explains Babywearing, how to do it and what could be the best way to do it for you and your baby. "Wearing your baby is one of the best things you can do to promote healthy bonding and attachment between you and your little one. Did you know that babies that are worn cry less and are easier to soothe? There are four main types of soft baby carriers: wraps, mei tais, slings and pouches. All are excellent for different types of carries and or different aged children."

Brooklyn Welcomes Romeo Beckham!
The stuffy old Daily Telegraph
heartily approves of Romeo
, the name Victoria and David Beckham have given to their new baby
, a brother to Brooklyn
. So now an extra throne must be added to the happy parents' atrocious, unmissable website
. I would have let this foolishness pass, had I not noticed with alarm that there already exists a bottomless resource
catering to those who insist
on giving their offspring Shakespearean names. If this is a trend, how bad can it get?[Please, no suicide jokes.
Or, to put it in Shakespeare's own words, from Romeo and Juliet
no less, is this a case of "What's in a name? That which we call a rose by another name would smell as sweet"[Act ii, sc.2
] or, rather, of "the children of an idle brain begot of nothing but vain fantasy"?[Act i, sc.4

"I just can't believe that I'm having a baby."
The yearbook at Pinellas Park High School this year included a 12 page spread about teen pregnancy and highlights some students and their experiences with staying in school while pregnant. Some see it a step in educating students about the issue, others see it as a glorification of teen pregnancy. Having had an older sister almost not finish high school because of a pregnancy, I'm all for education, but is the yearbook the appropriate place?

This is just disturbing.
A baby boy "was stolen from his slain mother's womb by another woman, who passed the baby off as her own until she killed herself under police scrutiny." The references to similar cases at the bottom of the article, especially the one involving the car keys, are quite messed up as well.
The content is somewhat graphic - be advised.
