How to use baby in a sentence?

  1. Polk County:

    A little 5-year-old beautiful baby was crushed to death, had he been in his home country last Saturday night like he should have been, our 5-year-old beautiful little girl would have been alive.

  2. Melanie Lee:

    When it broke down, I broke down, now I don't have my baby, now I don't have transportation. How am I supposed to stay active in my grandchildren's lives ? How do I do anything ?

  3. Cara Hermanson:

    Baby corn has a different texture, more of a snap to it, canned baby corn is cooked a little bit, so instead of having these layers of slightly sweet and earthy and very vegetal, it tastes like the liquid. It’s crunchy but mushy at the same time. It doesn’t have the snap, the crunch and the life that fresh corn has.

  4. Pete Mercurio:

    She was able to make quick decisions to place that baby in a pre-adoptive home as quickly as possible, so he didn't languish in the system.

  5. Andrea Braverman:

    This study shows that surrogacy can work well, and it can work well over the long term, but it doesn’t tell us what conditions made this possible, personally, when I talk to surrogates after they deliver, they don’t look at it as giving up their baby, because it was never theirs to begin with. It is an amazing, personal life experience that people go through together and the fact that they come out of it feeling positive doesn’t surprise me.
