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?

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. Horrifying mental flash-forward: Not only have I lowered my style standards to include…

Would You Put Your Baby In A Pod-Like Case?

The Smart Baby Case pod was designed by Iranian Pouyan Mokhtaran for Samsonite, which tasked designers with developing new and easier ways of traveling with babies. The pod is suitable for everyday travel or disaster scenarios, suggests Mokhtaran, because it has several “safety breath” doors, an air purification unit, a communication system and LED screen,…

The Daily Ovulation: “Babies,” The Movie!

When I saw the trailer for the movie “Babies” — a documentary about four babies living in different parts of the world — before a screening of “Where The Wild Things Are,” my uterus literally started to cry from the overload of cuteness. But then I realized I had just gotten my period and…

French Marie Claire’s Bedazzled Babies

This month, the French edition of Marie Claire ran a spread featuring jewelry with babies as the models. Was this supposed to be a cute idea that turned out ultra creepy? Is that baby wearing a bracelet as an arm cuff? The tagline: “My baby, my treasure … ” [MarieClaire.fr]…

Baby Hair Gel Creeps Us Out

OK, fauxhawks on babies are totally awesome, but this is not: Le Baby hair gel “thickens baby fine hair,” so your little dumplin’ can look just like Gwen Stefani’s son, Zuma Rossdale. Plus, Le Baby doesn’t contain any of those fragrances and polysyllabic chemicals that fretful mommies hate! Gee, I thought I wanted to be…

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…
