What’s the royal baby’s name? Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are still thinking about it

We are so excited about the birth of the royal baby (it's a boy!) and clearly, no one is more excited than Prince Harry.

He spoke to reporters this morning and said his little family is doing very well and that his son doesn't have a name yet.

"I'm very excited to announce that Meghan and myself had a baby boy early this morning, a very healthy boy. Mother and baby are doing incredibly well. It's been the most amazing experience I could ever possibly imagine," he told journalists gathered in Windsor.

"How any woman does what they do is beyond comprehension. But we're both absolutely thrilled and so grateful to all the love and support of everybody out there. It's been amazing so we just wanted to share this with everybody. [We're] still thinking about names. "


He continued: "The baby's a little bit overdue so we've had a little bit of time to think about it, but that's the next bit. But for us, I think we'll be seeing you guys in probably two days' time as planned as a family to share it with you guys and so everyone can see the baby. I haven't been at many births; this is definitely my first birth, but it was amazing, absolutely incredible. And as I said, I'm so incredibly proud of my wife and as every father and parent would ever say, your baby is absolutely amazing. But this little thing is absolutely to die for. I'm just over the moon."

We are over the moon for you Harry! And we totally agree, how women become mothers is absolutely amazing and the strength within us is beyond comprehension.

Rarely is a woman more concerned with what her body needs than when she's pregnant. We start to question and research everything, right? From swearing off turkey sandwiches to diving down the rabbit hole of prenatal supplements that make up what we lack, the stress of overthinking is real, mama.

One of the main reasons we launched the Motherly Shop is to help take some of that stress away. We've tracked down the best brands and products developed by people (and in many cases, women!) that truly work to serve the needs of real mamas, especially throughout the overwhelming transition into motherhood.

That's why we knew we had to introduce mamas-to-be to the science-backed and expertly-formulated protein collagen for pregnancy from Needed. And as one of our bestsellers, it's clear you've been looking for it, too.

These kids dishes don’t look like kids dishes

And that's exactly why my toddler loves them. ❤️

My 4.5-year-old is, let's say, spirited in his opinions. He very clearly knows what he wants and doesn't want (oh to have the confidence of a stubborn preschooler!). And what he doesn't want right now is anything that looks too babyish. "That's for babies," he'll say if I give him anything with primary colors or looks too miniature. He doesn't want the baby fork and spoon, he wants what grown-ups use. He doesn't want the baby plastic cups and plates, he wants the glass and ceramic ones.

Well, you can see where this is going.

I had to find something that would satisfy his "not a baby" opinions but still not shatter to pieces if he accidentally drops it on the floor. I had to find him something that's made for kids but doesn't feel made for kids.

The 6 biggest lies I believed before having kids

Just about all of us had set assumptions about raising kids before we became parents ourselves.

Just about all of us had set assumptions about raising kids before we became parents ourselves. Some of these ideas might have been based on our own ideas of how we would absolutely do things differently than everyone else. Others, we believed what everyone else told us would happen would apply to our littles, too. But, that's not always the case, mama.

Below are six of the biggest lies I believed before having kids—and the reality of what actually happened for me.
