(PCM) New mothers who are in search of a way to keep the memory of breast feeding their newborn babies alive and well for years to come are in luck. Guess what? It is also a serious fashion statement as well! One of the latest jewelry trend is turning breast milk into some absolutely amazing looking accessories.

A New Jersey woman by the name of Ann Marie Sharoupium has started a company called “Mama’s Liquid Love” and it is really beginning to take off! Women can send Ann Marie some of their breast milk and she will then turn it into a piece of jewelry of their choice. There are tons of choices such as necklaces, earrings, bracelets and more. Definitely an oddly unique take on personalized jewelry!

Breast-feeding can create some very intimate moments between a child and a mother, so this is definitely a way to assist with preserving those moments shared between mother and child that can last a lifetime. There are some that feel the idea is a little bit controversial, however just looking at the jewelry designs there’s really no way of knowing that they were created with breast milk without someone actually telling you.

The jewelry is actually created to look like a pearly white stone, which is actually crafted from breast milk preserved in resin. You can also have the resin dyed to a color of your choosing, just in case breast milk white doesn’t happen to be your thing!

Definitely a unique gift idea and a one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry!

Couple Wins Legal Battle To Name Their Child As They Wish

Lobo1

(PCM) A Spanish couple named Nako and Maria Javierre claimed victory over a legal battle to give their newborn son a unique name. You might think, given that a legal battle ensued, that the couple had chosen some incredibly odd or offensive name for their child, but in reality it was truly not very odd at all.

Nako and Maria wished to name their baby “Lobo” which is the Spanish word for “wolf”, however when they went to register the name with the Fuenlabrada registry office in Madrid they were informed that the name they had chosen was too offensive and they had to choose another. We think Lobo is kind of a cool name and certainly not very offensive, so it is a bit baffling to understand why the registry office would have found an issue with it.

There are plenty of men out there named Wolf and there are definitely odder names that the couple could have chosen. Take for example Apple or Blanket?  How about Moon Unit? The couple eventually took their fight with the registry office to social media and began an online petition which garnered over 26,000 signatures for those in support of the couple and their newborn son’s name.

The Spanish authorities looked over the petition and eventually backed down and allowed the Javierre family to give their child the chosen name of “Lobo”. At last, justice was served! What do you think of the name?

Researchers Take The First Steps To Creating An Artificial Womb

artificial-womb

(PCM) There is already controversy brewing surrounding the news that researchers are well on their way to creating the world’s first artificial womb. The news sparks many debates over the issue of science and technology taking over for human life and the interaction between mothers and their newborn babies.

For many years little was known about the first few weeks of an embryo’s development inside of a woman’s uterus, however researchers have now discovered a way to watch fertilized eggs begin to grow and develop. Recently, researchers at Rockefeller University were able to watch and raise human embryos for a period of thirteen days.

Thus far, thirteen days is the only amount of time that is ethically allowed for human embryo growth and development for research purposes. That small amount of time, however, provided researchers with a plethora of knowledge and information and they learned that an embryo does indeed contain it’s own genetic instruction manual to aid in the development process. They found this information is not shared with the mother until much further along in the pregnancy.

This new information opens the door for researchers to explore various options for human growth and development that would no longer be dependent on a human womb. While it does raise quite a few ethical questions about the bond between a mother and child, it also opens doors for women who are unable to carry out pregnancies due to certain physical ailments.

The way it would work is that a woman’s fertilized egg would be implanted into a lab-created womb which would contain all the vital nutrients needed for the developing fetus, including an artificial placenta and amniotic fluid. Parents to be would also have the ability to control their child’s gender and physical appearance, as well as, certain desirable genetic traits.

This all certainly sounds like something straight out a science fiction novel and brings up the age old question of whether or not is okay for researchers to play God in the name of science.

Dad’s Across The Internet Created The Cheerio Challenge And It Rocks!

Cheerio1

(PCM) The latest and arguably the most adorable internet challenge was created by a bunch of dad’s who have now won the internet just in time for Father’s Day.

The #cheeriochallenge was created by a blog called Life Of Dad and consists of asking fathers to stack Cheerio’s cereal on their sleeping babies faces. The challenge has caught on like wildfire and father’s all over are posting adorable images of their babies with stacks of Cheerio’s trying to outdo each other with who can get the highest stack without it falling.

The competition is fierce, as some dad’s have managed to stack as many as 17 cheerio’s on top of their baby’s sleeping heads. Some dad’s are accusing each other of using glue to hold together the stacks of Cheerio’s, but all in all the challenge has been in good fun and spirit. Many also claim that if you lick the Cheerio’s before stacking it helps them stick together or using flavored Apple Cinnamon Cheerio’s assist with making the challenge a bit easier.

Either way it is completely adorable and amazing to see dad’s bonding with their babies just in time for Father’s Day!

‘Adult Nursery’ Opens In Illinois And Local Residents Are Not Pleased!

Tykables1

(PCM) A man by the name of Todd has opened what is most likely the nations first and only ‘adult nursery’ called Tykables, which exists to cater to those adult individuals who suffer from incontinence, as well as, those who are  “ABDL” otherwise known as “Adult Baby Diaper Lovers”.

ABDL is a sexual fetish where the person enjoys putting on adult sized baby diapers and behaving in an infantile way. Todd claims that he started Tykables (which happens to be a brand of adult-sized baby diapers) to meet both the medical and sexual needs of his clientele.

The Tykables diapers are available for purchase, however the store takes things a step further and features a 7.5 foot crib, large stuffed teddy bears, a 5.5. foot Rocking Horse, and an adult-sized high chair for feeding time. While Todd claims no actual sexual activity takes place in the store, it is a place where fetishists can let loose and be themselves without fear of shame or judgement.

Entrance to Tykables is gained by appointment only and all windows and doors are completely shuttered for privacy. Despite the privacy precautions, residents in suburban Mt. Prospect, Illinois, where Tykables is located, are outraged.  They are demanding that the city step and close Tykables for good.

The city sided with Tykable and it appears they are safe for the time being as it has been proven that no actual sex takes place in the establishment, it is private and the only activities that take place are consensual acts of teddy bear cuddling and bottle feeding by appointment only.  Everything is legit from a legal stand-point, so the disgusted residents will be forced to deal with it for now. Maybe Todd will hand them out some free pacifiers?
