On Monday, a little after 10:00 am, Bobby, a black Labrador, pulled his owner, Jeff Kopp, down the road and toward a satellite dish. What Kopp initially thought was a rock or a rabbit was, in fact, a baby girl, evidently about six hours old. Miraculously, the baby, whose umbilical cord was still attached, had survived her ordeal, thanks to Bobby, Mr. Kopp, his wife, Pam Kopp, and Mr. Kopp’s daughter...

It would begin in a fertility clinic, where actor Jason Patric donated sperm so that his ex-girlfriend Danielle Schreiber could have a baby. Later, his parents would reunite and then split up and then, after a contentious custody battle, find the love they always knew was there, wed and live happily ever after. But this story begins in Hollywood, so there is no marriage; there are many breakups, separate residences and legions of lawyers -- and there is a cause that other...

For most of Valarie Watt's pregnancy, her son, Noah, was developing just fine. That all changed in the final few days. "All week, I knew," Watts reflected. "He wasn't moving as much. I was very nervous." His umbilical cord had become pinched in the womb, and Noah was stillborn last July. Even so, she wasn't ready to...

For a girl, there are just so many names that dredge up bad memories. Monica is obviously out. Jennifer, no matter the spelling, simply wouldn't be appropriate. Barbra, Markie, Elizabeth, none of these appropriate. Cute baby names like Dolly or Sally won't even work. What about the great classics, like Kathleen, Linda, or Deborah? Very much out. Paula? Don't even think about it. Even some of the more ethnic and unusual names like...

    Spanish researchers have developed a gourmet sausage made from baby poop. Yes, baby poop. More specifically, they’ve used a strain of bacteria derived from infant feces. Writing in the journal Meat Science, the scientists described how they took 43 fecal samples from infant diapers provided by parent and midwife volunteers. Using three strains of probiotic bacteria they isolated from the dirty diapers, the investigators cooked up several batches of pork that resembled a type of fermented Mediterranean sausage known as feut. Experts said it is not nearly as revolting as it sounds.
