Advertiser Staff and News Services
To coincide with American Heart Month this month and raise money supporting women's heart-health initiatives nationwide, actress and artist Jane Seymour and the California Pistachio Commission (which showcases pistachios as a heart-healthy snack) have teamed up, creating four paintings featured in a set of limited-edition note cards to be sold throughout the year.
The set of 12 cards (three each of four designs) is $15, including shipping and handling. For more information, visit www.pistachios.org.
There's no gain when baby's in pain
As much as parents would like to eliminate it altogether, babies are likely to experience some pain. Shots, bumps and bruises are, after all, part of growing up.
But that doesn't mean parents have to sit idly on the sidelines, either. BabyTalk magazine, which was relaunched this month with a focus on real-life tips, worked with the American Academy of Pediatrics on a list of things parents can do for their babies to minimize pain:
- Give the simplest soother. Sucking has been a comfort to babies since time immemorial.
- Bundle. Most infants younger than 3 months like to be swaddled.
- Keep them close. Skin-to-skin contact has been shown to reduce stress.

"Marriage doesn't even exist in my vocabulary."
