Saturday Surfing


Finds of the week.

  • Best and Worst Countries to be a Mother, InCulture Parent – “The 2010 Mothers’ Index rates 160 countries (43 developed nations and 117 in the developing world) in terms of the well-being of mothers and children. […] The U.S. places 28, primarily because its rate for maternal mortality – 1 in 4,800 – is one of the highest in the developed world. The U.S. also ranks behind many other wealthy nations in terms of its limited maternity leave policies. You’re better off being a mother in Lithuania or Latvia than in the U.S., which is on par with Poland, Slovakia and Belarus.”
  • DIY Recycled Sweater Pants, Prudent Baby – something for my long to-do list…
  • Gotcha! Elephant Caught Cheating, Krulwich Wonders – “…elephants can not only learn to work together, here’s one who figured out how to do something human males have been doing for years; she tricked her partner into becoming…a waitress.”  He he he.
  • Multicultured Parenting on Motherload – a beautiful piece on how babies and parents choose one another.
  • Visit and “like” Papoose on Facebook to stay up-to-date on current parenting, maternity, and baby news/studies.  I post new links there everyday.
