An article in the New York Times discusses a report from researchers at Oxford and the University of Exeter in England that provides evidence that a child’s sex is associated with a mother’s diet.

Pregnant women do not tip over, and researchers say an evolutionary curve has a lot to do with the reason why.

That increases pressure on the spinal column, strains the muscles and generally reduces stability. See the entire article at the New York Times website.
The Squirt baby food dispensing spoon is a new gadget to help feed your toddler. No muss, no fuss. Just fill the bright orange bulb with up to three ounces of baby food, then secure the spoon on the end. A squeeze of the bulb dispenses a bite of food onto the spoon, allowing for one-handed feeding. The spoon also comes with a protective cover so you can throw it in a bag and still have something for the baby to eat while you’re away from home. A great item for new moms and dads!
