Autism Awareness Month

Did you know (as stated by the Autism Society of America) that:

* Every day 60 American families are told they have a child with autism.
* As many as one out of every 150 babies born will have autism.
* Autism is growing at an alarming rate of 10 to 17 percent each and every year in America.
* More children will be diagnosed with autism this year than AIDS, diabetes and cancer combined.
* 1.5 million Americans have some form of autism spectrum disorder.
* Autism receives less than 5% of the public funding contributed each year to fight all major childhood diseases.

Did you also know that the incidence of autism is 4 times more common in boys than in girls? These statistics are overwhelming to me! So, what can we do?

If you have children, the best thing is to watch for early signs. Autism can be treated but early diagnosis and intervention is crucial. Here are some signs to look for:

*Lack of or delay in spoken language
*Repetitive use of language and/or motor mannerisms (e.g., hand-flapping, twirling objects)
*Little or no eye contact
*Lack of interest in peer relationships
*Lack of spontaneous or make-believe play
*Persistent fixation on parts of objects

Don't ever hesitate to speak with your pediatrician about Autism (or anything for that matter!). There are also many organizations such as the Autism Society of America, Autism Speaks, and the Autism Research Institute that can give you more information on the disease and how to get involved!

We're so cool!

Check us out today on Cool Mom Picks! Here's what Liz had to say about us:

"Call me a blanket snob, but it drives me crazy when a blanket isn't finished as perfectly on both sides. Considering most babies kick the thing all over the place, why even bother picking out a beautiful fabric if all anyone is going to see is the solid underside?

Mairzey Dotes, who we discovered here last year, is tackling this grave issue head-on with their new line of handmade reversible blankets. Filled with cotton batting, they soften nicely with every wash. The Mockingbird/Polka dot combo is striking for Spring and the Paisley Dot is a great gift for a mom-to-be friend with the insane willpower to resist knowing the sex of her baby. And toddlers will enjoy the power of dictating whether you tuck them in "dot side up or paisley side up."

Trust me new moms, that may not seem like an issue now. But it will be. Oh how it will be." -Liz

Now hurry on over to CMP and enter today's contest. They are giving away one of our Mockingbird reversible blankets. Skedaddle -- the contest ends tonight!
