The initial video of Arkell finding out about his wife's pregnancy has more than 10 million views.

In October 2015, Griffin-Graves' sister Melanie Griffin-Hamlin set up a GoFundMe page to help with Kaleb's medical costs. It has rasied ovr $9,000 toward its $20,000 goal.

Hospital charges couple $39.35 to hold their newborn baby

A man who posted a photo of a hospital bill after his wife delivered their baby said they were charged to hold their newborn.

>> Read more trending stories  

Reddit user halfthrottle said he and his wife "got a chuckle" when they saw the $39.35 charge, which was billed as "skin to skin after c sec."

"During the C-section, the nurse asked my wife if she would like to do skin to skin after the baby was born. Which of course anyone would say yes to. We just noticed it in the bill today," he wrote. "The nurse let me hold the baby on my wife's neck/chest. Even borrowed my camera to take a few pictures for us. Everyone involved in the process was great, and we had a positive experience." 

Many Reddit users voiced outrage about the charge, but one user who claimed to be a nurse said there was a valid explanation for the fee.

"I didn't know that hospitals charged for it, but doing 'skin to skin' in the operating room requires an additional staff member to be present just to watch the baby," user FiftySixer wrote. "We used to take all babies to the nursery once the NICU team made sure everything was OK. 'Skin to skin' in the OR is a relatively new thing and requires a second labor and delivery RN to come into the OR and make sure the baby is safe."

According to the La Leche League of Canada, skin-to-skin contact between mother and baby immediately after birth "helps regulate the baby's temperature, breathing, heart rate and sugar levels. It also calms the baby so he (or she) doesn't get stressed out or cry a lot."

"This is part of the operating procedure, where after the baby is removed, it is placed on the mother's chest and monitored while she is being stitched back up. It should be free, and it's ridiculous it's not," another Reddit user wrote.

Don't give kids homeopathic teething tablets, FDA warns parents

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration last week warned parents against using homeopathic teething tablets and gels as regulators investigate reports of infants and children suffering seizures and other health issues after taking the natural remedies.

>> Read more trending stories

The FDA zeroed in on tablets and gels distributed by CVS Pharmacy and Hyland's Homeopathy in a warning released Friday, although regulators noted that other retailers might sell the products or similar ones in stores nationwide and online.

The tablets and gels are unnecessary to get children through teething, Janet Woodcock, director of the FDA's Center for Drug Evaluation and Research, said in a news release.

"We recommend parents and caregivers not give homeopathic teething tablets and gels to children and seek advice from their health care professional for safe alternatives," she said.

Regulators warned parents to be particularly careful if children suffer from seizures, difficulty breathing, lethargy, excessive sleepiness, muscle weakness, skin flushing, constipation, difficulty urinating or agitation, all signs of belladonna toxicity, after taking the teething remedies.

The warning comes six years after the FDA warned parents against using Hyland's Teething Tablets. Regulators said a laboratory analysis found that the tablets used an inconsistent amount of belladonna, a substance that can be toxic in large doses.

Belladonna, also known as deadly nightshade, is not uncommon in homeopathic remedies and is used by Hyland's to combat redness, inflammation and general discomfort.

In a statement, Hyland's described the FDA warning as a "surprise" and said the company is "confident that Hyland's Baby Teething Tablets remain safe."

The company is cooperating with the FDA investigation, although it said it had yet to learn of any of the data supporting the FDA's warning.

The company's teething tablets are sold over the counter and are tested for excessive belladonna content and contaminants, Hyland's said.

"A 10-pound child would have to accidentally ingest, all at the same time, more than a dozen bottles of 135 Baby Teething Tablets before experiencing even dry mouth from the product," the company said in a statement.

"Additionally, the body clears belladonna alkaloids from any single dose in a matter of hours," making it unlikely that the substance would build in a person's system, the company said.

The company also worried about "rumors" that cause "fear and worry" about belladonna.

"This new FDA statement increases the confusion," the company said. "The safety and effectiveness of Hyland's natural homeopathic medicines is our top priority. That's why we work with regulators to ensure that our products meet the highest standards."

However, the FDA said the tablets and gels have not been evaluated or approved for either safety or efficacy by the government agency. Regulators said they were unaware "of any proven health benefit of the products."

The FDA is investigating the issue. Among other steps, regulators are testing product samples to determine whether there are unsafe levels of belladonna or other substances.

The pallbearers also will wear superhero costumes, said Hall, who is encouraging guests to dress as their favorite heroes.

Honest kids' menu at deli makes parents chuckle

Parents know how frustrating it can be when dining out with children, who are often picky or indecisive. A deli in Pennsylvania has developed a menu for kids that addresses those issues perfectly.

The Deli at Mansion Park in Altoona offers a kids’ menu with items like, “I Don’t Know,” which is a hot dog with french fries and “I’m Not Hungry,” which is a grilled cheese with french fries. Indifferent kids can order “I Don’t Care,” which is chicken tenders with french fries. For stubborn kids who don’t want anything on the menu, there’s “I Don’t Want That,” which is fish sticks with french fries.

Customer Nick Moist posted an image of the menu on Reddit, where it quickly went viral, receiving a great deal of support from parents. Deli manager Brian Stroh told The Huffington Post that the menu has been a hit since it was unveiled in September.

Breastfeeding mom claims deputy threatened to arrest her for being 'offensive'

A woman who was breastfeeding in Columbus, Georgia, took to Facebook after claiming a deputy threatened to arrest her for doing so, saying some may find it “offensive.”

Savvy Shukla uploaded a lengthy post to Facebook on Sunday explaining the incident. Shukla said she was at Piggly Wiggly with her sister and two children when a deputy came up to her.

Shukla said she told the deputy that Georgia law allows her to breastfeed in public. The deputy then fired back, she said.

“You just THINK you know what the law says and if your nipple becomes exposed I really don’t want to have to arrest you or you be arrested for being offensive. This isn’t like the first amendment where you can say something offensive,” Shukla claimed the angry deputy told her.

“I’m so upset about it and I understand why this type of harassment can cause moms to stop,” she added.

Muscogee County Sheriff John T. Darr wrote about the incident on his Facebook page Monday morning and clarified that breastfeeding is legal in Georgia.

"We are currently looking into this incident, and it will be addressed," Darr wrote. "Our office does not condone these actions and will ensure all officers know and understand the law. On behalf of the Muscogee County Sheriff's Office, I would like to personally extend an apology to the woman involved, and we hope that she knows that these are not the opinions or practices of the office as a whole."

Later, Darr told the Columbus Ledger-Enquirer that he talked to the deputy, who said he only told Shukla that she might want to "cover up" after customers approached him.

“I think she had the mindset that he said that she couldn’t (breastfeed), and that’s so far from the truth,” Darr told the Ledger-Enquirer. “That’s my problem. People put that stuff out there on Facebook without getting all the facts.”

Shukla took to Facebook again to respond to the article.

"I am FURIOUS!" she wrote. "No the Deputy didn't just tell me to cover and leave it at that. He ARGUED with me about the law and told me I just 'THINK' I know the law and THREATENED TO ARREST ME or that I'd be ARRESTED IN THE FUTURE. Are you kidding me!?"
