Some unisex baby names start as female choices and shift over time to become more boyish, but many more begin as all-boy names and over the decades cross to the girls’ side.
The baby names here are extreme cases. Most started life, back when the US government began recording babies’ names, as 100% male choices, and now have become mostly girls’ names. More
There are few things more thrilling in life than having your first baby. But newbie baby namers are prone to making some mistakes that more experienced name choosers are able to avoid. More
The history of baby names is littered with former stars that burned brightly for a decade or two, only to fade from view.
With the new US popularity list due out in less than a month, we thought it would be fun to look at today’s most popular baby names and guess which similar choices might move in to replace them — if not at the next tally, then at some point in the future. More
A few weeks ago we asked the Nameberry moms and dads to tell us their best baby name rules. What followed were hundreds of suggestions, from the idiosyncratically individual (All middle names must be Celtic and begin with R) to rules so universal they might apply to everyone.
Rule Number 1, according to one berry? No dumb names. We’re down with that, along with these 21 other smart, sensible rules that every modern baby namer should follow: More
Do you remember the moment you first learned you were pregnant? After the shock and awe period passes, pregnancy is the perfect time to commit to eliminating toxic chemicals from your food, home, and personal care products.
Making your daily routines as healthy as possible during pregnancy will make you feel better and will go a long way toward protecting your unborn child from toxic chemicals like BPA, mercury, phthalates and more, all of which have been found in the bodies of pregnant women. Clearing out chemicals from your daily routines now is good practice for creating a healthy home environment for your newborn baby, who will be particularly vulnerable to harmful chemicals found in everyday products.
Over the years, Healthy Child has gathered some excellent pregnancy advice from our experts and friends. Consider these tips for a greener, healthier pregnancy.
You’ve seen it on dozens of TV shows and in the movies. “Honey, grab the suitcase – it’s time!!” So what do you really need (or want?) in your hospital bag?
Congrats, you’re pregnant! Get ready—during these next nine months, you’re going to go through a lot of changes: physical, emotional, and yes, financial. But before you start shopping for cribs and strollers, you’ll need to take care of your own maternity needs.
Whether you plan on buying a whole new maternity wardrobe or just borrowing from friends and family, here’s the rundown on some things to keep in mind — from the must-haves, to some nice-to-haves.
Your newborn is just a few minutes old, yet he’s already taking his first tests. But don’t let performance anxiety get to you. In-hospital tests are there to help doctors assess your baby’s health and to give them an earlier opportunity to discover potential (sometimes life-threatening) disorders before they adversely affect your baby’s health.
Tests vary from state to state; some are required, some are offered, but all are there to help assess the well-being of your newborn and to make sure your baby is on the right track to a healthy, happy life.
You might have heard that old adage: “Luck comes when preparation meets opportunity.”
Well, you’re in for some luck. Here’s your opportunity to learn how to be prepared for your birthing experience. Of course, as we’ve said before, labor is unpredictable. So while arming yourself with information and techniques can be helpful, it’s a good idea to be open to all the twists and turns that may arise during birth.
