Most Useful New Infant Item You had...please share...especially Preemie Parents

So my SIL gave birth VERY early last 30.5 weeks gestation. My niece weighed in at 2 lbs, 1 oz. She has done vent the whole time, no emergencies and while she has not gained any weight yet, she is maintaining her birth weight at this point. She looks wonderful...even a full head of hair! I thought fat and hair grew last?? She is a tiny little spectacular miracle! She will be needing some selections of preemie clothes, and other such things. But I am wondering what were the most useful things you had for Preemies...

10.5 Month Still Waking and Need to Wean Paci and Bottle Soon,no? When and How?

Hello Mamas, My 10.5 month is not sleeping through the night. He has never been a good sleeper. He has slept through the night (meaning all night long) a few times, but he is very inconsistent...and it seems like for the last month, he has been waking 1-2 times at night...and sometimes getting him back to sleep has been difficult. It started with him teething and now he is just waking up for feedings and cuddling. So let me start by saying he only uses his pacifier at naptimes and at night, but I have noticied that he has grown more...

Exersaucer Vs. Jumperoo

Hi, my daughter is 4 months old and her doctor said she's ready for the exersaucer. The only problem is I am torn between the jumperoo and an exersaucer. My daughter seems to get bored easily and I'm afraid jumping won't be enough to entertain her. However,I love the idea of her getting some exercise. We could get both, but they take up so much floor space. Any recommendations? Thanks so much!

What Next After Exersaucer?

Our almost 9mos old son seems to be getting bored w/his exersaucer. He can't walk yet so we like using it because it keeps him upright for a while after eating (he's still a big spitter). But we've noticed that he's not as interested in the toys on it anymore. I know you can buy new ones which we could do. But I'm wondering if anyone can suggest another similar product for his age or the next "thing" for him. If you can recommend any new exersaucer toys that your child likes that we should purchase, I'd be interested in hearing about...

Risks of Standing Flatfooted in the Exersaucer

Does anyone know any risks that come from your child standing flat footed in an exersaucer. My son loves his, but seems to be outgrowing it. We have it on the highest setting but he is still standing flat footed. Has anyone heard of any problems that this may cause?

Help, Child Who Escapes!

I watch a little girl during the day who can now get out of the pack n play. I'm not sure what to do. Her Mom was thinking about buying one of those tent-like covers. She already had to buy one for her crib at home. I'm trying now to lay her down but she keeps kicking her leg over and then falling hard on her head. You would think she might get tired of doing this bc it would hurt but no...Help.

Help! 1 Year Old Has Decreased His Naps & I Can't Get Anything Done!

Hi. My 1 year old son has stopped taking long naps...he only sleeps about 30 min. (His doctor is not concerned about the short naps...he just doesn't need as much sleep). I used to get everything I needed to do (shower, laundry, dishes, pay bills, cooking etc) while he slept. Now that he doesn't sleep as much, I'm finding it very difficult to get anything done. Any advice? Thanks!

6 Month Old Milestones

My daughter will be 6 months old next week..She has only rolled over a few times in the past month and a half. She has rolled from back to belly and belly to back, but only a few times each. She also doesn't hold her head up very well. I sit her in her bebe pod (it's like a bumbo seat) to help her get better head control and she also sits in her exersaucer a lot, but with both of those things she still needs a lot of blankets around her. I know I shouldn't compare her to my older son, but I remember he was rolling both ways at 4 months and...
