If we truly knew the answer to that question, we would be able to prevent a woman going into labor before her baby was fully developed. What we do know is that hormones play a large role in keeping a woman pregnant and stimulating uterine contractions to begin labor. As a pregnancy progresses the mother’s body produces hormones helping her stay pregnant until the baby can survive outside the womb.
The early weeks with a new baby are exhausting. Babies sleep as many 12 to 18 hours a day, usually in one-, two- or three-hour increments. When they wake they want to eat. That means a mother may only get two hours of sleep at a time. Sleep deprivation is one of the hardest adjustments with a new baby. Sleep is probably one of the most talked about topics amongst mothers. People associate a “good” baby versus a “not so good” baby, by how much they sleep, or by how much their mother gets to sleep.
The American Academy of Pediatrics has recommended giving all newborns a shot of vitamin K shortly after delivery since 1961. Unfortunately there is growing trend of parents refusing the vitamin K shot for their babies. Along with that trend there is an alarming number of babies experiencing brain and intestinal bleeds. Prior to the routine giving of vitamin K, too many babies died from uncontrolled bleeding. The administration of the vitamin K shot brought that to a halt.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
