Well Babyologists, June has come and May has gone which means it’s time to look back at another month of your favourite news posts.

May brought us stories from around the globe with celebrity pregnancy announcements, adorably hairy babies, a multitude of newborn and toddler guides, hilarious videos and heartbreaking real life stories. But what had us all clicking last month?

Here are our top five news posts.

Our next most popular post came in the form of this newborn guide – what to actually expect in the delivery room (from the first contraction to the first few hours). From not being able find a car park to experiencing a plethora of emotions (and bodily fluids), our writer tells it how it is.

These two images made headlines around the world but for very different reasons. Why is one okay and the other not? Come and see the images of men tenderly comforting young children that are dividing opinions.


We travelled to the UK to bring you a funny account of one man’s first day on daddy duty after his wife returns to work. Matt Coyne took this opportunity to have a bit of fun with Photoshop. From skydiving to pub crawling, it looks like dad and son had a great day!

Images of a toddler’s horrific crash injuries also led the way in clicks as one mum shares the devastating damage to her toddler after a car crash and prompts parents around the globe to consider if rear facing seats are the safest option for toddlers as well as babies.
