Do Babies Belong in Bars?
Do Babies Belong in Bars? This Dad Says Yes!
There's never a shortage of news in the parenting world — from differing parenting styles to new studies and beyond. But there are only so many hours in the day, and we can't cover every story that catches our eyes. Take a look at the seven stories you may have missed this week but need to read.
- Most babies' first outings involve a grassy park or a grandparent's home. But if those locations seem a bit lackluster, perhaps you should consider a bar. While some may see this as a precarious setting for a baby — debut or not — one dad explains why a tavern is the ideal place to take your tot. And if we're being honest, he has some good points.
- We're quick to dish out some Tylenol when our children fall ill, but our cure for the cold could do more harm than good. A recent study suggests parents are incorrectly measuring their children's medications, resulting in more than 6,300 children being sent to the hospital each year.
- Should a mom-to-be's health come before her work? In our opinion, yes. But some companies still refuse to accommodate their expecting employees. That was the case for Angelica Valencia, who was let go when her pregnancy prevented her from working overtime.
- If you're starting a family, you may want to consider a cross-country move. A recent report from Opportunity Nation and Measure of America revealed the best and worst states for children's education. Where does yours fall on the list?
- Not every boy likes to run around in the dirt or toss around a football. And that's OK! Here, a mom shares a heartwarming message to her son who prefers tutus to toy trucks.
- If you're a foodie looking for a fun way to photograph your baby, then this man may have the answer. Mike Chau, a New York City artist, created an Instagram account that combines his two favorite things — food and his baby. We're not sure whether to say aww or nom.
- Could some kids have a sixth sense? And no, we're not talking about seeing dead people. One woman's experience has many wondering if children can predict when a woman will go into labor.
