We are having a non-religious, self-created naming ceremony for our new daughter on Saturday. Can you help with ideas on what, actually, to do to make this a "ceremony" and not just a bunch of people standing around looking at the baby?? [more inside]

BabyFilter: is there any medical evidence that it's bad for babies to sit or stand before they can get into those positions on their own? [more inside]

Book-filter: My husband and I are expecting our first child in early May. He would like a book on parenting, especially along the everything-you-need-to-know-about-infants perspective, as he has never really been exposed to babies. [more inside]

What is an infant feeder? My wife's former boss (mid 60's I guess) said that when she had her kid she didn't wake up in the night to feed him, she just hooked an infant feeder up to his crib and put some formula and rice cereal in it and the baby would feed himself. It sounds like something a hamster drinks out of, but for babies. I have googled and not been able to find anything but this picture
that I am not sure is what this lady was talking about. Do you know what this thing is and can you tell me about it?

Pat-a-cake; The Itsy Bitsy Spider ... and ....?
Can you suggest some traditional rhymes/games with motions
like the two above that I can play with my 16 month old son. Preferably things that can be done lying down (so Head Shoulder Knees and Toes won't work well).

Is it possible to over-breastfeed a baby? She's 6 weeks old and nurses, oh, like 10-12 hours a day at least. I think she's at the breast more than she's asleep. [more inside]

Gift Ideas for New Niece?
I've got a new addition to the family that I'd like to get something cool and special for but am unsatisfied with the offerings of places like RedEnvelop.com. Does anyone have any neat sites for unique and practical baby gifts?

This summer I'll be traveling with an infant from New Jersey to Florida (Tampa Bay area/Tarpin Springs). I've gone to a few sites and picked up a book, but I was hoping for some personal tips/stories from parents that might not have been gone over before. Also, which would be better, traveling by car train or plane? Thanks!
