We use the Itzbeen Baby Care Timer pretty much everyday to manage the feeding schedule for our infant daughter. We consider it a key piece of gear for our family, and never leave home without it.
The Angelcare Baby Movement Monitor provides an additional layer of monitoring and safety for your baby during naps and at nighttime. It helped us sleep better at night, and we think it will help you too.
Cord blood banking allows families to store stem cells that are harvested at birth from cord blood extracted from a newborn baby’s umbilical cord.
In addition to receiving great parenting advice from family and friends, we also have some go-to websites that we like. Here are a few of our favorites.
A primary anxiety for new parents in the first few days after a newborn arrives is feeding. Here, we cover a very important aspect of feeding…the burp.
After careful consideration, we chose the Chicco Cortina Travel System because it collapses and opens easily and has good build quality.
Prior to the birth of our daughter, and over the past fifteen months since, we have received great advice and recommendations from friends and family. The following books were recommended to us, and we found them to be invaluable. We encourage you to pick them up at your local book store or borrow them from your local public library. Enjoy!
It is widely accepted/known that babies have the ability to communicate long before they are able to speak. This often leads to frustration for both the baby and the parents, as this communication breakdown is often at the core of basic fussiness and tantrums. Sign language can often allow parents to quickly understand what is bothering their baby or what the baby needs.
