Which mug are you speaking of? The regular mug is about $30.72 at today's exchange rate (which is close to what you'd get if you use a Capital One card).

Very clever of William, I wonder if the RF caught this before approving the name?

He may well have decided to honor his mother by honoring her family by using their names while at the same time making it seem he was using RF names.
 

At first, I thought the media was doing an overkill comparing the dresses but with the names, I think both the names and the dresses were for Diana.
Maybe. But I rather doubt that the sole reason they chose those names is because they're the names of his mother's nephews- ie a way to honor his mother. I just find it hard to believe that William (and Kate) decided their son's entire name had to be all about Diana. I'm sure he and Kate liked the names, felt they fit their son, was appropriate for a future king....as to whose side of the family....who knows. Could have been both. William certainly seems close to his Windsor side of the family. I find it difficult to believe he sat there and came up with names intended to honor his mother but made to look like the RF. This is his son. Seems a bit devious to me.

As for Kate's outfit....who knows. BUT- Kate still dressed like Kate. Kate's worn polka dots before. The style was a Kate-style. She wore heels.

Dear God! every child specialist, parent guru, dietician, trainer, some well-meaning, mostly money-grabbing are all over the media.

GGGrrrrrr. It's so BORING!

Yes, I know she wore heels. I thought back to when I left the hospital after giving birth. I never could have balanced on those heels that soon. Kate's ability to balance on heels is remarkable, slightly akin to Cirque de Soleil. She is amazing.

Some peoples on Twitter (and a person on CNN) Are saying that Catherine manages to do what Anne Boleyn and Catherine cf Aragon couldn't do... Produce a Male heir and that they are in heaven say some girls have all the luck. Also someone said that Henry VIII is probably rolling over in his grave because William got a son on his first try.

I didn't know we were living in the muddle ages...Will at least Catherine wont have to worry about getting her head chop off now.

I love how it's all "that's not what we meant and if our cover, which was all about her losing weight in the future, implied that we think she needs to quickly lose the baby weight we're sorry."

Baby has been pushed aside; all that matters is that Kate is stick thin as soon as possible. And if the new mums out there don't get back to size as quickly as possible, they have somehow failed. What a horrid front cover!

And to think that so many entire generations of babies survived just fine travelling long distances without a car seat (myself included).

Absolutely! I remember a lot of the fun of traveling somewhere was bouncing around the back seat like a maniac! And then falling asleep and laying across the seat - no such thing as seat belts back then.

Sitting on my grandma's lap and cozily falling asleep was priceless. I still remember the smell of lavender in her clothes. The price of being really behaved on one of these 4-5 hours trips to the seaside was a sip (1 sip!!!) of Pepsi upon arrival. Oh, well, but then we missed on the whole consumer driven society as kids.

It's amazing how strict the rules are on car seats now. I am a midwife and in the UK (and I think other countries, but it's a definite in the UK) that babies are not allowed to be carried out of hospital unless in a car seat. It is a legal requirement, whether the child is being driven home or not. It is quite a recent thing though as Lady Louise travelled home in a bassinette, not a car seat.

I have always wondered what the psychological impact of these silly rules might be upon those babies thus deprived (on so many occasions) of the physical contact with the mother/father. I believe this whole "safety" craze is getting way out of hand.

I think the psychological impact of a child not in physical contact with a mother or father for a short time is negligible.

It's not unusual for children to go without physical contact at various times during the day. I always put my kids down when I prepared dinner for example. Having them hang on while I worked over a hot burner was unsafe. They both survived.

This is a study performed by the federal government explaining how many lives have been saved by infant car seats, booster seats, seatbelts, and motorcycle helmets.

Unfortunately, such safety regulations are usually put in place because of tragedies. I don't know about babies specifically, but, for example, I saw a report in the last year or so that said their are fewer annual traffic fatalities in the US are lower now than they were in the 1940s - despite a huge population increase. I can only imagine that that's largely down to safety regulations, including car seats.

Car seats were the norm by the time I was born (though rules weren't as strict as they are now), I don't think it had any traumatic psychological effect on me, other than the fact that I was terrified of riding through car washes as a child, but my mother still soothed me.

It is interesting on how many changes there have been, though - I was telling my mom about how impressed I was that William got that baby seat in the car so fast (and in front of so many people!) and she was like "yeah, well, they're easier to put in now because the cars are built for them, you can just snap them right in!; they were a major pain back in the day!"

Your mom is right, newer car seats just snap in. Some of the people who criticized William probably aren't familiar with the newer models.

Some people have said that the baby wasn't placed within the car seat correctly, but George was put in the car seat inside the hospital, so I would think the medical and security professionals would have said something if he was incorrectly placed.

First of all, natives who use baby carrying devices (nearly all of Native America, but also other places - like Hawaii) are not turning out "deprived" or substandard babies. One can ponder whether 24/7 contact with a parent is "natural" (it's certainly not the world norm over our history of being H. Sapiens).

Second, to those of you who (like me) bounced around in the back seats unsecured (although my parents did have a crib-like thing strapped into the backseat for my journey home, I wasn't strapped into it), I will respond as people here do frequently:

but you're not part of a world famous family whose every move is scrutinized.

If that scrutiny is causing a lack of child safety (it's not; people are totally uneducated about the kind of carseat that William and Kate are using - but that's a separate point), then yeah, complain about it. But since most people don't understand that it was the (safer) sort of carseat that doesn't involve a possible failure of a seatbelt (which happens - there are lawsuit), they should probably just watch and not criticize.

I agree that the hospital staff would not allow improper baby handling (and it looks to me like everything was checked out in advance). If people think that British Royals are actually incompetent and stupid, they should just say so - because no one since 1981 has been going home from any good hospital in either the U.K. or the U.S. without a proper carseat.

This baby was transported in a proper carseat. The last three or four posters are on the modern page (and earlier posters saying it's better to be on grandma's lap - explicitly or implicitly - are advocating an unsafe practice).

Infant death rates are still declining, so pulling the "everything was great 60 years ago" theme doesn't work out statistically - but even if it were only a slight difference, what sane person would take the slight chance with their own baby?
