    My one and only baby tip (but it’s a good one): When the baby is old enough to sleep through the night but isn’t (about 4 months), put the kid in a car seat that’s been pulled from the car, strap the little guy in, then put the car seat in a nice, cozy place — like the crib.

    I had read years ago in Time Magazine about how babies who are suspected of being prone to SIDS should be strappd in a car seat to sleep because it’s the best position for digestion and for not accidentally suffocating. I asked my wife if we could try it and she said NO! So I did it anyway without telling her.

    I fed the kid a bottle before midnight, then strapped him in the car seat and put him in his room. I went to sleep. About 6:30 in the morning I heard my wife scream, “The baby!” I shot out of bed in a panic, thinking something was horribly wrong. My wife said, “He missed his feeding last night. He never woke up!” Oh my god, what had I done? We ran into the kid’s room and over to the crib.

    He was sleeping peacefully in his car seat. I took him out and he was fine. My wife was mad for about a minute, then she realized that this car seat thing was brilliant. We put him to sleep in the car seat for the next month or so, at which point he was so used to sleeping through the night he didn’t need it anymore.

    My theory is that rolling around in the crib is what wakes babies up. When they are comfortably strapped in a car seat they can’t move around, so they sleep longer. Anyway, it worked for us.

    ERIK- As a NYC paramedic and someone who has worked n the emergenc medical field for over 26 years here’s what I have, it aint pretty but it is real. The umbillicus…falls off don’t panic. Many babies choke a little on milk and on breast feeding, they turn blue as the choke but pink up and go back to normal quickly…don’t panic. Babes often get high feers quickly, sometimes it causes febrile (fever) seizures, scary as hell when you are not used to it. Don’t panic. Always call 911 if you are unsure, always listen to the paramedics and don’t try to fight, we are just there to help. We seem blase because we see this stuff all the time. Don’t panic unless you see me panic. Always know the babys weiht so you can gie the correct amount of tylenol (for fevers). Find a place that offers infant and child CPR in your area. It may save your childs life. Most important 1 of every 4 women have been reportedly sexually assualted in life. More are unreported, teach your daughter self confidance, self reliance and to respect herself. Show her how a man shold treat and respect her by how you treat her mother. I see so many girls who think they deserve what they get. In NYC the number one killer of pregnant women is the father of the child. Teach her how a man should treat a woman. Even the little ones see what you think they don’t. Sorry for the downer, but ya asked.

    Before I finish watching this episode…(yes, I’m late)…you said you’re rooting for the Colts because “you don’t like most of the people on this board and it seems like half of them are from Chicago….”?!?!?!? I’m shocked! Screw football (well, no, I LOVE football, but I mean I don’t even really care who you root for, I’m still a die-hard Bears fan regardless), but you don’t like most of the people on this board??

    What? Dude, you’re a nice guy, why would you say that? I mean, unless people are attacking you personally, then that’s a reason not to like them. I’m sure you have no problem with me, so I’m not taking it personally, but it seems like that could be a bad PR move to say that on your video. But, I guess that’s what happens with Colts fans. Colts. Even if the Bears weren’t there, I’d be rooting for the NFC cause Peyton and Eli are cry-babies. Archie was great, those two are total “Daddy’s boys”.

    OK…sorry to rant dude…I just it was shocking to hear you say that you don’t like most of the people on this board. See you later man…have a blast in Miami. And, c’mon, go Bears man!!

    See you later,
    T

    GO BEARS!!!!!!!!!!!

    Gary,
    Good to see you back in true form; always reserved and not too over the top. I was out your way visiting colleges with my daughter but didn’t have time to stop by. Maybe if she winds up there I’ll have time to stop by. BTW Erik, congrats; daughters rock. Mine is a total sports nut; rooting for the Colts this super bowl. Spend time with her; soccer dad, softball coach, Y Indian Princesses: its all good and the reward is worth the investment in time.

    Gary, something about this episode made me want to give you a hug!
    Erik – I second the gas drops and the whitenoise machine. My daughter slept to waves crashing every night. Oh, and the bouncy chair, vibrating chair with a seatbelt so baby doesn’t vibrate onto the floor. The best invention ever.

    Firstly…Erik, congrats!!! Don’t worry, once your lovely daughter is born, you’ll know what to do. Just love her. And Gary…you mentioned something in this episode about people not liking ‘Wine Library TV’ the first time they see it…well, I LOVED WLTV the first time, and have never missed an episode! Keep it up, Gary, and it’s good to have you back!!!

    What Darlene said.
    I loved it from the first epi I saw.
    Glad you’re back – you were missed.
    Erik, congrats. I have some advice that I didnt see here. As she’s growing up, toddling (is that a word? :) around, and you see her take a spill – if you know that it wasnt a nasty one (ie:didnt come down hard on her head or face) don’t run over to her all panic stricken. Smile, as if it were no biggie, and you’ll see how she’ll cry less and how self-reliant she becomes.
    WHEN IS SHE DUE?? So we can count the days with you!

    RE Tony S. comment above.
    I too got hung up on that line where Gary was throwing down for Colts.

    I think what he meant to say (I hope) is:
    “I don’tâ?? like most of the people on this board, since half are from Chicago- (like or want Bears to win)”

    PS: Gary I’ll bet you 3 bottles of that fishy-nose wine that the Bears win (I’ll take the 7 point spread though)
    GO BEARS!

    Great to have you back Gary!!!!!
    Eric………never mind the books or tips, your wife will do just what your mother-in-law tells her…….and by a coincidence, it will be the opposite of what you (and the rest of the scientific world) would think it’s right !!!! Good luck!!!

    Erik –

    #1 tip:
    google up some Priscilla Dunstan and her research into recognizing baby’s 5 communicative sounds or words.

    #2 tip:
    Google up some “baby sign language” too – babies can also learn sign much younger than they can speak, so why not use that natural ability to help her communicate and you AND her will know very little frustration in the area of baby communication needs that first year or two.

    I guess facilitating communication is a big deal for me, but I can’t see anything else that cuts down on frustration more and a frustrated baby is really sad to see (and hear) but when it can be easily avoided by learning true communication with the baby, it’s more than sad really.
