Do you really need a crib mattress pad? The answer is completely up to you! But if you’re like most parents, there’s a pretty good chance that you put a lot of effort into preparing your little one’s nursery. And since babies and toddlers spend so much of their time sleeping, you most likely tried to equip their room with all the necessities in order to help them stay comfortable and safe while asleep. You’ve done a great job so far, and you probably thought you could check the nursery off your to-do list...until you heard about crib mattress pads....

Newborn Sleep Simplified

Mon, Mar 22, 2021

Your baby will learn a lot from you over the years. Perhaps the first and most important skill you’ll teach your baby is how to sleep. Fact is, sleep isn’t an innate skill—it must be learned. And while we don’t sleep train until 4 months from their estimated due date, those first few months are an opportunity to lay the foundation for healthy sleep habits. By doing so, you’ll help your baby take better, more consistent naps (you can shower! Drink hot coffee!) and sleep more soundly at night (yes, please!) You can start these tips into action right away...

Has your baby started acting like Houdini and playing tricks on you, like climbing out of their crib? If so, you’re in good company! If your baby climbed out of their crib but you’re not ready to transition them to a toddler bed just yet, we’re here for you.

We have a few tricks of our own to help you when your baby (or toddler!) starts climbing out of their crib.
You’ll always remember the moment your friend tells you that she’s expecting. Whether it’s her first pregnancy or she already has one or two kids in tow, she’s probably feeling a mixture of emotions—from excited to stressed.

Either way, as a good friend, you’ll want to show your support! Choosing the right gift off of her baby registry will show your friend how happy you are for her, as well as convey the fact that you’ll be there for her every step of the way.

If it’s her first baby, she may need help putting together her registry so it includes everything you actually need when bringing home a baby.

If you’re stumped for ideas to suggest, here is some advice on what your expecting friend will really want and need after having her baby.
