Is the rocker chairs of fisher price safe for the back of my newborn? She is 42 days old and they say on the rocking chair suitable for kids from day one, is that true?

Is the rocker chairs of fisher price safe for the back of my newborn? She is 42 days old and they say on the rocking chair suitable for kids from day one, is that true?

Should be fine: The fisher price rocker chair looks like it puts a baby in the same position as being in an infant car seat, which is fine. A brand new baby would slump over due to weak head control, but a 6wk old should be ok. The vibrations should be gentle and soothing. Parents should not leave a baby unattended in such a rocker chair, or other types of baby chairs. ...Read more

Is it safe to have my pet near my newborn?

Yes: Pets and kids usually get along well.

If there are going to be other kids at the family gathering then coughing and sniffles are likely going to be there too increasing the risk of your baby catching an infection. If you decide to go, carry hand sanitizer insist any body who want to hold the baby clean their hands. ...Read more
