Look What’s New: Baby LuLu - Pepper Toes Car Romper

Really, can you get any cuter than this Romper?

Baby Lulu is a leading label that has brought beautifully designed and carefully crafted children's apparel to market for over a decade. Unsatisfied with fabrics that didn't embody her vision, designer Erin Murphy took inspiration from vintage tablecloths and textiles and designed the fabrics that would become her signature, applying new, trend-savvy color palettes, and combining them in fresh ways. She then created patterns that emphasized proper fit and Baby Lulu was born. Featured here is the Baby LuLu Pepper Toes Car Romper, made with 100% Cotton.

Baby Napping Basics

Naptime at our house used to be a recurring mystery: When would Lucy go down today? I'd be on the lookout for clues and remain suspicious through dim lights, books, and droopy eyelids. When I could no longer stand the suspense, I'd plop her in her car seat, where she'd anticlimactically drift off like it was no big deal. I knew Lucy should be napping in her crib, but she hated to, so I was willing to do whatever worked. Thank-fully, sleep experts say this isn't all that bad. "There's no one way to get your baby to nap, so you have to try lots of different things," says Mary Ann LoFrumento, M.D., a pediatrician in Morristown, New Jersey, and the author of Simply Parenting.

If you've ever experienced naptime drama, read on for mom and expert help.

Tips for safe bathing

Bath time can be a fun, special time to share with your toddler. It's also a time for caution, though. The first and most important rule is this: Never, ever leave your toddler unsupervised, even for a minute. Children can drown in less than an inch of water. Gather all of the supplies (soap, towel, etc.) you'll need ahead of time. And if the doorbell peals or the phone rings, and you feel you must answer it, scoop your child up in a towel and take him with you.

Keep these bathing tips in mind to keep your little one safe while he gets squeaky clean.

Paging Dr. Oz: His five favorite health tips for parents

Besides heart surgery, my great professional passion is working with a group called HealthCorps—a program that places energetic, healthy young people in high schools, where they help students live better, healthier lives. Its message stresses mental resilience and the notion that even kids have the power to control their bodies and the world around them.

My wife, Lisa, and I have tried to impart that message to our own four children, and I stress it to my viewers on The Dr. Oz Show. We parents have to be role models. I've distilled what I've learned along the way into these five ultimate health tips for kids.

Baby Vision: What Your Little One Sees

All of your child's other senses -- touch, taste, smell, and hearing -- are ready to go at almost full power at birth. But vision takes some time to develop. For instance, months will pass by before your baby can see in color. For now, she sees in only black, white, and gray. And eye movements are pretty uncoordinated at the beginning, which means a newborn's eyes might move independently of each other. As your baby grows, her eyes will get stronger.

Read on to find out when and what she sees, plus how to keep those baby blues healthy.
