Some babies get their first tooth as early as three months, yet some others won’t get theirs until closer to one year. Most of us understand the importance of dental care, but did you know that you can begin caring for baby’s oral hygiene even before the first tooth arrives?

Surviving Toddlers When Your Baby Doesn’t Sleep

I feel like this blog is my life right now. I currently have a 14-month-old little girl who doesn’t sleep at night. She has never slept well, and the past month has been the worst.

What is a Baby Box?

Some say that Finland’s low infant-mortality rate can be attributed to the baby box. The baby box is simply a cardboard box that includes a basic foam mattress that can serve as a safe place for an infant to sleep. The box may also be filled with several baby essentials such as clothing, diapers, and more. The practice of giving these boxes to new mothers in Finland started in the 1930s to give all babies an equal start to life, no matter what their background is. Now, some American cities and states will be providing them to mothers as an...
