Alexandria “Alex” Herring hails from Los Angeles but attended the University of Hawaii, graduating with a degree in communications and anthropology.

Although Alex has never confirmed her age, she graduated in 2014. If she was between the age of 22 and 24 – the average age of college graduates at the time – Alex would now be about 30 years old.

After graduating, Alex held a number of jobs in production, including personal assistant to a film and TV director in LA, and working on music videos. In an interview, Alex revealed she has worked with Fifth Harmony and Calvin Harris, including Harris’ video for How Deep Is Your Love, featuring Gigi Hadid.

Alex is currently associate producer on the Try Guys channel, as revealed in her Instagram bio.

BuzzFeed leads to big break

After working in freelance production for a year, Alex landed a job as production manager at internet media, news and entertainment company BuzzFeed. That’s where she met the Try Guys, who were some of BuzzFeed’s most popular YouTube creators at the time.

Alex started out working in BuzzFeed’s branded video department, as she explained in a Q&A interview with her university: “I was a huge BuzzFeed fan in college so I was absolutely ecstatic to be working there full time. It was also the first time in my career when I was able to work with other female producers, writers and crew members.

“The production industry in general is very male dominated and I was often one of the only women on set while working on music videos and commercials. At BuzzFeed I was lucky to be able to work with wonderful people of different genders and cultural backgrounds.”

Alex ends up in front of the camera after Try Guys hire

Alexandria Herring not only gained her big break while working for BuzzFeed, it also led her to work with the Try Guys. She said in the Q&A: “It was also where I first met the Try Guys and had the opportunity to work on their larger branded series that allowed us to travel all around the country.”

Alex worked for BuzzFeed for three years before joining the Try Guys at their new company, 2nd Try LLC, in summer 2018. That move helped to shape Alex’s career path as she ended up in front of the camera rather than behind it.

After working on the Try Guys as an associate producer, Alex and YB Chang, the channel’s senior video editor, were promoted to offshoot channel Food Babies in July 2019.

YB says in their first video as the Food Babies: “In 2019, there were two ladies at Try Guys who started out eating [Keith Habersberger’s] leftovers. They were known as many things: ‘The Dumpster Divas,’ ‘The Garbage Gals,’ ‘The Leftover Ladies.’ [Now] we are the ‘Food Babies.'”

As the Food Babies, Alex and YB take on food challenges, often alongside members of the Try Guys.

Imagine getting paid to eat tons of tasty food on camera — sounds like a dream, right?

It's the reality for the "other woman" in the Try Guys Ned Fulmer cheating scandal that broke the internet. So why are fans referring to the woman Ned cheated on his wife Ariel with as a Food Baby? What was her true role in the Try Guys' company?

What are the Food Babies? They're a Try Guys spinoff.

The Food Babies videos were essentially a spinoff series in the Try Guys cinematic universe on the company's YouTube channel. YB Chang, the senior video editor for the Try Guys, would partake in various food challenges with her onscreen co-host, Try Guys associate producer Alexandria Herring.

But after Alexandria and her boss Ned were recently caught on video making out at a club, all hell broke loose.

Some fans were distraught: Alexandria had a fiancé, a career as a producer on a popular YouTube channel that raked in millions of views per video, and she was paid to eat food on camera — only to ruin it all to kiss Ned Fulmer?

Since the scandal broke, Ned has been let go from the Try Guys and has admitted to infidelity. His wife made a statement too.

What is Alex Herring's age?

Alexandria has never actually confirmed her age on or off-camera. She made a birthday post on her Instagram in May 2022 thanking her Try Guys family for always making her birthday fun, However, her actual birthday in May and birth year have never been verified.

However, multiple outlets have noted that Alexandria graduated from the University of Hawaii in 2014. Therefore, we can speculate that if she was the typical age of a college graduate (22–24) then she should be 30 or 31 years old now.

To add insult to injury, Alexandria also participated in the "We Tried on Luxury Wedding Dresses for the First Time" video that is now missing from the Try Guys channel. In the video, Alexandria talked about how she had dated her significant other Will Thayer for 10 years before he popped the question.

Although the wedding dress video was taken down, it looks like all of the Food Babies' videos are still on the Try Guys channel, as of this writing.

Is Alexandria still working for the Try Guys?

It appears so. The Try Guys posted an official statement confirming that Ned was no longer working for the company. However, as many fans have already noted online, firing Alexandria could open the Try Guys as a company to a potential workplace discrimination lawsuit.

After all, Ned was Alexandria's superior. Does that completely relinquish Alexandria of all responsibility? Absolutely not. But legally, it makes sense why she hasn't been fired as the Try Guys's associate producer.

Alexandria has yet to make a public statement. However, it appears that she's limited comments on her Instagram posts. Her ex-fiancé has also removed photos of her from his Instagram (she still has pictures of them together on hers).

All we want to know is if Ariel Fulmer will still participate in Try Wives videos, whether she divorces or stays with Ned. As a Try Guys fan on Twitter noted, "She's our wife now."

    Bathing a newborn baby - My Alexandria

    07/11/2022 18:45:471 views admin

    In this article we will consider the general rules for washing and bathing healthy newborns and children under one year old, since caring for sick babies and older children differs in a number of features. nine0007

    Baby's first bath

    Most pediatricians do not recommend immersing a newborn in water until the umbilical wound has healed. Instead, it is wiped with a damp sponge, washing and washing regularly.

    Approximately from 2-4 weeks of age they switch to common baths.

    Frequency of bathing

    According to international hygienic standards, newborns and children of the first months of life are washed using detergents no more than 1-2 times a week, and washed and washed as needed. But, if we are talking about health-improving swimming in clean water, then such a procedure can be carried out daily. nine0007

    At the same time, in cool weather, the frequency of ablutions can be reduced, in hot weather, on the contrary, increased.


    Do not wash your baby with soap more often than recommended, and generally create a sterile environment for him.

    • First, detergents dry out the skin and strip away the natural lubricant that protects baby's skin from harsh environmental conditions.
    • Secondly, according to the "hygiene theory", the connection between the excessive sterility of the children's environment and the tendency of babies to allergic and other diseases has already been proven. nine0079

    Bathing container

    Doctors differ on this point. Some advocate an individual baby bath, while others insist that a large bath is both more convenient and healthier.

    Both options have advantages and disadvantages, the main thing to remember is that any container for water procedures must be perfectly clean.

    In the shared bath, you can use a bathing circle for children.

    Bath water temperature for babies

    For a healthy baby, there is no need to boil the water, but you can install filters on the taps to reduce chlorination of the water, and also, at first, add a weak solution of potassium permanganate to the water. nine0007

    For the first baths of babies, water with a temperature of 36-37°C, but not higher, is ideal.

    Some pediatricians advise further reducing it to 28 or even 24 degrees, lowering it by 1 degree every 2-3 weeks, others recommend rinsing the child at the end of the event with cooler water than a bath from the very beginning.

    In any case, the water should not be too hot or cold, and the bathing area should not be too parky and hot, an air temperature of 22-24°C is sufficient. nine0007

    Time and duration of bathing

    Children are usually bathed before the last evening meal, but there are no hard and fast rules.

    If after water procedures the child is overexcited and starts to “walk”, then it is better to transfer them to any other time of the day.

    The only rule that should be strictly observed is to bathe the child before and not after eating.

    The length of stay in the water depends on the age and mood of the baby: in the first month 2-7 minutes are enough, in the second and later up to 10-15, by 6 months the duration can be increased to half an hour, but most of the time will be spent on games and physical exercises . nine0005 Things to prepare in advance

    • water thermometer;
    • a diaper or towel - they are placed on the bottom of the tub;
    • special baby detergents;
    • fresh diaper;
    • oil or powder - to treat skin folds after bathing;
    • soft terry towel;
    • cotton balls - for drying ears;
    • clean clothes.

    Support in the water

    In the shared bath, you need to support your head - put one hand under the back of the head, the other under the chin, so that only the face remains above the water. The ears may be in the water. nine0007

    In a small bath, the head is placed on the forearm, and the hand is supported under the armpits, while the child is washed with the free hand.

    Bathing steps

    1. remove jewelry and watches from hands, wash hands with soap;
    2. undress the baby and allow him to get used to the room temperature - 1-2 minutes;
    3. conduct a short massage session and a gymnastic warm-up - no longer than 7-10 minutes;
    4. if necessary, wash the child under running water;
    5. gently submerge the baby in the water while constantly talking or singing to him; nine0079
    6. move him around the tub from edge to edge, stimulating him to push off the walls with his legs, first on his back, then on his stomach.
    7. Wash
    8. from neck to crotch. Wash your head last, protecting the baby's eyes from soap suds;
    9. Take the baby out of the water and douse it with cooler water prepared in advance. Assistance from a second adult may be needed at this stage;
    10. wrap the child in a towel and pat dry first the head and then the body. nine0079
    11. blot the ears with cotton balls, but not the ear canals;
    12. pay special attention to the folds, which must be thoroughly dried and only then, if necessary, lubricated with children's cosmetics;
    13. dress the child, feed and put to bed.

    The question of a headdress after a bath is open: some experts are strongly in favor of caps, others are against.

    Obviously, parents should take into account the situation in the house: in cold weather, a cap may be needed, in hot weather it is unlikely. nine0007

    Absolutely not!

    • use detergents and cosmetics from unknown manufacturers;
    • dry babies' hair with a hair dryer;

    Benefits of water procedures

    • Movements in the water, firstly, improve the child's health, and secondly, stimulate his appetite and sleep.
    • Swimming is an effective basis not only for the physical, but also for the intellectual development of the baby, during active movements in the water, his vestibular apparatus develops, and, for example, spatial thinking. nine0079
    • It is impossible to dispute the effectiveness of water hardening of healthy children.
    • Water procedures have a beneficial effect on the nervous system and in warm water, as a rule, even an overexcited child relaxes and calms down perfectly;
    • Being in a humid environment stimulates the cleaning of the respiratory system, from the lungs to the nasopharynx;
    • While swimming, a newborn and mother inevitably come into physical contact with each other, which is extremely useful in the first months of life on a psychological and emotional level. This is especially important if the young mother works and she does not have many opportunities to take the child in her arms. nine0079


    All manipulations during bathing must be carried out calmly and confidently, since the mood of the baby will depend on the condition of the mother (parents), and whether he will enjoy and benefit from water procedures, and whether he will fall in love with them.
