Hi-tech Teddy monitors baby

We all grew up with stuffed animals — but ours weren’t stuffed with sensors. This new Tedi keeps an eye on your child for you, and sends alerts and updates to your phone.

Baby’s First photo album

You don’t want your child chewing on a photo print — but one secured in a plastic toy-like frame will be safe.

Middle names for the twins

Dear Jennifer,

After a long and painful decision-making process, I think we’ve settled on Lydia and Quentin for our g/b twins.  Since the kids will get my husband’s last name, I’d like to honor my family in middle names.  My maiden name won’t work, and my parents don’t like their own first names.   Read More

Leo for a girl?

Hi Jennifer! We have 3 boys and just found out we are having a baby girl.  We had picked Leo as a boy’s name and fell in love with it.  My grandmother’s middle name was Leona, so Leo was a throwback to her; however, we do not like the name Leona.  Read More
