Suri Cruise STILL sporting a baby bottle

Suri Cruise is nearly two and a half years old. Heaven knows you couldn't forget that if you tried. And while she has more fashion sense than pretty much any other tot on the planet, there is one thing that seems to still give us all pause. No, it's...

Bumpy Labels: never lose your sippy cup again

When my daughter was little we poured through sippy cups at playgroups and the gym nursery and even at my in-law's home where cousins had the same cups. Bumpy Labels would have been helpful at the time, maybe they'll be helpful for you right now. The...

Charlene Prince Birkeland's Favorite Blogging Baby Stories of 2005

This is actually one of the easiest assignments I've ever been asked to complete - I joined the Blogging Baby team in mid-December so I have a narrow selection from which to pick my best stories! But I do have favorites, and they start with my boys. ...
