with non-alcoholic. Don’t drink without eating something, and limit how much alcohol you keep in the house. If you use alcohol to de-stress, consider finding other ways to manage your stress, like exercising or picking up a hobby.
- A healthy lifestyle promotes fertility. The same factors that promote health in other systems of the body are important for male fertility. If you’re trying to conceive a child, exercise regularly to boost your testosterone levels. Keep your cortisol levels down by managing your stress. Get plenty of sleep, and eat a nutrient-dense diet, talking to your doctor if you have questions about your nutritional needs.

Parenting is a roller coaster, rewarding yet frustrating, blissful yet infuriating. You love your children beyond all reason, yet sometimes being patient with them feels like an impossible task. If this sounds like you, you’re not alone. Learning to be more patient with your kids can be a difficult task, but it’s totally worth it. Recent research has found that children with parents who are supportive, nurturing, and, yes, patient, do better in school, are less likely to be depressed, cope more effectively with stress and adversity, and literally have more brain growth. If knowing the benefits of being more patient makes you want to work towards that goal, here are some tips to help you get there.
- Set yourself, and your children, up for success. Often, bad behavior from children is the result of unmet needs. Children who are tired, hungry, or overwhelmed are far more likely to act out than they normally would. You’ll have less cause for impatience if you work around your child’s needs and schedule. Don’t run errands at naptime or mealtime, and take care to pay attention to the meaning behind the behavior.
- Identify triggers. Do you tend to lose patience in the mornings, when everything is hectic, and your children fail to quickly get ready for the day? Get ready for the morning the night before, so that things will go more smoothly in the morning. Do tantrums from your child trigger you? Learn to listen to your children, getting down on their level so that you can look them in the eyes and repeat back key phrases, letting them know you understand. Redirect negative behavior before it gets out of hand.
- Take care of yourself so you can take care of your kids. Eat well, rest well, and take a time out when you need a break from the children. Sometimes, stepping out of the room will be enough to help you regroup, other times you will need to take a night off to feel refreshed and better able to cope. Just as your kids will be less likely to try your patience if their needs are met, you’ll be better able to maintain that patience if your needs are met. Try to keep things in perspective, understanding that your children’s brains are not fully formed and they’re still learning.
- Don’t hesitate to call for reinforcements. This could mean asking a friend or family member to keep the kids for a little while so that you can take a breather. It could also mean seeking help from a social worker or your child’s pediatrician. Therapy for your children can help mold their behavior; therapy for you can help you find coping mechanisms of your own.

Are you expecting a little one and determining how life will change when your bundle of joy arrives? With the rising cost of childcare, more parents are deciding to have one partner stay home with the kids. Traditionally, this has been the woman’s role, but more men are opting to be stay-at-home dads while moms go to work. Only you and your partner can decide what’s best, but here are the reasons and benefits behind being a stay-at-home dad.
Why Do Some Men Become Stay-at-Home Dads?
Fathers may stay at home with the little ones for many different reasons. Here are some factors that may apply to you:
- You want to improve your family’s financial stability, and you know your partner has better income opportunities than you do.
- You want to care for your family and be closer to your kids.
- You have a chronic illness, disability, or criminal record that keeps you from getting a job.
- You recently lost your job, and becoming a stay-at-home dad is a natural career change for you.
- You’re in a same-sex relationship, so it’s a stay-at-home dad situation, whether you or your partner choose to stay home.
Benefits of Being a Stay-at-Home Dad
Just like any job, there are certainly challenges to staying home with the kids. Still, here are the benefits that await you if you make this decision:
- Strengthen the bond with your kids: When you become the primary caregiver for your children, you can’t help but get to know them better. You’ll revel in the uniqueness of each child’s personality and be the first to know when their favorite color changes. This is a privilege most dads don’t get to enjoy.
- Be a positive male role model: Children who grow up with an involved father are more likely to develop into healthy, well-balanced adults than kids raised in homes with a “deadbeat dad.”
- Strengthen the relationship with your partner: A study of working moms and stay-at-home dads found that partners connected more when the man stayed home. This was especially true when their roles were reversed because each person gained a mutual understanding of the challenges of raising children.
- Help your children see beyond stereotypes: Simply by being a stay-at-home dad, you flip the traditional gender roles upside-down. This helps your children perceive masculinity, caregiving, and fatherhood as one and the same.
- Evaluate your career path: As your children reach school age, the opportunity to re-enter the workforce may become available. This might be your chance to go back to school, seek additional training, or start a new career in a higher-paying job.

Dr. Anthony P. Witham, president of the American Family Institute, coined the phrase, “Children spell love…T-I-M-E.” But if you’re like most parents, time is a resource you have very little to spare. You know spending quality time with your kids is vital for their health and happiness, but how can you possibly squeeze an extra hour or two out of your already jam-packed day? Just follow these tips.
- Integrate together time into your daily routine: Children love to help, so bring them along to the grocery store, post office, or other errands you have to run. Then, let them help you prepare dinner, bake cookies, or do chores. You can even do yoga stretches or go running together, which benefits you and your child’s health alike.
- Carve out 15 minutes in the morning: Can you get up 15 minutes early to give your child one-on-one attention before work? Maybe eat breakfast together or go for a quick walk around the block. 15 minutes might not sound like much, but it could make a world of difference to your child.
- Make bedtime stories a must: If you can squeeze more time out of your mornings, you can probably find another 15 minutes at bedtime to read a short story or a chapter of a book together.
- Schedule recurring dates: You might do weekly family movie nights, family game nights, or rotating one-on-one dates with each of your kids every Saturday. Whatever it is, put it on the calendar and schedule your busy life around it.
- Camp in the backyard: You may not have a whole weekend to spare for a family camping trip, but how about one evening? Your kids will love setting up tents in the backyard or even sleeping in the living room. Just a slight change of pace is all you need to make lasting memories together.
- Choose time with your child over time on your phone: You may think you have no free time, but track your phone usage, and you might discover you have more time to spare than you realized. Trade some of this “tech time” for one-on-one time with your kids.
- Prioritize family meals: Make an effort to eat at least one meal with your children every day. When you’re short on time, look for meals and snacks requiring very little preparation. Then, chat while you eat.
- Write notes: When together time just isn’t possible that day, write a message to your child and leave it in their lunch box, by their toothbrush, or on the fridge for them to find.

The average age for a baby to walk unassisted is about 12 months. Still, some babies take their first steps before nine months old, while others don’t reach this milestone until 18 months or older. So how can you tell when your baby is almost ready to walk? And can walking toys help your baby learn to walk at a younger age?
Signs Your Baby will Start Walking Soon
Babies must hit a few milestones before they’re ready to walk. These include:
- Pulling up into a standing position: In an attempt to change their vantage point, babies will grip furniture or hold onto someone to pull themselves up to standing. On average, babies learn this ability about four months before taking their first independent steps.
- Walking with support: At this stage, babies have the strength and coordination to shift their weight from one leg to another. They can walk while holding Mom or Dad’s hands and cruise along the edge of the sofa. Independent walking usually emerges about three months after babies start walking with support.
- Standing unassisted for several seconds: Many babies start walking within two to three months of standing on their own. But some will enthusiastically try and try again, taking their first surefooted steps within just a few days of learning to stand.
- What about crawling? Many parents are surprised to learn that crawling is not a required milestone for walking. In fact, some babies never crawl before they learn to walk.
Can Walking Toys Help Babies Walk Sooner?
Walking toys, also called locomotor toys, are designed to be pushed, pulled, or rolled along the ground. While these toys reward babies with fun sounds or motions as the toy moves, studies show that walking toys don’t motivate babies who aren’t yet walking to take their first steps. However, they do encourage babies who are already on the go to take a few more steps before coming to a halt.
So what about baby walkers? These rigid-framed devices on wheels with a seat suspended in the middle might sound like a shortcut for learning to walk. However, experts warn parents against them. Instead of being a helpful aid, walkers are a counterproductive crutch, encouraging infants to develop abnormal postures and gait patterns that may actually delay independent walking.
When to be Concerned About a Late Walker
A vast majority of children who still aren’t walking after their first birthday go on to develop normally. But if your baby still can’t walk independently by 18 months, it’s time to bring it up with your pediatrician.
Are you ready to welcome a baby into your home, who will eventually take their first wobbly steps with your help? If you had a vasectomy in your younger years, don’t fret—Dr. Joshua Green of the Center for Vasectomy Reversal can help you become a father through safe, effective vasectomy reversal.

Semen aspiration, also referred to as sperm retrieval, is a medical procedure used to collect sperm from the male reproductive tract body for use in fertility treatments. The sperm retrieved are used to fertilize the eggs of the female partner through in vitro fertilization (IVF). There are many different techniques that can be used for sperm retrieval, and the best method will depend on the individual’s situation.
There are several reasons why this procedure may be necessary, including sperm transport disorders, blockages in the reproductive tract, or a lack of sperm production. Read on to learn more about semen aspiration, why it’s done, and what to expect during the procedure.
What to Expect During Semen Aspiration Treatment
There are a few different methods of semen aspiration treatment. The sperm may be retrieved from the testicles, epididymis, or vas deferens. In some cases, the sperm may be obtained from the ejaculate.
Semen aspiration is typically performed under sedation or anesthesia. A needle is used to retrieve the sperm, which are then collected in a sterile container. The procedure usually takes less than 30 minutes.
In most cases, semen aspiration is successful in retrieving sperm for use in IVF. Semen aspiration is considered a low-risk fertility treatment and has a high success rate.
What Are the Risks of Semen Aspiration?
Although semen aspiration is generally safe and effective, there are some risks associated with the procedure.
First and foremost, there is a small risk of infection. The uterus is a sterile environment and introducing bacteria from the outside can lead to an infection. There is also a slight risk of puncturing the uterus, which can cause internal bleeding. In very rare cases, this can lead to serious health complications.
There is a very small risk that the needle used to aspirate the semen will damage the embryo. However, this is typically only a concern when aspiration is performed before implantation has occurred.
Overall, while there are some risks associated with semen aspiration, they are generally very rare and can be effectively mitigated with proper medical care. As such, semen aspiration remains a safe and effective way to collect genetic material. Risk can be minimized by working with an experienced medical professional.
Why is Sperm Retrieval Needed?
The most common reason for needing sperm retrieval is due to a blockage in the man’s reproductive tract. This blockage can occur at any point along the way, from the testicles to the opening of the penis. A blockage can be caused by an injury, surgery, or a birth defect.
In some cases, a man may have no sperm in his ejaculate at all. This is called azoospermia and can be caused by several factors, including infection, cancer, and other conditions.

Trying to get pregnant can be an exciting and nerve-wracking time. You may have many questions about your fertility and what you can do to increase your chances of conceiving. Unfortunately, there is a lot of misinformation out there about fertility. To help you separate fact from fiction, here are answers to some common myths about getting pregnant:
Myth 1: You’re Most Fertile in Your 20s
Fact: Your 20s are a great time to start trying for a baby, but your fertility actually starts to decline in your early 30s. By age 35, your chances of getting pregnant each month are only about 20 percent. So, if you’re in your mid-30s or older and hoping to conceive, don’t wait too long to start trying.
Myth 2: You Can’t Get Pregnant if You’re Overweight
Fact: It’s true that being overweight can make it more difficult to get pregnant, but it’s not impossible. In fact, many overweight women are able to conceive with no problem. The key is to maintain a healthy weight by eating a balanced diet and getting regular exercise. If you’re having trouble conceiving, talk to your doctor about ways to lose weight safely.
Myth 3: Stress Can Affect Your Fertility
Fact: There’s no evidence that stress can directly impact your fertility. However, stress can indirectly affect fertility by causing you to adopt unhealthy behaviors, like smoking or drinking alcohol. If you’re feeling stressed about getting pregnant, try to find healthy ways to cope, such as exercise or relaxation techniques.
Myth 4: You Can’t Get Pregnant if You Have PCOS
Fact: Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common condition that can make it difficult to get pregnant. However, it’s not impossible. With treatment, many women with PCOS are able to conceive. If you have PCOS and are having trouble getting pregnant, talk to your doctor about fertility treatments that may help.
Myth 5: You Can’t Get Pregnant if You Have Endometriosis
Fact: Endometriosis is a condition that can cause pain and Infertility. However, it’s important to note that not all women with endometriosis are infertile. In fact, many women with mild endometriosis are able to get pregnant with no problem. If you have endometriosis and are having trouble conceiving, talk to your doctor about fertility treatments that may help.
Myth 6: You Can’t Get Pregnant if You Have Fibroids
Fact: Fibroids are non-cancerous growths that can develop in the uterus. They are very common, and most women who have them will never experience any symptoms. However, in some cases, fibroids can cause Infertility. If you have fibroids and are having trouble conceiving, talk to your doctor about fertility treatments that may help.
Myth 7: You Can’t Get Pregnant if You Have a History of Miscarriage
Fact: A history of miscarriage can be heartbreaking, but it doesn’t mean you’ll never be able to have a baby. In fact, most women who have had a miscarriage go on to have a healthy pregnancy. If you’ve had a miscarriage and are hoping to conceive again, talk to your doctor about ways to reduce your risk of miscarrying.
Myth 8: Infertility is Reversible in Every Case
Fact: While there are some cases of infertility that can be reversed, such as blocked fallopian tubes, many other causes of infertility are not reversible. However, that doesn’t mean you’ll never be able to have a baby. There are many fertility treatments available that can help you conceive, even if you have a condition that is not reversible.
Myth 9: Overall Health Doesn’t Connect with Your Fertility
Fact: Your overall health does play a role in your fertility. Conditions like obesity, diabetes, and high blood pressure can all impact your ability to get pregnant. That’s why it’s so important to maintain a healthy lifestyle if you’re hoping to conceive. Eating a nutritious diet, getting regular exercise, and managing stress can all help improve your fertility.
Myth 10: IVF is Too Expensive to Consider
Fact: In vitro fertilization (IVF) is one of the most expensive fertility treatments available. However, it’s also one of the most successful. If you’re struggling to conceive, IVF may be an option worth considering. There are many financing options available that can make IVF more affordable. Talk to your doctor about whether IVF is right for you.
