It is right about pregnant women, but also for newborns, and toddlers.

It's the same in Danish child = barn.

If we're going to judge by Nikolai and Felix, who seem to be the most likely to compare with, the names weren't released until the Christening: Nikolai's christening was roughly two months after his birth, and Felix' also, though it was only a month with Frederik and Joachim.
Many people think that he will be baptized very soon. Reason: The dress the baby is going to fit is 100 years old and is a very small size so they have to hurry before he grows out of it :p

Actually, recent studies have shown that being exposed to a pet early in life can help to prevent a child from developing allergies later in life. Plus, they're great friends to grow up with.

Do you think they'll wait until after Christmas to baptize him, just so the baptism isn't overshadowed by the holidays? I'd hate to have to wait until January!

Thanks everyone for all the pictures, the articles and the comments. A special thanks to Kil (I'm sure it must have been a long wait) for the lovely pictures of the couple and the little prince. I think that Frederik, Mary and the little prince look like a happy, normal family with their first newborn.

Like with most things it is fine to have pets around children, as long as you don;t leave them alone.

At this stage, I would be more concerned if Mary had a cat. I have cats and love them dearly but you have to be so careful as cats like warm, snug places and have been known to get in the cot/pram with the baby and that is obviously very dangerous.

Apart from things like that it is wonderful to grow up with animals, I can't imagine not having a pet in my life.

I have a question too; what does it mean to be jaundiced? Does that mean a little bit tired or something?

I can imagine a newborn being tired (I don';t know if that's what the word means or not) -- after all, it's not just the mommy doing all the work to get him here:p

No where do I say ALL fairytales end happily.

As we have seen many have ended with divorce, death, and remarriage.
i am saying that charles and diana can still be considered a fairytale. Happy ending or not.

It refers to his colour. Jaundiced babies usually have a yellowish tinge to their skin. It disappears after a few days/weeks...I don't actually know.

The body produces bilirubin in response to newborns high red blood cell count. The baby's liver can not process it quickly enough so for few days the skins turns slight yellow. A normal process in most new borns.
