“Drunk Babies” Ad Campaign: Hilarious Or All Sorts Of Wrong?

L’universe de Chocolate has a new ad campaign to promote its Chocolate with Whisky truffles. No, it’s not a scantily clad woman on a bed or a happy couple enjoying a truffle while walking arm in arm. It’s a bunch of “drunk babies.” Like this little guy, who looks like he passed out in hi…

The Top 100 Girl Names Of The Year Are … Weird

I consider myself quite the name game-changer by having an “i” instead of a “y” at the end of “Kelli.” But I have nothing on the crop of kiddies that we can expect in the next nine months. The baby name website Nameberry.com recently released their list of the top 100 girl names searched for…

British Magazine Writer Says Breastfeeding Is “Creepy” And I Kind Of Agree

Uh oh, mommy-blogger kerfluffle! The deputy editor of the UK’s Mother and Baby magazine, Kathryn Blundell, has ruffled some feathers after describing breastfeeding as “creepy.” In a recent article in Mother and Baby, Blundell wrote that she bottle-fed her baby because “seeing your teeny, tiny innocent baby latching on to where your lover has bee…

Baby’s First Credit Card: A Pink Teether

It’s never too early for baby’s first debt reduction program, right? This rubbery credit card teether by Heelarious, the folks who sell high-heels for babies, carries the name “Ima Spender.” Thankfully anyone who drools on this toy is too young to read. Seems like a waste of $10, though: everybody knows babies like to chew…

The Daily Ovulation: A Baby And A Tortoise

This video of the extraordinary friendship between toddler Lulu and tortoise Leonard is stupid cute. I especially love that it’s set against a song from “Pete’s Dragon.” God, that movie was so awesome. But can’t get over the fact that Lulu is bound to catch salmonella at some point. It’s not right to bathe…

Baby Addiction Is A Real Thing

Listen up, OctoMom: Baby addiction is apparently a real thing. While there is currently no official diagnosis, health professionals are reporting an increase in patients, mostly women, who desperately want to keep having newborns, even when they already have several children.

This Baby Smokes 40 Cigarettes A Day

Meet Ardi Rizal. He is a smoking baby. He is two. Did I mention that he smokes? He favors a specific brand and throws a temper tantrum if he doesn’t get his 40 cigarettes a day. I’d think I was making this up if it weren’t for this video, starring Ardi, the smoking baby. He’…

Is Giving Your Baby Pop Rocks Cute Or Cruel?

I’m a big fan of videos featuring other people’s kids trying something new for the first time and laughing about it. Like that little boy who was filmed by his dad after a trip to the dentist and he was all high on whatever they gave him and was kind of tripping out –…

Trailer Park: “Iron Man 2,” “Mother And Child,” “Please Give,” “The Good Heart,” “Babies”

There’s no reason to plead with you to see a movie this week because for once, there is a whole lot of awesomeness, coming to a theater near you. If you’re not planning on seeing “Iron Man 2,” you are going to feel super left out at the water cooler on Monday. It’s simply un-America…

Breaking News: Boobs Are For Breastfeeding, Too!

Shocking, I know, but I had to break the news some time: Our fabulous funbags are actually biologically designed to feed hungry babies, not just to look tasty in a Body by Victoria C-cup. Alas, some Neanderthals can’t handle such a bombshell about breasts — namely, folks in corporate America who’ll do everything from tweet…

Mamas, Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up To Have Zakeez Complexes

By now, we all know what happens to baby boys who had nannies while growing up. (If you don’t, read all about it.) So the big question is, what happens to babies who’re exposed to big, body-less stuffed hands? [BuzzFeed]…

How A One-Night Stand Turned Me Into A Published Author

I’ve got a beautiful little boy who turns 6 next week. I got him through rather unconventional means. Well actually, the means were fairly conventional — sex in a traditional position, if memory serves — but entirely accidental.

I had a one-night stand when I was 39, with a guy I’d met at a…

Girl Talk: Can Friendships Derail When Babies Come On Board?

The email perplexed me:
 Joanne, Sorry to sound pathetic, but have I done something to offend you?
 — Michelle*There was no clue, no context. Really, was I on my own here to deconstruct what the hell Michelle, a college buddy from 12 years back, was referring to? How could she have done anything offensive whe…

What Is Teething Bling?

I’m not a mom, and the thought of becoming one scares the crap out of me. And here’s yet one more reason motherhood freaks me out—”teething bling.” Necklaces with donut-shaped pendants made specifically to go in your baby’s mouth when she’s teething.
