My in-laws are on me about reading to my son. This started when he was 2 weeks old. He is now 6 1/2 weeks and I'm still getting asked this question at least once a week. What is a good time to start reading? I am singing, talking, playing, etc.

I have a 3-month-old daughter who was admitted to the hospital because she favors her head to the right and she can't hold her head up at all. The doctors said she has torticollis. What is that? Does it have something to do with why she can't hold her head up? They're going to give her an injection in her neck to temporarily weaken the muscles on one side of her neck.

Your baby may be working on a new skill — rolling over. Rolling is the first way babies learn to change their position by themselves. While side to back usually occurs before back to side, either way, it's fun to watch! Learn more.

As a mother and a fitness expert, I've always thought it unfair that a woman takes on one of her biggest physical challenges—motherhood—when she is at the weakest point of her life. In pregnancy, our bodies go through tremendous hormonal, anatomical, and metabolic changes. These changes may cause us to lose strength and cause new postural problems. Then, all of a sudden, we have this new bundle of joy to carry around at all times while we're sleep-deprived and still recuperating from childbirth.

Is there a parent alive who doesn't wish bedtime went a little more smoothly? One of the best ways to get kids to settle down and go to sleep is by creating a regular bedtime routine, a ritual with Mom and Dad that lets young children know that bedtime is a happy and comforting way to end the day. Babies and young children are creatures of habit, and they enjoy the predictability of a ritual. Performing the same simple tasks before bed each night helps signal that everything is safe and sound, and that it's time to go to sleep.

When our baby was a little over a year old, my wife and I decided the time was right to go for a family outing to one of our favorite, pre-pregnancy restaurants. Personally, I'm more of a take-the-baby-and-see-what-happens kind of guy, but my wife was really worried that our daughter would have a meltdown and we'd be horribly embarrassed.

For many young children, there is no more exciting way to travel than by air. They love to watch the carts, trucks, and airplanes at the airport. Even better, they may get to ride on moving walkways, trains and trams, escalators and elevators—all that even before boarding. On the plane itself, there are the endlessly fascinating tray tables, window shades, and teeny tiny bathrooms to explore, again and again.
