The BABIES are coming!

Last December I posted about an upcoming documentary, Babies, which follows four different babies around the world during their first year of life. I just learned that it will be released in theaters--quite appropriately--on Mother's Day Weekend! I've never cared about getting a Mother's Day present before, but this year I really really want see this film.

If you haven't seen the trailer yet, you really should:

Here's a bit more about the film, from the official website:
Directed by award-winning filmmaker Thomas Balmès, from an original idea by producer Alain Chabat, Babies simultaneously follows four babies around the world – from birth to first steps. The children are, respectively, in order of on-screen introduction: Ponijao, who lives with her family near Opuwo, Namibia; Bayarjargal, who resides with his family in Mongolia, near Bayanchandmani; Mari, who lives with her family in Tokyo, Japan; and Hattie, who resides with her family in the United States, in San Francisco.

Re-defining the nonfiction art form, Babies joyfully captures on film the earliest stages of the journey of humanity that are at once unique and universal to us all.

USA Today recently featured a review of the film. Click on on the image below to read it.

Disclosure: The company producing Babies asked me to spread word about the film, in exchange for a chance to win prizes such as diapers or strollers. I don't need those items, but I wanted to share the film anyway. I can't wait to see it!


  1. I can't wait to see this movie. Thanks for commenting on my blog..I never know who reads it unless they comment. I have been following your blog for a while now and LOVE what you post. I was just showing my husband this movie trailer on your blog. I am guessing you found my blog through Heather(Bee in Your Bonnet)..she is a friend from Provo. Thanks for reading my blog and I will look forward to more from yours!

  2. Hey Sarah! I actually found your blog through my stat counter. Every so often I see where people are coming from, linking to, or what words they're searching to find my blog.

  3. I first read about this movie on Lactnet and I loved the trailer! I assumed there was going to be lots of breastfeeding because of the 3 foreign babies and got excited! A movie in American theatres where women are going to be breastfeeding and it's not the punchline of a joke, it's just a normal part of parenting. Awesome! This line in the link you posted to makes me a bit squeamish:
    "The rating is a family-friendly PG, mostly for breastfeeding-related nudity."
    So the movie is family-friendly, except for the breastfeeding? Vom.

  4. I so so so so want to see this! Can't wait.
