7 Latin pride onesies for your baby


There is one article of clothing that no one can pull off better than a baby and that is a onesie. You can call them whatever you want: a onesie, a bodysuit or jumpsuit, but if you ain't a baby, then you ain't going to look as good as a baby in one. The best part is that babies don't even have to accessorize their onesies to look great in them, they were just born to wear them.

My babies are no longer babies and are way past the onesie stage, but one of our favorite editors here at MamásLatinas just had a baby, so being the thoughtful co-worker that I am, I took a virtual shopping trip around the internet to find cute onesies that are perfect for Latino babies and I found some great ones!

Three baby bodies found in rat-infested house of nightmares

This is just horrifying. The bodies of three deceased infants were found yesterday in a rat-infested home in Blackstone, Massachusetts. The dead babies were found just two weeks after child welfare investigators removed four other children from the home due to suspected abuse. Investigators described the condemned home as being filled with rats, bugs, flies and even piles of dirty diapers. Erika Murray, the woman found living in the home, was arrested and is set to be arraigned today. It is sickening to think about innocent children living under these conditions. Why take care of children if you are going to treat them this way?

Twins pay the ultimate price after hospital refuse mom c-section​


Victoria Rexach wasn't even six months pregnant when she went into premature labor on August 28. The 30-year-old was rushed to Richmond University Medical Center in Staten Island where to her surprise and the surprise of those familiar with her medical history, she was told she would be giving birth naturally (i.e. vaginally). The thing is that Rexach had already had two C-sections with previous children and her doctor who is a high-risk specialist wanted her to have another C-section.

I don't know why, but doctors and staff did not listen to her or her common-law husband who is also the father of her children, Tafari Brathwaite. His account of what happened, will tear your heart to shreds.

Dying baby bucket list helps parents through hardest time


A young Pennsylvania couple, Jenna and Dan Haley, were over the moon to find out that they were having a baby boy, Shane. Then they found out that their unborn son, Shane, was diagnosed with a complex neural defect, anencephaly, which kills most infants soon after birth. It causes babies to be born without parts of their brain and skull. Most children who are born with this condition die soon after being born.

I can only imagine how heartbreaking this news must have been to the soon-to-be parents. It had to be one of the most devestating things to ever happen to a parent. They took it better than I ever could have and they made the best out of what can only be described as the worst situation. They chose to love their baby as much and for as long as they could.

Facebook rejects picture of sick baby & the reason will make you angry!


Hudson Bond was born with a serious heart condition called cardiomyopathy which requires a heart transplant. That's not the kind of news any parent wants to hear a week after their son was born, so when dad Kevin heard, he created a Facebook page to seek a donor and raise funds for the surgery. He uploaded a picture of baby Hudson hooked into a respirator and fighting for his life. The picture was meant to document the baby's condition but Facebook thought otherwise. They didn't approve it because it was too graphic and negative. What?!
