Science Says: Make Time for Play

According to researchers, a child’s earliest learning is rooted not in formalized education, but in play.

Potty Train Like a Pro

Being a parent comes with a few guarantees: There will be joy, there will be sadness and there will be times of transition. One of the biggest transitions for parents of small children is potty training.

Choosing Your Child’s Car Seat

Parenting is hard. Parents have so much to think about, and recommendations and guidelines change all the time. Trying to figure out which car seat your child might need seems is one of those topics.

Boosting Your Baby’s Brain Power!

Did you also know that babies are born with about 100 billion neurons (twice as many as a full-grown adult), and their brains develop most between birth and the age of 3?

Seven Common Feelings of NICU Parents

Toddlers: Learning through Play

I am three toddlers into this motherhood journey and can attest that children come into this world needing to learn pretty much everything.

Playing is the natural way in which young ones learn and, as Albert Einstein said, “Play is the highest form of research.”

Life after the NICU

You’d think that once a family got home with their neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) baby, they would be home free, right? After all, their baby isn’t hooked up to multiple monitors, doesn’t have IVs sticking out of every part of his body, and the parents don’t have to travel to and from the hospital every day anymore.

What’s Up, Doc?

Babies are confounding little creatures when they’re perfectly healthy, so the arrival of an illness can send a parent’s worry-machine into overdrive. Is that fever too high? Could it just be gas? Is that color of vomit normal? Should the baby be taken to the doctor? Fear not, parents. We’re here to break down how to handle the yuckies like a pro—and give you some peace of mind.
