  • Babies have ability to distinguish right from wrong: Based on recent research from Yale University’s Infant Cognition Center (known as “The Baby Lab”), babies as young as 3 months old can actually tell good from bad. According to Paul Bloom, author of the new book “Just Babies: The Origins of Good and Evil, and the research he conducted with his wife Karen Wynn, a professor of psychology at Yale University: “Humans are born with a hard-wired morality, a sense of good and evil is bred in the bone. We are naturally moral beings, but our environment can enhance — or sadly, degrade — this innate moral sense”.
  • Why are kids allergies on the rise: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has recently published a major study on children and allergies with some shocking results: 1 in 20 kids have food allergies (up 50 percent from the 1990s); 1 in 8 kids have some kind of skin allergy or eczema (up 69 percent). To many it may appear as if every other kid was allergic to something. Learn more what causes these allergies and what can be done about it.
  • The SaddleBaby toddler carrier is a new product designed to keep kids safer while riding on their parents’ shoulders. It comes with a harness attached to parent’s chest with belts keeping kids’ feet from moving and therefore preventing them from falling off. The carrier gives parent the flexibility to access places he/she wouldn’t be able to access with a stroller. Children can enjoy the view safely and make the whole adventure a unique parent-child bonding experience.
