Is Your Pregnancy Test Worth $1 Million?

The big business of celebrity baby announcements.
A roundup of new guidance and stories from NYT Parenting.

The first time I noticed celebrities flaunting their positive pregnancy tests on social media was in 2013, when a handful of reality stars ran sponsored content featuring their pink pee sticks. Eight years later, celebrity pregnancy is even bigger business, as Janet Manley explains in a piece this week:

The amount of exposure a brand will get by sponsoring a pregnancy announcement is "exponential," said Sarah Boyd, a vice president at Socialyte, which brokers marketing deals for influencers and celebrities. The fee depends on "their fame and their relevance at the time," she said, and likely diminishes after their first child. Ms. Boyd estimated that someone like Kylie Jenner could ask for more than $1 million.

Who knew that a photograph of what is essentially medical waste could be so valuable? Also this week, Lydia Kiesling muses about why she reveres the parenting book "How to Talk So Kids Will Listen and Listen So Kids Will Talk." Alice Lu-Culligan and Akiko Iwasaki, who are both medical researchers, have an op-ed about the Covid vaccine myths that are scaring women. The bottom line: "For any woman who is pregnant, nursing or trying to conceive, contracting Covid-19 is almost certainly more dangerous than getting immunized."

Worried about your teen's intake of fruits and vegetables? We have tips for you to help them get those nutrients. Want some music you can put on in the car that will be delightful for you and your kids, too? Here are seven albums to enjoy together.

Thanks for reading!

Tiny Victories

Parenting can be a grind. Let's celebrate the tiny victories.

I used to get mad when my 3-year-old dumped out soap in the shower; but now I buy the cheap liquid stuff on Amazon, refill old pump-top bottles, and let her go to town. She gets clean, and I get 20 minutes. — Nikki Campo, Charlotte, N.C.
