Why Babies Do That: Baffling Baby Behavior Explained by Jennifer Margulis.Forget the cloth diapers meticulously arranged in the shape of a three-tier cake and get your sister or girlfriend something she’ll really want to use. Like the book,
Jennifer answers all sorts of common questions regarding baffling baby behavior, such as why babies get acne or why some do that Popeye thing with one eye. You’ll also find explanations for some of the questions you don’t think to ask about, like how come babies try to put their fingers in electric sockets, or why they want to play with their own poop. (You mean, it’s not just because they want to torture us?)
Margulis seemingly has the scoop on everything, and dispenses it with a writing style as that’s as soothing and warm as mom’s chicken soup. It’s also a quick read which is a good thing given the limited free time of new moms.
The only problem with the book? The number of adorable baby photos between the covers just may make regret that no more babies after this one! decision. –Lisa B.
Hi! We’re Kristen + Liz!
We started Cool Mom Picks in 2006 to help make life cooler, easier, more organized, more meaningful, and more fun for parents of all kinds.
Trivia: It was called Cool Mom Sh*t for the first two days. (Yeah, we rethought that.)
We had no idea our site would grow to become a major lifestyle network, that we'd end up sharing our finds with the TODAY Show and Martha Stewart, that we'd be able to make a real difference for so many small businesses and women-run companies, or that we'd end up with an incredible community of the coolest readers on the planet. (If we do say so ourselves).
But we did.
And we still love what we do every single day.
We're so glad you're here.
