  • We have a message from a previous student. Go to Student Recipes and read the message in comments. Does anyone know who this person is? She/he forgot to sing!
  • Last week's topic summary: Thanks everybody! It is very interesting to read about all the different traditions surrounidn birth in your different countries. Most of you believe not all advice given by old people is true. This is what Silvia wrote:

I don't have babies but I don't believe in superstitions. In my country somethings old people tell us are very good advice for example what Rosa says about keeping babies nice and tight. Other things are silly. They are not true, for example: Don't take cold showers while you are breasfeeding; if you want to eat something and you don't eat it, you can't touch your body because the baby will be born with the mark of what you didn't eat in the body, if your baby has a hiccups you have to put something red on his/her forhead, if your baby doesn't sleep well you have to put his/her dressing gown inside-out.
