1. A little help in the first 12 months
My favorite baby shower gift is "Baby's First Year," a calendar of learning games and memories that starts with the day your baby is born. Written by Norma Jean Stodden, an associate professor at the University of Hawaii, it offers engaging ways to play with your baby during that crucial first year of life, a time when new parents can be a bit baffled. The simple suggestions for daily interaction will help stimulate your baby's development, and there are stickers to record milestones like that first precious smile. Now in its second edition, "Baby's First Year" ($12.95) has sold more than 40,000 copies. Order yours at www.simplyuniversal.net or by emailing email@example.com. — Susan Essoyan Login for more...
