Nothing teaches your child to bond better than a cup of coffee and gossiping about your girlfriends at the dinner table. Why should your kid be left out on all the gossip. Your husband doesn't want to hear it!
I don't know why people spend so much money on elaborate cribs when a dresser drawer will work just fine! ... and it's a lot cheaper. They will usually fit in the drawer until they are at least a couple years old.
Now this is where I advise caution. You don't want any babysitter watching your baby. If you hire some college aged hussy you never know where she could run off with your child to. You hire a homeless man he won't run far and he has no where to take them. Right!! exactly!
Always use caution when buckling up your child in an automobile. With all these child seat recalls you are safest by putting bicycle helmet on your kid and strapping him in with the seatbelt itself. I prefer duct tape in the back seat because it has a far superior hold to a seatbelt.
What baby can't get out of a crib eventually. By the time they are 8 there will be no keeping them in it.
I recommend getting a nice ventilated kennel with plenty of food and water. They can survive in there for a couple years as long as you check their food and water.
drying a baby can be so time consuming. I recommend throwing em in the dryer. All you have to do is toss a bottle of baby powder in there with them and they come out all fluff dried and smelling great!
How is patting your child down with a wash cloth ever going to sterilize anything? Take them out to the front lawn and hose em off. For that added shine you can use a little upholstery cleaner and wet black to get them sparkly clean!
