I am looking for directions for a baby basket like a moses basket but without the basket. it is self contained and I have only scene one the sides are foam and the bottom a piece of plastic or wood I think. It has a hood like a bassinet for the head. The lady said she bought it at a craft shop somewhere. The instructions for use say it can be used for putting the baby in your bed to keep from rolling over on it or while on a trip at the hotel etc. It is adorable!! I would like to make one but have hunted everywhere for a pattern. PLeeeeeeease help Cindy

Well, my nephew C***** (He's about 6 months) came over, and he was a bit fussy. So I wanted to make him something to keep him occupied, but it had to have no small parts. So I made him a little rattle thing. You can't get the green rods out without taking the whole thing apart. Which is really difficult. I'll also try to incorporate it into a "noisy ball machine" I'm going to make.

OK so today I went to my local fish store and got 3 new silver mollies and some plants for my community tank, and after I floated the bag and was about to strain the bag to get the fishes out I noticed little fry in the corner of the bag. After I put the silver mollies in the tank I put the fry in my floating fry net. 9 little baby mollies :P <>< <>< <><

Bluebirds were nesting in a house in the backyard. Hadn't seen them for a day or two. Went out to take a look and there are 4 dead babies laying on the ground, sooo sad. We have a hawk in the area, would he have done this? Wouldn't think he could get his head in the house. Central WI area if that helps.

This brings to mind the concept of the Uncanny Valley except, it's not almost human-like... it's not really almost seal-like either, I think, but I've never been in close contact with a baby seal so how would I really know?Apparently this is supposed to be "healing". Not sure what kind of injury it would help with.Anyway, check out the video. The squeaking at least surely could have been done better...

I am about to endeavor to start making a quilt out of my children's baby clothes which are made of various fabrics, some of which are t-shirt fabric. I have never made a quilt before and really have no clue. I'm not thinking it will be perfect. I'm thinking of making 5 x 5 inch pieces. First question: do you think 5x5 or 6x6 pieces are a good size? Second question: for the t-shirt material, do I cut the square first and THEN fuse it to make it more stable? Or do I fuse first then cut into a square? I know I need to put 1/2 inch on all sides for seams? But still my main question is: cut then fuse, or fuse then cut? And really, it only needs to be nice enough so that I can gaze at it when I am older and it is covering my old painful knees and reminisce about my children when they were young. Thank you.

Hey guys, I'm trying to learn the Arduino Uno. Actually it will show up via fed ex in 2 days. I was thinking about using it to build a an electric baby gate for the stairs. One that slides vertically and maybe opens via PIR sensor when people come downstairs. It would probably stop using some kind of switch and have a failsafe in case it closes and someone is in the way. Any kind of help would be appreciated. Thanks. P.S. I am still learning the Arduino code

Hi, recently my brother and I found a baby snapping turtle on the road. Do you know how or what we should do with it? There is a pond down the road, but before you say we should release it, keep in mind that it is only a little over an inch long. Should we take care of it until it gets big and then let it go? All help is appreciated.

I am planning a baby shower for my friend and we are expecting about 50-100 co-ed people. We already have a place picked out and now all the details need to be planned. Please comment if you have any stories that you would like to share about a baby shower that you attended or hosted where things went wrong and how you think the "fails" could have been prevented or avoided. Post any definite no, nos! To add to that, if anyone has any success stories about baby showers that they have been to, please share what made them great. I still need great game, food, and center piece ideas for a large group. Post any must have's! The theme is underwater and we would like to have as many cheap and environmentally friendly things as possible.

There were 5 rabbits but 2 died and 2 we haven't found the reason we know there are five is because we saw them the day before ,but didn't save them because we thought that the mother would come back Then the next day we saved them when we noticed only one was living. something sorta lucky happened... when we were on our vacation to Pennsylvania the rabbits cage tipped over and the rabbit got out and hid some where in our house. but my brother that stayed home so some one was there to look for him. He couldn't find him after like 2 hrs of looking he so he told my dog to find him and sure enough she sniffed him out in like 1 - 5 minutes. He ended up right behind the computer I am sitting at.... as I fix my grammar and spelling errors. he is also as big as a soft ball now :P that thing grows so dang fast.

My neighbors and I found to baby robins that were out of their nest today. They have some feathers, but not a lot. we used gloves to pick them up and put them back in their nest but they would not fit so we put some dead grass in a flower pot and put that in a tree with them in it. We saw the parents around which means they weren't totally abandoneed but I don't know if they will return to them since they saw us near thier babies. What should we do? Any help is appreciated.

I found some more metal and decided to make a third Baby Bear knife. Thanks to Alan Folts for the original design. He sells these now and I did not like the price, so I decided to make my own. Here is a picture of the semi-finished knife. It has curly(flame) maple handles that I found in the wood pile. I would like to make a Kydex sheath for it, but have not found a source that will let me buy a few or one sheet at a good price. Still looking. Anyone know of a good source please let me know. I only need a few sheets to start with. Carbon graphite looks cool.

Almost everyone will be excited about planning a great party. There is huge expectation when it comes to hosting baby shower parties also. There are many kinds of parties which you can attend. However there are some elements which are essential to make the party a success. There are hundreds of baby shower ideas for dummies online. You must first of all know what events will find a place in a baby shower party. These ideas must also be heartfelt. The first important baby shower tip for dummies is with respect to the venue of the baby shower. For this baby shower idea you can take the advice of friends and family who have conducted such events lately and will have all the information. You can also search for information from hotels, restaurants etc where events are sometimes held or you can also find details from the local community center. You can also host the party in the form of an outdoor garden party.Baby Shower

Disasterous news - I snapped my Instructables Leatherman, that has been somewhere about my person almost every day for more than five years. :'-( It's not an actual blade, it's the awl, but it's still left a painful, jagged stump that stops the tool being pocket-friendly (see the second photo). Do I just grind the stump off smoothly, or can the awl be replaced? UPDATE: it cannot be repaired, only replaced, so I'm going to grind it down to a new, shorter point.

I kept hearing KEY...KEY...KEY... So I ventured out thinking it was some bird, I'm looking all over and keep hearing it. Search all over the yard, check the garage (it's trapped a bird before), nothing. But I keep hearing it, maybe it's coming from across the street? Man there's a lot of crap in the street, and it's moving, OH CRAP!! There's a squirrel dray in the street all torn up and three bloody, wet babies in the road. So I scoop them up into my robot shirt, where they promptly pee, not the worst thing I've had on me. ;-) I rush into the house and call my vet, since he used to rehab flying squirrels, and get the # for the "local" rehab place. It's in Bithlo, twenty miles away, that won't mean anything to you if you don't live in Fl. but it's the West Virginia of Fl, the nightmare before Christmas, and Baghdad all rolled into one. Let's cut this short, I got them there, the guy says they're in better shape than they looked, I gave them a donation for their care, and now I'm back home, realizing I'm nicer than I am reasonable, and that's okay with me...

I was outside reading by the fireplace when I heard a strange noise. I looked up and noted the noise was coming from Mazee's direction. It was a loud SQUEAK SQUEAK SQUEAK. I assumed it was her favorite squeaker toy. After about a minute, I saw a fully grown bunny sprint out of the trees next to Mazee. I laughed because Mazee loves to chase bunnies, and it looked like the bunny was taunting her. Mazee came trotting out of the trees with the squeaker toy in her mouth, squeaking away. She dropped the toy and it continued squeaking. Squeaker toys don't squeak on their own...I ran over there and what do I see? This little guy. Like all other times Mazee's found a baby, it was completely unharmed. I found the nest and put him back, I also put a doggy fence around the nest. Hopefully the mother will return.

I'm wondering if anyone has any idas on how I could make a cheap, portable baby yard style fence. For those who don't know, I'm talking about a 2.5'ish foot fence that can circle around and attatch to itself, essentially trapping your kid in an area. The commercial ones tend to cost 50 and up if you hope to give the kid a decent amount of area. I'm just wondering if anyone here has come up with a solution, or has an idea in their head that make work. Thanks, Tony

Hi dear lads and gals, I'm working on my Electrical Engineering bachelors thesis and it evolved into something that I couldn't have foreseen. I'm trying to build a baby monitoring package that would involve 3 major things; Baby's -Temperature changes -Breathings -Positions in the crib (in or out) and all these should be controlled through a mobile app. I have a couple of challenges. First of all there can't be wires all around the place to detect these changes and I'm not quite lost about how the package would be. I've experimented on a waterproof ds18b20 temperature sensor (got the temperature saved on a web server) and a flex sensor (thought of planting it under the crib) so far. For the breathings I thought of using a microphone but didn't really get my hands around that. What better sensor there are that would simplify the process? What should this package consist of? Any ideas/directions are welcome!

FYI to anyone who has or wants to know what you can feed praying mantis babies right after they hatch. The egg sack i have been "protecting" (i thought) til spring has just hatched a day ago and its only december, my plan was to let them go after they hatched in the spring, but since i didnt keep the sack cold, it hatched now. After i freaked out for abit seeing i have about 50 or more TINY mantis all over the container i put the sack in, i called and called ALL over but no one would take them, and i cant let them just die. Everything i read about them says they only eat LIVE bugs..and they have to be small...really really small..like pinhead crickets or fruit flies...well...YUCK..i dont want that in the house...but if thats what they need then so be it..UNTIL...i called a bait store and the guy (i wanted to KISS him for this info) told me to put RAW MEAT on a string so it sticks in small peices and hang it in the container..IT WORKS!! they went right for it!! SOOOO.........if you dont want or cant get tiny live food for them...FEED THEM RAW HAMBURER MEAT on a string!! this picture is the mom, isnt she beautiful! haha..i mean it!

Hello everyone, I am a first year Mechatronics engineering student. Well, I don't know where to ask about such stuff, but my question is: As a new oncle, I see my brother & wife worried about the sudden infant death syndrome, so like the baby stop breathing when his sleeping, so like every time he coughs or so, they get really stressed. For such a reason, I want to develop for them a 'breath monitor system' For that, how shoud I proceed ? should I use pressure sensor under him, to know if he is breathing or not, then if he isn't, make an 'alarm signal' ? Or.. some t-shirt / 'chest wearable' he wear, to see if his chest is moving, or not ? is it simple enough that I can learn about arduino / sensors & do it alone ? I had many questions.. hope I ll get some answers Many thanks !
