Until your baby starts talking, you may often wonder what she’s trying to tell you. If your newborn is fussy, puts her hands to her mouth, smacks her lips or turns her head toward your hand when you caress her cheek (a newborn reflex called rooting that causes her to turn toward a food source1), she may be hungry.2
Popular baby names come and go with the times, as you may have discovered when poring over the lists of name ideas for your little one.
The Social Security Administration says as of the end of 2010, the year’s 10 most popular girl’s names were Isabella, Sophia, Emma,
Olivia, Ava, Emily, Abigail, Madison, Chloe and Mia. For boys, the top picks were Jacob, Ethan, Michael, Jayden, William, Alexander,
Noah, Daniel, Aiden and Anthony.
