What is the safest way to get rid of the fleas on the furniture and carpeting without endangering a baby who crawls?

Treat source: Anything you use no matter how "green" poses a risk to crawling kids. Fleas are attracted to white color for some reason. You can sprinkle salt on carpets and furniture. You can further "powder" the salt in the blender. Leave it on the baseboards as well an leave for 3 days. Do not let the kids play in areas you treat with anything. Run the vacuum cleaner and see if you need to repeat. ...Read more

How will I know if my baby is ok after rolling off the changing table?

How will I know if my baby is ok after rolling off the changing table?

See the doctor: Once babies learn to roll, they can never be left unattended if there is a chance they may fall. Many babies may be fine after a fall, but injuries may not be apparent. Due to the concern of a significant injury, such as the head, it is important that your baby be checked out as soon as possible following a fall. ...Read more

Should I put bubble wrap on the floor around the changing table in case I drop my baby?

Should I put bubble wrap on the floor around the changing table in case I drop my baby?

Not practical: This material would be unreliable and difficult to work with. If you must, invest in one of those spongy mats they offer for standing fatigue (kitchen) or a yoga mat. Much easier would be to keep everything you use for changing baby within reach and keep one hand on baby while you grab it. ...Read more

When is it too late during the day to feed solids/table foods for a baby? With changing work schedule sometimes we manage at 8:30 p.m.

When is it too late during the day to feed solids/table foods for a baby? With changing work schedule sometimes we manage at 8:30 p.m.

That sounds fine: Normal healthy babies 6 months or older can eat baby food at any time of day. During the first 2-3 months of starting solid foods, consider the baby food "just for fun", meaning it is ok if a baby wants it one day and doesn't want it the next day. Soon, a baby will settle into a schedule, such breakfast - lunch - afternoon snack - dinner - evening snack (no need for middle-of-the-night eating). ...Read more

Can my baby get a rash on his back from public baby-changing tables?

No: It is very unlikely for an older infant to get a rash from any kind of changing table. If desired, a parent can wipe down a changing table with some diaper wipes, then dry it with some paper towels, before putting the baby on it. ...Read more

Probably no problem: From what you tell me it does not appear that the baby sustained a concussion. Just keep a sharp eye on the baby for something that seems different from the way he/she acted before. Always, if in doubt have the baby examined by the pediatrician. ...Read more

How soon can my baby start eating food from the table?

How soon can my baby start eating food from the table?

8-12 mos of age: If your baby has already tried a variety of single item pureed foods you can try some table foods between 8-12 months of age. Make sure they are well mashed. Still avoid honey until a year due to risk of botulism. Also items cut in circles such as franks and carrots are choking hazards. Stick to finger foods that melt such as cereals or cut in lengths. ...Read more
