So as we celebrate the birth of the 3rd in line to the British throne - a wonderful baby boy (8 pounds 6 ounces – that is one sturdy baby!) – I thought I’d share with you lovely Yanks, the words we use for OUR baby stuff over here across the pond.
Just in case you get confused with all the terms that the press here in the UK might be using when it comes to all things baby…
If you’ve ever visited the UK and asked for some chips, you may have been a bit surprised at the salty hot spuds that were brought to your table – what you would call French fries, and not the chip snack that you were after. Now if you’d asked for a bag of crisps… then you’d have got what you were hoping for.
So, here is my guide to all the Mom stuff that you call one thing, and we call something completely different!
And Congrats to Kate and William! (You may not be sleeping for a wee while… but it’s all worth it!).
