A New Mother Turns to the Internet for Answers

Guest post written by my buddy Alfreda Mays

When I found out I was pregnant, I didn't have a clue about how to take care of a baby. I decided to turn to the Internet to learn just what to expect. Preparing for a new baby online was a good decision for me.

I was able to find out what baby products were must-have items. If you take a tour of any baby section of a store, it can be overwhelming. I used the Internet to learn just what products you really needed and which ones you could do without.

By using our clear wimax and DirecTV, I learned more about baby proofing our home. I bought several products like baby gates and table bumpers that really helped once our baby girl was mobile. We also installed cabinet locks and electrical outlet covers.

Although I've made my fair share of calls to the pediatrician, it helped to be able to search for some answers online. When my daughter had a bad case of diaper rash, a friend of mine told me of a homemade formula her doctor had given her. I forgot the details but was able to search the Internet to find the instructions. The homemade diaper rash cream worked fast. The Internet has been a wonderful tool in both preparing for a baby and taking care of a baby.
