Oh, how I wish I had known about this years ago! Trace your child's hand at every birthday and see it grow. Glue one to the other, but do not glue them down to the mat. (That way you can add next years hand to the back).
5 Great Post-Partum Girdles - no one told me about wearing some kind of abdomen binder postpartum...After my c-section, I felt like my insides were just flopping around, making it very uncomfortable to walk. I bought a big granny girdle and LOVED it. I credit it with shrinking my ginormous, sagging belly back to normal, too.
