Every parent should read this mom’s urgent warning about aerosol sunscreens

in Uncategorized

When going on a trip to the beach sunscreen is very important for the hot sun. Sunblock is also important, especially for young kids and toddlers even when it’s cloudy.

If you have sensitive skin then it doesn’t take long for the sun to burn even if you are only going outside for a few minutes. One should never underestimate the strength and danger of sun exposure.

After spending a day in the sun, mother Rebecca Cannon thought her one-year-old daughter was well protected after coving her daughter in SPF50 sunblock. However the toddler’s skin turned red and began to peel. Rebecca realised it wasn’t the sun that she needed to worry about so she wants to warn others.

Rebecca Cannon borrowed some sunscreen spray from her sister to use for Kyla as it was a pretty hot day in Newfoundland, Canada.

Rebecca thought the SPF50 sunblock would have been enough to protect her daughter’s face on a sunny day. Rebecca son realized that the SPF numbers on sunblock bottles aren’t reliable, after her daughter’s face began to blister.

Rebecca put sunblock on her daughter’s face before going outside but it wasn’t until the next morning that her daughter’s started to burn.

Her daughter Kyla’s face swelled up she was burned and had big blisters on her cheeks. Despite the fact that the toddler barely spent any time out in the sun that day.

As the day went on, she got a little redder and redder and the next morning she woke up and was swollen. She was bright red. There were blisters starting to pop up,” says Rebecca.

Rebecca decided to take her daughter to a hospital emergency room, the doctor confirmed that the girl had second degree chemical burns.

Rebecca couldn’t help but worry as no one in the family had any signs of sunburns at all. A dermatologist was quick to uncover the likely truth behind the situation.

Apparently the sunblock was the cause, doctors informed Rebecca that it was possible her burns were a severe allergic reaction to the sunblock. This meant there may have been some kind of dangerous chemical in it.

Thankfully, Kyla will likely not deal with long-term issues and also does not seem to have any scarring, despite suffering from the burns.

In an attempt to prevent it from happening to other children Rebecca wrote about the incident on Facebook:

The sunblock Rebecca Cannon used on her daughter is called Banana Boat Kids SPF50. Rebecca decided to write to the company and issue a complaint concerning the ill effects of their sunscreen.

After Rebeccas warning and several reports of babies developing serious chemical burns upon using Banana Boat sunscreens, Health Canada launched an investigation into the products.

The department of health received almost 200 complaints from Canadians about Banana Boat sunscreen products.

Following, a vast range of examinations there didn’t seem to be any reason for concern about the sunscreen products.

This incident was probably more freak rather than one that implicates the manufacturers. It’s possible that Kyla had a severe allergic reaction.

It’s important to make people aware about this story so this doesn’t happen to any child again.

Babies and young children can have allergic reactions or very sensitive skin, so testing before full coverage, so patch testing is all the more crucial!

Not all sunscreens are reliable, so you be sure to consult your doctor about which one is best for your child.

Pregnant sperm whale found dead with nearly 50 pounds of plastic in its belly – this has to stop

in Uncategorized

Some of us aren’t lucky enough to live close to the ocean but it’s something many of us dream about doing every summer.

However our oceans are suffering due to something that is used by us all every day — plastic. The quantity of plastic that floats in our beautiful seas is a shock.

The image of a dead sperm whale washed up on the shores of a beach portrays the seriousness of this when almost 50 lbs of plastic was found in its belly. There was also a foetus found in the whale’s stomach.

Just to put that into context 50 lbs can be compared to two big bags of dog food or a small bale of hay. But as plastic, floating around the stomach of a whale, must have been extremely painful.

This endangered species was found washed up on the shores of Porto Cervo in Sardinia, a popular Italian beach resort. During the last two years she is one of five whales who have died from plastics, according to The World Wildlife Fund.

“She was pregnant and had almost certainly aborted before she beached,” Luca Bittau, the president of the SeaMe group.Steps to ban single-use plastics./ In the Philippines, a Cuvier’s beaked whale was found washed up dead with 88 pounds of plastic in its stomach.

The whale wasn’t getting any nourishment from food because of the amount of plastic therefore it passed away from dehydration and starvation after vomiting blood, according to scientists.

Luca Bittau explains that veterinarians in Padua, Italy, will carry out various tests to determine the exact cause of death but it is likely related to plastic also. On average, 8 million metric tons of plastic enter the ocean every year.

Measures are being taken by cities and countries around the world to ban single-use plastics: The European Parliament has approved a law banning single-use straws, cotton balls, and cutlery by 2021.

Plastic is making our oceans sick and if this doesn’t make you stop and think, I don’t know what will. Every effort to cut our use of plastics, however small, helps.

Mom Says Family Was Kicked Out Of Movie Theater Because Her Son With Special Needs Was Laughing

in Uncategorized

It can be often be stressful for parents of children with special needs when going out in public. Mother, Jennifer Daly, from Chicago, knows this firsthand. One of her sons, Jonathan, aged 3, has a rare form of dwarfism and Daly said it is a struggle to get him out for an excursion.

Jonathan can’t go anywhere without his wheelchair or medical equipment, his excitement and enthusiasm comes out in sounds and noises as he is unable to speak. His mom is used to the stares and comments from others.

One Friday evening Jennifer decided to venture out with Jonathan and her other young son to watch Dumbo at their local movie theater.

Midway through the movie Jonathan began to giggle, laugh and make noises. Naturally his mother Jennifer smiled at his squeals and yelps of joy were adorable… but apparently, she was the only one.

Jennifer was not prepared for what was about to happen next.

A member of staff approached her in the seat about ten minutes later. The employee said there were noise complaints of an “ongoing disruption” — where Jonathan was at the center of these complaints.

I looked at her and said he did not cry, he giggled twice,” the shocked mother wrote. “I was told I immediately have to pack up to leave.”

I don’t understand why I am being kicked out,” she continued. “Someone’s cell phone was going off for over a minute, someone else was holding their phone up with their light on to video-record the movie, someone else was talking and I am being kicked out? Are you serious?”

When she returned home she was in such shock that she took to Facebook to explain what had occurred. Her post went massively viral with almost 5,000 shares in the space of a day.

Daly added that she cried as the family left the theater.

Never in my life have I ever been kicked out of anything, especially if I had done nothing wrong,” she wrote. “I was at the top back of the theater to try and stay out of anyone’s way.”

Woman’s Gums Look Like Strawberries Caused By This Rare Condition

in Uncategorized

When a patient visited a clinic with deadly mouth disease , doctors were shocked when they saw her teeth engulfed in a case of overgrown gum, which resembled a strawberry.

The woman informed specialists that she began to notice the increase in size six weeks prior and had also suffered from nose bleeds.

The 42-year-old also had several ulcers on her face, which were ‘eating away’ at her face, according to the case study, which was reported in the New England Journal of Medicine.

Dr Maryam Ghiasi treated the woman at Tehran University of Medical Sciences, Iran, and said lab tests confirmed she was suffering from granulomatosis with polyangiitis (GPA), with tests showing several nodules in her lungs.

In the report, she said: “Strawberry gingivitis is a rare manifestation of granulomatosis with polyangiitis, and its clinical presentation is highly suggestive of the disease.”

The 42-year-old’s teeth became encased in overgrown gum.

Speaking about the case, Dr Joseph Nemeth, a peridontist from the United States, said: “The tissue can look like strawberries. However, it is a symptom of a very serious vascular or blood vessel disease. If not caught early it can be fatal”

“As dentists we are often the first to actually see something like this because the patient might not be aware of symptoms other than what’s going on in their mouth. This is an extreme case. These cases are not common, but they do occur.”

“A blood vessel disease can be treated if caught early but if not, it can be fatal.”

GPA can be deadly if not treated correctly as it causes severe damage to the body and can stop the kidneys working properly. The patient didn’t return for a check up so doctors are uncertain what of the outcome.

It’s thought to be caused by a problem with the immune system, which makes it attack the blood vessels in the body. Although specialists are unsure exactly what the root cause is, they believe it is triggered by an infection or virus.

The rare disease can prove fatal, causing major damage to the body, including preventing the kidneys from functioning if left untreated.

There are a number of signs to look out for when trying to spot the deadly condition, such as fatigue, hearing loss, rashes and lumps, as well as diarrhoea, double vision and even blood in urine.

Millionaire told airport staff he ‘deserved more courtesy’ because ‘he’s rich’

in Uncategorized

Neil Grinnall, 56, became angry after Ryanair staff informed him his hand luggage was too heavy for his flight from Bournemouth to Malaga. This millionaire was ordered to pay over £3,000 after he kicked up in an airport, and demanded better treatment because he was rich.

Catia Figueira and Michelle Gillingham were subjected to a torrent of abuse, which left them ‘petrified’.

When he was arrested, he explained to police that he’s ‘a rich man’ and had paid more money for his seat so he had ‘expected more courtesy’.

A court heard he called them ‘f***ing fat b****es’ and began shouting ‘this is f***ing ridiculous’ before he declared he would never fly from the airport again.

Grinnall attempted to pay the two victims off to avoid the case going to court, however they declined his offer.

A millionaire claimed he should be shown more courtesy because of his wealth after abusing check-in staff at an airport Provider: Facebook Source: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=1225434800873106&set=ecnf.100002197921850&type=3&theater

He’s been fined £2,500 and has had to pay £200 compensation each to both of the victims. He admitted using threatening and abusive language towards them. He was also ordered to pay £310 in court costs and a £170 victim surcharge.

Grinnall felt ‘genuine remorse’ for what had occurred and had said he would give the women a ‘face-to-face apology’.

Although he missed the first flight to Spain, he caught one later on as he posted a picture of himself in Marbella just four days later and returned from another holiday for the hearing.

The property developer has now been fined after launching a foul-mouthed tirade at 'petrified' airport staff who told him his hand luggage was too heavy. Neil Grinnall (56), of Sandbanks, Dorset, was catching a flight from Bournemouth to Spain when he 'lost his temper' at check-in staff. The businessman has previously been cautioned by police after launching a stool over the bar at Rick Stein's restaurant in the millionaires enclave of Sandbanks whilst on a night out with tv celebrity Celia Sawyer in 2017.

He said: “He has been told his hand luggage was overweight and had lost his temper and started shouting.

“He shouted things like ”this is f*****g ridiculous’ and called both of them ”f*****g fat b*****s’. “These women were just doing their job and they were understandably petrified.”

He added: “In his interview with the police Mr Grinnall basically said ‘I am a rich man’ and believed that by paying more for his seat he deserved more courtesy.”

Teen Wasn’t Permitted to Enroll in School Because Her Mom ‘Broke the Dress Code’

in Uncategorized

Many of us have encountered the outrageous stories about school dress codes. Usually, it applies to a teen being expelled for wearing shorts that were too short or wearing a prom dress that violated the rules.

Have you ever heard of a child not being admitted to a school based on what their parent was wearing? Joselyn Lewis claims thats exactly what happened when she tried to enroll her daughter at Madison High School, in Houston, Texas.

Initially, Lewis thought administrators had mistaken her for a student, but then they clarified, why she was not allowed on school property. Lewis was wearing a T-shirt dress with a graphic of Marilyn Monroe, flip-flops, and a head scarf.

Although it may not be what students are permitted to wear to school, she’s not certain why that matters at all.“She went on to say that she still couldn’t let me on the premises because I was not in dress codeand I still didn’t understand what that meant,” Lewis said.

“She said that my headscarf was out of dress code and my dress was too short.” But that didn’t make sense to Lewis either, since her dress had full coverage and even passed the “finger length test,” if that’s what they were basing it on.“I mean, I didn’t understand why my headscarf and my dress would conflict with me enrolling someone in school,” she explains.

Lewis demanded to see the school’s “parent dress code,” if Monroe High was going to turn her away on those grounds. However, there wasn’t one.“I wanted to see proof of where it says parents can come dressed a certain way, but [administrators] wouldn’t show me that,” she said.

Lewis refused to leave the premises and school officials called the police department. “They called them on me and I guess he was coming to tell me to leave, but I was already on the phone with the school board,” she shared.

Lewis says she was trying to enrol her daughter at Monroe to get her away from bullying at her current high school. Instead the mother Lewis ended up feeling like a victim of bullying.

The mom explains that she was actually in the process of getting her hair done at the time, which is why she had it wrapped in a headscarf. “I’m not saying that it’s a part of my religion, but it could have been,” she said, “[And] I just wanted to have it up. Who are you to say that I can’t wear my hair up? In a scarf? Who are you to tell me how to dress?

Social media users have been voicing their own opinions on the matter since this story has been making headlines. Many couldn’t see what the big deal was.“Looks like a dress to me,” wrote one Facebook user. “Pretty sure Old Navy sells them similar to that.

Others agreed with the school.”Dress appropriate when in public,” wrote another user. “Or stay home.”And others left some not-so-thinly-veiled criticisms (wrapped in a riddle).”I would have made a different choice,” wrote one user. “But your free to choose but never free from the consequences of your choice.”

It’s unclear where Lewis will be enrolling her 15-year-old now, but what is clear is that she is not a mom to be messed with.“I can wear what I want to wear,” she explains. “I don’t have to get all dolled up to enroll her to school. My child’s education, anyone’s child’s education should be more important than what someone has on, that shouldn’t matter.”

Video Goes Viral After Little Boy Finds Electric Razor And Attacks Sister’s Hair

in Uncategorized

Children are naturally curious which can often cause mischief. Most parents worry about what will happen when their little ones attempt to cut their own hair.

A little boy shaved his and his siblings’ hair off after finding an electric razor in their home. Teddy got his hands on his mum’s electric razor and, after giving himself a little trim, thought he’d extend the favour for his baby sister Eloise.

The little lad gave himself a fresh new hair style attacking his locks from the front. Eloise on the other hand wasn’t so lucky.

Teddy hacked away at his sister’s blonde locks starting from the nape of her neck and giving her an on-trend undercut which extends pretty much all the way up the back of her head.

Teddy left her with a cut which shall now be referred to as the ‘reverse monk’. Meanwhile, Eloise was in understandable emotional turmoil, 

After wiping away her tears Stephie concedes ‘it’s only hair’ and adds: ‘OK it’s just hair and it’s going to grow back and Mommy’s OK. Why did you let your brother do that?’

Teddy answers: ‘She said she liked me doing that a lot and I did it and we wanted to show you.’ 

Although Stephie was horrified she couldn’t help but see the funny side. When Stephie asked her daughter if she liked her ‘new haircut’, the youngster simply replied: ‘No.’ Mum also discovered that Teddy has also given his younger brother Freddy a trim too.

Teddy’s haircutting has gone viral after his uncle Ian Hagadorn shared a video of his haircutting efforts on Twitter.

Meet the mom who wants to breastfeed her 5-year-old daughter and younger son until they are 10, yay or nay

in Uncategorized

Breastfeeding has been considered a controversial subject for decades with so many expressing such strong opinions on something that is possibly one of the most natural things in the world.

Everyone seems to jump on board when it comes to those feeding in public or those moms who want to feed their kids longer than is “socially acceptable.” However each mother of a newborn is different so once mother and baby are happy thats all that should matter.

Miira Dawson, a science researcher turned full-time mother, says that while other parents may raise eyebrows at her decision, the benefits of extended breastfeeding are scientifically proven.

Unfortunately she caused quite a stir when she shared with the public that she wanted to feed her two kids until they were 10 years old, because it will make them more clever.

Mrs Dawson, who also has a two-year-old son called Ray Lee, nurses both children three times a day and shares a bed with them.

Miira says her goal was to carry on breastfeeding both her 5-year-old daughter and her 2-year-old son until they reached their tenth birthdays.

I think it is a lovely thing for a baby to grow up and remember being breastfed, as not many people would be able to say this,” she said in an interview. “Plus, there are all of the health and IQ benefits.”

Miira also co-sleeps with her son and daughter, while her husband Jim sleeps in another bedroom. He admits to feeling left out and the breastfeeding has put a strain on their relationship. ‘I had little choice in the matter of encouraging Miira to breastfeed as there was never an alternative other than to support her,‘ he says.

The health benefits for feeding your children longer than most are endorsed by the World Health Organisation and the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP)

A report endorsed by the AAFP says the natural weaning age for humans is anywhere between 2 and 7 years-old. Breastfeeding past infancy and even into toddlerhood has been shown to decrease breast cancer in the child later in life along with giving the child continued protection against contracting illnesses.

Mrs Dawson, who is originally from Finland, has no doubts and says the benefits than outweigh the downsides.
