A few weeks ago, I wrote about some really gross baby snapsuits that were targeted specifically at female babies and read “I hate my thighs.” Now, Twitter’s found them — but not on Wrybaby’s website. Nope, they’re at the NYU campus store. … READ MORE »

Another country making leaps and bounds over the US when it comes to supporting mothers? Insert my not-at-all-shocked face here. The Brazilian city of São Paulo recently approved a bill that will fine people $150 for shaming women who breastfeed in public. That’s right.

Oh, the scent of dumb bullshit in the morning. Today, it’s this adorable onesie from Wrybaby that reads “I hate my thighs” and is presumably targeted at baby girls.

When I was about five years-old, I asked my dad if I was as good a singer as Billie Holiday. He told me I was not, and I cried quite a bit over this. I was reasonably sure, at that age, that my parents were supposed to believe that I, Robyn Elyse Pennacchia, was the… READ MORE »

I’ve been hearing about Lifetime’s new reality show, “Born in the Wild,” for some time now.

This season’s hottest accessory is something that I don’t know because I’ve paid zero attention to Fashion Week, thanks to all these dumb parents who can’t keep their squalling infants at home.

When it started, I thought it was just a stomach thing. I had probably unwittingly eaten some dairy, my usual digestive foe. But the mild nausea showed no signs of letting up. Two weeks, then three. I couldn’t ignore it anymore. It had gone from a minor inconvenience to an omnipresent feeling, lurking deep down… READ MORE »

A big part of the reason why I don’t want to have kids is that I think that this is probably one of the most dull times in history to be a kid. I look at those plastic playgrounds with only those diaper-looking swings, and no merry go-rounds or see-saws or legit slides (sorry, but… READ MORE »
