I was invited to attend the unveiling of a brand new website for moms and moms-to-be recently. The event was in the heart of Capitol Hill, D.C. — I felt a little out of place in my mommy-ness in a sea of business suited men and women, but the event was well worth it. I even dressed up for the occasion!

My oldest is 13 and my youngest is 6, so it has been some time since I had to fret over proper nutrition for infants or child development milestones. But, when I was in the trenches of motherhood I was desperate for resources, reassurances, and advice from professionals, friends, and just about everyone. Hello, helpful FedEx pickup/delivery lady from 2000 I’m talking about you!

Back then I don’t recall searching for anything online. I must have at some point, but my main references were the pediatrician and What to Expect When You’re Expecting: Fourth Edition. (I used the first or second edition in the interests of full disclosure!)

But, the pediatrician was not available in the early hours of morning, so unless the baby was very sick I had to rely on my own instincts as a mother. You can imagine how thrilled I would have been to use the newly unveiled website:!

This website is visually amazing with eye-catching videos and pictures. The website will take us Moms on a unique and powerful visual journey through infant nutrition and development, with amazing visuals that reveal how proper nutrition shapes development and how individual nutrients affect the senses, bone formation, and the immune system of infants. Showcasing new data and 3-D images, the site lets you explore and learn the latest research findings through video, pictures, and graphics, in depth questions like why infant eyesight depends on getting enough DHA and what key nutrients contribute to the healthy growth of your child’s brain.

Developed as a resource for Moms, the website brings together information from leading health centers and researchers across the country to explain how nutrition is crucial to infant development.

How can you make sure that your newborn gets the nutrients she needs to ensure healthy growth through her first birthday?

How do you keep her stomach from getting upset?

What should you, as an expectant Mom, eat to ensure that you stay healthy as your infant grows?

What vitamins do you need if you’re breastfeeding to ensure that you’re passing along the right nutrients to your infant?

GIVEAWAY! I am giving away The Must-Have Mom Manual: Two Mothers, Two Perspectives, One Book That Tells You Everything You Need to Know, a book written by two Mom panelists from the Modern Mom Meets Modern Science panel at the DC event — Sara Ellington and Stephanie Triplett. The other two panelists were a nutritionist and a doctor– don’t have names as press kit is missing. Organization, smorganization! Eureka! I found the press kit…the nutritionist was Madelyn Fernstrom, PhD, CNS, and the pediatrician was Gregory Finn, MD. You can also purchase the book here.
To win the book you must be an expectant mom, or a mom of a child under 6 AND live in the U.S. #poorbloggerwhomustpayforshipping. Giveaway ends November 30, 2009 at 11:59 p.m.
– Tell me your most embarrassing baby/toddler feeding moment. Mine would be when my toddler threw a container of yogurt across a restaurant. The yogurt hit a very huge/tall man’s chair. I cleaned up the yogurt without the man noticing. Yikes!
