Shower Games That Don't Suck

What I have come to realize over the last decade of babypalooza (I’m just at that age, I suppose) is that most of you hate them, too. However, I’m sure someone is reading this and thinking, “No! I love to sniff melted chocolate in diapers! There is nothing I love more than stilted conversations as we carefully avoid saying certain words! I WIN ALL THE CLOTHESPINS.” You have fun with all that shit. Us introverts and antisocial cynics will be over on the other side of the room pretending we don’t

WTF is with the Different Wipes?

Here’s a secret: most of parenthood is just wiping off various body parts and surfaces. Babies and are surprisingly leaky. Then there is postpartum bleeding and accidental milk letdowns. There are specialty wipes formulated for almost every accident, fluid, and germ. I bought a variety for my first baby.

What’s so Great (and Not so Great) About Cloth Diapering

The Internet is Smitten With Giraffe Labor and Delivery Live Feed - NSFW?

An extremely pregnant giraffe named April has stolen the hearts and productivity of the internet. April, a 15-year-old reticulated giraffe, resides at the Animal Adventure Park in Harpursville, NY, where she is due to give birth to her fourth baby any day now.

Prematurity is the gift that keeps on giving. Even if you were lucky enough to escape the NICU with no lingering complications, sometimes issues will crop up much later that leave you wondering if prematurity is rearing its ugly head again. For us, it has been hearing issues. Is it related to prematurity, genetics, or the luck of the draw? No way to tell, though his early arrival did play into our decision to go the route of ear tubes.
