Has Heidi Finally Weaned Henry Off His Binkie?

March 11, 2010

In many of their paparazzi family shots over the last two years Heidi Klum and Seal’s son Henry was always the big lanky toddler out of the brood sucking a pacifier. I know weaning our little ones off this favorite oral fixation  takes time, but seeing Henry suck his binky and appearing to be such a big boy really disturbed me.

Maybe it’s because he’s boy child, a double standard in the other direction I know, or most likely it bothered me because of a street style trend few years’ back. It involved black males, including grown boys and grown men of middle and high school ages, sucking pacifiers and bottles. They thought this was cool and hip l, I thought look screamed boys trying to go back to the womb in need of therapy.

As a fellow mom, I’m not judging Heidi for your choice. As parents we have to find ways to comfort our children as long as possible. But honestly, I feel better knowing that Henry no longer has that habit. What do you think? Am I overreacting? Is there anything wrong with letting our children suck pacifiers beyond the age of three? POSTED BY RIR



Celebrity Tot Hotspot: Coldwater Canyon

March 10, 2010

Introducing Lifestyles of the Rich and the Thumbsucking.

Where can you see Gwen Stefani’s children Zuma and Kingston brushing elbows with Sharon Stone’s son Quinn?  It’s called Coldwater Canyon, dah-ling, and it is the ultimate playground destination for little scenesters with A-List parents.

This Los Angeles hotspot is located on North Mulholland Drive and features all the decadent luxuries that an A list child demands. Swings, slides, and teeter-totters scatter the grounds, offering the children a place to play, make new friends, and giggle over how intensely fabulous their life is, as celebrity kids are known to do.   

Just a few trendy tots on the scene, according to Celebrity Baby Scoop:

-Halle Berry and daughter Nahla
-Jennifer Garner and daughter Violet and Seraphina
-Jessica Alba and daughter Honor
-Heidi Klum, Seal and their kids Leni, Henry and Johan.
-David Beckham and Victoria Beckham’s kids.

And while the crowd can be VIP, there is no velvet rope so if you’re in the neighborhood, stop by. The park is open from dawn to dusk.
