Spa Castle made me feel like a Queen.

Tuesday, May 18th, 2010

So went to Spa  Castle in College Point Queens, right over the Whitestone Bridge. It’s such a vacation going there.  I”ll tell ya- it’s like Korean bath house meets Disney World.  It’s sparkling clean, relaxing and a fun family destination.  We spent 4 hours, which is our typical “run” when we are there. I take the girls and go to the hotbaths, off the women’s locker room.  We go from pool to pool, jet to jet.  Then we usually head upstairs to saunas (all different kinds). M loves the LED light sauna (different lights, different moods), J bounces from one to the other and I like the cold sauna.

We usually do lunch- where I stay away from the fries and sushi and head for the salads and fruit. Then we head upstairs/outside. There are hot pools and jets and massage showers.  IT’S GREAT.  It was beautiful out so it was glorious to be up there.  Highly recommend this place for the family or for your own escape.

Promoting breast feeding information, support and services to moms (and families).

Did you Know: Skin to Skin baby wearing keep babies warmer, calmer, babies can hear their mom’s heartbeat, milk supply is improved and initiates a positive start to breast feeding, bonding, feeding on cue.

Did you know: Getting off to a good start at breastfeeding means nursing at least 10 times in a 24 hour period.

Did you know: When your baby is in REM sleep (rapid eye movement, when baby is not deeply asleep) is a great time to nurse baby.  This will happen beofre baby cries.  Sometimes when baby is crying they are a bit to frantic to latch on properly.

Baby opening mouth, rooting, making sucking sounds are all cues for feeding time.
