I don’t know about you, but I was so excited to set up our baby’s nursery. There were so many decisions! My husband and I finally agreed on pink and yellow as the color theme. I started browsing the web for ideas. We painted the room a pastel pink and put a pale yellow border around the room. I found a lamp that matched perfectly! I found a beautiful rug that was pink with nice large yellow flowers…perfect! I was having difficulty choosing a crib set. If that wasn’t difficult enough, I started hearing about the “bumper debate.” Are bumpers safe to use in a crib? I got so many opinions from family and friends. Some said it’s completely ok, while others said they would never use one. Others informed me of something called a “breathable bumper.” As nice as it sounded though, it wasn’t pretty. I wanted to keep my baby safe, but at the same time have a pretty room. I didn’t know who’s opinion to trust, so I decided it was worth a call to my pediatrician. After all, he’s the one I trust with the well being of my baby. He calmed me down and told me that although there are many different opinions, as long as the bumper has ties on the top and on the bottom, bumpers are completely safe. By having ties on the top and bottom, they are completely secure around the crib and the baby can’t pull it and suffocate from it. This made me so happy! Now the search for crib sets with bumpers that had ties on the top and bottom that would match my color theme was ready to begin!
I didn’t expect to find it so hard to find these safe bumpers and when I finally found bumpers with ties on the top and bottom, there weren’t any that matched my color theme or they looked very cheaply made. I was a bit frustrated, but not wanting to give up, I continued searching. I came across the site “sheetworld.com .” I thought I was in heaven! They have bumpers with 9 ties on the top and 9 ties on the bottom which keeps the bumper securely in place. Additionally, they have hundreds of colors and patterns to choose from! There were so many that would match my pink and yellow color theme! Did I mention how excited I was?! I spent some time looking through sheetworld’s many colors and patterns and finally decided on one. Another great aspect of sheetworld.com , which I didn’t know would be beneficial, until I saw it, is that I was able to buy each part of a crib set separately and mix and match the products to make my own creative and unique crib set. I came up with my own combination of sheets, a bumper, crib skirt, and quilt cover that goes so well with my pink and yellow theme! I am so thankful to sheetworld.com !

Every year it is estimated that 90,000 children under the age of eight are injured in car wrecks, and more than 1,000 that are killed. The best way to avoid such tragedies is to always make sure you use your child’s car seat consistently and correctly. All states require children under the age of three to sit in a car seat, and many laws require booster seats with older children as well. Besides for it being the law, using your child’s car seat properly could mean the difference between life and death. Here are some tips on how to keep your child the safest when traveling in a car:
It is highly recommended that you don’t use a used or second-hand car seat. Used car seats may have missing parts, and the plastic may have become weakened from excessive use. Before buying a used car seat, make sure it comes with its manufacturer’s instruction manual, has all of its parts, was never involved in an accident, and has never been recalled.
Avoid turning your child face-front in the car seat too soon. The most common type of crash is a head-on collision which can force your child’s head to jerk forward violently if they were facing forward. Leave the car seat in the rear position for as long as possible.
Always make sure to install the car seat correctly. Make sure everything is secured tightly to the car seat and it doesn’t move or slide any which way. As a law since 2002, all cars must be equipped with the LATCH system. If you have an older model car, it is highly recommended you update it with a LATCH system to keep your child safe and secure in the car seat.
If your car is a pre-1996 model, you may need to get a locking clip to hold the seat belt tight. If you can move your child’s seat belt more than an inch to the front or sides, make sure to install the locking clip about half an inch above the buckle.
Of course, always make sure your child is buckled into the car seat, making sure none of the buckles are twisted and they are secured tightly. Make sure that the plastic clip that holds the straps together isn’t too low. Slide the clip up to armpit level before securing it, or else there is a chance the child can be ejected from the seat. Besides for buckling your child into the car seat, make sure the actual car seat is buckled into the car as well.
Don’t move your child out of his car seat or booster too soon. Car seats should be used until your child weighs 40 pounds. Booster seats should be used until your child is 4 feet 9 inches tall and at least 8 years old.
Never hold your child on your lap while driving. You can not secure him tight enough and you can crush him to death in the event of a crash. Never let two children share one seatbelt together, and never let a child under the age of thirteen sit in the front seat. If they must sit in the front seat for whatever reasons, make sure to switch the passenger-side airbag off, since they can cause serious harm to children.
We at Sheetworld.com are invested in every child’s safety. By following these steps, you will be able to find peace in mind that your child is the safest he or she could possibly be. Safe driving!

Learn to administer cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) from a certified instructor. Classes are offered at hospitals, community centers, and local chapters of the American Red Cross or American Heart Association.
It’s preferable to attend a class than to try to learn a set of instructions from a book or Web site (although it’s good to have these materials available to refresh your memory).
Your instructor will use a child-size mannequin to demonstrate how to perform every aspect of the technique, such as how far back to tilt your child’s head and just how hard to strike her back if she’s choking on something. Practicing each step of CPR yourself, with an experienced instructor to guide you, will help you learn how to do it and remember what you’ve learned so you’ll feel prepared in the event of an emergency.
You can even have a certified instructor come to your home or another gathering place to teach a group you assemble. You might invite babysitters, grandparents, and anyone else who cares for your child. Or invite other parents and make a party out of it. The Red Cross asks for about three weeks’ notice to schedule an in-home class, with a minimum of six people and a maximum of 12.
Call your local American Red Cross chapter to find out where the nearest class is being offered or to schedule an in-home class.
A typical infant and child CPR class consists of two sessions: The first teaches how to care for babies from birth to age 1. The second addresses children from age 1 through age 12. The full class usually lasts about five hours, or four hours for just one of the sessions. The techniques are different for babies and older children, so you may want to learn both.
It’s worth this small investment of money and time to learn skills that could save your child’s life. For those who can’t attend a CPR course, the American Heart Association offers a Family & Friends Anytime Personal Learning Program kit. It contains a small inflatable mannequin, a DVD, and a booklet of CPR instructions that can be used individually or to teach your family or a group. (Learning the technique with the kit won’t certify you in CPR, however.)

Twins can mean double the trouble and double the fun, but it’s hard to remember the fun part when you’re struggling to get your crying twins to go to sleep and stay asleep. Here are some recommended strategies and tips. Establish healthy sleeping patternsKeep your toddlers on the same sleep schedule to develop healthy sleep patterns and to give you a break. If your twins nap or go to bed at different times, one or both of them may be awake at any given time, leaving you feeling overwhelmed.
Establishing a soothing bedtime routine such as a warm bath, a bedtime story, and a few minutes of cuddling, will help prepare your twins for sleep. If you stick to a consistent bedtime routine, your toddlers will soon learn the signal that it’s time to settle down.
Help them learn to fall asleep on their own by letting them drift off once they’re in bed, rather than just before you put them down to sleep.
The tendency is to take care of the screaming baby before the calm one. Try to resist this behavior because your quiet child will miss out on the attention he needs. Ensure that your quiet one is happy and settled first. Don’t worry about one twin waking up the other: Most twins and multiples aren’t bothered by their sibling’s crying, even when they’re in the same room. Discourage nighttime waking Ensure that your twins remain quiet and calm at night by keeping their room dimly lit, and don’t play or talk to them during the night more than necessary. You can give them a special soft toy or blanket to sleep with, which are comforting and can help them go back to sleep.
When your twins get older, they’re more likely to spend bedtime and naptimes talking and playing rather than getting their needed shut-eye. Some parents find that giving each twin his or her own room stops the nighttime antics and gives everyone some much-needed rest.
