tuesday's tip for new mamas: babycenter.com

Whenever you want to find the answer to a question about anything, you google it, right?


Well, I found myself googling lots and lots of questions starting when I was pregnant:

Am I supposed to feel like this?
Why do I hate eating Subway all of a sudden?
Why have I eaten Taco Bell 7 days in a row when I never ate it before?
What do I do about my swollen legs, feet, and ankles?
How do I prevent stretch marks?

And I continued to google after Baby W was born:

What is colic?
What is the best cure for diaper rash? (Triple Paste!)
How do I get my baby to sleep better?!
What kind of sunscreen is safe?
Help! I am just now starting solids at 8 1/2 months!

One of the sites that kept popping up whenever I googled something related to pregnancy and infancy was babycenter.com


So I saw that membership was free and decided to join.  I became a member of the September 2009 birth club (there are so many different groups you can join: Actively Trying, Breastfeeding, Baby Names, Cooking for your Family...just to name a few)  You can read questions and answers that other members have posted and you can ask your own questions.  It is really great to see how many others are going through the same things your child is going through.  I would definitely recommend babycenter.com to anyone who is trying to get pregnant, is pregnant, or has young kids of their own!

I need to sign up for baby center! I google random questions all of the time. And now I eat Taco Bell way too often. Slightly obsessed with the Cheesy Gordita Crunch. It is fabulous! ha!
