Beating The Clock: 30-Something Women Have Babies On The Brain

Ask almost any childless women in her 30s to name five things that have been on her mind lately, and there’s a good chance she’ll mention her biological clock. It may not be the first thing she names — her career, the economy, saving for a house, her parents’ health, the health of her relationship, finishing her dissertation, fitting back into her skinny jeans, and finding someone to share her life with may be getting more of her attention; but for a vast majority of us, the idea of having kids is something we think about nearly as much, if not more, than almost everything else. After all, our biological clocks and the issues of when, whether, and how long we have left to procreate determine so many other variables in our life. And for those of us who wait until our 30s — a quickly growing number of us these days — it’s a decision we face when the stakes are especially high. Keep reading »

Even Babies Are Biting Into The Vampire Trend

I don’t care if I don’t have any babies yet, I’m buying this vampire teeth pacifier for my future kiddie. Sure, baby time is still a couple years away, but do any of you actually see the vampire trend ending any time in the next decade? And even if it does magically move on before I have kids, a baby isn’t going to care if she’s sporting a passé style. You know what else she won’t care about? That people are pointing and laughing.

When Boobs And Babies Don’t Mix

Boobs and babies don’t mix … their boobs, that is. I’ve seen enough pasties for kids and stripper poles for toddlers to get stabby about anything that sexualizes an impressionable kiddo. So I’m not too keen on the breast cancer awareness tees for little girls that say “Find A Cure! Before I Grow Boobies.” Clever T-shirt, yes. But as the aunt of three pre-school aged girls, I feel weird about anything that could draw a creepy person’s attention to their non-existent “boobies.” (FWIW, I’d balk if my nephew had a tee shirt that said “Testicular Cancer: Find A Cure Before My Balls Drop!” too.) A pink ribbon or something would be just fine to raise awareness, thanks. What do you think: Are these T-shirts kinda icky or are they cute? [Zazzle.com] Keep reading »

Hot Male Models And Totally Adorable Babies

I’ve got four words for you, ladies: male models and babies. The male models are hot. The babies are totally cute. It’s like two great tastes that go great together for your eye-candy pleasure. This fine footage was shot behind the scenes at a shoot for the “Baby Daddy” layout in the September issue of Out magazine. (You can check out the snaps here and here.) The male clothes hangers photographed by Matthias Vriens McGrath include Noah Mills, Leandro Maeder, and Oraine Barrett, and I can safely say there is not one among them that I would kick out of bed for eating crackers. Sure, the clothes are fine, but are the babies and the boys for sale, too? [The Cut] Keep reading »

Babies Are The New It Bag, Even For Men

It’s been a new day, a new preggers Hollywood actress and/or model lately. In fact, sometimes it seem like babies are the new It bag of choice for some women—who needs Chanel or Chloe when you can tote around a living, breathing Hermes (Hello, Kelly Rutherford)? And now the men folk are getting in on it. Out magazine’s “Baby Daddy” spread features not only some of the most in-demand male models around, but also … babies as props! Screw designer murses—this is all about the well-dressed man and his genetically blessed kid. Check out some of the photos, after the jump. [Design Scene] Keep reading »

Nadya Suleman, Eat Your Heart Out: Woman Pregnant With 12 Babies

We love us some beh-behs as much as the next twentysomething woman with a ticktockticktock sound coming out of her ovaries. But this sounds like a bad story from The National Enquirer: a woman in Gafsa, Tunisia, is preggo with 12 babies, thanks to fertility treatments. Her identity has not been revealed yet, but she is said to be a married teacher who turned to fertility docs after several miscarriages. Thank heavens this baby bonanza is happening in Tunisia, an unlikely locale for paparazzi to schlep when they’re done camping out outside of Nadya Suleman‘s house. Seriously, wannabe parents and fertility doctors, ENOUGH with the crazy multiple pregnancies already. [Sun UK] Keep reading »

Baby Comes Back From The Dead!

After doctors in Paraguay tried to resuscitate a premature baby for an hour, they gave up and pronounced him dead. They issued a death certificate and put the baby in a box. The baby’s father was carrying the box containing his sons “remains” to the funeral when he heard a small cry. Daddy opened the box and found that his child was breathing. Apparently, the kid’s pulse was so low that the doctor couldn’t detect it. Now, this preemie is back in intensive care, hopefully with a different doc. It sounds like a Stephen King novel, but let’s hope the little guy pulls through. [Guanabee] Keep reading »

A Mother Is Allergic To Her Baby

Right after giving birth to her son, James, new mama Joanne Mackie started finding blisters on her arms and legs. A few days later, she winced whenever anything touched the painful rash and the tiny blisters that had blossomed into painful welts. Joanne was in such agony she could no longer hold her baby and daddy took over. The new mother was stumped, but a trip to the doctor was even more baffling. Joanne was allergic to her baby. The 28-year-old mother suffers from a rare but painful and dangerous skin disease, Pemphigoid Gestationis. Keep reading »

What’s The Link Between Abortion, Miscarriages And Premature Births?

One abortion or miscarriage raises the risk of giving birth to a premature baby by 20 percent, while two abortions or miscarriages raises the same risk by 90 percent, according to Dr. Robbert van Oppenraaij of the Erasmus MC University Medical Center in The Netherlands. Dr. van Oppenraaij presented his findings, which are based on 75 studies about complications during pregnancy between 1980 and 2008, at European Society of Human Production conference in Amsterdam this week.
