    My aunt used to clean the house until her hands bled, every pregnancy. She was normally a very clean person, so I guess imminent babies just kicked things into high gear. I have never been pregnant,...

    One of my closest friends became a mom for the first time (through foster-adoption, but of a newborn) at age 51. It was a big surprise, but she is a wonderful mom. So you are not the oldest mom ever,...

    Well, Abigail is a Hebrew name, so I don't think it would be odd paired with an Arabic name at all. In fact, I would have to politely disagree with sugarplum fairy above, as I think that Abigail and...

    A lot of the neighborhood kids have them and seem to love them. My son is 2 1/2 and has tried out the neighbor girl's, but he prefers his tricycle for now. When he gets a little bigger, I would try...

    Our son never cared for the pacifier as a baby. We wanted him to take one, but he wasn't that interested once he figured out there was no milk in there. He never sucked his thumb, either, though he...

    I don't have a particular stroller recommendation. But here is what I figured out about finding one:

    Congratulations! My sister has a 14 year old and a 9 month old baby. I absolutely agree with your mom about this being a miracle and a second baby shower being appropriate.

    I know a little boy named Galen, around four years old. He pronounces it Gay-lin. Yes, I do think it is incredibly likely that someone will nickname him Gay in the future. Other little kids already...

    People just like the letter Y. I don't know. I remember learning back in early grade school that Y is sometimes a vowel, sometimes a consonant, but I don't remember learning that you could use it to...

    The reason that bumpers are considered a SIDS risk is not just bc of the suffocation risk. That is also a factor, but my understanding is that the main risk is that the bumpers impede air flow around...

    My brother was born in 1983. My dad is a huge computer nerd, so he had this "great" idea to randomly combine letters to come up with a baby name. My mom went into labor before he finished it, so they...

    Is the quality sufficient?

    My son was one of those babies who would cry everytime you set him down, so I wore him A LOT. I never liked the sling, it made my arm go numb. I don't know if I was just wearing it wrong, maybe so?
