I hope everyone had a wonderful Father’s Day! Ours was very nice! We went out to dinner to a Japanese restaurant with Teppan Tables (picture to the right), where they cook in front of you. My husband and I had our first date at one and we go back a lot. The boys hadn’t been since the eldest was very young and they LOVED it! The 16 month old kept saying “oooohhh!” and my eldest used chopsticks for the first time (they had helpers on them). I was proud of them for trying something new and we were given a compliment how well behaved they were. It was fun! 🙂 I hope everyone’s Father’s Day was great! Please share what you did (good or bad) below in the comments! I’d love to hear about it.
Thank you to everyone who entered the Father’s Day giveaway! As always, I love giving back to the The Baby Sleep Site® readers! We’ll have another giveaway in the Fall and next week we get back to the topic of sleep, but until then, below are the winners to the contest, whom have all been contacted via e-mail:

The Baby Dipper spoon and bowl combo is the genius invention by a mother of two sets of twins which makes it no surprise at all that this set makes feeding baby easy and is perfect to assist toddlers with self-feeding. Barbara Schantz invented the Baby Dipper Bowl as a triangular-shaped bowl which enables parents to feed with one hand while keeping the other hand free. The Baby Dipper features a non-slip base which keeps it in place as either you or your toddler scoops food out of it. The contoured interior of this bowl also helps to guide food onto the spoon and the transparent sides allow for easy viewing of the food. And of course, as a mother who is concerned with all the toxins and chemical that our kids are exposed to these days, you can feel good knowing the Baby Dipper is lead-free and phthalate-free and also shatter proof.
Barbara graciously agreed to provide a Baby Dipper bowl and spoon set to one lucky winner of our Father’s Day giveaway. You can find more information on the Baby Dipper at www.babydipper.com.

No matter what you’ve heard, it’s not a year’s supply of diapers or a baby wipe warmer that will make the biggest difference in your baby’s life – the most important tools of parenthood are actually organization and coordination. Unfortunately, these things don’t always come naturally. That’s why Babble Soft provides easy-to-use software applications with organization and coordination in mind. It doesn’t matter whether you are a stay-at-home parent scheduling your day or if you are returning to work and need to coordinate with a nanny or other caregiver – their tools provide everything you need to give your life that perfect level of structure.
Babble Soft online software allows you to track feedings, pumping, diapers, and medication combined with an online baby album for baby’s first year. For parents on the go, Baby Insights mobile grants you access to the same information you get at home no matter where you are on your iPhone, Blackberry and other mobiles.
