I LOVE Dwell Baby nursery stuff. I couldn’t afford Dwell items when Ace was born, so we came up with our own Ikea version. I am super excited that DwellStudio is coming to Target. Where was this nine months ago?

I read this article in my Newsweek last week. The article is review of the controversial documentary,”The Business of Being Born.”

Earlier this week we had a discussion on preschools. Here is an article to give you more tools in your Mom Toolbelt to help you parent your independent Preschooler.

The article states that the majority of the cases is from children taking the medicine unsupervised. Be sure to keep your medicines out of reach!

What do you do when you don’t agree with your friends’ kid’s behavior? The article explores how different parents responses. Interesting thought. Luckily I don’t think any my friends’ kids are monsters!

Laura Bennett is a mother of six, an architect and a fashion designer in the Big Apple. Yes, this article is a little dated! There was not a new episode of Project Runway tonight. I need my fix!

There are new reports stating that women between the ages of 18 to 24 are not taking enough folic acid supplements. Last week was Folic Acid Awareness week with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. I think I had enough folic acid in my prenatal vitamin and I tried to eat veggies rich in folic acid. I remember my dentist telling me to take supplements, because it saved the lives of his twin girls.

There is interesting discussion going on over at Parenthacks about the safety of allowing your newborn sleep in their car seat. I know many moms (including myself) who have let their newborn snooze away in their car seat.

Our friend Dawn wrote a review about one of her new favorite toys the Fisher Price Stack & Roll Balls on her blog ‘Against the Window Pane*’.

One of my favorite bloggers, Miss Zoot, started her own parenting blog titled ‘Pregnant and Unemployed.’ I love her honesty about parenting.

AWildRide.net is celebrating its first year anniversary with a writing contest. The theme is “What to Expect When Parenting isn’t What You Expected.” There are many prizes to win. The deadline for entries is Jan.15th. I am still working on my entry!

CNN has an interesting article on what happens when you regret your child’s name.

Our kids may be asking to be part of virtual worlds like Webkindz and “Pixie Hollow” soon. A quote from the article ” ‘Get ready for total inundation,’ said Debra Aho Williamson, an analyst at the research firm eMarketer, who estimates that 20 million children will be members of a virtual world by 2011, up from 8.2 million today.” Here is another quote from the article discussing Neopets, “ ‘Parents know they can trust our brand to protect kids,’ said Steve Youngwood, executive vice president for digital media at Nickelodeon.” I am a huge fan of the web and technology, but I would never rely on a website to protect my child. That is my job.

I read through all four tutorials and found them really helpful. It actually made cloth diapering less scary. She actually throws all the poop in the washer with the diapers. I wonder if anyone else does that.
