Baby's First Year

The first year of life with your new baby is truly amazing. From first smiles to first laughs, from sitting, crawling, standing, and walking, it seems the adventures never stop.

As first time parents, we found ourselves searching for information on milestones and developments. When would the babies crawl? When would they be able to start solid foods? At what point would they sleep through the night? We have gathered together a few of the websites that provide month-by-month milestones and achievements your baby will encounter. Many sites we found will email you updates on what to expect in the next month and suggestions or provide information on how to select the best car seat for you, traveling with your newborn, teething, what to expect from doctor visits - just about everything you can imagine.
American Baby is a sister site to Ladies Home Journal and Better Homes and Garden, and is one of those websites designed to be all-things to all-parents. Personalized baby development calendars, and weekly updates on baby's development, are among the many fun and helpful tools the site offers.
The Baby Zone is another website that is all-things to all-parents. Similar to other sites, Baby Zone has personalized calendars for all aspects of pregnancy concerns - from pre-conception to baby's development. In addition to expert opinions on the usual topics, the Baby Zone also offers articles on a wide variety of topics, including how to decorate on a budget, recipes, expert opinions and more!
