Parenting News Roundup: Baby Factory, Couture Delivery Gown, and More

This one makes me go, Huh? It seems a ‘baby factor’ in Warsaw, Poland is now offering up babies for sale, born to young surrogate moms. Each baby is worth about 11,000 pounds or about $21,000. It has, needless to say, sparked a very hot debate. Read the article yourself and decide whether it’s a solution to the infertility problems facing many Polish couples.

This one is good in theory, but by the time delivery rolled around, I didn’t care if I was buck naked. It seems they now have couture wear for moms to don for delivery. They even have one with the requisite slit at the back from Dar-A-Luz Maternity Wear. It, uhm, retails for $98. I like it but that price tag is a bit rich for me. Plus, what about all the blood and other bodily fluids that could get on it? Finally, will your hospital even let you wear it? Hmmm…

And for a little sad news, did you know that PBS is planning to cut Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood? If you’re as sad as millions of parents who grew up watching this show, head on over to SaveMisterRogers.com.

And to end on a positive note, a state of the art school and research facility for autistic children and children opened last Wednesday, August 6 in Chicago, IL. The $32 million facility is called Easter Seals Therapeutic School and Center for Autism Research and can accomodate 150 students. Hopefully, its success will inspire more facilities like it around the country, and the world.
