Top 10 Baby Names for 2013

baby

Choosing a name for a baby can be a hair pulling affair. The general rule is this: if it’s not a slam dunk “YES THAT’S THE NAME!”, then you’re better off deliberating the name a little more. I liken it very much to choosing a domain name with several business partners. The “right” one is when everyone around the table, all slightly inebriated, start nodding their heads in agreement.

Luckily for us, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) exists. The annual baby names bulletin compiled by the ONS for England and Scotland has just been published. Over 200,000 babies and their names all tallied on a beautiful frequency table. So, who takes the top spot?

*drum roll*

Amelia and Oliver takes top places but what about the rest? We got you covered. Here are the top baby names for 2013. Unsurprising, “Ned” doesn’t make the cut for the boy’s list.

Singapore Indie Baby Clothes Sellers on Etsy

I really love all the beautiful crafts and pieces that comes out of the talented Etsy community. Feeling slightly curious one day, I decided to see if there were any baby clothes sellers on Etsy from Singapore. Surprise surprise, two quaint little shops showed up.

The first shop is mysweetliprincessbow. They sell baby hair bands, hair clips and other hair accessories.

How To Make Kids Like You

As an early 30-something male in Singapore, I am now in the age group where all my friends/family are starting have kids.

As a somewhat awkward techie, being around kids can be a slightly stressful event. My very first “proper exposure” to kids was when I visited my cousin during my spring break. He has 2  boys. One aged around 3, the other was still in the crawling stage.

It was pretty standoffish at first but I slowly warmed to them (and they to me!). Since then, I’ve had quite a few years to figure this little conundrum out: How do you get kids to like you? While it’s not paramount that every kid I meet must like me, it does help to know how to behave around them. And I think I’ve figured it out.

Be silly.

silly

Admittedly, it doesn’t always work.

It takes a while to read their moods and know when silly works. But the more times you do it, and come in contact with said baby/child, the easier it is to get along with them.

And that’s all there is to it! In fact, the sillier you are, the better. The best thing about kids is that they are totally un-bias and non-judgemental. So, there is no need to feel embarrassed or shameful or as we like to say in Singapore, paiseh when interacting with kids.

Here are some things that I do that breaks the ice and establishes rapport:

  • Fist bump/high-5
  • Ask to borrow their toys and talk about their toys
  • Balance stuff on your head
  • Make funny voices when talking to your friend (the parent of the child) and go back to a serious “normal” voice when talking to them (or vice versa)
  • Destroy things around you. They love this one!

As someone who is generally very laid back, I wonder if being around kids, brings out my own inner child too.

Top 5 Unique Baby Shower Gifts

Baby showers are a time of great joy and celebration. To be invited to a baby shower normally signifies an above average relationship with the parents. Naturally, you must be very happy for her that she is expecting a baby and finding a gift that expresses your happiness and appreciation is of utmost importance.

Getting the best baby shower gift may not be as simple as it seems especially for someone who never had a baby before. Let us show you unique ideas that will make a perfect baby shower gift. These products are not difficult to find and won’t cost you lots of money.

1. Diaper Cake

2-Tier-Diaper-Cake-Singapore-Baby-Gift-Hamper-Pink-Minnie-Mouse-Baby-Girl-Surfina-32 Tier -DiaperCakesSingapore-BabyGifts-MickeyMouse-Boy-Matthew-3

Having lots diapers is a must for a couple that has a little baby. But it doesn’t mean you need to get it boring big pack of diaper packaging. Diaper cakes offer a better solution. The diapers are arranged in a manner that resembles a cake. It is also normally topped (see with did there?) with other related baby accessories like socks, stuffed toys and bibs. The attractive layout and clever arrangement makes it a hit at most baby shower parties. Visit our site to find out about diaper cake and other baby gifts. Also, our diaper cakes comes in an attractive packaging that makes it easy to carry around.

2. Handmade Nappy Bag

Everywhere the baby goes, The Diaper Supply Depot also goes. That’s why every parent need a proper diaper or nappy bag. Handmade diaper bags will be a nice choice for baby shower gift. You can choose the one made from various materials with the right design that your friend would really love. It is recommended to find the one with personalization option. Here are some interesting options from Etsy

 

3. Nursing Cushion

Many moms feel uncomfortable position while breastfeeding. With nursing cushion, she can provide gentle and safe support to her baby yet helping her get ergonomic position while breastfeeding. Don’t forget to choose only a cushion made entirely from 100% natural fabrics.

4. Hand-knit Baby Hat

A baby hat helps to keep the baby’s head warm and what would be better than a hand knit hat. It would be perfectly comfortable for the baby and moreover, it can make her look good. You can choose from various models and colours and whichever you choose, just make sure you get the “right” colour to suit the sex of the baby. And that means pink for girls and blue for boys.

5. Stylish Nursing Tank

The previous four are all about the baby and for the last one, we think that it’s only right the mommy gets something too. A stylish nursing tank is a great gift if the mother intends to breast feed. It is basically a tank top with built in bra for ultimate comfort and support with clip at shoulder for easy opening designed to let the baby has easy access to the breast. It makes breastfeeding much easier and more importantly, keeps the mom in style.
