This Is Pregnancy Over 40

The risks and realities — and more new stories from NYT Parenting.
A roundup of new guidance and stories from NYT Parenting.

That wail echoing throughout your house in the middle of the night? It’s got an accent, according to Dr. Kathleen Wermke, a German scientist whose team decodes newborns’ cries. They’re helping medical professionals catch speech delays and giving parents new communication tools. (Visiting Dr. Wermke’s lab made for adorable photos too — see below.)

Also new to the site this week, Reyhan Harmanci investigated how being pregnant over 40 could affect her and the 100,000 other Americans who give birth in their 40s each year. Dr. Jen Gunter debunked seven fertility myths and shared her personal experiences caring for very premature twins. “While other new parents were figuring out mobiles or vibrating chairs, I was learning how to change a regulator on an oxygen tank,” she wrote. And, with the holidays coming up, Christina Caron outlined some factors to consider before buying your child a device.

A special thanks to those who shared stories about parental imposter syndrome. You can find some of them here. Have a great weekend!

Tiny Victories

Parenting can be a grind. Let’s celebrate the tiny victories.
On a long, tantrum-filled Sunday my husband and I decided to take our 2-year-old twins to the nature center to see the blub blubs (fishies), but just as we reached the doors we discovered they were closed! We quickly diverted to a nearby pet store where they could happily watch the cheap aquarium fish for nearly an hour. — Kelley Feighan, Cleveland, Ohio
