Did you know that nearly half of all children have tooth decay by the time they reach kindergarten? To prevent early tooth decay, get into the habit of wiping your baby's teeth and gums every night before bed. Limit your baby's intake of juices and sweetened foods and drinks. Finally, one main cause of cavities is the transfer of decay-causing bacteria from a parent's mouth (usually the mother's) to the baby's mouth so avoid putting things like pacifiers into your own mouth before putting it into baby's mouth.View Thread

Try gently pressing down on the opposite nostril when you're suctioning a baby's nose to get a better seal. You may need to choose a bigger bulb syringe if nothing's coming out, or just wait until your baby sneezes and let her clear her nose herself!View Thread
Sure they're cute, but are they worth the potential risk?
Between 1985 and 2005, 27 children under the age of 2 years died and 25 were injured because of crib bumpers, mostly due to suffocation, entrapment and strangulation. Bumpers were originally used when crib slats were farther apart in order to prevent babies’ heads from becoming caught between the slats but current regulations require crib slats to be no more than 2 3/8” apart to avoid such problems. Crib bumpers are therefore not necessary and are especially not recommended once baby is rolling, crawling, or pulling to stand. If you still choose to use a bumper, it’s best to select one that’s thin, firm, well-secured and not pillow-like, but keep in mind that even firm ones can cause entrapment.View Thread
I know i'm filling this discussion bored up but I haven't had any new moms to talk to. At 3 weeks what activities can you do with your child to help them with eye sights and to help them get on track normally. I don't know when they can start seeing things where there interested in them. I know his hearing is good as when I talk to him he stops crying but what can i do to make sure he can see. I don't really know how to word my question but hopefully someone will understand what i am trying to askView Thread
