That my wife is having a boy!!!!! Super freaking excited. It's our first child. Due date is August 12th - just in time for him to watch football.

Does anyone know of any good baby message boards? I want to get some opinions on crib mattresses and various other items.

Woohooo!

Awesome. Congratulations!

As an aside: start saving for the pool so you can scope some young college ass when he's older.

If he had a girl then that could be the case. The only young college ass a guy is going to bring home to the folks is one he is either dating seriousally, knocked up, or getting married.

Crib matresses? :hmmm:
We let all (4 +1 on the way) of our kids sleep with us for the first year.
SIDS scares the shit out of me/us.

Congrats anyways.

There's truth to this.

But I remember being the guy at these girls' houses trying to get loving in the pool/hot tub. The last thing in the world I need to do is look out my own window and see this shit happening to my daughter on my property.

Tough to post from jail.

Sids scares the hell out of me too, which is why I want to research the hell out of the mattresses to see which are the safest.

Congrats man.... kids are great.

If I were you, I would invest in a membership to Consumer Reports. There's a ton of stuff that you will start looking at in a new light with the kid's safety in mind. It's not that expensive and you'll get great information.

There are all sorts of good "parent" sites and forums out there, I haven't viewed one in a while, but you have a lot of choices.

The cool things they have now are the baby monitors with video... those are pretty sweet. And, as a new parent, don't freak yourself out with all the things that can go wrong like SIDS. You'll be so very careful for the first month or so and then you'll realize, the kid is pretty tough and lots of fun. I have a buddy that took being over protective to the extreme with their first... sheesh.

Congrats and good luck.

Yup. Once all my kids could roll over & hold their head up effectively, they went into their own bed. If it meant I was going to have to fight them into their own bed, so be it......SIDS was a risk I wasn't willing to take.


I could be wrong on this, but isn't there a link between SIDS & smoking/2nd hand smoke?

Teach him to respect women and treat them right, else he find out the meaning of wrath from fathers who didn't find out they were having boys.

It's been 8 1/2 months since my little guy was born and it's been awesome.

PM me with questions. I'd be able to help out a bit.

Sids scared the shit out of me too. I woke every time I heard a gasp, and then every time I realized I wasn't hearing them for months.

http://www.sleep-baby-sleep.com/SIDS/prevention.htm
Preventing Sids

Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) is the sudden death during sleep of an apparently healthy child, under the age of one. A diagnosis of SIDS can only be applied after adequate post mortem investigations reveal no other causes. SIDS could be said to be a sudden death during sleep for no apparent reason.







You can reduce the risk of SIDS substantially by following their guidelines.

Put your baby to sleep on his back.
The back to sleep campaign is thought to have reduced Sudden Infant deaths by between 50 - 75%. This is fairly new advice. Older mums (like me!) were probably told to put babies to sleep on their stomachs. However, medical opinion is unanimous. Putting baby to sleep on his/her back is the single most important thing you can do to prevent SIDS.
(More about Back to Sleep)

Use a firm Mattress
with a fitted sheet. Do not put baby to sleep (even for a nap) on soft surfaces such as water beds, sofa cushions, sheepskins or sleeping bags.

Remove all soft things from the crib/sleep area
Take away fluffy blanket, pillows, soft toys, duvets etc

Keep baby's face uncovered.
Make sure that baby's face stays uncovered and that blankets cannot shuffle up during the night. It is better to use sleep clothing rather than blankets. If you do use blanket make sure that you place baby at the foot of the crib (with his feet to the bottom) and the blanket firmly tucked under the mattress and no higher than baby’s chest..

Do not smoke
Do not smoke during pregnancy and do not allow others to smoke round your baby.

Sleep near to your baby.
It is suggested that you should keep baby in the parent’s bedroom until 6 months old. It is NOT intended that you share a bed with your infant. It is hard to follow the SIDS prevention rules in an adult bed. The mattress is usually too soft and the pillows and fluffy bedding provide additional risks.

If you use a pacifier for sleep or nap times do not reinsert it once baby is asleep

Do not allow your baby to overheat
The room should be at a temperature that is comfortable for an adult. Do not use too many clothes or blankets.

Make sure everyone knows these prevention tips.
Some of this advice is new (especially back to sleep) and older carers may not know. It is important that everyone who looks after you baby is aware of the steps to keep your baby safe.

Congrats!! Check out www.baby-gaga.com for advice. That's where I went when I was pregnant. Other than the occassional drama, that site helped me out a lot. Oh and FYI about the crib mattress... the firmer, the better. Don't go w/ a cheap mattress and make sure to purchase at least 2 waterproof mats to put between the mattress and the fitted sheet, (trust me, it saves time when accidents happen).
