I read baby powder is very dangerous to your health, what do they recommend to use instead?
Our instructor at the childcare class said that baby powder can be dangerous, simply because it's small particles in the air, around someone whose lungs aren't fully developed yet. Baby powder isn't medically necessary; it's just a cosmetic that makes the baby smell better. Helpful, but not required. We got some baby powder in the baby shower, so we'll probably use it a little, but we won't go out and buy a new one once we're out.
(Several comments about sleeping with the baby. People confirmed that the general recommended practice is to have the baby close to your bed, but in its own separate bed.)
We haven't decided the sleeping system yet. Katie is thinking about moving the crib next to the couch-bed and sleeping there, but I think that's unfair to her. She says some couples do it, where the male is the one who has to get up and bring the baby to the mother for nighttime feedings, but that's unfair to the male.
My daughter just outgrew the car seat that goes with that system and now getting her in and out of the car is a struggle. Did you guys get a baby swing?
We were given three baby swings. I have no idea what to do with them.
