Breast Milk Labels
Expressed Breast Milk means to squeeze milk out of your breast without a baby latching on to the nipple. It is always best to directly breastfeed a new-born baby however, it is not always possible. If a baby is born premature or is unwell, you can store your breast milk so that the baby can be fed at a later time.

The physical development of a new-born’s neck muscles is important for their future life as it provides the grounds which allows the progress of all their future movement such as sitting up, crawling and walking.

One of the most common reasons for women being advised to wean their babies or for women to stop breastfeeding of their own accord is due to sore nipples. Even during the early stages of pregnancy some women stress that their nipples react very sensitively to any pressure and are therefore afraid that breastfeeding will very quickly lead to sore nipples. Many problems with breastfeeding only occur after the mothers have left the hospital. In some cases, the myth that breastfeeding is unfamiliar to begin with and can lead to painful nipples is true.

Dance helping people with Dementia
There has been a new study linking the benefits of dancing with the treating of dementia in east London, according to the BBC. Dementia is becoming more and more widespread in the elderly population throughout the UK and scientists have started to look at alternative ways to treat the condition without resorting to any kind of drug therapy. Music and dancing is just one area of study and they appear to be having a protective effect. Researchers from the University of Canterbury have started to work together with a dance company in order to analyse the benefits of music and dance in correlation with the treating of dementia.
Physiotherapy after a Stroke
Strokes can cause damage to a part of the brain that controls personal movement. This can cause weakness or paralysis on one side of the body and problems with moving and carrying out every day activities. The affected side of the body may feel different or heavy because the weakness make them difficult to move, or they may feel numb. Some people have more unusual sensations such as pins and needles, hot and cold sensations or feel as though water in running their limb.
