What does childcare look like when it works?, “By Chabeli Carrazana in the 19th”

I reported on how childcare doesn’t work for American parents. Always on the hunt for the silver lining, however, I loved reading this review about a childcare provider in Chattanooga, Tennessee that has existed for 150 years. The Chambliss Center for Children, with its focus on economic sustainability, could be a role model for other centers across the country: It operates two thrift stores, the proceeds of which subsidize childcare, and parents are billed according to income.

Childbirth is more dangerous and expensive for black mothers – but there are solutions“From Taayoo Murray in Parents

For a country that spends as much on health care as the United States, the maternal death rate among black women, which was 2.5 times higher than white women and 3.5 times higher than Hispanic women in 2019, is inappropriate.

Who is Jellycat really suitable for?“By Carla Ciccone in Romper

The first stuffed toy my older daughter took everywhere was a Jellycat branded owl, which used to be the softest one any of us has ever touched, but is now matted and stiff after almost a decade of cuddling. This charming article explains the appeal of Jellycat toys, not just for the Pipsqueak set, but for their parents as well. Ciccone finds the company deliberately appealing to the aesthetic of millennials like me: “It’s hard to imagine my two-year-old being drawn to a pair of olives on a small branch, each with their own little legs and a satisfied grin; an espresso cup with a bold brew on sturdy little cord legs; or a smiling piece of sushi. “
