Awesome Obstetrician Welcomes Babies Into The World By Singing

Singing Doctor
"Welcome To A Wonderful World"

Dr. Carey Andrew-Jaja, the happiest doctor you’ll ever meet, has delivered about 8,000 babies, and greets most of them with a song. When Andrew-Jaja was in residency, and older physician was in the habit of singing to newborns, and when he retired, he asked Andrew-Jaja to carry on the tradition. He’s been singing to babies ever since, and pausing for the music gives everyone in the delivery room a moment to soak the arrival of a new life. “Sometimes the pregnancy has been difficult, the delivery has been complex and yet most of the time out comes this beautiful baby and it’s a moment when you forget that fear,” he told ABC News. He says that when he sings to the babies, he’s singing to a future important person. “So, to me, it’s a wonderful thing in my hand, the miracle of life. The rest of it is that’s it’s a beautiful world we live in. You forget about all the crisis going on everywhere, for a moment, when you see that miracle of life in front of you.” Too sweet!

Babies With Eyebrows Are The Best Kind Of Babies

What’s the point of having a baby if not to draw scraggly, cartoon villain eyebrows on her face? (Yeah, I know there are other reasons to have a baby. Indulge me on this one.) Thanks to all the parents willing to put  black eyeliner little Connor or Emma’s big bald noggin and share it with the rest of us through the Instagram hashtag #BabyEyebrows. But I think that unibrowed baby from “The Simpsons” deserves a little more credit here.  [Instagram.com/lawrentabor via Laughing Squid]

Watch This Couple’s Taylor Swift-Inspired Baby Announcement

We Are Having, Having, Having Another Baby

When Nate and Erica Eaton found out they were expecting a second child, they were shocked. They figured their friends and family would be surprised too, so they put together a video that switched up the lyrics to Taylor Swift’s “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” to share the good news in a this clever video. If the quirky announcement they made for their first pregnancy is any indication (Nate is a newscaster for WRIC news in Richmond, Virgina), they must be really fun parents! In my humble opinion, the real star of this video their adorable baby, who pretty much steals the show. [Just Jared]

Another Day, Another Mom Kicked Out Of A Store For Breastfeeding

Wioletta Komar, a 25-year-old mom of two, is demanding an apology from the retailer Sports Direct after she was forced from of their stores for breastfeeding her son. Komar was waiting for her father, who was to trying on a t-shirt, when she began to nurse her baby son, Daniel. “My son started crying, so I wanted to feed him. I sat on the bench near the shoe rack,” she told UK’s Daily Mail.

Then, an employee of the Nottingham, England shop approached Komar and told her that she could not nurse in the store due to “company policy.” The employee suggested she head to McDonald’s, which had a “baby and mother” room. Other customers were disturbed by the situation and helped Komar push her stroller outside. “It made me feel very upset. I was shaking and I didn’t know what to do. I knew that I was allowed to be there, but what could I do?” Komar said. I can’t help but think that any woman would react the same way to such a stressful situation! Komar made her way outside and into the rain to finish feeding Daniel, where she couldn’t help but cry. “I can’t understand why a baby has to be punished for being hungry and why I need to feel like a criminal when I just want to feed my baby son,” she said.

Kiss, Kiss

Not much is rough about being a cute baby … except when the family pets want to lick your face. And lick your face. And lick your face some more. This poor kiddo is not feeling it, but people off-camera (Mom and Dad, perhaps) keep coaching the bulldog puppy to go to town. Don’t think they didn’t know they had a viral video on their hands! I want to go give this poor child a bath. [YouTube]

New parents: don’t have enough baby pictures? Thought not. There actually might be some minutes of the day in which your child’s every move is not being documented for posterity and/or Facebook.  But fret not: now your baby can take pictures of herself with a new app called — wait for it — Baby Selfie. The app makes silly noises and displays cartoon animals onscreen, which surprise your baby while your smartphone’s camera snaps away. “We capture your baby’s reaction in unique, unexpected photos that you’ll love to share,” explains the 99-cent app’s description on GooglePlay.
