Napping in crib

We hold our 4 month old in our arms for almost all her naps. Now we are trying to get her to take one nap in her crib and it hasn’t been going great! She cries a lot and takes her about an hour to fall asleep even though I know she’s tired. Any suggestions for making nap time go better?

Finding a nanny on care.com

Baby led weaning

What is it and why should we do it (or not!)?

Distracted breastfeeding

My three month old gets so distracted while I am feeding her. She looks around at everything!! I am worried if I feed her in an area with no possible distractions, she’ll never be able to eat with distractions. Any tips?

Late bedtime / wake up time

How long can you get away with a late bedtime (9 or 10 pm) and late wake up time (9 or 10 am) with a baby? That’s the schedule my 6 week old is currently on and she’s sleeping great (7 hours between feedings at night) but I know they say that 7 pm is a better bedtime when they are older.

Maternity Leave Mom Activities

I want to take a class for three hours a week during my maternity leave. The class will start two weeks after my due date, but is flexible where I could miss a few. I think it’d be nice to have a bit of “me time” scheduled each week, but I’m not sure if I’m over simplifying how hard it would be to get away and have my husband take care of the baby. Thoughts?

Freezer Meal Recipes

I'm due in June and want to prepare by making some freezer meals! Any great recipes that are favorites for this purpose?
