Question by Jessica D: How many diapers and what size should I buy for my baby on the way?
Im a new mother to be and was curious as to what size diapers I should have stocked up for my unborn baby and how many packs, right now I have 1 pack of newborn diapers and 3 packs of size 1 diapers (50 pack each).

Answer by LilySophia4/7/10
I had all newborn but ended up with a ten lbs baby, which newborns dont wok for. 8-14 lbs is size one.

Sophie’s proud mommy

I never bought the newborn size diapers and the hospital didn’t use them either on my baby. I went through 2 large boxes of Size 1 Huggies.

PhotobucketI love pampers

Pampers baby dry diapers are great; easy to re-strap if you don’t do it right the first time. The smell is pleasant, and the design cute sesame street characters. I recommmend, just make sure your baby is just barely out of size 1 to get this size 1-2!

PhotobucketLove Pampers Baby Dry Diapers

I tried the cruisers after always using pampers baby dry diapers on my son and they failed us several times. I went right back to baby dry and no more leaks. I have also tried other brands and I loved Huggies for my daughter but they don’t work for my son. Funny how each is different. I am a mother of 4 and Luvs worked for my other son. You just go with what works for your child. I also have noticed that they work differently for different ages as well. Good idea to try a few out before you buy the jumbo packs.


Photobucket Best diaper on the market for the past decade

I am a stay at home Mom with 4 children. I have been buying diapers for the past almost 11 years and Pampers Baby Dry diapers are hands down the best diaper on the market, and believe me I have tried them all!

1. They are thin, easy to pack 5 in a diaper bag.
2. Easy to unfold with one hand
3. Tabs are easily opened without extra unfolding and don’t rip off like several other brands.
4. Doesn’t leave residue on baby or smell like pee when really soaked.
5. Wider in the front to prevent baby from peeing out the side

One thing that may be helpful is to remember that Pampers Baby Dry diapers fit better on children that are long and skinny. If your baby is short and really chubby in the bottom, then Huggies will fit your baby better. This, I believe, explains the few complaints about Pampers not fitting or leaking.

Question by Jayden : which one is better for baby room: Humidifier or Air Cleaner?
I’m preparing for my baby room . Which one you guys think is better between humidifier and air cleaner.

Answer by cocobear41107
I have an air cleaner in my baby’s room and when you walk into the room you can tell that the air is much cleaner. But for the air cleaner to really work your suppose to keep the door closed. Target has nice air cleaners


they are both completely different types of machines…i would suggest you get a COOL mist humidifier to keep on hand for dry winter air or when baby is ill; the air cleaner is optional, but if you feel better having it for whatever reason, get one too; but they do not serve any of the same purposes, so i wouldn’t make it a choice between the two unless it is financial…in that case i would go for the humidifer….gl

Melrose Mommy

Both are good. Air cleaner is good for every day use to keep nice clean air in your baby’s lung. Humidifier is great for when the baby gets a cold. Only problem with humidifier is that is tends to make the room cold. We have a special heater in our baby’s room that is very safe (doesn’t blow heat, it oscillates it) and that helps keep the room between 68-72 degrees.

Kristin Pregnant with #4

Without a doubt a humidifier. Babies should have cool moist air.. those air purifies don’t really work that great anyways.

Photobucketquiet, efficient and cute!

This frog humidifier is wonderful. I’m so glad I finally decided to get one after reading reviews on it since last winter. Unlike this picture, the actual product is a true Granny Smith apple green, or some might call it lime green.
-no expensive filter required. (my Holmes humidifier requires a new $13 filter about every 6 weeks)
-shuts off automatically when it runs out of water
-easy to refil water
-simple and easy to use
-tiny green light is on when humidifier is in use and I persoanlly like a very dark bedroom at night. I just tape a dark piece of paper over it and problem solved. But it can also be a night light for a child’s room.
-must be on a nightstand or some sort of elevated surface. Some people might not have that room to spare.
-it may be TOO cute and irresitible for little ones to keep their hands off it at first. But the newness wears off.

PhotobucketQuiet, easy to use, and so gosh darn CUTE!

I got the penguin humidifier a week ago after researching multiple brands, some expensive ones, filter ones, big ones, warm ones, etc. And I read the reviews about it leaking or breaking on this one, and essentially there was some complaint on just about every brand out there–always a few problems. So for the $30 this one cost (and the fact that it is ridiculously adorable!) it seemed to cover what I needed: something that was not expensive, not too large and bulky, smaller reservoir so more fresh water going through it (and less water sitting around getting ookey) and would add humidity where ever it was.

It has been running almost non-stop for a week, minus filling times or when we were out, and has worked perfectly. The body reservoir, even when running on high, has lasted at least 16 hours. I haven’t had problems with white dust on everything like my old-fashioned gigantic noisy one (I use tap water), and it doesn’t spray water drops out with the mist either. It definitely made a difference running at night in the bedroom–no noses and throats feeling ‘dry as dust’ in the AM.

The penguin has a small footprint, about 9″ diameter and 12.75″ tall. It runs almost silently BUT it does make a trickling noise and actually sounds like our tabletop fountain. It’s a nice sound during the day but wore on me during the night; I wasn’t used the sound and I kept thinking it’s leaking when it wasn’t. So now I run it for a while before bed and I sleep much better all around.

Things to watch out for though… the reservoir opening where you fill it, there is a screw-on cap with a spring-valve (like what’s at the bottom of your coffee maker basket). There should be a silicone O-ring that fits in the top of the cap. Our O-ring was inside the opening, and since it was clear-ish could be easily missed. The O-ring could cause the cap to leak if not seated properly and the cap needs to be tightened snuggly.

When filled and righted (there’s even a little handle to carry it by) it should only drip slightly out of the spring-valve. Check that nothing is clogging the spring-valve by pressing it in (before filling) and that the flap is not folded. Only use COLD water in the reservoir, and if you boiled water WAIT for it to be room temp before using. Using hot water could definitely cause this plastic to crackle and crack. The body must sit squarely on the ‘butt’ or it can dribble over the side a tiny bit.

We have had absolutely no problems with this little cutie, and if I do I’ll update my posting. It has a nice rocker on-off switch on his ‘left butt cheek’. It has a dial on the front (I’ll call it his bellybutton) to adjust the amount of mist; even on high he doesn’t drip. The mist dial doesn’t seem to affect the fountain noise at all; i.e. the lesser misting does not lessen any gurgling it does. A great little design and it does the job!

PhotobucketBuy it, enjoy it…it works great plus is cute.

A great little humidifier. Well worth the money for its functionality…the cute appearance is a bonus. It is not loud at all and really cranks out serious humidity.

Cool Mist Humidifiers

Cool mist humidifiers are excellent for creating a year spherical cool and a comfy atmosphere each within and out of doors your home.

Totally different sorts of cool mist humidifiers are available that can be used for both personal and commercial purpose. This type of humidifier is ideal for regions where the climate is typically dry but warm.

In warmer climate this kind of humidifier is naturally a better option than alternative quite humidifiers. For one, the reason is obviously hotter climate and secondly this sort is much more safer as it doesn’t would like to boil water. An added advantage is the value effectiveness and considerable low energy consumption.

Ccool Mist Humidifiers

If you are scouting for that perfect cool mist humidifiers, you will come across three completely different sorts and before you decide which one to choose, it’s better to concentrate on how every one specifically operates:

Impeller humidifier – The pressure from a high speed rotating disk thrusts water into a diffuser, that then breaks the water into little droplets and releases it within the air as mist.

Offered as mostly tabletop units, these humidifiers not solely cools the area temperature but they’re also sometimes quite therefore you’ll be rest assured of not being distracted by any loud noises. Likewise in an impeller humidifier you do not need to change any filters.

Evaporative Humidifiers – Definitely quite widespread and the most commonly used, cool mist evaporative humidifiers works on the natural principal of evaporation. The humidifier contains a wick that absorbs water while a fan blows out the dry air through the wick filter.

This permits the water in the filter to evaporate into the room. The evaporative humidifier not only adds moisture to the air but it additionally filters any reasonably impurities or minerals. This is often the explanation why it’s advantageous to interchange most wick filters approximately every 2 months.

Ultrasonic Humidifiers – these humidifiers are known to be the quietest as they operate on high-frequency vibrations. The water within the humidifier turns into vapor mist through the ultrasonic frequency of the sound waves.

The vapor mist is then discharged into the air through a tiny fan. It’s advisable to use distilled water with ultrasonic mist humidifiers as not all the models trap the impurities and minerals.

Choosing the simplest humidifier

Now that you are alert to how each one works, it’s now time to come to a decision which whole you must zero in on. While choosing a complete, you would like to be clear of what features are you wanting for in an exceedingly humidifier.

Simple cleaning: There are quite some brands that make humidifiers, that doesn’t want their filters to be changed. Air O Swiss humidifier is one such option, as its filter desires cleaning once a season.

Checking for designed-in humidistat: This is often a great feature to own in your humidifier as it automatically keeps a check on the temperature and doesn’t let it over humidify and it saves water as well. Moist Air humidifiers return equipped with a digital humidistat for moisture control. Few of the Air-O-Swiss and Graco humidifier models also have this facility.

Keeping noise levels low: If you are particular of wanting a humidifier that is exceptionally quiet, then opt for Air-O-Swiss ultrasonic humidifiers. The opposite options are cool mist humidifiers from Germ Guardian Humidifiers and Graco Humidifiers.

Question by Jojo: does all baby car seats need a base to put in the car?
hi i’m gonna be a first time mum and was wondering if every baby’s car seat needs one of those bases you can get? Does it depend on what type of car seat im getting? Or is it there for extra safety? obviously i’ll get one if it means my baby will be more secure in a car crash. Hope you can help. Many thanks. just to clarify, do i need a baby’s car seat and a base??

Answer by Common Sense Is Dead
You cannot put just a carrier in the car, it has to have a base- thats what holds it in place during a crash.

I think back in the 90’s they had some that you could just strap in on their own- but it was a slightly different design, and still incredibly unsafe.

Customer Reviews

Photobucketgreat price, straps are a bit cumbersome
By C. Bauermeister
This has been a great car seat for our little girl & the price sure did help this out; however, the harness straps are a bit difficult to get tight enough on her body. I’m sure over time these will get less stiff & easier to tighten, but with a newborn a person wants to be extra gentle anyway.

PhotobucketGreat car seat for up to 22 lbs.
By Melissa Smith
This car seat is so cute and perfect for my first baby girl. The bases for this car seat are around $30, so I bought one for my husband and baby sitter. Also, I got another car seat just like this one at Wal-mart in a different color. All the car seats and bases are interchangeable.

The straps are very easy to adjust, and if you use the latch system, the car seat is easy to install. I just drove my car to the fire department and they installed it for free.

PhotobucketMore than just a car seat
By daniholt
Just bought this car seat a few weeks ago for our daughter who came home from the hospital almost a month after she was born due to a heart condition that required her to have open heart surgery at a week old. As far as car seats go, this one is amazing.

Not only is it adorable, durable and easy to hold, but it makes me feel so much better to have her in a car seat that doesn’t jostle her when we are walking or driving thanks to all the padding and sturdy design. For a delicate baby like ours, or any baby for that matter, this is perfect.


Congratulations by the way!
Car seats that use bases are usually ones that form part of a travel system. For example if you buy the Quinny Buzz pushchair, you can get the Quinny Dreami carrycot and the Max-Cosi car seat plus base.

It is worth remembering that you should keep baby in a rear facing car seat for as long as possible for their safety and not many (if any) seats that use bases are rear facing. If you want to see why I suggest you watch the video at the site below where you will find a lot of other useful info about car seats in general as well.

Other than that, ISOFIX car seats have been suggested to be the most safe as they eliminate the user incorrectly fitting the seat (one of the major causes of injury in a collision). The Britax Duo Plus is an award winning ISOFIX seat reviewed in the link below. Have also added a Quinny site that explains about the travel system if it’s of any use.
Good luck with the baby!


Infant car seats usually have a base to them. We got a travel system for our daughter and it had a base to it. The best car seat to get is the convertible ones. Because if you get the infant ones you are going to have to buy another car seat when they have reached 25 lbs or has out grown in height wise. A convertible car seat is usually good from birth to about 3 yrs I think. We went out and bought one for our daughter when she out grew her infant car seat and she loves it.

Its a graco durango car seat I believe. Now we are expecting twins and Im going to get both babies a convertible car seat. Unless we decide to buy one more travel system for like going to the store and stuff. That is about the only thing they are really good for. You dont have to worry about putting the baby in a dirty buggy.. Depends on how much you want to spend on car seats for the first couple years..

Bay Bomber **Carson’s Mumm

There are seats which you don’t have to attach to the base. It will say specifically in the instruction manual if that particular car seat is one of them, so you’ll have to read that over. There are, however, a lot of car seats produced now that do not allow for use without the base. I know mine does have the option, but I personally find it’s too much of a hassle to get the angle of the car seat right every time I want to take her out.

With my base, my car seat technician has already inspected it and made sure it was installed correctly, tightly enough, and at the correct angle. This of course isn’t an issue if you plan on leaving the seat in the car, but I find it’s soooo easy to just click the baby in the car seat into the base when you’re set to go.

If you do purchase an infant seat which doesn’t require a base, here’s a helpful video to watch on the installation. Of course, when you leave the hospital, the car seat tech should assist you in making sure it’s installed properly, but the video is helpful if you want to do it on your own down the road:


In the UK, no they don’t have to have a base to clip onto. (Not sure about US or other countries.) The bases are basically just a convenience item, because they remain fastened in the car all the time and the seat just clips onto and off from them.

There definitely isn’t a safety issue, other than possibly that you don’t have to break your fingers trying to tighten the seat belt to its maximum every time you put baby in the car, and failure to tighten the belt sufficiently does compromise the safety of the seat in the event of an accident.

The clip on/off base option is also a LOT easier if you have a 3 door car with a passenger airbag, for example, where access to the rear seat is difficult, and baby can’t travel in the front because of the airbag. That said, there are some infant car seats that are not suitable for use without the base, but most give you the option.


My carseat does not require a base – it is a Cosco Scenera. It also does not have a removable infant carrier feature – it’s just for in the car. All carseats on the market today must meet stringent safety regulations, so any seat that you purchase (provided it is installed correctly) is just fine.

Princess Ninja

The bases are just for convenience, so that you can snap the carseat in and out as needed without disturbing your baby or fussing with the buckle. It’s not safer, but it isn’t less safe either. The LATCH system, which most newer model american cars have and is now required, is also just as safe as using a seatbelt, because it restrains the carseat in certain key points (at the base of the carseat and at the top for forward facing seats to prevent forward motion) and doesn’t move like a seatbelt would.

Honestly, it’s a hassle to put the base in the car the first time you do, but it is nice to be able to snap him in and out. Once you do it right one time, you may only have to make minor adjustments and don’t have to worry if the angle is right so much. The angle is very important, so if you can’t get it right with the base, you shouldn’t use it, and vice versa.
And I’ve only seen the infant seats with bases, like, the ones that are only rear facing. I don’t think they make forward facing ones with bases.


The base is made for safety and convienance. It’s safer in a crash because the base makes the infant seat more secure. It’s more convienant b/c you don’t need to buckle in every time, the base stays in, and all you need to do is connect the seat to the base (most just lock in when you put them in).

So no fumbling with seatbelts or harnesses. Some car seats are made without bases. Most car seats can be used with a standard seatbelt even without the base (Not as safe doing it this way though), so I would only recommend doing this in a “Must” situation.

Some of the convertible car seats, have bases on them that offer a recline feature and can be removed….Removing these bases does not change the saftey of the seat. For example, my Eddie Bauer 3 in 1 convertible seat. Has a recline base, but in the rear facing position, the car seat with the base did not fit well in my car.

These particular seats, the base can be removed without changing the safety…the base on this is purely for comfort. Every seat is different. You need to look into the manufacturer’s recommendations for the installation regarding a base or seatbelt installation and it’s safety. Best of luck, hope this was helpful!


I would check with your local car seat safety installers/inspection places, but when my son was born 16 months ago, we were told yes. We tend to take trips into NY alot and asked if it was okay so we could use cabs when he was really young. We were told that the seats all though made to fit in the base, they do have the “strap or seat belt” holder type thing on the top going over the baby abd the seat. I wouldn’t receommend doing it for a long period of time, but I do believe that you can still do this.


You need whatever the seat is designed to be used with. Some baby car seats have bases and some don’t. And some can be used with or without the base. The base isn’t really there for safety. It’s there because it’s a PITA to get the seatbelt tight enough round an infant seat every single time you put it in the car.

If you strap the base in, you can leave it there and just clip the seat in and out. Also, it prevents people from doing dangerous things like strapping the seat in forward facing.
