Fox (the network not the forest critter, ah!) is not known for its seriousness. I rely on Fox when I look for no-brainer entertainment like Family Guy...hello, our dog is named Brian. However, I saw a little "investigation" from Fox News about co-sleeping and the conclusions were interesting.
I must say that, for anybody with a bit of knowledge in statistics, the research done by the journalist is pretty superficial and combine many elements that work marvelously well for a Fox News video: baby, death, ethnic minority, low income family, segregation, creepy anti co-sleeping publicity...you get the picture.
Anyway, if you managed to watch the entire thing (again, it is Fox News), the conclusions left me a bit perplex. If not, ***spoiler (if you can call that a spoiler)*** do you think that there is a direct link between bottle fed babies and death while co-sleeping?
It does make some sense but it seems just a bit too simple!

190.arch: Oh yes, I saw one of those push thing toy with a trolley at Ikea. Thank you for the suggestions. About the shape sorter, I will ask for it but it will stay in the closet until the time is right. We have a generous family and Alice is the only baby so people all want to get her a little something....and I don't have enough ideas at the moment!
daniela: This is such a funky cool idea. I might do that for her birthday. You are right, I could ask for another swimming class for the winter-spring session. Like you, my personal list is much longer ;)
sara: OMG, that link is AMAZING!!! Thank you thank you thank you :)
lydia: Oh wow, so cute! I will add them to the list.
peanut: I think that I will ask for gift certificates for clothes. I'm sure that my uncles will be happy with that easy suggestion! Totally, our cat always get sick on the most difficult surface to clean. How does he know???
maria w: Yes, Duplo Legos. Love your comment about the clown-hammer! Funny but oh so annoying!
suite henry: The thing with grand-parents is that you better make them happy (and just put the item in the closet after) and move on with your life because they can be pretty annoying ;)
