Hardman’s Theorem on Rotary Wing-Induced Reproductive Sex Ratios. Impressive.

I was responding to the earlier post that stated both William & Kate have blue eyes, so the baby would also.

Its said July 13. Diana gave birth to William 10 days earlier than the announced date. Babies come when they are ready. The announced date is 40 weeks which in many cases women don't reach therefore the belay arrives earlier which is normal. Kate is about 38 weeks pregnant so baby is due any day.

People have suggested that the announce date is not the real date and that she is due earlier, well personally I don't see why they would fake a date.

Kate did not announce the due date of this baby, all she said was mid-July in one of her walkabout

It's all over the news that UK babies sharing C and W's baby's birth date will be sent a memorial silver p from the Royal mint as a memento.

For all of us in not in the UK, what I did not know was that the 1-50p coins are like a puzzle that forms the Shield of the Royal Arms. It would be like the back of the Euro or US coins being a puzzle that would form up into a map of our area.

You can see all the coins here: 2013 My First Coins Baby Journal | Baby Gifts from The Royal Mint

You are right. No one said that July 11th or July 13th was the Due Dates, Not Catherine, not Buckingham Palace or Clarence House. Mail Online (which is not a accurate reliable source of information) said it was July 13th because someone told them or they somehow just came with a date made it seem like it was true, then other Lazy Journalists, TV Media and newspapers are too lazy to do some researching, reporting or checking with a reliable source decided to take Daily Mail word for it and made it out to seem like it was true when no one ever confirmed it! Then some people's read or hear July 13th and think it true because they read it which is how it Spread! But there was never a statement or Confirmation from the Duchess, Buckingham Palace or Clarence House about any due date, They only ever said mid July.

One of the most famous pictures of William is of his mother carrying him out of the hospital in that blue polka dot dress after she was released. I am sure you will get to see something of that nature.

I find t hard to believe the little one will sleep in the box, however it would be a cute gesture to the Finnish people to take a picture of the little one in the box and send it to the president as a thank you note.

Some of the things that are in the box are: baby clothes, bathroom accessories (eg. a hairbrush, I would imagine that a towel is included too), a cloth nappy set, a picture book and a teething toy.

Source: the second paragraph of the article

I think it's a nice idea. A relative of mine recently had a baby and she was given a similar box, but hers contained nappies and cream.

So is it fair to say nothing will happen until Monday 15 July, or thereabouts?

Interestingly, BBC NEWS AND SKY TELEVISION are not sending any TV Crews until at the earliest, next week! Yes, the newspaper reporters are at the hospital now, but no BBC/SKY TV News crews have any plans to attend until next week! Maybe, it is too expensive (equipment wise), or they have insider information?

Why would anyone put their baby to sleep in a cardboard box if they did not have to?

Not all new moms have a crib right away, and I believe that was the idea behind it. I thing it was ingenious actually -for those mothers who don't have crib. Many who receive the box don't have what is in there. Great idea for sure!

It's very common in Finland to use the box of this finnish maternity package as a first bed for the baby, for a month or two. The box is small and the baby feels secure in it, better than in a bigger bed. Many woman puts beautiful cloth to the sides of the box. The box is also easy to carry from one place to another at home.
