Bentley Yoder was born with the odds stacked against him-- born with a brain outside his skull. Bentley's parents, Sierra and Dustin were told by doctors that discovered Bentley's rare condition called cranium bifidum, that Bentley was simply 'incompatible with life.' 



Bentley's parents refused to quit on him though, and decided to go through with the pregnancy, 'just to see him before saying goodbye.' To everyone's surprise Bentley came kicking and screaming into this world on time, on October 31, 2015. He went on to develop normally, save for the critical parts of his brain on top his head, and left nearly all doctors at a mere loss for words over how this could be so. 

Fast forward four months, and Bentley's parents were actively seeking out the nation's foremost leading authorities on the brain surgery front, with hopes to find a team capable of performing the surgery necessary to relocate parts of Bentley's brain back inside his skull.

They found Dr. John Meara at Boston Children's Hospital, who planned and practiced the pending procedure using 3D-printed models. On May 24th the surgery commenced, and finished with success six hours later. 



A month after the surgery Bentley shows all signs of being just fine, but only time will tell whether things like his vision were impaired for the long run. 

The Facebook page 'Life of Dad' has issued a #CheerioChallenge to all of their loyal followers. Competition is getting serious and families are sacrificing hours of precious parenting time to try to outstack each other.

Currently, the record for most Cheerios on a child's face is at 17.

Worried you might subject your kid to unnecessary ridicule by giving them a needlessly unique name, or that their peers may hate them simply because you picked the "Jim Bob" of this generation?

Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West welcomed their second child into the world this weekend, who weighed in at 8 pounds, 1 ounce. He was born a few weeks early, but aside from being thrown into a world of celebrity before he left the womb, little boy West is totally healthy.

Throughout Kim's pregnancy, the world has been speculating about what the couple would name their son. Would they call him "South" to match his sister North West? Kim rolled her eyes at this suggestion, but did entertain the slightly less obvious "Easton." Turns out she and Kanye decided to ditch the direction theme altogether and have named their son "Saint West." Baby Saint reportedly has no middle name, but boy is that a lot to live up to!

Kim's sister Kourtney gave birth to a little boy named Reign last year, so it looks like this whole new generation of Kardashian's has big shoes to fill.

Cutest.Avenger.Ever.

Baby Collier was born this past July prematurely, and so his dad, a professional prop maker named Eric Hart, decided to make him a tiny Halloween costume to help him feel "brave."

"I came up with Iron Man because he's been hooked up to all those machines and wires, and that's similar to what Iron Man went through," he said.

The costume was made out of foam, a red onesie, and some yellow fabric, and - in case anyone was worried - the baby only wore it for a minute, according to the video.

He said that despite not knowing when Collier will be healthy enough to go home, they want to make life as normal as possible for him in the meantime.

"Even though we're in the hospital, we're trying to do everything that a regular family would do and celebrate all the holidays."
