Beware 'container baby' syndrome: Durham expert says babies need tummy time, free movement
DurhamRegion.com
Check out any baby registry and you're likely to see a swing, Bumbo seat, vibrating chair, Jolly Jumper or exersaucer somewhere on the list. They're popular for a reason — it's somewhere parents can put their baby down safely for a few minutes so they can grab a shower, make dinner or take care of an older child. But experts say relying too much on these devices can lead to "container babies" who don't get enough time for movement and exploration.

Square One explains how babysitting activities may actually be considered as daycare operations
NorthumberlandView.ca
Eighty-six per cent of Canadians with children rely on some form of child care services on a regular basis. The monthly cost of these services averages $800 per child. And as many parents have experienced, securing child care can be challenging. Part of the reason is that there are approximately 10,000 licensed daycares in BC and Ontario but they only have the capacity for 15 to 25 per cent of children requiring child care in those provinces.
