Hi! What is the most user-friendly universal baby registry tool? Have seen Babylist mentioned a lot, also the Bump, Amazon, and I found Zola easy to use for weddings so wondering if that might work too? Features I’d like: - Easy to see if an item has been purchased - ideally pass through shipping info if on another site - Ability to do group gifting (ie for a stroller) Curious what you guys u...

Hi everyone, I’m a first time parent and am expecting with my gf out first baby boy in April of 2019. I’m super juiced! I guess my question is if anyone can recommend any good baby clothes apps to shop? Or if there is any. I’d highly appreciate it! Thanks in advance!
I keep telling him that's not realistic but I don't want to crush his dreams. What should I do or say?
I am curious how much time you all allow your children to have screen time. I have a 21 month old little boy who was able to watch a bit too much TV (Mickey Mouse to be exact) for two weeks and now I’m trying to get back to limiting time, which makes him upset. I had a hysterectomy so I was limited on what all I could do to keep him busy and happy while I was recovering. I am being a stickler, ... More

I’m intimidated and amazed by parents that don’t allow their children any screen time in this day and age. My family lives thousands of miles away, and I videochat them daily. It helps us stay connected with them and eases the loneliness of being a SAHM in an unfamiliar place. Additionally, I didn’t graduate high school too long ago, and we used technology by way of laptops, projectors, smart... More
Anybody disagree with their partner/spouse about screen time usage with toddlers? What do you about it? My husband doesn’t care about the research out there about screen time being bad. He argues that is all around us and why fight it. While I agree that there’s no use in fighting it when we are out and about, I still believe that we can control how much our toddler is exposed to it in our hom... More
My baby is 26 months old. He is always wanting to play apps on my phone or watch his favorite shows on the laptop or TV. I was wondering how much time other moms and dads allow their babies on iPads or tablets or just anything? How much is too much? I have some (stahm) friends who have the tv on all day long and sometimes it’s just background noise or the baby is watching they let the babies de... More
I'm a stay at home mom with a 5 month old. I have no car, and no friends in the area, and my husband works until 8 PM everyday... so my adult interaction is little and far between. I've found that this has caused me to rely on my phone for some company and now it's hard for me to go long without it during the day at all. Any other parents experience this, or have ideas to kind of li... More
Is there a tablet for kids where you can turn on a show or movie and lock the controls so they can’t get out of it? I’m traveling for four hours with my daughter in a couple weeks and it’ll just be us. So I wanted to have a backup plan just in case the toys and books don’t work. She’s only interested in one show (word party) but whenever she gets an electronic in her hands she loves to push the... More
