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...

Should I Let My 10Yo Son Quit Tae Kwon Do?

My son is 10, nearly 11. He is very smart and funny and likes video games and playing on the computer. He is not very athletically inclined. I mean, not exceptionally fast or strong or talented at sports. He has been in flag football, tackle football, baseball and soccer, all of which he tried without putting forth much effort in practices or games. His soccer coach even told me after one practice that my son was the laziest one on the team. After each sports' season was over, my son decided not to do it again. He had been been...

Questions for African American or Interracial Moms

My daughter is interracial and I have no idea what products to put on her hair. Her hair is very tangly when I wash it . And after I wash and brush the tangles out I have no idea what to put on it.

Does the Halo Sleepsack Swaddle Blanket Work?

I have a 9 week old and I'm trying to find the best swaddling solution. We have gone back and forth swaddling her really tightly with a regular blanket (which she finds a way to get out of) and the Miracle Blanket. We've been using the Miracle blanket exclusively for the last week or so and it is working fine, but I'm interested to know if others have had success with the Halo Sleepsack swaddle blanket. It looks like it would be much easier to swaddle a little one in than the Miracle Blanket but I'm wondering if it really holds their...

When to Stop Swaddling Baby?

I'm wondering when to stop swaddling my baby? He is 8 weeks today. I have read in a couple books to stop swaddling when your baby gets active so it doesn't stunt their (leg) development. However, I have also read to stop swaddling at 4 months? He has been swaddled nightly in his crib since we brought him home from the hospital (wouldn't sleep in the bassinet), but within the last couple nights he as started to "break-out" of his swaddle and is now kicking all the time. I tried a Halo Sleep sack the other night and he slept pretty good,...
