Today I read this article https://gizmodo.com/companies-halt-youtube-ads-following-reports-of-comment-1XXX-XXXX83 I immediately felt SO ANGRY that this was happening to children on YouTube. I know lots of parents who let their child surf youtube because of all the awesome videos on it. I just wanted to get your opinions on how you feel about this. Will it change what you let your children do o... More

This is all about my own MOM. Yes, of all people that could get into my nerve about oversharing on social media, it’s my own mother. She’s a 1st time grandmom who loves facebook! I’ve talked to her on so many occasions about this topic but I’m getting to a point now that I feel like I don’t want to send her his own grandson’s pictures or limit it or maybe snail mail her printed pictures because...

I’m looking to purchase padding for our fireplace hearth. There is a company out in Oregon that makes foam that covers entire hearth, but it’s pretty pricey. https://babysafetyfoam.com/fireplace-hearth-guard/?gclid=Cj0KCQiAzKnjBRDPARIsAKxfTRD83LPa932m1vNDq48U5yzz3oVKE3HDDQzC-aEtfvBHIf55TdOheFkaAj0AEALw_wcB Does anyone know of a similar company?
My 11 year old daughter is the only kid she knows that doesn’t have a phone. She constantly comes back from sleepovers saying how everyone was on their phones for an hour and she had to sit there. I want to get her a phone, but we’ve had some trust issues with her previous tablet. She has an Ipad, but I can tell she wants a phone instead. The problem is that she will want Instagram and Snapchat... More
I recently purchased a lovely antique wool blanket, but even after washing it with special wool-friendly soap, I cannot seem to rid it of a very strong perfume-y smell. I would normally hang it outside for a few days but we are buried under snow and ice here, so that’s not really an option at the moment. What are your tips and tricks for getting rid of stubborn smells trapped in fabrics? ... More
My daughter is about to be 14 months and seems very interested in all kinds of nuts n bolts. She’s touching chairs, door hinges etc. so my question is any one ever used any tool box with their young kiddo that is not a choking hazard?
My 5 month old has been rolling in her summer sleep Merlin’s Magic Sleep Suit, so we have still put her in the heavier, bigger winter one. She has started trying really hard to roll in that one as well, so I called the company and they recommended I transition her out of that one too. They suggested keeping the room really cool and putting her in 2 cotton sleepers and a sleep sack to give it we... More
Has anyone considered getting the WayB car seat? https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/meet-pico-the-travel-car-seat-for-kids-2-5-years Or know of something comparable? It looks great for ease of travel but is expensive so I'm wondering if there is a good alternative that is as small/light. Thank you!
Hey everyone So my 16 month old Son doesn't like shoes 😀. He just kicks them out as I put it on his feet. I have the velcro shoes. Looking for ideas that I can use so he is not able to kick it out? May be some different kind or type? What do you all do? Thanks in advance...

So my husbands family likes to posts pictures of our daughter on social media, which I actually have a huge problem with (that’s 700+ strangers per family member) but I let it go. But they constantly post pictures portraying our daughter as my husbands sisters child, caption and all, implying she belongs to my sister-in-law, and they DO NOT correct people when they comment. They actively crop m... More
I used my boppy primarily as a lounger, when she was younger, I draped a blanket over the Boppy and she laid there. I guess it’s the same as boppy newborn where basically the center is sewn shut? We also use it as a pillow on the couch, for adults. Any other uses beyond breastfeeding?? Also, I found out the Boppy goes around my thighs perfectly. 🤪 I’ve just never used it for nursing!
