Convesation On Yahoo Answers About Dog Clothes Hangers

Michael asks…

Top 10 things new parents should have or don’t need?

My husband and I are about to do our baby registery. What are some main items that we may not think are nesessary but should have or things that arent very useful that may seem to be… Thanks.

Yahoo Answers answers:

I hope this helps you. Items with the * are things that either no one bought off my registry or very few people bought (for example, I received 2 small packages of diapers and my husband and I have bought the rest.)

Top things I use:
1. FORMULA (even if you’re wanting to breast feed – if you’re like me and your milk doesn’t ever come in, your baby will be awfully hungry for a day or two until you get to the store to get formula. Thankfully, my mom had bought a small container of newborn formula. I thought she was crazy at the time, but I am SO thankful now.)
2. Furniture*
3. Diapers* and wipes*
4. Changing pad* with covers* (we have 2 covers and it works just fine)
5. Clothes hamper or basket to put dirty clothes in
6. Burp cloths*
7. Baby bathtub
8. Diaper genie and refills (I know others say you don’t need it, but we use ours multiple times a day and LOOOOOVE it. No smell at all.)
9. Toiletries like diaper rash cream, bath soap (highly recommend the bedtime bath), lotion, etc. Although I still haven’t figured out how I’m going to use the baby oil.
10. Car seat of some sort (I have the kind with the base and I don’t really think it’s much harder to get it in and out of the car that doesn’t have the base in it, although it’s handy because if you install it correctly you know it’s at the right angles and whatnot.)
11. Boppy*
12. Glider*
13. Hangers*
14. Baby laundry soap* (You may not need but 1 tub of it, but you have no idea right now whether or not your baby will have that super-sensitive skin that needs it for a year or two.)
15. Baby/Toddler Books* (we didn’t register for any of these, but we use them every day and so I wish I had more.)
16. A “Baby’s First Year” Book for mom and dad (another thing we didn’t register for but we got the American Academy of Pediatrics one and we read that sucker every night. I’ve used it for reference many times already too, and she’s only a month and a half old.)
17. Diaper bag* (Someone else said the hospital gives you bags, and yes they do, but one was a piece of crap and the nicer one was so so small we couldn’t use it as a diaper bag. I think it’s worth it to have a nice resilient diaper bag. You will use it every time you leave the house.)

Now how about I put down a few things NOT to register for
1. Clothes (simply because everyone will buy 1-2 outfits and everyone buys what they want anyway. The one set of gowns I registered for I didn’t even get. Grandmas and family will buy a few more as he/she gets older. I also recommend buying outfits on clearance a year in advance. The other day I got a $14 sweater for her, size 9 months, for $3! And her first swimming suit for under $2!)
2. Blankets (didn’t register for a single one and we got upwards of 20 and are still getting more.)
3. Towels and washcloths (another thing we didn’t register for at all and we have a closet full of them. We probably have 20-30 baby washcloths.)
4. Baby shoes (you will never use them. We tried using a pair for church one day and they fell off her feet. I didn’t want to lose them so she didn’t wear them. Every other day she hangs out in sleepers, and they have their own footies.)
5. Thermometers (Maybe it’s just my luck, but we got 3 of these suckers even though we only registered for 1 in a safety kit. AND it’s one of the things our hospital gives its new mothers when they leave.)
6. Those picture frames that have the spot for the picture and spot for length/weight/name etc. (It’s one of those things we got multiples of and we will not use more than one. I suppose I could give them to a grandparent, but it seems kinda silly. They have them of their own kids.)
7. STUFFED ANIMALS (everyone and their dog bought a stuffed animal of some sort. Why do people do that?)

Convesation On Yahoo Answers About Dog Training Classes

Carol asks…

Should I let my dog sit in the window sill?

I have a 3 year old plott hound mix who is dominant and we just started taking him to dog training class. They said no on the bed or couch with us but he loves sitting on a cushion in our bay window looking outside. He even likes to sleep there during the day is that ok? I really don’t want to take that away from him since he likes it so much.
The reason they said no bed or furniture because you don’t want a dominant dog to be at the Same level as you!

Yahoo Answers answers:

I was told that you’re not supposed to let them get up on the back of the couch to declare dominance. I guess any place higher than you they’re not supposed to be able to sit. I also heard your suppsed to pin the dog down and growl at it to show you’re alpha male, it made me laugh. I’ve never tried it, don’t plan on it either.
