First Time Parents


Ah, the first baby. They always bring their parents so much anxiety:

'Our baby's the devil', say Colombian parents whose child can 'walk at four weeks and breathes fire'

This is news? Someone skipped the new parent classes offered by the hospital.

Black magic and evil spirits have captured the soul of a new-born baby in Colombia who can apparently already walk by himself and produce fire, his own mother has claimed.

Ana Feria Santos gave birth to her son last month but says her joy quickly turned to fear when she noticed that he had 'several abnormalities' - leading to fears in her community that he is the 'devil in disguise'. [...]

Her neighbours in the town of Lorica, near the Caribbean coast, also say he is possessed by a 'malign spirit' and that he is capable of producing fire.

This, they say, is because burn marks have been found on his clothes and a sofa where he regularly sits.

My daughters had that problem, too. Miralax cleared it up and it never happened again after about eight months. It's just a normal developmental stage. Nothing to be alarmed about.
