Protect Your Baby

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of CryoCell International. All opinions are 100% mine.

When my son was born, there was nothing that I would not do for him.  From that moment on, my priorities took a completely different perspective.  His needs became more important than my needs.  It became my job to provide for him, protect him, and keep him safe and healthy.  I think that most parents would feel the same way.
My son was born nearly 17 years ago.  In 1994 when we were going to the child birth classes and meeting with my wife's doctor, nobody mentioned the idea of banking our baby's umbilical cord blood to prevent against potential future diseases.
These days, I think the option is being presented to more parents.  I was on a business trip last weekend with a coworker.  We were talking about banking cord blood, and she told me that when her daughter was born three years ago that they asked her and her husband if they wanted to save the cord blood.
The umbilical cord blood is rich in your baby's stem cells.  By banking those cells, you can help to insure your child's future health against diseases that may require bone marrow transplants.  Stem cells are much less invasive.  You can get a lot more detail about the benefits of banking cord blood stem cells at
We never know what the future holds for our kids.  Medical breakthroughs through stem cell research hold the potential to help in unlimited ways.  I do not know if the future holds any breakthroughs for autism but you never know.  Had it been offered to me at the time, I would have looked into banking the cord blood of my son.
Thankfully these days, the option is out there for parents.  If you are expecting a little one in your future, you should try to get as much info as you can at  Right now, if you request free info at their site, they will also give you a free belly bag tote bag.

  1. I can feel your protective instinct, I can see myself in you with our 8 month old. Your post is interesting and the first time I heard of such despite being in the medical field.
