Recall alert: Gerber's Cheese Ravioli Pasta Pick-Ups
Gerber is voluntarily recalling its Cheese Ravioli Pasta Pick-Ups for toddlers due to allergy concerns. The baby food company is giving parents a warning because, although eggs are listed in the ingredients list, it's not included in the "contains" warning section. Egg is one of the most common allergens that could trigger a reaction in kids. Symptoms of an egg allergy in kids include trouble breathing, hives, flushing or swelling skin, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, itching around the mouth, runny nose, rapid heartbeat, and low blood pressure. Gerber is now removing the product from stores as a precaution over the packaging missing information. (popsugar.com)

Breastfeeding Cafe? Yes, they exist!
In Buffalo, Minnesota, a Baby Café just opened up with this very goal in mind: to allow moms to get the information and support they need on breastfeeding, whether they're a newbie or a pro. The Baby Cafe is a joint effort of the Wright County Public Health and Allina Hospital, and is open even to moms who aren't necessarily having nursing issues, and pregnant moms who want to learn more about breastfeeding. The cafe serves refreshments and snacks, and there is also a weighing scale for babies and some breastfeeding pamphlets to take home. Moms are welcome to ask questions, share their experiences, and the best part? It's free of charge. "The goal of Baby Café is to support breastfeeding moms in whatever their goals are," shared Megan Ward, a lactation consultant and public health nurse. Here's to hoping someone opens up one in this part of the world soon. (babble.com)
