Discussion Topic: Is Bed-Sharing Good or Bad?
"Bed-sharing is the norm in much of the world. Mothers say they sleep with their children to keep them safe, to breastfeed and to be near them." (The Globe and Mail, April 25 2018) Opponents, however, argue that bed-sharing is risky for the child and that it hinders the child from learning independence.

Discussion Topic: Keeping your Sanity
All parents have moments or even whole days when they feel things are spinning out of control. All you want to do is to scream, drop everything, and get a one-way ticket to somewhere, anywhere. Come share with fellow parents the times you felt stressed, frustrated, angry, or burnt out, and what you did to relax, calm down, and get your energy back.
Discussion Topic: Home Safety
Do you realize that most injuries to young children actually occur in their homes? Such injuries are often caused by falls, burns, poisoning, choking, strangulation and drowning.
The good news is that with some careful planning, well-thought-out changes, and a little equipment, many accidents and injuries are preventable.
Let's share our practical tips and favourite safety equipment for childproofing our homes this week at Baby Café.
