Safe Sleep for Babies

How to create a safe sleep space for baby

Things have changed a lot since I was a kid. A friend showed me a photo from their childhood nursery. There were big, plush bumpers, blankets and stuffed animals all in the crib set up for a newborn. It was basically an advertisement parents would get today for what not to do. Now, there are tons of products on the market that prey on exhausted new parents who are desperate for their baby to sleep. Unfortunately, some of these products have risks associated with them; risks that most parents would not take if they were aware of them. The AAP has outlined

How to Get a Free Breast Pump from Insurance
October 12, 2018 8:00 am | by
Follow these steps to get your free breast pump that is covered by health insurance under the Affordable Care Act.

Under the Affordable Care Act, health insurance plans in the United States must provide breastfeeding support, counseling and equipment for the duration of breastfeeding. That means that insurance will cover the cost of a breast pump for new moms; either a new one to keep or a rental unit. This applies to all plans with the exception of grandfathered plans. So, how do you get your free breast pump? Call your insurance company. There should be a phone number on your insurance card. Give it a call and tell them you need to find out how to get your free breast pump.

 
Growing Kids, Car Seats, and Peer Pressure

A CPST explains why her growing kids remain in car seats. It's not just about age, it's about a child's size.

I have three growing girls and I am also a Child Passenger Safety Technician (CPST) so car seat safety is never far from my mind. My 10-year-old in a low back booster, my almost 7-year-old in a Nuna Rava car seat that is forward facing and my 3-year-old in the same seat, but rear facing. I often get asked if my kids mind their seating arrangements, especially my older two girls. From time to time they do ask when they can ditch their car seats. I usually approach these questions from a safety standpoint. We discuss that for Emmaline, my

Gift Tips for a 3-Year-Old Girl

Gift ideas for a 3-year-old girl

I strongly believe in the power of retail therapy. Shopping is my hobby, and I love sharing all my deals and finds with friends. Since having kids, I realized how little I actually knew about shopping for gifts for kids. Will they like it? Will they play with it? Will they wear it? Is it safe for their age? Are they too old for it? Will it drive me crazy? Will the pieces go back in the box? Where will it be kept? Does it have special care instructions? Is it going to stain or stick to everything in my
