All the right words, just not necessarily in the right order!

Ah, the perils of Google translate!

I have alerts set up with Google to let me know when terms such as ‘Baby Feed Wheel’, ‘Baby Medicine Wheel’ ‘Get Well Wheel’ ‘Chiggs’ etc etc are mentioned on the web, and I had a corker pop into my inbox recently. Looking into it, this is from a website that has been set up (by a non-English speaker!) to use a lot of keywords and get people to visit the site and click on adverts. Not a problem, there are a lot of them about, but it looks like this one has lobbed our description of the Baby Feed Wheel into a translation tool, with a rather interesting result…

What’s a Youngster Feed Wheel?
The Baby Feed Wheel is a really useful nursery merchandise for model spanking new mom and father that helps them keep monitor of baby’s boy’s feeding events – merely flip the numbered dial to doc the time when baby has his or her milk feed. Whether or not or not by way of the sleep interrupted night time time time, or the sleep deprived daytime when there are so many totally different points to think about, the Youngster Feed Wheel provides a clear reminder of the time of your Youngster’s Boy’s remaining feed.

New Mum News.

Tuesday, November 20th, 2012

More new mums are opting to breastfeed but very few stick at it for long enough, according to the latest UK figures from the NHS  (2010 Infant Feeding Survey). A  poll of more than 10,000 women was taken, showing that 81 in every 100 start breastfeeding, (up from 76 in 2005). However, after one week fewer than half of all new mothers are still exclusively breastfeeding. The commentary to go with the study says that new mums are facing the same common reasons for stopping breastfeeding- problems with the baby rejecting the breast or not latching on properly, having painful breasts or nipples and feeling that they had ‘insufficient milk’. 

In other breastfeeding news, there has been rather a lot of discussion on various social media platforms about a new breastfeeding dolly for little girls that has come on the market. Called the ‘breast milk baby’, the doll comes with a little top for a child to wear which has a couple of  little flowers on the front which are used to nurse the doll. The doll then needs winding properly or it wails. And the point that has caused most controversy?  The doll costs a whopping $89!
