Grandparents... A great gift for grandparents is a calendar featuring photos of their grandchildren on every page. This is easy to order over the internet and costs around £15. You can buy calendars from these shops: - Snapfish at http://www.dpbolvw.net/email-1845710-10373609 (go to the personalised gifts section). Snapfish looks more expensive than the other options, but postage is cheap and if you buy two the price comes down. - Extrafilm at http://www.dpbolvw.net/click-1845710-10431308 Slightly less expensive than Snapfish but not as flexible - Vista at http://tinyurl.com/37uoc9 The calendars are cheap at Vista but the postage is expensive. Children... For children, what about a letter from Father Christmas? With "Mailed from the North Pole" on the envelope and personal references, the letter costs £4.99 from http://www.anrdoezrs.net/email-1845710-10367790 Friends For friends try a magazine subscription.

The study says that exposure to the compounds called PAHs prior to conceiving and when breast feeding reduces the number of eggs in a daughter's ovaries by two-thirds. PAHs are found in cigarette smoke, car exhaust, fumes from wood stoves and in charred and smoked foods. http://www.sciencedaily.com/ Babies can spot the good, the bad, and the ugly Babies are good judges of character long before they learn to speak, according to a new study. Infants as young as six months preferred characters which helped rather than hindered others in a simple puppet show. Researchers say the findings reveal that humans begin making social evaluations far earlier than previously thought. http://www.newscientist.com/ Baby TV show did not breach rules Channel 4 documentary Bringing Up Baby has been cleared of wrongdoing by media watchdog Ofcom, despite generating 752 complaints from viewers. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/7126534.stm If you would like to read this news as it happens, without waiting for this newsletter, then grab our newsfeed from http://www.under-fives.org/newsfeed.html It's free and instantly updates you with the latest news and events via e-mail, your web site or any news feed reader. ___________________________________________________________ Copyright jillstudholme.com , 2007 You are welcome to copy or forward any part of this newsletter, but please include this copyright notice and web address - http://www.under-fives.org/ Previous editions of this newsletter are archived at http://www.under-fives.org/news.html
