Perfume-free: You can wash your infant's clothes along with yours as long as your baby doesn't have eczema or sensitive skin. You should use a dye-free, perfume-free detergent. If your baby has a reaction to the detergent, you may have to switch to baby detergent and wash separately.

Extra Rinse: You can wash your baby's clothes along with yours, although if your baby seems to have sensitive skin, you may want to do an extra rinse and avoid fragranced softeners. In most cases, it is not really necessary to buy special "baby" detergents!

Pool Stairs Caustics: Gates along the bottom of stairs that are sturdy are a must. Toilet covers, door locks, and locks to drawers need to be in place. Remember the garage! everything out there is toxic! gas cans, pesticides, bug sprays, and windshield wiper fluid are all deadly to a toddler. In the home be sure and put cleaners in a high locked cabinet. I recommend removing drano from the home entirely!

Breastfeeding: I will not wean the baby before the age of age. The american academy of pediatrics recommends to continue breastfeeding till the first birthday and possible after the first birthday if the child and the mother desire.

Gates are easy: Putting up a gate at the top and the bottom of the stairs will prevent your baby from either falling down or climbing up (and then falling down!).

Which is the best baby carrier?

We really...: We really should not endorse one brand over another. "hard" carriers are better than slings, of course, and for the bigger, heavier babies, many parents prefer belle baby which puts the weight of the baby on the parent's hips, not on back.
