Top five news posts for December

Here at Babyology we love keeping you up to date with the latest parenting news stories from around the globe and our top news posts in December included stories on successful infant settling, breastfeeding shaming and the arrival of Saint West. If you missed any of our news stories in December, here’s your chance to revisit our top news posts that rounded up 2015.

sad act of kindness

We were reduced to tears after learning about the story of mother and a kind stranger who helped pay for her groceries, only to be killed in a car accident shortly after their encounter. If we ever needed a reminder of the power of paying it forward, then this certainly is it.

badass mum

Our post on a fiercely awesome breastfeeding mum who took to social media after being shamed for breastfeeding in public was also a huge hit. Many mums have felt the sting from a stranger’s glare or comment when breastfeeding but Ashley Kaidel doesn’t take the shaming lightly.

baby hold

It’s the question all new parents want the answer to – how do you settle a screaming newborn? Paediatrician Dr Robert Hamilton has come up with the answer and it’s known as ‘the hold’. All it takes is four simple steps and it just may be the answer you are looking for when it comes to settling a screaming newborn in seconds. 

saint west

The arrival of Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West’s son was another one of our most popular posts in December. Saint West made his grand appearance in early December and the celebrity pair has just released the first photo of their second child.


We rounded up the month with a beautiful story on one mum’s experience staying inside with her newborn for 40 days after the birth. Rather than rush off to introduce bub to the world, Kate Alexandra cherished every simple moment with her new baby, leaving the technology, the errands and the chaos of reality outside the house.
