Free cups of tea for breastfeeding moms.
Being a mother is no easy task, especially if you’re a new mom raising your first baby. This coffee shop in Sydney knows how hard it is to be a mom and that’s why they’re inviting all new moms who want to breastfeed for a cup of warm tea. “Breastfeeding moms- pop in and have a free cup of tea if you need a pitt stop. No need to eat, no need to ask- Please relax”- it’s written on the sign in front of the coffee shop. The sign became an instant hit...

Here's an interesting post from a Canadian Mom, who at the time was living in Japan. More evidence that there's no one-size-fits all policy for sleep scheduling. Most babies can learn to nap on the go!
What happens if your baby wont sleep when you want her to? Read what this mom learned on Babble.com.

William Ledbetter: A Man's Proposal To Girlfriend And Her Daughter

http://www.inquisitr.com/2876254/william-ledbetter-a-mans-proposal-to-girlfriend-and-her-daughter/
William Ledbetter didn’t want to leave anyone out of this special occasion. While his proposal seems weird from this onset, assuredly it’s quite the opposite.

Interesting article about unconscious gender bias towards children....
A good read on International Women's Day too, so we can understand how much we are unconsciously contributing to 'keep things are they are'.
Enjoy!
Stop telling your daughters to be careful all the time. Let them face their fears.

Baby smiles when seeing his mother for the first time in his life.
Leopold Wilbur Reppond from Seattle was born with oculocutaneous albinism that severely impairs his sight and he has never seen his family clearly. He only ‘sees’ his family using his tiny hands, he recognizes his dad by his beard and his beloved mom by feeling her face. Leopold is now 4 months old and he was finally given the opportunity to see thanks to the special infant glasses from Miraflex. In the following video, Leo’s mom puts the specia...

Don’t turn your face away. Stop child abuse!
These horrible news just struck the world: An 8-year old child from Yemen died on her wedding night. Her death was caused by internal injuries from sexual trauma. Human rights organizations from all around the world are asking for the husband, who’s 5 times her age, to be arrested. “According to the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), between 2011 and 2020, more than 140 million girls will become child brides.
