I am not sure how many of you listen to Robb Wolf’s Podcast or follow Talk To Me Johnnie daily, but just a personal update from the OC…my wife and I are expecting twins in two weeks and things have been hectic to say the least.
The thought of having children is stressful enough without actually going through with it. And as the little ones approach, it grows exponentially.
Good thing there have been a few resources my wife and I leaned on as D-Day approaches. These include a large volume of baby books dealing with everything from sleeping to exercise and friends and family. My mom and dad raised three of us and my brother has two great kids, and he and his wife have been a wonderful resource for us as the big day approaches. I also have some pretty sharp friends like Robb and Mat, that have been great in answering an endless stream of questions and concerns.
One friend in particular, Chris Kresser, has a program called the Healthy Baby Code. The goal of the Healthy Baby Code is to educate parents on proper nutrition for them and their kids. And proper nutrition becomes vital when you are eating for two, and even more so, when you are eating for three!
Chris is a practitioner of integrative medicine and a graduate of UC Berkeley. He first jumped on the scene in 2008 with his blog, The Healthy Skeptic. The blog dispelled many common myths propagated by the media and medical establishment.
The Healthy Baby Code is a program designed to promote fertility in couples wanting to conceive and aids in pregnancy nutrition. Since we are fortunate enough to follow many of the nutritional guidelines that Chris recommends, my focus has been on the nutritional recommendations for newborns. Those first months of life will set the tone for lifelong intelligence and health, and his guidance has been invaluable to my family.
There is so much information on the Internet concerning pregnancy, fertility and what to feed your baby, I had no idea where to start. What has been so valuable about Chris’s program, is the simple, easy to follow videos, study guides and cheat sheets.
If you are thinking about trying to get pregnant, currently pregnant or breastfeeding, this program is for you.
