  • Outgrowing the Bucket Seat
    You know that oh-so-heavy infant car seat you've been lugging around? Your baby will outgrow it sometime during the first year of life. The next step is a rear-facing seat that stays in the car (although you can buy forward-facing seats for infants as young as one year of age, rear-facing is much safer). This brings some significant changes. There will be no more naps in the car seat at the grocery store or restaurant. No more quick changes between cars (the larger seats are much more difficult to move from car to car). Embrace the change, though, as it is inevitable and rarely as dramatic as it might seem.
  • Outgrowing the Infant Tub

Whatever you choose, though, it is still necessary to keep a hand on baby at all times during bathtime.
