Hudson on Croton… Oh, wait, I mean Hudson on Dad…

Dear Friends and Renegade Health Readers,

Annmarie and I would love to introduce you to the newest addition to our (and your extended) family!

Hudson Cole Gianni (Pronounced: Hudson Cole Gianni)

Vital Stats:

Born: July 14th, 2012
Time: 8:23 PST / 11:23 PST
Where: Oakland, CA, Alemeda County
Weight: 7 pounds, 13 oz (Weighed after expelling about 4 tablespoons of the strangest poo man has ever seen.)
Height: 21 inches.
Vertical Leap: 0
40 Yard Dash Time: 2 Years, 4 Months
Favorite Foods: Milk, Colostrum.

Positive Traits:

  • Remarkably cute, considering his father’s 7.0 rating on Hot or Not back in ’02.
  • Would be able to escape from any straight jacket and chains while submerged in water — based on his Houdini-like ability to get out of his swaddling blankets.
  • Big hands, big feet…

Most Likely to Be: The President (Who doesn’t think this?!?!)

Names Mommy Did Not Allow: Steeler Smith, Rocco, Mario, Spumoni, and Hudson Cole Colameo Sanzo Scott Barack Obama Murray Milono Gianni (Not enough boxes on standard Government forms.)

Potential Nicknames: HC, Hudco (Sounds like an Air Conditioner Installation Business based on Route 9 in Poughkeepsie.), Handsome Hudson

Most Resembles: A Glowworm

Potential Future Drawbacks:

  • Looks down at a woman’s breasts when talking to them.
  • He squeaks.

Quirky Facts:

  • Farts like a grown man.
  • Was born wearing a I (Heart) Green Juice T-Shirt.

Update on Mama:

Mama is doing amazing. She was brave, powerful and focused during and after the birth. A natural!

We’ve attached some pics so you can see for yourself…

Lots of Love!

Kevin Gianni

Kevin Gianni is a health author, activist and blogger. He started seriously researching personal and preventative natural health therapies in 2002 when he was struck with the reality that cancer ran deep in his family and if he didn’t change the way he was living — he might go down that same path. Since then, he’s written and edited 6 books on the subject of natural health, diet and fitness. During this time, he’s constantly been humbled by what experts claim they know and what actually is true. This has led him to experiment with many diets and protocols — including vegan, raw food, fasting, medical treatments and more — to find out what is myth and what really works in the real world.

Kevin has also traveled around the world searching for the best protocols, foods, medicines and clinics around and bringing them to the readers of his blog — which is one of the most widely read natural health blogs in the world with hundreds of thousands of visitors a month from over 150 countries around the world.

I’ve got 3 little ones now, having never felt all that prepared, but it’s so great that we get to learn along with our child…keeps it more about that relationship and less about all the formulated and rigid how-tos of parenting (if there are any! haha). With how you are so open to learning and flexible/open-minded, I can tell that you are going to make AMAZING parents, hands down. Thanks so much for the update Kevin, and for letting us in on your joy! Probably the best/funniest run-down / birth announcement I’ve read yet too 🙂 hahaha

    Huge congrats!
    Best thing in life…parenting.
    Many wishes for you to enjoy this most wondrous time in your life.
    ps. I urge you to sleep when the baby sleeps, whenever you can, and also to really be with baby (as opposed to multi tasking) while nursing, whenever you can. It may seem like there is too much to do for that, but there really isn’t… anything else can wait….its the absolute best thing I did as an early parent, above any other of the many decisions, and that intense early presence really brings results.

  332. Bliss Cameron says:

    I have had my hands full this past year and haven’t been able to keep up with e-mails, are there pictures posted somewhere of Annmarie in her glowing stage? ( mind you she glows all the time anyway, but there is a special glow only an expecting mom can carry)? Seems like yesterday my teens were that little, it goes FAST, so slow down and smell the roses, or baby toes 🙂

  458. Marie says:

    Congradulations! And just in case you are still swadeling eeek this is new info for me to so here it is…

  459. Marie says:

    Congratulations! And just in case you are still swaddling eeek this is new info for me to so here it is…

  460. Marie says:

    Reasons not to swaddle:

    1) Keeps baby from startling – When we remember that the startle reflex is a survival mechanism which help infants to wake up and alert their parents if something is wrong. (Like falling out of a tree or forgetting to breath) Then logically it seems like a bad idea to intentionally subdue that reflex. As a parent the idea of it makes me really uncomfortable. Sure babies do sometimes startle when there is nothing wrong, but I will take a few false startles as a comfort that my baby will wake up if something is actually wrong. I should mention, however, that the scientific jury is still out on this one.

    I have found two similar studies done on the effects of swaddling on the startle reflex here and here that come to two different conclusions. One recognizes the inhibition of startle reflex but asserts that this poses no risk for SIDS (This study used a swaddle method that did not limit mobility of the infant’s legs, which is interesting.), while the other shows a big difference in arousal responses of infants who are routinely swaddled vs those who are not and suggests that further study is needed on what this means for SIDS risk.

    2) Not entirely all that womb-like – Aside from the snug fit, a swaddling blanket is nothing like the womb, it isn’t always the perfect temperature (see next point), it doesn’t have a heartbeat or comforting voice, it has no means of providing nutrients.

    3) Possibility of overheating – Human infants are born quite helpless, we all know this. They cannot walk, feed themselves, or do their own (never ending) laundry. They also aren’t very good at regulating their own body temperature. When an infant becomes too hot, which could happen in a tight swaddle in thick blankets, they are at risk for apnea. The most natural way for an infant to maintain a proper temperature is through direct contact with a parent or caregiver. (see link in point 5)

    4) Hip Dysplasia – The standard super tight burrito swaddle that the nurses at our hospital raved about can often result in an infant spending a lot of time with their legs incorrectly positioned causing problems in the hip joints not unlike the effects of improper babywearing. While no extensive large scale studies have been carried out on the effects of swaddling on hip joint development there is still evidence to show the correlation.

    5) Limits tactile stimulation – Since an infant in a swaddle is so tightly wrapped in so many layers of fabric it limits the stimulation of a caregivers touch. Since physical contact is so important for bonding, breastfeeding, and for an infant to self regulate body heat, heart rate, and other biological systems, it may not be such a good idea for an infant to spend too much time wrapped up in this way.

    6) Could potentially interfere with breastfeeding – In the early days a swaddled baby who enjoys being swaddled may rouse less often and therefore spend less time at the breast, this can lead to a higher incidence of jaundice and weight loss in newborns. A swaddle also prevents a newborn from displaying early signs of hunger like trying to get their hands in their mouth. In the very early days and weeks when learning cues and communication is still in progress limiting these early cues could potentially cause feeding problems. Limiting direct contact between mother and baby could also have an effect on milk supply.

    7) Interferes with Elimination Communication – If you are planning to use natural infant hygiene with your infant, a tight swaddle will also limit your newborns ability to communicate elimination cues and your ability to acknowledge eliminations quickly.

    There was, of course, no mention of any of this when my son was born and constantly being brought to me tied up in his flannel prison of sadness; only insistence that babies love to be swaddled when my baby so obviously did not. My instincts told me that the swaddle wasn’t right for us and I am happy I listened to them because knowing what I know now about it I would have been a lot more adamant that the hospital staff stop doing it.

    I am, of course, not suggesting that no one should swaddle their infants ever. If your baby seems to enjoy playing cabbage roll then by all means don’t eliminate the practice from your repertoire completely. However I would say that the points above are very good reasons to limit the time an infant spends in a swaddle. All of the benefits of a tight swaddle can be achieved in other ways that do not pose the same potential risks. A good tummy to tummy hold in a sling or wrap for instance. So if you have the option to wear your baby, or have a family member spend some skin to skin time with your baby then why not do that instead when you can?

    What I am saying is that swaddling really isn’t the magical cure all that many of us are led to believe and there is absolutely no harm in leaving it out of your life if that’s what you want to do. There is certainly nothing wrong with a baby who doesn’t enjoy it, so don’t feel bad when you quickly un-wrap your newborn the second a caregiver hands them to you.
