Prince George might have been hogging the spotlight for cutest royal tot ever. However, the youngest son of Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau might give him some competition. Two-year-old Hadrien has a stately-like charm like his father. Trudeau brought his family to the state dinner at the White House and the little tot was eager to meet-and-greet with the fans and throw some high-fives around. It looks like the prime minister has a mini-statesman and future politician in his hands. What's more, his wife Sophie Grégoire-Trudeau, is proud to say that the tot is breastfed. "There are the scientific facts that prove that breast milk is amazing. So if I can continue to feed my child, even if he's 2, I'm not going to stop if he wants it." (huffingtonpost.com)
4. Animated video aims to teach parents about preventing SIDS
To mark this year's Safer Sleep Week (March 14 to March 20), U.K.'s national charity The Lullaby Trust released an animated video to help spread awareness about safer sleep for babies. "We have created the Safer Sleep for Babies animation to equip all parents with the knowledge they need to ensure their baby is sleeping as safely as possible," said Francine Bates, chief executive of The Lullaby Trust. Other than putting babies to sleep on their backs, it reminds parents of what else they can do to make sure babies are safe from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). (huffingtonpost.co.uk)
5. Baby who "died" is alive and going home! Baby Lincoln Seay was diagnosed with severe heart defects while still in his mother's womb. Shortly after his birth, he needed open heart surgery, and three months later, a heart transplant. He was finally getting a heart but as he was being prepped for surgery, his heart stopped and he died. The doctors quickly opened his chest to manually compress his heart and connect him to a heart bypass machine. It only took 12 minutes to do what normally would take two hours. A few hours later, Baby Lincoln had his new heart, and everything is right in this world. Mindy thanked his husband Rob who took care of everything else -- moving closer to the hospital, taking care of the kids, school, chores, everything -- so she could focus on attending to Lincoln.
