I absolutely love reading and comparing the ways that others around the world raise their babies and learn how to do their best at parenting. I love the comparison of Baby Shower Traditions around the world, like how France doesn’t hold a baby shower before the baby is born, but a year after they all get together and celebrate. In Great Britian it’s a huge celebration with gifts averaging over $100 (I’d move there to have a baby – but not sure how many I’d like to be invited to!) They also talk about cultural differences in paid maternity leave which leaves this U.S. Mom feeling a bit deprived of baby time.
