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...

Halo Snuza--Alert System When Baby Stops Breathing

Has anyone used the Halo Snuza. I saw a report on the show The Doctors yesterday about how it saved a baby's life when the baby stopped breathing, it alerted the parents. Then last night on Law & Order: SVU, the baby died of SIDS. I guess with it fresh in my mind, I'm wondering if it's worth it. I think it's worth the $100 a piece (I would need 2), but they also make mats that go under the babies, but I don't know if they are as effective? I've read some online reviews, but only saw about 2 or 3 reviews, so I was hoping to get more. ...

Recommended Baby Items for 1St Time Momma

My husband and I are expecting our first child in July. This will be the first grandchild on both sides and his mom is dying to hit the store! She would like for us to register (which is fine) but we're not sure what to register for. Besides the obvious - crib, bedding, stroller, car seat - is there anything that you recommend? We'd like to make sure that we cover all the bases and with all the gear and gadgets out there, it can be a bit overwhelming. Thanks for your help!

Dad's Lack of Concern for SIDS

We have a beautiful baby boy, Ethan, that will be 2 months thus Saturday the 22nd. I have learned a lot about SIDS and the causes of it as well as chances of suffication. It seems as though my husbands concern for those things are not there at all. When I get up for work, we lay the baby down in bed so dad can feed him and they can fall asleep together. My husband seems to love to put the baby on tons of pillows and then put the comforter on him to "warm him". I also walked in to the living room one time to find both of them covered...

Does Halo Sleep Sack Work for a 11 Month Old Active Sleeper?

Now that is turning colder I needed to find something that will keep my ACTIVE 11 month old son warm at night. I have been layering his clothes but I don't think that is enough. So I went to Babies-r-us and bought the Halo Sleep Sack. He moves constantly in his sleep and when he wakes up he stands up and plays in his crib. The one I bought is totally enclosed at the bottom so his feet don't come out. My concern is that he will trip if he stands up or it will be annoying to wear for him. Is there any way for me to transition him into...

How to Stay Calm?

Both my kids (girl, 3yrs and boy, almost 5yrs) are very independent, strong willed and full of energy. I love that, but am also really challenged when it comes to dealing with their not-listening in various situations, not wanting to clean their rooms, etc., pretty much normal discipline issues. I've read a lot of books about parenting like love and logic, 1-2-3 magic and other books about positive discipline. I totally believe in a "CALM and FIRM" approach, not putting kids down, no spanking of course, positive reinforcement, you name it,...
