Well just in case you know one who doesn't, Dolce & Gabbana comes to the rescue. The fashion label has announced the launch of its own line of perfume created specifically for babies, piggy-backing off that sweet smell of the infant that is some sort of magical combination of baby powder and innocence.

According to the Daily Mail, Stefano Gabbana says the new perfume is inspired by the smell of a baby and is “designed to cuddle and pamper every little boy and girl.”

I am so sensitive to chemical odors that I stay home most of the time.  Now you want to put chemical fragrance on babies.  WHY? In school I had a headache whenever I went to English Class.  Now I realize it was the teachers perfume.  I could smell it in the hall long after she had walked through that area.  I feel it is not necessary to perfume a baby and could be dangerous.  Please DON'T do this!

The people who buy this crap are the same people who voted in our current President....they both agree on spending money endlessly on stupid things!  How about putting that money into your kids college fund!!

Ok what next a animal perfume?  Oh yea they already did it.  So how about a insect perfume, then....    Come on people, why would you want to subject you baby to unwanted stench, that would probably come bach years down the line as some sort of allergy, or worse.  Wake up people, we don't need another crappie thing that is not needed...

I have always understood that the thousands of chemicals in fragrances were extremely unhealthy for babies and young children.  Being a sufferer of multiple chemical sensitivities, I think this idea of babies wearing fragrances is rather drastic. We can't seem to go anywhere but we're bombarded by perfume.

are they crazy - any parent that buys that for their child is not a very good parent.  Adults have a hard time with perfumes and you will torture your child with that.  It is disgusting

I've smelled babies.  They don't always smell nice.

    Kate Middleton is pregnant with her second child! A look back at her first pregnancy wardrobe

    Ever since Kate Middleton transformed into Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, in her Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen wedding dress, the public has embraced her elegant sense of style and her ability to mix high street with haute couture. So it’s only fitting that her maternity looks always follow suit. Early in her pregnancy with Prince George, the Duchess favored muted jewel tones in amber, forest, and tan in mostly flared silhouettes, and as winter gave way to spring, she let loose her penchant for pastels and English designers. A printed Erdem dress showed off her changing physique while a polka-dot Topshop look proved she was having fun with her pregnancy. A staple throughout was the fascinator, which she wore on her last five public appearances. As the world awaits and speculates as to what Kate Middleton will wear—and what gender baby she’ll have—the second time around, we’ve compiled our favorite maternity looks from her first pregnancy.
