Help me help a frustrated 8-month old to communicate better. . .

Our daughter is eight-months old. She uses a blood-curdling scream whenever she is frustrated or wants something, which is usually her mom. The screams are so frequent--and so intense--that they have frayed the nerves of everyone else in the house. Any suggestions on how we might help her find a more effective way to express her frustration would be invaluable right now. [more inside]

Wanted: Care Guides for the Newly Human

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]

Udderly Ridiculous!

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]

SAHD Raising a Preemie

On September 30th, 2004, my son, Jonah David, entered this world 10 weeks ahead of schedule. Tomorrow he's finally coming home, after a very weird 40ish days of commuting between the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unity), home and work. On December 10 I'm joining the growing ranks of stay-at-home dads.

Any personal experiences, either of raising preemies or being an at-home dad? Good online resources, other than slowlane.com, which I've already found? And, old chestnut as this one may be, bright ideas about potential incomes to be earned from home would be appreciated... We're willing to accept the lifestyle change for the sake of having a full-time parent on the job, but any little bit will sure help.

How should I travel with an infant from New Jersey to Florida?

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!
