baby

I've read in other places that if you create a baby registry through Amazon(.com) you will get some kind of bonus gift from Amazon - but I think this only works in the US and not for Amazon.ca? Are there other places (Babies'R Us, BBB, etc?) that would be "beneficial" to create baby registry by gett...

I have bought a Maxi Cosi Max 30 carseat for my newborn baby and now is looking to buy a stroller(big mistake I made is that I bought the car seat first,so the choice of stroller is very limited now).

Hey all, my lovely wife and I are expecting our first new born next year. We have a 10 yr old dog (30 lbs) that we've spoiled to the end of the earth and I mean spoiled. We've let her jump on couches; she sleeps with us; the full 9. With your first born, did you fellow animal lovers have to do anyth...

toddler

Hi, Someone had offered to buy our baby a gift, which is quite popular in Korea. It's a basically a necklace with the kid's name and parents' contact info engraved on it. I've never seen such things here, so I suspect people won't even look for it. I also question its safety since it's worn around t...

newborn

Hi guys, just wondering which brand and type of diaper you used for newborn infant baby? too many to choose :(

what

I've read many good reviews on the dwinguler play mats, but I'm really hesitating on the price. My baby is currently 8 months old and started crawling recently. Is there still a point to buying a play mat at this stage? (Will he just crawl off of it whenever he has the chance?). Leading up to now, w...

Almost 2 year old likes to go on ninja scouting adventures in the middle of the night. Sometimes to our bedroom or bathroom and sometimes downstairs looking for whatever. I'm a little worried he's going to get outside at 3am. He knows how to pull a chair to the door and unlock the deadbolt to get ou...

Long story short. I am the biological father of my son. My ex partner has always had the same bf since prior to my sons birth. I paid support for the first 3 years at an astronomical rate (was a business owner and she was forcing me to pay what the business grossed). After that time I told her we we...
