Nosefrida The Snotsucker Nasal Aspirator


As we approach allergy season in many parts of the country, I thought it might be helpful to revisit a useful, but gross way to help clear your baby's nasal passages. Parents insert the The Snotsucker Nasal Aspirator against the nostril, not inside, and use their own suction to remove the mucus. It may seem a little strange at first, but this is a safer and more sanitary method than traditional aspirator bulbs. Disposable filters are more hygienic and the entire aspirator is dish washer safe.

Room Darkening Blackout Drapery Liner 2 Pack


Babies are so cute and cuddly. They can bring so much happiness into our lives. If they could just learn the value of sleeping in on a Saturday, life would be perfect. If your sweet angel is up at the first light of dawn, but you could use a few more Zzzzs, it might be time to try room darkening drapes. These vinyl drapes work with all drape types and even muffle outside noises and provide energy-efficient insulation. These drapes might help you get some extra sleep in the morning, too bad they don't work in the middle of the night during the teething months.

Sony Baby Call Nursery Monitor


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.

Stork Craft Deluxe Glider/Recliner


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.

Triple Paste Medicated Ointment for Diaper Rash


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.

Vapor-Eze Waterless Vaporizer with Aromatherapy


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.

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. This monitor utilizes a patented motion detector technology that is incorporated into 2 sensor pads which are placed under the baby's mattress. If movement stops for 20 seconds or if the monitor detects less than 10 micro-movements per minute, an alarm sounds and red light flashes from the monitor alerting parents to take action. The monitor is battery powered and can be wiped clean with a dry cloth when needed.

Baby Must Haves???


I guess every parent has their own list of must have items. It probably changes with every child too. But for me when I think of must haves, a major bib collection is right at the top of the list. My first baby had such bad acid reflux, I still feel like I never had enough on hand. Waterproof bibs like these were great in later years, although clothes ones worked best during the really early months.


This time of year, in most parts of the country, blankets and lots of them, are needed to keep on the go babies toasty. A traditional blanket like one above, can be used in a stroller or while rocking on a chair.

For bedtime, most parents prefer a sleepsack like the one below for safety.


Speaking of safety, most parents of newborns will say a good baby monitor is essential. Video monitors have improved in quality over the years and have features like panning for when your little one ends up on the opposite side of the crib that you placed her. You can also zoom in if you want. That's a far cry from the static filled transmissions of years ago when you could also pick up your neighbors conversations if your monitor was on the wrong frequency.


Regardless of what your specific must have list contains, there will always be a few items that are essentials but special too. Items like favorite toys, old "blankies" and special keepsakes are also "must haves."
