How to tell if your baby’s head is crowning
Tuesday, April 7th, 2009
It’s easy when you’re wearing the Peekaru, the newest alternative to a baby sling. In his bemused, horrified review of this product, Babble.com’s Brett Singer confesses that it reminds him of a certain sci-fi movie mutant: “All I can think of is the alien fetus thing from Total Recall. Kuato. Remember him?” How indelicate. Personally, the Peekaru reminds me much more strongly of the beautiful miracle of birth, minus the gore. And the pain, unless you’re one of those rare women blessed with a birth canal made of stretchy, 85% recycled, high-quality Polartec fleece.
