Last week, gossip rag Radar Online leaked “insider” intelligence about the personal trainer Kim Kardashian reportedly hired for 2-year-old daughter North West. “[Kim] wants [North] to be a perfect physical specimen, and she thinks it’s perfectly normal to want to get North in shape at such an early age,” said the alleged insider. “Mommy and Me” fitness regimes are not new. Self-conscious mothers, desperate to lose the baby weight as quickly as celebrity /humanly possible, have been slinging their infants to hybrid day care/Pilates classes for years. The emphasis on sculpting and toning used to be placed more on Mommy and much less on her (mini) Me. Though, today, it seems our increasingly image-conscious society is beginning to expect as much physical perfection from its babies as it demands... Last month, Erin Ashenhurst wrote about what it’s like to work out with “ Nine Pounds of Uncooperative Flop ,” or her 6-week-old son, for Slate. Her piece navigates the visceral, self-effacing experience of exercising in a room full of women desperate to make peace with their new “mom bods” while their little ones, “oblivious to societal pressure,” look on. Ashenhurst notes it was... Of her own son, Ashenhurst writes, “He is unaware that he, and all the babies here, are constantly being measured, judged. I am given a percentile, questioned about his abilities, and met with frowns or nods. His stats are written down in the doctor’s files. He is 'robust,' said the doctor. 'Oh, those rolls,' said the ladies at the park. 'What a chunky monkey. ' they cooed. Ashenhurst’s observations strike a latent nerve. Even though the act of body shaming mothers runs rampant in our culture, it is still (at least generally) regarded as highly gross and inappropriate. Why is it, then, that none of us bats an eye before body shaming babies. How is it those roly-poly, chunky monkey jokes are not only acceptable but also so prevalent they’ve become the default way to acknowledge young children. For the most part, baby body shaming is packaged and delivered as seemingly innocent teasing and sometimes even praise. A few days ago, a friend posted an Instagram photo of her sassy 1-year-old posing in a teal tankini at the beach. Source: www.phillyvoice.com
Mark Zuckerberg announces wife Priscilla Chan is pregnant with a baby girl - and that the couple suffered multiple miscarriages trying to have a child Mark Zuckerberg announced on Facebook that his wife Priscilla Chan is pregnant with their first... com You feel so hopeful when you learn you're going to have a child. You start imagining who they'll become and dreaming of hopes for their future. You start making plans, and then they're gone. It's a lonely experience.
