THIS WEEKS TELEVISION RECAPS: 30 Something Grandma

30 Something Grandma Follows the lives of 3 women, Patricia, Prudence and Chantel, who are all about to become grandmothers in their 30’s. I first saw this show on Tuesday and how the stories of the three young girls and mothers are being played out, while the young women are carrying their first babies. At first a lot of thoughts comes to mind and I woundered can we prevent these situations from happening to our girls? Well it is easy for me to say, but being a teen myself it is hard for me to stand by and not say anything. I have witnessed first hand how the impacts of having a baby at young age can change the course of life, thankfully these young mothers have the warm support of their mothers. This show reveals the true reality of what teen moms face and how they can be relentless in still making their dreams true, by going to school in order to create a better life. I hope you can watch this show in a nonjudgmental light. Becoming a teen parent can happen to anybody, but with the proper education we can prevent this from being an epidemic.

Here is a preview of the season:

“30 Something Grandma” is executive produced by David Eilenberg, Simon Thomas, Brian Zagorski and Jennifer Duncan for ITV Entertainment. Mary Donahue and David Hillman executive produce for Lifetime. Three one-hour, closed-ended episodes have been ordered.In partnership with Lifetime, The National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy provided consultation to the production of “30 Something Grandma” and “Knocked Up.” The organization has been involved with both shows since their inception, and stands by these docuseries as valuable programming to shed light on these issues and the staggering statistics that impact our nation. Per the organizations’ research, although the teen birth rate in the U.S. has declined dramatically – down more than 45% since 2007 and more than 60% since the early 1990s – the United States still has the highest rates of teen birth of any comparable nation. Additional sourced research reveals that nearly half of all pregnancies in the U.S are described by the women themselves as unplanned and more than half (58%) of unintended pregnancies end in a birth. Women who use contraception consistently and correctly account for only 5% of all unintended pregnancies.

Words from other moms….

We LOVE our Twin Z pillow!! I received the Twin Z pillow as a gift before our twins came. I had bought the Brest Friend twin nursing pillow, but ended up returning that one after trying both.
The Twin Z was a lot more comfortable for both me and the babies. At the beginning, I was nursing the twins and using this pillow. Now I am bottle feeding and use it when I am alone feeding them. We always try to feed them at the same time & with this pillow, that is possible! I don’t know how I would feed without it! The girls are always laying in the pillow.  Now we haveeven started using the pillow for tummy time. For anyone that is having twins, I highly recommend this purchase! It is well worth it and you won’t regret getting it! 🙂 ~Kara

 Hi! Greetings from —-, We have 2 month old identical twin girls. 🙂 We found your pillow by chance online when we were thinking ahead to how I was going to feed two babies at once when my husband goes back to work (our girls are all bottle fed). This is by far the BEST purchased we have made since the girls were born. I have the My Brest Friend twin plus pillow, which is nice but yours is SO much better! The Twin Z pillow is so sturdy – it’s almost like a couch cushion and that makes it so wonderful. Much sturdier than the Boppy pillows. Right now the Twin Z is the only place my girls will consistently sit and be happy or fall asleep (besides crib at night). We’re even considering buying a second one (nursery is on the second floor, kitchen and our room on the first, would be easier to have two than drag the one around!). Thanks for an amazing product. It’s been a sanity-saver for us and we’ve only had it 3 or 4 days. – Amanda Update…. Hi! We still LOVE our Twin-Z – both of them! I use it every day for double feedings. And thanks for putting my last review/email on the website – I hope it’s helping others!

The Twin ‘Boppy’ Wannabe
Over the last year, I’ve done my share of research on unique twin novelty items. But I always thought someone would make a killing inventing the “Twin Boppy”. Well it turns out… someone did! My good friend Nicole bought me this insanely genius invention. Truly a must-have for any mommy of tiny twins. The actual product name is Twin Z Pillow and can be found at THIS website, and you can choose from lots of different fabrics! You can do boyish, girl-ish, OR gender neutral. Someone was thinking! The girls love to sit in it. And today, for the first time we had a successful tandem feeding! Hands down my favorite twin-baby item. – Beth

They also have Twin Z Pillow for moms of twins and One Z Pillow for moms of singletons.

I hope you enjoyed the Mother Youth experience!!  You can see all of Twin Z Pillow’s products at http://onezpillow.com/  ! Take care of  yourself and your precious baby or babies.
