A Man Who Is Determined To Breastfeed

Common knowledge says that men can’t breastfeed. But … can they? In a kind of awesome article over at Slate.com, writer Michael Thomsen decided to see if he—a 33-year-old male—could lactate after reading that Charles Darwin said it was possible for men to produce milk and looking up a Bible verse (Numbers 11:12, which reads, “Carry them in your bosom, as a nursing father bears the sucking child”) implying that men breastfeeding was once common.

“Baby-Breeding” Ring Busted In Asia

Anywhere you can find women, you can find people trying to control women’s reproductive capabilities. I write a lot on The Frisky about attempts to deter women from having abortions. But in parts of Asia, there’s a problem that’s quite different: fertile women acting as surrogates who are kept in farm-like conditions for “baby breeding.” Recently, 14 Vietnamese women, including seven who were pregnant, were rescued from an “illegal and inhuman” baby breeding facility in Thailand.

Today In Baby News: A Kid Named “Facebook” And A Wainwright/Cohen Love Child

Congrats to Facebook, which officially has its first namesake. An Egyptian man named his baby girl Facebook Jamal Ibrahim to express his gratitude for the role the social networking site played in the revolution. That is very moving, but we hope the name doesn’t become trendy. I wonder if they’ll call her “Face” or “Book” for short. And more very important baby news after the jump. Keep reading »
