If you are a teacher, caregiver or parent to a child with autism, it is important to keep trying new ways to reach the child. Thankfully, there has been a huge increase in research over the past several decades and we know so much more about the treatment of this disorder than we did just one generation ago. However, there is still so much to learn and the best teachers are often the children themselves. Ten Things Every Child with Autism Wishes You Knew is a book that can help you. It summarizes the basic features of the autistic child without over simplification. Behaviors are explained and strategies are shared. Most importantly, you feel empowered to help your child and encourage them on this journey. You will learn something and you can say, now I know.

This high chair might look little different than the ones you are used to, but it has all the features that you would expect from a traditional high chair. It is made of sturdy beechwood and has a five point harness to prevent your baby from performing any Houdini escapes. This Stokke Tripp Trapp® Highchair is super adjustable too. The seat and footrest are adjustable to the size of your child from approximately 6 months to adulthood. That's right. It even holds up to 300 pounds. A parent can even sit in it. How many other high chairs would you dare to sit in?

As babies grow into toddlers they tend to take their messes with them, especially if they are carrying their food around. Many parents have found dry cereal and other snacks in some very strange places. This no spill bowl can help solve that problem, at least a little bit. The inner bowl is weighted and connected to a ring which is connected to another ring with hand grips. The inner bowl always remains upright and food stays put. At least there's one less potential mess to clean up.

In these tight economic times, you may be looking for ways to trim the baby budget. A great place to start is the baby monitor. You might be tempted to outfit your nursery with high tech cameras and monitors, but a reliable audio monitor will do the job just fine. This one has an extended range and is voice activated so will be sure to never miss a sound coming from your baby's room. In the event there is interference, you can turn to any of the 27 channels to find the one that works best for you. If you are wearing the belt clip, there's even an alarm to let you know you might be moving out of range. That way you will know for sure that you are never too far in case your baby needs you.

Did you know February is National Children's Dental Health Month? It's never too early to set your children on the right path to good dental health. Products like this toothbrush make it easy for children as young as 4 months to learn how to grip a toothbrush and brush their teeth. Invented by a dentist, it's sturdy enough to remove bacteria, but gentle enough to soothe tender gums. This kit comes with 2 toothbrushes so you will have peace of mind that your little one will always have a clean toothbrush on hand. That's probably more than you can say about your baby's pacifier collection.

Some products seem like they have been around forever. There's a good reason for it. They are reliable, safe and effective. I don't think I could ever find a reason to use anything other than Johnson's Bubble Bath and Wash. My youngest was recently given a bottle of a new "modern" brand of soap as part of a gift set. Although the label insisted the product was organic and all natural, something in there burned my son's eyes. There's nothing worse than trying to rinse something out of your toddler's eyes while they are crying and trying to get away from you. I guess the upside of that situation is now I know for sure that there is no better way to get my little one clean.

Would would have guessed that there could be an improvement to an old standard like the glider? Now you can get a glider that reclines. That is such a great feature for a product like this. After spending so much time rocking a baby to sleep, you may not want to get up right away to put him in his crib. Now you can actually put your chair back down and get some rest for yourself.

Seeing your infant suffer through a diaper rash can be as painful for you as it is for your baby. There are so many remedies on the shelf it can be hard to choose the right one for your baby and when you need it, you really don't have the patience for too much trial and error. When my oldest used to get rashes, there was one cream that we could always count on to make the rash disappear: Triple Paste. It was so thick, it could be hard to put on, but it sure did the trick. Don't let the sticker shock scare you away. If your baby gets frequent rashes, this cream is worth every dime.

I just couldn't resist this adorable Hello Kitty blanket. I guess watching the news coverage of this massive winter storm moving across the country makes me want toasty things.

My first son had a toy like this for his crib years ago. It was one of the best toys a baby could have. The black and white contrast really seemed to hold my son's attention. He could grab and squeeze the panels to hear a bell or the rustling of paper. He also loved feeling the different textures. If you are looking for a toy that will hold your baby's attention as he grows, you found it in this Activity Puzzle and Crib Gallery.

Morning sickness was right at the top of list of things I didn't like about being pregnant. I was so sick during one of my pregnancies, my doctor was literally begging me to gain weight, "Eat whatever you can keep down, we'll fix it later." I was really excited when a friend told me that York Peppermint Patties always made his wife feel better. I tried those, but in the end it didn't work. I might have been better off with an herbal tea like this one. This Morning Wellness Tea blends Ginger Root, a well known nausea soother, with spearmint, peppermint, chamomile, lemon balm and a twist of orange peel for flavor. It's a great excuse to sit down, put your feet up and take some time to make yourself feel better. You might not love it as much as bag of Peppermint Patties, but then again, you won't have to "fix it later" either.

Relieving nasal congestion in an infant can be so difficult. If you go to the pediatrician, you will likely end up with a prescription for antibiotics. You might choose an over the counter remedy, chest rub or vaporizer. Water based vaporizers can be unsanitary, loud and trap bacteria. This vaporizer doesn't take water, but uses pre moistened pads infused with natural, aromatic oils. Each pad provides up to 10 hours of relief from cold like symptoms. The best feature might just be that it operates silently. Finally, your baby can get some rest and you can too.
