"Every child is different." And also, to use pillowcases as bassinet sheets- much cheaper... Please share any advice with me, I have a 7 month old son and am always interested in learning...

I always use hand me downs and I agree every child is different.

The discipline changes with the child, if a child gets used to a consequence, he won't be so upset about recieving it, I found with my son between the ages of 4 and 7, about every six weeks, he had new consequences for bad behavior. Also, never underestimate what your child knows about what's going on around him. They're so much smarter than anyone gives them credit for.

I like this one that my mother-in-law gave me, she said, "Enjoy every moment with her, she'll grow up fast. Take pictures and enjoy them."
