If your infant is starting to outgrow the infant seat in your travel system or you just need a new stroller, this light weight model is just the one you are looking for. At just 12 pounds, your baby probably weighs more than this stroller. On bright sunny days, you will love the large hood with sun visor. The large basket has ample storage for a diaper bag and other essentials for those long walks in the park. When you are ready to go home, simply close it with one hand and be on your way.

In a time when most parents feel lucky to just have a job, the concept of work/life balance seems like wishful thinking. As parents, we feel pulled in so many directions. Sometimes you are a better worker than mother. Sometimes you are a better mother than worker. You are not alone. Life's Work: Confessions of an Unbalanced Mom is one mother's perspective on keeping all those balls in the air. It's also reassuring to know that if one of those balls falls, that's okay too.

This rocker is a great gift for any expectant parent. I got one when I was pregnant with my second child and it survived until my third was two and half. It took a pretty good amount of abuse over the years. It has features that a parent and a baby could appreciate. It is colorful, fun and safe. We used it when our son had reflux and we needed a safe way to prop him up so he could sleep, which means we could sleep. I love this chair.

Do you ever wonder if the baby gift you're purchasing will even get used? Babies have so many different needs that it can be hard to predict what a new parent will need. Items on a registry can be too expensive. Instead of guessing what a baby will need, why not try a different approach? If you have to purchase an item for a set of twins, these matching onesies will definitely bring a smile to a sleep deprived mommy's face. They are comfy and snap close for easy dressing. Once the baby has outgrown them, you can save them as keepsakes because they are so funny.

As a parent of a child on the autism spectrum, I was so excited to have a chance to review this book. I had so many mixed emotions about this topic. After all, autism is about predictability and routine. It makes things like spontaneous road trips and day trips to stimulating places almost impossible. Or does it? Coloring Outside Autism's Lines: 50+ Activities, Adventures, and Celebrations for Families with Children with Autism really opened my eyes to ways a family can enjoy time together with just a few simple adjustments. Advanced preparation such as bringing your own food or planned breaks can open up whole new experiences. These experiences will not only benefit the family, but they just might open up a little bit more of the world to your child.

As a parent of a newborn, there are plenty of reasons you will be sleep deprived, but there's no reason one of them has to be worry. Give yourself peace of mind during the first few months with a Babysense Infant Movement Monitor.
