For this blog post I will be writing about something a little more personal. On Wednesday my wife Shelley will be moving to the third trimester. We are super excited to be that much closer to having a child of our own. Still, we know that time will move a little bit slower from here on out.
Here are some of the baby's milestones that we have to look forward to in the third trimester:

What sound will help your baby sleep at night???

One of the biggest things that parents need to learn about their new baby is how to get them to sleep. I don't know how they did it, but somehow my parents discovered that my little sister needed to have the rocking chair set near the bathroom, with the shower on and the vacuum running for her to fall asleep.

Give the baby some time to play and wind down before he or she goes to sleep. Don't get the baby worked up with vigorous games, or bedtime will be that much more difficult.
Offer your baby the opportunity to eat or drink.

Lower Risk of Sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS)
One of the saddest Things that can happen to new parents is something that can be avoided. Sudden infant death syndrome actually happens when an infant suffocates due to its inability to avoid objects in the crib. Here is a checklist of things to avoid to keep this tragedy.
