Top 10 Unconventional Baby Names

I believe we’ve all heard our fair share of unique baby names, be it classmates or working colleagues. But here are some more high profile kids with unconventional baby names, and we’re betting some will make you speechless.

1. Audio Science – Shannyn Sosammon & Dallas Clayton

No, it’s not a college major, its not an exhibition in the museum, it’s this kid’s name. Can you imagine, this kid growing up and enrolling himself into an audio course just for shizz and giggles?

2. Denim – Toni Braxton & Keri Lewis

Oh look, he’s even wearing denim in this picture! It’s an unfortunate name (in my opinion), I mean, who wants to be named after a fabric?

3. Dusty Rose Levine – Adam Levine & Behati Prinsloo

Let’s be honest, Adam Levine is a really fit man (People’s magazine’s 2013 sexiest man of the year). When I heard he was engaged, I threw a hissy fit. When I heard Behati was pregnant, I almost cried. When I heard they had named their baby Dusty Rose, I still think he’s hot.. its just Dusty rose, really Adam? That’s SO 2016.

4. Java – Josh Holloway

Well, Java is pretty open to interpretation. Did he mean Java chips? Java script? She is adorable, and I do like a good green tea cream frappuccino with java chips.

5. Maple – Jason Bateman & Amanda Anka 

Maple, like maple syrup? Like Canada?? I will never be able to look at my pancakes drenched in maple syrup the same way, EVER.

6. Racer – Robert Rodriguez

Would be odd if he didn’t pass his driver’s test on the first try, eh?

Although these names aren’t the most unconventional of the bunch, I just felt it wouldn’t be right to make such a list without including children from the Kardashian-Jenner clan.

7, 8, 9. North, Saint, Chicago West – Kim Kardashian & Kanye West

She just had to, didn’t she? Props to her, she made headlines all three times with her unique baby names.

Fun KKW fact: Her third child, Chicago is actually a surrogate baby, aka someone else got to enjoy all the “perks” of pregnancy while Kim continued strutting around in her slim thick figure.

10. Stormi Webster – Kylie Jenner & Travis Scott

Let’s see a show of hands who didn’t know Travis Scott’s real name was actually Jacques Webster. I’m definitely one of those. I was also counting on her baby’s name to be Butterfly Jenner-Scott as the duo had revealed subtle clues leading to the baby’s name being something butterfly related. Kylie Jenner had also been semi-successful in “hiding” her pregnancy; staying out of the public eye once her baby bump surfaced and not responding to rumours. We all knew it was true, she just didn’t confirm it.

Do you know a baby or are you planning on naming your baby something unique? You wont be able to find their name in any store on ornaments or clothing.

Diaper Cakes SG offers personalized onesies where you’re able to print a baby name and design, like this adorable duckling onesie.

5 Baby Shower gifts you didn’t know you needed

5 Baby Shower gifts you didn’t know you needed

Aside from the usual baby shower gifts like baby blankets, diaper bags and breast pumps, here are some gifts outside the norm you didn’t know you needed.

1. Bib that catches fallen food

This bib catches the fallen food that escapes your baby’s mouth. No more picking food off your baby’s clothes, as it will all fall into the pocket on the bib. This is a perfect baby shower gift for as soon as the baby is able to eat solid foods.

2. Unicorn home slippers

They’re adorable, comfy, and they keep your feet warm. New moms tend to experience chills postpartum, especially against your stylish glossy tiles at home. This pair of unicorn slippers help your feet stay warm while help soothe your aching feet from the bloating from pregnancy.

Available from Natures Collection.

3. Formula dispenser 

This is great for being on the go, having formula milk already measured to the right amount makes feeding your baby on the go really easy. Instead of having formula stored in ziplock bags or chunky containers, the formula dispenser will fit in your diaper bag snuggly.

4. Memento Box

 

Having a keepsakes box to store all the little bits of childhood will give your child something to look back on. I remember my mum kept the bit of umbilical cord stump after it dried up, as a measure of good luck. As the years went by, she also put in my first gold anklet after I grew too big to fit it, as well as my first teeth.

Available in blue and pink from Diaper Cakes SG.

5. Animal Pacifier

Adorning a pacifier with a stuffed animal will help appease your baby when they’re upset, as well as keep them occupied.

And there you have it, a handful of baby shower gifts you didn’t know you needed but will change your life.

2. Naladoo Siberian Husky Soft Toy

Given Singapore’s hot climate, it’s not the best environment to own a husky due to their thick coats. The next best thing would be a husky soft toy mirroring such adorableness.

Ever come across one of these popular doge memes? Doge was one of the few original memes that starting the dog meme craze. Well now you can have a Shiba Inu Doge pillow of your own glaring at you.

4 Problems With Baby Shower Gifts

Problems With Baby Shower Gifts

If baby showers involved a baby monkey taking a shower, that would be so cute.

Somewhere in your life, you will receive a flurry of baby shower invitations, and you will feel happy (because yay, your friends are going to be parents soon!) and/or at a loss because you’re not sure what to buy, get or give.

Here are 12 problems with baby shower gifts.
1.  They are (or can be!) too expensive.

Some hampers we saw online cost a whopping $170 – $330. Some friendships are worth that cost, but if you’ve got financial commitments of your own and can’t afford to spend an extra $330 that month, this can really take a toll on you and your wallet. If baby showers involved a baby monkey taking a shower, that would be so cute.

Somewhere in your life, you will receive a flurry of baby shower invitations, and you will feel happy (because yay, your friends are going to be parents soon!) and/or at a loss because you’re not sure what to buy, get or give.

2. Not knowing what to get

With so many choices on the market, and recommendations from friends or family members, or even sharing gifts with your colleagues, thinking of a gift to get could take a long time. Everything might just be too good a choice, or everything suggested isn’t good at all.

3. Too common

If you thought of red packets or (yet another bottle of!) chicken essence, your gift might just be one of many same gifts your recipient will receive that day, and while she will appreciate the extra moolah and nourishment, that’s not the most memorable gift. The only aim of a gift is to be practical and something the recipient will find uses for, but isn’t it extra points if your gift can be delightfully different and memorable too?

4. Too busy to buy
Too Busy - Problems With Baby Shower Gifts
Almost like an Indian God already.

If you’re too busy to do anything else in life, having to spend the time to think of what baby gift to buy for the baby shower you’ve been invited to is another extra task in your life you don’t want to go through.

Which is why Diaper Cakes are your to-go resources.
Problems With Baby Shower Gifts
We are not monkeying around when we say so!

6 Things Online Shoppers Understand

For some, their 3 magic words are “I love you.” For you, it might be “Add to cart.”

Here are 10 things only online shoppers will understand.

1. To start off,

This is the most glorious sight to behold on ANY website:

Online Shoppers

As online shoppers, shipping and delivery can be expensive. If there’s free worldwide shipping, we’d take it FOR SURE.

2. When there are flash sales, you behave like this.

emma-stone-excited

Because it means money saved! And so much convenience considering you are just clicking and scrolling. You don’t even have to leave your house for a single second.

3. When the clothes you buy online fit you perfectly.

Sometimes measurements don’t match up and sizes don’t fit, or the model’s estimate didn’t actually serve you too well. You were skeptical about the piece you bought and you were prepared to return it…….. Then, you slipped it on and it fit you perfectly!

4. When your friends say they can’t find a particular product online, or something they need for a special occasion just doesn’t exist in any online shop.

You know they are wrong. Whether it’s for a special dinner that calls for a new, dazzling dress, a dinner party that suddenly expands and needs extra food, everything can be found online!

Or when you need a memorable gift for a brand new baby in your life and you don’t know where to look………

Online shoppers hate this.

How Long Would Women Stay At The Hospital After Birth?

How long would women stay at the hospital after birth? When it comes to giving birth, it has been reported in the CDC that in 1981, American women were averaging nearly 4 days in hospital recovery after birth. But an increase in health care costs has forced this number down. (It’s always money, isn’t it?)

To prevent that number from dipping too far down in the US, Congress passed the Newborns’ and Mothers’ Health Protection Act in 1996, requiring insurers to cover at least 48 hours of hospital stay for complication-free vaginal deliveries and 96 hours for c-sections. On a global scale, the World Health Organization recommends women remain hospitalized for 24 hours after a vaginal birth.

In Singapore, we have plenty of options as to how one wants to give birth – in a private or a public hospital, and the hospital stay normally varies from a night to two nights.

There has been a study conducted to talk more about how long do women stay at the hospital after birth. Might not be the most interesting to read, but definitely something fun to know!

  1. Cesarean-section mode of delivery was independently and consistently associated with longer lengths of stay, and had the largest effect size.
  2. Deliveries with other need-related factors (twins or triplets, lower birthweight, or an index child who died before or on the discharge day) were independently and consistently associated with longer lengths of stay.
  3. Deliveries where infants died after discharge were associated with shorter average stays and more stays that were too short in the crude means and proportions, but the pattern reversed, such that death after discharge was associated with longer stays (although not always statistically significantly), once country was adjusted for. This reversal of the direction of association was because, on average, countries with higher infant mortality—and hence higher post-discharge mortality—had shorter lengths of stay.How Long Would Women Stay At The Hospital After Birth Map

    There’s a picture of the world map with regions documenting the length of hospital stays.

  4. Additionally, women whose newborns were wanted stayed longer (and were less likely to stay too short) than those whose pregnancies were mistimed or unwanted.How Long Would Women Stay At The Hospital After Birth?

    So as new mothers, women don’t typically spend a lot of time in the hospital after birth. But they do spend a lot of time learning a lot of things while they’re newly hospitalised, like how to breastfeed, how to manage their baby and how to take care of their baby in the first few months.

    And as a good friend/fellow parent, you’re all about making his/her life better, right? So we’ll tell you the perfect gift – A Diapercake!

    So… “How long would women stay at the hospital after birth….?” It wouldn’t matter so much because they’re made extra comfortable with your loving thoughts and gifts.

    A tight, warm swaddling blanket, comfortable romper and a matching pair of shoes…. they’re light, presentable, beautiful and welcome for any baby shower, and of course, the birth of a new loved one.
