    I think its true though that we get so hung up on doing it right making sure baby has the best that we almost forget to go with it. The grow egg hs already been switched off - baby not even here yet but I was worryin. It's hot so my freind with 2yr old says so when ur hot at night or in the day what so you do. I said windows open fan on wear less just a sheet she said to me ok so if babys hot dress in less and open. Window just keep an eye on what's right for him/her don't fuss about exact room temp. She is so right. It's a learning curve and I hope I get it right but if I don't well il make the mistake and get it right next time. X

    "Men - please don't assume that because we have the baby that we know what to do. We are in the same boat as you, with the same information and screaming baby. Work together, don't accuse each other." Man should shoulder more responsibilities and support and care their wife all the way.
