Watch for Baby Milestones and Worry Less

Parenting a young baby?    

Congratulations!  You have one of world’s most demanding jobs.

It requires great stamina, intelligence, patience, and flexibility.  You work a 7-day shift, frequently alone, and often late at night. You get too little sleep.  Baby won’t explain what’s wrong, so you must use your wits.  When you do solve a problem, Baby changes and there’s a new problem.

Your work is often overlooked and unappreciated.  Baby doesn’t care about your needs. You may get support and help from family and friends.  Even so, parenting is a very hard job.  That can’t be changed, but I have some suggestions.  First, I’ll I tell you a bit about me.

My name is Warren Eaton

Now

I grew up in a small Western US town a long time ago.  I was fortunate to be educated in good public schools and two excellent universities, Stanford and Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I taught and did research on child development for 38 years at a large Canadian university, the University of Manitoba (details). I’m the father of four and a the grandfather of one, and I’ve been raising kids for four decades.

My university research was about how babies vary. We needed help from many parents.  Granting agencies wouldn’t give us the necessary money to do the research.  So we tried this new thing called the internet.  To make it easy for parents, we simplified technical language. We used web ads to invite them to join or studies.  Did it work? Indeed!  Parents worldwide answered questions about their babies.  We learned a lot.  I want to share what we learned so I created this website.  Kidtogeny.com is about online tools to help parents.

Is your baby younger than 2 years?

These tools are designed for parents of pre-walking babies. The tools will alert you to signs of progress that you would have missed.  Seeing progress is very rewarding. You’ll look forward to new signs. You’ll worry less. Growing and developing is how Baby rewards and thanks you. They can’t tell you in words.  Our tools will give them more ways to show their thanks.
