Encourage Your Baby to Move to a Rhythmical Beat

By Dorinne Davis   Have you ever thought about your body’s almost automatic response to move when you hear a specific kind of music?  Not all of us are the same so perhaps your preferred music to move to is Rock, or Country, or Rap, or even Classical.  Somewhere inside of you, your body’s desire to move to a beat triggers a response in your brain.  Your cells want to move too.   For the developing child, from in utero […] Read more »

Holding Her Bottle

Well, this little peanut just started doing something new a few weeks back. I work full-time, so she goes to an in-home daycare during the day. Her care taker is truly amazing. I have never seen anyone who just loves kids the way she does. She is truly fulfilling her calling in life. Anyway, she sends me texts and pictures throughout the day to keep me informed about what my little one is doing. So, the other day, I received […] Read more »

Well Traveled

This past Christmas, my husband and I decided to take our newborn (well, 3 month old) to Florida to see her grandparents for Christmas. The idea of being in a car with an infant for 17 hours made us nervous, but we wanted them to be able to spend the holidays with her so we gave it a try. Packing up the car to begin our journey was a bit hectic. I’d never packed so much to go on a […] Read more »


This happens often, but I never really thought about it before now. On a daily basis, I receive compliments from people when I am out and about. These compliments are not for me, but rather, for my sweet, sweet girl. People always tell me what a good baby she is. They just can’t believe how calm and alert she is at her age. I always say “thank you” then move on with my day with little thought as to why. […] Read more »


It’s time for #TBT (Throw Back Thursday)! I was preparing to hang some new pictures of Avalyn the other day, so I was searching through our photostream. That’s when I came across this picture and just couldn’t believe how much she had changed! I swear there are times when I put her down to bed at night and she wakes up looking like a completely different baby. It’s like she just grows leaps and bounds while she sleeps! This photo […] Read more »

I LOVE BABYPLUS- An acrostic Valentine’s poem

 I continue to be thankful that I used BabyPlus during my pregnancies.   Language acquisition for both of my daughters was extremely advanced. One push of a button was all the effort required to play each lesson. Volunteering in their classrooms allowed me to see their school readiness in action. Each girl is unique, yet amazing.   Bonding time I had with each baby was increased because I was using BabyPlus. Alert from birth and so focused from the start. […] Read more »

Talk to Your Baby When You Are Pregnant

By Dorinne Davis   Parents can often read and react to their child’s emotional states.  Parents often understand a baby’s cry or laugh as illness, fear, hunger, or more. A study reported on ABC news in 2005[1], shared that Allan Schore, a leading neuroscientist at the University of California, Los Angeles’ Center for Culture, Brain, and Development pointed out that the connection between parent and child during the first year of life affects a child’s psychological state and plays a […] Read more »

Two Pregnancy Must Haves

The two things that I think are essential for any pregnancy are BabyPlus and the book, Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child by Dr. Marc Weissbluth. Here’s why: BabyPlus. BabyPlus has done everything it claims to. I have such an easy baby. She latched right away and is a great eater to this day. She’s attentive, yet relaxed and very go-with-the-flow. She’s accomplished milestones earlier than most, which include rolling over at 3 1/2 months and sleeping 12 hours a night […] Read more »

BabyPlus in Exactly 200 Words

I LOVE BabyPlus. I used this for my first pregnancy (and only one so far), and I will definitely use it for my next. My baby was born 23 days early and was so alert and responsive from birth. She latched right away and has been such a great eater ever since. I nurse her and she even takes bottles at any temperature at the sitter’s house. Additionally, she is the best sleeper ever. She started sleeping through the night […] Read more »

Rolling Both Ways

Now, I’ve known about BabyPlus for quite a few years. And, I’ve heard all the fantastic stories of what it can do. But, each and every single day, I am amazed and in awe of my little one. During Christmas break, we went to my parents house in Florida. She did GREAT in the car, but that’s a whole other story. What she did while we were there was something I was so excited my parents could experience with us. […] Read more »
