Seeking Advice for Toys

Hi, my son will be one next month and just trying to decide what kind of toys to give him. Just was curious as to what toys went over the best with other kids or what toys didn't rank so high with other one year olds.

Would You Pay for This?

This is in NO way an advertisement or promotion of any kind. Just a curiosity question. I've been thinking about starting a business for designing and painting kids and baby rooms. I've been putting together a "portfolio" of sorts filled with all kinds of custom critters and designs. I did it before for friends of mine.

Looking for a Better Bath Tub

My son Jack is 5 weeks old and absolutely hates his bath. He screams the whole time no matter how gentle and soothing I try to be. His Primo Eurobath (which was recommeded by "Baby Bargains")is so slippery and, in reality, offers no support for a newborn. I can barely hold on to him and quickly wash him at the same time. Is there a better bath product for newborns that can make bath time a more pleasant experience for both of us?

I am a mother of 2 daughters and am contemplating adding a third and final child to our family. We would be extremely happy to welcome another child into our life. I know how busy and expensive life is with 2 children and I wanted to find out how you made your decision to have another child and how you managed to "keep your head above water" having a newborn and 2 older children. Is having 3 children overwhelming?

10 Month Old Crying in Car

My 10 month old used to be a good traveler in the car. For the past month (every since he has become mobile) he does not like to be in his carseat, stroller, wagon, etc. We think it's anything that he feels 'confined' in. He will cry the entire time we're in the car and it just makes any little trip, errand, etc difficult and stressful. Any tips or suggestions?
