I'd say no, still, despite the OP's own answer. I don't agree that the ability to pan-and-zoom is necessary for a baby monitor, especially considering baby monitors used to only carry audio, not video. These days, all you need to make a cheap baby monitor is an old smartphone you're not using anymore, but is still functional, and a second smartphone. They ...

Your Baby will tell you when he/she is ready to stop swaddling. They will start to roll or kick and squirm out of the swaddle. The real question is are they ready let go of the need for swaddle even though they can escape the swaddle? You will know this as well as they will not sleep as well or as long. Sometimes the moro reflex will continue to wake ...

We didn't have any trouble with crawling on a hardwood floor, but we did provide a small rug (an Ikea-type children's playmat) for the winter months when the floor was colder. Carpet has its own downsides - it's slower, for one, which while for you might be nice, for the kid will be irritating. Hardwood has an additional advantage: it's noisy, so you know ...

We have a laminated wood floor (rather slippery for floor-to-cloth contact), but we had some clothes with non-slip rubbery patches on knees that were helpful. Similarly, for starting to walk, some baby tights/socks have those rubbery "dots" on their soles which prevent that slipping.

Carpet is good for crawling. If you don't want to lay a full carpet you could get a rug. We found a rug better than a blanket as the blanket can bunch up under the baby as she moves. A rug should be big enough for the learning stage. Once the baby gets more confident, she will be able to crawl anywhere, including the wooden floor. I wouldn't encourage her to ...

Regardless of the surface, there will be falls and bumps as she learns to crawl (and, later, walk). Keeping her at floor level is a good plan, though. There are two things I'd suggest looking for: reasonable traction and moderate padding. The traction is more important for learning how crawling works than for potential slips causing injuries. If her legs ...

My son went through a "must have electrical cords" phase that coincided with his longer "everything must go in my mouth" phase. So, I've had this issue. This is how we dealt with it: Hide the cords (often behind furniture, under rugs, etc). Be mindful of the child in areas with cords that aren't hidden, to quickly remove them. Unplug things that don't ...

May be your baby is gonna grow up into an electrician ( as she loves wires).. Lol joking :) Give her food items like noodles which thin and cylinderical like wires. Dont worry about the thickness or consistency. Hopefully your baby wont notice it. Also an advice, dont keep your baby anywhere near wires. If the child doesnt see it, then the temptation to ...

Have you considered co sleeping? This way you dont have to worry about A hurting your younger baby B. Once your younger kid attains 3 years of age, you can shift him.in the same bedroom of A. So this way, they will have a playroom and a bedroom.

I agree with taking children outside, they learn so much by exploring nature and the surrounding environment. As a parent of teenagers, we did so many early activities related to reading - one thing I wished I'd done more is playing games to develop early MATH skills. Here are some ideas: One type of toy that seems really simple but are important ...

My suggestion for 1 year old play is to take them outside. Bring them to a park or outside environment every day, in all weather. Let them get dirty, hot and cold, muddy and dusty. This will stimulate their entire body which will stimulate their mind. Outside play also stimulates their immune system letting them encounter bacteria that are abundant and ...

I've decided to share a few things we do right now which seem to be interesting and fun and (I think) help her develop (or at least don't slow her development:). Just an explaination: I write her all the time because I have a daughter. At this age it doesn't change much for boys I guess. Indoors Activities with children's books There are many books for ...

If the space behind the back allows the baby to slouch (curved posture?) then the short strap between the legs is most likely not in the correct position. Adjust the strap according to the manual and if you cannot remedy the problem then the safest thing for the baby is to purchase a new seat that fits more snugly. Fitting Checklist
