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?

Yes, somebody wanted to name their child the punctuation symbol for “period.” Keep reading »

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]

Your little nugget still shits her diapers, but that doesn’t mean she still isn’t being prepared for the most important role she’ll ever play in life: future bride. It’s never too early to start thinking about that ring on your finger. Seriously, Zulily.com, what are you thinking? A crystal-encrusted onesie advertising a newborn baby as a bride-to-be is all the proof I need the wedding industrial complex has gone haywire. [Jezebel]

 

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]

Saudi Cleric Suggests Baby Girls Wear Burqas To “Protect” Them From Sexual Assault

A Saudi Arabian cleric raised eyebrows over his WTF suggestion on a TV program six months ago that baby girls should be covered head-to-toe in burqas to protect them from sexual assault. It is one thing to suggest, however ludicrously, that veiled women prevent men from being tempted to rape (because we know men are all rapists and must be thwarted at every turn, amirite?), though I obviously don’t agree with forcing or coercing women to wear the burqa. But the mere suggestion that little baby girls might be lascivious if they’re not completely covered? Now, that’s just disgusting. Sheikh Abdullah Daoud’s “burqas for babies” idea has been criticized by other Saudis, who say he is making the Islamic faith look bad. I’m inclined to agree! [Daily Mail UK]

Kim Kardashian’s Most Important Pregnancy Essentials

Woohoo! The Illuminati is having a baby, you guys, and I’m so stoked! Yep, the axis of evil (and fun, so much fun) heretofore known as Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, now the singular Kimye, got knocked up. E! Online was kind enough to present a sort of gift guide of Kim’s maternity must-haves for a stylish and comfortable nine months (or however long Damien must incubate), and I got kind of jealous so I had to go and make my own. Get the details on the stuff I think is perfect for Kim’s pregnancy after the jump! Also, if anyone could send me Kimye’s address that would be great, just so I can get their gifts to them ASAP. Thanks in advance, everybody! Keep reading »

Twilight vampire reborn doll

… wrote no one ever.

We’ve written about “reborn dolls” before: they are extremely lifelike baby dolls which are often purchased by women who have suffered miscarriages and/or had abortions. Often women dress them up in outfits and give them names. The dolls are usually pretty creepy-looking on their own, but this vampire baby reborn doll for sale on Etsy.com is gives me extra chills.

Put That Baby To Work!

I’m still undecided about whether or not I want to have kids, but sometimes I see things — a seahorse costume, a wig, and I’m like, It’s done, I’m reproducing just so I can put this thing on my baby!

Baby Mops is one of those things. Part adorable footsie pajama, part ingenious cleaning supply, this is most adorable, parental multitasking device I’ve ever encountered. Baby Mops allows the baby to clean up messes while developing motor skills. Yes. Just YES. [Laughing Squid]
