- Joanna Kearney – February 10, 2021 – one nappy change, five nappies
The dream feed nappy change challenge: keep baby asleep, while mum breastfeeds and dad simultaneously changes the nappy. Then place baby seamlessly and sleepily back in the cot. Easy?
- Joe Kearney – February 9, 2021 – introducing Lyra Annabel
We did another baby! We have a second girl who sleeps well (so far...), and a big sister who makes sure there's always a teddy nearby.

Four weeks in and we're beginning to learn how a baby fills a day.

- Joe Kearney – January 8, 2018 – results are in
My little brother won, the hive mind averaged out to an exceptionally good score, and I got to play with some inconsequential data while Eleanor had a nap. But first, poo.
- Joe Kearney – January 3, 2018 – introducing Eleanor Margot
We did a baby! Giving birth looks really hard, and my wife is a hero. The first week of Ellie's life has been a whirlwind of hospital visits, poo, sleep deprivation, and becoming besotted with a new tiny human.
- Joe Kearney – December 20, 2017 – preliminary results
What better way to pass the time while waiting for a baby to be born than to engage in a spot of descriptive statistics on an unnecessarily complicated survey of predictions on the baby!
- Joe Kearney – October 31, 2017 – time and babies
We're having a baby! We have no idea what will happen, and don't understand what will take up so much time!
