Study: Couples Trying For Baby 'Should Have Sex Daily'
Here's a study your hubby will be quoting for the next month.
While many clinics advise couples to have sex every other day in order to get pregnant, scientists have found that regular sex can significantly improve the quality of a man's sperm.
Although the quantity of sperm declined by more than half, researchers insisted that levels stayed well within those considered necessary for fertility.
Dr David Greening, from Sydney IVF, in Wollongong, Australia, said: "Sperm don't seem to like staying in warm testicles for too long. The advice might be to keep the rivers flowing."

Precious Planet Floating Activity Hippo (GIVEAWAY)
The Precious Planet floating activity hippo is a great starter toy for your little bather.
The fishy flutterball, rattling penguin, turtle strainer and whale squirter can take turns at tubtime play, or ride in the hippo’s feet. When bathtime is done, they store in the net. Easy to hang up and drip dry for next time!
I like that each of the friends are small enough for my baby to hold in his hands. He is just starting to grasp toys and explore. This hippo is perfect because the colors are bright and inviting.
My older son and I play memory with the characters in the tub. I place them in each corner and he has to repeat the order I put them in.
He also thinks that the Hippo's tummy is a basketball net and is quite good and getting the animals in from the other end of the tub.
I would recommend this as a great beginner bath toy. It's simple, but stimulating for kids of all ages.We have 3 Precious Planet Floating Activity Hippo's to giveaway.

Original gDiapers, consist of a washable, cotton outer little gPant and a plastic-free biodegradable diaper gRefill. They are made of breathable material just like sports clothing. So, babies stay dry and happy and are far less likely to get diaper rash.The new washable re-fills are made of two layers of soft 100% polyester microfleece wick moisture away from baby's bottom keeping it feeling dry and comfortable. Two layers of hemp/cotton absorb wetness and hold moisture in.
Hemp in particular becomes more absorbent with use so the more you wash gCloth inserts, the softer and more absorbent they become.
For optimum softness, absorbency and sizing, gDiapers recommends that you wash the gCloth inserts at least six (6) times before using in hot water and tumble dry on medium heat. They say to expect some shrinkage in length.
Like all cloth diaper products, the gCloth inserts will become softer and more absorbent the more you wash them.

Brazilian Student Creates 3D Models Of Unborn Babies
Expectant couples that are too excited to wait can now commission a life-size model of their unborn baby.
The amazing new medical technology is the result of a Royal College of Art design student's PhD.
Brazilian student Jorge Lopes has pioneered the conversion of data from ultrasound and MRI scans into life-size plaster models of living embryos using a method called rapid prototyping.
King's College head of obstetrics Stuart Campbell, called the invention 'absolutely unique' and 'a fantastic development'.
Professor Campbell, who pioneered the use of ultrasound in the 1980s, also hoped the technology would help mothers - blind mothers in particular - to bond with their babies.

Update: Newborn found in Shoebox in Lobby of Long Island Apartment Building
Last Sunday night a newborn was found abandoned in a shoe box in the lobby of a Long Island Apartment Building.
The tiny baby, who was less that a day old, still had the umbilical cord attached to the baby and tied off with dental floss.
Yesterday police arrested the newborn's mom. She has six other children, ages 8 and younger, and admitted to being addicted to cocaine during this pregnancy.
Xiomara Gamez, 24, who worked as a prostitute to support her drug habit, was afraid to go to a safe haven because of her undocumented status, police said. She moved from El Salvador 13 years ago.
At a news conference in Mineola, Det. Lt. Raymond Cote said Xiomara gave birth to a healthy baby girl in the basement of an abandoned house in Hempstead just after 1 a.m. Saturday.
She named the baby Pearl and left her at an apartment building where she knows Hispanic families live. Coverage of the story led to a tip from a man in Queens.
This story just gets worse with every piece of information that is released. I pray that a good family adopts this baby and never tells her about her crappy beginning.

Mom Mistakenly Leaves Baby On Train
The woman’s 3-year-old bolted out the open doors and she went after him, then turned around to see the doors close and the train take off north towards.
She then immediately called police who called ahead, met the train and recovered the baby, who was unhurt.
Another passenger, who was waiting at the station, said conductors held up the train until police arrived.
The baby was handed over to the mother and she went home.
Everyone in the situation should be commended for their quick thinking.
Even though this mom made the right choice running after her toddler, no one ever wants to be put in the predicament of having to choose. Disaster was bound to happen either way.
