Rock-A-Bye Baby: Hookup Music For The Kiddies!

When it’s sexy time, it’s also time to take off your clothes and put on some sweet tunes — like the Pixies, right? Cause you know when I put on the Surfer Rosa record it is time to get busy. Sadly, now my hip, hot record collection favorites are being marketed towards new parents so they can bring the classics of classic rock to their kids. Awwww…ugh. [Simcha, you know you think that baby with the headphones is a-dor-a-ble. -- Editor] Rockabye Baby is a company dedicated to turning the rock, metal, and pop songs you like to do it to into precious little lullabies. That’s right, the same jams that put you in the mood for baby makin’ have been remade for your little bundle of joy. Creepy! When the album you lost your virginity to is on the list (i.e. Nirvana’s Nevermind) it just seems like another sign that you’re are supposed to be squeezing out lil’ screamers by now. But alas, for those actually with mini-me’s the music series features great artists like Led Zeppelin, No Doubt, Bjork, Radiohead and yes, even Metallica, Tool, and Queens of the Stone Age all done over again soft and sweet for nap time. Nicole Richie and Scott Baio spin them for their celebuspawn, because after all, it’s never to early to teach your kid how to headbang to a xylophone heavy rendition of Nine Inch Nails’ The Hand That Feeds.

    Junk Food Is Bad For Babies

    If you’re pregnant, try to eat healthy because eating junk food is bad for your baby. Duh. A study published in The Journal of Physiology found that female rats that were fed a diet of chips, cheese, muffins, and other processed foods throughout pregnancy and lactation had offspring that were overweight at birth and were born with a taste for junk food, kind of like babies whose moms used crack while they were in the womb. Female offspring were particularly affected by the mother’s diet. And don’t think this just applies to rodents: “Humans share a number of fundamental biological systems with rats, so there is good reason to assume the effects we see in rats may be repeated in humans,” said Neil Strickland, a professor at the Royal Veterinary College in London.

    Made Up Song Saves Pregnant Mom’s Life

    A three-year-old saved her pregnant mom’s life by calling 911 and giving the dispatcher details about her house and other landmarks all because her mom had made up a song called “911 green” that the toddler learned the week before. (The title comes from the fact that to call 911 on a cell phone, you have to press the three numbers and then the green button. From what I’ve found, the lyrics of the song are simply, “911 green, 911 green.” But there might be a remix coming out in the next month or so.) [AP] Keep reading »

    Mind Of Man: Five Things About Pregnancy That Will Eff You Up

    You’ve heard about the mood swings, cravings, mania, and general awfulness your wife will be “blessed” with throughout her nine-month journey to motherhood. Here are five things your parent-friends will never tell you about pregnancy, probably because they’d just assume forget about them altogether:

    Miscarriage. It seems to be almost inevitable. We’re not sure of the statistics, but an unscientific survey we did of three friends showed that every woman in the world will have at least one miscarriage. As a guy, you’d think that your rub-some-dirt-on-it-and-get-back-in-the-game attitude that you learned from your high school football coach (who was banging one of your classmates by the way) would be helpful. It’s not. Let her sister/mom/friends console her because you suck at it. Meanwhile, you’ll have some extra time to create a new, winning game plan. Keep reading »
