Birds of Prey
Who wants to hear a funny/weird story? My sister told me this, after seeing the crib mobile I made for the baby's room.
At Target, the cashier guy told my sister a fun fact about mobiles. Babies aren't entertained by them. They actually think that birds of prey are circling and will swoop down to eat them at any moment, so the baby's survival instinct kicks in and he will be quiet and still to avoid capture. So yeah, it is pretty effective, but parents have no idea that their newborns are terrified.
I mean, what? Extensive research (I googled it) shows that this is not true, but I think it's ridiculous that the Target guy was sharing crazy theories! I assume actual doctors or researchers would have figured this out and no one would use mobiles if this were the case. But no, random Target worker, you seem to be a super legit baby expert.
Anyway, there's a random story for your Tuesday! (and a random outfit)
