Lost Babies: A Comprehensive Guide to the Cuties

You may think that Lost is about time travel, faith versus reason, life choices, or a battle to determine the fate of the world, but really, it's about babies: How are they born? Who are their parents? What do their names mean? More often than not, they’re born into incomplete families; other times, there is an abusive or neglectful parent who haunts them. Sometimes, their parents die. This season we’ve met Desmond and Penny’s kid, Charlie, and Dr. Pierre Chang’s son, neither of whom is cloaked in death. Does this represent a meaningful break from the past, or are there heaps of tragedy lying ahead? Who cares, we just love the precious little faces of newborns!
