A lid for the crib?

We just purchased a crib for our eight month old son. Previously he spent his evening snugged cozily in the bottom of our pack and play, where he was quite comfortable and safe until he both grew out of it and was able to get his head over the top...

The great gift challenge

How old is too old for the crib?

We lead a pretty hectic life in our household. With three kids who range in ages from 3 to 14, I strive to keep life as easy and as low key as possible. This means that the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" policy comes into play. A lot. Most of the...

Are Bumper Pads Unsafe???

OK, folks, I am going to need your help on this one. As I near the end of my pregnancy I feel I may have read nearly everything I could get my hands on in order to help me be the best, and safest, mom possible. I've spoken with every other mom I...

Baby image of the day: still life with crib

The word holds such promise, such mystery. Sleep. It's as if the sky has opened up and the chorus of heavenly host is singing. Very very quietly. The world is suddenly still and you tiptoe out of the room, wincing at every creak in the floorboards....
