Bethesda, MD – Pilates for Pregnancy exercise app shows benefits in the birth weight of newborns. In the October issue of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Norwegian researchers found that the odds of delivering a too big baby dropped as much as 28% in women who exercised regularly. A heavier birth weight poses risks to both the baby and the mother. If a baby weighs more than 8.8 lbs, the risks run from delivery problems, c-sections, postpartum hemorrage and low apgar scores all increase. Larger babies also have an increased risk of obesity later in life according to the researchers.
The Pilates for Pregnancy exercise iphone app is based on the top ratedPrenatal Pilates DVDand the “Pilates and Pregnancy Workbook”.

Praha, Czech Republic – Sarsoft today is pleased to announce the launch of its new product – Baby Monitor & Alarm for iPhone. “We are continuing with the development of innovative applications for the iPhone, and Baby Monitor & Alarm is another ingenious invention”, says Jindrich Sarson, director of Sarsoft. Baby Monitor & Alarm brings new and innovative functions to Baby Monitor applications.
Every Baby Monitor product can monitor children who sleep in their bedroom and their parents are notified immediately if there is any noise in the children’s room. But Baby Monitor & Alarm for iPhone goes even further. One of our unique features is “Mum’s voice”.
“Everybody knows, that mum’s voice is very soothing and comforting to a child”, says Sarson. Therefore Sarsoft implemented functionality to record any voice (it doesn’t matter if it’s mum’s voice or your child’s favorite song), and this voice can be replayed to your child when he/she starts crying. This has proven to be very effective.
“We have feedback from our users performing beta-testing. According to our users, it works perfectly, and in some cases, the child even goes back to sleep”, adds Sarson, who is also a father of 2 young children. This functionality is optional and it depends oon parents, if they want to use it.
Another functionality that got approval from its users is the application’s ability to record your child’s voice. The application simply records all voice activity in the child’s room. It doesn’t matter, if the application is set to alarm or if it’s only in monitoring mode. By using this function, parents can easily check, if their child has coughs or if they have bad dreams. All activity is displayed in the Activity log found in the application. This makes it possible for the parents to check their child’s sleeping patterns. They just need to compare the Activity log for several days.

Not all economy seats are created equal. Can you get a good seat experience for decent shut-eye? By doing a little bit of digging you’ll find out enough info to help you make a flight in economy a pleasant flight, instead of an unbearable one. My suggestion is that you should be aware of what one or two inches of leg room can do — it makes the difference between being able to open your laptop all the way or being able to cross my legs comfortably. Seat pitch and width can vary greatly between airline carriers and aircraft type. So, when you’re comparing flights, be sure to check out the comparison chart at the end of the post to help you identify the differences between seat pitch and width on different airlines.
Seat pitch is the distance from any point on one seat to the exact same point on the seat in front or behind it. And while it is not the exact equivalent of “legroom”, it does give a very good approximation of how much seat room you should expect. The Bottom Line: the more seat pitch the better!
Virgin America – Where JetBlue attempts to woo its patrons with extra leg room and some satellite audio and video content, Virgin has opted for a sensory barrage. Stepping into what is seemingly a “purple palace” in the sky with fully-equipped mood lighting, the brand new fleet of aircrafts at Virgin America provide passengers with some of the latest technology for in-flight entertainment and productivity. The Airbus A320 features comfortable leather seats in coach class, and a comfortable pitch of 32” and width of 19.7”.
Emirates – Emirates is relatively generous to their coach passengers in terms of legroom. Coach passengers flying the A330 can expect their seats to have a pitch of 32”, while flying the B777 aircraft will up the ante to 33”-34”. Seat width remains approximately 17.5” on either type of aircraft.
Singapore Airlines – Singapore Airline were the first airline in the world to put into service the Airbus A380. The A380 has 32“ seat pitch and 19” width. The Singapore Airbus A340-500 used on long haul flight between New York and Singapore is even more spacious than the bigger A380 with 37“ of seat pitch and 20“ seat width.
JetBlue – JetBlue has recently reconfigured their fleet of A320 aircrafts which has helped to increase the seat pitch in coach. Passengers can now expect to have a coach seat with a 34”-36” pitch, and for an additional $10, passengers can request an “Even More Legroom” seat, which increases the pitch to an impressive 38” – these seats are limited, and you must call a JetBlue agent to book one of these seats at 1-800-JETBLUE.
Virgin Atlantic – Flying Virgin Atlantic offers two choices for economy passengers: Economy, and Premium Economy. Economy passengers can expect their seats to have a pitch of about 31”, while Premium Economy customers can expect a tad bit more leg room and a wider seat at 21”, compared to 17.5”. Economy seats also feature seatback TVs, video on-demand, and some seats feature video game consoles with up to 35 different games.
Qantas – Qantas provides ample legroom for economy passengers on both their domestic and international flights. The B747 fleet provides 32” pitch seating, and a width of 17.25”. Qantas recently began offering International Premium Economy seating for select flights, and these seats offer a wider 19.5” seat and footrest. Each seat also has its own personal fold-out 8.4” touch-screen monitor built-in to the armrest for watching movies on-demand.
Cathay Pacific – Cathay’s fleet of B-777s offer a seat pitch of 32”, and a width of 18.5”. Flying coach class aboard their larger A340-600 aircrafts, from Hong Kong to New York nonstop, offers a marginally slimmer seat width at 17.75”. These long flights offer economy passengers an innovative view from the nose of the plane via a nose-wheel cam that broadcasts a signal to the TV screens on-board.
British Airways – On the British Airways Boeing 747-400 the World Traveller (economy) class has 31″ of pitch, and a seat width of 17.5”. Each British Airways aircraft also features 4-5 rows of World Traveler Plus economy seating with larger 38” pitch, 18.5” width, and slightly greater reclining capabilities.
Japan Airlines – Japan Airlines offers both an Economy and a Premium Economy choice for seating. The economy seats offer a spacious 34” of pitch and a 17” width, while the Premium Economy seats offer an increased 38” of pitch and 18.9” width. Premium Economy seating is available on JLA’s Boeing 777-300ER aircraft (a total of 46 seats per plane). These seats also offer an incredible 120-degrees of recline.
United Airlines – United offers two choices to its economy passengers; Economy and Economy Plus. Economy passengers can expect differing amounts of leg room depending upon the specific aircraft. All aircraft seats have a seat pitch of 31” except for: the A319 (31”-33”), the A320 (31”-33”), the A321 (32”), and the A330-300 (32”-34”). Economy Plus seating adds an additional 4” of legroom, and this seating option is available to Premier or high status members of United’s Mileage Plus frequent flier program, or to full-fare/unrestricted economy passengers.

A tip of the hat goes to SeatGuru for compiling seating charts.
I do like that you don’t have to put it down on the ground and that everything is accessible. I might have an issue re-zipping it up only because I have the wiggliest squirming baby on earth. I think I’d like the Jr. better, just more slimming, I hate to add bulk especially at such a key location. Check it out at http://www.baggino.com/
I’d love to be the mom with the most prestine car in the carline, but I’m the mom whose kid junk falls out when she opens the side door to let the kiddies in. That’s just how I roll.
How do you pimp your mom style?
