  • Dingdong's daddy duties in Paris

    People are still talking and ogling at the photos from the wedding of Vicki Belo and Hayden Kho, Jr., in Paris, France. And it's not just because of Vicki's pink bridal gown or the opera house that served as the wedding reception. Everyone had her favorite Scarlet Snow moment (read ours here) and sweet scenes from the couples and families who attended as guests.

    One Instagram account dedicated to Marian Rivera's style, @marian_OOTD, posted yesterday a snap of Zia's Fendi diaper bag, dutifully carried by dad Dingdong Dantes, and it matched his tuxedo. "Perfect size to fit baby bottles (with pumped breast milk), ice packs, diapers, and other essentials for Zia," the caption read. 

    Dingdong's duties not only involved carrying her daughter's diaper bag, it also included ironing his wife Marian's clothes (check it out here). Aww. While we're on the subject of Zia's bag, the stylish toddler wore a floral Dolce and Gabanna dress at the welcome dinner aboard the cruise along the River Seine. Then it was a Michael Cinco creation for her flower dress.  

    LOOK: Jodi Sta. Maria shares glimpse of her back-to-school journey

    The single mom and award-winning actress is serious about pursuing her degree. She shared a selfie via Twitter while she waited for her Psychology Statistics class to start. "School is cool," Jodi tweeted, "All thing are difficult before they become easy." The actress, who was wearing her school uniform in the photo, is currently enrolled at Southville International School and Colleges as a Psychology student. It has always been Jodi's dream to be a doctor, but it became difficult for her to do her work and study at the same time. The school program's flexible hours has allowed Jodi to continue with her pre-med course. If everything goes well, Jodi can get her college degree in just two years. Good luck, Jodi! (inquirer.net)

    New research affirms exercise during pregnancy is safe and beneficial
    Another study confirms what we already know is true. Spanish researchers have found that exercise can prevent weight gain and lower the risk of having very large babies, pre-eclampsia, gestational diabetes, cesarean section, lower back pain, pelvic pain, and urinary incontinence. The study also shows exercise is safe as long as the mom has no medical or pregnancy condition that would prevent her to do so, and there is no risk for premature birth, low birth weight, or fetal distress. 

    Preggos should start exercising between weeks 9 and 12 of pregnancy or after the first prenatal visit, all the way until weeks 38 to 39. They should do so regularly, three to four times a week, with each session lasting 45 to 65 minutes. But avoid anything strenuous such as long-distance running, intense weight and isometric contraction training, jumps, impact exercises, and activities that can put a pregnant woman at risk of falling on her back.

    Could ADHD be linked to lack of sleep?
    Almost 75 percent of children and adults with ADHD also have issues with their sleep. The two conditions have been thought to be separate issues, that is until this new study that showed a link between lack of regular sleep and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Researchers found that 75 percent of ADHD patients have problems achieving the physiological sleep phase. Patients with ADHD also experience a higher level of alertness in the evening, which is also associated with many sleep-related disorders, such as restless-leg syndrome and sleep apnea.Around 70 percent of adults with ADHD also suffer from oversensitivity to light which may affect sleep pattern and quality. The study may have established links, but the researchers explained that not all ADHD problems have to do with sleep patterns though it may be an essential element. (inquirer.net)
