baby proofing

Rolling. Scooting. Crawling. Pulling herself up to stand.

It’s exciting when your little one becomes more mobile. But that new range of motion makes it easier for her to touch or grab items she shouldn’t, from outlets to power cords.

Follow these tips to make your home a safe place for baby to explore.

A rash under your breasts can be itchy, uncomfortable and even painful.

The culprit is often intertrigo, a non-serious skin condition that can happen anywhere on the body that skin rubs against skin.

Choosing how to feed your baby depends on your little one’s needs, your preferences and your family situation.

As you’re exploring your options, keep in mind these factors and benefits of breastfeeding.

When Can You Travel with a New Baby?

It’s best to avoid traveling with an infant during the first few months of life unless it’s absolutely necessary, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP).

Traveling increases your baby’s exposure to infectious diseases, which can be dangerous to a little one who’s still developing her immune system.
