Black Parents Confused When They Give Birth To White, Blond Baby

A black Nigerian couple got quite the shock when wife Angela Ihegboro gave birth to a baby … who is a white, blond-haired, blue-eyed girl. The birth left both parents speechless for several minutes, before the father, Ben, broke the silence with, “What the flip?” What the flip, indeed! Scientists have yet to come up with a solid answer, but have narrowed it down to three theories. Genetics experts believe that baby Nmachi’s differences are a result of a gene mutation, a long-term dormant gene, or a mutated version of an albino gene condition. Regardless of what science figures out, the Ihegboros already have their answer. “She’s a miracle baby,” said Angela. Spoken like a proud mama. [NY Post] Keep reading »

“Drunk Babies” Ad Campaign: Hilarious Or All Sorts Of Wrong?

L’universe de Chocolate has a new ad campaign to promote its Chocolate with Whisky truffles. No, it’s not a scantily clad woman on a bed or a happy couple enjoying a truffle while walking arm in arm. It’s a bunch of “drunk babies.” Like this little guy, who looks like he passed out in his car seat after popping 20 of those suckers. Initially, I laughed. But then I felt kind of bad about it. After the jump, some more “drunk babies.” See what you think. Genius advertising or totally inappropriate? [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

The Top 100 Girl Names Of The Year Are … Weird

I consider myself quite the name game-changer by having an “i” instead of a “y” at the end of “Kelli.” But I have nothing on the crop of kiddies that we can expect in the next nine months. The baby name website Nameberry.com recently released their list of the top 100 girl names searched for during the first half of this year. Now, Nameberry is different from the annual U.S. list of most popular baby names, because it is based on searches and not actual birth records. Also, the site is open to all countries, with the U.S. making up a third of the queries. Regardless, their list shows signs of a new generation filled with some truly bizarre names. Golden oldies like Lauren, Sarah, and Rachel have been exiled from the list and replaced with names like Esme. Hello, “Twilight” effect! And that’s not the only search that appears to have pop culture-influenced. It’s no doubt “Lost” fans who put Evangeline in the top 50; and could peeps be naming their baby girls Quinn after the character on “Glee“?

But these names are tame compared to some of the oddities that made the list. After the jump check out the 10 titles we thought were the weirdest. Keep reading »

Not A Joke: Cynthia Rowley To Make Designer Diapers

It’s official: Fashion diapers are now a trend. First Huggies came onto the scene with their hipster-fied denim diapers. Now news has just broke that Cynthia Rowley will collaborate with Pampers to design a line of the baby panties, to be sold at Target come mid-July. Her second collab with the mass retailer, this one sounds like high fashion for four-month-olds. According to a company statement, “the pastel designs includes madras, stripes and printed ruffles suited specifically to babies and toddlers.” Cute? Or a sign of an impending designer diaper boom?

British Magazine Writer Says Breastfeeding Is “Creepy” And I Kind Of Agree

Uh oh, mommy-blogger kerfluffle! The deputy editor of the UK’s Mother and Baby magazine, Kathryn Blundell, has ruffled some feathers after describing breastfeeding as “creepy.” In a recent article in Mother and Baby, Blundell wrote that she bottle-fed her baby because “seeing your teeny, tiny innocent baby latching on to where your lover has been feels, well, a little creepy.”

You know, I actually agree with her. Keep reading »

Baby’s First Credit Card: A Pink Teether

It’s never too early for baby’s first debt reduction program, right? This rubbery credit card teether by Heelarious, the folks who sell high-heels for babies, carries the name “Ima Spender.” Thankfully anyone who drools on this toy is too young to read. Seems like a waste of $10, though: everybody knows babies like to chew on your car keys and then drop them in the toilet. [Heelarious.com via Feministing] Keep reading »

The Daily Ovulation: A Baby And A Tortoise


This video of the extraordinary friendship between toddler Lulu and tortoise Leonard is stupid cute. I especially love that it’s set against a song from “Pete’s Dragon.” God, that movie was so awesome. But can’t get over the fact that Lulu is bound to catch salmonella at some point. It’s not right to bathe with a tortoise. It’s just not. Love hurts. Best to learn that lesson young. [Buzz Feed] Keep reading »

Baby Addiction Is A Real Thing

Listen up, OctoMom: Baby addiction is apparently a real thing. While there is currently no official diagnosis, health professionals are reporting an increase in patients, mostly women, who desperately want to keep having newborns, even when they already have several children. Take U.K. woman Karen Johnston. Eight children was not enough to satisfy her craving for kids. At 54 years old, the self-proclaimed baby addict went through great lengths to have more. I mean, addicts will do anything to get their fix, right? Keep reading »

What Mariah Carey And Nick Cannon Should Name Their Baby

And finally, we are starting to get some answers on which famous ladies are actually pregnant and which just made unfortunate wardrobe decisions involving loose-fitting tops. Yesterday, Alicia Keys announced that—yep—she is in fact preggers. And today, Radar Online has a source that says Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon are indeed having a babe. For Mariah, the speculation began when she (a) plumped up, which many thought could be a sign she was trying hormone therapy for in vitro fertilization, (b) said at an awards show, “Something else very special is on the way!” and (c) dropped out of Tyler Perry’s “For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide.” When Radar called Mariah’s rep for confirmation, instead of denying the pregnancy, she said, “I’m not at liberty to discuss Mariah’s personal life at this time.” Sketchy. But we are very excited for the adorable couple and are happy Mariah is joining the proud camp of hot Hollywood mamas over 40. [Radar]

Mariah has historically picked horrendous names for her movies and albums, and we don’t want to see this baby end up named Butterfly. After the jump, some name suggestions. Keep reading »
