Welcome to Up Baby Up we are excited to share what we learned in the journey of parenting from science and life.
The journey started a few years ago when my husband and I decided to expand our family. Without realizing it, we missed the golden age for pregnancy. It turned out to be a challenge to even get pregnant. After the initial frustration, we seeked help from all possible sources for information and tips: friends, other parents, books and internet articles. As a habit from years of academic training (both of us are engineering PhDs), we try to verify the information using scientific literature and research papers as much as possible.
We adjusted our diet and lifestyle to get us ready physically and mentally. One sunny morning a few months later, the little blue “+” sign magically appeared in the test strip. I was so thrilled and immediately call my husband who was travelling at that time (it was 2 am in Asia!).
Time flies… Our son Vincent is running around and talks all the time. Parenting has been the greatest and most rewarding experience in my life: feeling him growing in my tummy, holding the infant, hearing him cooing, witness his first smile, first step… Our knowledge and experience keep growing as Vincent progress into the next new stage.
My husband and I are blessed having a beautiful and healthy kid. It has not been an easy journey for us, so we decide to share what we learned in this blog. Every family is unique; there is no one-size-fits-all. It will be our pleasure if what we shared helps you in any way in your own journey.
