Toys for 12 Month Old

I have been asked to make a Christmas list for my daughter who by the time Christmas comes along will be 12 months. I am looking for ideas ... maybe your child had a toy they really enjoyed. She is trying to walk now and crawls all over the place. She really likes Dora but I like to try to also do some educational toys that she would also enjoy.

Safe Arts & Crafts for Babies

Looking for fun, safe arts & crafts ideas for our 8 month old. Just a little something to start tapping into her artistic side. Everything she plays with goes in her mouth. I've seen non toxic finger paints in stores but of course they're not going to say it's edible. Any creative ideas? One friend suggested crayons as the least harmful? Pudding? Or just good old finger paints under close supervision? Thanks!

Front-facing Car Seat That Is FAA Approved for Planes

hi Moms, In her first year my daughter has already ridden on several plane trips, but never in her own seat. she has just been in my lap each time. She's getting bigger and more squirmy now, and I think its time for her to have her own seat on the plane (for her safety as well as my sanity!). Its also time for her to switch from the rear-facing infant seat to a front-facing toddler one. So I am wondering, because this info seems surprisingly allusive on the web: does anyone know how i can find out which toddler car seats are...

How to Survive a 13 Hour Plane Trip with a 17 Month Old??

My husband and I are flying from West coast US to Australia next month with our 17 month old son. His favorite word is down and he is NOT a cuddler!!! I am starting to collect a few ideas on how to get through this flight (plus the 2 3-hour flights on either side of it). My pediatricians only advice was to not do it... this is not an option!!

Seeking Advice for Potty-trained 2.5 Yr Old at Naptime

I am seeking advice on how to curb my 2.5 yr old's idea of "funny" each Saturday at naptime. She throws out all her bedding and stuffed animals, then strips down (even her naptime diaper) and poos all over her sheets. She then triumphantly calls to me to see. I've tried to tell her this is yucky and germy - I've taken away TV and other tangible items, but she just doesn't get it. She is also not sleeping at all in the afternoon, but only on Saturdays and Sundays, when she is home. Help, please!
