Watching television merely gets in the way of activities that such young children do understand, and do benefit them - most notably free play and engagement with other people. http://tinyurl.com/6jye3x4 Miscarriages misdiagnosed A number of miscarriages may be being misdiagnosed, resulting in the termination of otherwise viable pregnancies. http://tinyurl.com/3uu2vrs Bumpy nipple smells guide babies to milk You may not wonder why women have bumps around their nipples but it has bemused many.
