Are You the Black Sheep in Your Family?
An article I read online made me think of this question, “Are you the black sheep in your family?” I think sometime or another most people consider themselves the black sheep of their family. You could be the Black Sheep in your family, but it doesn't always mean that you're looked upon as being bad, just different.

Drop-Side Cribs Outlawed
WASHINGTON - It's the end of the traditional crib that has cradled millions of babies for generations.
The government outlawed drop-side cribs on Wednesday after the deaths of more than 30 infants and toddlers in the past decade and millions of recalls.
It was a unanimous vote by the Consumer Product Safety Commission to ban the manufacture, sale and resale of the cribs, which have a side rail that moves up and down, allowing parents to more easily lift their child from the crib.
The new standard requiring cribs to have fixed sides would take effect in June. The move by CPSC would also prohibit hotels and childcare centers from using drop-sides, though those facilities would have two years to purchase new cribs. CLICK HERE for more info.
The 3 Hottest Toys this Christmas
It's that time of the year where websites list their top picks for toys. BabyNameGuide.com is no exception. We came up with the top three. This year is much harder to pick because there's no one toy that stands out. Last year it was Zhu Zhu Pets, which are toy hamsters. They are again very popular, but in our opinion not deserving of the top three. Another big item this year, which is worthy of mentioning is the DSi XL. This game system is fun with lots of options. Most importantly it has parental controls. If I had to mention one other toy, it would be an oldie, but goodie... the Toy Train. I've seen a lot of toy trains this year. And our youngest asked for one. It seems to me toy trains started to make a come back when “The Polar Express” came out a few years back. So, what are the top 3 picks for the 2010 season. I would bet on these three toys (Paper Jamz, Kinect for Xbox 360 and My Pillow Pets) as being the top choices. Here's why... CLICK HERE.
