If you are looking for an easy baby shower gift to give to a mother-to-be, diaper cakes are always a popular option. A diaper cake is made by rolling up disposable diapers and putting them together in the shape of a “cake” to give to the new mom.Pin It

Comfort is a great way to help your infant make it through a cold. Babies like the feeling of knowing their parent is close to them at all times especially when sick. You might notice your infant expressing more attachment then usual for comfort when your little one is sick. So cuddle up!
Patting a baby on the back when they’re really congested seems to help loosen things up so baby can breath better. This combined with comfort before bedtime may relax your baby enough to help them fall asleep and breath easier.

Eczema is more common in babies with a family history of allergies or asthma. It begins as a bright red looking rash on the cheeks and then progresses to other areas of the body like behind the ears, and to the neck, arms and legs. After a baby turns six or eight months, the red, scaly rash can move into the diaper area too. Small pus filled bumps will fill up, ooze and then crust over. When baby scratches the itchy areas, the skin can become infected.

One of the most frequently asked questions I receive is “why should I teach my baby sign language when he/she is not deaf?”
Well that is a good question. Even if your child is not deaf, there is scientific research that has been done to show the benefits of sign language for hearing babies.
I am always looking for ways to save money on health care. As if health insurance premiums aren’t high enough, there are high deductibles that never seem to get met. My challenge this year is a $200 cap on preventive health care, and I have an infant who needs his immunizations. Every time I take him to the doctor, I receive a bill that is anywhere between $200 and $500. Unbelievable. It’s not so bad when your insurance pays for it, but when they don’t, what can you do?
