A Hidden Risk - Carbon Monoxide

Many safety issues are often at the front of our minds. Turn off the oven, make sure the clothes iron is cool and unplugged, etc. However, there is another major safety issue that you may not think about a lot. It's carbon monoxide. The problem with this gas is that you cannot smell it, and you will not know it exists. But, a family can die while sleeping because it will cause headaches, dizziness, confusion, nausea and fainting. If you are in bed when this happens you may not wake up to save yourself....

 


Babies and Finances – Find the Bargains

Be a shrewd shopper when it comes to baby items. Ask your OB-Gyn physician or hospital if they have a sign-up packet. Many manufacturers will send packets of coupons and offers to new mothers. You can look online at company websites to see if they have coupons, offers, or loyalty programs. These will help you save money on the products you'll use, such as formula, diapers and baby food. You can also watch the weekly circulars of big box department stores such as Babies R Us or Target for weekly baby deals a...

 


Don’t Get Carried Away With Your Nursery

When people are planning for their new baby, one of the most exciting things is planning the perfect nursery. But remember to keep it simple, and take a long-range view. You may love that jungle print wallpaper and crib set, but will your child at age four or five? If you want to go for a theme such as jungles or nursery rhymes, use pieces that convey the theme but aren't overwhelming and costly to replace later. You could frame pictures of the theme topic (animals, cars, rabbits, etc) and use fabrics tha...

 


Teen Driving Distractions - Extra Passengers

You probably think a lot about some of the most common safety issues that teen drivers must remember, like texting, and speeding. But, there’s another big distraction that you should keep in mind, too many passengers. When a teenager is learning to drive, they don't need the added stress of extra passengers in the car for at least the first year of driving. It may sound like a relief to let your child drive your younger children around, or fun to drive their friends around. But it's not safe and ...

 


Babies and Finances – Re-think Your Budget

As a new parent, you're filled with equal amounts of excitement and worry over your new baby. One worry is the amount of debt that can occur with a new child. BabyCenter.com distributed a survey to 1,000 new mothers and found the average parent spends over $10,000 during baby's first year. Baby expenses include diapers, clothes, food and an increase in basic utility costs. When you bring home your new bundle of joy, how do you avoid or lessen your new baby debt? Re-think Your Budget If you're pregnant, ...

 


Preparing Your Child for the Baby

The only thing better than having a child, is having two, or three, or – well, you get the point. However, your first child won’t always welcome the newcomer with open arms. So, be sure to help them prepare and be optimistic for their new best friend. Get your child excited about a new baby by including them in the planning. Give them their own “baby” to care for as well. They can feel pride in folding baby clothes or picking out a special toy for their sibling. Talk to your p...

 


Babies and Finances – We All Tend to Over-Prepare

Babies don't need everything that’s available in the local children's boutique. Stick to the basics. You will need items like a stroller, clothing, car seat, bedding and a changing table. If you're unsure if you need an item immediately, ask moms at a local parenting group or online. What you do need to purchase in bulk is diapers. You can ask friends and family for some at a baby shower to get you started. It's wise to purchase diapers in multiple sizes because newborns outgrow diapers quickly and...

 


Babies and Finances – Benefits Through Insurance and Taxes

Be sure to ask if your insurance covers prenatal and maternity expenses. WebMD.com puts the average cost of childbirth at $3,000-$10,000, depending on the type of birth you have. Saving even a fraction of the cost for these expenses using your insurance can go a long way. When birth is near, see if your employer offers the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA). FMLA lets you take 12 work weeks of leave in a single year to care for your child and recover from childbirth. Ask human resources about exercising this o...
