4 Important Things That You Would Never Thought A Stay-at-home Mom Should Know

 By: Shana Shane
You've just delivered a fine little baby boy or girl. You thought that all the agony of pregnancy is over. No, you are wrong. The task ahead is bigger than you could ever imagined. So, now you want to go back to work but wait... who will look after your baby? So, there goes your career - you have no choice - you become a stay-at-home mom like the rest of us! Since you are a (or rather was a) highly successful career woman with lots of worldly experience and knowledge, you thought you know it all. Well .. guess what, you are wrong! I list the 4 most trivial things that you would never thought you should know about but you are about to find out how important they are.

1. Children Allergies
Why do you need to know about this? Because it is detrimental to your child's well being. Did you know that more than 20 percent of school-age children suffer from allergies. Children allergies is a condition that, if not diagnosed properly, can interfere with a child's ability to concentrate.

So, why do you need to know it now? Afterall, your baby will take some times before she/he goes to school. Here's why? According to the U.S. National Institutes of Health, allergies account for 2 million missed school days each year, and on any given day more than 10,000 children are absent from school due to troublesome allergy symptoms. You don't want your child to be one of these. You need to arrest the problem earlier. So, get all the information you need now so that you are well prepared to handle your child's allergy.

2. Food Allergies
As a first time mom, I did not know what to feed my first child as she was progressing from being an infant to a toddler, so, in one of the visit to the pediatrician, I asked him waht to feed her. His reply was: "you got to read and find out yourself."

Did you know that some children have problems with certain foods, ranging from mild intolerances to life-threatening ana-phylactic shock. Did you watch the show "Firewall" recently? The boy is allergic to nuts. He almost died when he ate the biscuit containing peanuts given to him by his abductor.

What is this 4 letter words anyway? Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. In my quest to find out more about ADHD, I went to a few ADHD forums and in one of the forum, I read this: " If your child does not have ADHD, you have no bsuiness being here". That really provokes me because I don't know anything about ADHD and that being the case, how the hell do I know if my child has ADHD or not.

4. Hair Loss Treatment
You'd be surprised how much hair you lose after you give birth! You used to have beautiful and maintenance free hair. Now, that is not the case anymore. You lose your hair. There is hair all over the house- on the bed, on the sofa, on the dining table and even worse in your husband's dinner or if you entertain a lot, it is a nightmare that you don't want to happen - your hair in your guest's dinner!.
