    A few random tips for new parents.

    Get an electronic thermometer that's easy and quick to use. Not one that you have to put in the mouth. I use an ear thermo.

    If an infant or toddler has diarrhea or vomits, you have to rehydrate with Pedialyte. If they won't drink it, freeze it and feed them ice chips.

    Never strap a child in a car seat with a thick winter jacket on. There's too much slack and they'll just fly out of the seat in an accident.

    Kirkland baby wipes from Costco are awesome.

    And most importantly, don't lose your child at Disneyland for a couple hours. Apparently, four year olds don't enjoy theme parks by themselves.

    When your toddler tells you a little story about anything, reply “and then what happened?”
    It’s great. Sort of the equivalent to them asking you why over and over. Also you get a pretty creative story out of them.

    I know this post is years old but I got so excited when I read it that I bought one on Amazon 15min later. I never even knew these kind of things existed so thanks a bunch for posting! My little boy is only 15 months but he's a terror on his motorized quad and anything else with wheels. He will no doubt love this.

    We have used the Motorola and a couple of others and the Motorola is THE BEST by far! Even if it costs more it gives us the farthest range ( think yard work) and is the most consistent. They sell some of these (like we have) that have one base unit and two cameras if you have more than one kid/ baby and it cycles between the two rooms. We tried two different systems and the wi-fi signals compete with each other! So it is better to have the dual camera system!

    We bought one of these used and it is a GOD-SEND! We use at the house and when we are camping. We also use it in our travel trailer! This is a must have! Sometimes, if I have the space I just set up my summer weight tent without the rain fly to wrangle/ contain crawlers! I just set it up when we are camping or in the yard and it keeps them cool and the bugs off of them!

    We have this exact one and it works well.
