New York, NY (PRWEB) May 3, 2007
Babyhold.com has unveiled the latest trend for naming babies. The new trend for naming babies is “unique”! More parents are choosing unusual baby names instead of those that are more traditional and popular. A poll conducted over the past few months shows an overwhelming 63% of more than five thousand U.S. voters preferred to name their baby with a unique name that no one in their area had. The next choice in line was naming a baby after a family member, which received 19% of the votes. Names from the Bible came in third, receiving 10% of the votes. Choosing a popular baby name and naming a child after a famous person ranked in last. What has influenced the rise of the new trend in baby naming? It seems that more and more parents are looking for the most inventive and distinctive name for their new child.
Traditional baby names stemming from religious or cultural origin have been given by parents expressing their pride in their cultural and religious heritage with the desire that their children will continue the noble traditions and way of life that have been upheld by many a generation before them. Popular names have come and gone, but tradition has remained for centuries, defining an ongoing stream of given names in various cultures and peoples. So what is this new desire to stem away from tradition and search for the most exotic name one can find?
Today’s multi-cultural society, fueled by the Internet and access to multiple cultural traditions have made today’s society less traditional. Tradition requires boundaries, and when none are present society becomes less defined and more universal. Perhaps it is a subconscious response to this new society that is sparking a desire to find the most unique baby name. With tradition practiced less and our senses and wonder exposed to such a vast array of different lifestyles and world cultures, it is no wonder that is it such a growing trend to look for the new, the fresh, the most inventive. With the best intentions for their future child and its success in life, parents are looking for the name that will distinguish their child from the crowd and give them an individuality that will follow them throughout their lives.

A stranger walks up to you with pen and paper in hand and starts asking personal questions. Questions like, ‘What’s your birth date?’, ‘Where do you live?’, ‘Where were you born?’, and ‘May I take a picture of you?’ Well, unless you have a serious case of compulsive over-sharing disorder, there’s no way you would consider answering the stranger’s questions. Then why would you give that same information about your new baby to anyone with an internet connection?
New parents are excited to share the accomplishments and adventures of their little ones with families and friends — and the modern parent often turns to the Internet as a way to reach an audience of loved ones. It’s simple: set up a blog, start writing, add pictures and a few videos, and suddenly Aunt Jamie is seeing little Spencer’s first steps as if she lived next door! The problem is, most popular blogging services are meant for adults; and what many parents don’t realize is they’re attracting some other very unwelcome visitors.
Identity thieves have clued into blogging as a new and growing source for accessing personal information from one of their favorite targets: babies and children. And while some websites developed specifically with kids in mind have incorporated secure password access features, one newcomer to the field has taken extra steps to ensure that no one — and they mean no one! – gets to read about Emily’s trip to the dentist or see Aiden’s new dance moves unless they have been specifically invited.
Launched in May 2007, Bundlo, LLC has all the goodies parents want from a blog site — photo management, site customization, even an innovative on-line babybook — while taking security one step further. Not only is every site password protected, but visitors must be invited by site administrators (that means the parents) who manage their children’s “bestest friends” through a simple control panel. It’s an extremely simple, yet very effective, system.
Bundlo takes security very seriously, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have fun — lots and lots and LOTS of fun! Designed and written for the modern parent who’s still a kid-at-heart, Bundlo’s bright, fresh, cheeky presence also belies a powerful and highly functional service worthy of the most demanding web geek. And they make it so easyfor the non-geek parent who just wants to share their trip to the zoo with the grandparents.
To check out all the bells and whistles, parents can sign up for a free accountthen, if and when they decide they need a few more bells and whistles, they can upgrade for just $ 6, $ 9, or $ 16 monthly (with the option to change or cancel their plan at any time for no charge). Parents also select where they want 10% of their monthly payment to be donated: St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Make-a-Wish Foundation of America, Shriners Hospitals for Children, or The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children.
“The idea for Bundlo hit me when the blog I was using for my own little guy just wasn’t offering me the tools and the privacy I wanted,” says Bundlo President and Founder Mark Barry. “I decided to build a system that would be ultra safe, fun for me as a parentand do good things at the same time.”

According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, each year more than 2.5 million children in North America are injured, some of them fatally, by hazards in the home. Because many of these injuries and deaths could be prevented, the Oregon-based company Parenting Baby To Three is distributing a free DVD pointing out common hidden hazards in the home to parents, grandparents and caregivers of infants and toddlers. Customers pay just a small shipping and handling charge for the DVD (http://www.childproofingthehome.com).
Atlantic City, NJ (PRWEB) December 4, 2008 –
The last two states to enact Safe Haven laws, Alaska and Nebraska adopted such laws in 2008. Nebraska’s law has received substantial media coverage due to its failure to limit the surrender age of children protected under the law. In November, Nebraska revised the law limiting the age to 30-days, the same as New Jersey.
However, the laws vary in age limits and legal surrender locations from state to state. These variations can create confusion for young women who often are in a position of panic after delivery of their newborn.
“These are not women who are getting regular prenatal care and planning for the delivery of their newborn. They are women who have fallen through the cracks. They have spent 9-months concealing and denying their pregnancy. They are unprepared for the imminent arrival of their baby,” says Susan Ferrier Co-founder and Vice President of the Baby Blue Foundation.
On December 4, 2008, the Baby Blue Foundation along with the Ventnor Police, Atlantic County hospitals, and the National Safe Haven Alliance will introduce the first National Safe Haven signs to New Jersey.
“We selected this date because it marks the 4-year anniversary of the day my husband Bill and I, along with the support of the community lay Baby Blue to rest,” says Susan. Blue’s body along with the afterbirth and presumable the mother’s undergarment stuffed in a sack washed up on a Ventnor beach in January 2004. It was Bill Ferrier who found her. He felt it important that she have a name and a proper burial. He and Susan began taking steps to see that it happened. It was 10-1/2 months before the Ferrier’s were able to fulfill their promise to Blue.
Since then the Ferrier’s founded a 501c3 whose mission is to honor the memory of Baby Blue and others like her through efforts to prevent future newborn abandonment and fatalities. The Foundation raises awareness about the prevalence, causes and alternatives to neonaticide (the killing of a newborn within the first 24-hours of life). Finally, in the event of future newborn deaths from abandonment or violence, the group seeks to provide dignified memorial service.
In its efforts to prevent new cases of newborn death and abandonment, the Baby Blue Foundation promotes awareness about the NJ Safe Haven Act. According to Susan, “the Foundation strongly supports Safe Haven legislation. It is the best, and in some cases possibly the only alternative for these young women.”
The New Jersey Safe Haven Act went into effect in 2000. Since the laws inception, 37 babies have been safely surrendered. While the number of safe surrenders surpasses the 28 newborns left in unsafe conditions or found dead, more needs to be done to raise awareness of Safe Haven Laws and to minimize confusion about the laws.
The National Safe Haven signs were designed to uniformly identify Safe Haven surrender sites. Hospital emergency rooms and police departments are the only legal surrender sites in NJ. A parent or designee can anonymously surrender a child under 30-days old to any police department or emergency room employee.
New Jersey’s first National Safe Haven sign will be unveiled Thursday Dec. 4 at 1pm. outside the Ventnor Police Department, located at 6201 Atlantic Ave., Ventnor. A representative from each Atlantic County hospital will receive a National Safe Haven sign to hang outside their emergency room. In addition to the hospital representatives, Ventnor Police Chief Wayne Arnold and Tracey Johnson, executive director of the National Safe Haven Alliance will be in attendance.
“We are excited to be spearheading the initiative to uniformly identify Safe Haven surrender sites in NJ but also through out the country,” Susan explains. NJ joins NY, IL, AZ, FL, VA and ME in the effort to create standardization.
Other hospital emergency rooms or police departments who would like to hang a National Safe Haven outside their facility should contact the Baby Blue Foundation at 609-703-4180. The Baby Blue Foundation is a NJ 501c3 accepting donations at P.O. Box 2408, Ventnor, NJ 08406 or online at http://www.babybluefoundation.org.

Baby BanZ Inc., launches their newest line in eye protection with their Adventure BanZ sunglasses. Clinically tested by one of the worlds leading authorities on sunglasses, Baby Banz products have passed the most stringent standards on sunglasses in the world.
Baby BanZ was founded in 2001 in one of the harshest UV climates in the world: Australia. There simply arent many baby and toddler sized sunglasses on the market, and like their parents, kids are subject to the sun too. Until the age of 8 or 9, children have no filters in their eyes to block out harmful UV light which can potentially damage their eyes. To counteract the terrorizing rays of the sun on young childrens eyes and to fill this gap in the market, the people behind Baby BanZ created the ultimate product in childrens sun protection with their Original Baby BanZ sunglasses.
Their new Adventure BanZ have taken the original design and added an embedded silicone nose and brow piece for added comfort. The lenses offer 100% UVA and UVB protection, high sun glare reduction, and are of Ophthalmic quality. Neoprene elastic straps reach around the head to keep the glasses in place, and come with a side adjustable Velcro closure that allows for years of wear as the child grows. The strap matches one of the 13 possible colors of the sunglasses and allows for flexibility, breathability, and comfort during use. The frame is made of shatter-resistant polycarbonate which keeps childrens eyes safe. Regular lenses can be replaced with prescription ones, and can come in a polarized version.
The Adventure BanZ come in both Baby BanZ sizes for ages 0-2, and Kids BanZ sizes for ages 2-5. Kids will love accessorizing like their mommies and daddies in these sleek and sporty sunglasses! Baby BanZ is also expanding to take on the market of kids fashion with their UV protection shirts, adjustable toddler sun hats, and swimwear.
Baby BanZ won the 2009 Toy Man Award of Excellence and were the first product in the awards history to get all 5 stars in each category! Their products have been featured in magazines such as Babycouture, Better Homes, and Green Living. After making their debut in Australia, Baby BanZ came to the American market and then expanded into South Africa, Japan, Germany, China, Greece, Switzerland, France, and many more gaining success in each location. Baby BanZ is also a part of InfantSEE, a public health program that promotes a lifetime of healthy vision for all children.

Jersey City, NJ (PRWEB) November 12, 2009
When New Jersey soccer coach Alex Lalaoui from The Soccer Learning Center met Lillian Whitted, a 27-year-old Corrections Officer from Jersey City, he knew he had to help. A father of two, Lalaoui listened as Whitted, a single mother of two boys, told him about her struggles to keep her youngest son alive. Now Lalaoui is hoping for a Thanksgiving miracle for the family, hoping the community that Whitted protects as a Corrections Officer, now comes to her aid at a soccer tournament he is organizing on Sunday, November 22nd at St. Peter’s College in Jersey City.
Life wasnt like this a little more than a year ago for the young mother. Whitted was in a committed relationship. She was about to give birth to a second child. Her career as a respected Hudson County Corrections Officer was nearing its sixth year.
