Newborn baby stuns doctors by holding her own bottle (in the UK)

A baby girl has amazed doctors with her ability to hold her own feeding bottle. Two-week-old Ammra was able to grasp her bottle alone just three days after she was born at Queen’s Hospital, Romford in Essex, her mother Onyi Chiedozie said.The 20-year-old, who is using a combination of breast and bottle feeding, said doctors and nurses were stunned by the baby’s ability to master her strong grip so soon after she was born.

this baby is gonna be a brain surgeon when she’s like 10

For people who are like big deal, she held a cup.

My nephew didn’t hold a bottle till he was like one.  Most babies don’t know how to process gravity or the concept of if you grip the bottle it stays close to you where you can suckle it and if you tilt it back the liquid is accessible and it’s a lot to process for a baby okay.

This baby is way ahead in neuromuscular and cognitive development. She’s one of the xmen probably, it’s really amazing, the equivalent of a baby saying it’s first word at 2 months old ok it’s really amazing

She’s one of the xmen probably

Y’all. READ THE WHOLE THING. START TO FUCKING FINISH.

It doesn’t go into detail about how Black sex workers are usually at higher risk for violence done against them, but the gist of the comic is very, very informative about sex work and HOW it works.

I love that this is a headline I lived to see.

I really enjoyed the first episode of this show. It pulled me along emotionally the entire time, and I haven’t had such a fun ride watching a modern TV show since House of Cards or Orange is the New Black. 

I was not ready for this today, but I am so glad it exists.

Aretha Franklin made a cover of Adele’s Rolling in the Deep.
