Would you eat in a public bathroom stall? Yeah, didn't think so.
So, why would you think that babies would want to?
That's the point art students from the University of North Texas are hoping to drive home via a series of awareness ads.
According to an article in the Huffington Post, "When Nurture Calls" may have had started as a class project by students Johnathan Wenske and Kris Haro, yet it's fast growing into a social media campaign.
Although there is currently no funding to produce the ads, the students hope their work will further a Texan legislative bill known as HB 1706, set up to protect moms from breastfeeding-related harassment and discrimination.
All too often we've heard stories of moms being kicked out of public places or declined service just for feeding their infants—something they have a legal right to do.
Sarah Thistlethwaite got double the Mother's Day present this past weekend. Not only did she give birth to monoamniotic twins—a one in 10,000 condition—Jillian and Jenna were pictured holding hands following the delivery.
According to an article in CBC, the "mono" girls, who shared the same amniotic sac and placenta, were taken off ventilators and allowed to cuddle with their parents.
"They're already best friends," said 32-year-old Thistlethwaite. "I can't believe they were holding hands. That's amazing."
Born via C-section, the Ohio twins are expected to remain in hospital for several more weeks. Having a mono pregnancy poses risks of umbilical cord entanglement. Thistlethwaite was on extended bed rest until she delivered at 33 weeks.
"It's hard, it really is," said Thistlethwaite. "It was very mentally challenging knowing I have to sit here all day."
Spill it. Were you on bed rest during your pregnancy? How did you cope?
This mom's pregnancy was even more rare—like one in 70 million kind of rare.
You wouldn't tend to equate Mother's Day sentiment with Eminem. But his latest video 'Headlights' is a powerful and complicated reflection on an equally complicated relationship.
Though Marshall Mathers has long had a strained relationship with his mom—often slamming her in his earlier work—it seems as he gets older and wiser the Detroit rapper is longing for closure and even reconcilation:
"'Cause to this day we remain estranged and I hate it, though/ 'Cause you ain't even get to witness your grandbabies grow."
Cue a video directed by the one and only Spike Lee (courtesy of Gawker). While the song is not the stuff of flowers and chocolates, the lyrics cut straight to the heart. A far cry from what he had to say in 'Cleanin Out My Closet.'
What do you think? Do you need to become a parent before you're able to fully appreciate your own?
