1. Good for them. Taking care of your baby is

how you get to know your baby. And how your baby learns to trust.

Apparently, Diana's good mothering made an impression.

3. Good lord - give them a break ...

They seem to be caring, thoughtful parents who are making an honest effort to do the right things.
You can blame the media if you want, but I think they're handling it exceptionally well.

4. So do I.

They are very natural, caring parents. I think Diana did a good job too.

12. I was not poking at the Royals

Just the media frenzy, who are the ones who need to give them a break

6. The Duchess comes from a middle class home . . .

. . . and I suspect has her own ideas about what constitutes proper motherhood.

13. Yup.

I'm glad for them.

I would bet there are plenty of parents in the US that have a nanny or help almost immediately.

9. No need to let them bother you. Just tolerate it, it'll go away.

"Some cannot tolerate when others do not agree with them. This problem is the underlying cause of most conflicts. A little tolerance goes along way to making the world fit together."

11. I was being sarcastic and just found it funny.

It is the media frenzy that my poke was at, not the Royals or those who are glued to it.

10. I love how they're doing this.

Dad drove them home and they are caring for their child. Most couples would have Gramma there to help, so they're roughing it in a way.

15. Heh. Right after the queen showed up this morning to check out the little bugger,

Kate and William hightailed it to her folk's house out in the country. I'm sure they'll both need Grandma and Grandpa's help with the new little bundle, so this should be a good thing for everyone.
