What is an infant feeder?

What is an infant feeder? My wife's former boss (mid 60's I guess) said that when she had her kid she didn't wake up in the night to feed him, she just hooked an infant feeder up to his crib and put some formula and rice cereal in it and the baby would feed himself. It sounds like something a hamster drinks out of, but for babies. I have googled and not been able to find anything but this picture that I am not sure is what this lady was talking about. Do you know what this thing is and can you tell me about it?

Attention TWINS!!! Never had twins in the family, now there are 2 fraternal girls on the way.

Toddler wants to stand in the bath... ?

Baby Gap has skinny jeans. For babies. Why.

My close friend is about to give birth to a baby girl. I'd love to do things for her (babysit, cook dinners, help with groceries) but since she lives across the country, a gift will have to suffice. She's already had a baby shower where she received swings, slings, pumps, bottles, blankets, tons and tons of pink baby clothing, etc, so I'd rather not get her any more of that stuff. Additionally, I'm her least traditional friend (read: happily unmarried, childless, liberal New Yorker) and I think she's looking forward to getting some sort of "alternative," gender neutral, really different baby gift from me. I'd like to deliver, but I have no ideas. I'd love some website/store/product recommendations. Where do new moms who hate Baby Gap and gender specific clothes and frilly baby things shop? Thank you!

I can remember lying down in the back of station wagons and pickup trucks, but what did we do in the VW?

How did kids under 2 travel in cars before car seats were the norm, particularly on long trips? My mom recalls tots in the lap and something called a 'car bed' (got any pictures?). Would little ones get lap-belted in to prevent them from falling off the seat on corner-turns?

No medicine for babies?

I'm expecting a baby in a few months and have questions about medicating infants and toddlers.

How do I try embryo adoption as a single woman?

I'm single and interested in embryo adoption as an alternative to domestic adoption. Family history plays a possible, small part but I mostly would like a baby soon. How do I approach clinics at my age and in my situation in order to use a service typically reserved for couples with actual fertility problems? I'm afraid I'll be seen as in a hurry and selfish. How do I stop feeling guilty for wanting to try in the first place?
