Thanks again to all the readers who participated in the first (and perhaps only) giveaway on Mothering Outside the Lines.
Winners were chosen at random by Random.org.
The five lucky winners are:
Val, who gets a signed copy of the Baby Bonding Book for Dads.
Rachel, who gets the wool diaper cover.
Eve, who also wins a signed copy of The Baby Bonding Book for Dads.
Casey, who wins the Doubleday cookbook.
and Clarissa, who also wins a signed copy of the Baby Bonding Book for Dads (this seems to be a popular item among our winners!).
Plus we have three alternate winners (since three of the first winners wanted the same thing and I am the kind of person who likes to give people what they want!), Michalena, who gets the sassy red backpack, Keely, who wins the newborn knitted hat, and Erin, who wins the memoir, If A Tree Falls.
I’ll be contacting you to get your addresses to send you your goodies.
On Fridays I teach a writing workshop at my daughter’s school (guess whose daughter did not sign up for it?). Before I head over there, I wanted to share some news from the net.
I have an Op-Ed in the New York Times about whether moms and dads should be allowed to take pictures of the birth of their baby: Change Hospital Culture.
The FDA is investigating febrile seizures caused by this year’s flu vaccine. Australia and Finland both halted their flu vaccine programs after hundreds of children reported having worrisome neurological side effects, including high fevers, seizures, and narcolepsy.
A new University of Michigan study tracks the impact of maternal depression during pregnancy and postpartum on infants,
and the Toronto Globe and Mail writes about whether circumcisions should be outlawed, interviewing people on both sides of the debate.
Happy reading. Happy weekend. See you next week!
