Wearable tech isn’t for every parent as some find it as just being too paranoid, but one can’t deny that it definitely helps to ease one’s worries about your little one’s safety and well-being. So whether it’s for you, or otherwise, it’s always good to be knowledgeable of your options.
One of the most exciting firsts that parents will experience with their baby is the introduction of solid foods. The transition from breast milk or formula to solids involves making every new food an adventure as well as a tremendous opportunity to get to know your little one. While you’re getting acquainted with your baby’s preferences, you’ll also want to give attention to nutrition, convenience, and price (of course). To help you out, we’ve prepared a quick list of what we think are the best first foods for your baby.
This list is a mixture of different solid foods belonging to different food groups. If you’re unsure about whether or not your baby is physically ready for a certain solid, you can check out our baby feeding guide.
Without a doubt, you’ve heard about pregnancy cravings: that desire for pregnant women to indulge in a very specific taste, food group, or combination of specific foods during pregnancy. But what causes that urge?
Of course, the hormonal spikes experienced during pregnancy are seen as the root cause for many of the strange occurrences, feelings and emotions during pregnancy. However, experts are now starting to explore the possibility that food cravings stem for a different cause entirely.
Often times, what expectant parents are most excited about is feeding their little ones. It’s such an iconic thing: soothing your baby in your arms with a bottle and a gentle rocking motion.

There has been a general idea of what your baby can eat, when he/she can eat it, and how much of it should be consumed. However, this is a very flexible “schedule” since we all know that babies develop at different rates. But there are a few well-established guidelines that run along with basic skills development, as well as the baby’s development to adapt to different kinds of food. For your benefit, we have prepared a rundown of the developmental milestones, timeframes, and the general signs that determine when your baby is ready for something new.
Kids are curious, adventurous, and let’s face it, a little hard-headed. While children are true joys in life, having them in the house can cause a lot of stress and anxiety, especially to first-time parent. As your child grows, his/her needs start changing from comfort, nourishment, and proper development to learning and discovery. But of course, we can’t forget the development of strength and mobility. It’s at this stage where something very crucial comes in: baby-proofing
Baby-proofing a house is probably going to be one of dad’s favorite things to do because it does require a certain amount of planning, building, and assembly. What dad might not know is how much actually has to get done around the house so as to guarantee his baby’s safety, especially when the little one starts walking (or stumbling) around. Well, not to worry. We’ve prepared a short descriptive list of the top priorities.
