Symptoms include inconsolable cries for hours on end, a general predictable time every day that your baby cries, kicking his legs up towards his stomach and a tightening of his arms. Things that can help with colic are baby massage, swaddling (see diagram above), and remaining calm during those difficult hours.

I work at Sonora Regional Medical Center and this week, I have been working at a pediatric clinic and I have learned certain things about circumcisions and when it should be performed on a baby boy. A circumcision is the surgical removal of the foreskin and, on infants, it is performed within the first few day after birth.

One of the more fascinating things that I read in this chapter pertains to the two cultures of New Guinea in which there were remarkable similarities between men and women. In fact, despite their various differences; both the gentle friendly and relatively docile Arapesh culture and the savage barbaric Mundugumor culture of New Guinea both see men and woman are as equals with each gender sharing similar roles during child baring and hunting in each respective culture. One fact that I found interesting about the women of the Mundugumor culture is that they lacked a maternal instinct and viewed the idea of child bearing to be repulsive (the book specifically states that Mundugumor women actively dislike children) which is a stark contrast to most of western society in which it is the cultural norm for women to have a high maternal instinct and the actively enjoy the act of bearing children (Kimmel 60-61).

children. As one of Islamic customs, 94% of women have undergone genital mutilation. This was done for pre-martial reasons. Even though this practice was outlawed back in 1994, there are still strong traditions that women and girls get this done.
