Nothing compares to the joys of being a parent. Having a newborn in the family brings couples closer and makes the entire household more cheerful and interesting. But as we all know, being a parent is not just about spending time with your baby. More than anything else, it also requires exerting a lot of effort to make sure that your baby is always safe and free from potential hazards. To further help you in this endeavor, here are some useful tips for finding the safest gear for your baby as you go through various baby product guides:

Opt for a non-toxic gear.
The first thing you need to check is the composition of the safety gear. What is the material made from? Is it non-toxic? Be sure that it is because babies have a strong tendency to put everything they see or touch in their mouths. It goes without saying that a safety gear that is made from toxic materials could poison your baby, in the long run, so be very careful about the safety gears you purchase.

Make sure it is sturdy.
The next thing to tick off your list is the built of the safety gear. The questions you need to ask yourself are: is the safety gear sturdy enough? Will it be able to support the weight of my newborn? Do not take the risk if you are not sure. The safety of your baby should always be a top priority.



Choose the color.
Believe it or not, the color of the safety gear is also important. Imagine buying white safety gear that matches your white walls. Your newborn, while wearing the safety gear, may blend in with the walls. Or something to that effect. This is especially worrisome if your vision is not accurate.

Assess the size.
Of course, you should also be very mindful of the size of the safety gear. Ideally, it should be able to fit your baby well. Although there are belts to secure your newborn, placing him or her in a safety gear that is too large could still stir up some unwanted hazards. To be very certain, it is best to go for a gear that is closer to your baby’s size.

Inspect the design.
Finally, we move on to the design of the gear. Does it have multiple locks to secure your newborn? Does it have extra features that are useful in keeping your child away from potential hazards? These are just some of the questions you need to ask yourself before buying a safety gear for your baby.

We cannot stress how utterly important it is to keep your baby away from potential hazards, You can store accident-prone furniture and other objects, but what you should understand is that these hazards are everywhere. They could be within the confines of your own home, in your car, and even at the park or at the mall while you are strolling and having a good time. And the only defense you have against all of these is to be familiar with baby product guides and invest in a reliable safety gear.

Miss Poodle Perm, That's Me!

Jill of Scary Mommy is doing a linky post about school pictures. You know the ones, possibly you didn't smile a sweet smile, just the smirk of panic. Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!)

Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story:

I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair, my hair style was a nightmare.
My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogrammed, Al…

Taking Steps To Stay Away From Depression

Why do I read the news?   So depressing.  I'm at a place in my life where I need to focus on positive images, ideas and people whenever possible.  Why in the world do I click links that will only lead to negative, unhappy, heart-breaking information?  Ugh.  I don't understand myself.  If I'm going to avoid a depressive state of mind I need to stay far away from the negative.


Oh I need to read this everyday.  More than once a day.

There is good all around.  I'm going to keep looking for the positive, the humor, the kindness.   Do you have any suggestions on where I can find positive, funny, heart-encouraging news and images?  I would love to focus on what could go right in the world.  And... I would love to share more positive with anyone who will accept it.
