  • No More Pee Fountain
    With newborns (both boys and girls), even a few moments without a diaper often causes baby to pee. You quickly learn to be a master diaper changer, exposing the genitalia to the open air for mere nanoseconds. Somewhere along the line during the first year of life, though, your baby will be much less likely to pee during a diaper change. Don't let your guard down, though, as your baby has probably matured into a wiggling escape artist.

  • 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
    It sneaks up on you. One day, you realize you're still bathing your giant, wiggling baby in that teeny tiny infant tub, and it's just not working anymore. There are several options for bathing a bigger baby, and the best one for you will depend on how stable your baby is (whether he or she can sit well yet). Whatever you choose, though, it is still necessary to keep a hand on baby at all times during bathtime.
  • Pay Attention to Taste
    First things first -- if a medication tastes bad, you will always have a struggle getting a kid to take it. The best way to find out? Ask your kid (for an older child) or taste it yourself (for a younger child). Don't just smell it. Some of the best-smelling children's medications taste absolutely terrible. If it tastes bad, talk with your pharmacist about ways to improve the taste. Liquid medications may be flavored, or other alternative medications may be available.
