How Can My Baby Have Baby Acne, He’s Not That Old?Written by Peter Crump
Acne is a condition only affecting teenagers, true? False. Acne is a condition which can affect people of any age, hence baby acne and adult acne are common. However acne is more common in teens. Acne is number one skin problem in world and affects huge numbers of people worldwide. And baby acne, although not common, can be a cause of some angst amongst parents.
What is baby acne? Acne is not totally understood, including baby acne. The cause of acne is not agreed on amongst scientists. However general consensus is that acne, including baby acne, is a condition caused by changes in body’s hormones.
And when are body’s hormones changing? Well certainly in teenage years. But also at some other times in life. Like birth. When a baby has been separated from it’s mothers body by birth and it is living on it’s own for very first time. And when it is also getting some supplies of hormones from it’s mothers milk at same time.
Baby acne can occur in very young babies of 2 or 3 weeks, more commonly boys, up until around 6 months or so. It appears on various parts of baby’s body such as forehead, cheeks and chin, or more rarely bottom or back, and appears as small white spots on skin. Or it could look like a red rash with raised bumps.
Build Your Own Ant FarmWritten by Nell Taliercio
Why build your own ant farm? Ant farms are, both, fun and educational. They take up little space and are a great way to teach your children about these amazing little insects. They will learn a bit about entomology and how an ecosystem works… without even trying.
There is no need to purchase a ready-made ant habitat. Building your own ant farm is easier than you might think. It is an ideal science project or something to consider when your kids are suffering from a case of ‘mid-summer there’s-nothing-to-do blues’.
If you have time to research subject, on your own, you will probably find a wide variety of instructional articles and tips touching on best way to build an ant farm. Some of these methods will prove to be more complicated than others.
But, if you are anything like me I know you are interested in a fairly simple project. So, I recommend that you follow instructions below and save HARD work for ants!
• Small aquarium and a smaller container to take up un-needed center space • Sand and/or garden dirt • Funnel • Construction paper • Scotch tape • Shovel • Bucket • Cotton balls • Honey • ANTS! (large black ants work best)
