The skinny: Babies born in unexpected places, Subway shop and subway stop

LABOR REPORTS

TWo Babies who could not wait

Two women had their babies in unexpected places last week: a Subway shop and a subway stop. After a woman burst through the door screaming that she was in labor, workers at the Minden, Nev., shop put down sandwich wrappers and trash bags Friday. They delivered a boy with help from paramedics who arrived just in time. Across the continent, Shavonnte Taylor, 23, was on a Washington Metropolitan Transit Authority platform on her way to an obstetrician's office Thursday when she had her baby boy at the aptly named L'Enfant Plaza.

ROYAL WEAR

Swamped after prince's photo-op

The new prince's new clothes have barely been glimpsed, but have led to a run on his cotton swaddle with tiny birds on it. When photos of newborn British Prince George hit the Internet, New York-based aden + anais was buried in 7,000 orders in nine days.

PERRY HAIR

Contest celebrates 1813 battle hero

Oliver Hazard Perry may be best known as a victorious naval hero of the War of 1812, but the 200th anniversary celebration of the Battle of Lake Erie will not neglect his impressive facial hair. The winner of a sideburns contest honoring the Navy commodore will be named this week, the Erie-Times News reports.
