Love Knot Ring Meaning

Mark asks…

Do I really need a stroller for a newborn?

I live in the city,so I really rather avoid the bulky travel system.

The umbrella stroller for newborns, chicco liteway,is almost 20 pounds! Which to me completely kills the whole point of an umbrella stroller(being lightweight).

I was thinking of just buying carriers like a wrap, ring sling,etc until the baby is 5-6 months old and then getting a lightweight umbrella stroller. Is this practical? Anyone with experience/thoughts about this? Thanks
@stars thanks, its reassuring to see someone else has done it. what carrier did you use?

LoveKnots answers:

Oh it is so sad that carriers have a bad reputation here. Sadly, most ‘store bought’ carriers at places like Toys R Us are garbage and hurt your back. I used the Slingling pouch for newborn, my husband prefers the ring sling for easy adjustment. We now have an Ergo carrier an carry him on our back at age 2. Some people love the Moby (wraps) for a newborn, but I hate fussing with fabric and tying knots. Same goes with the Baby Bjorn/Snugli, the cheap ones hurt your back and the $$$ ones don’t last that long before your back kills you. They look like an Ergo or Beco, but they don’t distribute the weight against your hips.

Here is an example:
The Slingling is similar to the Jelly Bean by Munchkin and Seven sling, the difference is the quality and fit. Slingling has numerous sizes not some S,M, L sizing. Fit is important in a non-adjustable sling. Pus, quality means more comfy on your back, I could carry him to about 18 pounds before I grew tired.

And slings are safe. Yes some babies died in them, but these have been due to improper wearing (like wearing baby under your clothes!) or unsafe sling style like these duffel slings that have killed about a dozen babies:

Robert asks…

How do you find the topic sentence in the following paragraph. i know the topic sentence supports the thesis?

but I’m not sure if the thesis is “Almost every wedding tradition has a symbolic meaning that originated centuries ago.” or if the thesis sentence is “Weddings may vary enormously today, but many couples still include ancient traditions to signify their new life together.” The paragraph is listed below. Can anyone help me? 10 points for the correct answer!!! Thank you :)

Almost every wedding tradition has a symbolic meaning that originated centuries ago. For example, couples have been exchanging rings to symbolize unending love for over a thousand years. Most often, the rings are worn on the third finger of the left hand, which was thought to contain a vein that ran directly to the heart. The rings in ancient times were sometimes made of braided grass, rope, or leather, giving rise to the expression “tying the knot.” Another tradition, the bridal veil, began when marriages were arranged by the families and the groom was not allowed to see his bride until the wedding. The tossing of rice at newlyweds has long signified fertility blessings, and the sweet smell of the bride’s bouquet was intended to drive away evil spirits, who were also diverted by the surrounding bridal attendants. Weddings may vary enormously today, but many couples still include ancient traditions to signify their new life together.

LoveKnots answers:

In the correct formatting of a thesis essay, the thesis statement is always the last sentence of the introduction. In body paragraphs, the topic sentence is the first sentence. The topic sentence is a statement that relates to the thesis and supports it. The rest of the body paragraph includes examples that make the topic sentence legit.

Lisa asks…

Can I give my 16 week old son Baby Advil (Pediatric Drops for Infants)?

I know the title sounds like yes I can, and there is an weight/age/dosage chart on it, but I just finished reading a few things about ibuprofen. My son is teething so bad he’s crying, and nothings working. I let him bite down on my finger, suck/bite at cold wet baby face towels, teethers, eats his fists/fingers, teddies etc but It’s getting worse. I don’t want him to suffer! I know baby Tylenol is my best bet, but there wasn’t any at the store. It was between baby Advil and Orajel which I was already told to stay away from!

HELP! would it be okay for him to take it? He was born 10 lbs 14 oz and he weighs around 15/17 lbs now! Thanks any advice would help.

LoveKnots answers:

To help soothe your baby’s teething discomfort, follow these guidelines:

* Gently massage the swollen gums with one of your fingers (be sure to wash your hands thoroughly).
* Take a clean, soft washcloth and soak it in apple juice. Wring it out, tie the cloth in a knot, and place it in the freezer for 30 minutes (it will not freeze hard like water does, rather, it will get very cold and nearly frozen). When frozen, give it to your baby, placing it first in his mouth, then his hands. You will see almost immediate results. Your baby will love the apple juice and most doctors approve it for even very young infants. The combination of the cold and the texture of the washcloth will begin to ease your baby’s pain right away.
* Give your child something cold to gnaw on like a Popsicle or a chilled teething ring (not a frozen one), or a frozen banana.
* Do not use lotions or ointments that are supposed to reduce teething pain in a baby less than four months. They wash out of the baby’s mouth within minutes. They may contain an agent that could numb the throat and cause the baby to choke.
* NEVER, under any circumstances, place alcohol into your baby’s mouth. Many well meaning friends and relatives (there sure are a LOT of those “well meaning friends and relatives”) may suggest a “dab of whiskey”, but this is NEVER ok. Alcohol can act like a poison to a young baby.
* Acetaminophen may be used for a few days if your baby is uncomfortable.
* Baby Advil (ibuprofen) can be used as well and can be more effective than acetaminophen because ibuprofen contains an anti inflammatory component and acetaminophen does not.

Uh, You know what it is what it is
When we do what we do
Uh, Yea

Look
If good girls get down on the floor
Tell me how low will a bad girl go
She probably pick it up drop it down real slow
Look at that she’s upside down on the pole
That’s when I grab the knot throw it up in the sky
Let it come down slow watch it all fly
Front to the back
Then side to the side
Can we head back to my crib for the night

That’s how it goes down
All night long
She whisper in my ear says she loves my song
This is Why I’m Hot, she got it on her phone
Top ten download number one ring tone
I’m in my zone
Tell me what’s good, what it be
Can’t say I’m whatcha want
I got whatcha need
All night, it’s alright
We can dance, but ya gotta keep it up a lil somethin’

Girl tell me if you want it like this

Calm on you ass that’s if you let me touch
I don’t care ’bout your breast
You can be an A cup
I know what I like
And baby that’s below the waist
I’m a baller baby I’ll hold us safe
I got about ten lawyers to blow the case
So we don’t gotta worry ’bout those who hate

Homey don’t act like you know what I mean
Oh see I’m the freshest motherfucker on the screen oh

Grand Monea pop a case till the dawn

So if you really down baby we can get it on
