Re: Randoms - Week of March 13

  • If anyone has had trouble drinking enough water, I recommend one of these bad boys! Double insulated so no condensation, and it has a lid, which is helpful if you have cats that like to drink the fresh human water  :D it just feels easier to keep track of when it's in a mug like this.

  • @ChocolateIsLife Good to know I'm not the only one with cats that want to drink out of human water glasses! And they stick their paws in it and try to knock them over. I've been a tervis tumbler user for years because of this.

  • I just want to say to everyone: make sure you do your research about safety measures for your LO. There can be a lot of outdated info on some of the helpful apps out there, and you don't want to take things at face value. Don't always trust Dr. Google either. One of the articles on Glow today was about bassinet sleeping. It said that babies should be out of their bassinet by 3 or 4 months, but failed to mention the AAP guidelines for room sharing. And another article was about drinking and nursing: a touchy subject with lots of potential for bad info. Do your research and make sure it's up to date. And let's be honest: most of parenting is doing what's right for you and your LO, and hang what some Ivory Tower researcher says.
