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!
Moms please beware--the remedy you may be using to cure your baby's oral pain during teething could be unsafe and dangerous. The FDA warns that mouth-numbing gels and liquids sold at your local drugstore may cause potential harm to babies. Benzocaine and lidocaine-based products should be avoided along with some prescription drugs that attempt to numb the gum pain. Find out what else to avoid, the negative symptoms the meds can cause and safer options for relieving pain from teething.
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?
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.
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.
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?!

A two-year-old baby has suffered second degree burns after his mom's boyfriend placed him in a dryer and took him for a spin - literally.

When questioned, he admitted to police that he placed the baby in the dryer and turned it on, but that it was a quick moment.

Conjoined twins Knatalye and Adeline share practically everything, including a liver, diaphragm, pericardial sac (the lining of the heart) and intestines. But that's all about to change!
In a matter of months, doctors at Texas Children's Hospital will surgically separate the 4-month-old gemelas who, due to their unique "connection", have been living eye-to-eye their entire lives so far. Though the operation is admittedly risky, doctors say the chances for a successful separation look good. As for the twins' parents, they remain hopeful, también. "You can't have faith without hope and Hope without Faith," the twins' mother Elysse Mata quips, referring to the girls' middle names, which are, you guessed it: Hope and Faith! Cute.
