The first "Bluetooth tracking sticker" that comes up on a Google search at this time is StickNFind. Pros: It's about the size of a watch battery (which is the kind of battery it uses). The ...

I think there are two aspects to your question which need to be considered: Carrying a baby in general (using any type of carrier) Your particular baby carrier Regarding point 1, carrying a baby using a baby carrier is thought to be good for the baby in many ways, especially for a newborn. It is especially popular in attachment parenting and often ...

I frequently front-carried my children (from newborn through toddlerhood) for hours at a time. However, we had a sling and so they were more curled up: no dangling legs until they were older (around the time they had neck control and wanted to be looking around all the time). I'm therefore making some guesses when I say it should be safe. I did read over ...

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 ...

My wife and I largely resisted any of the corner guard things. It was simply not possible to cover every possible edged surface and in the end we just ended up covering none of them. We're approaching age two and no brain trauma or major blood loss so it seems to have worked out okay. If you're really feeling like you need a cover for those things when ...

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
