THOSE TWO New Jersey college freshmen who threw their newborn baby in a Dumpster a few weeks ago, perhaps after crushing its skull, made me think of another teen-ager and another discarded baby. For all their shared awfulness, the two cases evoke such different emotions, one must ponder why.Michelle Savage never made the pages of Time and Newsweek. doubt that many here in the Baltimore area ever heard of her. Like many young parents guilty of crimes against the just-born, she was poor, a resident of subsidized housing near Fort Meade.

Jenny Mohler lay on an examining bed holding her pregnant belly at Sinai Hospital in Northwest Baltimore. Sonogram pictures hung from a machine in the right corner of the room. She was nervous, unable to block a feeling of uneasiness as she waited for a specialist to come in and decipher the images. Just two days earlier, the Catonsville resident had received a call while sitting at her desk at a Catholic Charities health clinic in Baltimore, where she worked as a school counselor.

Editor's Note: Jerdine Nolen continues her series on language development skills. Her column appears biweekly. For many newborns, experiences shared with caregivers help to develop language. Crying and wailing are an infant's only means of vocal communication. As hard as they are to listen to, these cries have meaning. After determining that the baby isn't hungry or in pain, listen to your infant as she attempts to communicate with you. Show understanding by your proximity, touch or with eye contact.

Parents hoping to raise baby Einsteins by using infant educational videos are actually creating baby Homer Simpsons, scientists said today. For every hour a day that babies 8 to 16 months old watched such popular video series as Brainy Baby or Baby Einstein, they knew six to eight fewer words than other children. The makers of the videos sell hundreds of millions of dollars worth each year to parents aiming to put their babies on the fast track, even if they are still working on walking.

Q: Are cold hands a sign of sickness in a baby? My child's hands are always cold even though her body is warm.A: The temperature of the center or core of the body -- where the vital organs are housed -- is quite strictly regulated. That's why we measure body temperature through the mouth or rectum.Body parts that are far away, such as the hands and feet, are often cooler. Like the outer rooms of a house, they are more affected by environmental variations.When it is cold, the body conserves heat and energy by restricting blood flow to the extremities, making the hands and feet even cooler.
