News Roundup: Espresso Machine that Dispenses Formula, the Genderless Baby, and the Obama Girls

All the Jewish parenting news you probably didn’t have time to read this week.

-Nestle has rolled out a baby formula version of its Nespresso capsule coffee machine. There’s no option for foam, but it dispenses the formula “at precisely the right dosage and temperature, at the push of a button, in less than one minute.” While the company does have a penchant for getting moms in Africa hooked on formula, this machine is only available in Switzerland. For now. (The Guardian)

-Can you really raise a genderless child? I’m guessing no. And so are the ladies at Jezebel. They weigh in on the now famous Canadian baby named Storm whose gender is a big fat mystery. (Jezebel)

-Parenting by ZIP code. If you’ve ever moved with children, you probably noticed that each city has its own protocol when it comes to parenting. Birthday parties. School visits. Baby wearing. They do it differently in Seattle, Los Angeles, and New Jersey. (NY Times)

-The Psychological Warfare of Sasha and Malia Obama. Slideshow here. (New York Magazine)

-What happens when a marriage involves differing allegiances to baseball teams? Find out here. The editor of Jewcy is getting hitched and is blogging about the wedding plans.(Jewcy)

-Go the F— To Sleep is now a viral sensation. And I’m guessing more than a few of you have already seen a pirated version. Why is it so popular (aside from being hilarious?)”We are not supposed to not want to be with our children. We are not supposed to not want to be a parent all the time.”  (NY Times)

Did we miss anything?
