When I first saw a picture of a baby wearing a Beyonce-inspired lace front wig — this was back in December of 2009 — I found myself disturbed by the idea. Mostly, because the mother said, “It’s never too early for my baby to start looking glamorous like Beyonce!” which I thought was ridiculous. One of our commenters described the look as “a shrunken head with a baby’s body still attached,” an incredibly accurate description. After my indignation wore off, I found myself returning to the picture many times the following week and asking myself: Why is it wrong put a wig on a baby? I couldn’t really come up with a solid reason.  Keep reading »

Model Files, y'all
Watch this baby!

If you’re looking for a good way to kill some time this weekend between BBQs and beach trips, try this web series ”Model Files,” which features real-life casting agent Preston Chaunsumlit lightly skewering the modelling industry and casting process. This is a standout from Season 1, featuring a bevy of adorable, edgy babies. I’ve watched it at least three times, and it still cracks me up. Check it out!

couple lets starbucks customers name their baby

I’ve done a lot of questionable things inside of a Starbucks, usually involving an uncontrollable bout of hanger, but these people really take the cake. (A slice of iced lemon pound cake, that is.) Jennifer James and Mark Dixon of West Haven, Connecticut, are letting Starbucks customers choose their baby name. Dixon works in downtown New Haven and the couple frequents a Starbucks near the New Haven Green. Apparently a lot. So much so that they placed paper cups near the registers asking customers to cast a vote for their child’s birth name: “Help us chose our son’s (first) name, Jackson or Logan.” Customers voted on the names given, but also added write-ins, including Chaz, Webster, Lincoln and Jebediah. But ultimately, 1,800 voters at Starbucks have spoken and they have chosen Logan as the name. Little Logan Jackson Dixon is due in September. There’s no word yet on whether they’ll outsource other parenting decisions — cloth diapers or disposables! breastfeeding or formula! — to Frappuccino drinkers as well.

Naptime, feeding time … final exam? For Rebecca Mabrey, 25, of Jacksonville, Florida, that was how her and her 10-month-old baby’s afternoon was going to play out. But she was denied entrance to her final exam at Florida State College for bringing the kiddo along.

Mabrey argued that the exam fell right between her baby’s naptime and feeding time, so she felt that she had no choice but to bring her kid along to breastfeed. (Her husband was unable to watch the kid.) Florida State College did not agree: in an email, they told her children under 16 are not allowed on campus in order to maintain an environment that is conducive to learning. The school also added  they were not in violation of Florida’s maternal and infant health care law on breastfeeding because “this is not a prohibition of breastfeeding an infant.” In other words, Mabrey would be allowed to breastfeed her baby during the exam — if only kids were allowed.

Baby Hair Contest Winner Accused Of Wearing A Wig

This is a story about babies in wigs! My most favorite topic there is. As I mentioned previously, if I ever have a baby, it will be made to wear a variety of wigs, depending on my/its mood. I don’t care if you think that’s strange, it’s what I’ll need to do to ensure that I am the best parent I can be. Anyhow, I am here to tell you about what is being called an “epic baby hair scandal.” The very best kind of scandal there is!

The blog Mommy Shorts held a photo contest for “Most Epic Head of Baby Hair,” and the winner, Layla, dubbed “Baby Annette Funicello,” was accused by sore loser mommies on Facebook of wearing a wig.  Layla’s mother was outraged by the accusation and took to the social media site to defend her baby’s epic hair.

A Steaming, Hot Mug O’ Baby Coming Right Up

I don’t usually get too into babies/animals/baby animals, but fuck it, I’m a human being. I like babies in wigs, owls with mops and things with fluffy faces sometimes. I’m adding babies in mugs to the list of approved cute things. The “baby mugging” meme was started by Mommy Shorts as a way to help people heal after the Boston Bombings. I don’t know about you, but these pictures are healing me. You can mug your baby too (that sounds wrong) and post it with the #babymugging tag.[The Daily Dot]

Oh, you were thinking of naming your son “Anal,” and you live in New Zealand? Too bad! The country’s Internal Affairs department vetoed the name, along with 76 others, claming they were inappropriate, bizarre or offensive. A sampling of some of the verboten names?

He Plays All The Instruments

Really, what’s the point of having a baby if he won’t star in his very own viral videos? This is Quentin Rex, son of music lover Joey Angerone, who bravely lets his toddler play with instruments and then layers them together into Quentin’s very own jam. And Quentin’s even got a rocker boy fauxhawk to complete the look. You can watch Quentin’s first music video, this time back when he was still sucking on a binky, here. My ovaries are throbbing to the beat. [Laughing Squid]

In Case You Weren’t Already Terrified About Childbirth, Meet The Woman Who Gave Birth To Two Sets of Identical Twins At Once

Tressa and Manuel Montalvo had a huge bundle of joy delivered to them this past Valentine’s Day — Tressa gave birth to two sets of identical twins. That’s right, not quadruplets, though there are technically four babies, but two sets of identical twins. At once. What are the odds of something like this happening? Really, really slim. Around 1 in 800,000 births are quadruplets. About 1 in 70 million are born as two sets of identical twins. The babes, named Ace, Blaine, Cash and Dylan (yup, ABCD), were delivered prematurely at 31 weeks and are still in intensive care, but should be home soon.

The two sets of twins will join Tressa and Manuel’s first son, who is two-and-a-half. I won’t pretend to be super excited about ever getting pregnant (childbirth really freaks me out), but this may just send me over the edge. That is one too many sets of twins for me. [NPR]
