mmmm - cod liver oil!

when people learn that odin loves to start his day with a serving of cod liver oil mixed with juice, we usually get quizzical looks - people still give their kids that icky stuff that grandmothers used to force down the gullets of their kids?

maybe grandma was on to something. cod liver oil is a fantastic source of omega fatty acids which research has shown to be important for brain development.

and even more interestingly for us, babies born before 33 weeks gestation have insufficient levels of DHA and fish oil for preemies may boost cognition.

carlson makes odin's con liver oil of choice and is tested to be free of detectable levels of mercury, cadmium, lead and PCB's.

if you ask him, he really will tell you that it tastes pretty darned good.

and, of course, it's perfectly perfect that odin's favorite cod liver oil would be norwegian :-)

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
